Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm an even-keeled person. I try not to let the little things get
to me and stay very level-headed when things don't go exactly as
planned. I don't panic when the car breaks down 300 miles from
home; my reaction to any sort of adversity is almost always cold
I think that communicating with other people is one of the most
difficult things to do and something I try to improve at it all the
time. One of the small things I have been trying to improve is
keeping the small commitments to visit or call people that get made
all the time in normal conversation. When I started paying
attention I was rather surprised at the amount of times I would say
something like, "I'll call you later" or, "I'll swing by after
work" but that I would never actually do. I can't say I am 100%
cured of making those kind of statements, but I have definitely
All in all I tend to be very critical of myself and genuinely do
try and improve everything I do.
I work in IT and enjoy my job. It has been very mentally
stimulating which had an interesting effect on my time outside of
work. I used to read voraciously and now tend to spend more time
with physical activities or just unwinding with a good show or
I have a lot of hobbies that keep me busy; I work on cars and mess
with computers all the time. I read and play video games a bit as
well. I really like taking road-trips and going camping and would
love someone that would go with me!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working and generally keeping busy with family and friends. Winter
slows things down, but I enjoy working on a car or riding a
motorcycle when I have the time and weather permits.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
If it can be dis-assembled I can probably figure out why it doesn't
work. If you need to push buttons in a certain order to make it
stop blinking "12:00" I can make it happen!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Robert Jordan, George R.R. Martin, Terry Goodkind, Neal Stephenson,
Heinlein, and David Gemmel are among my favorites. I like
Fantasy/Sci-Fi primarily, but survival horror stuff has been
keeping me occupied lately.
I like a lot of movies; westerns and action flicks when I want to
relax. I am a big fan of Indie stuff, psychological thrillers,
foreign films, etc when I want to be thoroughly entertained. I'll
watch pretty much anything (even rom-com's!) and will usually enjoy
it. The Fifth Element is probably my favorite movie; followed
closely by Open Range, Zombieland, Snatch, and Sylvester Stallone's
latest 3 films.
The only "TV" I watch is what Netflix has streaming, and then it is
usually consumed in large doses over short periods of time.
According to my Netflix history I have watched a lot of South Park
recently, with Lie To Me, Eureka, Top Gear, The IT Crowd, Lost, and
Invader Zim mixed in.
I mainly listen to Rock; favorite bands include Metallica, Led
Zepplin, Shinedown, and Jimi Hendrix.
I will eat pretty much anything. Mexican, Sushi, Pizza, and
Meatloaf are at the top of my list. Not a fan of Mushrooms or Baked
Beans, but I'll eat them instead of removing them from whatever
they may be in/on.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I am pretty adaptable and don't think there is much that would
really devastate me to lose (minus family and friends of course)
but in the spirit of the question:
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Road-trips I want to take.
If people on this site take into account the context of the
question when selecting the answers they will accept.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
In the garage working on something, or maybe out with friends.
Possibly relaxing with a beer in front of the TV after a
particularly stressful week. It is also entirely possible that I
got side-tracked by some random thing on the internet and spend the
next 8 hours reading about some person's awesome trip across Africa
or a ridiculous build-up of an AE86.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I really don't have any secrets... um, I trim my eyebrows and nose

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You think we have similar interests. You don't mind someone who has
a somewhat old-fashioned view and will open doors for you and
really does prefer to drive but wouldn't mind letting you if it
really means a lot.
