Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a single guy looking for a long-term relationship (i.e.
marriage). I have a good sense of humor and take things as the
come. That doesn't mean I always like it, but I have learned to
hope for the best and plan for the worst. I like people, but prefer
them in small groups, not large ones. My two favorite topics are
religion and politics and I have strong views in both areas. I love
to think and discuss things and I am a bit cynical on the surface,
but a hopeless romantic at heart.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I teach network security (computers) at a local technical
university and I play golf. I enjoy a lot of activities, but I
don't like doing them alone, so I don't.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Teaching, thinking, golf (okay, not really that good, but I love it
and try hard). I'm reasonably good at a lot of things.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have no idea, but it's probably not something I'd like them to
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I read almost anything that has a good story or mystery about it.
I've read a lot of Michener and used to read Clancy. I love
historical and political stuff too (big surprise there). My
favorite movie is probably Tombstone, but I like all types
including (I hate to admit this) romantic comedies. I like
classical music as well as rock, and country. When it comes to food
I like all kinds, but usually prefer meat and potatoes.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Other than things essential for living (not dying), I doubt there
are any other essentials. There are many things I would rather not
do without, but I can probably survive without them. In everyday
life it would probably come down to my computer and my car.
Everything else is probably negotiable. In reality, I probably
can't answer this until you start taking things away. That's
probably when I would begin to realize what I'd really rather not
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I like to look for essential truth. I know that sounds deep, boring
and tedious, but it's also important. The things you base your life
on need to be true or else you'll be building your life on
something that isn't important or true. Any belief will work during
good times, but if you're not basing your life on truth then it
will all fall apart when things go wrong. On the lighter side, I
like to analyze what people say (especially politicians) and figure
out who they're talking to and what they really mean.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I'd love to go out (if you're interested let me know), but I'm
usually recovering from golf and watching some rather boring TV.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
In writing? Not much. If you have any questions feel free to ask. I
can't promise that I'll answer them all, but I won't lie to you
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I'm looking for someone to spend the rest of my life with. I don't
expect you to know that from reading this, but I would like to meet
people who are generally headed in the same direction. If you like
good conversation and a gentleman who will respect you then let me
know. I really am a fun guy (the serious stuff not withstanding)
and I like to enjoy good company.
