Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
It's really a mission summarizing yourself! I've always got
something going on, and a lot of my "work" could be [and is] easily
confused for play. I like living my life in a strategically
spontaneous sort of way? Haha. I don't know....
....I've taken the time to get to know myself, and have a strong
understanding of my own character and convictions, what I value and
what I don't. I'm honest with myself about myself, and therefore
I'm OK being honest with those around me.
At that, I'm a good dude. I have good values. I'll treat you right
on our first date, and even better on our second one! You've just
got to let me know that you're into me because I'm embarrassingly
oblivious to come-ons and flirting.
Honestly, I'm all about this "love" stuff though -- but I've been
let down by it so many times. I'm looking for someone that'd be
alright with getting know each other as friends first....there
aren't any expectations on my end; but if a relationship were to
evolve out of us being friends then that'd be awesome!!
It's rare that I'll respond to a message that says: "Hey! What's
up?, "Hi!," or something like that -- so be an engaging and/or
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm currently studying Art History and Strategic Design Management.
I'm also in the beginning stages of starting my own company.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Anything involving art, cooking but NOT baking (I can't even bake
brownies from the box), design, photography, skiing, surfing,
swimming and traveling. Also, I'm very adventurous and spontaneous.
My family is always texting me: "Where in the world are you today?"
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
....is that I'm a very genuine and idealistic guy. Also, I feel
like people are quite surprised to learn that I'm so creative and
entrepreneurial. I'm sometimes told that I come off as seeming
disinterested, or snobby, and that's not true!! I'm actually just
over-compensating for my being nervous, and/or shy ;)
Physically, I'm 6'3, so that's kind of tall? I've also got some
gnarly scars (that come with gnarlier stories).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I like to buy books at the airport! I'm usually reading something
while I'm traveling. I'm currently reading: The Son by Philipp
The last movie that I saw in theaters was: TBD.
1. Game Of Thrones.
3. The Americans.
I also really liked Friday Night Lights and The OC....
I'm very selective when it comes to music. Whatever it is that I'm
listening to, it is fitting of that moment. I don't like rap music
I like almost ALL foods, but Thai food is my "go-to" favorite. I
can spend hours in Whole Foods geeking out over all of the health
food and wellness stuff. I'm not hesitant about trying new places
and/or things to eat -- so I'll probably take you out on a lot of
culinarily interesting dates.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
2. Best Friend
3. Good (Healthy) Food
4. Traveling (Passport)
5. Water (IE: Ocean; Pool; ETC)
6. The Map App (For iPhone)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The future. I know what I'd like my future to look like. I mean, I
definitely see myself in a committed relationship with someone that
is also my best friend. I think a lot about the person that I'll be
just as happy to do lame stuff (like the laundry), as well as
exciting stuff with....and although it's not going to be for
awhile, I definitely spend a lot of time thinking about being a
dad. Mine wasn't the best -- so being a good dad is something that
I'm really looking forward to.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
On my way home from practice. I've picked up some Thai takeout and
I'm relaxing on the couch binge watching movies/TV; I know that
that sounds boring BUT I'm usually exhausted after Water Polo and
the week in general....
....I'll go out with friends often though!!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm kind of a Geography nerd. If you give me a blank map, I can
name and locate every country in the world in under 5 minutes.
Also, I'm a little bit OCD -- if my place is messy, and or the
dishes have stacked up in the sink, then something is probably
Oh! I have this binder that I file interesting magazine articles
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I haven't given this a lot of thought, but you should be above all
things: compassionate, considerate, genuine (honest) and
respectful. I want someone that is adventurous (and loves to
travel), educated (and hopefully intelligent), exciting, fun, and
passionate -- these are the qualities that should make me laugh and
smile at you!! Also, I'd really like for you to be able to hold
your own in a conversation.
....but you should also be sexy (if you're a chick), masculine (if
you're a dude), and well put together (just in general). I myself,
am very casual and laid back kind of guy, and I think that being
high maintenance is EXTREMELY fucking unattractive.
I'm looking for that one good girl or guy that I'm supposed to
share my life and grow with. It's not that I'm looking to get
married (because right now, I'm not!!!!), it's just that I'd rather
be with one person (monogamously) that I prize; as opposed to being
perpetually single, and promiscuously "dating." Essentially, I
wouldn't want to be in any sort of relationship with someone that I
couldn't see getting on with my family, friends, and/or lifestyle
-- I'm not one to waste my/your time like that.
When I'm in a relationship, I'm the type of guy who wouldn't even
look at anyone else, ok, maybe I'd look at Miranda Kerr, but only
because she's famous ;) ....but seriously, nobody else would matter
to me in the way that you do. I want to be with someone that will
do the right thing even when I'm not there; and that wouldn't
interact with others in any sort of way that could be
[mis]interpreted as being "more than friendly." Therefore, I really
don't think that it's alright for you to surround yourself with
"friends" that you've been, or slept with -- loyalty is an all or
nothing concept to me, and also, I can do better than that.
I'm looking for someone that can slay their own dragons, and
explore the world alongside me -- I want to be with someone who
does't need me, but wants me for who I am.
Please be upfront with where you're at in life.
Who are you looking for?
