Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm the reliable, trustworthy, and loyal type. But I also know how
to have a good time and I think I'm fun to be with. I'm honest.
Everything on here is accurate and I don't mind if you want to
check. You can Google me and you'll find that my info on here is
true and complete.
I'm the father of two great boys, aged 12 (almost) and 14. I'm
devoted to them, along with our goofball dog. I've been raising my
boys, though lately they're spending half time with their mother. I
don't need a new mother for them, they already have one, though I
would certainly be open to dating someone that has her own kids (I
like kids, but I also enjoy adult time).
I'm not looking for someone to "complete me" or make me happy. I'm
already happy (though always trying to learn and grow). I'm looking
for someone who is also positive, optimistic and happy and wants to
share the adventure of life with a like-minded soul mate.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I have a good career as a consultant in the aviation industry but
am looking for someone to share my time and life with. I travel
some, often to pretty interesting places, and would love to share
I've achieved a certain level of success and financial
security/independence in my career. Now I'm looking to sustain that
while also expanding my interests. I'm also interested in
broadening my social circle.
I'm getting back into yoga, starting to fly again and want to learn
to play the violin. (Why oh why did my parents ever make me learn
the piano? Just not for me.) Edit: okay I've just started learning
guitar, so I guess the violin will have to wait, though playing
another string instrument might make it easier? I don't know; at
least I now own a metronome. ;)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Communicating. I believe in honesty and kindness and try to treat
everyone with dignity and respect (well, unless they prove they
don't deserve it, and sometimes even then).
I'm pretty good at training dogs.
I'm very good at my job and know how to fly an airplane.
I'm a very good father.
I'm a decent cook and enjoy it. Lately I'm experimenting more with
natural, healthy cooking as much as possible.
I'm the stable, level-headed, reliable type. Don't go out with me
if you're looking for drama.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've been told I have a "radio voice." I interpret this to mean "a
face made for radio." ;)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Any spicy food is usually okay by me. My reading is typically
non-fiction or historical fiction, although I've also read the
Economist cover-to-cover every week for over ten years
I like a wide variety of music, pretty much everything but jazz and
anything with racist or misogynistic lyrics.
TV is mostly news or sports, Daily Show or Colbert, Breaking Bad,
Walking Dead, Louis CK, the IT Crowd (hilarious Brit comedy on
Netflix if you haven't seen it yet) or movies on-demand.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My 2 boys.
Now the rest I "could" do without but would greatly prefer not
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I'm a planner so I think about the future often. I believe in
life-long learning. It keeps the brain active and nimble, so I am
usually trying to find something new to try or learn. Lately I'm
using Coursera for this. I just finished the Social Psychology
class on Coursera and it was absolutely great - highly recommended.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Every other week I'm with my boys, either watching a movie, going
to a pool for a swim, etc. In between, I'm sometimes out with
friends at a good restaurant, or hanging at my place having a drink
(I have a great house for hosting guests), or once in a while just
relaxing at home after a long week.
