Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
The last couple of years have seen a lot of changes for me. I ended
a fifteen year relationship, lost my home, and went back to
college. It's been scary and exciting for me, and I'm getting back
on my feet and am getting back to a positive place. I work full
time and go to school part time, so I don't have a lot of free
time. I would need to be with someone who can be understanding of
that. That being said, I will always make time for the right
person. I'm not looking for "new friends" unless it leads to
something more than just a friendship. I'm slowly getting back to a
place where I'd prefer a long-term relationship.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working full time and studying Physical Therapy Assisting.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
School. I've been quite proud of how well I've done since I've gone
back. I really wasn't a good student in my late teens and twenties
when I was pursuing a creative writing degree. Life had to kick me
around a bit, in the form of joining the Marines, before I grew up
enough to apply myself. Once upon a time, I would've said my
martial arts, boxing and exercise, but I've had to sacrifice to
focus on school. Like most skills, you have to practice, and I find
I just don't have the time and energy.
The first things people usually notice about me

I'm told I have warm brown eyes. I'm also told that I can be too
serious. If you encounter this, just smile or tell me a joke. It's
very easy to get me back into a good mood.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Too many of all to list here, but I'll mention my favorites of
late. Just finished reading Horns by Joe Hill (also read Heart
Shaped Box and 20th Century Ghosts by him), and a collection of old
detective noir novels by Lawrence Block. I really enjoyed Joyland
by Stephen King, more mystery than horror, but his best in a while
for me. Just finished Ironhorse, the latest in Robert B. Parkers
Appaloosa series. Most recent movie I watched was Her, at least at
the cinema. I'm a huge movie geek and I'm always watching
Enjoy a lot of Britcoms and BBC shows, old and new. Parks and Rec
and 30 Rock were my favorite sitcoms (don't have time to watch any
regularly anymore). Enjoying on demand re-runs of the series
Hannibal a great deal. A great cast and really well done. It's
inspiring me to re-read Red Dragon by Thomas Harris (which will
probably mean re-watching the movie Manhunter). A vicious cycle,
which probably tells you a lot about how my twisted brain
Musically, I enjoy too wide a variety to name them all. I have
Alabama Shakes, Neko Case, and Willie Nelson in the car CD player
right now. I also discovered a cd of 60's Japanese garage bands in
a discount bin that was a huge amount of fun for an impulse buy. I
like jazz and classical to relax to, and classic rock & country
and old school r&b and funk to have on in the background.
I'm very open minded when it comes to food as long as it's not too
spicy. Sadly, I have a lot of food allergies, but it rarely keeps
me from finding something I can have at most restaurants.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. A good read
2. My friends and family
3. Exercise (Don't exercise as regularly as I have in past years,
but I still need to let off some steam now and again.)
4. Sense of purpose (I have to be doing something that is
important, and not just for me.)
I'll list the rest as I think of them.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
In general, I just think too much. I'd like to spend more time just
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Not necessarily Friday, since I have to study some Fridays, but I
do have fun nite one nite a week. Fun night might just be pool or
darts with my friends, an Indianapolis Indians game, or burlesque
bingo at the White Rabbit in Fountain Square. Also would like to go
back to the IMA again this season. I've been there more in the past
year than the previous five. Though I'd be just as happy staying in
with someone special, and I'm always up for suggestions.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have a huge man-crush on Richard Armitage, the actor who plays
Thorin Oakenshield in The Hobbit. Damnit, if only I could grow a
beard like that.
