Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm an old fashioned yet very easy going, highly ambitious and
driven, sarcastic and wry kind of guy who has a tendency to find
the comedic element in any situation. I'm here looking for someone
intelligent, confident, and sarcastic with whom to share some
laughs and who knows, maybe more. I know, I know! How cliche!! But
hey, it's the truth. As the old saying goes, with age comes wisdom
and being true to yourself. I wear my heart on my sleeve and care
deeply and unconditionally about those close to me. I am a true
practitioner of Bill Hicks' motto of life being a choice between
fear and love, which has allowed for me to have a highly curious
and adventurous personality who loves to try new things and enjoys
travelling to new places when I get a chance to learn about
different cultures by interacting with the locals as much as
possible. What else? Oh yeah, I have an unquenchable taste for
learning about anything and everything. I'm also a huge movie buff.
The art of story telling is very fascinating to me and I admire any
story that is detailed and develops the major characters clearly. I
can recite My Cousin Vinny, among other well known 80's films, line
by line! I hope you share this passion as well! You English majors
better not be judging and correcting me: "run on over here, a
little syntax error over there!"
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I take my job very seriously, but myself...not so much! I'm a huge
advocate of individuality, which explains why conformity is not a
quality I possess and after years of working in the engineering
field I came to the realization that I am not a corporate type of
person; so, a few years ago I changed my career path from
engineering to the culinary field and pursued my passion for
cooking and could not have been happier working among the motley
crew of characters that you meet in a kitchen. Let's just say that
there never is a dull moment working in a restaurant, but it makes
it hard to meet someone with whom I can truly connect, which is the
reason I'm here in search of that one person to make me "sing with
rapture, dance like a dervish, and be deliriously happy!"
Wow, this is getting a little heavy!! I blame my tenth grade
English composition teacher, Mr. Jackson, who instilled a sense of
formality in writing!! We need a little bit of levity here! There
once was a man from Nantucket...
