Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
A small town boy who's slowly realized he's spent more years in The
City than anywhere else....
I'm a techie who'd just entered online dating in 2010. After a
series of long term relationships, I'm hoping to meet someone who's
also learned from such experiences. I love to travel and see this
period as simply another new adventure.
I'm formerly well-educated. But I've found that running my own
consultancy, volunteering, and serving on non-profit boards have
taught me much more.
Water makes me happy. I drink lots of it, and I crave being near or
in it. Yet, it's been far too long since my last Scuba trip. I swim
regularly, practice yoga, and find I'm now biking more and more
places. Would you be up for a spin?
I enjoy folks with a good humor who don't take themselves too
seriously. Especially those who are socially conscious and
If you're curious to find out more about life, it'd be fun to meet.
Maybe we'd even want to share a path.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I've managed to go from the salaried corporate world to having my
own technology consultancy. And the business has been good for me
for over 20 years. While I will work late hours or rare weekends, I
do a good job of balancing other important things in my life.

situation. I'm also told I add a lot of adventurous energy.
...taking conversations to the next level. Dialogue's important for
any healthy, growing relationship.

Music: Eclectic. Ranging from Western Classical to 80s pop,
Ragtime to folk music from around the world. I suppose I'm not

Film: anything directed by Ridley Scott, Pedro Almodovar, the

David Cronenberg; anything starring Matt Damon, Julianne
Johnny Depp, or Meryl Streep; with an obvious bias towards
fiction and queer cinema because anything is possible.

due to friends attempting to make me more cultured. ;-)
Books: my bedside table has a tower of unfinished travel
from recent trips, a Philip Dick collection, and two new books
Folks wonder how I can do so much in a week, but I'm one of
rare few without a television. No problems with it, just
time for it. I'm busier with The Times, listening to NPR, and
with friends. Be assured that during SuperBowl parties, I'm the
glued to watching the commercials.
Although I eat to live more than live to eat, I'm rather
adventurous. I'd prefer trying a wide assortment of foods with
