You will try to discern the OK from the great
There will be many selfies of bros with their abs
And the rugged outdoorsmen who fish and catch crabs
Some are hip with long beards and a bike with one gear
Most will talk of their time spent abroad for one year
They will brag of their journeys so far and so wide
And their hobbies including a love to hang glide
There is food to discuss: what they like, what they don’t.
And restrictions thereof: what they can’t, what they won’t.
You go back to your own set of guidelines to eat
To decide if it even makes sense to go meet
They work hard at their jobs and they want you to know
That they love what they do. Inner angst does not show
But passions and interests and facets galore
Guaranteeing of them that you never will bore
They know art, they know music, and books and TV
Good taste on display, but of course you agree
Some come off kinda rough, self-absorbed and unkind
You swipe left through those guys ‘til a sweetie you find
And you swipe and you swipe, for they all look the same!
And you land on a poem that’s really quite lame
To stand out on this site is a challenge so big
And I hope Dr. Seuss is a gimmick you dig
swing dancing. In particular, I do Lindy Hop, Balboa, and Charleston.
writing. My Facebook friends seem to find my status updates entertaining. Yelp bribes me with free booze in exchange for my reviews.
cooking. To be precise, I'm really good at it only when I'm not really bad at it.
If you haven't seen What We Do in the Shadows, drop this profile and forget about me. Go watch it. Whatever potential joy you could possibly obtain through knowing me for any length of time, even a lifetime, is handily eclipsed by the hilarity of its 85 minutes. You'll thank me later.
Silicon Valley, the TV show, is shockingly accurate and hilarious. Thank you, Mike Judge. Westworld is absolutely brilliant.
Do you like jazz? Pre-bop or post-bop? If it's the former, let's chat. If it's the latter, I have lost interest in you. kthxbye
As for food, I am quite adventurous and appreciate almost everything, except for bad food. And cilantro. Don't let that vile herb come anywhere near me. I have long considered opening a restaurant called No Cilantro. It would offer a fusion of Mexican, Indian, and Vietnamese cuisines in a safe cilantro-free environment. You laugh now, but mark my words, cilantro-free is the next gluten-free.
(If you are inclined to send me a message expressing bewilderment at my aversion to cilantro, I recommend first reading some of the science behind it: http://www.flavourjournal.com/content/1/1/22
I also have had my genome sequenced, and have a confirmed anti-cilantro genotype)
Various supportive people in my life. Thanks to you. You know who you are.

Cheese from anywhere except for Consider Bardwell Farm. I'm so over it.

Ok folks, sorry, that one wasn't original. I'll do better next time.
