Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
At this point in my life, I believe I know what is really
important: Children, Family, Health, Great Friends, Rewarding
Career and...FUN, FUN, FUN! It is the latter that we tend to set
aside with all the demands on our time. Looking forward, however,
it is FUN that I will be moving up in my priorities!! How about
Oh, you want examples?
How about chartering a sailboat in the Caribbean? Taking the kids
camping in beautiful sites all over the west? Playing Cards Against
Humanity while "sampling" martinis? Relaxing in tropical resorts?
Creating the perfect pizza at last? Enjoying the experience of golf
no matter how well we play? Having your ten year old daughter beat
you at Scrabble? Singing Highway to Hell when you damn well feel
like it? Arguing over what the best sushi restaurant in Portland is
(ask me!)? Chartering a Limo to take you wine tasting with friends?
Listening to live blues and feeling 25 again?
Are you feelin' it?
So let's talk compatibility...we would probably NOT be a fit
- You worship George Bush or Mitt Romney
- You think a gun hanging in the rear window of a pickup truck
- You have a body piecing for every week of the year
- You are unemployed, underemployed, or just flat out want someone
to upgrade your economic status
- You think smiling is for sissies
- Riding ten miles on a bicycle would kill you
- You don't like kids
- You don't laugh at least several times a day
If this doesn't make sense, then we probably aren't a fit. If you
find yourself smiling when you read my profile, then we may very
well indeed be a fit!
C'mon, what do you have to lose?
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Exercising mind and body
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Cooking (I'm actually pretty creative with this!)
Sailing (been too long though...)
Pumping people up
Being a loving dad
Analysis (yeah, sorry about that...I'm an engineer by education)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My eyes (trite, I know)
I'm loud when speaking on the phone
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Dostoevsky's work, British
Naval stories (Hornblower, etc), The Endurance, Jack London,
Alexandre Dumas, and a whole lot of other classic author's work. On
airplanes I tend to grab trashy suspense novels and forget them in
about a month.
Movies: Not into them lately.
Shows: Anything live is great, although not Veqas cabaret
Music: Classic rock, some grunge, reggae (Marley is a god!), blues
especially live. I am currently working hard on learning "Highway
to Hell". It is a real experience to hear me sing along with my
guitar playing...you have my word on that!
Food: Almost everything. Special favorites are GOOD sushi, a
perfect steak, apple pie and great NW IPAs, like "Hop Henge". A
personal goal is to create a perfect pizza.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Time to think
Bodies of Water
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My next great adventure
If the U.S. political system is going to ever pull its head
How to pay for my kids' education
How I'm gonna find a way to get another sailboat
How much fun we're gonna have when we meet
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Talking to the kids and crashing after a heavy-duty week
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am not fond of heights and needles freak me out
