Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Well, my profile is a bit long, so I'll treat this section as
something of a TL:DR. Information about me:
-Exercise is nice, but I don't enjoy exercise that *feels* like
exercise, so I prefer methods alternative to simply going to a gym
(hiking, biking, kayaking, etc)
-I am a nerd; this means I enjoy video games, board/card games, and
things of that nature.
-I am a handyman. I like to fix things and make things that are
useful. I wanted a thigh bag for hiking, so I made one.
-I like to do outdoors things. I enjoy hiking, camping, beach
combing, exploring. I tried whitewater kayaking, and it was a
blast. Something I'd like to do more of.
-I know what I'm looking for in a relationship and a woman. I have
no trouble telling what this is to anyone.
-I always try to be honest and understand other people's views,
though I'm not afraid to call people out when necessary.
-I try to plan ahead and be relaxed, but sometimes having a day of
spontaneity is nice.
-I haven't had the opportunity to travel yet, but I want to travel
all over the place. Ideally with a partner, but I'll do it by
myself if I can't find one soon enough.
I have plenty of hopes, but no expectations.
Never give up. Never surrender.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am employed. It's not what I'm intending to do with my life in
the long-term, but it's a job that I'm good at and provides me with
the stability that I need right now.
When I find the woman I'm looking for, we're going to go hike down
into the Grand Canyon and spend a few days down there swimming,
relaxing, and enjoying each other's company.
Working towards making myself better and healthier, it's a long
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Listening to problems.
Letting the little things go.
Observing small details that give clues to the overall
Making terrible, terrible puns. My roommates theorize that this is
the reason I'm still single.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have brown hair.
I can, but will not, keep a beard.
I wear hiking boots nearly all the time.
I have a tendency to be sarcastic, and this can be a bit abrasive
when first getting to know someone.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I will always have many books, be it in physical or digital
I read from a variety of authors; everything from Frank Herbert,
Julie E. Czerneda, L.E. Modesitt Jr., Jim Butcher, Kevin Hearne,
and so many more. I'm just getting around to picking up American
Gods, though it's been recommended by a thousand people.
I believe that music is far more important to brand recognition
than marketing companies realize.
For me, the beat of a song can make it or break it, to the
exclusion of all other things. This means that in general, my music
tastes vary widely.
I enjoy food.
I eat for the taste, and am fairly picky with what I prefer
Meat is delicious.
I enjoy video games and board games, though I don't have as much
time to play them now as I used to.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How can I get out of waking up this morning?
If I was trapped in a book/game, which one would it be?

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
As with everyone, there are never enough hours in the day. Or the
week. Or just entirely.
Balancing going out and staying in are incredibly important. Too
much of one or the other and I burn out. I like to go out and hike
and backpack, try new things, hang out with groups of people, and
whatnot, but I tend to get worn out if I do it too often. To
recharge, I like to spend some time inside cooking, reading,
playing video games, and just generally relaxing.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
This is the portion where I will actually give you insight to who I
am. Read closely.
To me, it's really the big stuff that is important. How well do we
get along? How well do we fit into each-other's lives? What is the
chemistry like? How compatible are we on a fundamental level? How
natural are our interactions? These are things that have
effectively no bearing on your match/friend percent, but are
arguably some of the most important factors.
I'm looking for a woman who is a partner, in all things. She is
someone who I always want to be with, even if our standard duties
separate us for the day. I'm a firm believer that having a great
partner and home life makes it so you can withstand anything.
It can take a lot to gain my trust. Once you have it, that's a very
important thing to me. It is even more difficult to gain my love.
If you have that, you will have it forever. Bar none. The situation
may change, but once you're in, you're in. There are some stories
behind this, and it's not likely to change.
I hate smoke and mirrors. I am who I am. You can take it or leave
it because in the end, who I am will not change. I don't enjoy
hiding behind masks to make people feel better, so I do my best not
to do it. That said, I'm always trying to better myself, so I'm not
some stagnant personality that will never change. I'm not perfect,
nor will I ever be, but that won't stop me from giving it my
I like to be doing stuff: building, going, moving forward. But
sometimes all you need to do is slow down, walk along the beach,
ponder the intricacies of your life, and consider what it would be

You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I know there are plenty of things I desire in a woman, but if I
meet the right one, all of those hopes could go out the window for
someone completely unexpected.
What that means is that if you message me, or I message you and you
decide to reciprocate is: Ask questions. I can inquire after you
all day, if you like. If you never ask anything of me, it seems to
me that you aren't actually interested in connecting. Conversation
is a two way street. When a response lacks any sort of real
conversation, I assume one of two things: You didn't read my
profile, or you're not interested.
If you have concerns, message me. Profiles are always incomplete,
and tend to be worded to be as inoffensive as possible. You'll
never know if you don't bring it up.
You should *really really* message me if you Praise the Sun or
enjoy some Jolly Co-operation. Seriously.
You probably shouldn't message me if:
You're into threesomes or open relationships. Polyamorous
lifestyles are not for me.
You hate video games and nerds.
You find anything I've written to be incredibly abhorrent.
