Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
People have said that I have a generally warm disposition, I know
how to treat my friends and family with the utmost love and
respect. I do tend to be shy at first in social situations, but
given some time, I usually start the social process with some wit
and humor, which my friends say I have in ready supply.
I am a scholar, a geek, and a passionate man at my core. I enjoy
learning things about the world and its cultures, enjoy some pop
culture and technology like video games and the Internet from time
to time, and I pursue all things in leisure, career, and personal
relationships with the same determination and drive. Some people
say I'm an old-fashioned kind of guy, the kind who treats women
with respect and with chivalry, and they would be correct.
The type of woman I'm attracted to is a woman who is intelligent
and passionate, with clear ideas of what she wants in life and the
determination to go for it. Someone who enjoys learning about
anything, be it a new hobby, random knowledge, or someone willing
to teach what they like to others to help them understand, because
that's certainly a trait of mine. My ideal is just someone to
experience life with and enjoy all the comforts and pleasures that
it has to offer :) Staying active and healthy is also important to
me. I enjoy running and swimming when my schedule allows it (which
currently lets me get back into the groove). I've even participated
in Indy's mini-marathon and probably would do it again.
Good conversations are a no-brainer with me. I can talk about any
kind of topic, even those that most people would stay clear from
without judgement or bias, whether it's about movie preferences or
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
After 3 long years of graduate school, I'm trying to find my place
in the world like so many other souls. I have a general idea where
I would like to go, but you never know what might be around the
corner. Currently I'm working in the non-profit sector at a local
library as a circulation assistant. I enjoy my work and I look
forward to seeing where it can take me :)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Paying attention to detail- I enjoy people-watching and I tend to
analyze conversations using my mind and impressive memory. I have
had many good conversations with friends and family on a variety of
topics, and I have a real knack for pointing out contradictions.
From a relationship point of view, I rarely miss an anniversary or
someone's favorite something, and I never abuse my knowledge. With
great power comes great responsibility.
Plenty of energy- I always do my best to stay active, so I always
have a powerful amount of energy throughout the day. This serves me
well in many different aspects of daily life, and I do so to go to
sleep knowing I accomplished something truly awesome today.
Other things involve cooking, relaxing, singing and playing music,
listening, socializing, meditation, photography, learning, and just
loving life and loving people.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I guess the first thing people notice is my height. I've been
called everything from giant to bigfoot about it, so It's nothing
new. After that it would be my eyes and my smile, which people have
said seem like there's always something on my mind. 90% of the
time, they're right, because I'm always thinking.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books- I try to stay well read, but there's only so much time in a
day. I generally stick with classics like Sherlock Holmes or a more
humorous title like Denis Leary's Why We Suck, but I'm mostly open
to any genre. (Except Twilight.)
Movies- I LOVE movies, so much I'll watch a movie and memorize it
to playblack in my mind when I'm super bored. I enjoy classics,
comedy, horror, action, the whole nine yards.
TV shows- Shows I'll actually go out of the way to watch if I can
are the following:
Top Chef, Doctor Who, Wipeout, Biggest Loser, Burn Notice, South
Park, Animal Planet, Auction Hunters, 1000 Ways to Die, CSI,
Adventure Time, and other particular shows that catch my fancy.
Even original videos on Youtube have caught my eye.
I am open to a lot of different stuff however.
Music- Open pretty much to anything with an awesome beat, but I
tend to enjoy classic rock, electronic, and classical/classical
remixes. I find that putting a violin to anything makes it
instantly better, no matter the genre. Lately, Irish folk and rock
have been climbing my playlists, and I'm ok with that.
Food- Anything Spicy. Like Fire-in-your-mouth-please-make-it-stop
spicy. Ive eaten ghost chili peppers and Florida death hot sauce,
its the best. Region-wise, I gotta go with Italian over anything
else with Japanese as a second, although all food is potentially
good with me.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. My MP3 Player/music- When I'm working out, at school/work, or
just relaxing I am always enjoying music. If not, then I just sing
to myself, and although I have a great singing voice, seeing a
giant sing random songs just looks weird sometimes.
2. Ground Red Pepper/Red Pepper Flakes- I love my food hot.
Seriously, I mean HOT. Plus, it energizes my mood, metabolism, and
to some degree, my libido. What's not to love?
3. My Laptop/Cell Phone- My contact to the rest of the world as
well as a prime source of personal entertainment and a weapon of
4. Skim Milk- Can't get enough of the stuff. I go through like 2
gallons per week. It's just so good after a long
5. The Internet- I use the internet a lot to do work and research,
unwind with some youtube videos, check e-mail and communicate with
friends, or manage my finances. Without it, I'd be in real
6. Family- My family has really been there to support me with every
choice I've made with my life, and they continue to be a source of
support to keep me going when some days get tough.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either hanging out with friends watching a movie and playing some
games or I'm chilling at home with some music and a good book. Yes,
exciting I know, I like it too.
I do enjoy going out sometimes with friends, although i would much
rather prefer spending some quality time with a significant other,
whether its a exciting night on the town or an even more exciting
night at home :)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

If I told you, that would completely ruin the fun of finding out
for yourself, would it?
