Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a tree huggin', Jesus lovin', Chicago native.
Liberal Progressive, Utopian even. Outgoing, extrovert that loves
to get out and about, when I come across something or someone that
sparks my interests. My usual demeanor is a good one and I work at
maintaining a smile throughout the day. I don't allow myself to get
hung up on minor things. I like to recycle, volunteer, try to
adhere to a greener lifestyle and afford eating organic whenever
possible but come'on.. I'm human and will cave for the typical
A quick detail about quality of life I should add. Since 2014 I've
made a lot of changes. For instance, although my profile says
social drinker, I drink far less than a social drinker might. This
is merely because I'm paying more attention to what goes into my
body. Choosing to workout more often, go on walks, be active and
live a healthier lifestyle. I like to cook with fresh ingredients,
will cook organic whenever possible. (Which is usually.)
And lastly, I love to learn new stuff. Whether it's cooking, DIY,
figuring stuff out, trying my hand at a new hobby, etc. I strive to
learn something new everyday or research some topic that's been in
the back of my mind.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working it. Really. I work in property management I'm kind of a
veteran at it. I'm also planning on making a switch to public
relations and SM marketing.
I'm passing the time trying to do as much as I can. Learning,
reading and doing. I have an entrepreneurial spirit and commit
myself to philanthropy. Currently back in school to finish my
undergrad and a couple semesters away!
Also dabbling with the idea of a small business attempt in
In the last year my folks had gone through some surgeries &
related health issues which left them in a place of needing
assistance & support to get them back to their daily lives. As
the oldest I stepped up, helping them with their recovery process.
I mention this solely because I realize some daters out there want
a (possible) significant others' undivided attention. At present,
part of my routine is getting them back to 100%.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Catchphrase and maintaining healthy relationships with close
friends and family. Carving pumpkins, discovering new and useful
apps. DIY projects. I Google & watch how to videos often. So,
for instance I might learn to re-tile a washroom floor one morning
or make chocolate pudding with avocados in the evening. Lately I've
been mastering cooking and those that have sampled think it's
The first things people usually notice about me

Earnest smile, dynamic beard cut and awesome at hugs. It's probably
my wide shoulders, people like bear hugs.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I played an instrument growing up so my music tastes are all over.
Music is a high for sure and depending on my mood I could go from
classical to dubstep to latin jazz to ?? I like many types of
genres of movies, I often watch independent or foreign flicks &
documentaries as well.
I'm a self proclaimed proletariat foodie. I like trying to score
decently priced tickets to local concerts, attending Riot fest and
other local concerts and more.
Lastly, I've been cooking A LOT more. I make pizzas with my own
sauce, soups, stews, roasts, I'll dabble in ethnic cooking and at
times try my hand at baking and desserts. I have a "brocipe" or two
that would blow your mind.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Why some people find it hard to say please or thank you. Also why
some humans yawn like lions and bears without covering their
Modern relationships and the communication we've lost due to
technology. I dig getting to know a woman (during the getting to
know you phase) via the old fashioned means. Talking in person or
by phone. Constant texting and or instant messaging doesn't clue me
in to the inflections or moods revealed in real conversation. I
like telling a woman I want to see her and receiving the nonverbal
feeling that she too has interest. Additionally getting a call on
some random day or a voicemail from a significant other with a
simple "hello" means far more than a text with an electronic smile.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
A bit of studying, then headed to a friends house for a gathering
of libations and games. Or trying a new dive or restaurant.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Judging from some of the profiles around here, there are quite a
few with false ages and details. Also, how much photo-shopping is
necessary? (This means to edit photos to look younger, etc)
