Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm still learning how to operate this thing called my life. I have
days where it goes exactly where I intend it to go. And some where
nothing at all seems connected, or at least it's connected
incorrectly. But at least it's fun, and nothing really ever pisses
me off. I have a high tolerance for a lot of things, and little
tolerance for some. I'm told I have a great dry sense of humor.
Smarts impress and attract me.
I love to read. I also like to go movies, some sporting events
(I've given up on the Vikings, they've been busting my chops since
I was a kid and I just can't take it anymore). I like theatre,
dance, a lot (when other people are doing it, I like to myself as
well) just arts in general I find enjoyable. Like live music in the

I pride myself on being a considerate, honest and loyal person. My
parents tried to teach that to me(of course I didn't see the value
of it at the time of the lessons.) And like being treated the

I'm comfortable in my own skin. Admittedly that took several years
of adulthood to get there.
Ideally, the woman I want to meet and grow with would be smart, up
on what's going on in the world, would know she's
attractive(confidence shows), isn't afraid of pda(kept within
limits of course, unless there is absolutely no one around then all
bets are off......JK) and enjoy the arts. I guess I would say
that's to start with. After that the requirements become
Anything more and you'll just have to ask me.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm observing the human race not in judgment but fascination.
Sometimes it amuses me, sometimes it makes me wonder. I work in a
law firm, but I'm not a lawyer. I also volunteer sometimes.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making people laugh, engaging them in conversation.

I look them in the eye. I have a very dry sense of humor. I

what that means for sure, am I sardonic or ironic? I'll go with
