Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Where to start...I guess at the beginning:
1967 - I am born. Fireworks, angels with trumpets, sort of a big
deal. It was in all the papers. Well, just the one local one
1970 - I'm finally able to talk but realize I don't have that much
1973 - Realize girls are different than boys. The biggest
1976 - A girl breaks my heart for the first time. I vow to never
ask a girl to "go with me" again.
1979 - Break my arm in the first baseball game of the year -
1982 - Tell my friends I have sex for the first time.
1985 - Actually have sex for the first time.
1988 - Turn 21! This year is pretty much a blur.
1991 - Fall in love for the first time. Breaks my heart. Definite
1994 - Start a relationship that last 3 years.
1997 - End a relationship that lasted 3 years - you probably saw
2000 - Spend a month traveling the world, starting my love of
2003 - Spend a year taking care of my cousins while their parents
are in Iraq. Hard year.
2006 - Start playing for USA Baseball - get to play in Cuba.
2009 - Get engaged! I'm sure this will break my pattern of having
my heart broken!
2012 - Or not. Yeah, so that didn't work out. And neither did the
one after that. So here I am trying this out. It's tough. I want a
long term relationship but I'd rather be alone than settle for
something that isn't what I want (or what the other person wants).
I want to find someone active and in similar size and shape but the
key thing I'm looking for is someone I can count on and trust. Like
my friend Eric says, "she needs to have your back". And I want a
relationship where both people are equally invested and both give
as much as they take. I guess, I'm looking for a partner - it
shouldn't be this hard!

I like all music except for country and even that I can sit through
if I have to. But I particularly like current alternative music
(think Airborne Toxic Event, Death Cab, Arcade Fire, Metric, Modest
Mouse, Silversun Pickups, etc) and 80's alternative (think the
Smiths, Cure, New Order, REM, etc).
I love going to the theatre, especially musicals. I read every day
- sometimes serious, sometimes just fun stuff (I've powered through
the Game of Throne series the last month - good but long). I'm also
reading The Signal and The Noise by the brilliant Nate
I love sushi but can enjoy most foods. Peanut butter is the food of

Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

Either with my friends and their kids or just relaxing at home.
Sadly, some of those nights I might be working. And now that I'm
