Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I have come here to chew bubblegum, and kick ass. And I'm
I prefer a dive bar to a trendy club.
I prefer an intimate gathering to a large crowd.
I sing my own versions of popular canned music that's played at my
workplace to my fellow co-workers.
I'm not an angel, but I try to be compassionate and bring a smile
to an unsuspecting face daily. If I can brighten anyone's day, just
a titch, I feel enriched by that.
I am a comic book nerd, and I had a garbage can lid shield JUST
LIKE the kids at the end of Captain America.
Words to live by: "Men are like steel. When they lose their temper,
they lose their worth."
I am soulful, smartasscastic, and groovy.
I have this lofty ideal of myself as a renaissance guy, albeit in
tshirt and jeans.
That's about it.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
& recording for my own pleasure, whilst honing the
elusive art of songwriting. Taking vocal lessons. Working on being
a better hockey
player. Trying to not make my profile sound so serious. Attempting
to write poetry. Buying "art" that I have no room for on my walls.
Buying books I may not have time to read. Buying movies...well you
get the idea. Working a full time retail management job and a part
time job I truly love, dealing with the greatest sport in the
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making people laugh.
Random gestures of Chivalry.
Not taking advantage of my fellow humans.
Paying attention to the little things.
Making new animal friends.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My sense of the absurd. Maybe my forearm tattoo.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books-Way, way too many to list...I adore most anything Arthurian;
in fact, give me a swashbuckling tale and I'll be amused for hours.
I can read English Romantic poetry all day, and I'll read some to
you if you behave. Don't take me to Half Price Books unless you
have the hours to burn; for that matter, I love nothing more than
browsing an old, musty dusty bookstore.
Movies- Lately I really look for the foreign/independent films.
There's so many little gems out there. I tend to get in a rut
watching horror/sci-fi and fantasy. I love subtitled films, because
foreign films usually aren't formulaic and dumb (I admit though, I
do love a big dumb action movie once in awhile).
I'm pretty taken with South Korean filmmakers at the moment.
Shows: Game of Thrones, Sherlock, Hannibal, Penny Dreadful,
Lancelot Link-Secret Chimp, Castle, Firefly, Sledge Hammer, Whose
Line Is It Anyway
Music- any Rock or Metal, classic or otherwise, though I tolerate,
as well as listen to, many other genres.
Food- Greek food rules. But that's just me, my grandparents came
through Ellis Island from Greece.
Favorite inanimate object: I thought I was over my materialistic
stage, but it appears I am fond, overtly, of my new Reebok hockey
stick; and my Reaper DAW for home recording.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My guitar. My son. Music. Books. Laughter. Hockey. In no particular
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Goats. I'm fascinated with goats. I long to have one as a pet,
because I'm sure it would become my friend and confidant. Goats are
such good listeners.
Girls. I'm fascinated with girls. I long to have one as a pet,
because I'm sure it would become my friend and confidant. It puts
the lotion in the basket...sorry about that. Just wanted to make
sure you were still paying attention.
What I would accomplish if I had magical abilities. Not
accomplishments for the good of mankind necessarily, but things I'd
do to set things right. And faulk things up (insert evil laughter
Letting the Medieval punishment fit the modern crime.
The word "manchild". It kind of bugs me. Call me that if you will,
but I refuse to be "labeled" and put in a box, especially if said
box is being shipped to the Island of Misfit Boys. I have way more
in common with people younger than myself. I'll always be a kid at
heart, but I'm waaaay more responsible than anyone I know. Nana
nana boo boo!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Usually hanging out with friends- enjoying a brew, a movie, a band
or just plain good times. On occasion I stay in and write or
practice musical stuff, and truthfully I enjoy being a hermit
oftimes. Nothing like settling down with a good book...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Ummm...does the goat thing count? Just kidding. I don't mind the
usual "girly" things that might bother the average guy. I don't
mind going clothes shopping with you or such, in fact I enjoy
things like that. I will paint your toes for you, as long as you
don't have hideously ugly peds, like with raptor claws or
something. I grew up in an all-female household, and my respect,
admiration and understanding of the fairer sex is something I'm
proud of. (self edit) Hah! Like I could actually begin to
