Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a cool, smart, and funny guy.
Also, to be perfectly honest, I have to admit I was born and raised
in New Jersey. South Jersey, not the icky North.
Growing up, I was an athlete and played basketball, football, and
baseball. Baseball lasted me all the way through college until I
tore up my arm my junior year. While this somewhat curtails my
sporting activities, I still work out regularly. Lately, my
activity of choice has been boxing but I still don't do that as
much as I would like.
I am an artistic person. The creative process really keeps me
balanced. It's one of the few things that can make me happy no
matter what else is going on in my life. I have written several
books (never published because they are crap) because I enjoy it.
Maybe some day I can devote more time to it.
I can also be a big nerd. I think board games, video games, and
comic books are really cool.
So jock-nerd-starving artist. Pretty common combo.
I'm pretty casual in dress and demeanor, but I've been told that I
clean up well.
While I like to travel and all of my profile pictures are from
somewhere overseas, I really don't consider myself all that
I learn something new every day even if my day is nothing more than
doing laundry at home. For instance, I learned that those cartoons
where you tie a string to a quarter to get free stuff out of
machines really doesn't work.
I'm looking to meet a woman that enjoys laughing and learning new
things. I pride myself on my sense of humor and that is the number
one thing I want to share with someone. People who can laugh at
life together can weather a lot of storms.
I also like women who are smart, open minded, and ambitious but at
the same time realize that there actually is a little bit more to
life than getting the corner office.
Oh, and I was serious about that sense of humor thing. You may have
thought this whole write up was straight forward and dry and that
it must be reflective of my personality. Well, I am not dry. Trust
me, I am hilarious.
Lastly, for you shy women, just pretend we're at a bar. If you are
interested and don't want to put yourself totally out there, just
wink. I never see people actually wink at a bar, but just go with
it. If the whole winking thing is a little too meta for you, rating
me also gets my attention. Thanks, dating site!
And for the ADD ladies out there, here is the too long did not read

Here are things that you need to know about me. Read: you need to
at least tolerate these things.
- I watch sports
- I play video games
- I do dorky things (I have played things like D and D before and
may do so again.)
While none of these things dominate my life, they are things women
might have issue with. Be warned: I really am a great guy, but I am
still a guy.
I have also been told that I am a very good but acquired taste. Not
sure that is a compliment.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Sort of in career limbo. I'm an attorney, but am currently only
practicing part time, mostly doing contract work. It's paying the
bills until I write my bestseller or at least write enough to
support myself. It's a slow but fun process that I am trying to
At this point, I will probably die destitute. Either that or in
some strange situation ripped from a Kafka story.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Reading, writing, and arithmetic. Seriously, I can add really well
in my head. I am also a good athlete. I'm also really good at being
goofy and making people laugh. Actually, I'm also good at
alienating and possibly offending people that don't have the same
sense of humor I do. Full disclosure from me on that point.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
The first thing people notice about me is that I am usually the
most under dressed person in the room. I also will be the first to
say something inappropriate in said room.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I like all books, but I particularly like reading history and
popular literature. I have also been known to read fantasy, science
fiction, and even a chick lit book because I wanted to see what it
was like. For you curious women, I read a Janet Evanovich book,
I have the musical taste of a 50-year-old man. I was raised
listening to basically every type of music from 1955-1980. I also
love 90's music. In fact, I think the 90's were the greatest decade
I also get into these weird moods where if a song really strikes a
chord with me, I will listen to it approximately 8 times straight
(usually captures an emotion I am trying to write with). Right now,
I seem to have an abnormal appreciation for "Dancing in the
Moonlight" by King Harvest.
I don't watch much television, but when I do, it is usually sports,
something educational, or something funny. I hate reality TV.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A spiral notebook.
A good pen.
I also have a severe peanut M&M addiction. I need help.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
what I want to be when I grow up.
why I don't write as much as I should.
why doing nothing can really make me happy sometimes.
How some women think Match percentage is super important and then
mess up what constitutes an acceptable answer.
Example: Woman answers that she likes sushi, but then dings a guy
for liking sushi. Either she wants to hog all the sushi (like a
greedy tramp!) or she thought she was marking unacceptable answers
instead of acceptable answers.
I also spend way too much time trying to understand the whole
"women having pictures taken with various fake mustaches" thing. I
really dont get it.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either out doing something casual or staying in and goofing off.
Honestly, I go out when I feel like it and am perfectly happy to
stay in. I never feel like I HAVE to go out.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I like superheroes. Also, for some reason, my Dad cannot pronounce
the word "tiger." His favorite golfer is Tagger Woods, and when I
come home from the zoo, he would ask me if I saw any taggers. It's
really embarrassing. We don't let him go out much.

"They are both equally good."
Also, if you are a gal lucky enough to be rated by me, I swear I am
