Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm an uncle to an awesome niece and nephew, a friend, a cook,
electrician, home remodeler, baker, reader wanna be writer, and
photographer. I'm usually not far from my kindle. I also have a
slight love affair with the Oxford comma.
So, what am I looking for? Someone who's willing to have some good
conversation over drinks (coffee or otherwise) or quite possibly a
meal if we happen to get hungry. I'm not expecting anything else,
just conversation. I'd like to spend the time just getting to know
each other and let what happens, happens. No pressure, minimal
I originally set this profile up when I was a believer - I'm
currently weeding through questions and changing it up since I've
recently changed to 'unaffiliated but still involved'
I find myself growing increasingly 'liberal' as I age - and
disturbed by the narrow mindedness of people who claim to be open
I while I enjoy my coworkers and their company sometimes one needs
to meet new people in the area. I've been working her long enough
that it's time to embrace it and explore.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a field service technician for a small contractor that sells
electrical equipment to Data Centers. I travel the country
supporting those installations and the acceptance testing necessary
for certification. I'm currently in the Dulles/Ashburb area and
will be here for the next several years. I have an apartment now as
320 nights in a hotel was enough last year... It's nice to have
someplace consistent to go home to - it's also convenient because
it's a five minute walk to work.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Reading. Remembering selective pop-culture references. Looking up
things on the ol' internet. Sneezing. Being there for my friends.
Always wanting to follow any typed "G" with "eocities.com".
I'm a hell of a cook. I can be known to speak in movie quotes from
time to time. I'm gifted at coming up with analogies to explain
difficult concepts... I'm damn good at my job.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I am a voracious reader. Voracious. I do have a home library which
is currently stuffed to the gills with books. I still love spending
time in the stacks at the used book stores looking for a bit of
overlooked treasure. One of these days I'm gonna thin the herd,
however, since I re-read constantly that's gonna be difficult.
Particulars: The Dark Tower series by Stephen King, Harry Potter,
Mocking Jay series, anything by Joe Hill, anything by Ernest Cline
and a whole slew of others...
I also enjoy Doctor Who, NCIS, Top Gear (UK version!), Sherlock,
BSG, and just discovered The West Wing on NetFlix - fantastic
writing. I also just started watching Friends - I'd dismissed it
Music: Almost anything. I just discovered that Pandora limits you
to 60 different stations- drat.
Some favorites: NIN, Rush, Smetana, Mozart, anything with a
harpsichord, Smashing Pumpkins, Mumford and Sons, Arlo Guthrie,
Woody Guthrie and hundreds of others.
Shows: Loved Wicked (I read the book and didn't enjoy it - the
musical, however, was/is fantastic) and the Lion King on Broadway.
I want to see more. Community plays are fun and entertaining.
Community access TV? Not so much.
Food: Omnivore who will try anything once. (I've even tried celery
30 or 40 times and still hate it. Ants on a log? Worst. Dessert.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Other than the requirements everyone has (food and water)
Friends & Family.
Cast iron skillet.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The state of the world in general, what's next on my agenda, how my
friends are doing, if I've read that particular article in Wired,
Did I just feel my phone vibrate? No, it's on ring, wait is it?
Mmm... Coffee... Ok, heard that song a lot recently time to skip
it. What shall I read next... Did I just think 'shall' or do I
really use it in real life? Hmm... Got several example texts with
'shall' in them so I guess I do use it... Is it time to go to bed
yet? The state of the world in general, what's next on my
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
It's usually up in the air as to where I am, or what I'll be doing.
If it's nice, I may very well be on my bike wandering about with no
particular destination in mind. Ideally I'd be spending time with
friends having a drink and some intense conversation. Barring that
I'll be somewhere reading (or rereading) a book or three or
experimenting in the kitchen.
I also spend a lot of Friday's in the airport. I didn't realize how
much until I was recognized by a flight attendant...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I currently consider myself an agnostic. I must believe a little
due to some experiences in my past, however the state of the world
as it is leads me to doubt. It's an interesting position to be in.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're looking for conversation and beverages (either caffeinated
or alcoholic) and a relaxed low pressure atmosphere. It's all about
the mental connection and getting to know the person drinking from
the other glass or mug.
