Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
For starters... I'm not all that good at describing myself. Even if
I can... it might not come out quite the way I'd like it too. Kinda
like "It sounded good in my head... but when I said it, it wasn't
quite what I was trying to say, lol."
Secondly I'm a bit old fashioned.
I love my volunteer work. I love being a part of the community, and
helping the people within it. Part of my job is educating children
on fire safety.
I'm a sucker for cats.
Strays tend to find me for one reason or another.
Perhaps the biggest thing is... I'm not one to reveal all my
secrets at once. Granted I am a fairly open person, but it takes a
while before anyone will see who I am. The best way to get the
nitty gritty on me, is to drop me a line and learn through
conversation. I don't put a great deal of stock in the questions
that are asked here as many of them are a little too black and
white, and don't always allow for the grey areas.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I take whatever training I can get from my fire department, to add
to my growing list of certifications.
I've been tinkering with photography and carpentry. Perhaps making
one or both a vocation.
I especially love working with wood, and I'm picking up speed to be
good at it, and make something of it.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Striking up a conversation with a total stranger.
I feel that I am satisfactory with what I do. I prefer to be humble
in my thoughts of myself.
To some degree or another, I am able to approach a new skill and
learn it. I am a decent problem solver. I'm not too bad of a
carpenter. I'm good at what I do as a firefighter.
I have a decent understanding of physics, and am also a problem
solver in a physical sense.

The first thing people notice about me... probably that I'm humble.
I'm not one to draw attention to myself. If I make a loud noise, I
look around to see if anyone noticed, lol.
People notice that I am a man of my word. I would imagine that
people notice my generosity, and my gentlemanly behavior. That I
often times place the welfare of others before that of my
Another thing some people notice... my natural sense of
I'm sure people notice my colorful sense of humor as well.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I tend to lean toward informational, and historical works. I'll
watch most any movie, listen to most any genre, and I'm not a picky
eater by any stretch of the imagination... I draw the line at bugs,
and raw eggs of any kind... this definitely includes caviar.
I like to read from Popular Science/Mechanics/Woodworking. I like
to watch documentaries, and action movies/shows. Likewise I'm sure
it's stereotypical that I like to watch Chicago Fire.
I like to watch the History/Discovery channels.
Big Brain Theory
I like most music. But since joining the fire department I've
developed an interest in Country music.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
and this is in no particular order
1). Fresh air.
2). my cats.
3). friends and family.
4). The fire department.
5). Dark Chocolate.
6). A roof over my head.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Ways to simplify and organize my life.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Typically I'm home on Friday nights, or hanging out at a friends
house having a drink or two. And yes... I'm always sober when I
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I need to focus more on exercise and a healthy diet.
