Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm the creative type who likes people who express their creativity
in any number of ways, from music to writing to art to programming
to any kind of imaginary ways of expressing oneself. And with a
good bit of humor, to boot. A sarcastic vein is a plus. :)
I'm a gentleman. I value sincerity and like people who are
authentic, straight-forward, honest and don't play games. Drama is
a bore to me.
I'm a townie. I like living and working and hanging out in the
city, but love ventures into the countryside -- rivers, mountains,
beach, et al. -- to get away from the usual.
I'm also an individualist -- not really with the norm, and value
people who are their own being. I'm not a hipster or other label --
just my own self.
I prefer people who think for themselves, have a creative bent, and
know in their heart that gay people should have the right to marry.
And pot should be decriminalized. (But I am not a smoker of. Maybe
once or twice a year.)
I work at an ad agency, won several ad and design awards, and have
a nice house ruled by a cat I rescued from downtown when he was a
stray kitten. (I'm really a dog person, but my kitteh's cool with
I've become a Gamecock football fan, but I love to watch soccer
anytime. I like most kinds of music (excepting country unless its
old or alt, and hip-hop unless its smart and not misogynist), like
to see good bands, love to dance, and will one day figure out the
meaning of life.
But for now, I like to enjoy good times with good people drinking
good beer (or wine, gin, etc.) over great conversations -- with a
tinge of inanity thrown-in just for kicks.
And sometimes the front porch or the couch bests a night out when
it's time to chill and escape with a good book, a good movie or TV
show, or marvelous music under a calm conversation into the wee
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
See above summary, and in addition: I've taken-up landscaping the
homestead and internal improvements as well. It's a slow process,
believe me. Blah blah blah becoming a better designer and writing
more than I used too, pick up my old guitar and play again, that
kind of thing. But always learning. Love to learn something new
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
And making people laugh and, once and a while, think about
something new. I'm good at listening and sharing my thoughts.
Programming a play list for a compilation CD or party.
I'm really good at coming up with ideas and creative solutions.
Like when back in college, fixing the carburetor with a toothpick
and golf tee.
And sneaking out of work undetcted early on a Friday. (not that I
can't leave early, it's just a litle game for me)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My silly walk (I got a grant for it, I did!). Kidding -- Monty
Python moment there.
I guess my eyes, then chin. That I listen well and make
conversation funny when it needs to be, and sincere when it's

Good pale ales/IPAs/Porters/Stouts/Gin

the things I need to repair in the house/car. Ongoing projects at
work (you never know when a great idea will strike!). My purpose.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Typically: HG happy hour with friends, or just myself to think,
read or write -- outside table preferably. And Art Bar later.
Unless there's an art opening or new movie at the Nic, or just a
porch sitting to attend.

I’m an empty essay… fill me out!

I was in an a capella troupe in college. Shoo-wop!
