Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hello, thanks for looking at my profile. I'm a 40 year old single
guy, who doesn't really feel or act my age (most days). I've been
single for nearly 2 years now and have finally decided that I need
to get out and try my hand at dating.
I'll be the first to tell you I'm a pretty solitary kind of person
(I was an only child so it comes naturally), but I'm not a hermit
by any stretch of the imagination. The past few months I've finally
gotten tired of eating dinner/going to concerts/movies, etc by
myself and would love to find someone with similar interests with
whom I could spend time.
Unfortunately for me, I've always been 'the nice guy' or 'the
friend' when it comes to affairs of the heart. I don't cheat, I'm
not mean, don't talk down to people, etc ... just don't have it in
my DNA. So if you're looking for a jerk, keep moving. On the other
hand if you're into crazy things like being treated nicely, having
homemade mix cd's made for you (yes I am 14 at heart), etc - I just
might be your guy.
I like to think I have a good sense of humor and am pretty down to
earth. I like being silly (when applicable) and I'll be the first
to try to beak up an awkward moment with a bad joke.
Music is my passion, I love playing it and I collect 'old
fashioned' vinyl records (1,000+ and growing). One of my favorite
pass-times is sitting and just listening to a good album. I play
the ukulele ... I know it's a pretty manly kind of instrument, but
I find it very enjoyable and I can even make it sorta punk rock at
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I've been at the same job for 14 years, working for a small company
that distributes and service radiology supplies. There are days
that I love it and days that I don't. I started out working in the
warehouse and have moved up to being both the 'IT Manager' as well
as 'Inside Sales Manager', and I'm also the marketing department
(and I wear a couple of other hats depending on what is
Just recently work has provided the opportunity to do a little
traveling, and I've managed to see; Phoenix, New York and Vegas.
None of them were terribly long trips, but it's always fun to see
the world at someone else's expense.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I could spend all day listing the music I love, and the list might
even be different tomorrow. But as of today, some of my favorites
include; Grateful Dead, Radiohead, Pink Floyd, Beatles, Wilco,
50's/60's Chess & Stax releases, Tom Waits, Butthole Surfers,
Black Flag, Flaming Lips, Ween, James Brown, Primus .....
I like to read, just wish I could make myself do it more often. My
all time favorite book is 'On the Road', I try to reread it every
few years. I'm also a big fan of Hunter Thompson as well as Kurt
Vonnegut. Most recently I finished 'The Girl Who Played with Fire'
and will shortly be starting the final book of the Millennium
When it comes to movies, I'll watch just about anything as long as
it's entertaining. I tend to go for comedies, action, documentaries
and anything that's kind of 'oddball'. The last movie I saw was the
Avengers, which I loved.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
4) The Gym
5) Friends & Family
6) Words with Friends (ok maybe not, but it feels like it some
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Usually spending time with friends. If I'm not playing music, I
might be going out for dinner/drinks and a show, or watching the
Bulls. On a quiet Friday you might find me struggling to make my
own music and playing words with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm an open book, just ask.
