Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm always intrigued by the sheer volume of individuals on these
sites teeming with a vast array of intellectually stimulating
knowledge of books, world-wide travel, arts, and fine dining. All
of which has been experienced while happily going out or staying
I suspect I am rather more mundane and pale in comparison to the
masses. I’ve been told I am a challenging person to get to know.
I’m relatively quiet and low-key. When circumstances dictate, I'm
decisive and quick-witted. I posses a terribly dry and occasionally
unsophisticated sense of humor.
Most importantly, I'm a father to twin boys. A good portion of my
free time is spent doing kid stuff ... going to the zoo, riding
bikes to the park, playing video games, sports practice, school
recitals and volunteering with Scouts. I enjoy every minute of it.
However, as they get older I find myself looking to the future and
the opportunity to build a relationship of my own.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Trying to stay ahead of the curve.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Outdoor activities such as hiking or kayaking. Being obtuse. Mostly
on purpose. Occasionally because I find people confusing.
The first things people usually notice about me

I try very hard to avoid being noticed.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I am a news junkie and check a variety of sources throughout the
Movies: Event Horizon and Pi. Event Horizon is one of the most
frightening movies I've ever watched.
Music: I've taken to scouring youtube for remixes of popular
Food: Bratwurst, by far the best grilling food ever.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) My family.
2) A purpose.
3) Something to contemplate.
5) The internet.
6) Coca Cola (I wouldn't call it that in conversation; however, I
hesitated to leave it at Coke lest it be misunderstood).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The role of society. Considering all the various agendas and
motivations I am amazed anything gets accomplished at all.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Of late, it seems Fridays are just another day of the week for me.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've been known to watch Sesame Street, Curious George and Clifford
for my own amusement. This isn't private in any manner, just sort
of odd. I remember watching cartoons as a kid. Daytime television
is now over-run with garbage and the above are all that's available

when asked out for a drink or dinner to discuss the random,
everyday things which occur.
I find myself somewhat disillusioned with the window shopping,
checklist paradigm on these sites. I can't imagine meeting someone
in public, pulling out a checklist: What's your income? Do you
smoke? What's your stance on abortion? Can you do word association
and trigonometry in your head?
The normal, non-internet response is, "Do you want to do
something?" Do you?
Who are you looking for?
