Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hello! This is my first time trying the online dating scene (which
I'm sure is true for a lot of people), so I'll do my best to
summarize even though I really have no idea what I'm doing.
First off, the ultimate question: Who am I? (The answer is NOT 42;
bonus points if you get the reference). For most of my life I've
been in some sort of school or another, so I'm always eager to
learn something new. The result of all that school is that I'm now
an engineer, working what has pretty much been my dream job. It has
also shaped my life in many other aspects. I'm an organized person,
I don't often get angry, and try to approach problems rationally. I
love science and the amazing wonders that it reveals. I am a quiet
person, but I still like to have fun (who doesn't?). I enjoy
reading, movies, spending time with my close group of friends, and
playing games (video or board, doesn't matter to me). I pride
myself on my great sense of humor; I can take a practical joke (as
my coworkers have proven time and again; just prepare for the
Now what am I looking for? I'm looking for a partner, not a hook-up
or short-term deal. Someone that I can share anything and
everything with, and hopefully someone that would be willing to
share the same with me. I'd really like the kind of partner that is
really a best friend (do they work out if they aren't?). I'd also
really enjoy being introduced to new activities, so if you don't
share the exact same interests as me, that's okay with me, I'm
willing to try anything new (be forewarned, though, my dancing will
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm currently an engineer working in the aerospace industry (if
that sounds interesting, I can definitely go into more
In my free time I'm usually hanging out with my close friends.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
- Random trivia. I'm like a walking version of Wikipedia.
- Tearing things apart. Unfortunately, I'm not as good at putting
them back together again. I always learn something in the process
The first things people usually notice about me

My sense of humor. I can make a joke out of just about anything
(when appropriate, of course). Being able to laugh at the small
stuff can greatly reduce the amount of stress in your life. I
highly recommend it!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Since I read way too much for work and school, any reading I
do for entertainment couldn't be considered "heavy". Science
fiction or fantasy, with a smattering of Stephen King in the mix.
I'm a huge fan of the Harry Potter series, Game of Thrones, Dune,
and of course, Lord of the Rings.
Movies: If it makes you think, I'll probably enjoy it. Again,
though, science fiction or fantasy are staples for me. I absolutely
love horror movies, though. I'm always up for a good scare (sadly,
not much scares me anymore)!
Shows: More scifi staples here. X-Files is my all-time favorite.
Lost, Firefly, Fringe, BSG. Breaking Bad was excellent. Also a fan
of Community, Parks & Rec, TBBT, & The Office. BBC is
making some excellent TV. Sherlock is amazing.
Music: I've rediscovered my love of 80's and 90's music (except
country and rap/hip hop, I've never enjoyed those).
Food: I'm willing to try almost anything, although for the most
part I'm a fairly picky eater. I'll never pass up a good steak
though. I have a shellfish allergy (not serious) so I tend to avoid
What isn't listed here is games. Video or board games. I play them
both. But not your standard board games, like Monopoly. More like
Arkham Horror, Dominion, and Pandemic.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
In no particular order (and I couldn't think of six; aside from the
standard family and friends, there isn't much I could never truly

Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
If I'm with friends, we usually grab dinner and then go to a movie
or hang out at someone's house. We're not a party or club crowd,
but still enjoy our time together.
If I'm not hanging out with friends, I'm usually at home catching
up on whatever the latest book I'm reading or playing some games.

Hmmm, I'm not sure what I would consider too private. I guess just
ask me something, and I'll let you know.
