Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Well hello there and welcome! Just to give you a heads up, I might
be the funniest guy you have yet to meet ever in life. Oh wait,
that's probably not true. I don't know why I said that. Well, too
late now. It's not like I can go back and change it or
What is true however is that I grew up in a country that is eerily
similar to Minnesota (this is a big selling point when I try to
convince my parents and brother to come visit). I laugh often and
smile when I'm not suppose to. If someone point this out, it only
makes it worse. I don't sound like the Swedish chef on the Muppet
Show, but he is by far my favorite character.
I'm a much bigger fan of the film genre of drama than to experience
it in my own life. I like to live in neighborhoods where I can walk
or bike to most places (Uptown or NE anyone?). I used to be a hedge
fund manager for more than 10 years, but now I am working in public
health. Quite the big shift and perhaps comes with the added
benefit of redeeming my soul :)!
I like sports (this has been a big part of my life ever since I
decided as a child that some day I will beat my older brother in
every single sport), science, HBO shows, Netflix, newspapers, funny
YouTube clips, tea with cream in the evenings, coffee without cream
in the mornings and stimulating conversations.
I can't say that I have a ton of criteria for the girl I would like
to meet, I think dating is more about "you know it when you see it"
sort of thing. Having that said, a goofy sense of humor and an
infectious smile would go a long way with me. Chemistry was boring
in high school but seems very important now.
Well, that's about as much as I can talk about myself in one
sitting without getting a bit uncomfortable. Now I would much
rather hear something about you...
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Trying to figure out a very complex healthcare system.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'll dart this question slightly. But I like to think that I am
intellectually curious and I take a lot of pleasure in trying to
understand the world we live in.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Harry Potter, the Hunger Games and those vampire books
(not true, but I figured if you got this far and had nothing in
common with me, this would have been it :)).
I like indie pop music and Wes Anderson type movies.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Family, friends (and significant other) are the only things that
matter a lot. The rest I can do without.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I try to spend as much time with my close friends as possible. I
don't believe "stay at home nights" is something you do in
solitary. Watching a great show with friends while eating take out
is a great way to spend a Friday night I think.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Hmm...I'll get back to you on that one.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Hmmm, I'll just avoid the sales pitch here. You don't need a good
reason to message me, just a tiny bit of curiosity and a little bit
of optimism that perhaps we could really enjoy each other's
company. Looking forward to hearing from you!
