Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Newly renovated property in a desirable neighborhood – completely
re-wired with many updates... That’s how I would describe myself if
I was a condo that I was trying to sell...
My first instinct with most things is usually to be lighthearted
and a little bit silly. I do take my life seriously, but I rarely
take myself too seriously.
Life is good. My job is rewarding, I have a great (albeit quirky)
family, I have had the same two best friends since I was a kid, I
exercise every day, and I find time for hobbies that I enjoy (I try
to play my guitar every day). In the past few years I have traveled
a lot and I spend a lot of time pondering potential new
There is very little that I want for in life except of course to
find the right person to share it with.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm very lucky to have found a job in biotech that allows me to
both create and make a difference. Every day I get to find new ways
to use technology and most mornings I wake up excited to go to
In a few years I'd like focus full-time on starting my own software
company… or to retire to a lake house to write for a living. We’ll
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Thinking outside of the box and talking about my feelings. Not
usually at the same time.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I’m affable. Someone recently used that word to describe so I am
going to go with that.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: You name it; fiction, non-fiction, self improvement, or
business (and technical) books. Recently I read the Brief and
Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao, Ready Player One, the Divergent series
and the Game of Thrones series (and lots of other series).
Movies: Anything except for serious period pieces (particularly
elizabethan). I have no clue why I loathe them so much.
TV: Big Bang Theory, Modern Family, Castle, Arrow, Doctor Who, Game
of Thronea and The Walking Dead.
Music: A few favorites from my most recent playlist: Bright Eyes,
Iron and Wine, The Avett Brothers, The Head and the Heart, The
Shins, and Mumford and Sons.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
New running shoes
My peeps (family and friends, not the marshmallow candy)
My titanium microcomputer (it keeps me going)
Puzzles to solve
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
At what distance does it become awkward to hold the door for
If this site allowed me to only message one person per month, would
I still send the message I’m writing?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
For the past nineteen years I have spent nearly every Friday night
with my daughter. In June she moved in with her boyfriend *grumble*
and I'm still adjusting to the unlimited freedom of living alone.
So I haven't figure out what a typical Friday night is yet but I'm
open to suggestions!
It is a testament to my coolness that my daughter still wants me to
visit her every week and texts me during our favorite TV
If you are curious, Maddy (my daughter) joined my life when I was
in college and her mom and I didn’t work out (18 years ago). Maddy
hit a rough patch in high school so I moved to Lexington so she
could live with me full time. Being a parent has been an amazing
adventure and if life gives me another opportunity I'd definitely
consider doing it again.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My username isn't a metaphor, I actually have wires in my heart
Oh, and apparently I use emoticons...
