My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Where has the joy of discovery gone? I could tell you tons of things about myself, but isn't it more fun in this online dating world to talk to someone and discover what makes them tick? Nice guy that I am I'm going to allow you the joy of learning more about me. You're welcome. And (--yep I'm a grammar rebel. I start sentences with conjunctions sometimes), I feel the same way when it comes to describing who I want to find. I'm here because I'm open to meeting new people. Now clever use of your peripheral vision has probably led you to notice that there's more written below. While I don't like being an enabler, given the what I'm sure is (grossly) unbalanced ratio of men to women on here I figured I better give you at least a cliff notes version of who I am (well, really it's more like a cliff notes version of a cliff notes version).

So if I must...I currently hurt people under the guise of gainful employment in the field of Orthopedic Technology...aka casting and splinting (as in i put them on). It's always different day to day and I'm throughly happy with it . I'm a huge movie buff and have too many "favorites" to count. If you put a gun to my head I'd probably say that Shawshank Redemption is my fav of all time. Let's see...I am a meat eater. I have nothing against you vegans and vegetarians out there...just leave me to my own devices and I'll do the same with you. I also have two kids...a daughter that's 13 and a son that's 10. Don't worry...they don't live with me atm. BUT, sometimes they are a part of the package, so wrapping one's mind around that is essential!

Also relevant...yes I only have the three pics up at the moment. Yes that's really what I look like, though I hasten to add that if you looked in my eyes and didn't turn to stone then we're probably in pretty good shape. On that note, just for a moment, allow me to be serious. I'm gainfully employed but not rich. I'm somewhat ok looking but no one will confuse me for a model. I probably drink too much soda and watch too much tv (though am not a couch potato). I do enjoy tennis, softball, hiking, and a few other outdoor activities that escape me at the moment, but I'm not overly athletic.

Also of note, I live with roommates for the time being because I'm willing to sacrifice privacy to save money to be able to visit my kids more in Maryland and do more with them when they're out here. Yes I could totally afford to live on my own, but my kids are way more important. 'Why am I telling you all this?' you may be asking yourself. Well, honestly, it's for the superficial types out there. You know who you are. Don't waste any more of your time on me. You're busy skipping through profiles of decent guys in order to find a (non-existent) perfect one. After you find him, go find bigfoot. On the other hand, for those that place emphasis on substance over style, you're my kind of person. Please read on.

I guess the most important thing about me that it would be wise to know beforehand is that I'm a very laid back person. I love to laugh and find the comedy in everything. Life is just too short to sweat the small stuff I think. I'm just an all around patient and relaxed hurry up and email me already!!!!!! Yes out there reading this right out there wondering why you're standards have slipped such that my profile actually is starting to appeal to you. There's no use fighting it...
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
See above. I realize this involves a little bit of eye movement and/or a click or two of the mouse, but I'm worth the re-read. Add to that trying my best to help ensure my kids feel happy and secure in all that they do.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Figuring electronic devices out. Cooking from a recipe. Showing affection. Listening. Relating to kids. My job. Making movie references. Getting along with people. Lightening moods. Sarcastic quips. I'll keep adding to this list as more occur to me. You're welcome.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My eyes. My dimples. My go with the flow, mellow personality. My comedic timing. Wow another random list. It's your lucky day. I'll probably add to this one too.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
The Darktower series. Shawshank Redemption (as you particulary astute people will note was already stated above). Sons of Anarchy. Chris Cornell. Flank Steak with a special homemade marinade sauce.

See what I did there? I actually listed only one item for each category. It's that kind of radical, outside the box thinking that will get me in trouble someday.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. My kids.
2. My senses.
3. My family/friends.
4. Electricity.
5. Oxygen.
6. Insert your name here.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Life and how to get the most fun possible out of it. Ok Ok I also think about my kids and how to make life better for them than it's been for me. I also think about why I'm still single and how I might go about fixing that. Now accepting suggestions...
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Out and about with insert your name here.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I once ran out for gym class (third grade) without my gym shorts on. Savor the imagery...

Ok ok I still dabble in video games a bit. No I don't have a Peter Pan complex, but the kid in me refuses to let go of some things.

Errr...I've had the snip snip operation. I'm going to credit you with enough intelligence to know what this means to avoid having to spell it out in graphic detail. You're welcome.

Oh and also I...yeah right. Have to keep at least one skeleton in the closet. Helps keep things fun...
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
...if you favor substance over style.
...if you're not a serial dater.
...if for no other reason than to justify all the time you just spent reading through my profile.
...if you're willing to risk actually receiving an entertaining email or two.
...if you'd like to tell me off for being a sarcastic tool.
...if the desperation, from your slipping standards that I mentioned above, is even more palpable now then before you read my profile.
