Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Most people would probably describe me as a laid back, friendly guy
who seems equally content either chatting with anyone nearby, or
just quietly hanging out.
(Though most of those quiet times I'm actually waiting for the
opportune moment to deliver a quick joke that makes people spray
their beverage out their nose. Not to be cruel you understand, it's
more of an experiment to determine how the amount of liquid sprayed
from a nose varies depending on the type of drink consumed. It's
purely scientific. Really! I'm going to write a book. Or at least a
More generally, I try to take a balanced approach to life. I plan
and prepare for the future, but living life fully is too important
to pass up opportunities because they weren't "part of the plan".
Adapt to what is, and get on with it.
Family is very important to me. My son occupies a large part of my
life; along with the rest of my family. Thankfully, they all live
close by and "time with the family" generally means a Saturday of
wave runners and barbecue at the cottage or the occasional family
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
My current priorities are my son, working (yes, I am gainfully
employed) and having fun. I've also begun the coursework necessary
to upgrade my state certification to the Master level. (if you're
really curious let me know, but I won't bore everyone right now)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making sarcastic comments to unpleasant people without them being
entirely sure I've just insulted them;
Finding a cheaper way to buy almost anything;
Persuading bleeding children that they don't need to cry because
bleeding wounds are really cool.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm very quiet right up until I start talking;
I accidentally use enough SAT vocabulary to make people wonder if
I'm doing it on purpose; (I'm not, I just read too much)
If I'm concentrating hard on something I tend to look angry.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Diet Mountain Dew,
a vehicle of some kind,
a belt (i feel undressed without one, and you can use it to repair
cars in a pinch)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Ensuring the continued supply of the six things I could never do
Whether my next big trip will be Disney World or Brazil;
Whether I want to wake up at 6:50 or 7:10 am for work.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Half of the time I'm playing cards with friends or occasionally at
the pub; I also try to go to the Theatre or a concert every couple
The other half of the time I am driving a pre-teen to whatever
event he has scheduled this time.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have far more in common with Sheldon from Big Bang Theory than
I'd like to admit.
I still have some d10's and d20's, I'm familiar with M:TG, Rifts,
Champions and AD&D; and I remember when WOTC didn't rule the
world. (yes, this is intentionally vague. I'm only willing to admit
it to people who know what it means.)
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You at least smiled while reading my profile;
You don't mind that I have a child who lives with me;
After you tell me you think I'm wrong you won't get upset when I
return the favor; (politely of course)
And obviously, if you think it might be fun to meet;
P.S. If you're the type that doesn't want to send the first msg but
you found my profile interesting, at least wink or something.
Otherwise I may never know!
