Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Father. Sales Guy. Yogi. Lover.
Since I'm no good at self-summary, I'm going to crib something that
xbklyngrrlx wrote about me. Also it describes the guy I hope I come
"He is dapper, flirtatious, and a gentleman. He puts most white men
on the dance floor to shame, appreciates good grammar and bawdy
humor equally. He charms the pants off everyone ((or skirt) and
sometimes actually off!). His bendyness has inspired me to get
bendy, too. He is a child whisperer & an amazing dad. His
chicken soup cured my flu and his cocktails should be shared with
the worthy (open invite, byoliquor). He is a gifted yet understated
lion tamer and problem solver.
While I haven't known him very long in the grand scheme of things,
his hidden Superpower is his heart of gold and that, plus all the
rest, makes [redacted] a unicorn of a man whose friendship we all
I'll take it.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Being as close as possible to those that I love.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Finding a meal where there was only food. Finding a cocktail where
there were only bottles. Finding my way from here to there.
Also, hot chocolate. Seriously, I was sipping on a batch that I
just made and had to come here to brag. It's a pretty big deal.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm bald. Yep. There it is. I am follically challenged. You want a
man who uses all his testosterone on a useless head of hair, I'm
not your guy. I use it for other things. But, you know, we'll get
to that eventually.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I love to read. It may be the overarching passion of my life. But,
my favorite books always seem to be connected to the time of my
life I read them and not necessarily their quality.
Were I to list them here, we'd have nothing to talk about.
Tell you what, ask me what I'm reading and I'll tell you. Because
there's always at least one answer to that. Weird that this seems
like such a personal question....
Favorite movies and television tend to be be defined by the voices
in them. I love the sound of conversation. Sooo, in no particular
order The Thin Man, Philadelphia Story, West Wing (1st 4 seasons
but really, the rest is like pizza. Even when it's bad, its still
pretty good), SportsNight, Studio 60 On The Sunset Strip, Gilmore
Girls, Parenthood, Mad Men, Breaking Bad. I'm sure there's
As to food. My palate is as itchy to explore as the rest of me.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
-A new mountain (literal and metaphorical) to climb.
That leaves me one more. Want to audition for the spot?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
-Where I'm going next.
-How little do I have to carry with me? (seriously, I spend a LOT
of time on this one.)
-Why does my inbox fill faster than I can empty it?
-What does "open relationship" mean? For that matter, what does
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I haven't really settled in on typical since I've moved here.
Lately I've been a little obsessed with yoga, so most Friday nights
have been working until I'm done, dinner with co-workers and/or
yoga and home to crash after a long week. Also, I seem to have find
myself spending a lot of time with someone who likes to dance as
much as I do on a Friday night.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am in an open relationship. We find time to meet new people and
build new relationships. But, at the end of the day (or week) we
end up at home together. Sometimes with friends.
Also, if we hit it off, at some point, we will find ourselves on a
dance floor and you will likely be embarrassed. I REALLY like to
dance. But, as I type this, it occurs to me that its possible you
won't be embarrassed. You might enjoy it. Is there nothing you
can't do, Internet?
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You've got a car. KIDDING!
Message me if I made you giggle. Is there anything sexier than a
beautiful woman giggling?
But, who are we kidding? If you're reading this, it's likely that I
messaged you and you are deciding whether or not to respond. Things
you should know if this is the case:
-When we meet, I will likely have different facial hair. I change
it often and just don't take enough pics of myself to keep up with
the profile image. Today, it's a full beard with a shaved
-I am currently spending a lot of time with an incredibly
open-minded, adorable, smart and funny grrl (I had originally
called her a "lady" here but apparently that is objectionable. Who
knew?). But, we both have active social lives apart from each other
and with each other. If you see yourself involved in one of those
aspects, speak up! Feel free to look her up (xbklyngrrlx).
-A special note about dating. Currently my life is pretty full and
wonderful. And I love adding new people to the cast. I'm not (or
we're not) "unicorn hunting". But if you end being the kind of
friend I (or we) want to get naked with, fantastic!
-I wasn't kidding about the dancing thing. Seriously, it's
