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
I have some very well defined goals that I can elaborate on later
if we start talking.
I’m really good at
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
The first things people usually notice about me
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
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
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
How I'm going to get from where I am to where I want to be.
On a typical Friday night I am
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 :-)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am a huge nerd.
You should message me if
