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. Home: I'm living at home with my parents right now. I will move
out this fall (could go sooner, but want to spend one more summer
with my sister before she enters a ministry program). The main
reason I've been here as long as I've been is I was helping out a
friend financially a lot (major health and other issues). That was
a big life lesson for me in being careful what you let yourself get
involved with (I'm no longer helping beyond very minimal things).
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'm deciding between a finance like major
(accounting probably) or a more IT direction. Either way, I think
I'll be taking some classes for the next 2 years. Mostly likely
going the accounting direction.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm creative. 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 them.
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
