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 enjoy my life. I try and stay active. I recently began playing
soccer. I run (with the idea in mind that running means I can eat
lots), I stay busy with school and work.
I'm easy going and generally in a positive, friendly mood, but I
have my down days too. I'm not quick to get angry, I'm 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 4 really good ones.
I 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.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I love my job. My job is hard. I work full-time as a clinician in a
community mental health agency. I want to continue doing work like
this for a long time.
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.
Ordering dessert. I'm super awesome at that.
I appreciate good conversations too, and I have a natural curiosity
about the world. I'm a bright person and I always have something on
I'm not a bad cook either. Eating out is great, but I enjoy cooking
at home just as much. I make great pies.

I have been trying for years to figure out how to properly insert
commas into sentences. I have basically given up and I'm starting

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, let's have an adventure!
A long-term relationship ended last fall with no hard feelings and
no drama (we've stayed friends, yay!), so I'm interested in taking
things nice and slow. I'm looking for someone to be my best friend
first, and take it from there.
