Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
38 years old, 5'8", living on the North side in Bucktown and
working downtown. Never married, no kids.
(BTW, I'm for-real 5'8". 68 inches tall. I've been told by several
women that dudes lie about their height on here, so just wanted to
throw that out there). When did you get so height-centric,
Some random facts about me:
Between a bad incident with some ice on the driveway several years
ago, and a skiing accident in 2013, I've got a ton of hardware in
my lower left leg. The X-rays look pretty cool. Like a cyborg or
Grew up in a small Midwestern town. My high-school graduating class
had only 80 kids. My friends who grew up in the 'burbs always seem
to be amazed by this.
I'm one of five kids (second oldest).
Spent five years living in Utah, just outside of Salt Lake City. It
was a great location, and I still miss being so close to the
Not a big sports guy, just never really got into it growing
I have been known to be: a little OCD, kind of high-strung, a good
drinking buddy, a decent runner, loved by animals, Moms, and little
kids. I'm kind of disorganized, and there's always a pile of
laundry to be done. I'm sort of a homebody, and if it’s a question
of heading out to the bars or staying in and watching a DVD, I may
opt for the DVD. I'm always up for an adventure though, and have
always been someone who's willing to try anything once.
I'm a bit of an introvert, I guess, who has his extrovert moments
from time to time.
I'm not looking for anything super-serious right off the bat. Would
like to find someone to hang out with after work, go on the
occasional trip, and just kind of enjoy spending time with each
other. Life can be a pain sometimes, but it's a lot more bearable
if you have a shoulder to lean on. Or at least someone to sit with
in the bar and bitch about work with!

Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I don't get a chance to read books as much as I would like,
but when I do it's usually non-fiction. Most recent read was a book
about working for the UN in war-torn third-world countries in the
Movies: The Untouchables. I love how they were able to recreate
Shows: I don't watch a lot of TV, but I love anything with a good
story arc. Most recently been following Justified, and I'm forever
disappointed that Firefly was cancelled. Lately, I watch way too
much Archer. I still find that show hilarious, no matter how many
times I've seen an individual episode.

How do I lose another 10 lbs?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Probably just chilling at home, unwinding from the week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
There is a question on here: Are you happy with your life? I'm
always kinda amazed by the fact that 98% of you answer Yes. I
answered No. I mean, I'm not necessarily unhappy, but dang, I'm not
entirely happy either.

you, and 90% of how you react to it.
