I truly dislike the 'about you' section. Makes me feel like i'm prostituting myself in the hope of being worthy of some admiration on a lucky day or at least a brief pause on an average one. Kind of reminds me of high-school. None of us know what to say in these things, so we just pretend to think of ourselves as approachable in the hope that we may recognize a friendly face in class. I'm not the only one that hated high-school.
I like to read, but when I pick out a book I'm always disappointed by the description on the back. That brief small paragraph designed to suck you in. It's often as disappointing as that movie you've waited two summers to see with all the hyped up previews. These 'about you' sections are reminiscent of the back of the book for me.
And me, I'm a last page girl. I always read the last page first. If you know how something ends, you're compelled to read the beginning and between. I sometimes wish you could do that with people, read their last page first just to make sure everything turns out okay.
If I do read your 'about you,' and you didn't use witty enough adjectives i'll still appreciate the fact that you took time to write it. Chances are, if i'm invested enough to read your 'about you,' It's for a reason.
People are complex. Too complex for a paragraph to contain. Maybe we are all similar to badly written 'about you sections.' We're all just filled with nonsense and the point of all of this life is to revise and re-read in the hope that one day we might have some sort of understanding.
