Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi I'm Greg. I'm looking for second dates. First dates are fun, but
second dates are the thing. I'm hoping for something between a
hookup and picking out china but I also want to be surprised. So
I'm a busy guy...I have a corporate-drone job I actually like, I'm
a writer, bicyclist, jogger (too slow to really be called a
runner), blogger, reader, foodie, homebody, motorcyclist and
I'm often into guys younger and slimmer than me, but I often get
tingly for a guy who's taller than me or older than me. Self
confidence is the hottest thing there is, and I'm pretty hot. I'm
also completely open to being surprised by stuff other than what's
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm working, writing, acting, laughing and reading. I'm spending
time with friends, exploring art, and generally trying to just have
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Hmmm...I'm a pretty good writer, I'm good at cooking, I'm really
good at communicating, I'm really good at parallel parking, I'm
really good at making oatmeal, I'm really good at setting
boundaries, I'm really good at my job.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My beard, I'm told. I was all insecure when my beard went gray, but
it's apparently not a bad thing. People also notice my laugh.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
It turns out my iPhone is pretty damned handy, although it's
embarrassing to admit it. My motorcycle, although in Seattle I
mostly just look longingly at it in the non-summer. My bicycle,
although it sits unused next to the motorcycle a lot. My friends.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The plot twists and hidden hints in Game of Thrones, how to do my
job better, the exactly perfect right word for a poem, where I can
next ride my motorcycle. You know, random shit.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Hanging with friends, watching a movie, getting outside. I often
think I'll stay up and go out to a bar, but then the effects of the
week catch up and I don't.
