Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi, I'm Jared. I'm an Engineer by day, but can be pretty
"right-brained" by night. I like to pretend I'm an artist and
I live every day with excitement and joy. You know why? I'm
excited, that's why. I'm excited for the wonder and possibility of
the future. My life has only become better as I age. From the
moment I wake up, I feel this excitement. This potential. During my
morning drive, I listen to music that inspires me, and I feel it
there. I get to work and enjoy my first meal of the day, typically
greek yogurt with fruit and granola, and I feel it there, too. I
take pleasure in this. I take pleasure in the meetings at my job,
that sometimes simultaneously stress me out. But it's a good
stress, because I know I am being challenged. I am inspired working
with intelligent people and doing something that makes a difference
in the quality of people's lives. I'm inspired and excited when I
am scared, too - scared of a new assignment or challenge that I
have no idea how I am going begin, or how I will accomplish it. But
I always do. I feel the same way when I get home and work out after
a long day. It hurts, but it's worth the pain. Anything worthwhile
usually contains an aspect of pain.
Now, I'm not all high on life without any of the downsides. I have
my moments of doubt, fear, exhaustion, hopelessness. These things
only fuel the fire that keeps me going, however. I believe
successful people do things that unsuccessful people don't want to
do. So that's why I take pride in hard work, and "feeling the pain"
of challenge. I've found more joy than I ever thought possible in
doing the things I sometimes avoided doing in my youth.
I'm looking for someone who is intelligent, caring, trustworthy,
motivated, and has a soft/sweet side to them. I am sort of old
fashioned in that I am looking for a genuine lady that I can be a
gentlemen with. I also like to have fun and someone who has a silly
side to them is always a plus!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am currently employed as a Civil Engineer for Sacramento County.
I love my job, but it's not the only thing I am good at or have a
passion for. I have so many hobbies and wish I had more time to
give to them all. I feel like I could spend a thousand lifetimes
exploring and learning, which is something I love to do. I have a
great passion for knowledge and for experiencing as much as I can.
Currently, I love creating things with my hands, especially
art-related such as painting, sculpture, drawing, and hard-surface
modeling. I also love to sing and play guitar, mostly for fun but
I've performed on stage every now and then.
I enjoy taking up new hobbies and exposing myself to as much of
life as possible while trying to soak it up like a sponge. When
given two paths to choose/follow, I typically take the road less
traveled. I seek the promise of something greater, the vision of
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Art, painting, drawing, singing, engineering, creating stuff,
basketball, teasing people, performing, presenting,
prestidigitation, breaking stuff to see how it works then failing
to put it back together, being serious when I need to be but being
a slight goofball the rest of the time, and eating.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I suppose it's that I'm tall, bearded, white, with blue eyes.

will let me be their gentleman. I am sort of old fashioned that
way. My ideal partner will be a lady in return, with a touch of
