Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi! My name is Matthew and I currently live in Dunwoody, GA. I am
what you might describe as the typical nice guy ... I'm friendly
but shy, loyal and caring, and definitely a bit of a nerd. Once you
get to know me, you'll see I'm very open and warm but I also LOVE
sarcasm with anyone that will play along. My family is extremely
important to me but I also enjoy having close friends to spend time
When it comes to my free time, I love to watch and play sports
(even though I'm far from being a pro athlete), I'm a big fan of
reality TV, and I've been known to play the occasional video game.
I also enjoy doing things like theme parks, mini golf and bowling,
casual shopping, going to the movies, playing cards and board
games, and eating!
I was born in South Florida but my Dad's job has moved the family
around a bit. I lived in Atlanta and Phoenix when I was younger,
went to college at North Carolina (Go Heels!), and lived/worked at
Walt Disney World after college.
I am definitely an ambitious guy but I tend to also make decisions
with my heart. Life requires balance between logic and emotion so I
try to mix the two the best way I know how. Recently I have been
focusing on my career but I'm ready to shift that to starting a
family when I find the right person to share it with.
If you'd like to know more, please feel free to ask!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm very excited to finally update this! I started my career in
sales but finally have moved out of that area and into a position
that is more suited to my values and interests. I am currently
running a Customer Service Center for a non-profit healthcare
organization specializing in Home Health and Hospice care. I enjoy
the job that I do but I am looking forward to one day winning the
Powerball jackpot and becoming a high school teacher. Once money is
no longer a concern, I can truly follow all of my ambitions.
On a personal level, I'm just trying to find the right social
balance for myself in Atlanta. I've started playing a number of
co-ed intramural sports at both the JCC and public leagues to meet
some new people but I also very much enjoy my quiet time at home. I
very much enjoy having a few close friends so that there are people
to hang out with when I'm feeling outgoing but not so many that I
don't have time to just relax and unwind from work.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
It may sound a bit cheesey, but I consider myself really good at
being a close friend. I love to listen and can usually find a way
to get along with anyone. I am definitely shy but that doesn't mean
I'm not interested in what people have to say ... it just takes me
a little while to get comfortable and be completely conversational
myself. Relationships are extremely important to me (personal or
professional) so being nice to everyone is a must because that's
just how people should be treated.
Outside of that, I tend to have a lot of useless sports knowledge,
I'm not too shabby at video games, and I like to think I'm good at
making people smile and laugh. I'm also happy to take you on in a
game of mini golf, some bowling, laser tag, or midway games.
Playful trash talking optional, but encouraged.
Oh, and I'm a pretty decent cook as well! I like to get creative in
the kitchen and I'm not afraid to try and create a new concoction.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am quiet when meeting new people, but I also like to be extremely
polite and smile. You never know where any relationship might take
you so it's important to treat everyone with respect.
People probably also notice that I'm not the most stylish guy in
the world. While I can certainly dress up for appropriate
occasions, I generally prefer my own personal style and comfort
over what's trendy and popular.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books - Harry Potter series, Forrest Gump (yep, they wrote a book
after the movie), and anything with good jokes. I don't read a lot
of books but every now and then something captures my
Movies - Major League, Forrest Gump (yep, they made a movie before
they wrote the book), Harry Potter series, and in general I like
romantic comedies, musicals, and anything Disney. I'm still trying
to get over how much I enjoyed Rock of Ages!
TV Shows - Reality Competions (American Idol, Survivor, Big
Brother, etc), The Bachelor/Bachelorette, Grey's Anatomy, Big Bang
Theory, Franklin & Bash, Jersey Shore (yeah, I know ...),
SportsCenter, Saved By the Bell, Boy Meets World, Disney
Music - Country, Top 20, and anything you'd hear on Radio Disney
(aka Teenie Bopper). I'm not afraid to admit it, I've got Bieber
Food - I love pretty much all food but my favorite is Italian. Not
a big fan of raw vegetables. I love to cook, I love to eat ... not
really much for the doing dishes part though!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. My Family
3. Mickey Mouse
4. A roof over my head.
5. A reliable automobile.
6. Hope (The kind that makes you dream, not the kind who plays
goalie. Bonus points if you know the reference!)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Another question I get to update! Now that I have secured a new,
more positive job, I don't think about job searching very much at
all. I do still enjoy pondering my life and the mysteries of the
universe though. Here's a few things that keep the wheels
- Finding a girl who I can love, receive love from, and start a
- Winning the lottery so I don't have to worry about money.
- Figuring out when will be the right time to get my MBA.
- Sports (if you're bored, check out my sports blog:
- Becoming the Heavyweight Champion of the World (just kidding ...
or am I ...)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I'm not a party animal, so my Friday nights tend to be on the
low-key side compared to a lot of people my age. Usually you'll
find me hanging out at home enjoying fun food and a movie but every
now and then I get wild with something like mini golf or cosmic
I will say that when I worked at Disney, it was not uncommon to
find me at the Magic Kingdom watching Wishes on a Friday night ...
those were the days!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm usually an open book but only if you ask. I try not to
volunteer information that's private or embarassing unless you're
actually interested in the answer!
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you've made it this far down the page, I must have said
something that intrigues you! Or you're just busy having a chuckle,
which is cool too.
Shoot me a message if anything above made you smile and you're
looking for a nice Jewish boy who you might be compatible with :-)
