Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi there! I promise that I'm not surly, but I love to ride a Surly
It feels strange just spilling paragraphs out into space. I'm much
more an in-person-over-a-beer kind of guy. But here are my
I'm a single dad, with two fantastic kids.
I have a job, it's a pretty good one, and I like it.
I believe in work hard, play hard.
I play kickball in a league. I used to play baseball.
I have a great Rhodesian Ridgeback and I spend about 2 hours a day
hiking in the woods with her.
I'm new to the Albany area, so I'm looking to meet people. Maybe
that could be you. That would be awesome.
I grew up on the East Coast, and I've lived in Colorado,
California, Connecticut, and Pennsylvania. I really like upstate
New York, though, so I think I'll stick here. :)
I co-parent with my ex, who's been my friend for 22 years. She's
gay, I'm not, so our family is one of choice and commitment. This
means it's also very low drama.
I'm the type of guy who does long-term relationships. I'm looking
for someone to join my life with. I like a lot of different types
of women, but women who are smart and ideally into sports really
catch my eye.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm working to help people get solar power on their homes. I get to
help people reduce their carbon footprint and save some money. The
hours can be strange, but it's a great company and a great
When I'm not working, I'm spending time with the kids. I'm lucky
enough to see them every day. It's pretty awesome.
I'm also learning my way around the area, trying to meet people and
find out where all the cool kids hang out.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Talking my way into, and out of, trouble. I'll admit that the mouth
has a tendency to move way faster than the brain.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have no idea what people notice anymore, I'm hoping someone will
tell me so I can put that here. I'd like to think it's my smile,
because I'm almost always smiling. Serious isn't something I can
often pull off, because I try to see the humor in every situation.
Sometimes, I don't try, I just do. Then I find myself giggling for
no reason. Maybe that's what they notice.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
My tastes in literature varies, although lately it's been mostly
textbooks as I'm back in school....again. I do enjoy historical
My favorite movies are comedies, preferably from the golden age of
comedic movies. Blazing Saddles, History of the World, Meaning of
Life, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Rocky Horror.....the list
goes on. But lately, I've not been much of a movie goer, nothing
recently has caught my attention, and I find there is so much more
to life than sitting in a dark room for hours.
I don't watch much tv, although baseball season is upon us soon, so
I'll try to catch my beloved, (and rather disheartening) Mets as
often as time allows. Of course, for 3 weeks in July, I do get
sucked into Le Tour.
Music...I like a little of everything, although I lean towards
, Jump Blues
and a bit of metal thrown
in for sport.
Food, I eat food. I like most foods, and I'll try anything.
Other stuff I'm into:
, the Cubs
(because underdogs need
Shows: Dr Who
Met Your Mother
, Big Bang Theory
, Daily Show
Movies: anything Mel Brooks
, Star Wars
, The Hobbit
, Lord of the Rings
, Field of
Comedians (I am a HUGE stand-up comedy fan!): George Carlin
, Bill Hicks
, Lewis Black
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Coffee, a bike (I have 3), a good book to read, learning, my
family, a quality pair of shoes.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What's next......because I'm always looking forward.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either out or home. Depends if I have the kids or not. But no night
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
At the holidays, my family often goes caroling singing "Walking
Around in Women's Underwear." We're a special group.
Also, I'm terrified of spiders.
