Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Making a long story short, I spent the latter part of my teens and
twenties in the military before finally getting out and going back
to school. I graduated with a degree in computer science and
relocated to Charlotte to start a new job as a web developer.
I would say I'm an intelligent guy, and along the same lines, I'm
very rational and analytical. I definitely enjoy the occasional
friendly debate or deep conversation. Who can't find something to
discuss with the state of politics and the economy these days? We
don't have to agree; in fact, that often makes it better.
I have, within the last 2 years, really gotten into exercising. I
couldn't tell anyone why it took me so long to enjoy it, although
my theories have a lot to do with angry men in uniforms yelling at
me while I worked out. I still occasionally have angry men yelling,
but they're usually accompanied by music nowadays. I love to run,
lift weights, even swim on occasion. If you're a gym rat or just a
fitness enthusiast, I love comparing routines and talking about the
science behind exercise and diet.
I play pool, throw darts, kill at paintball, ride my motorcycle,
Netflix binge, go camping, read books, play disc golf, watch
football, and the list goes on. My problem is usually finding the
time to do everything. I bounce back and forth between bouts of
activity and idle pleasures.
Being upfront, I'm in an open relationship. We are both okay with
meeting, dating, befriending, and even loving other people. If
you're comfortable with that, let's chat. Continuing the candid
streak, being a guy on an online dating site, I've grown tired of
the very one-sided interactions. If you message me first, it's
definitely a point in your favor.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm starting a new career. It's been a little scary scrapping
everything I knew and abandoning stability for what I really wanted
to do, but so far, it's turning out fairly well.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I am the tech support for my family and friends. It doesn't matter
if I've never owned or even heard of the product in question, I'm
going to be consulted anyway.
The first things people usually notice about me

I look like Jesus right now, so I've been told... repeatedly.
Apparently all it takes is a white guy with long hair and a closely
In fact, at a recent hotel stay, one of the staff did a quick
double-take and then proceeded to bow in front of me. If that
weren't enough, my coworkers wanted me to pose in the pool standing
on a submerged lounger... You get the idea.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Talk about a broad essay category...
Let's see, my taste in books ranges across multiple genres. I
largely prefer sci-fi and fantasy for my fiction reading, but I
pick up a lot of social commentary and political non-fiction books
as well. I tend to devour books at a fairly quick rate. So here's a
short list of some I've read recently:
Song of Ice and Fire Series by George R. R. Martin
Capitol Punishment the Autobiography of Jack Abramoff
Reefer Madness by Eric Schlosser
Devious by Lisa Jackson
Super Freakonomics by Stephen Levitt and Steven Dubner
As for movies, I like anything with a good twist, and the nerd in
me digs ALL of the comic book movies that have been coming out
lately. I'm not a huge fan of romantic comedies, but I don't know
many guys that are really. I'll gladly sit and watch them if it
means I get a good cuddle in though.
Moving on to music, the only types I really don't care too much for
are rap and country music. There are exceptions within those two,
but they're pretty few and far between. At this point in my life, I
tend to enjoy Punk, Punk/Pop, and Alternative the most simply
because I like having something that can either be upbeat or
angst-filled depending on the day.
Lastly, I am definitely a foodie. While simple fare will do for an
evening, a life without sushi, wine, seafood, or rare game is a sad
one indeed. One of my many life goals is to try every new meat dish
that I come across. I'm very much a carnivore, but I'm also not
afraid of a little tofu and veggies.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) The internet (I'd have no job)
2) My smartphone (I'm a well-behaved addict, I swear)
3) Music (A change in mood is only a track away)
4) Food (Did I mention I like to try new things?)
5) Friends (Life is so much richer when shared)
6) Family (I wouldn't be where I am today without them)
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?
Hanging out with my small but growing circle of friends here in
Charlotte, exercising in my home gym, or curled up with a book.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'll tell you just about anything if you ask.
But for here, I cry every time when Goose dies in Top Gun.

You made it this far down the page and hadn't navigated away
already. After all, why would you read the whole thing if you
didn't want to at least strike up a conversation?
Although, if that isn't enough, here's a quick guide. If you like
to talk, converse, discuss, or debate, I'm always up for it. If you
like sushi, anime, running, video games, sport bikes, computers,
long hair on guys, books, or science in general, send me a
If you're the type of person that can wake up one weekend morning,
realize that there's plenty of time left to go camping, take a road
trip to a nearby city, go attempt any new recreational activity,
but would be just as happy staying home and watching a movie as
long as it wasn't EVERY weekend, message me.
