Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Tall, quiet (In big groups) greater listener. I believe listening
and asking questions is the best way to get to know someone whether
or not they are a potential mate or just someone you've met on the
A big part of my personal philosophy is to treat people as I would
like to be treated in any given situation. It is only fair.
I consider myself a cynical optimist or optimistic cynic. What that
means is that I recognize that there are a lot things wrong in the
world, but at the same time, I like to work through the bad along
with the good.
That can come across as being lay-back to a fault, but its always
surprising when I find the things that are present, that I didn't
notice them before. Every time I think I've found that last piece
of the puzzle called "Self", I find there's a whole different
section to complete
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
In many ways I could say I am successful because I have a job and I
am in good health and I am maintaining that. But beyond maintenance
of the status quo, I am still searching for answers.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Knowing a little bit about everything (And yet knowing nothing at
all). Remaining inquisitive, keeps the mind fresh and I love
learning new trivia.
I am also good at getting things off of high shelves and having
people mistake me as an employee in every store I've ever been in.
(Whats wrong with wearing a lanyard? Though I'm beginning to
realize the impractical nature of having a bajillion knick knacks
and crap hang off you neck. It gets stowed in my pocket more often
than not now.)
On another note, I'm really good at looking at multiple sides of an
argument. Though I must admit playing devils advocate with yourself
can be kind of odd. I will rectify that by meeting more people.
Ooooh sounds like a New Years resolution.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Phenotypically I am just as profile says I am. Tall, of African
descent, other than that I would say quiet but not not exactly what
you would call shy.
I am not fearful of conversation and I'm generally willing to talk
about just about anything with the ability to make references to
Beyond that, I'm not sure what else would be noticeable without
further investigation. The combination of the quiet and the tall
give of a initial sense of aloofness that many aren't willing to
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
My favorite books are Thrillers and Sci Fi/Fantasy. When those
genres are combined, it is all the better. In terms of movies I
enjoy action films, thrillers, and romantic comedies. My favorite
television shows fall into those categories as well. I like crime
drama's like the various Law and Orders (SVU is the best of the
lot), NCIS, Criminal Minds. In terms of music I like a bit of
everything but I tend to listen to mainly Alternative Rock,
R&B, and hip hop. I don't have a favorite food, but I'm always
willing to try something new.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
The Internet (I can go without it, but it feels awkward.)
Companionship (Talking to a volley ball on a desert island doesn't
sound like a good time.)
Thought provoking conversation (Maybe I should give that volley
ball another chance, sometimes people hurt my brain.)
Good Food (I'll try anything once. Who knows whats good, but I'm
willing to find out)
My Family ( They annoy me to no end but their mine)
Music ( Thankfully music is everywhere)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Why the world is the way it is. Many things can be answered through
research and while enjoyable, that only seems be part of the
puzzle. Religion is another avenue, but that brings up another many
questions. Balancing cynicism for the present with optimism for the
future are big parts of the same coin.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Counting it as already being Saturday Morning without all the
cartoons. Its usually free so I'm game for just about anything.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't have it all together yet. I know shocking right? Honestly I
don't have a lot I keep private because generally people don't ask.
If you want to know something about me, go ahead. You'll likely
have it answered. That's more interesting than asking about weather
or how a day went.
You should message me if
