Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi, I'm Ryan!
I'm hoping to meet a decent, smart, caring guy for a date. I love
to meet new people, and love to converse.
I love learning new things. Science, the world, news, or just
trivia - it doesn't matter; I want to know everything! I'm doing a
science degree right now, so of course that takes priority in
I enjoy spending time with friends - whether it's a casual night
in, or a house party (hopefully not too crazy!), or a night
bar-hopping. I'm equally at home with a group of people playing
German-style board games as I am with a group of people at a
Cooking is my main hobby. I love cooking things for people - my
neighbors are usually the victims, since they're convenient!
Other than that... I probably spend a little too much time playing
video games. I figure it's okay, because I don't watch much TV at
all. We all have to get our couch potato time in somehow,
If your idea of a good night is coming home from Jim's get-together
slightly tipsy, discussing the day's news while I cook up some pork
chops roasted with apples, carrots, and onions with a side of
mashed potatoes and fresh steamed asparagus, and then cuddling
together and shooting some aliens and/or each other... we may get
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I just left the Air Force after 4 years, and now I'm studying
geology at UA. Geology rocks! Hoping to continue on to graduate
school; I've yet to discover whether academia or industry is my
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Listening to people, remembering faces but not names, no-limit
Texas hold'em, modesty :p
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Folks notice that I'm always moving, always smiling, and always
joking around. Since I'm tall, sturdy, and have red hair, I usually
stand out in a crowd.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: the A Song of Ice and Fire series, The
Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
Shows: Breaking Bad, Law and Order (the original),
Jeopardy!, South Park, and Supernatural
Music: System of a Down, Metallica (earlier
stuff)... but I pretty much listen to anything as long as it's not
Food: real Italian food is the best on the
planet... unfortunately it's only found in Italy :( I really love
exploring new foods - Tucson has an amazing food scene for being
such a small city! Some of my favorite restaurants are Zeman's
Ethiopian, CeeDee Jamaican Kitchen, Guilin Chinese, El Guero
Canelo, Brushfire BBQ, and the list goes on. I'll eat pretty much
anything and probably enjoy it! Can you tell I like food? :)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Insightful and intelligent friends
A washer and dryer in my home - screw wasting time at
A heavy jacket for when it drops below 65 degrees
New things to learn
Number six is secret :)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
...at home, at a friend's place, or out hitting up the bars.
Depends on how I feel. Lately, staying in much more often. I do
enjoy the "bar scene" sometimes, in moderation. Going out and
meeting new people over one or several drinks is so much fun!
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
...you want some adventures. I'm up for anything, really! I like to
think I'm spontaneous and adventurous and outgoing and such, but I
need some help on those bits, so I'm looking for someone who will
text me at 8AM on Saturday with some awesome crazy idea of what
we'll do today! (Just kidding. There's no way I'm awake at 8AM on a
Saturday. But we could do something awesome Saturday afternoon!)
