No matter how much I like to write shit on the internet (and I do), I can't help but think there's something a bit crass about asking me or someone else to describe themselves right off the bat. I'd rather sidle into it a bit. Then if we decide if it's less than unlikely that we'll end up spilling our guts to the blank and awkward apathy of someone who, we've all realized too late, could never be anything but a stranger, okay, fine, I'll spill my guts. Otherwise I imagine you accidentally happening upon my soul here, it looks like one of those pale, half-dead worms you see on the sidewalk after it rains a lot, and raising a single justifiably skeptical eyebrow.

You're into the concept of arete.
You too can screw your courage to the sticking place, but prefer messaging cuties on the internet to regicide.
You'd like to recommend a book to me to maintain plausible deniability for wanting to ask me out while establishing contact. Or you'd actually like to recommend a book to me.
I'm dating some other people. Perhaps you are too. I will refrain from asking you to have a threesome with anyone as the price for getting to know me. I hope you extend the same courtesy.
