Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My name is Scott. I am 30 years old and a graduate of Duquesne
University with a BS in Biology. I have a full time 40/week job
where I do sales as well as manage staff. Those are the parts of
the job I tolerate to get to do the part of the job I really enjoy,
working with marine fish and corals.
I own my own house, I drive an '07 (new style) soft-top Jeep
Wrangler and a cruiser style motorcycle. It's not a Harley, yet. I
don't live the Harley lifestyle, I don't own any Harley clothing. I
like living in an area that gets the best of all 4 seasons, so I
don't have a problem with it being winter. That being said, I can't
wait for spring to break to take the top off the Jeep and get the
bike out to enjoy the outdoors again.
I don't eat seafood. I will gladly go to a seafood restaurant with
you, I will have chicken or beef. I can be a picky eater but find
something I am happy with on just about any menu. There is only one
kind of ketchup, Heinz.
I am usually looked at as the 'funny' one amongst my friends and
family. Given the chance, I will make you laugh. I'm comfortable
with who I am and where I am at in my life. I took 13 years of
dance lessons growing up; I learned to be secure with myself.
I'm a very loyal person. I believe in honesty. I believe omitting
details to avoid telling a lie... is a lie. I'm not interested in
liars. I believe telling me you are texting with a "friend" sounds
shady... your friends have names, I will try to learn all of them.
I like meeting new people, especially when we all mesh well.
I will never check your phone/computer to see who you have been
talking/texting to, I feel that is an invasion of privacy. If I
want to know, I'll ask and character determines the rest. If you
want to know anything about me, ask.
I will text you to see how your day is going, not because you want
me to; I genuinely want to know. I will open doors for women
whether they're 24 or 94, its how I was raised. If you'd prefer I
didn't do such a thing for you, tell me and I'll respect your
wishes, I 'get' Women's Lib. too. I will send or bring flowers
randomly just because. Every woman deserves flowers more often than
men send them.
I like to find that perfect balance with someone where we go out
for fun nights on the town but are just as content curled up with a
movie and cooking at home. I like to cook but don't do it often
I believe toilet paper should be hung in the "over the top" style.
If you hang a new roll at my house in the 'under' style, I will fix
If you don't know which the correct form of "they're/their/there"
or "you're/your" is to use, we probably are not compatible. I know
what a homophone is.
I am open to dating someone with kids although I have never dated a
woman with more than one child before. I hope to have my own kids
someday and would never treat your children differently than I
would my own. I am an uncle to a 1-year old.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I love writing and teaching. My goals beyond what you have read
already include being published in magazines/periodicals over the
next few years and publishing a book within 10.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Solving problems and coming up with new methods of doing things...
better. I'm a very analytical person and have a hard time simply
looking at something.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Since most of my encounters with new people happen at work, that's
the basis of my answer on this one. The most common statement I get
is, "Wow, you know a lot about..." I would say knowledge is what
I'm most known for. I am faster than Googling.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I keep two subscriptions to Sirius radio currently. I like a wide
variety of music but I'm not much for "bands" - that is, I don't
follow any bands in particular, I just like to listen to good songs
from many bands/groups/artists.
Books are not my thing - when I read its usually articles on topics
related to my work and hobby. I love movies, I have a DVD
collection nearly 250 strong. Most are comedy, drama and classic
movies from the $5 bin at Walmart such as "Better off Dead"
"The Breakfast Club." If you have seen the Dancing Outlaw, you
already won my attention.
See my self-summary for dietary concerns.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
If I'm being honest, I believe I'm a strong enough individual this
would have to boil down to biological essentials like water, air,
food. However, in the spirit of the exercise:
Water (to swim in, be around, listen to, watch, etc.)
Watches (I have an affinity for my watches and you will rarely
catch me not wearing one.)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Life. I'm a biologist through and through. I can't look at any
aspect of life without analyzing. From the bee pollenating the
flower to the tracks in the snow. The reason people do the things
they do and act the way they do. I'm fascinated about every aspect
of life and always want to know more.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Working until about 10:30. But I am off Saturday so I'm more than
happy to make a late evening of it. I would love to have someone to
do that with.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I currently have 6 piercings and have been planning a very serious
tattoo for about 6 years. Gotta be perfect before its permanent. If
you want to know more, ask.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You should message me if you read something that catches your
attention. I am looking for someone who takes care of herself. I
think if Taylor Swift was someone's pet, we would call the ASPCA
because she looks emaciated... but I don't want to weigh less than
you either. There is nothing more that I love than curling up on
the sofa in a hoodie with someone... but I don't want that to be
the outfit we wear all the time. I like a woman who puts on a dress
and can go out for an upscale night on the town with me. I also
would like if she will throw on a jersey and go tailgating with me
before the Steeler game. Someone who will come to me to my nephew's
birthday party and listen to my grandma tell you how good the pie
is at Bob Evans (I apologize in advance for that.) I don't need
someone with a MENSA card but we have to be able to carry on a
conversation. Preferably one where you laugh at my jokes. Mostly,
someone who I can trust and rely on. I'm a faithful, loyal, and
caring guy and I'm looking to find someone who can reciprocate
that. If you're those things... message me.
Who are you looking for?
