Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
By day I'm a busy professional engineer, I do structural
engineering on a wide variety of infrastructure projects. It's not
as boring as it sounds ... ;-)
Outside work I enjoy a wide variety of things: yoga (ashtanga),
exercise and the outdoors (love hiking), travel, reading and
intellectual pursuits, languages, great food/drink (I like
cooking), conversation, sports, movies/music, games, humor etc. I
am told by some I'm intelligent, interesting, and funny.
I'm looking to meet some interesting new people for friendship, fun
and dating. I definitely would like to find something significant
and serious but i think it's best not to put too much pressure on
that right away. let's get to know each other and go from there,
but if the sparks fly and we click I'm definitely game for
Please Note: I'm unfortunately allergic to cats. It's not a deal
breaker on my end if you have them but some flexibility on your
part might be required if you do .... ;-)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Living it ... working as an engineer, learning about anything and
everything, traveling, exercising, enjoying the outdoors, working
on my Dutch, yoga ... and answering stupid questions on this site!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
making people laugh, cooking (well, i'm decent at it), my job
I'm getting better at yoga, when I started I couldn't touch my toes
and now I can get a leg behind my head ... crazy!
What I'm not good at: typing (I'm horrible), filling out this
thing! i wish i were better at languages, i love them and wish i
could learn them all
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I'm not posing in my bathroom without a shirt? ;-)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: history mainly, the classics, thiller-type novels. I also
stay current on politics, us and world events etc. For that type of
thing I like the Atlantic, New Yorker, Economist, New York Times,
LA Times. If you get your news on Fox News, we're definitely not on
the same page ...
Music-wise i like a wide variety, everything from classical to rock
to bluegrass to blues/jazz to singer-songwriters. I'm a little
stuck in time I suppose in that I mostly listen to stuff that came
out a while back but I do like newer stuff too.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I've unfortunately gotten pretty attached to my iphone, which makes
me laugh because I'm old enough to fondly recall the single rotary
phone we all had in our kitchens with the 50 ft. cord on it!
yoga/exercise keeps me feeling good and sane so i'll add that
books/internet .... i like learning way too much to live without
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Everything. Ok, while true, i'll also be more specific. I think
about making my life better, the world a little better, engineering
problems (i get paid to do that plus it's interesting) .... but at
any given moment who knows what's going through my head .... ;-)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Relaxing after the work week, hanging out with a friend, eating
some great food, it varies.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Yea right. Private = never put it on the internet!
One thing about me that is unusual is that although I make my
living as an engineer, I'm also a highly trained and experienced
massage therapist. Yea, go figure.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You want to! ;-)
