Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Please excuse my cynicism but online dating will always come second
in my opinion to meeting/dating in-person and until I meet a girl
in person, I won't hold much stock in anything online here.
Disclaimer: unless you are actually wanting and willing to meet up
in person eventually, don't waste your time messaging me. I'm tired
of pointless messages that lead nowhere. In my opinion, online
messages are only worth the paper they're printed on and it's well
beyond annoying and immature to message a person and not even have
the decency or commitment to even meet for a simple cup of coffee
or whatever. Ok, rant over.
I'm a fairly traditional person and a hopeless romantic at heart. I
like to do the traditional kinds of things for a girl (i.e.
flowers, open doors, long walks, snuggling together next to a fire,
etc.) I am somewhat shy at first but once you get to know me I am
pretty open. I exercise regularly and eat healthy most of the time
and would like to find a girl that takes care of herself too and
hopefully shares at least some of the same interests and lifestyle
choices as me...
BUT, let's be honest, how many people on here are actually looking
for that? By my count, so far no one. Despite a few messages maybe
exchanged, nobody seems to actually want any of that sappy, corny,
traditional stuff in their lives. People want excitement, danger,
mystery, spontaneity and not stability, loyalty, reliability, care,
chivalry, and most of all true love. I will be very surprised if
anything at all comes out of this whole thing. And since almost
nothing genuinely real has come out of being on this site, I'm
going to say now that I'm not really looking for anything serious
anymore because serious doesn't seem to be anywhere on here so for
now I'm just open to meeting new people, new friends, and hopefully
having a good time some good conversation and if something good and
lasting should come out of it, awesome, but I'm not holding my
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Six months into my full time Educational Video Editor job at the U
of I. Making lecture videos for online courses.
I'm also a freelance videographer for hire.
I'm also working on making my own short films when I have free time
and the motivation after a full work day. I work with Champaign
Movie Makers as well as Champaign-Urbana Film Society as well as
several other local filmmakers and local production

I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Caring for others' needs before my own. I am a fast learner at most
everything especially when it comes to technology and gadgets or
mechanical kinds of things. I know how or can and love to figure
out how most anything works. Yeah I'm a nerd and proud of it.
Sincere hugs and really good massages, I got me some magic fingers
Random facts: I sing in my church's choir. I can bake a mean apple
pie, and I can cook just about anything. I clean, and I like it
(Yeah you read that right, I like to freakin' clean!! It's relaxing
to me and depending on the activity, it can even be a bonding or
romantic one). I can fix most things, or I'll figure out how, or
I'll learn. Despite how unbelievable my affection might seem here
on an online profile, if I am affectionate towards a girl, it's
definitely for real. The hard part for me has been to convince a
girl that I'm serious in my affection.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Is my smile and sincerity. I work hard on everything that matters
in life, myself, my job, my family, my friendships, and especially
my relationships. Actually, you probably wouldn't figure that out
about me until you've known me for a while. I suppose the first
thing(s) people notice would be my quiet, shy nature, maybe my
smile too. I like to sit back and observe and then join in if I
feel like it. But you can tell me what you noticed first about me.

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am not a typical guy who spends most of his time on sports and
drinking and hanging with the guys. I'd rather be spending time
with a girl, getting to know her, treating her right, generally
being the best gentleman and friend I can be for her. I don't care
that I am not a typical guy but instead I take pride in being a
good man especially for a girl.
At least, in an ideal world that's what I'd like to be for a girl,
but considering it seems that most girls aren't looking for that or
think that I'm not for real, and instead they're looking for the
dangerous, bad boy kind of guy who ignores, neglects, and treats
them as objects for their pleasure, I'm probably going to be
spending my time endlessly looking and never finding.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You want to and/or if you share similar interests and/or lifestyle
choices or just want to chat.
You know what, even if we're total opposites, drop me a line, you
never know what might happen ;)
Please do not message me if you are not even in the same country or
if all you can say is hi.
Oh and one last thing, I've seen a lot of girls saying they would
like a guy who knows the difference between to, too, and two and
your, you're and there, they're, and their. I earned two degrees so
I definitely know the difference, I definitely know when and how to
use them, and I get at least slightly annoyed when people
continually misuse them and/or can't use proper grammar at all or
mispronounce really common, simple words.
