Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Openly concerned about my fellow man. Happy in most accounts of the
word. Seriously, absolutely not serious. Empathetic to a fault.
Faulty enough to illicit empathy. Very cognizant of my spelling and
grammar, but I did just double check my spelling of cognizant.
Atheist and relieved about it. Opinionated in subjects I'm familiar
with and objective with those that I am not. Respect kindness.
Really enjoy cooking. Really like to eat food I haven't cooked. My
eyes are actually hazel, but, to those of you who are not nose to
nose with me, you will not be sure of this. Sarcastic. Fond of
intelligent and crude humor alike. Appreciative of neat places I've
been and looking forward to traveling more and more.
I have a penchant for wandering off to another country for weeks or
months at a time. Most recently backpacked through Europe for about
2 months. Have my eye on South America.
Recently took up a ridiculous interest in SCUBA diving. I'll be in
Croatia and that area of the world and plan on diving as much as
possible while out there. I'm new to this, so, if you dive and have
tips, tricks, and "don't do this or you'll die" advice, lay it on
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I have the luxury of being my own boss(!), discovering new and
exciting ways explore the world, and trying to be more adventurous
than your last date. Always working towards some spectacular life
that will be the envy of all the kids who bullied me in middle
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I have my fingers in a lot things. Which is not to say I'd don't
find room for new experiences. My friends and family usually turn
to me to fix their cars and computers, pose intellectual
conversation, do their taxes (what the hell), watch their kids, go
on adventures. Jack of all trades here, I suppose. Negotiation and
salesmanship are two of my strong suits. I'll talk the pants off a
car salesman and sell them to a pants-salesman. Yeah. I'm a decent
cook, for sure.
Kindness and concern for others. Seriously. I have always been an
advocate for the underdog, the oddity, the loner, the weird guy or
gal in the corner. Most are misunderstood. Some are genuinely
oblivious. Others have social or psychological disorders which
impact their ability to acclimate to what ever standards are
"proper" for interaction in society. Any way one looks at it, the
general acceptance to toss these people to the side of courtesies,
consideration, or kindness irks me to my core. For that, I do my
best to just be nice. I'm not perfect, but hell, I try.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm a talker. I'll introduce myself to people if I'm somewhere
unfamiliar and go from there. Or, maybe, if I am somewhere familiar
I will reintroduce myself in some spectacular (to me?) way.
Bill Nye the Science Guy said "Every person you will ever meet
knows something you don't." I believe that, no matter if it is
minuscule or mundane, or life changing in nature, each person can
attribute something to your life not previously known. Interesting
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Authors.. Isaac Asimov, Brent Weeks, Ray Bradbury, Dave Eggers etc,
etc, etc! My father and I opened a used bookstore once in
Massachusetts. Infer what you'd like from that statement. I like to
Some books include: Kite Runner, Heartbreaking Work of Staggering
Genius, The Things They Carried, (currently) A Song of Ice and Fire
serious (Game of thrones!)... on and on.
I read quite a bit. I couldn't survive without a decent book
throughout the week. Big fan of fiction across most genres (except
Vampire anything..who comes up with this stuff?)
I don't watch much TV. But, I will watch HIMYM, GoT sometimes. And
Archer is good for a laugh.
Movies range all over the place. Love a good laugh.
Comics. The Sunday newspaper kind. Calvin and Hobbes pretty much
set many, many life lessons for me. I'm lucky to have been given
the books when I was young.
I will eat all the food. All of it.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How all these people with GoPros always take better damn pictures
than me. I want to look exciting and cool too, damn it.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Why does Friday have to be more important than my Tuesday? You
really should ask what I do on Tuesdays.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I do some moderation on this site from time to time. In other
words, I read the messages and see the pictures (shudder)
that get reported.
Some of you are sick, strange people. :)
I ride a motorcycle and, sometimes, find this to be more
enlightening than interaction with people.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You've ever considered that your own opinion could be just as
flawed as another's.
Or you'd like to teach me how to play the piano in exchange for my
company. That's a deal if I've ever seen one.
