Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
From the Chicago area, but grew up in the rural Alabama
Graduated from UAHuntsville with a double major in Accounting and
Work for a local defense contractor, doing project control/business
analysis in the mission support group.
I have a daughter. She's a sweet little girl. I see her all the
time. We recently picked up stargazing with her new telescope as a
hobby to do together.
I think of myself as a modern day Renaissance man. I am a jack of
all trades and a master of none.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working on my career and raising my daughter.
Hopefully working on buying a house soon.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Having input in a conversation. I am packed full of useless
I may not be good at it, but some of the activities/interests I
skiing, spelunking, hiking, biking, cars, computers, video games,
pool, bowling, watching hockey/football, gardening, and others I'm
sure I'll add later.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My invisible handlebar mustache. Or my straightforward attitude. I
don't play mind games. Most sane people come to realize life is
just better that way.

There's a few more. I just dont like "reality" shows like Jersey
I love music. I like classical, classic rock, hard rock, and mostly
. Most people
look at me weird when they find that out. It is definitely an
acquired taste. Just don't knock it 'til you try it. I also try to
go to concerts whenever possible. That is a hobby of mine.
I can be a picky eater. I try to eat somewhat healthy, although it
sure takes a lot of willpower.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
3. ability to obtain knowledge
5. stories: fiction or non fiction. no matter whether it comes in
the form of a book, movie, video game, or verbal; they expand the
6. I have myriads of interests. some may be considered hobbies.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The world around me. I like to know what makes it and the objects
on it work. I always have a thirst for knowledge. ND Tyson is my
idol. If you know who that is, bonus points for you. He makes me
wonder if I chose the wrong career. Bill Nye is a close second.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either out with friends, sometimes at the pool hall, at a Havoc
hockey game, going to car meets, or at home playing xbox/watching a
movie. Sometimes my daughter comes over early for the weekend.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I curiously look up high percentage matches from any distance,
wondering if I'm in the wrong place. I probably wont message any of
them, because that most likely wont work out.
This is pretty damn funny.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I messaged you first. It's the least you should do when I acutally
put some thought into my messages. If your profile was basically
empty, don't expect my initial message to be very long. I'm finding
that I'm very picky and don't message very often. If I messaged
you, it was for a good reason.
My criteria is if you're honest, intellectual, and easy going; and
can say more than "hi" when sending me a message
This shouldn't offend you:
My daughter is very important to me. She is a smart little girl and
challenges me all the time. You have to at least be able to get
along with her when the time comes to meet her, which is way down
I love to travel, money willing, and I need a somewhat spontaneous
girl to counter my tendency to be lazy and stay in. We can just
take off and travel for the weekend.
Now I don't think most of these things are too unreasonable to
find. If you think you fit what I'm looking for, feel free to send
me a message.
Also, if you're into metal (guy or girl), message me. I have a FB
group that posts new stuff and upcoming concerts.
