Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Well, shit. Here we go, to the devil with false modesty...
In a nutshell I'm: quirky, a good communicator, prefer quality over
quantity, organized, tattooed, efficient, hilarious (even if only
to myself), & intelligent... I’m a lover of animals, gardening,
music, wine, making lists, keeping things organized, finding new
adventures, and overall consider myself to be a good man. I have a
career, a home that I love, tend to make good decisions, and am
financially and emotionally secure. These are also traits that I
look for in a partner…
I'm glad that I grew up on the east coast and developed work ethic,
driving skills, and assertiveness. That being said, I've been out
here long enough to have most of the west coast personality traits
wear off on me. It's really the best of both worlds...
This whole online dating thing kind of gives me the willies
sometimes. I feel like it’s kind of a cross between a shitty dive
bar, QVC, and the Sears catalog...
I'm vegetarian. Have been for a long time, and it's a lifelong
decision that I've made. You certainly don't need to be, but mutual
respect is a must...
I feel like I'm a perfect gentleman with a very dirty mind...
I'm an INTJ to a T.
I always use my blinker and never park on the wrong side of the
I'm currently beardless (mostly). This has a tendency to change
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I would estimate that I spend 20% of my life in self-induced
awkward situations. It keeps things fun, keeps me entertained, and
keeps people guessing...
I keep myself sane throughout the week with yoga, dog walks,
reading, gardening, music (which is almost always playing either
over the speakers or in my head), cooking amazing dinners, and
tending to my bees.
I have a fairly interesting career that can be very serious and
sometimes stressful, but very rewarding. I've had the opportunity
to travel the world and help a lot of people along the way. I also
have lots of gross stories about cadavers...
I'm a proud homeowner, and bought what was essentially an unlivable
crack house and turned it into my own private oasis. I can't begin
to estimate how many hours I've put into my place, but it's my home
and I love it. I try to be a steward of my land, and have created a
really awesome little sanctuary in the city. I have three gardens
that take up the majority of my yard, so you’ll likely see me
weeding if you ever walk by.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Adapting to my surroundings.
Keeping plants alive and flourishing. Between my gardens and house
plants this could practically be a full time job!
Paying attention to minute details and recalling them at a later
Picking out a good bottle of wine.
Making friends with puppies.
Finding just the right amount of spice to use.
Coming up with unique solutions to difficult problems.
Fixing things when they break.
Ooo, and doing beer & wine pairings with food... I've been
having a lot of fun with this one lately!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I'm obsessed with music, and can pretty much appreciate anything
with a few exceptions: Anything that has "Christian" in front of
it. Modern country hurts my ears. Most rappers that weren't around
before the 90's.
I love books. Usually have several going at any given time.
Currently have the following going:
Superintelligence: Paths, Dangers, Strategies by Nick Bostrom
Our Mathmatical Universe by Max Tegmark
and Sex at Dawn by Christopher Ryan
It's very unlikely that I will ever pass up eating Indian.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I can live with very little, but here are things that keep me
Human and animal companions
The ability to break the rules
The ability to capture moments in time through photography
The ability to hear music
The ability to travel
Vice of the moment
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
All of the amazing things that our species could achieve if we
weren't spending so much energy on violence. Imagine if all of
those engineers and researchers were working on medical
breakthroughs and eliminating the need for petroleum instead of
finding different ways to bomb the shit out of one another... I
actually think about this a lot and don't think that I will ever
How do I get myself out of this mess unscathed?
How exciting it would be if pterodactyls still patrolled the
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Making the devil blush...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I often wish that David Attenborough would follow me around and
narrate the minute details of my day. Sometimes I have this
narration going on in my head using his voice. Is that weird?
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You should hit me up if you're not a chicken shit and want to say
more than "Hi" in your message. Or if you'd like to grab a beer,
head to wine country, go for a hike, play a game of scrabble
(possibly over a beer or in wine country), go on a photo shooting
adventure, go see some music, cook an amazing dinner together,
wander through some botanical gardens, or wander around a record
Honestly, I have very little desire to chat for an extended amount
of time online. I feel that you can learn more about a person
within ten minutes of meeting them than you can with endless
messages, so let's just do one of the things listed above and see
if there is a spark. If not, I'm always open to bringing awesome
new people into my life as friends...
