Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a young lawyer and new to Houston. Looking to meet some
I'm not necessarily looking for anything too serious, but if I meet
the right young lady, I would certainly be very happy. I'm all over
the place in terms of interests. I very much enjoy the outdoors,
whether it's hiking and camping or competing in some outdoor
basketball. I also really like to box (one on one, not a punching
bag - that's not nearly as exciting), and really pushing my body to
the limit. At the same time I am also very comfortable with my
indoor activities. One week I could be canoeing in the Boundary
Waters and sleeping in tents, and the next I am putting on my suit
and tie (always the suit, sometimes the tie) to spend my evenings
in a downtown cigar bar (or something less pretentious).
I do not have an ideal mate. In the past I have dated people with
all sorts of interests - some prefer to trek through the woods, and
would not be caught dead in some club, while others loved to put on
a nice dress and party the night away, yet others still would want
to sit on the couch and watch a movie. I like all those activities.
As long as you are intelligent, and have something to say, I'm
happy to spend time with you. Just like in "Yes Man" I would gladly
do just about any new activity.
I do prefer at least a little independence to go and do my own
thing every once in a while, however.
I am also a big fan of cars and driving (German engineering).
That's one thing I think I am pretty good at, so if you're a
driver... we should definitely talk.
I hope to fit the definition of a polymath later in life, as I do
not want to pursue one area of study - I really try to be a
modern-day Renaissance man.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I just moved to Houston from St. Louis - so mostly sitting right in
front of the AC during the daylight hours...
I've been attempting to better myself in any way I can. I really
like trying new things, and attempt to do something different every
Just went snowboarding for the first time in Colorado. It was quite
amazing (the view more so than my poor snowboarding, that just
mainly hurt). Being at the top of the mountain and seeing for miles
away really takes your breath away, and makes getting back down in
an uncontrollable descent which one is clearly not ready for all
the more worthwhile (I got pretty good at the end though - fun
fact; moguls and snowboards do not mix well).
Also decided to join a boxing gym on a whim - a great decision. I'd
highly recommend it for anyone looking for a fun and easy way to
stay or get in shape!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I'll read just about anything, but fiction with a philosophical or
political narrative is probably my favorite. Frank Herbert's Dune
series is at the top of my list. The Game of Thrones and subsequent
books are pretty great.
Same thing with movies... Big fan of Equilibrium, Dark City and
Vanilla Sky. Inception was amazing - saw it three times. That thing
at the end fell - no other way.
In terms of music, I like a lot of classic, alternative, and modern
rock. Lately been getting into some hip hop and rap (as long as it
has some kind of message - nothing mindless). Well that's what I
listen to when I turn on the radio in my car.
The blues are probably my favorite. Few, if any can play them
better than Gary Moore. The best blues guitarist I've ever
I am a fan of just about any type of food, but probably Indian and
Chinese are among my favorites.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Car, family, computer, basketball, hockey, grandma's Napoleon
Torte... But really, what could I "never" do without? Water and
food. If need be, I think it's possible to go without material
possessions for a bit.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
There are few typical Friday nights - I'm not a fan of doing
same thing over and over, so I'm out there enjoying the world.
