Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I’ve written and rewritten this more than once trying to capture
who I am and what I’m looking for in a concise and genuine way.
Here I go again….
What I am….
Sincere, devoted, atypical, generous, quirky, perceptive, conflict
adverse, diplomatic, caring, empathetic, determined, disciplined,
capable, an excellent cook, literate, imaginative, hygienic
What I’m looking for….
Fit non smoker, no criminal record, self sufficient, but interested
in building something better with a partner, at least passingly
interested in politics even if we have conflicting views, not so
serious that life is not fun, not so fun that life is chaotic, not
angry/bitter/resentful or obsessive, must have a job or a career.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I have some very well defined goals that I can elaborate on later
if we start talking.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I was a chef in my former life so cooking is second nature to
I'm good at putting myself in other peoples shoes and understanding
both sides of an argument.
I'm great at giving insightful advice, if only I were as good at
taking it when it's given lol
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Things I like: Game of Thrones, LOTR, Emotional Intelligence, Bill
Maher, NPR, sushi, Thai food, Pho, and my musical tastes are so
eclectic it's hard to describe, the only thing I don't go for in a
big way country music (and even then there are some old school
exceptions like Willie Nelson and Johnny Cash)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My kids, a job that provided a sense of purpose, working out,
cooking, hiking, faith in a better tomorrow.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How I'm going to get from where I am to where I want to be.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I'm something of a homebody, if I don't have the kids I'm probably
cooking something they wouldn't like and watching a movie that
isn't appropriate for when I have them.
Friday night is also a great night to hit the gym since everyone
else is out partying :-)
