Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
[update] - I'm now seeing someone I met offline... this site didn't
directly help, but it made me take more chances in "real life", so
for that, I'm thankful. For those of you looking for someone
special: just... keep.... trying... and don't ever give up. It will
happen for you. I know it!
[I just re-read my profile for the first time in months... and wow,
do I sound boring! I'm not changing any of it though, and I doubt
this will help, but here's a few bonus tidbits I'd like to
1) One of the secrets to life I've discovered: Have a high quality
condiment collection in your fridge.
2) I often question the leaps in logic that Netflix tries to
present to me based on my viewing habits. Just because I watched
"Trading Places" doesn't mean you have to perma-suggest "A Fish
Called Wanda" to me for the rest of my life.
3) I always feel simultaneously sad AND happy that my cat shows
unconditional affection to me every time I come home. I never
wanted to be the 'bachelor with a cat' guy, but that's where I'm
at. Now lets fix this situation!]
I haven't dated much... I'm more of a reserved person when it comes
to meeting girls, but I want to change that. I've been single for 2
years now. Not having someone to take to a new restaurant, a
festival, or the State Fair, or a museum, or a concert has been
awful. I love to cook, and not having someone to share my passion
for food with has also been awful!
I am open to just about anything. I never thought I'd like
horse-back riding, but after trying it this Summer... I really
I like tv and movies and video games, but I'm certainly not
addicted to any of them. I'm perfectly comfortable not turning the
tv on for days at a time. I enjoy many different types of music,
from rock, to folk, to classical, to house/dance music... just
don't expect me to really get into country music. I believe in
"everything in moderation" and not letting things get you down.
Humor is important to me, and I love to laugh at just about
everything. I enjoy laughing at unintentionally bad movies. I
believe there's value in dark humor, if it's smart, and makes you
think too. I also like sharing silly moments. If you enjoy "The
Onion", I think we'd get along just fine! :)
I played soccer for 20 years, and love to run as long as my ipod is
fully stocked with podcasts or music that keeps me pumped. I don't
believe in arguing or getting mad. Anger is a useless emotion and
solves nothing. Plus, life is too short, and time is too precious
to spend it being negative.
I'm a big fan of the arts. Art is everywhere if you're paying
attention. I really enjoy the Opera (I don't think people realize
what an incredible opera company that Syracuse has), and going to
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
In the Summer I like to Golf, go biking, and run outdoors. Right
now, I spend my free time visiting with family, searching for new
music/podcasts for the ipod, and rooting for Syracuse Basketball.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I love to cook, but being single gives me no one to cook for... :(
I've been told that I'm a good listener, and I think I'm above
average at "bar sports" like darts, pool and the occasional game of
beer pong. (eh, who am I kidding, I've won a beer pong tournament

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
...what I can get at Wegmans. That place is like a toy store to me!
I like going there with no clue of what to eat for dinner, and
coming up with something there on the spot. The last time I did
that, I ended up making grilled balsamic glazed portobello mushroom
sandwiches with gorgonzola cheese. Hmm... I'm getting hungry now.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
... usually looking for someone to share a drink with after a long
week at work. Although I'm perfectly comfortable just staying in
and firing up the DVR or Netflix. I hate feeling like I'm wasting a
weekend though, so if I don't do something Friday night I'm trying
to figure out something to do on Saturday.

clothes so I don't look goofy.
