Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Well, I'm intelligent, hard working, genuine, and honest to a
fault. I'm caring and skilled with understanding my emotions. I'm
optimistic, active, and can fix just about anything. Contrary to
this list I'm also humble, but I am quite accomplished and needed
to brag a bit in order to catch your eye.
I've heard that people somehow find me intimidating and it's
completely a foreign concept to me. I'm not the most confident man
out there and frequently find myself afraid to talk to a cute girl
I haven't met before. Sure, I've done a lot in my life and I strive

I've been getting some impressive shots lately and I'm quite happy
with my progress.

and family will remember me as awesome.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm excellent at repairing things and I really enjoy the
Good friends have told me that I give incredible massages.
I've recently discovered that around "normal" people I kick ass at

The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've been told that I have an ass like a Clydesdale. I think this
is a good thing. My rear end keeps getting compliments.
People quickly learn that I'm very kind hearted. I'm quick to hold
doors for others and I do my best to be gentlemanly. I'm usually
smiling and engaging a conversation.

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
