Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a pretty typical nerdy engineer. I like learning how things
work and building interesting things. I've worked in the
construction industry in some facet since I was 19 (worked summers
to get through college), and I really value the experience and
practical knowledge of using tools and building things.
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
guys". I never anticipate owning less than 4
cars/trucks/motorcycles/boats, so you'll have to put up with that.
I have a need for speed.
My main hobby is "building stuff". And sometimes fixing stuff. Or
building something and then fixing it. Or trying to fix something
and rebuilding it.
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 at my company for about 7
years and they have been good to me so far.
I'm probably moving from Dallas to Kansas City, KS sometime in the
next year or 2 to move up to a new position at my company's
corporate headquarters in Lenexa, KS.
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 currently house shopping for a fixer-upper than I can fix up
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
Recently I've gotten into Arduino and other microcontroller
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I honestly don't really know.
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 and history
I'm not very picky with music. I'll listen to most of it, but don't
really care for most country or rap music.
I don't watch a lot of TV, and usually I watch it on my computer. I
sometimes watch Mythbusters, The Daily Show, Southpark, and similar
type shows, but I don't watch them that often.
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.
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 are into things that go fast that's a big plus. You should
be at least somewhat interested in
electronics/mechanics/physics/science, because that's the type of
stuff I like to talk about often. Otherwise you'll roll your eyes
in boredom often while hanging out with me.
I'm an Atheist and politically progressive, so if you're religious
or a tea party republican, you probably won't get along with me
