Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My name is Adé. I have lived in Chicago for just over three years
now, by the way of North Carolina. Sadly, I don't have much of a
southern accent any more, but not to worry, I'm still a southerner
deep down. I still love deep fried food, sweet tea, *real* BBQ, and
most importantly, I am still a gentleman.
I live a pretty active lifestyle, including biking any time the
weather cooperates, working out a lot, and running! I'd love to be
with someone who also enjoys being active! I'm from the mountains,
so I love the outdoors and a good hike.
I can be a little spontaneous a times in search of a new adventure.
I've taken a 50hr train ride "just because" and will rarely, if
ever, pass up a road trip. If you need someone to go on a random
trip with, just let me know!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am a Art Director/designer/artist and I truly love what I do. I'm
always busy, working very weird hours, but it's definitively worth
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
...Being creative! That's what I do for a living, so I try and
inject it into all parts of my life.
...Waking up RIGHT before my alarm.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm pretty sure most people would say my arms. I have "one or more
BIG tattoos." Or my single hoop earring. I love my single hoop
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Most recently, I have been reading the A Song of Fire and
Ice series (Game of Thrones). I am also a big fan of books about
social behavior and the way we as humans think. I love the Gladwell
books and others like them.
Movies: I like a lot of corny movies... Forrest Gump, Remember the
Titans, The Green Mile... Can't help it.
Shows: Law and Order SVU, American Pickers, Game of Thrones and
Music: I will literally listen to just about anything. My music
likes range from 2pac to John Mayer. Odd, I know. Most recently, I
have fallen in love with Blues. Maybe because of this year's long
winter? Not really sure.
Food: I am not very picky when it comes to food (other than not
eating red meat), as I am willing to try most things at least once.
I really love BBQ (huge bonus points if you know the difference
between barbecuing and grilling out), and I am on a mission to find
the best Chicago has to offer!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
There's not much I honestly couldn't do without. I would like to
say "my phone" but have you ever left phone at home and realized
how liberating it is? For the sake of this question I'd have to
1. My sketchbook/pencils/pens
2. My computer
3. A pair of good running shoes
4. A cell phone
5. My bike
6. Oatmeal (plain 'ole oatmeal)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
...if Momma was right. If we each have a destiny, or if we're all
just floating around accidental-like on a breeze. I think maybe
it's both. Maybe both is happening at the same time (told you I
couldn't help it).
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I don't think there is much of a "typical" friday night for me.
Sometimes I go out with a few friends, or I can be found sitting on
my couch catching up on some design work. It all kind of depends on
the week I've had.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
...you'd want to go on a bike ride, or a run, or just some sort of
adventure. You should message me if you are open and willing to
meet new people and have fun! Finding friends on here is equally as
important as finding a date.
