Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Retired college swimmer, part-time intellect, part-time traveler,
and full-time gentleman. Born and raised in GA. Currently
rediscovering my love for the south by living in the Midwest.
Spontaneous traveling is my escape when my job allows. Need a
dinner buddy? I've got you covered. Concert for two? Sign me up.
Reliable wedding date? I'm your man.
Disclaimer: I work/live in Ohio, but am not planning on staying
very long. Not cut out for the country life. I must go, the city

Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Currently working in college admissions and prepping for graduate
school (MEd in Higher Ed). A passion for education runs in my

Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Knowing the difference between you're and your. Extra credit: I
also know the difference between their, they're, and there. It

Puns. I enjoy putting my English degree to good use and making
people laugh in the process (or at least groan because my jokes are
Navigating airports: I fly. A lot. I tried to do an estimate of how

Working out/Fitness. You'll find me in the gym or in the pool 5-6
times a week. I'm really wanting to get into yoga, so if you want
to bring me to my first class, I would go! Just let me know, my
schedule is flexible...
...see what I said about puns? I apologize.
The first things people usually notice about me

"Dressing well is a form of good manners." -Tom Ford
Cole Haan and Brooks Brothers are my go-to. GQ helps to guide my
style. I'm big on suits and business casual attire. I'm a city guy
that's not afraid to get dirty. It's just not my first choice of
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I actually enjoy cooking. Hard to believe, I know.
I'm a Great Gatsby kind of guy.
Music: everything from rap to rock to country. I can be convinced
to listen to about anything at least once. This is why I pay
monthly for Spotify. Worth every penny.
Books: I was an English major. Literature concentration. I'm sure
you see where I'm going with this.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Close friends and family
Technology (I could take over the world with my iPhone/iPad)
My car + radar detector
A sense of humor
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to change the world for the better. You know, nothing too
heavy. I also think about how much I miss having access to Sunday
brunch spots. Is it really brunch if you can't order a Bloody Mary
or mimosa? Just curious.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
in a different city exploring with friends (old or new). Or
traveling in general. Or watching all the shows I missed during the
week while lounging in sweatpants. That de-escalated quickly.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Every time I watch an episode of Suits, I start to heavily
reconsider deciding not to go to law school.
