Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am an inspirational figure, often seen posing majestically on top
of cliff faces and skyscrapers that I have free-climbed in record
times. I negotiate terrorists into trying bacon 'just to say
they've tried it,' and have designed a line of paper clips which
can combine to form fallout shelters in ten easy steps with minimal
carbon footprints. On weekends I teach animals to play the
soundtrack to 'Casablanca' on the piano dressed in coats and tails.
Women are overcome with passion at the sound of me ordering meals
at the drive-thru in iambic pentameter. I brew beer that is so
bittersweet that it has taught hermit crabs the meaning of
heartache. I have speared sharks, walked with wolves, and helped
hawks with their penmanship. I am known on the island of Saint
Lucia as 'the white death,' in the Rockies as 'strongo' and by my
friends as 'hey stupid.' Clowns fear me and mimes gossip as the
sight of me. I counsel exotic birds over hair loss issues. Sperm
whales exist because of my legendary negotiating skills. I know a
little about a lot, and a lot about a little. I have memorized
Shakespeare, delivered a particularly large baby, and won
cliff-diving competitions in the Himalayas.
The short version is: I'm a brewer who is an avid reader, writes
(just for myself), lifts, and loves animals. I'm very athletic,
very smart, extremely loyal, have eyes that change from green to
blue (happens a lot with us Irish), and tend to laugh a lot.
Although I am fairly lighthearted and joke around quite a bit, I do
take life seriously, am extremely goal-oriented, and plan for the
future. I just don't see why life shouldn't be something to laugh
I was skeptical about this at first, but I recently found out that
two of my friends found each other on here. Here's hoping!
I also am new to Hawai'i from San Diego, so I'm still exploring. If
anyone has any suggestions, I'm all ears!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I've been a brewer, (a great) teacher, bartender, and like to write
(for fun). Playing a mean game of scrabble. Being really, really
I'm in the Navy, and just moved here. I'm signing up for classes
while I'm here as well.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Other than that... I'm a fair hand at writing and brewing, I cook
like an angel ... lots of stuff. I'm good at stuff. Stuff is the
operative word here.
Referencing stuff. If I said something that sounds a bit unusual
then it's a safe bet I made a reference that fell flat.
Impressing ladies. Here's a review.
"10/10, would let him touch my butt again" - my dog.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
People tend to tell me I look like people I don't know. A pair of
older women in my local See's keep telling me that I look like
someone off of 'Grey's Anatomy', I've also gotten a young Gabriel
Byrne, someone from one of the 'Bioshock' video games, and several
others. I only know one of the people on that list. This happens to
me at least twice a month.
Also, when I don't laugh people keep telling me I look like I have
whatever the male version of resting bitch face is. A cashier at a
cafe I study at said that they all thought I was 'mysterious' until
I started joking with them.
I asked a couple lady friends how they'd describe me, and they said
"Charming... caring, understanding, [I'm] pretty sure you could
always get me to laugh." Figures - not one thing about my butt
Also, another friend describes me as "Harry Potter mixed with
Obi-Wan, with some serious Han Solo overtones." It's THE nicest
thing anyone has ever said to me.
7/14 - apparently I have 'incredible eyebrows'. Yep. That's how
I'll draw you in!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: way too many to list, but sf/fantasy, biographies, and
history are favorites. Hemingway, Henley, Pablo Neruda, Tennyson,
Robert Jordan, Brandon Sanderson, Stephen King... a ton of others.
If you like Name of the Wind, then we need to talk. NOW. I'm just
starting on a book by Joseph Campell.
Movies: mostly stupid humor (Young Frankenstein, Zoolander, Hot Tub
Time Machine, Murder By Death etc) and classics. I usually love
Woody Allen (Midnight in Paris, Bananas) or anything with with
Bogart. If a woman breaks out a 'To Have and Have Not' DVD or line
then my brain does that thing where it takes all my focus on
breathing for a bit. Action movies are fun, too. Firefly speaks to
me on a spiritual level.
Music - All over the board, but 90s music will always have a
special place in my heart. Lindsey Stirling and Woodkid are my
studying music. At the moment. I have never been in a situation
that couldn't be improved by the Rolling Stones' 'Gimme
FOOD: Italian, Irish, Mexican, Vietnamese. The best part of going
out to eat is seeing if there's something new I can try to make at
home. I like to cook a lot - last month someone gave me an Irish
cookbook and I railed through four or five recipes in a day. It's
relaxing. Just no cheese. Also: not really a big fan of eggs. No
idea why. Craft beer, obviously.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Not in any particular order...
2) Interesting beer
3) My family
5) My pets
6) A creative outlet
If they mean survival stuff then I guess I missed the call of the
question, didn't I?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to do well at my dream job, the future, etc. "Why do people do
that" Also, 'wouldn't that be an awesome idea for a story?'
What's this shirt made of? I swear to god it's so soft it must be
made of synthethic chinchilla fur. Someone pet me.
As you can see, I'm like a Calvin & Hobbes comic strip. I tend
to have several thoughts running through my head at any given
moment if I'm not zeroed in on a project or a conversation or what
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
At the gym. Quietest night of the week there, and if it's not
crowded then it's almost meditative. If I'm not there then I'm
probably exploring the island.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I go absolutely stupid for about fifteen seconds when I see a
pretty girl with a braid and a book. I don't know why it's such a
turn-on. It just pushes all the right buttons. And get smiles?
At any given time my PC probably has at least a dozen tabs open and
I'll forget what's there. If it looks like I've been on here for
three days straight I'm probably not obsessed with answering all
the questions so much as forgotten that tab's open.
Aaaand if I don't see any books listed in the 'likes' section I
sometimes get a suspicious squint going.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're sweet, loyal, and can hold a conversation. Love a girl who
is smart and fun, and a little sass never hurt anyone.
I'm finally settled in (mostly) so if you'd like to know more, feel
free to message me - I like meeting new people!
