Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Few things about me right now:
1. Family: I have a great immediate and extended family whom I'd do
anything for and vice-versa. I love kids and hope to have some of
my own (or at least get into a relationship with someone who
2. Good Conversations: I am pretty introverted and would never be
accused of being a social butterfly, but I love good conversations
of many types. That can be reminiscing with family, talking about a
movie, discussing history, or a friendly political debate.
Politically, I consider myself a libertarian conservative (I try
not to bring up politics much, but I am pretty opinionated when you
get me started :) ).
3. Trips: I like national parks, theme parks, road trips, and
probably about anywhere to visit. I don't really travel all that
much, but always enjoy when I do.
4. Games: I like playing games with others, whether they be video
games like Mario Kart, board games like Monopoly or Risk,
5. Health: I signed up for a half marathon this fall and am just
starting to get ready. I keep trying to make myself be a little
healthier with mixed results.
6. I try to be there for my friends and family. I've especially
have tried hard for one friend I know who is battling both
depression and major medical issues. I don't even like to think
about how much money I was giving him trying to help him survive
over the past few years. I finally had to draw a line and told him
last month that I wasn't going to help financially anymore (outside
a few small things I said I would do). This was really a big life
lesson for me on being careful about things you let yourself get
7. Home: I'm living at home with my parents right now. This is
largely due to how much I was helping my friend in the past. I am
30 and know I am well past the age I should be living here. My plan
is to spend some quality time with my youngest sister over the
summer (who will be leaving for a missionary program in the fall),
save up a lot extra as it's much easier at home, and move out later
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work at Hollywood Casino as a dealer.
While my current job is very good, after a lot of soul searching,
I'm planning on going back to school soon. My company offers
tuition reimbursement and I've narrowed things down to a few
financial majors (likely accounting).
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm creative in some ways. I generally make my own cards. When my
grandma died a couple years ago, I created a website that was a
virtual trip through the house my grandparents had lived in for
around 55 years. My current project (I usually have family related
project I go back to time to time), is taking all the home videos I
can find (on VHS, 8mm tapes, VHS-C tapes) and digitizing
I love history and theories related to where humanity is going and
am good at math and the sort. I still get calls from siblings in
college asking for help on math and economics.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I love The Hunger Games and Harry Potter books. I like a lot of
Stephen King (The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon and The Stand being my
I really like historical fiction like Jeff Shaara's books (Civil
War novels being the best).
Of shows on right now, I watch Last Man Standing, The Walking Dead,
The Big Bang Theory, Castle, Parks and Rec, and Once Upon a time
(the last three not caught up with, but slowly watching old
episodes). I like a lot of older shows (including some good kids
shows) and have been going through Netflix or YouTube on occasion
and rewatching (Avatar: The Last Air Bender, Bleep My Dad Says, So
Weird, Daria, etc).
Some of my favorite movies include Hocus Pocus, Back to the Future,
Ghostbusters, Star Trek 2, Deep Impact, and the Narnia series, but
I like a lot of different kind of movies.
I'm pretty plain as far as food goes. I guess I like what would
just be stereotypically American food and when out, tend to order
the same thing most of the time. I also love pretzels.
Music wise I'm kind of odd. I like some oldies, country, pop, light
rock, etc. I don't like rap, but I'm pretty open otherwise. What's
weird is that I could tell you very few of the artists of the
schools I like (same goes for actors/actresses in movies).
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Ignoring the big answers like family, faith, etc , I'd say:
1. Christmas with extended family: Weekend after Christmas is my
mom's side Christmas. Best weekend of the year.
2. The woods: I love walks/hikes. I don't take as many of them as I
should, but really enjoy when I do. Favorite ever was in Yosemite
National Park when I went to the top of Half Dome with a sister and
3. College football: Love the whole sport, especially Ohio
4. General Dynamics/Tickerforum: Two websites with great insights
into events going on around the world. Not positive reads generally
(our world is heading for a nasty future), but it feel very true to
5. Halloween: A purely fun holiday.
6. Trips: I don't travel a whole lot and when I do, often it's just
to visit family somewhere else. It's always great to get away for
awhile though and head somewhere.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
As as probably been evident in this profile, I've been working on
general self-improvement a lot lately. I'm trying to look at both
the things I'm doing and my attitudes. After feeling like I was
stuck for a long time, this is leading me in a new direction and
I'm trying to keep focus on it.
For recreation, I think a lot about college football and also spend
time thinking about America's/humanity's future. I'm sadly pretty
pessimistic for the latter. Still, it's strangely fascinating to
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
It varies some. Sometimes I go with family to Buffalo Wild Wings
Friday night or enjoy a firepit/movie with them. I have a good
couple friends from work I see sometimes, although usually not
