Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm an outgoing, intelligent, and down to earth man with a lot
going for me. I've been referred to as a "S.I.N.K.," i.e.,
"single-income, no-kids," and I'm loving every minute of it. I'm
active and don't watch much TV. I get to the gym and play
volleyball/soccer several days a week, I'm very musical, enjoy
reading, working on my house, hiking/skiing, and spending time with
I'm single by choice, and because I'm picky (and because I can be).
I've watched a lot of relationships make a lot of people miserable,
and I'd rather die single and happy than with the wrong woman. But
I'm hopeful that the right woman is out there and just as picky
searching for a guy like me.
I feel like I'm more likely to meet a good match in Wegmans or
Barnes & Noble than in a bar. I'm attracted to intelligent,
independent women who think big and respect themselves/others. I
want a girl who wants to be with me, and not one who needs to be
with me. I'm not attracted to smokers or women with children
(sorry... not that I don't ever want children, but I'll have to
ease into that). I eat well and take care of my self, and I'd like
to be with a girl who is like-minded.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a licensed engineer with a passion for bringing sustainable
principles to our increasingly disposable society. I've been
playing various musical instruments since the 4th grade and still
write and record music (mostly rock & hard rock) in my spare
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Starting conversations with random strangers, getting to the roots
of problems, grilling a steak.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
You mean aside from my stunning good looks and a smile you can
bring home to Mom (... crickets)? I don't generally draw a lot of
attention, but I'm perfectly comfortable striking up conversations
with very random people.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.

(Arundhati Roy), though I read mostly nonfiction on topics of
sustainable development and the impacts of development on

(though my response to "have you seen ___?" is usually

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Reason, friends & family, music, good food, exercise, sleep
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What I'm doing with my life and what I can do to improve.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Out getting dinner and/or a beer with friends, watching SU play,
taking it easy playing my guitars
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
For a guy who listens to mostly rock, it's sometimes difficult to
admit when a Lady Gaga or Katy Perry song comes on that I sort of
