I'd really love to share my idiosyncratic activities and values
with someone special.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm good with animals, and I can hold my own in any social
setting:) I also cook well, and I have a business mind yet am very

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
