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 work hard, manage things not people, and
love what I do. I live and work in SLU, but seek refuge elsewhere
when I can. My commute is awesome, but would like a backyard
I speak from the heart, and sometimes honest to a fault. I like the
what makes us human, and will tell my life story to random
strangers if asked. 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 past few months to hit
the reset button, feeling refreshed, and focused on I want in a
relationship, as that person could become a life time best friend.
That said, I am not looking to go on a few dates and move in. Like
many, I have goals in life, but you never know what direction life
will take you, so I am along for the ride.
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, and he is a ladies man. I rescued him a
few years ago, and he is my buddy, until a woman enters his house,
then he is your dog. He also likes to chase cats, but has no clue
what to do if he catches up with them.
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 about stuff 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 like sports, and I am from
another state. As such, I can root for the opposing team whenever I
Over the winter I dropped a lot 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

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 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 bud.
3. Friends in it for the long haul.
4. Creative things that inspire.
5. Finding comfort in simple pleasures.
6. A cozy 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?
