Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My name is Derek and I'm a total sweetheart. Some girls actually
take advantage of this fact. I don't believe in cheating and never
have. I have a zero tolerance policy because its been done to me
once before. Music is definitely my thing. I currently play music
in a band, but we're not famous or anything. My instrument is
harmonica and I also sing some of the songs. Music would definitely
be my biggest passion, but I love sports of all kinds. Ice Hockey,
Football, Baseball, Basketball, its all good. I currently have 72
credits done towards my degree in history, which I plan on
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Right now I play music weekly at various places around the Philly
and Trenton areas, but I plan on going back to school in the fall.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Playing harmonica and writing songs. My lyrics and poetry are
usually pretty good. I'm also a decent ice hockey player, though I
haven't played in any leagues for a few years. Right now music has
taken over my leisure time, but I still have plenty for other
people and friends.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My goofy personality. Haha, I'm generally laughing at things and
easily amused. I'm a hopeless romantic in some regards. Cheesy
lines get me, and I'm not afraid to verbally express my emotions.
Tolerance is my policy, as I don't care about race, religion, and
social standing. Also, I have a great smile when someone makes me
happy or laugh.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
My favorite book at the moment it When The Game Was Ours. Its about
the wars between Larry Bird and Magic Johnson. Generally, I love
reading philosophy too, because it opens your mind up to
understanding how and why people act certain ways. My favorite
movie is probably Goodfellas or The Godfather, but Chinatown is
right in there with them. I love Led Zeppelin and classic rock
stuff, but my musical tastes are varied. I'll eat almost anything
but soy or tofu products. Sorry, but I'm not eating things that are
used as supplements for real food. I should make it clear I have
nothing against vegans, but their food is not for me personally.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My harmonicas, Sports, Women, My Family, My Friends, and My Pets.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Things I can do better now. The past is never coming back, but I
can be a better man for the future.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Out at the bar with friends, playing music, or enjoying a good
movie. Mind you I'm not a big drinker, I just like seeing people.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I find myself singing out loud when I'm working on new material.
I'm never nervous in front of people when we play live, but its
different when I'm alone. I imagine I sound weird singing to
myself. Also, I pretend I'm the president sometimes and imagine
what I would say to the American people in tense situations. I've
always had a dream of becoming the president and helping people's
lives when I was little. Haha, but I'm not crazy. Just willing to
imagine what it would be like and understand how difficult a job it
is in real life.
