My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
So a little about me:

I'm a single divorced guy. It's been quite some time since my divorce and it was amicable. So I've had plenty of time for introspection on where I want to go. It's important to some people, so I will get that out and out of the way. Not separated, divorced. No kids, but I'm not opposed to having some. Just wasn't in the cards

I have a great job in a career I very much enjoy. I enjoy cooking for myself and friends on a weekly basis. I like my downtime, but I'm a little introverted that way.

I like my sports: downhill mountain biking, snowboarding, motorcycle riding. Not much into the team sports, but ultimate does look fun. Swimming and scuba are phenomenal, and I don't do them enough. Oddly never got into surfing.

I value my friends, as they are a great group of people. They have helped me through many things, including a minivan proving to my motorcycle that it is bigger. My ankle is recovering, and I look forward my next bike and a few more if not always accident free.

Sure I could be succinct, but what fun would it be to say: single, healthy, educated, loyal. Examples are worth more to how you read into what I write.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Paying my bills each month? How? In a way that apparently coincides with my education.

All that and attempting not to hurt myself with more reading and writing, while becoming more learned in mountain biking. Or some combination of subject, object, and verb of the previous statement, hehe. Reading aloud to a cat isn't as rewarding as I thought it would be... would probably be more fun to read to someone else.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Not being a judgemental person and recognizing that everyone has their own interpretation of how the world would be a better place.

I would like to say philosophy, but actually I'm better at cooking. Though I do try to read as much as I can.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't really know, but I'd assume that it is that I don't like interrupting people when they speak.

Food: I don't think there is a food I haven't tried and liked to some degree or more. And I usually have tried to recreate it to better understand the devotion/love needed for some of those dishes. Plus, it's really really fun to make food that entertains me in making it as much as eating it.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Access to information (smart phone, computer, etc. And the fact it makes the world a better place if you're optimistic about it)
My health (getting outside on one of my toys or swimming)
My friends (to keep me mostly sane and to practice my cooking on)
Goals (the ideas and thoughts and purposes)
Food (cause I'd like to be happy with what I put in my body and I like cooking and eating)
Downtime

That and a first aid kit, in case I start bleeding after an uncontrolled landing on my mountain bike... apparently I think I can fly without wings.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How the phrase if you never start, you'll never finish applies to so many facets of my life, in my career, and in my emotional well being.

I started on building my orrery, and am now working on the third version. It will include elements such as decaying orbits, and a better understanding of gravity between different objects of varying size. It's all on my computer so it is intangible to a degree.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have high hopes of teaching my cat to sing "This Place Is A prison" by The Postal Service. And I'd swear he is catching onto it and thwarting my attempts
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Message me if I have thoroughly offended your sensibilities with my self proclaimed liberal and progressive attitude towards treating other people as people, instead of as objects. Oh wait, I mean the opposite of that.

And maybe if you get a a small kick out of the Oxford comma, apostrophes, and multiple meanings in seemingly unambiguous sentences.
