Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
What am I looking for? Well, not exactly sure. In the end, I want a
relationship, but I don't think that searching for a relationship
works. I think that one finds someone worth getting to know and see
where things go. In any case, I just want to date and see where
I am real, straight forward, honest. I am picky.
I seem to have a song lyric in my head for everything but the
chances of me being able to sing it for you to identify are slim. I
What do I want? Intelligence! Tall, rich and handsome are good too
but not necessary. Well, tall is kind of important.
Me: I like to play outside - boats, beach, hiking, canoeing,
walking around town even when I should probably get a taxi but I
prefer the walk.., camping, finding festivals and parades - and
also go to museums, plays, concerts, eating at hole in the wall
type places.. the list goes on!
Have you noticed how when you get out of college and haven't gone
on any trips recent photos are limited? I tried to find a few

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am starting a new job and pretty excited about the possibilities.
I do hope that more will come from it than just the job description
but if not at least it seems like a relaxing change from being a
lab tech in a building full of bored gossips.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Reviving sad looking plants.
Remembering useless facts.
Laughing at myself.
Forgetting what point I was trying to make halfway through.
Figuring out new ways to solve problems
I sure hope I am good at wine making. I started trying this spring
and it takes a long time and more patience than I naturally have.
Hopefully it will be great.
Update, lots of shitty wine. One excellent batch. Great beer. But I
feel like the beer is cheating. I didn't grow or puck anything for

I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't know. I cannot remember the first thing I noticed about me.

Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Atlas Shrugged, Clan of the Cave Bear, The Lorax, Dune
Currently - The Mind's Eye by Oliver Sacks
After research papers and trade journals I normally read fiction,
often science fiction. But I love Oliver Sacks and am going out of
character. And Civilwarland in Bad Decline.
I used to read constantly but since grad school have not been as
much of a reader. Getting back into the habit.
Movies: Jeremiah Johnson, The Princess Bride, Breakfast at
Tiffany's, Boondock Saints.
Music: Classic Rock, Top 40 of the 90's, Bluegrass, Old country(but
NOT country pop), some gospel, a bit of Indie Rock.
I avoid TV. Mostly by choice. My current apartment has WiFi but is
not wired for cable or whatever they have upstairs and has been so
long since I have had cable that I don't miss it. When I do watch
TV it is typically Jeopardy, NCIS, The Big Bang Theory, or
something on the History Channel. I recently considered getting a
Roku or however you spell it but realized that I really didn't
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Family and the friends that might as well be family.
Books- real ones, not electronic ones. It seems like the majority
of worldly possessions are books. Makes for fun moving but I don't
overload big boxes.
Time outside. I like taking walks by myself as a sort of
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
And how I would rather have Click and Clack on my voicemail than
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'd probably admit too much as opposed to too little. Not online
though. What if I run for public office or something one day?
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
A friend told me that I talk about 'smart things' too much. I asked
her that - assuming it is true - how would I stop? And what exactly
are 'smart things'? She said I couldn't. So if you don't mind that
it is a good start at least.
I am looking for a more long term relationship than I used to but
don't want to go into a date analyzing whether or not it is a long
term thing. A little fun and meeting new people is good too. But if
it was long term I want someone who has a job, car, valid drivers
license, probably at least a BS degree even though degrees are not
everything. At the same time someone who can use post hole diggers.
Lord! I was teaching a class on soil science today and no one
could. And fix my computer - I can't. And know how to fix a running
toilet - I can. And have heath insurance and retirement savings. I
don't expect anyone to pay my loans but I won't pay anyone
You should probably not message me if our unfortunate genetic line
up made you several inches shorter than me because I am weird, not
your fault. If you have never listened to Car Talk on NPR or heard
of NPR. Or I you cannot say anything about the number 42.
Bonus for Jeremiah Johnson quoting abilities and Princess Bride but
the first is way better.
Newer picture! Not going to lie. Some photos are getting on five
plus years old but I take pictures and therefore are never in them.
Me as Kara Thrace was from this Mardi Gras. Not my best side but
truthful and current.
