Gregory Sherl’s OkCupid Profile
What I’m doing with my life
Getting my MFA in Poetry.
So what am I doing with my life? I ain’t doing shit.
I’m really good at
Finding the softest part of a body.
The first things people usually notice about me
I want to say lips.
But that’s probably not true. I just like typing the word ‘lips’. Also, if you switch the ‘l’ for an ‘h’, you get ‘hips’, & those are pretty great, too.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Monogamy Songs, Ghost Machine, Less Than Zero, Ham on Rye, Like Life, The Oregon Trail is the Oregon Trail, The History of Love, A Common Pornography, Words for Empty and Words for Full, Heavy Petting, Jesus’ Son, etc. etc. etc.
Movies: John Cusack holding a boombox over his head;
John Cusack petting a dog; John Cusack owning a record store & talking to the camera.
Music: Kanye West, The Babymakers, Voxtort, & Weezer (circa 1996).
Food: Burritos, Valium, Vicodin, & thighs.
The six things I could never do without
2. Being touched
5. Smoking cigarettes while drinking coffee
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Dana Scully in a pantsuit.
On a typical Friday night I am
Pretending to be taller than trees.
& thanking myself for writing the Bible.
& always at night I am hiding from spiders.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Page 70 of Monogamy Songs.
I’m looking for
Girls who like guys
Who are single
For new friends, activity partners, casual sex
You should message me if
You bought my book.
Or if you think I’m cute enough to touch.
