Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Thank you for checking out my bio. I'm originally from Illinois.
Moved to Wilmington, Delaware about 9 years ago for a great job in
healthcare managing programs and people. I'm a social worker by
trade. I have a wide variety of interests and am open to new
experiences. Enjoy being with people and like to keep busy. I'm a
Leo (7/28). According to Myers-Briggs I'm an ESTJ.
I like many types of music. Piano, violin and the human voice are
my favorite instruments. I like live theater and the arts. Prefer
homemade meals but also like to eat out on occasion. Like going for
walks, watching movies, time with family/friends, gardening and the
ocean. Bought a town home 2 years ago.
I've had some unusual pets which you can ask about. I help out at
the local theater and the food pantry. I exercise 5-6 times/wk
(P90X and Planet Fitness). I also enjoy yoga and meditation.
Honesty, loyalty and kindness are critical values for me. I'm
looking for someone I can let my guard down with. I'm not shy. I
can talk to just about anyone. However, often I'm quiet and
reserved until I feel comfortable. It's when I trust and feel safe
that the more confident and humorous side of me comes out. I have a
lot to say but I'm also an excellent listener. I have a great sense
of humor. I'm playful and fun loving. I'm traditional in the sense
that I like to date and talk. Love to be romanced, cared for,
touched, cuddled, kissed and held.
I'm very happy with my life and open to sharing it with someone
special. I know relationships take time to form but ultimately I'm
looking for someone I can share a deep, committed, trusting, equal
relationship with. If we start with just a conversation we can see
if we have "chemistry" or maybe even a great friendship.
That's a little bit about me in 2000 words or less. I look forward
to hearing more about you :-) Darin
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I keep a good balance between work and personal. I like my job and

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Movies: Prefer to watch movies at home. Love suspense and action
and to be on the edge of my seat. Like a good tear jerker once in a
while and a good comedy as often as possible.
Music: Wide interest depending on my mood. Love the arts and
especially live theater.
Books: I'm a fan of books about travel, self improvement,
leadership and fantasy.
TV: Rarely have a show I watch religiously. Mostly watch Netflix. I
like shows like Friends, Will and Grace, Doc Martin, Nat Geo, HGTV.
I like comedies, documentaries and nature and travel shows.
Food: Love deserts but generally a very healthy eater. Shop at the
farmers market on a regular basis. Make my lunch everyday.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Family and friends
The comfort of home
Loyalty and trust
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I think about enjoying my life and making the most of every minute.
I think about my future and where I'd like to be long-term. I think
about my future partner and what he might be doing today :)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Often at home watching a good movie. However, I love getting out,
so I could also be at a play, traveling to the beach or eating out
at a restaurant or hanging out with friends. Very rarely go to bars
or clubs. To be honest, I'd rather be at a friends house playing
games, eating and/or watching tv then going to a bar or club.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'll share everything with you as we get to know each other. I'm an
open book. I believe good communication is key to a strong
relationship and honesty is crucial to developing trust.
