Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
How does one go about selling themselves online? Good question and
tough task, but I'm willing to take a whack at it...
For starters, I'm employed. Gainfully. I mention that because I
have heard women like a man who doesn't have to panhandle for date
money. Now that we've got that big thing out of the way, a bit more
I am a pretty normal guy looking for a normal gal. I'm really just
looking to find someone who I can not only get along with, but who
also makes me a better person.
The woman I'd like to be with has a lot of fun getting all dressed
up and going out OR vegging out for a night watching movies. She's
kind to strangers and her family, but knows how to stick up for
herself and what she believes in. She's funny, sarcastic, caring,
adventurous, compassionate, and likes me for me. Oh and she's
whip-smart. Brains count. An awful darn lot.
For a literary reference about the impact the right girl should
have, J.D. Salinger wrote a short story titled "A Girl I Knew"
wherein, upon catching glimpse of a girl, the narrator said “She
wasn’t doing a thing that I could see, except standing there
leaning on the balcony railing, holding the universe
If books and literature aren't your referential jam give Ray
LaMontagne's "You are the best thing" a listen...
I am Athletic, Polymathic, and Normal
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I worked in public health for 10 years directing cancer programs
for the state, but a few years ago made the transition to working
for a major academic medical institution. Last year I took a
position directing clinical research for cardiac surgeons and it's
pretty much the best job ever
When not working I'm an extremely active person and race triathlons
ranging in length from Olympic distance to Ironman. I also run a
few marathons each year and try stay qualified for Boston. Whether
swimming, biking or running I am all about keeping moving.
When not training or racing I'm all about getting out and
experiencing life. Whether its hiking, biking, visiting the
plethora of museums, eating great food, or slowing it down and
simply hanging out on my back deck overlooking the lake, time is
best spent outside rather than moored to a couch.
Don't get me wrong, though, sometimes the best times are spent
relaxing with good company and preparing a great meal.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Eating. No really, I'm a champion eater, which is why I train so
I also love cooking, especially for people. You name it, I can make
a great meal out of it or whatever you have in your pantry.
That said, I'm good at my job and I like to think I am a good
athlete, but those are pretty small things. In the end I'd like to
be considered a really good person. As poet king Hulk Hogan said
"Brother, in the end we're going to be remembered as good guys or
bad guys so you decide how you want to be remembered." Would you
want to disappoint Hulk Hogan?
