Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi there! Won't you come on in and sit a spell? When guests visit
my home I tell them that in my house, you can throw all your cares
away, be yourself and not have to worry about a thing. Well, I hope
you feel the same as you read whatever random stuff I have to say
In brief, I'm a "young professional" by day, "mellow stoner" by
night, looking for a special lady and partner in
I just put on a pot of coffee, would you like a cup? Star Trek mug
or Bob Marley mug, your choice? I have Splenda and French Vanilla
creamer in spades.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I got a fuzzy little pit bull doggy I'm trying to be a good father
to. He was a stray wandering around on the frisbee golf course I
adopted over a year ago. He is uber high energy and often a
handful, but he's my good snuggle-bud :-) Before I had him, I used
to make fun of people who gushed over their pets but....I GET IT
Also trying to be a responsible home owner and pillar of my cool
neighborhood a few miles from downtown Decatur. Mowing the lawn,
grilling out burgers and brauts, hanging with my neighbors, ya
Been with the same IT-related company for 10 years, where I
currently specialize in Communications/Training. Not particularly
exciting, but I get to interact with a diverse range of interesting
people, all of whom have to listen to my dumb jokes and pretend
they're funny, so that's pretty effin sweet.
Some info that may be important to you, about me:
- I don't drink, but don't mind being around drinking or dating
someone who does, it's all good. But, I will say that if you get
"sloppy drunk" more than like, every-other-month, I don't think I'd
be able to deal.
- Having said that, I do enjoy smoking the doobie. It's like my
main vice these days, not counting greasy foods or lethargy. So, if
you ain't "420 friendly" (in the parlance of our times) we would
not be a good match. Don't be such a flippin' square! Jk...but not
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making people laugh, I suppose. I do enjoy inappropriate and
bizarre/absurdist humor. Which means that I'm also really good at
making an ass out of myself on account of the awkward clunkers that
don't land as intended. But, I'm also good at making fun of myself
after such awkward incidents, and that's usually really funny, so
it all works out.
I also have done a lot of writing in my time, both in professional
settings and creative writing. I'm often tinkering around with
poetry, novels, screenplays, etc. that I'm working on just for fun.
I've done National Novel Writing Month a few times. I keep telling
myself that one day I'll make a big push to do something (like
publish) one of these projects, but I don't think I've found the
right one yet. Or maybe I'm just waiting for my muse? (Cue 80s song
"Send Me An Angel" by Real Life)...
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm hoping the answer is "my ruggedly handsome facial hair."
I fear the more accurate answer may be "the haphazard manner in
which my shirt is tucked in."
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I'm unapologetic of the fact that I'm a huge nerd, so I'm mostly
into "genre stuff."
Love the author Philip K. Dick, though I read only pretty
intermittently as of late. Also love the novel The Naked and the
Dead by Norman Mailer.
For movies I'm a big fan of Horror, Sci-Fi/Fantasy, and
goofball/stoner comedies. Top 5 Fave Movies off the top of my head
are: 1) Goonies, 2) The Big Lebowski, 3) The Exorcist, 4) Alien, 5)
I'm a huge Trekkie. Current shows I'm into include Dr. Who (COMING
BACK SOON!), American Horror Story, Game of Thrones, True
Detective, Supernatural, Grimm...yeah my DVR sees some
Musically I prefer classic rock or most of what's on the
"alternative" stations. I also like some electronic/trance artists
that friends have introduced me to over the years. My faves ever
are David Bowie and Tom Petty.
With food, I can deal with mostly anything except seafood/sushi. I
particularly enjoy barbecue or a good steak.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
This is a stupid question and I hate it. In fact, I boycott
I will instead answer this question: "If you could choose a super
power, what would it be?"
I've thought about this a lot. If I were to use the power primarily
for crime fighting, I'd pick telepathy/mind control. If I could get
into a bad guy's head Professor X style, I'd just make them turn
themselves in. Minimal effort and collateral damage. However, if it
were only for personal use, definitely flying/teleportation. Mainly
so I could revisit some of my favorite travel destinations and see
lots of new ones.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Heavy stuff, man. Well, sometimes. Like "Through the Wormhole with
Morgan Freeman" type stuff e.g. What does consciousness really
mean? Is free will real or just an illusion since all of our
behaviors and emotions can be explained by chemical processes in
And sometimes stilly stuff. Like Why is my dog obsessed with
hoarding all my shoes? Or Why does every asshole that rides a bike
in Decatur wear spandex as if they're a real bicycle racer person?
I don't want to see the intricate contours of your butt cheeks. NO
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
On the couch with a friend or snuggling with Buddy my dog, doing a
J and watching a DVRed program or something on Netflix.
I also enjoy going to new restaurants and have been seeing a lot if
films in the theater this summer (mostly comic book movies and
sci-fi stuff...for example, Captain America 2 kicked ass). For
dates I enjoy sharing artsy experiences like art galleries, seeing
a play or art house film, or just casual coffee and
I'm pretty low key in general, but like to do outdoorsy stuff like
disc golf and day hikes.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Um...I kinda suck at dating? Even if I act confident and collected,
I tend to feel crazy nervous on dates. But practice makes perfect,
right? So, here I am, trying to rise above it and whatnot.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You've read the above and think we may hit it off. Ultimately, I am
looking primarily for long-term, monogamous dating. But, it's
always cool to make new friends so if you want to start there, why
not give me a holler?
