Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm originally from Southeast Missouri and have lived in Alabama
for a little over three years now. Despite being from the area, I
don't know a lot of people (ergo the online dating). I'm also
starting a new job, so everything is unsteady right now.
I'm a fun loving person, and I value quality time with my friends
and family more than anything. I love to laugh and even more so to
make people laugh. Most people would describe me as an
intellectual. I read extensively. I love classic movies. I'm
extremely eclectic with music. I love spending time outside doing
things like hiking.
My faith is extremely important to me. I am Christian and my
relationship with God is always the most important thing in my
life. I am looking for a church right now. It's important to me
that the person I'm with shares my beliefs and values.
I'm looking for a intelligent woman who has a good sense of humor.
Kindness, loyalty, and honesty are very attractive qualities in a
woman. I view myself as a gentleman, so I'm looking for a lady. If
you want to know more, feel free to ask.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I was recently employed to work at a nonprofit based out of St.
Louis. My work is primarily in the Leadbelt/Mineral Area, but I
spend some time in St. Louis and Cape Girardeau as well.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
When it comes to personal things, I'm good at listening,
empathizing, and not being judgmental.
When it comes to skills, I'm good at singing, rifle shooting (I'm a
little out of practice, though.), and trivia.
When it comes to work, I'm good at connecting concepts, doing
biochemical assays, and interpreting data.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I would say that people usually notice my intellect first. Not
exactly a physical trait or characteristic, but it's the impression
that strikes first.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I read almost anything. I'm really into historical adventure
books like the Horatio Hornblower series and the Sharpe series. I
enjoy classic science fiction and fantasy with a little off beat
newer stuff thrown in. For example, I still love the Chronicles of
Narnia, The Lord of the Rings, and A Canticle for Leibowitz, but I
do enjoy Jim Butcher's Dresden Files series. My favorite books
however are To Kill a Mockingbird and The Adventures of Huckleberry
Finn. I do enjoy reading the classics.
Movies: Three words. Classic. Film. Buff. I love anything made
before 1970 (almost). Among these are Mr. Smith Goes to Washington,
Arsenic and Old Lace, and The Lion in Winter. As far as most
post-1970s movies go, I'm a quirky, off-the-beaten-path kind of
guy. The Princess Bride, O Brother Where Art Thou, and Burn After
Reading are favorites of mine. I do enjoy big blockbusters like
most people, though.
TV: I don't watch much because I don't have a lot of time. The Big
Bang Theory is about the only one that I keep up with. Oh, and
Downton Abbey and Sherlock.
Music: Extremely eclectic. I don't listen to a lot of R&B, but
otherwise, I'm pretty diverse. Classic rock, a little Reggae
(Matisyahu primarily), Singer/Songwriter/Indy/Folk/World, Light
Jazz, Big Band and Swing, and Classical (including the occasionaly
Food: I am an omnivore. I will try almost anything once. There's
probably not a single fruit that I haven't liked. I enjoy most root
vegetables. I'm picky about my greens (they have to be high
quality). I'm a cheese snob. I don't drink very often at all, but I
have found wines and whiskeys that I enjoy in moderation and the
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. The grace of God
2. Warm blankets
3. Dry socks
4. The smell after rain
5. The stars
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to meet new people and broaden my social and professional
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
There's no such thing as a typical Friday night. I might be at
home, out having dinner with friends, going to a movie, or enjoying
a good book. You name it; I've probably done it.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm a man of mystery. You will have to ask.
