Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
ABOUT ME: I'll be the first to admit that I spend a lot of time
working. I own two companies and rental property in several states,
and write on the side. I like to stay busy.
Because my work is very demanding and stressful, I try to make the
most of my down time. When not at the office, I can usually be
found kayaking, hiking, rock climbing, jogging, playing tennis, or
traveling. I love the outdoors and spend an increasing amount of
time at my place in the mountains. I also spend a lot of time at
the beach, which is one of my favorite places.
Although I love the outdoors, I'm not a country boy. I don't hunt,
fish, or drink beer, and don't particularly care for country music.
I prefer an evening in the city - visiting a museum, having a few
cocktails at a rooftop club, then catching a live
I'm hard working, ambitious, fiscally responsible, and intelligent.
I prefer to be organized and well planned, but have moments of
spontaneity that always lead to an exciting adventure.
ABOUT YOU: You should enjoy some of the same activities, especially
kayaking, hiking, and traveling. Having a flexible schedule is
definitely a plus, as is an entrepreneurial spirit. Health
consciousness is a must.
You should also be independent, ambitious, intelligent, and
fiscally responsible. If you work hard and play hard, we should get
along just fine.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I get up early, work out for a half hour, and am at the office by
8. I typically have a quick lunch at my desk and work until 6.
After a quick change, I either head out for a jog or go kayaking
until dusk, then have a light dinner before working in my home
office until bed around 11.
On Wednesday nights, I work late then meet friends for trivia and
drinks at a local pub. On the weekends, if I'm in town, I'll work 8
hours on Saturday then go hiking and kayaking. On Sundays, I enjoy
playing tennis, working the Times crossword, and exploring the

When I smile, my dimples are very noticeable. Otherwise, possibly
my green eyes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
BOOKS: I enjoy reading and consume several books a week. My library
at home could pass for a bookstore with its variety of topics. For
purely recreational reading, I enjoy Stuart Woods, Jeffrey Archer,
Harry Turtledove, S. M. Stirling, Clive Cussler, Nelson DeMille,
and James Patterson.
MOVIES: I don't actually watch many movies. Most that I do watch
are recommendations from friends. I very rarely go to the
SHOWS: I also don't have a television at home, so don't really
watch many shows. The only show I follow is Game of Thrones, which
I watch at a friend's house.
MUSIC: While driving, I prefer electronica and alt rock - something
with a good beat. At home, I listen to a lot of indie rock. At the
office, I listen to relaxing music that helps me deal with stress -
sax solos, piano, or soft jazz.
FOOD: I enjoy good, healthy food made from fresh ingredients. I eat
very little meat or other animal products. I especially enjoy
Italian, Greek, French, and Mexican.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I thought about this more closely and asked myself what six things
would I grab if my home was on fire.
2. Family photos
3. Cell phone
5. Car keys
6. Overnight bag (I always keep one packed)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
A lot goes through my mind. At work, I am fairly single minded on
whatever task I am currently working on, but outside of work, my
mind wanders over many topics. I'm always thinking of new business
opportunities, how to finance another property, where to go in my
next travels, new kayaking or hiking routes, and ideas for novels.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
If I'm not heading out of town for the weekend, I'm typically
having dinner with friends. I can't remember the last Friday that I
didn't have plans.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Unlike a lot of men, I have no hangups about a woman taking the
initiative in making contact. I'm looking for an independent woman,
and that would be one sign of independence. If you read through my
profile and think you would be a good fit for me and me a good fit
for you, then please, by all means message me.
