Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
In high school I had my whole life planned out. Today, I'm so glad
life had a different plan! Even though I'm still on the same path I
imagined, I just take things one day at a time and try to enjoy
each day as much as possible.
Most people say that college years are the best years of your life.
Well, for me it’s the other way around. THIS is the best year of my
life! And I plan on being able to say that every year for the rest
of my life. (PS: I originally wrote this a few years ago and it's
I'm definitely not a shy person, and by now, I have a pretty good
idea of what I’m looking for. I believe that almost any two people
can make it work, but when you find the right person, it will be a
lot easier than it would with the rest.
Here are the top 5 qualities I'm looking for in a guy:
1. Confident, but open minded (I think you need both for a good
2. Health conscious (I want to enjoy this life for as long as
possible & for that you need to take care of yourself)
3. Being active/outdoorsy (I love to do anything outside, no matter
the season and am looking for a partner in crime)
4. Caring (towards family, friends, strangers & the
5. Intelligent/Cultured (As much as I love playing in the dirt, I
also really enjoy a museum visit or the orchestra. It doesn't have
to be your passion, but being able to enjoy it with me once in a
while would be really appreciated)
A little about me:
I’m close to my family and have a few close friends. I would say
that I’m a very rational person and definitely a realist, but
somehow I also manage to be pretty positive most of the time. (I'll
let you be the judge of that)
I don't like to limit myself when it comes to adventures and new
experiences (reasonably) ;)
I have strong views on life, politics and religion, but I keep an
open mind and love having intellectual conversations, especially
when I get exposed to other points of view I never considered
Finding a balance between my life and career is a bit challenging
right now, but I will always try to put my relationships first. I’m
looking for someone who can honestly say the same.
My hope for life is to enjoy my work, spend lots of time with
family and friends, get the most out of life on my free time,
travel and learn about other cultures, and make a positive
contribution for future generations.
This was definitely a lot longer than I intended, but how does one
summarize themselves in a few paragraphs?
I guess now, it’s your turn.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm an architectural designer, working towards my license... and
having a blast in the meantime!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
seeing the big picture, patience, problem solving, but most
importantly, having fun!
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've been told it's my smile. I tend to smile all the time,
sometime, too much, I think. But I believe this is one case where
too much is way better than not enough.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I mostly like classic rock, but almost anything with a good melody
and beat will do. My all time favorite show is Friends and How I
Met your Mother, but I've added a few others since then. I'm trying
keep up with the Walking Dead and Game of Thrones, but not doing
such a great job. I love historical or action/adventure movies.
Don't like horror/scary films.
I love musicals, the Orchestra and live music in general. I've yet
to see a play or an opera.
I read a variety of books, from educational to just plain silly,
but my favorites are historical and current novels based on real
As far as food is concerned, I'm a big fan! I try to maintain a
healthy, balanced diet in general, but love trying new things and
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I think I'm pretty resourceful and adopt pretty easily, so instead,
I'll list the 6 things I value the most.
1. My family
2. My friends
3. My health
4. My independence
5. Fresh air / the outdoors
6. Art / Culture
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I'm pretty philosophical, so I guess I ponder the basic life's big
questions quite a bit. What do I need to do to be happy and make
others around me happy? How can I make the world a little bit of a
better place for future generations?
Although, I can be pretty selfish sometime, in which case it would
be: What's the next delicious thing I will eat and what's the next
fun thing I will do? :)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Having dinner and drinks with my friends, enjoying a golf game
during the summer, out at a bar playing pool, or just recharging at
home with a good movie.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!

other face to face.
