Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
After 15 years in DC, my job finally brought me back to Texas. Went
to DC for work and found a rewarding career. I'm going to try to
make my profile the perfect combination of: information, brevity,
sass, humor, compassion, and sincerity. So here goes.
UPDATE: I'd like to get back to playing tennis if it's ever sunny
in this God forsaken city again. Message me!
I work in communications, make great money, and love my job, but
don't obsess about it. In fact, I try to keep work at work unless
it naturally comes up in conversations.
I have been playing music since I was very small: guitar, drums,
piano, (ukulele?), I'll learn anything. I even DJ'd for several
years and spun in spots from DC to NYC. I still do it for
DISCLAIMER: I have no filter and often say whatever pops into my
head or ask whatever I want to know. Life's too short to be
I like to charm, have good manners, and have never taken a picture
of myself faceless and shirtless in front of a mirror.
Do you need someone who will make you laugh? Well, I'm damn funny.
I have excellent timing with jokes and could teach a class in
self-deprecating humor. I can also tell stories. It's a lost
All pics are recent, except the one of me doing my best William
Jefferson Clinton at the podium. That's a couple years old.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Same thing as everyone else: trying to invent calorie free
Keeping important people out of trouble. I love my career and wake
up thankful that I get to do what I do. It's rewarding and
purposeful. (Now maybe I could find a relationship like
When I'm not working, I'm at the gym, on the field, watching sports
(a bit of a college football fanatic), going out, attending dinner
parties, road tripping, getting stuck in airports, or sitting on a
porch somewhere reading the news
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Seeing things from different angles. Finding humor in most things.
Knowing what I believe. Jeopardy, but only when no one is watching
with me. Using trite fragmented sentences to convey intellectual
prowess. And I'm starting to be a pretty good cook.
Ok, I'm a pretty fantastic cook, which seems to be a deal maker in
a lot of instances. Personally, I do it for me because it's a
cathartic break from the work day. But if you're the beneficiary
someday, consider it a win for you by virtue of a free dating web
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Everyone says "smile and eyes" because if you don't then that means
someone's looking at something other than your face.
After that, I hope they notice my dimples.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Here's what you need to know: I'm smart and I like entertainment. I
read and watch TV and none of it will have any bearing on whether
or not we get along. (Things people don't say: "He's funny, good
looking, and a great kisser, but he doesn't watch 'The Good Wife',
so I'm not sure it's going to work out...")
But if you MUST know........
Books: Mostly nonfiction. History and politics geek.
Movies: anything in which the ending is not predictable in the
first 15 minutes. (could say the same about relationships!)
Music: My iPod is all over the place. Blues. Hip Hop. 80s and 90s.
Disco House. Classic Rock. 70's Funk. Classic Country. If it has a
groove, I'm usually into it.
Food: whatever I'm cooking. I don't bake. Scratch that - I can't
bake. Baking requires measuring and I am too creative (read:
impatient) for that.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
iPhone (loaded with music)
I'm pretty low maintenance so I only need 5.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to do my part. Communication strategies. How to get to Winter
Music Conference this year. Why my plane is delayed. What Nicki
Minaj was thinking. Why it took me so long to get an iPhone (I
wanted to believe in you, Droid).
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Doing something social - which could be watching a game at a bar or
movie night on the couch with you.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
is that I watched every episode of the first season of that Revenge
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
- You're frustrated with guys who have no idea how to act on a
- You like sitting at the bar on a first date
- You're not into beards
- You think a man should act like a man
- You drink good bourbon (or vodka)
- Your clock isn't ticking
- You tell people you're not "judgey," but you know you are and you
you're fine with that because you don't care what people think and,
besides, if they didn't want to be judged they shouldn't have worn
that outfit with those shoes
- You have no filter
- You like southern charm (and think the accent is cute)
Tips for you:
- At least one full body pic. I'm not gonna waste either of our
- This is a dating website, not a blog. Ranting about how you hate
your ex or how gross people message you is not what should happen
here. Treat this like the conversation you'd want to have if the
hot guy at the bar came up and said hi.
- Make your profile somewhat personal. I promise I'll be creative
when I message you (no cut and paste jobs), but you've got to give
me something to work with.
- NEWSFLASH: Guys hate "hey. How r u? ;)" just as much as women
- Because there is so little information in these profiles, typos
matter. Nobody "lets lose" and you don't want guys to "wood" you.
