Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a 45 year old male looking for my partner and best friend. As
for the basics: I have a good job, my own car and house, and no
kids or drama.
I am looking for a woman who is comfortable in her own shoes who
likes spirited talk, some good times, and enjoys life.
I am overweight, but I recently got a wake-up call. I have started
to try to eat better, and actually exercise at least 3 times a
week. So far I have lost 13 lbs in 2 months. I wouldn't mind
someone who wants someone to work out with them. But I am a work in
I like to think I am funny, witty, smart, and charming. I LOVE the
banter between men and women who don't realize they are in love yet
(think Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan in "When Harry Met Sally." I will
tease you more the more I like you. I EXPECT you to tease me back
I am shy, but not. Confident but not. Independent but not. Single
but....Yeah I am still single.
And for fun, my original note:
Hi, it's me. I may be that bad idea that seems like a good idea at
the time. Or I may be the best kept secret this side of the
Atlantic. I am not too scary, so you might as well take a chance.
Oh, and I am VERY ticklish, if that helps. And I tend to think I am
funnier than I really am. Short answer is that I am just a single
guy with no drama looking for some company. Laters, and give me a
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
**Update: I was sounding so lame: I have got a decent job I like
and am good at. I don't have any kids, but I like having a good
time and doing the right thing. All in all, it's a pretty good life
I wouldn't mind sharing.**
Some people say it's a waste. I know it got off to a turtle-with a
limp start. But I have no worry lines and no drama, a way to get
around, a roof over my head that's mine, and making some money.
It's not so bad. Would it be TOO corny if I said I was looking for
you? Basically, I am making do, and liking it!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Here's a loaded question. Do backrubs count? *I* say I am good, but
really, how can I tell?
It's not sports. As much as I would like to say otherwise, I have
the grace of a tipsy monkey.
I seem to be good at saying what I am lousy at. So I guess enough
of that and on to the good stuff!
I would have to say I have a firm grasp of trivia, a quirky sense
of humor, and a spirit you can't beat down. On top of that, I am a
pretty good listener, and I have an eye for all things geeky!
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
It's either that goofy grin I sport, or if I am REALLY unlucky,
it's how ungraceful I am right after I either stepped on their foot
or tripped into their back....
It really is my smile. My smile gets into my eyes, and is the
window into my soul. Ok, so maybe it's my eyes. Truth be told, I
never asked anybody what my best feature is. Maybe I should take a

Hmmm. High entertainment!
TV: Big Bang Theory, West Wing, Lost, My Name is Earl, and just
about anything Sci Fi. If it's reality, I avoid it, and then beat
it down with a stick. I'll watch the Vikings too, but I am the
biggest Twins geek. I will usually at least have the game on and
doing something else.
Movies: Princess Bride, Contact, Harry Potter, and Cutting Edge.
Anything sci fi, lots of cheesy comedies, and the complete works of
Kevin Smith (although the Mallrats DVD is still in plastic wrap). I
tend to have DVD's instead of files. There's something nice about
physically holding it, as opposed to downloading a file. The point
is, I have a LOT of movies to share along with an empty couch.
Although I am not crazy about horror.
Food: Yes. Actually, I will try nearly anything, but I am most
comfortable with the comfort foods (amazing, that!) Pizza, a good
hamburger, ribs, and chicken. Needless to say, I am also now trying
to drive my weight done. I am getting used to regular exercise, and
amazingly, it's not killing me. Go figure....
Music: If it has a beat, I can dance badly to it. I will listen to
nearly anything, although both rap and hip-hop are never my first
choice. But I tend to prefer 80's stuff, country, and classic rock.
I never really fell in love with one type of music or group, so
most of my tastes have come later, and usually started by other
people. Although you should see me press buttons on Rock Band.
You'd think I was a natural.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. I hate to say it but my phone! It's common, but dang it I hate
myself for relying on it.
2. A good book to read. And I will re-read a book again and
3. That glint in my eye that gets me into trouble
4. A good soft pillow for a proper nap!
5. A really good pizza. I never met a pizza I didn't like.
6. A list of my 5 essential things clutched desperately in my
I realized there were no people on the list. It makes me a bit
worried that I am way too comfortable being alone. The habits we
people can get into.....
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I spend a lot of time thinking about different things. But there
doesn't seem to be one overwhelming desire, except maybe chatting
my stream of conciousness with someone. I will think about work,
the sports teams, my family, my friends, or about something I read
in various cycles.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I find my self either playing a video game or taking the occasional
nap on Friday nights lately, depending on how bad work beat me
down. I come home, and unless there are plans, home is where I
stay. Most of my fridays have the personality of an empty jar of

I am not sure I can either share or think of it quite yet. More to
come, I think....

Talk to me if you like what I have to say, if you want to argue
with me, or if you think I might even be Prince Charming. If
nothing else, I could use some new friends. Or, just give my a
hollar if I seem like a good idea at the time. It's been said I am
amazing. Don't make me dig out the character references!!!
