Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am kind, loyal, honest, fun loving, with a laid back demeanor.
I'm typically very active. I love riding my bike. It makes me feel
free and alive. That probably sounds lame, but it's true. I also
picked up a kayak this year. Getting out on the water has been
fantastic. I've been playing ice hockey in a pick up league. It's a
great workout and a good stress reliever. I tried a cyclocross race
in the heat a few weeks back. That was kind of rough. Frisbee golf
is always a fun reason to go take a walk in the woods. Tennis
anyone? Anyway, I think you get the point. So, when I'm not at work
or squeezing in an afterwork ride or something, I'm usually
catching up with some friends for dinner, or hanging out with my
brother and my niece and nephew.
What's usually rattling through my head on a long bike ride? Good
question. Family, friends, work, dinner options, boats, nature
along the path, the car that just pulled out in front of me that I
almost superman-ed over the hood of. You know, standard
I am hoping to find someone that is my companion and friend.
Someone that is family and friend oriented, patient, gentle, warm,
open, and honest. Someone that supports me and challenges me both.
Hopefully, someone that has enough get up and go to enjoy a
Saturday morning breakfast and coffee, go for a bike ride in the
early afternoon, meet up with some people for a grill out for
dinner, then decide if we are going check out that band that is
passing through at The Met that evening, head over to a friends for
a few beers around a fire, or just head home for a movie. See...now
that sounds like a relatively action packed Saturday. If you've
made it this far and that sounds sort of fun, please read on.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Currently, I design toys for kids. It's nice to think maybe I help
bring joy to children. I used to design bicycle components and
accessories. Perhaps I brought some joy to adults too. Who knows? I
feel like I'm rambling about nothing. Does anyone else out there
not really enjoy talking about themselves...?
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Family and Friends go without saying!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Not a lot of time thinking about...but some time thinking...that if
you have kissy face profile pict or a booty shot profile
pict...you're probably not the girl for me...
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Out with friends to dinner, grabbing a few beers, having some
laughs. Otherwise, enjoying a movie night in.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm a sucker for romantic comedies. It might sound lame, but man, I
just can't handle gruesome life drama stuff all the time. I feel as
though I am bombarded by terror and atrocities every time I turn on
a news program, or a daytime tv show, or a prime time tv show. It's
a complete oddity of realtime horrors. Let me watch any fantasy or
sci fi program to transport myself to any fictitious place for even
a few hours to get me away from the realities of our mainstream
thirst for pain, brutality, and gore. OR, just put on a rom com so
that I can laugh along with a gentler side of reality and life.
Anything is better than the constant IV drip of shock and awe
programming that saturates today's media. Alright, clear the way,
I'm jumping down from the soap box...
