Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm honest, responsible, intelligent, fair/courteous (golden rule),
fun and quirky. Engineer by trade, nerd by habit.
I cook for myself but still go out often (Mentor is the land of
plenty when it comes to restaurants). In my spare time I fix up my
house (electric, plumbing... the essentials) or walk my dog. He's
got lots of energy so there's always gotta be playtime!
I have a grand plan to go hiking and hopefully camping more this
summer - depending on my house/work situation. OR maybe I'll
finally visit the botanical gardens and the museums downtown.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I listen to music/watch tv shows/do household chores. working at a
full time job, and preparing to do a major house renovation.
You are who you associate with, so I'm always trying to hang out
with other friendly, intelligent, happy people. This summer is my
second season of volleyball league and I hope to make it out
whitewater rafting again!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
knowing something about that. I know a little bit about a lot. I
surprise myself sometimes! My dad and brother are handymen and a
car guy, and I'm already an engineer so I think I have most of the
(technological) bases covered.
I'm also good at remembering names and faces and the little
details. A coworker told me about a peg on his porch being upside
down once, months later I made sure to look for it when I visited.
People say I don't listen because I'm sometimes aloof but that's
not always the case

I'm usually pretty cheery? bald? strike up conversations and try to
make people smile? or maybe it's that my shirt doesn't fit right? I
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Well, let's see: I can marathon TV shows/watch movies while I work
on the house, read anime subtitles while I fold clothes, listen to
music at work and audiobooks in the car.
I know a few great restaurants in each town, am willing to try new
ones, and prefer things I don't make often at home like sushi,
reubens, chicken paprikash. I like trying new foods when the
I like classic rock the most, followed by progressive metal, 90s
alternative, and heavy metal (when you can understand the singer!)
I also listen to everything else from current indie to 80s to
classical and even the music of my people: polka! OK, not so much
polka. Just rarely. No country though, sorry.
Not much time to read, I listen to audiobooks though. Game of
Thrones, Harry Potter, other fantasy. Last few physical books I
remember reading were Les Miserable, a dog training book, and as
any good professional: lots of safety manuals and technical
information related to my job.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Am I just like everyone else? 1) food 2) air, 3) my car...
come'onnn... I need friendship, excitement, great food, good
conversation, a sense of purpose helping someone else achieve their
goals too, and an occasional distraction whether it be shiny
lights, stars, or a road trip!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Physics: engineering school ruined special effects. Forever.
Dogs: I got a big one. Still a puppy too. How am I going to train
Renovation: as soon as I fix one thing, another one breaks.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
usually jotting down chores and projects I need to finish for the
weekend, starting my weekend meal plan (cooking), or driving around
to catch up with family/friends or go flea market shopping!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I used to try and color coordinate based on sports team colors.

you can or have done any one or more of the following: watch an
entire "Trilogy", play board games, cook something with >3
ingredients, won't rely on me for 90% of the conversation, know how
to play an instrument, can put your cell away for lunch or coffee,
can color coordinate, can tell me the distance between the earth
and sun or anything else I don't know.
... default, if you've made it this far go for it, just say more
than "hi" --- being daft is a turnoff, after all.
