Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My career guided me here to the pacific north west in fall of 2011,
and thankful for it.
I speak from the heart, and sometimes honest to a fault. I find
humor in every day life. I will go out of my way to bring someone
joy, who is also willing to do the same for me. I want to meet
someone who is mature and has a good plan. An interesting woman,
with a friendly and outgoing social personality. I think the right
woman for me is courageous, honest, loving, and shares my playful
sense of humor.
I took a break from online dating over the winter months to hit the
reset button. Now that spring is here I am feeling refreshed, and
focused on I want in a relationship, as that person could become a
life time best friend.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I have a dog named Beau, he is a ladies man, and an introvert. I
rescued him a few years ago, and he is my buddy, until a lady
enters his house, then he is your dog.
I love to cook, and pretty damn good as my confidence has improved
over the years. I was that kid that kicked it in the kitchen while
the men grumbled at football during family events. Grandma cooked
everything from scratch, and my mother could frankenstein a
casserole out of anything.
I love active things, but not hamster wheels. Day hikes, bike
rides, and adventures are awesome. Running in place while glaring
in to a TV watching Dr Phil, is not.
I recently dropped a bunch of weight from cutting back on the booze
and snacks. I will likely pick coffee or tea over whiskey most
times, as I have found caffeine to be just as effective as booze to
get the social juices flowing. I also like getting silly with nice
single malt, and the honesty it brings to the conversation.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Creating a healthy life work balance.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books are random. I enjoy fiction on screen, and non-fiction or
satire on paper. I blame Stephen King, and embrace Amy Sedaris if
that makes sense.
Movies: Foreign films, dramas, thrillers, etc. I don't own a cable
box since paying for commercials is silly. Netflix is getting quite
good at knowing what I want to watch.
Food: I love variety. It could be a tofu, pork cheek, jelly infused
something, and I will scarf down every last bite, simply because
that is something I never had before.
Music: I write the occasional tune, and could sing on a road trip.
If you are tone deaf, that's cool, join in so we can sound awful in
harmony. Random artists on my phone; Chet Faker, Andreya Triana,
Arts the Beatdoctor, Bonobo, Jon Hopkins, Moderat, The Q4, and
Telefon Tel Aviv.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Lazy afternoon naps.
2. Beau, my dog.
3. Friends in it for the long haul.
4. Creative things that inspire.
5. Finding comfort in simple pleasures.
6. A clean place to dwell.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
If I had no eyesight, would I walk around nude?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Unplugging from work somewhere chill. The venue varies.

I like more than elevator chit-chat on a date, and you should too.
We may click, and that's awesome. If not, that's ok. So be random
