Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi I'm Michael. I'm originally from the Northeast, but recently
finished grad school in Paris. I currently live in CO. I love to
travel and meet new people. I've lived in several places, including
Thailand, Paris, Kenya, Jordan, and Palestine. Cooking is
definitely my favorite past-time, and I love to teach others my
recipes (such as potato soup!)
I'm also a hopeless movie addict. I will watch almost anything and
I love it when people recommend things to me. What movie would you
recommend? Bonus points if its a total B horror film. (a la
Thankskilling, or, even better, Birdemic)
My friends would probably describe me as easy-going and down to
earth. I'm athletic and enjoy working out, especially hiking, but
my love of unhealthy food sometimes gets the best of me.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Just moved to Ft. Collins after finishing school. I'm following up
on a few projects while discovering my new Colorado life.
It's kinda lonely because I don't know anyone yet but I love making
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Cooking way too much food, playing devils advocate in arguments,
making to-do lists. I'm pretty good at lots of things but I'm also
super clumsy and a terrible speller.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My height! Especially if I'm with someone short.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: The last three books I read were "Watership Down," "The
Gadfly" and "Profiles in Courage."
Movies: Anything funny, or intelligent, hopefully both! getting
into old black and whites lately. Jimmy Stewart is kinda my
I also have a strange love for really terrible movies!!
TV Shows: Dexter, Arrested Development, Walking Dead (if you agree
that Carl is a punkass, send me a message cause we'll probably get
along.) Also, I can correctly guess which house the'll pick on
Househunters with near perfect accuracy. I haven't figured out how
to use this super power for good OR evil yet...
Music: Clutch is my favorite band ever! The last concert I went to
was Breaking Benjamin. One of my current favorites is Seasick
Steve. I grew up with blues and rock but I like all sorts. I want
to go to more concerts and shows to open up my tastes a bit. I
don't know a lot about music because I've been out of the country
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
mmm I don't know, I've done without a lot. My friends I guess but
that sounds cliche. Laughter, I like laughing and hearing other
people laugh. I really appreciate a comfy bed too.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Job leads! New recipes, new workouts and boxing.
I think about the future a lot, where I want to live, what kind of
person I'm trying to be. You know, the big questions!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Hanging out with some friends. Clubs aren't really my thing, I'd
rather be able to hear the people I'm with. Could be at a bar for
drinks, getting dinner or just hanging in for an impromptu movie
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I listen to Aretha Franklin when I need to concentrate (don't judge
till you try it).
