Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Houston born, TN grown; then north of the Mason Dixon line ever
since college at Ohio U (*not Ohio St.). Other than the
aforementioned, have lived a long stint in Chicago, and shorter
stints in Buffalo and Pittsburgh. College football at 9am and
primetime games ~4-5pm still kinda tweaks me out.
I have no expectations or necessary outcomes from this. If I could
meet someone fun, lighthearted, witty to experience the area with,
that'd be aces with me.
Me: Witty/sarcastic; like to have witty banter with others. Real,
honest/straightforward, blunt. Pretty smart. Love sports, play
sports. Fun-loving. Love concerts. Appreciate randomness &
spontaneity. Love travel, but I'm not gonna list it all or brag
about it on this profile. Love beer...and whiskey. Play guitar, but
been too undisciplined with my schedule lately. Grr.
Let's be real, this online thing masquerades as a method to find
"perfect matches" based on a "dating CV" of sorts, like a job app.
If this is your take, if you look at the profile as such and expect
and assess first dates for instant levels of "match," whereby if
it's not a magical Cinderella date, then it's a quick no-go, you
probably shouldn't message me. Just saying, that's not reality, so
I don't want to waste my time, and I'll spare you yours. It's a
mutual favor. Anyway, I've noticed this whole "dating resume"
perception messes with people's expectations. Though it shouldn't,
since most people should know the above isn't
really the case, and it comes down to meeting up, seeing how things
go, and taking it a day at a time. Duh! So, the rest of this
profile may be first meet-up material, so feel free to read on,
skip to the bottom, or just drop me a line with/without a number
and maybe we can plan to meet up.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Was working at the privilege of serving those whose health is
compromised...sometimes with a scalpel. Now reclaiming my life.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
...thinking about random stuff...like maybe how I wish I were in
the Namib desert when I'm watching some actual intelligent TV on
NatGeoHD, and/or where I want to go. Getting too into a sports game
whilst watching on TV. Kissing, so I'm told. Witty banter.
Spontaneity. Having a high batting avg. in 12" softball (maybe I'll
get in a league sometime this decade) . Trying new beers.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Please refer to my bookshelf.
Flicks: Most 80's flicks are terribly amazing!; Blues Brothers;
Animal House; Dumb & Dumber; History of the World Part 1, or
really most anything Mel Brooks (Spaceballs, etc); Jaws; Star Wars;
Indiana Jones; Top Gun; Life of Brian; Airplane, etc. This list is
TV: Mostly crap nowadays. Largely sports. South Park. Seinfeld is
the best sitcom in history. Entourage was badass. The educational
channels. Classics: Wonder Years, Family Ties, some of the real
oldies, SNL up until ~early 2000's, and ALF to name a few.
Tunes: I have some of most all major genres in my 200+ album
collection. However, no country or super emo stuff. I
don't consider Jack Johnson emo. No pansy rock (thanks for
starting that fad Third Eye Blind and Matchbox 20). No boy
band, new pop, or 'Call Me Maybe'-type stuff.
Grub: everything not named asparagus or brussel sprouts.
Special mention for: Southern cooking, good ketchup-based (ie, TN
style) BBQ, sweet tea (real sweet tea). Beer, whiskey, beer.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Most of my interests are outlined in other areas of this thing.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Why my profile is so long if I'm a pretty simple dude. (smh) I
Places I'd like to go and things I'd like to do if given the
chance. Sports. College football Saturday. Food. Women (c'mon,
y'all get some props! You know we'd be lying if we said we didn't).
Going back to S. Africa, but instead of Great White cage diving in
Mossel Bay with ~15ft juveniles, going to Gansbaai to get in with
the larger adults! Concerts. Food. Beer. What's next?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
...varies. I try not to get mired in having a typical anything.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
For me to know and you to find out.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
-You're not into playing games. I said I was real &
straightforward, right? Ha. Or don't have the aforementioned silly
expectations from this site/dating method.
-The following played fads are not a routine part of your
wardrobe/worn for the sake of "hipness" points:
~larger-than-face Jackie O sunglasses, especially worn indoors,
underground/subway, at night, or when it's cloudy
~Toms (I realize this excludes 35% of women in SF)
~conspicuously and needlessly thick, loud, or "funky" glasses,
especially those that don't actually have Rx lenses in them
~black tights/leggings every day including on non-workout days
(Damn, this excludes 70%). Now I'm down to -5% of SF, though with
back-of-the-napkin calculation factoring cross-over wearers of
multiple of above, this leaves maybe 10-20% of SF..."So, you're
telling me there's a chance!"
NB: list subject to change.
-You are not a huge Ohio St. fan.
NB: I am pretty independent and secure in myself, as well as
sometimes having to work a lot, so if you are the
co-dependent type, & want a 5 night/wk stay-in movie/reality TV
cuddler, I'm probably not your man. I'm more into independent women
who feel secure in their own as well. Just being honest. Just
We'd probably mesh & you should message me if you fancy
-funny/good sense of humor/witty
-enjoy sports to some extent
-spontaneous, or amenable to it
Randomness I thought I'd add in for shits and giggles:
You "had me at hello" if one or more of the below:
-you are brunette with long hair and blue, hazel, or green eyes;
honorable mention to longish hair in general, which is solid.
-you have a British or S. African accent; honorable mention to
European accented English.
-or a genteel Southern accent; honorable mention to New York and
Boston accents, which are solid, as is Canadian (I mean, i wouldn't
say I have Maple Fever, but there's something cute about girls
saying hoose and aboot).
Be talking to ya!
