Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
The thing I am most proud of in my life is being a life-long
learner. Although my formal education ended with a bachelor of
science degree, I could never decide on what subject to pursue a
higher degree in, I have continued investigating other random
subjects I have found interesting over the years. This has made me
fairly good at trivia if nothing else. Things that everyone says,
I'm nice, easy going and an intelligent man. In the warmer months I
try to keep busy, hiking with the dogs, kayaking, that sort of
thing. At this point in life I always thought I would have settled
down with someone nice, it seems most of my friends have married
and are working on multiple kids now. For whatever reason luck in
love has just never really happened for me, so I thought maybe a
site like this would increase my odds of meeting someone nice. I'm
generally up for trying anything at least once. Well almost
anything, I'm not an adrenaline junky, so no sky diving or things
like that. Other things I don't really like are a bunch of pomp and
silly protocols. Avoiding those sort of things are almost a second
hobby to me lately it seems. I like keeping things casual and fun
as much as possible.
My ideal match would of course need to be open-minded, interested
in new things as well. Spontaneity is a big plus, but mostly I like
someone with a kind heart who is not pretentious or too uptight and
hung up on protocol and that nonsense. I have eclectic interests
and try to keep my mind busy, so my match would hopefully be up for
trying new things, like restaurants, or hiking out someplace we've
never been before, or taking an interesting class and even more
ideally have new things to share that could open my mind to ideas
I've never thought of before. Someone who was up for some witty
banter, like in old Cary Grant movies, would be a plus as

They say the world was created in 7 days, but it took 9 months to
create me. So obviously I'm a pretty big deal.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Always learning, trying new things, looking for new interesting
people to chat with about new ideas, mostly just making it up as I
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I've been told I'm a good listener. I'm an information sponge, and
just love learning something new. One of my hobbies is gardening,
I'm really good with plants and animals, it just comes naturally.
I'm learning to cook, so hopefully I can brag on that soon!

That's a tough one, I'm not really sure. Perhaps my height?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Really I like a show with strong, quirky characters. Some of my all
time favorite movies include Aliens, Ghostbusters, The Shawshank
Redemption, Slap Shot, and Monty Python's Holy Grail. I sometimes
like to tell people my favorite movie all time is a foreign film
(The Good, the bad and the ugly).
Music: I listen to everything basically. My favorite genre is
blues, but since that's not on the radio much, mostly classic rock,
hard rock or sometimes country. They say music is a lot like candy
bars, getting through the rappers is the toughest part.
TV: The Mentalist, Elementary, South Park, Community, Archer,
Breaking Bad was also an amazing show. My all time favorite show is
probably Frasier. Everyone talks about how high brow it was, but it
could often be quite goofy and slapstick at times.
Books, Ender's Game, The Hitchhiker's Guide series, The Lord of the
Rings, and various, diverse blogs.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
The internet - What an age we live in to have such a wealth of
knowledge at our fingertips!
Something new to see or do
Things to tinker with
Air-Water-Food-but I suppose those are givens?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Who put the ram in the rama-lama ding-dong?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I'm not sure there is such a thing as a "typical" Friday night. I
plead the 5th on the grounds that it may incriminate me.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I know what a tetraquark is, but not how it's put together, but
then no one does yet.
