Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'd like to think that I'm pretty fucking awesome, but I have
enough self awareness to know that I'm probably just above-average
I want to meet a guy who isn't intimidated by intelligence,
strength, passion, and (let's face it) weirdness. I would love to
meet a guy who can inspire me, keep up with me, and go on
adventures with me (travel, new restaurants, classes/learning to do
new things, etc.).
Also, and I sadly find this needs to be said: please don't be a
creep. Use a bit of discretion and common sense. Add a dash of
etiquette and a good slathering of reading comprehension (e.g.,
please read to the end of the profile, there's good advice on how
to approach me there).

full of post-it flags and penciled in notes in the margin),

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. My family and friends
2. Modern medical technology (check out the photo of my artificial disc!
3. Music (Nietzsche said "without music life is a mistake" and I
happen to agree)
4. A fully-loaded kitchen (both hardware (sharp knives) and
software (fresh produce and proteins))
5. Buddhism (made me less of a bitch--Thich Nhat Hanh, Tara Brach,
6. The video of this little

Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
...why everyone thinks calling each other bae is cute. It means
poop in Danish apparently....

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Back in 2007 i was trampled during the Flogging Molly set at
ShamrockFest. Because of this i am hesitant about crowds and also
have some lingering back issues. Not the Tylenol and a heating pad
kind but the ice, steroids, and opiates kind. I know this is kinda
serious to mention on OkCupid, but it's something you should know
about me. I'm a fighter and grateful for every good day.
Hopefully this doesnt get in the way of my NFL or PGA career like
it has for Peyton and Tiger.

1. Taller than me
3. You have a full command of the English language (though if it's

4. You have good manners and are a gentleman.
5. You know your 5 most-played songs and you think it'd amuse me to

"Hey, whut up?" -- The sky.
"UR Beautiful" -- Thanks. My dad tells me that too, but he also
tells me how talented, smart, compassionate, wise, and creative I
am as well. Cause dad knows that being beautiful means zip if the
rest of you is ugly.
