Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm Dave. I moved to Las Vegas a couple years ago and I'm
definitely looking to meet people and make friends. Meeting people
outside of work hasn't been easy, and maybe OKC isn't the best
place for it, but I'm trying it out.
I like to get out, go places I've never been before, learn how to
do things, and/or have a story to tell afterward.
I'm honest, opinionated, and patient. I try to be approachable, but
I'm on the introverted end of the spectrum. I am a geek though!
That means if we find a topic of mutual interest, I can talk all
I'm laid-back for a geek, but don't be shocked if I would rather
play a board game than watch a sporting event. They're fun to watch
sometimes, but not really all that interesting.
That's it for the "I, I, I.."
Who are you? If you're reading this far, tell me
about yourself; Don't just rate me. If I messaged you, don't just
say I seem nice. I am nice; it's not news to me. :-)
If you're on here for a good reason, know that I am too, and I made
this profile hoping to create a positive effect on my life. Give it
a shot and I will do likewise.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I graduated from Purdue a few years ago and am now working in the
space industry in Las Vegas! My career currently consists of fun
and challenging engineering projects.
I read a lot, watch shows and movies for entertainment, and
generally always work toward the next step, laughing all the way.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Other things, maybe some that don't make me seem like a robot
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Hard to say, likely the blue eyes or sexy beard.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Fictional book: Pretty much impossible to pick just one. I would
say that Diamond Age by Neal Stephenson (everything he writes is
amazing) and Night Watch by Terry Pratchett are up there.
Movie: Shawshank Redemption, probably. I'm always up for a new
movie or talking about movies. I catch every science fiction or
Pixar movie in the theater, but otherwise it's pretty random.
Suspense is my least favorite genre.
Show: Arrested Development, probably. I like a lot of comedy and
watch pretty much all of the sci-fi shows, predictably.
Food: As a cuisine, Thai is awesome. As a single dish, an excellent
steak can't be beaten.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A place to call home
Games? Eh, not really, but I'm scraping the bottom of the barrel.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
...almost everything! Facets of this include movies, music,
science, technology, politics, food, etc.
The future of the species, of myself, of my family, of my friends,
of the nation.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Reading, or spending time with friends. Maybe grabbing a drink,
bowling, trying out a new restaurant, going to a show, or playing a
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
...I'm afraid of people who operate without a consistent guiding
philosophy, which is something I have no way to knowing for
certain. To put it succinctly, I have trouble trusting people and
worry about other people too much.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are willing to talk on the phone or meet for coffee. I am not
opposed to texting sometimes, but it is a much easier to gauge
compatibility, not to mention get to know someone, with a real
conversation. It's quick, it's easy, we both get experience
breaking the ice, and you'll even get free coffee out of me. How
You have some confidence in your intelligence.
You are happy, but strive for a better life.
You won't scoff at the idea that I would like to go to space
someday. Bonus points if it sounds like the trip of a lifetime to
you as well, or even if you know anything about the space industry;
I'd be pleasantly surprised!
