Things about me:
I'm originally from Southern California and I moved to WA three years ago. My time here has consisted of design, dive bars, kickball, petting dogs, being compared to the unibomber, and having conversations with strangers in bars.
If we exchange messages I will probably ask you to happy hour or something else fairly quickly. I'd just rather meet in person... and I will never ask you to coffee. There are certain principles in this life I am willing to compromise, but getting to know you over the backdrop of "endless sipping noises and clinking spoons" is never going to happen.
I am sincerely un-hip... hopefully you would describe that as "charmingly un-hip", and not "tragically un-hip". This is ok though, because I'm open minded and willing to talk about why you love the new [POPULAR SOCIAL THING] so much.
When I moved to Seattle I did so for no particular reason. After being here about a year I decided I should buy a house... for no particular reason. And now I'm filling out an online dating profile... you can probably figure out the reason for this one.
Getting drunk and having conversations with strangers, and sometimes people from the internet. If this doesnt sound like your thing, pretend I wrote about camping or rock climbing instead.
Words. I subscribe to "word of the day" emails... if you send me a response back with "WORD OF THE DAY!" I will reply back with today's entry.
Lists. To the point that sometimes when I get something done, and it wasn't on a list, I will write that item down and then cross it out.
Speaking extemporaneously. Just try to find a subject I cant talk about and endlessly tangent off of.
This question should be re-titled as, "humble brag about yourself and then use mild self deprecating humor to make yourself not sound like a douche!"
That I talk loud. I can't help it... I have the type of voice which tends to carry and when I'm excited about something I tend to RAISE MY VOICE WHEN I TALK ABOUT IT AND... oh, sorry... see, that's what I was talking about...
I eat any type of food-- any. Especially foods that others tend to loathe because I like things that are distinct. The exception to this is gefilte fish, which I'm starting to believe is just an example of the jewish people trolling the rest of us. Its a gelatinous mess.
I read a lot... judging by what other people usually list in this category for books, I am probably familiar with the authors you read.
TV: Its Always Sunny, Archer.
Movies: Yes, lets go to the movies!
The Universe. The increasingly likely idea that this universe and everything we have ever known is a hologram. What it would be like to endless bifurcate as I fell into a black hole. What gamma ray bursts are really like.
Why so many people have the ubiquitous weird-angled pictures of themselves rockclimbing. I rock climb on occasion and I think its great that you do as well, but cant you just tell me you like to rock climb, and Ill take your word for it? I think I already know what you look like when rock climbing 200 yards away... like a speck of a human in a harness against a rock cliff. It's tough to tell the difference between you/anyone else/Danny Devito in some of the rock climbing pics.
How anytime I go back and read my own profile I am absolutely mortified by what I wrote and how I come off. Yes, like Skynet, I am somewhat self-aware.
I just dont care about your instagram. At all.
You are the type of person who orders something off a menu specifically because you don't know what it is.
You got that the Phil Collins stuff was a joke.
You like bar trivia, and would like a partner.
You get that having conversations is more than just questions and answers.
