Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Here goes . . . born in Austin although my Dad is from Houston and
Mom is from Harlem, NYC. I'm an only child, yet somehow incredibly
generous, caring, and not spoiled ;-) I was involved in sports and
a few different clubs throughout middle school and high school.
Then off to college in Atlanta to play football. After graduation,
back to Austin for Law School. I've been mostly working in the
public interest/legal aid area and on various contract jobs for law
firms. When I'm not working, I see my folks or go out with friends
or go to the gym. Decided to try this site because meeting women in
the club scene has gotten old and frustrating . . . and with my
busy schedule, I have limited time for drama and games. Even when
my schedule is clear - I don't and won't engage in drama or games.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working hard to become a better person and help those less
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Paying attention to detail, listening, caring, getting a read on
people, not judging, having an open mind, exercising.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Usually my smile because I have dimples. Another thing is I have
spent a lot of time in the gym since high school so people notice
my build. Not a huge guy, but very fit.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
My favorite music is by far Wu-Tang Clan. I like many types of
music, but prefer less commercial music such as reggae, drum &
bass, and hip hop (i.e., not rap, some rap is okay, but I need a
meaningful lyric here and there). Shows - only things I really
watch on TV are World News, Family Guy, The Daily Show, Colbert
Report, sports, and some old comedy reruns. Movies - The Good, the
Bad, and the Ugly, V for Vendetta, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.
Books - Invisible Man. Being a history major who went into law
school, I didn't think I could ever read a book simply for pleasure
again - but I think I'm finally over that and will start reading
more. I prefer non-fiction except for classics. Food - I mostly
keep it healthy with a high protein and veggies diet . . . but I do
love a deep dish pizza or a burger now and then.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Hmmm, this is tough because I feel I'm a strong person.
Mhmm . . . the essentials
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
- Wanting to meet a woman to share life with
- How we all complain so much about things that are meaningless,
irrelevant, or minor inconveniences. Please notice I wrote "we"
because I'm also guilty of this. And since I provide legal
assistance for people in poverty, I can't stand myself when I think
- I often think about how I think too much :-/
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Depends. I work long hours during the week so sometimes I just put
on Netflix, chill at the house, and save it for Saturday. Sometimes
I'll go out, but a nap is usually needed first!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Really can't think of anything. Ask me and maybe I'll tell you . .
. I probably will, I've got nothing to hide.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are not into games, have an open mind, and would like a
gentleman in your life. I'm not at all interested in drama or
someone who is shallow. I'm in no rush, but would prefer a
