Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hello my name is Bernie and I am bringing back chivalry in a big
way! I am looking for someone to get to know and hopefully be in a
long term relationship with. I try to be a perfect gentleman at all
times (the modern concept of “gentleman” originally came from the
“courtesy book” derived from the medieval code of chivalry). I am
looking for one woman, and one woman only and I do not cheat, ever,
no exceptions. I am an Eagle Scout and I lead a troop of boy
scouts. I see myself as a very loyal, courteous and friendly person
all around. I am not however very good at spelling... Bad spellers
of the world UNTIE! If your looking for a good guy who respects
women and can still care for himself then I am your man! Of course
if your looking for the bad boy vulgar ruffian then I don't come
very well recommended I suppose.
Every knight needs his lady of course! If you think you are my type
then the biggest thing that I look for is trustworthiness. I want
someone I can talk to, tell them how I think and feel. I am looking
for a partner and I want that partner to understand me. This is a
two way street though, I want to understand you as well. I want to
be someone that you can talk to and trust. I once played a card
game where one of the first rules was “there is an exception to
every rule” and this is the exception to that rule... I am not
willing to bend on trustworthiness.
My lady must also be intelligent, fair minded, and loyal. If your
silly, witty, bubbly or in some other way fun to be around that's
awesome. In fact I find that to be attractive. Honestly as long as
your not downright dumb, we can probably get along.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Currently I am finishing up my degree at Husson University. After
that it really depends on what is open in the job market. I have a
job now that I really enjoy but it isn't where I want to be with my
life (hence the reason I go to school :p) I have a plan where in 8
years I will be starting my own business. I have several options
that I would enjoy and I am not going to attempt to narrow them
down till I get closer to time. Its fun coming up with
possibilities for each and with the market fluctuating I cant
really predict what will be in demand 8 years down the road.
I lead a troop of boy scouts. We are very active and I try very
hard to be a good role model for them. I do not see this changing
any time in the near future.
Other than that, I hang out with friends and read books. I just
finished "Towers of Midnight" in the Wheel of time series and I
cant wait for the last book to come out.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I am a hobbyist, I tend to get really good at one thing and then
move on to another. However my main strength is my ability to plan
ahead. I am an excellent thinker and can usually reason out any
I also tend to listen and give advice really well.

I am assuming this means other than physical appearance so going
with that... I would say people tend to notice my manors first. I
am a very well spoken and polite person, even under pressure and in
hostile environments (my boss loves to tell me to deal with
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
My favorite books are by far the Wheel of Time series. It is such a
shame that Robert Jordan (the author) passed away. However, Brandon
Sanderson has picked it up beautifully and the series will have a
Favorite movies consist mostly of comedy, Rat Race and Rush Hour
are the ones that really stand out. I did enjoy the resident Evil
movies though I don't usually like horror movies and the Bourne
Trilogy was pretty awesome.
For music I tend to listen to primarily rock. Disturbed and
Aerosmith are my favorite bands but I don't really refuse to listen
to anything other than rap.
For food I like a good mix of things. I am a very good cook so I
regularly cook the things I like making it very hard to pin down
something that I like and yet dont have often enough to get used to
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.

My current project (whatever that is at the time)
Raw food, hard to cook without it
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The future is where my head almost always is. I am always
contemplating possibilities, strategies and contingencies. I like
having a plan and analyzing that from every angle so I don't get
surprised. When I am not thinking about the future its probably
because I am playing problem solver and I am usually quite good at
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Sadly I work until 9 pm Fridays (10 pm over the summer). Its pretty
draining as Fridays are our busy night but it makes time go by
quick and I do like my job. After that I hang out with whoever is
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Im pretty open about just about anything. As a matter of fact I
think here is a good place to post a challenge. Ask me any
question, any at all, and I will answer it honestly. I dont know
too many people that will claim that but I have seen at least 1
other person do it. Its not hard to be honest.
Also the site has changed a bit since the last time I logged in and
I am having a bit of trouble finding the search button.

You should message me if...
You have a question for me,
You think I am your kind of guy,
You know a good joke,
You want to mess with me,
Really any reason I would love to talk to you.
I have a minimum of 21 age limit because I want to avoid the
"please buy me alcohol" situation. Frankly age maters little to me,
I am looking more for someone at a decent maturity level and place
in life rather than hard set age. If you aren't going to put me in
that situation feel free to contact me at any age.
