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.
I'm a pretty typical nerdy engineer. I like learning how things
work and building interesting things. I'm not a typical nerd in the
media I consume. I've never watched Dr Who or Game of Thrones, or
played Pokemon, and I don't intend on changing that.
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
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.
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 6
years and they have been good to me so far.
I travel a lot for work right now, but I'm traveling less and less
in the near future as I work my way up the corporate ladder.
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
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 as far as physical features go. If
someone comes to my house they'll first notice the huge aquarium in
the front room. If I'm out and about, people often comment on how
loud and obnoxious my car is.
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.
I'm about 20lbs overweight at the moment. Traveling around the
country makes staying in shape hard, but I'm renewing my efforts
this summer to slim down to my normal weight.

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.
I'm an Atheist, so if you're religious, you probably won't get
along with me very well.
