Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am attracted to people who have had to work to find their path -
not people who seem to have always known the way and certainly not
those who are spinning in unsuccessful circles.
I have a pretty fantastic life, with great friends and creative
work that I love.
I'm a dog lover - that's important. I volunteered at an animal
shelter for several years and now have an insanely lovable French
Officially, I'm an ENFJ, though I tend to identify as a people

I'd like to meet a woman who is happy, healthy, sexy, sane and
smart. One who is ready for the real thing. We've all got a list;
that's mine - right up front.
I'm smarter than a Roomba (much smarter, for what it's worth) and
funnier than most thumb tacks. I have my shit together. I don't use
asterisks to censor curse w*rds because I'm an adult and so are
I probably don't want to make kids. It's not impossible that this
will change, but if you're specifically looking for someone to have
a kid with, I'm not your best bet. I am, however totally fine with
a relationship with a woman who does have kids. I've actually grown

sit-com and let's hope we're not.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I could do without it if I had to.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Time. And thinking. And sentence fragments.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
