Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi, my name is Eric. I've been on OKC for way longer than I'd like
to admit...but, what can I say? I'm persistent; and this is my
principle means for meeting people outside of my somewhat removed
locale. I don't live near you: I live and work at a well-known hot
springs retreat and conference center near the Mt. Jefferson
Wilderness. That said: I'm largely mobile, and often enjoy spending
weekends in Portland, Salem, or Bend, where I hope to meet some of
I've worked as a culinary professional for most of my 20s, cooking
and managing; but recently hung-up my apron for a desk upstairs and
a much broader set of responsibilities. That said, you can't take
the kitchen out of the cook: the kitchen imbued me with all the
qualities and drive that have made me successful.
When I'm not playing charades at work...I'm kinda shy and typically
mellow. I enjoy things that keep me active and outdoors; traveling;
when the sun goes down, I prefer to unwind with some friends,
broaden my mind through reading, and watch movies with my cat until
it's time to go to sleep.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working, traveling, savoring the moment; hoping to stumble into
Not trying to impress anyone here. I manage to live a very busy
life in the midst of a place that aspires to proliferate notions of

I'm actively searching for love and companionship. I don't think
anyone could say I'm looking for love in all the wrong
places...it's just that I haven't found it.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Navigating without a map.
Seeing the details.
Telling time with no watch.
Keeping plants alive.
The first things people usually notice about me

It's been a while since anyone's provided fodder for this
...but I'm imagining them noticing that my nose has been broken.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I usually skip this section when reading other people's profiles.
We all like what we like, right? And if someone doesn't like the
same things as you: who cares? I welcome your variety and
What really matters is...
Food! Going out to dinner is an important part of any urban
experience. Adventurous taste-buds and an appreciation for cuisine
ranging from refined to out-and-out messy will serve you well when
dining with me.
FYI: my typical playlist is a mash-up that will have you guessing.
90s child; club-ready teen; Indie loving ex. I won't judge anything
you are listening to. I love to share music; and dance; get
caught-up in a good beat, or let-go of the unseen.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
You wouldn't believe some of the things I go without...
however, I'm especially fond of my cat;
...and I really enjoy midnight snacks.
Coffee is a must if you hope to get anywhere with me before 1pm.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I don't spend a lot of time thinking about anything...I spend a lot
of little-bits of time thinking about everything!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Among friends, music, and drinks.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I shower outdoors and love it.
