Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi all, my name is Ben and I am new to this whole online dating
deal. The best way I can summarize myself would be to say that I am
very laid back, easy to get along with and try to carry myself as a
true gentlemen when it comes to women (sounds cheesy and like a
line but I hold myself to a high standard). I am a military brat,
thus have travelled all over the country and the world. The coolest
place I have ever been would have to be Iceland, sounds crazy but
one of the coolest places on Earth. I enjoy anything outdoors;
camping, hunting, fishing, hiking, running etc. I could say that I
enjoy other things but it would take forever, like I said, very
laid back and down for anything. Also, I feel as though I mush
throw this out there; I am not the kind of person who considers
every person I meet as a friend. I prefer having a smaller number
of very close friends rather than having a bunch of people I barely
know and consider "friends".
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am currently going to UW-Milwaukee for a double major in
accounting and finance which I should finish up in year or so.
While I am in school I am trying to make some money by serving and
bartending at the Olive Garden and any other place that I can make
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making people laugh/smile, making great bloody mary's and cooking
anything on a grill...challenge me on the last two!!
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Definitely my smile but I could also say my eyes. They tend to
change from green to hazel to blue depending on what color I wear.

Big fan of Grisham (Pelican Brief, The Last Juror, A Time to Kill),
The Ambler Alert, Cobb, Angels and Demons
Boondock Saints, Out Cold, Major League I and II, For the Love of
the Game, all of the Rocky movies, Tin Cup, Field of Dreams (a bit
of a Costner fan), Charlie Wilson's War...a lot more but can't
think of more right now...
How I Met Your Mother has to be at the top, Family Guy, Tosh.O,
Ghost Adventures (fascinates me for some reason), big into wild
life shows but cannot really think of many other specific
I have been all around the country and tried a lot of different
types of foods. I love anything that is extremely fresh (seafood,
sushi), big fan of southern and creole food. Also enjoy making my
own handmade fajitas, burgers and southern style ribs...could go on
a lot longer but if you have read this far I'm sure your eyes are
getting tired and you are getting bored...
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Family is extremely important to me
2. Close friends
3. My dog Patton
5. Sports (Badgers, Brewers, Packers)
6. The Outdoors
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My mind tends to wander quite a bit, especially now that it is
summer time. However, most of the time I am thinking about
finishing up my degree and where that will lead me in a year or
two. When I am not concerned with school I am thinking about what I
can do when I get off of work (currently working 6+ days a week),
whether it be relaxing or hanging out with friends.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
If I am not working, I am either grilling/hanging out with friends
or out and about trying to have some fun. There are plenty of times
I decide to stay in and just relax with my busy schedule, but
prefer to hang out with close friends doing whatever.
