Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I try to focus on doing things with my life as opposed to worrying
about how people perceive me. Sometimes I growl and get angry;
friends laugh when i stomp my foot and i'll be laughing with
If you ask me about my hobbies, I'll tell you that I set extreme
goals that I would have definitively said "no" to 6 months prior.
It makes me giddy. And then I rock the goal.
It would be really great to have a go-to guy for cuddles, sex, and
general masculine support. Someone to trust and be myself with. A
partner. A long term relationship.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Fun and happiness are pursuits; I don't believe they fall into the
laps of the lazy. We've got to go get it! So that's what I
What I do for a living is a large part of who I am. I'm not sure
that I would go so far as to say that I live to work, but it does
usually energize me and give meaning to my life. I earned my
Doctorate so that I could be of service to others and I fulfill
that goal daily.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
-Baffling people with the things I say
-Making no sense at all even when my logic is perfect.
-Seeing what makes people special
-Teasing my brother.
-Being non-judgmental- because who really cares- except in traffic-
don't mess with me while driving. Random skill: I can parallel park
a bus. Well, at one point I could.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I can seem kind of serious. And I am serious sometimes; in my job I
have to be. I love it when guys make me laugh so that I can be my
relaxed, goofy, and generally irreverent self.
I also blush easily. Have fun with that one if we meet. If I'm
blushing, I'm probably also smiling which means I like you and
we're having a great date!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I think listing this stuff is kind of silly and doesn't really say
anything all that much about me but maybe it gives our in-person
conversation a jumping off point???

Food: Curry of any kind~ Indian, Thai, Ethiopian. Also becoming a
beer snob with my brother's support and guidance.
Venice is my favorite city. I've been 3 times. I realize that with
all of the wonderful other places in the world I shouldn't need to
go back again. At the same time, I'm sure that my life would be
sadder if I didn't.
Namibia and Thailand are my favorite countries so far.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
-A smile from a guy I have a crush on
-friends, the kind you've had forever and are now more like
-the ability to let go
-the ability to hold on
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Cognition affect and behavior?
I don't know, it's different all the time depending on what's on my
I love to laugh and laugh at myself frequently; it's the best kind
of laughter. Isn't it just so great when people crack themselves up
and are totally rolling in it?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Talking with a friend while we enjoy a nice dinner.
