Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I've tried different approaches here but I feel like it's hard to
convey one's personality in a few paragraphs. So with the caveat
that everyone is more than a few sentences of description, here
I am above all looking to meet intelligent people who are able to
understand different points of view. I value a good sense of humor,
attention to detail: you should take some things seriously enough
to seek to do the best in that area, whatever that may be. I also
care about the physical and by this I don't mean to come off as
superficial. I enjoy many outdoor activities and I find that being
in good shape reflects a certain self-discipline in the same way
that cleanliness does. I've found that in my successful
relationships there was a healthy mixture of both physical and
I also profoundly understand that one must always be willing to
accept compromises concerning people you care about. I will be
flexible with those who aren't too rigid. Life is not in black and
white, it's what makes things interesting. I would describe myself
as having a wry sense of humor and I am social: I need a certain
amount of person to person interaction. I also aspire to finer
things in life: a nice wine, a well-prepared meal, an intelligent
comedy, the symphony orchestra etc. I also enjoy a good football
game (a big Badger fan).
In my free time, I enjoy activities such as:
- Piano (learning to play for a bit more than a year now)
... and much more.
If you would like to know more about me, please send me a message.
I am looking for a particular kind of person and I know what I
want. If, perchance, I do not replay to your messages, I don't mean
that as an insult. I just don't want to waste your time.

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
