Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I've been a bit of a geek all my life, and love it. I'm a bit of a
stereotypical engineer (run if you see me with power tools!). I
love science and technical articles, and playing with new gadgets.
I love to read, and I like to poke around in the corners of the
science fiction genre for the gems.
Weekends are for outings such as the Renn Fair, science-fiction
convention, outdoor music festivals, or a Lego convention. I
regularly go to a board game night with friends, where I have
discovered via Cards Against Humanity that I am not nearly as
horrible as I thought I was.
Just because I'm a geek doesn't mean I'm not active. I'm pretty
proud of losing over 100 lbs in the last couple years, and I'm 25
lbs away from my target weight. I do enjoy hiking, walking, and
biking, and I'm even starting to do some running with my goal to
run a 5k.
I also happen to be a full-time parent to a wonderful, well-behaved
5-year old boy, and have been for almost his whole life. When it
comes to doing the truly sexy things in life (Cleaning, Cooking,
Caring for a kid), I'm a pro, and do it all myself.
Independence is sexy to me; self-rescuing princesses only please.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working as an engineer for the military and doing the single dad
thing. Trying to find time to go hiking and camping, and sorely
missing the biking and walking trails.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Writing and editing. I seem to be a bit of an oddity where I work,
in that I am the only one who knows how to write well amidst a
group of very technically minded co-workers. One of my pet peeves
is "l33t" speak, as well as a total disregard to the grammatical
conventions of our society. Yes, I am a writing snob.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My beard, followed by my eyes which have no constant color.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Right now I'm exploring the works of some rather obscure writers,
particularly those who reside in the UK. It is hard to find their
works in the US, so I frequently find myself ordering them online
I'm a Netflix addict, and right now my tastes have wandered across
the pond to the UK. Lately, I cannot seem to get enough of BBC
shows (e.g. Dr. Who, Torchwood, Being Human, Orphan Black).
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A constant breeze
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Ideas for short stories and other creative projects.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
- music festivals
- going out with friends
- curling up with Netflix and popcorn
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're willing to take it slow and cautious, and are looking for
someone to hang out with and have a good time. While I'm looking
for a relationship, I'm not rushing in to anything. Friends first
is a good start..
If you do take the time to send me a message, thanks! But please,
introduce yourself and maybe share a few details. Something besides
"'sup", "hi", and "hey". This lets me know I'm talking to a real
live interesting person, and not a robot.
