Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Let's see... what to write that will perk your interest and make me
sound interesting, attractive, and normal without sounding arrogant
and/or weird? I consider myself a responsible, old-fashioned guy,
thoughtful and considerate, with slightly sarcastic sense of humor.
I may be the least nerdy nerd you could meet, as I enjoy HDTV and
Discovery Channel over reality TV, reading NatGeo over a novel
(although all this Shades of Gray talk makes me want to read the
flippin' thing!). Generally I don't read as much as I'd like to,
and don't watch much TV at all.
Although I do love a lazy Sunday watching football, then running
patterns with my boys in the backyard, a workout at the gym, or an
afternoon by the local pool (missing that lately!). Running/biking
on nice days and watching a good movie on the couch is equally fun
for me. I can talk about most anything passably, but you won't find
me winning any prizes for smooth talking. I'm no good at putting on
a front, what you get is what you get. I enjoy trying new
restaurants, all kinds of music (and many times singing when I
think no one can hear), and traveling -- haven't done much of that
I'd be interested in you if you share some of the same interests,
are quick with a smile, and enjoy going out and trying new things
(and familiar things, too!). Add smart, confident, and at least
semi-sane, and you're sure to win my attention. An occasional
running partner or workout buddy would be nice, but not
I'm not interested in dating just for something to do on a Friday
night, although occasionally that's a good thing. Looking for a
connection, a "spark" (cheese alert!), someone who makes me start
thinking about when I'm gonna see this girl again, before the
evening is half over.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Education, good job I enjoy, wonderful kids, house, blah, blah, all
that stuff I've taken care of. Trying to find someone special to
share it with.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Singing in the car. Spiking a volleyball. Helping with homework.
Noticing the subtle things. My job. Writing. Cleaning (yeah, it's a
curse). Staying fit. Fixing problems. Setting goals and achieving

I’m an empty essay… fill me out!

they find me horribly difficult to look at. At least they don't
mention that out loud.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Music, friendships, family, home, food, and outdoors.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either at home with kiddos, or out with friends, or hanging with
myself (good company!)

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You think we would be a good match. And you are smokin' hot and/or
independantly wealthy. /jk! Really, if you are happy with your
life, but missing that last piece, are confident, interesting, fun,
and still believe that there are good guys out there.
