Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Student, lover of all things food related, reader, writer and
ponderer of life's big questions...
I'm a young guy who loves to get after it. I love taking day trips
and long weekends in Portland. I'm into hiking, kayaking, I
exercise a bit, yoga, blah blah blah. That's a lie, I need to
exercise more, but I'm slim and in decent shape.
I have been living on Bainbridge Island for the past four years,
but I'm moving back into Seattle in the next six months. I'm easy
going and generally in a positive, friendly mood, but I have my
down days to. I'm not quick to get angry, patient with others and I
try very hard to empathize with everyone.
People and relationships are very important to me. I'm not the kind
of guy with tons of friends, I have about 10 really good
I dislike rudeness, appreciate both small-talk and deep
conversations, don't take myself too seriously, sometimes take
myself too seriously, like animals just fine, enjoy kids (don't
have any of my own) and eat anything that's not junk food. I've
baked award winning pies, made delicious jams and love my America's
Test Kitchen cook books.
I'm just getting out of a one-year relationship with no hard
feelings and no drama, so I'm interested in taking things nice and
slow. I'm looking for someone to date.
Although I live on Bainbridge Island, I work and go to school in
Seattle. I am in the city very frequently.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work full-time as a clinician in a forensic program with a large
mental health agency in King County. I work with low-income people
who live with both mental illness and substance abuse problems.
It's a pretty intense job, but I love it. It's a big career change
for me. I spent 15 years as a waiter and bartender. I continue to
pick up shifts very occasionally in a French bistro once named one
of Washington's ten best restaurants.
I'm also a graduate student in the University of Washington's
Master of Social Work program. That's the thing in my life that I'm
the most proud of.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Talking with all kinds of people and relating to other peoples
struggles and victories in life.
I'm not a bad cook either. Eating out is great, but I enjoy cooking
at home just as much. This summer I've been making jam like a fool.
My blueberry pie will blow your hair back. My inner child might be
a 70 year-old grandma.

You're interested in getting to know a nice guy who has goals and
is actively working towards them. That means I'm pretty busy, but I
love having fun. Dating and relationships are about doing things
together. In case you didn't know, social workers don't make shit.
