Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
“Meet me at the Kasbah” is a theme I strive for when on a date. I
value conversation that acts as a meeting point and refuge for
travelers and traders of (and from) diverse direction and
experience. I’ve been single for multiple years now while working
rigorously on my career. During these past years I’ve very much
enjoyed my (little) free time as personal time to explore an area
I’m relatively new to. Nevertheless, I know I can thrive off of
deep, steady companionship, and when possible keep an eye out for
it. I am very practical and serious and value connection in that
way. However, I also realize I want companionship that can offers
playfulness, spontaneity, exploration, creativity, and steady
activity. I have a deep imagination and like to create things with
my hands, but this doesn’t mean they will not be practical and
functional in everyday life.
What is the coolest thing I have ever built?
The coolest thing was a bamboo treehouse (~35ft up in the air) on
an island in the large estuary I grew up on. It was environmentally
conscious because the construction method did not use any nails to
penetrate the tree. In this way the construction method did not
compromise the trees health or safety and integrity of the branches
that supported it. Also the bamboo is quickly replenished after
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Exploring capabilities, talents and the world
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I tend to get along very well with all age groups from very young
kids to the elderly. I am very much an animal lover and
consistently wish I could have the right situation for dog. I am
not exclusive to any degree and have not found adherence to a
specific type of people or groups - “runners” “surfers” “divers”
“cyclists” ect. I would find these boundaries too constraining. I
very much value a transitional nature to social interaction. In a
given social situation I may often tend to integrate anyone who
appears to be excluded. In the past I have often connected well
with other ethnic groups or foreign people.
I am a good communicator - genuine, sincere and straight forward.
Although I engage some very extreme activities I've never broken a
bone. I have never broke a tooth and I have never had a cavity. I
chipped a tooth on a fork once. I don't have any tattoos. I have
recently taken up acro yoga and I find establishing trust,
cooperation and friendliness towards fellow humans (strangers) or a
regular social body under a broader context of fun and playfulness
is compelling and healthy. I’m a solid swimmer and enjoy
water-sports most often, including: body-surfing, diving (free
diving or snorkeling and scuba) and on occasion spearfishing. I
also really enjoy beach running.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I get complements on my thick hair, eyes, smile and skin.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
The past few years of grad school and a draw to be outdoors
regularly has kept me from reading much for pleasure. I have
trouble defining favorites of anything - books songs, places, ect.
As far as categories of movies, I usually dig documentaries, true
stories, and some action movies. Foreign films are usually good. I
like a diversity of music including: Oldies, Soul Motown,
Bluegrass, Jazz, Ethnic and World music, Classic rock, Alternative,
Gen X, Indie.
