Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My name is Mike, making bad decisions since 1985! My favorites
include just about anything outside, vinyl records, IPA's, good
bourbon, live music, and the occasional cigar.
So what brings me to online dating? I'm a real old school kind of
guy. I can't stand reality TV, I approach people I'm interested in
talking to, and I don't have or want a smartphone. I like spending
time with the people in my company without being distracted by all
the digital nonsense crammed into most people's back pockets.
Believe it or not it's hard to find a nice girl on the street these
days who can get down with that!
A few other things I like:
Going out for food and drinks socially and having a laugh with good
Being outside when the weather is nice. I never say no to a day
trip down the shore. I love the beach and the lifestyle that
Spending evenings or rainy days in listening to records while
drinking some wine or sipping some whiskey.
Cycling the Schuylkill River Trail on my totally awesome recumbent
Walking or riding a bike through the city.
A great date for me can be as simple as an afternoon in the park
getting to know you, but we can also grab a beer or coffee and see
how we get along.
My work schedule is a little unorthodox, but I actually like it a
lot. It gives me a lot of variety, but some people can't handle it.
It goes a little something like this:
I work on call around the clock on a 2 hour call window, which
means I have to report to work 2 hours after I get a call. I have
two days off each week that I don't have to worry about being
called, and they rotate from week to week. For example, this week I
may be off Friday and Saturday, and next week I will have off
Saturday and Sunday, then the week after that I'm off Sunday and
Monday, and so on. Some weeks I may be called all 5 days, and some
weeks I may only be called for 3 of my 5 days. If you can figure
out how this continues congrats you're smart enough to pick up
pattern recognition and we might stand a chance!
