Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I like to laugh a lot and I'd say I have a rather dry sense of
humor. This site cracks me up on occasion...it often reminds me of
a mail-order catalog where you can flip through a million profiles
until you find the perfect match...too bad real life (and
chemistry) aren't quite so easy!
I'm pretty well traveled (25 countries give or take) and would
enjoy seeing more with the right person. The last three places I've
lived have been DC, Denver, and Boston.
I try to keep myself physically fit and one of these days I'd like
to tackle a half or full marathon.
I believe that friendship, humor, respect and love are the basis
for a solid relationship...but physical attraction and chemistry
don't hurt either!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Doing my piece to keep our beautiful country safe and secure. I
work for the government like most people in the D.C. area.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making someone feel special. I've heard a good way to do this is to
read the 5 Love Languages and then actually follow the principles
in the book. ;) I'm also a pretty good listener.

Help your potential matches find common interests.
I filled this section out to give you some insight into what I
enjoy but I hope you realize it's not necessary to be a clone in
terms of favorite books or movies...although it's nice to share a
Favorite books: given a choice, I tend to gravitate to fiction
although some of the classics have a place on my bookshelf as well.
Favorites are Les Mis, Count of Monte Cristo, LOTR, Unbroken and
Name of the Wind.
As far as favorite movies/TV shows go: I usually don't have a lot
of time for binge watching - but I've heard Game of Thrones and
Orange is the new Black are good. I'm pretty much game for anything
in a movie theater although I also enjoy nights on the couch
watching movies with someone special.
Unlike most men (or so I've been told), I enjoy Broadway
musicals...the energy of live performances can't be beat!
Paradoxically, I enjoy sports and follow the Patriots, Red Sox and
most of the local DC teams from time to time.
I also like exploring the local live music scene. So far I've been
to shows at Wolf Trap, the State Theater (where I've seen The
Legwarmers twice so far--love 80s music!)...and I'd like to hit the
9:30 Club and Jammin' Java in Vienna soon. In a nutshell, I'm
pretty flexible in my music tastes...just not into really heavy
stuff or elevator music.
Favorite foods: Thai, sushi, Korean, Cheesecake Factory Strawberry
Glazed Cheesecake, plus whatever! I'm pretty much willing to try
