Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
So hey. I'm Adam. Summarizing myself in a paragraph or two isn't
exactly the easiest task ever, but dammit, I'm going to try.
Essentially, I'm an active, easygoing guy that likes to keep myself
and the people in my life laughing (either with or at me, I'm fine
with either). I am usually teetering on the fine line between being
witty and being a smart-ass.
I like to keep busy, both at work and at home, which means the lull
periods in my life tend to drive me a little crazy. With that being
said, I can totally appreciate a quiet day to myself every so
I really don't take myself seriously, and I'm often flippant, which
tends to irritate the serious people. I do, however, have zero
qualms about standing up for myself or for my friends when the
situation calls for it.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work in the television industry on a show for the Discovery
Channel about fishermen in Newfoundland. I manage footage and
troubleshoot problems that editors have.
I'm also the narrator of said television show, and will often hear
my own voice coming from rooms that I'm not in. It's almost stopped
weirding me out. Almost.
I like to keep active, and so I play hockey three times a week. My
gym membership expired a while back, but sports give me exercise as
well as satiate my competitive nature, so I haven't gotten it back
quite yet. In the summer, I plan to do a
hockey/softball/other-sport combination, so we'll see how that
Next fall, I'll be assistant coaching a AA minor hockey team, which
I'm really looking forward to.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Escape rooms. I'm 2 for 2 with two different groups of friends.
Since I was the constant between the two, I'm declaring myself
amazing at them. (For now, heh.)
Owning and learning from my mistakes.
I'm pretty good at diffusing tension by doing or saying something
silly. This'll often lead to weird looks and people thinking that
I'm a little batty, but IT WORKS, dammit!
Finding really inconsequential reasons to have a glass of whiskey
or wine (usually of the red variety).
I've practiced a great subway scowl (or resting-bitch-face, let's
be honest) so I don't ever get harassed on my commute.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
It's likely my voice. I have the tendency to tell stories with
silly accents, goofy voices, and strange intonations. People
usually only look at me funny when I do it in a meeting at
I have the neatest printing of any male that you've ever met, and
I'm damn proud of it.
In the summer, I'll be the only person in the entire group who is
missing a tan. Thanks, Irish genes - thanks a lot.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Here's a smattering of things I like.
Books: "The Millennium Trilogy" by Steig
Larsson/Game of Thrones series. Anything by Mira Grant. Most
dystopian fiction, mystery novels, and any kind of hard sci-fi. I
enjoy reading a lot, and I do it very, very quickly.
Movies: Hot Fuzz, Cabin in the Woods, Aliens
TV Shows: Person of Interest, House of Cards, Game
of Thrones, Walking Dead, Sherlock (BBC), Star Trek: TNG, Brooklyn
Music: Foo Fighters, Black Keys, Fun.
Food: Mushrooms are the worst. I will refuse to
even touch them. On the other hand, I have an unhealthy enjoyment
of asparagus. Both cooking it, and saying the word. I like making
stir-fries a lot. Roasting veggies is usually tasty. Not sure if I
could live without chicken.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) Music, especially on my commute to work.
2) Hockey, for without it, I would go completely and utterly
3) Pockets, because I am not nearly European enough to carry a
4) Coffee, since I am probably the world's worst morning
5) A thick case for my phone, as I have the tendency to toss it up
in the air when I'm bored or thinking.
6) My friends and family, and yes - I'm aware that they are not
"things", especially by most human rights definitions, but I would
be truly lost without them being awesome during all the right
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Usually I've got a lengthy to-do list in my mind or a set of goals
that I want to achieve for each day, and I'm thinking about those,
and how I can get as much done as possible. When I'm truly
motivated, I'm often able to accomplish a lot.
I keep thinking that I'm not very well traveled and then I remember
that I've been all over the United States and Canada... which I
think counts. Next on the list would be exploring my Irish/German
roots in Europe, or maybe a cross-country road trip that I've been
trying to talk some of my buddies into.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
If I'm not playing hockey, I'm probably just out and about having
adventures with my friends. We tend to end up at all sorts of
various places. At the end of the night, I often feel like I can
walk home from anywhere in the city. Much to my chagrin the next
morning, I haven't been proven wrong.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I think that the bottom of the ocean is a terrifying, terrifying
place. Sea lampreys are the scariest bloody things ever. Like, why
DO THEY NEED TO EXIST. SERIOUSLY. Look it up on Google and tell me
I'm wrong! Yeesh.
All we need is a walking mushroom creature with sea lamprey-face
tenacles, and then you can just count me out. Of
I have never watched Breaking Bad. I couldn't get into it. Yes, I
know, it's unforgivable. I swear that I'm a good person
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you have a quick wit, a good heart, and the really strange urge
to sing a whole lot of karaoke, then I would probably love to hear
I'm also partial to people who enjoy things like playing pool,
eating nachos, watching/playing sports (especially hockey,
baseball, or football), and booting up the ol' Netflix and going to
town. If any of the above describes you, well... the "Send Message"
button is staring you in the face. Push it. PUSH ITTTTTTTT.
