Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a strange combination of stereotypes. You could say I'm a jack
of all trades, but I don't view myself that way. I'm part nerd and
part construction worker.
First and foremost I consider myself an intellectual, and I think
that's the part of my personality that shows through the most. I
sometimes tend to go on short rants on the mechanics of things. I
like learning how things work. I am a physicist and an engineer
after all! I'm a very analytical and rational person. I am a news
junkie. A conversation with me usually includes lots of clever
I've worked in the construction industry since I was 19 (worked
summers to get through college), and I really value the experience
of being able to build things and being able to see the way
professionals construct things. I'm now an engineer for the same
company I worked for while I was in college.
I also really like working on cars, and well, anything with an
engine. I've rebuilt a few car engines, and done a lot of work on
motorcycles and boats as well. So yeah, I'm one of those "car
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm basically an Electrical Engineer, but I do more project
management than engineering. I've been with my company a long time,
and they've been really good to me, just trying to keep climbing
the corporate ladder at this point.
I travel A LOT for work right now, but fairly soon (in about a
year) I should move to a different position where I don't have to
travel as much.
I do a lot of side projects and hobbies. My bedroom is halfway
taken up by electronic parts and tools, and my garage usually has a
disassembled engine and/or car in it.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Fixing things, building things, math, science, electronics.
I'm an easy person to get along with. I'm not the life of the party
type, but I'm the guy that everyone usually gets along with.
I am good at learning and doing new things. I am not afraid to jump
headfirst into an ambitious project - that's the way you
I'm a pretty good mechanic, I can do pretty much anything to a car,
including engine and transmission work.
Recently I've gotten into Arduino projects. They're a lot of fun to
play with :-).
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't really know. I think most people severely underestimate how
nerdy I am. I'm not nerdy in the comic books and Dr. Who way, but a
science and technology nerd through and through.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I only read boring non-fiction books about religion, evolution,
astrophysics, quantum physics, and other similar subjects.
I'm not really into fiction, and a lot of people find that very
strange about me. I'm not heartless, or lacking of imagination or
anything, but reading fictional stories is just not very
interesting to me. I very much enjoy reading true stories,
especially fascinating ones. I'm also a news junkie. I like to say
that I like living in the real world instead of a fantasy world.
I'd rather do an adventure than read about one. I don't mean that
in a condescending way, its just my opinion for myself.
I'm not very picky with music. I'll listen to most of it besides
country and most rap. Lately I've gotten into german rock/techno
and sometimes dubstep, but typically I like mostly rock music and
some occasional pop (don't hate). I like upbeat music that makes me
happy and motivated.
I don't watch a lot of TV, and usually I watch it on my computer. I
do like to watch Colbert, Daily Show, Top Gear (UK version),
Mythbusters, and South Park. And almost any
science/history/documentary show. I don't watch mainstream news
except to make fun of it. I generally don't care for sitcoms and
I'm the opposite of a picky eater. There are some foods I don't
care for, but I'll eat almost anything. My favorite is tex-mex and
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Internal combustion engines
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 prefer nerdy house parties to bars, but I'm flexible.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Sometimes I rock out to terrible pop music.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You don't mind getting your hands dirty from time to time, high
maintenance girls need not apply.
If you drive a stick shift, motorcycle, or generally any vehicle
that I find particularly interesting, then I will be immediately
interested in you.
Also you MUST be an intellectual. I don't connect well to people
who can't hold an intelligent conversation.
