Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
CHOOSE YOUR OWN ADVENTURE:
"Never trust a knight in shinning armor. A true knight's armor
should never be shinning. His exterior never primped, never
polished, never void of defect. It should not look new as if it's
just been bought or never dawned and just removed from a coveted
hiding place. His worth not gauged by the metal it's made from, but
the integrity for which it still holds together. His strength
should not be measured by his physical prowess, but the opposition
he has encountered and the will with which he has maintained the
struggle against overwhelming odds. He should not strive towards
you boastful of lack of fear.. That is the song of the fool. His
courage should be measured not by his absence of fear, but his
ability to accept and triumph over it. His gallantry should not be
the results of a silver tongue, but seen in his scars and the
weight he bares every moment he stands on his feet for his actions
should speak louder than any word... Trust of the innocent is the
liar's sharpest sword. A true knight will never expect it... He'll
fight to earn it with is his strength, his courage and his
gallantry and recover from any strikes he takes in the process. For
him, to earn it makes it all the more important and worth fighting
to keep than something that's ever just given..."
It's (Friday)(Saturday) night. You've had a trying (day)(week) at
work and you're headed to a bar to (meet a friend)(dance)(have some
drinks)(fill in your own answer). You're decked out in clothes you
feel most comfortable for whatever intentions you had for the
evening. You waltz through the entry way and you're heated by the
music from the jukebox. Neon lights or large TVs toy with your eyes
as the rest of the bar is shrouded by dim, poorly lit lights.
Chatter from the bar patrons becomes white noise as your ears
adjust to your surroundings. You scan the bar, stool by stool, and
at the end or in a corner you see a gentlemen sitting alone: still
young, but aged with experience; average build; dawned in jeans and
black. It could be -13 degrees, but still he's in short, rolled up
sleeves with his toned arms like two stone props; long beard
brushing the top of the bar; wearing a hat with the brim so close
to his glasses you can barely make out his stare that seems to be
focused miles away as he swirls his rum and coke. The spell that
plagued his focus breaks just for a moment and he turns exactly at
the right time to lock eyes with you. So he smiles and nods to
defeat any awkwardness that could occur from actually making eye
contact with another human being of the opposite sex...
To walk up to the stool next to the man sitting in the corner to
have it him pull it out for you to sit on. Sit down as he asks the
bartender to pour your favorite drink and begin to have a
conversation about your story with a complete stranger; no
expectations of leaving the bar together; no promises of a second
meeting; just a chance to be given a stage, a microphone, and a
pair of ears who would loved to hear where you came from and who
you truly are. Click "Send a message"

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Ask me. I'd be just as happy to share my story as much as hear
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
This question is rather subjective. Depends on whose judging my
life up to this point.
I like to think there's a number of things I'm good at. Mainly
things that allow my creative juices to flow, which could be
anything from artwork to cooking.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm short for a guy...
I have forearms that rival Pop-eyes...
I shave my head...
I'm always wearing some type of black shirt...
I have small ears apparently.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Anything by R. A. Salvatore and the Forgotten Realm books, Anything
by J.R.R. Tolkien, The early Redwall series books by Brian Jacques,
World War Z, The Tao of Pooh, and A Song of Fire and Ice Series
just to name a few.
This would be a long list so I'll say I enjoy anything, but horror
films. Unless, it's B rated horror films that you can sit and laugh
Cartoons: Retro Cartoons (Anything from LooneyToons to Space Ghost:
Coast to Coast to Doug.) Venture Brothers, Family Guy, Futurama,
Live Action: Scrubs, House, How I Met Your Mother, American
Pickers, Game of Thrones, Glee, The Big Bang Theory.
Anime: Ai Yori Aoshi series, Gatari Series, Chobits, Clannad, Elfen
Lied, Ghost in the Shell, Kanon, New Dominion Tank Police, Record
of Lodoss War, Shuffle!, School Days and Venus Wars.
I'm as eclectic with music as I am movies. It all depends on my
mood and the setting. It may have been a hard day at work and I
wanna come home and relax so I'll put on some instrumental piano
music. I may be pumping up for a hockey game and throw on some
alternative/metal. I may be driving around on a nice day with the
windows down and through in some "top 40" from any generation
(1950-2010s). Could be sitting outside grilling and enjoying a
drink and put on some Frank. It all depends. I can tell you there
are some things I don't really get/enjoy. There's a lot of Rap I
just can't get into, "Dubstep" is bewildering and screamer metal
where it's just some angry white kids yelling at the top of their
I'll try anything once. What I don't particularly care for is food
that's made to replace/taste like other food. For instance: tofu.
Don't particularly care for it. Turkey bacon? Why not just have
regular bacon? Likewise, I tend to steer clear of imitation meals
as much as possible. Only thing I might cook in my microwave is to
heat/steam vegetables. With that said, anything else is fair game,
doesn't matter the ethnicity or how weird it my be.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Other than the essentials of life: food, water, shelter,
A steady paycheck, an automobile, my creative side, a little
imagination, logic, purpose...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I'm all about letting people into the inner workings that is my
mind. I just don't know if I want to post it for a first
impression. I'm an over thinker, and at times it's actually hard
for me quiet my mind. If you're interested, just ask.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I work retail... Friday night has no greater significance than a
Tuesday or a Sunday night. I'm either working, engaging in one of
my hobbies, or spending time with my brothers or my friends, much
like any other human being over the age of 21.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
A question worth asking is a question worth answering... but there
are times when the truth is not what one person deserves and some
things are best left unsaid...
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you can actually open up and talk about your about yourself. I
understand the importance of physical attraction, I really do, but
all the icing on the outside means nothing to me if the cake on the
inside is rotten, poorly baked, etc...
If you can describe yourself without using the phrases:
"I like to have fun...", (don't broad-brush, what exactly is fun
"I love to party..." (I love to breathe???)
"I live my life to the fullest..." (not gonna touch this one right
any fake adjective that adds "icious" to it (self-explanatory)
