Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I’m a technology professional in Somerville, MA. I’m a native New
Englander – my large family is all local, and my Boston accent gets
thick when I am around them. But don’t worry: I do a wicked good
job of hidin it for those who don’t think it’s chaamin.
I am a language-lover (Foreign Language major/former teacher). I am
an excellent snarky-haiku writer. I will slaughter you at Words
With Friends once we put money on the game. I like to share a glass
of wine and cook a nice meal or go out on a Friday night after a
long week. I’m not into television, and while I am on Facebook, the
selfie-generation makes me gag.
I’m sarcastic, but also very direct and honest-to-a-fault. I can
dish it and take it. Some have called me “refreshingly blunt.” My
friends have told me they like to hang out with me because “I talk
to anyone” and am always up to trying new things, whether it be a
new pub, planning a trip abroad, running a roadrace, snowshoeing
the Fells, or hosting a dinner party. Professionally, I work very
hard to be qualitative and make an impact in my field.
I’m a minimalist at heart and live the concept of “less is more.” I
splurge on experiences and gifts for others, but I am a saver and
on the prowl for my dream beach bungalow. I look forward to
spending weekends fixing up a place and making it my own.
I’m an outgoing introvert: I love dogs (had one for 11 years who
recently passed), am a practicing meditator and stained-glass
hobbiest. I sleep late on the weekends and have aspirations to
finish the book I started writing in 2004. I get "runner's high." I
love supporting local small businesses and frequent farmer’s
markets. I love being outside and walk as much as possible. I
dislike: barhoppung/clubbing, consumerism, air conditioning,
PowerPoint, hypochondriacs, green peppers, reality television, and
You: A tall order: Intelligent. Trustworthy. Romantic. Adventurous.
Compassionate. Affectionate. Charitable. Well-rounded. Open-minded.
Motivated to be his best self. A gentleman in word and deed.

I lean towards Alternative and folk. I was bereft when WFNX/101.7fm
went off the air in 2011 if that gives you insight.
I go through food eras like a toddler. I am currently into macaroni
and cheese. I also think I am addicted to wasabi. Yes, I've made
