Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a hard worker, a gamer, an animal lover, a reader, a story
lover, a romantic, and a city boy with country roots.
All my life I have always worked hard to achieve what I want. I
persevere and continue on through rough times to get to my goals.
Even though I may not always know exactly what's waiting for me on
the other side, I never stop pushing forward. That being said, I
also like to relax and have some fun after all the hard work. I
enjoy playing video games, reading a book, watching Netflix, and
hanging out with friends.
I love animals, especially dogs! Most of my life I planned on
becoming a vet but for whatever reason I instead ended up going
into business. I still really enjoy animals, and nature in general.
My family is from the country, but I was raised in the city. So I
still have an appreciation for farmland but have not experienced
everything I would like to. I've gone hiking before and seen
mountains in person, but I'd still love to try camping and spend
some more time outdoors.
With me working so much, I've become a bit of a homebody and will
often hang out at home by myself or with friends. My roommate and I
occasionally host nerd nights that involve Magic: The Gathering,
Munchkin, Doctor Who, and other indulgences. When home alone I like
to spend free time playing video games when I get a chance. I
recognize video games as a form of art and enjoy all aspects of
them from rich story to complex characters to stunning visuals and
of course great gameplay. While I do a lot more with my life than
play video games, I would definitely be happy if I got more time to
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Right now I'm working full time in retail management. I just
recently got promoted to store manager so I plan to continue
working in retail for at least a few more years. I eventually would
like to go back to school to either further my degree in business
or to study medicine.
There have been several times when I had my life figured out and
knew exactly what I wanted to do and how I was going to do it. But
life is funny and none of those plans I've figured out have every
really worked out. I know that eventually I want a house and kids
and a successful career that let's me spend time with them, but for
now I'm still trying to choose which path to take me there.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm usually a pretty good talker. I used to be very shy and
introverted and had trouble making conversation. Eventually I
forced myself to start opening up and to start talking to people.
Now I can usually have a conversation with just about anyone.
I'm also a pro at singing whatever song is NOT currently playing on
the radio as well as changing the station right in the middle of a
song. I'm also super good at overestimating how hungry I am and
either ordering or making way too much food.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
People usually tend to notice my energy and positive attitude. I am
naturally a very energetic person and approach all things with a
lot of enthusiasm. I also make it a point to try and maintain a
positive outlook on things and people usually see that in me.
Physically, people always seem to be drawn to my hair for some
reason. No matter what I do with it, I will almost always have
someone comment on it.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Fairly recently I got a Kindle and I lost it for about half a year
so I've actually read very little in recent time. I was a huge
reader when I was young and my all time favorite book would have to
be The Giver. It is what got me into reading in the first place. I
love a lot of the standards like Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings,
and such. The most recent series that has struck my fancy is the
Gentleman Bastards series by Scott Lynch.
I don't generally stick to any one genre of films, usually just
whatever looks good at the time. But my favorites all come from
Studio Ghibli, with Spirited Away holding the number one spot in my
I mostly only watch TV through Netflix. The only shows I'm making
an effort to follow right now are Walking Dead, Doctor Who, and How
to get away with Murder. I also enjoy some comedies and sitcoms
like Family Guy and It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia.
Like most people, I enjoy a pretty broad range of music. I love pop
to showtunes to country. I'm really into punk and pop punk, though,
and I love Spotify for constantly feeding me new artists. I have
found some of my favorite bands through there, such as Marianas
Trench, Junior Doctor, and Teen Hearts. I'm also a huge fan of
YouTube artists like Sam Tsui, Alex Goot, and Max Schneider.
I really do enjoy trying new foods, but I am an ovo-lacto
vegetarian and will only try foods I know are meat-free. New
restaurants and new dishes are always exciting and I'm usually
pretty good at being able to find something meat-free so I tell
people not to worry when we go out to eat.
As for games, I tend to prefer RPG's and the amazing stories and
characters that come with them. I also enjoy adventure/exploration
games and platformers. I've recently started to get into shooters
thanks to Bioshock. Generally, as long as it's fun, I can enjoy
most games. Some titles/series of note are Tales of Symphonia,
Guild Wars, Final Fantasy, Star Ocean, and my all-time favorite
game, The Legend of Dragoon (1,000,000 points to anyone familiar
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Bonus #7: Coffee
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What I want to do with my future, both short term and long. I spend
a lot of timing trying to plan out what I want to do when over the
next couple days, though things usually never go according to how I
plan. I also like to think long term and set goals for myself down
Lately, I've been thinking specifically about the things I want to
be different in my life and how I'm gonna change those things. In
particular, I'd like to figure out how to go back to school!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I often work on Friday nights, but if I'm not stuck at work then
I'll probably be hitting up all my friends and seeing who wants to
hang out. Occasionally I like to go out and enjoy a few drinks and
karaoke with friends. Usually though we'll just end up hanging out
at someone's place and chilling. If everyone's busy, I'll usually
spend my Friday night playing a game, watching Netflix, or reading.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am terrible with names and faces. And I know most people will say
that. I am quite possibly the worst at remembering names and faces
though. I can literally meet someone five times and still not
recognize them. I have trouble picking out my extended family in
group photos. I don't know if my brain is just missing the part
responsible for remembering this info, but it's a true struggle.

Honestly what I probably need more than anything right now is just
some more friends, someone to hang out with now and then. So if you
think we'd get along, feel free to start a conversation.
