Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Are we having fun yet? Because isn't that what this is all about:
finding someone to have fun with? Someone to share our wants,
desires, aspirations and dreams, but also someone who will support
and stand by us when things don't go exactly according to plan.
Life can be better and can be easier when you have the right
someone to share it with, right?
The key to the foregoing is "the right someone". We are all old
enough (oh, how I still shudder when using the word "old" in
reference to me) to have experienced situations where being with
another who was not right was arguably worse than being
Finding this right someone can be a challenge and this is why we
are here: perusing an online dating site. Let's admit it, most of
this isn't much fun: wading through an endless number of profiles
profiles that over time blur and all read the same, and meeting
many people: great people; nice people; quirky people; funny
people; strange people; and perplexing people. BUT never meeting
your person: the right someone. we keeping looking ...
Are you my right someone?
Are you gracious? Are you kind and humble? Are you intellectual but
demurs as when being referred to as such? Are you spontaneous? Do
you have a childlike wonder? Would you rather do than watch? Are
you a different, a bit unconventional but not threateningly so? Do
you realize you are forever imperfect and yet strive for
perfection? Are you empathetic? Are you athletic? Are you in denial
about your physical limitations and as such refuse to allow them to
hold you back? When you see a mountain, do you sometimes have the
urge to climb it? When you stand on the banks of a wide river, do
you wonder what it would be like to swim across it? Do you believe
being over 40 is never an excuse? You dig bald guys with shaved
heads? Can you see beauty where all others only see despair? Would
you rather be curled up on a couch with your "right someone"
watching a terrible movie than drinking the finest champagne from a
hot tub on the back porch of your mountain-view mansion alone? Do
you break out in laughter when the best laid plans go terribly awry
and think "such is life"? would you rather someone refer to you as
cute than gorgeous? Are you emotionally open? Are you unflinchingly
honest but never intentionally hurtfully so? Do you believe it is
better to give than receive and better to serve than be served?
Does exercise clear your mind and melt away your stress and
anxiety? Do you sometimes wake up (figuratively or physically) and
just think about how truly lucky you really are? Are you witty and
even sarcastic but not hurtfully so?
Do you seek the same only masculine in place of feminine?
The search for the right someone continues ... I am hoping for a
happy ending. How about you?

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am a founder and partner of an intellectual property boutique law
firm. We work with entraprenuers, growing business and inventors to
help protect and enforce their legal rights as they relate to
In previous lives, I have been an engineer in the aerospace
industry and an entrepreneur in the high end bicycle market.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
My job, writing, solving problems and fixing things (I am both an
engineer and lawyer after all).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I love history especially reading about it whether Revolutionary
war history, Colorado and mining history, pirates or anything else
for that matter.
Foodwise, I love Mexican, Italian, middle eastern and many other
Movies: I don't get to go to movies as much as I would like and
when I do go, it is usually to kid friendly movies (I have 12 YO
twin girls). Historically I tend to prefer independent films that
are quirky and a bit outside of the mainstream.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. My kids (they count for two although technically they are not
Pretty much everything else I could do without. however, rather
than be difficult, I will play along:
3. The Internet and the web ( I am an information junkie)
4. My running shoes (although I suppose I could run barefoot,
5. My Swiss army multi purpose tool (how did I fix things before!?)
UPDATE: I have not seen or used my multi-purpose tool in weeks (I
hope it is somewhere in my truck) and yet I am still here. SO
clearly, this is something I can live without.
6. A sixth thing is escaping me right now, which is a good thing I
think. Maybe I am not overly materialistic. Wait, wait, wait! Since
I put my kids above, i suppose it would be appropriate to put my
family here. I am indebted to my parents for their upbringing of me
and the role model they have provided me in raising my own kids.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I think a better question might be what don't I spend a lot of time
thinking about. I am spending a lot of time pondering relationships
(both of the platonic and romantic variety).
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Friday night has traditionally been go out to dinner night with my
kids. I look forward to it as I know they do as well. But every
other Friday, I am free to do whatever strikes me.
