Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.

you question the wisdom of what you’re about to do or what you’ve
just begun to do, then it’s not an adventure. Here are some other
• Am a “Happy Blue” snow skier, fearless water skier and newly
hatched wake boarder
• Love biking for fun and transportation and I've still got a
century ride to check off on my bucket list
• Love to bake cookies and always use the original Tollhouse recipe
if I'm baking chocolate chip ones
• Created my own consulting business from the ground up
• Make a mean grilled eggplant and can stir-fry with the best of
• Am a passionate and extensive traveler and still have Tibet,
Turkey and an African safari on my wish list (although I would not
mind going back to Paris, either!)
• Love cheap ethnic food as much as I like dressing up to go to Les
Nomades or Grace.
• Spent 3 weeks in Nepal, trekking and looking for tigers
• Love yoga, walking, biking and staying fit.
Most of these things, though, would be more fun with someone great
– like you.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You’re one of those men whose friends think he is terrific and they
maybe wonder why you haven’t been snatched up! You’re considerate,
smart, a do-er, funny, cute to me, and passionate about life. We’d
enjoy doing small, unassuming things for each other. Like me, you
are comfortable with yourself, live a healthy lifestyle, value your
friends and family, and are looking for a true partner. I’m looking
for a guy I can call to say “Hey! It’s me…” and then chat together
about our day.” You too?
