Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I like to chill, take it easy, and b.s. when I can. However,
mankind has to work and take time doing other things in this
I'm one of those dudes with a humanities background who's chillin'
in the corporate office environment, and is quite satisfied...for
now. I'm thankful for what I have. It's not the sexiest job but I
make it as hip as I can, I guess.
I'm socially and fiscally conservative and traditional, politically
as well as personally, but not excessively so. I mean no offense,
but I may not be compatible with, say, an atheistic communist to
use an extreme example. I must point out there are major flaws in
the Okcupid political test. All the other ones I've taken point me
in the conservative direction. This one didn't even ask about the
big issues of today.
That said, I'm pretty relaxed, or at least I aspire to be so. I try
to live the Christian way and all that but I still chill; I don't
get all prudish or offended whatever when someone cracks a joke,
unless it really is bad.
One of my recent ventures is to learn how to be a firefighter.
We'll see how the ball bounces with that. We'll see if I can cut
Weight: 177.5 lbs
Hair: Brown, short-medium length, with beard
Known Aliases: None
Frequented locations and modi operandi: The gym, the grocery store,
the town church, the town honky-tonk, the town dive, cutting grass
in summer, shoveling snow in winter.
If I think of more things to mention, I'll be back. Folks who have
assumed I was just one of the guys found that there's some depth to
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I have a job, and in this economy I'm thankful I have one,
especially someone with an m.a. in the humanities.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Listening and giving advice, so I'd like to think. But everyone
says that on their profiles.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My beard. Very Chuck Norris-esque. I hope to be the next Dos Equis
guy one day.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I could go on, but I think it suffices to say some would classify
me as a nerd. I like history a lot.
Of what's relative today, I'm a fan of True Detective, Breaking
Bad, Hell on Wheels, and Black Sails. Those shows are bad-ass.
Better Call Saul's a Good'n, too. True Detective doesn't even seem
like a detective show. It's so far out there, Man.
Let me say for things that are poppy and 'in', I usually have no
interest. Fifty Shades of Grey, the Hunger Games, forget that shit.
I stick to the good stuff. Every once and a while I read a classic.
As far as 'fantasy' goes, I like the old fantasy. Star Wars is
still the best Space Fantasy. Tolkien and pre-Tolkien and
post-Tolkien was probably the high-point of the genre. Harry Potter
is lame. The stuff they're comin' out with today, Man, is just
I try to read a lot about Western Mythology.
Favourite foods, the simpler the better, I say. We can't have too
many flavours blendin' together.
Music, I'm no connoisseur, but I enjoy the Doors, Queen (especially
early Queen)--I'd have to say those two are my primaries. I also
don't mind some good old-time diddies from time to time.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My hobbies such as reading and writing, whatever they're talkin'
about on the news, what's going on at work, etc. etc, what I should
do next, that kind of thing. Nothing overly profound or uncommon.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Well Thrs. night begins my weekend, so that's not a fair question.
That said, I prefer to hang around, bullshit, kick back a few brews
without getting ridiculous and I usually get around to doing that
once a week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't like team sports. Baseball I can tolerate. It's not as
hyped up as the other sports and it has a nice pace to it that
matches the demeanor of the game. Football, I tried to get into
several times but I just couldn't. I'll come over to someone's
place and watch the game; why not? But I could never follow it. The
scandals don't help either. That may seem to be a silly thing to
admit, but I live in the environs of Pittsburgh, and my office is
downtown. It's civic religion to a huge segment of the population.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
--you don't start trouble. I don't mean trouble like some kind of
criminal activity or whatever--well yeah, that too--but more so
drama. Why do folks these days have to be so argumentative? Message
me if you just want to kick back and chill or if you just want to
say hello online.
If I may add an addendum, do consider this article, Ladies. I don't
consider these guidelines absolute, and I am partial to longer
profiles than shorter ones, but check this out:
