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. Personality: I am somewhat introverted and it takes a little
about around people to open, but I love a good conversation whether
it be of talking about a movie, reminiscing with family, discussing
history, or a friendly politician debate (for the record, I am a
libertarian conservative who is unfortunately very pessimistic
about the future; I try not to get too into politics, but if you
get me going, I have strong feelings).
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 keep trying to live healthier with mixed results. I
ran a half marathon last month, but haven't excercised a whole
since. I am trying to eat a little better, but results have been
mixed and I really probably should stop with pop.
6. Future Plans: I am planning a lot over the next couple of
months. I have been living at home with my parents and siblings and
plan on moving out around January, maybe into February before I'm
out. I am also planning on taking advantage of tuition
reimbursement at work and taking online classes around accounting
(more on that in section below).
7. Relationships: I probably need a relationship to start slower.
Once I commit to something, I am very committed, but I need a
little time to get to that point usually.
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. It's been a very good job
and many people do it for a long time.
While my current job is very good, after a lot of soul searching,
I'm planning on going back to school. I found a way to do it online
fairly cheaply (a must as I refuse to add much more in student
loans after having paid off better than half) and will be doing
something finance/accounting related.
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, The Middle, and
Supernatural (I'm up to season 4).
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 stereotypical 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 songs
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. Trivia Night: I go with my dad and sister (and when they can
make it Mom and/or other siblings) to Max and Ermas for weekly
trivia. It's always one of the highlights of my week.
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?
Thursdays are really more like my Friday night with trivia and
drinks with family. Fridays themselves I usually get off 7/8 and
just head home more often than not for time on the computer (trying
to do that less), Netflix, etc.
