Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Here at okcupid, someone brought to my attention that my profile
probably is not constructed in a way most conducive to attracting
females, unless she is a sports crazed nut. My response: This is
who I am. If you would prefer a bunch of BS that might be found
more attractive as opposed to the honest truth, then most female
profiles I read about wanting to find an "honest, drama-free" guy
are all BS.
I'm 31, living in East-Central IL. I drive a Toyota Tacoma X-Runner
6-Speed Manual Transmission Pickup. I have a steady job working for
a large telecommunications company. And in my free time I tend to
follow sports (Big Bears, Cubs, and 'Hawks fan). Anything else,
feel free to drop a line.
I enjoy playing with my Techie toys, at least some of the time. If
that makes me a bit of a geeky nerd, so be it
I am self sufficient, busy with work, and insightful
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Right now, working for a large telecommunications company as an
I will say that I often work 45 hour weeks, and many times that
free time is need for rest & recovery more than going out.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
helping people out, learning new things. Right now I guess my trade
so to speak is wiring up houses.
I'm also a pretty good problem solver -- just have to think it
through, see the end, and figure out how to get there (that skill
comes in quite handy as an installer).
I am pretty good at making some tasty steak or burgers or chicken
fresh of the grill. The patio pal is a necessity. Which reminds me,
need to get down to Meijer to stock up :P.
I also play a mean game of Euchre, assuming I have a partner that
knows the game & knows how to play. I won't say I win every
game I play (there is a fair amount of chance & luck involved),
but I win more games than I lose. And I enjoy other Card &
Board games as well. There is something more human & fun about
Card/Board games as opposed to Video Games -- I think it is the
Social aspect of human interaction =).
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
is that I'm tall (~6'5) and decently large (~275 lbs). Sometimes
people are a little shocked at the fact I can be gentlemanly when
necessary, and at other times, be your "Average Joe" too.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Clancy Novels, Dune
Movies: Action/Adventure Flicks, Comic Book Movies, SciFi films,
TV Shows: Linear TV: Gotham, Bar Rescue, Game of Thrones, Vikings.
Otherwise, the Netflix subscription does well, that and regular
televised sporting events
Music: 80s Rock, and lately more modern "pop" so to speak -- but
that is only because I enjoy proper use of the synthesizer, and pop
music has been once again picking up on that trend
Food: I eat whatever fails to eat me first
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Beer, Diet Soda, Women, Pay Check, Internet, Family
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The Cubs will win the World Series...By the Law of Averages, it
really is bound to happen!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Lately, usually sleeping. Sounds sad, but I work long hours on
Friday & Saturday, with a 8 AM start (which means getting up
~7ish). So yeah, I sound like an old man, but probably
That being said, should I have a good incentive to go out on a
Friday night for a Social engagement of some sort, the energy most
certainly can be found =)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Yeah, I got nothin' here. I'm not a Central IL native -- a
transplant from Suburban Chicago
