Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My name is Brendan and I’m a smart, funny, romantic and geeky guy
looking for people to share interests with and to enjoy the life
with... I’m not looking for games; I want the real deal.
Before going any farther I will mention that I'm polyamorous. (Yes,
I know mixing Greek and Latin root words is wrong but I didn't make
up the word.) I am in relationships and have time and energy for
more. If you are looking for a romantic relationship and that's a
problem thanks for looking but we aren't going to work out. If that
isn't a problem or you just want some new friends read on and I
hope to get to know you.
Friendship is one of the most important aspects in any
relationship, what I can say about myself is that I am a true
friend first. I like to share interests and be exposed to new
things. I am a great listener and I care; when I ask you how your
day was, I genuinely want to know. I am a born romantic and I am
very affectionate; I love to snuggle.
I’m a social guy. I'm *very* extroverted. I feel best surrounded by
750 of my close friends as we listen to live music, dance, drink
and talk together. I like hanging out with people, I like movies
and TV shows, I like to hike and travel, I’m into beer tasting, I
love music and I am always looking for a good concert.
Now for the geeky part: I’m a Software Engineer.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Updated May 2013:
Yep, still travelling and doing the music thing. So far in 2013
I've been back to the Netherlands for Marillion Weekend and to
Gettysburg for the Rites of Spring. I don't have any more trips
extended trips planned this year but am going to focus on some
camping and hiking in the Puget Sound area. I have a new backpack
and tent and I'm itching to give them a try.
Updated August 2012:
Still travelling and exploring the world. Preparing for another
jaunt to the Netherlands for a music festival. I successfully
completed an overnight backpacking trip and am very stoked to be
able do do something I love again. For a long time I thought
injuries from my time in the Marine Corps was going to prevent me
from backpacking again. Now I know that's not true and am already
planning the next trek.
I achieved one of my life goals with a recent trip to the
Netherlands. If I had the travel bug before I've got a full on five
alarm fever to travel now. This was just the beginning.
Recently I returned from Gettysburg where I attended the Rites of Spring
festival. Later in June 2012 I'll be flying down to Los Angeles to
attend two Marillion
concerts and one in San
Francisco. Farther out on the horizon I'll be headed back to the
Netherlands to attend the IO Pages festival and in 2013 there will
be another trip to the Netherlands for the Marillion
Along with the travel I'm working to grow a community of like
minded music fans in the Seattle area to draw some of the bands
here for concerts.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making my friends laugh. I've been told more than once I should
consider a career as a comedian.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My eyes get quite a few comments, but I think it's my personality
that strikes first. I try to be outgoing and friendly to all and
will greet a stranger with a friendly "Hello!"
Who am I kidding, it's the hat. Everyone loves the hat.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I enjoy a lot of books with all kinds of subjects. My top favorite
genres are the kind of horror that creeps you out and has you
checking the shadows. For example, The Haunting of Hill House
Shirley Jackson. I also enjoy stories that involve a world of
mystery and majesty just beneath our own. Examples of this would be
As with books there are a lot of movies I enjoy, but there are two
kinds of movies I like most. The first kind are fun and
entertaining. They can be silly or just filled with action. Some
examples of these would be The Princess Bride
Zorro: The Gay Blade
The other kind are serious films that should be classified as art.
and Wings of Desire
of the second kind.
There is too much good music in the world to limit my choices to
just a few favorites. It also really depends on what's going on
around me. At a party I like to get my groove on to pop music of
the 80s. At work I'm usually listening to progressive rock
as it helps me
to focus. I love checking out local acts at live venues. My
favorite band is Kansas
. Don't mention Dust in the Wind
unless you are ready to hear a list of their better but lesser
known works. ;) I've also discovered a love for Ayreon
and his long string of
related concept albums.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Beer, friends, music, books, chocolate, sunshine.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I haven't had a typical Friday night in a while. All I can say
about Friday is it's the day after Thursday and it comes before
