Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Latter day renaissance man and world traveler, good at many things,
but the love life has been fleeting. It's self-inflicted -- I
consciously chose to see the world and move around the country
frequently after my undergrad. I've lived in eight other cities
(Denver, Phoenix, Milwaukee, Charleston, Raleigh, Pittsburgh,
Austin and Vegas for a brief, regrettable while).
I open doors and pull out chairs for ladies, which apparently makes
me too nice of a guy. I'm well-educated and well-read, but not a
complete bore, because I tell great jokes and stories.
INTJ on the Myers-Briggs, and Mensa member. The latter was off a
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I troubleshoot and consult. It's hit the point now where I can
enjoy the results of working hard the past few years. I work my own
hours, take about 10 weeks of vacation a year, and don't miss the
corporate, backstabbing politics I had in a previous life.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Fixing and building things, whether it's repairing a cabinet or
building a shed from scratch.

Books - anything out of the Greatest 100. My favorite author is
James Ellroy. Don Quixote is my favorite book.
Movies - I'm up for most things, and enjoy movie trivia. I support
a Constitutional Amendment barring Adam Sandler from making more
Shows - I killed cable five years ago, and never looked back; there
are a few shows I catch on iTunes or Amazon. At the risk of having
my man license revoked, I get really bored sitting and watching an
NFL game (or three) on Sunday.
Music - Blues, jazz, classic rock. I do have a preset for classical
in the car, mostly when I need to decompress.
Food - Japanese, Cuban, Mexican, and French.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Friends and family
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Visiting other countries and seeing new things.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Relaxing and getting ready for the weekend.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I found an error in a display at the Smithsonian a few years ago,
and actually received a thank you from the museum for pointing it
out and providing research.
I also once won a dirty joke contest in the UK with two jokes to
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you have a level head, haven't been subjected to restraining
orders, use correct spelling and grammar, and have ambition in

If you do message, please send something more substantive than "hi,
how are you?"
One minor note - I have no issue with someone with children from a
prior relationship. However if you have no children, but pets that
you refer to as children, please seek psychiatric help immediately.
