Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a computer programmer and diet/exercise enthusiast. I like to
play video games and do diet-coaching my free time. I'm trying to
combine all that and create some diet tracking software that's fun
So why am I here?
So, I have a few single friends who use this site and ask for
advice... I'm totally unqualified to give dating advice (I've been
married for 12 years and am not looking for a date) but I try
I've always wanted to answer the questions for fun. Now that you
can make a "for friends only" profile, I figured I'd sign up. So
here I am!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Right now I'm just working extra hours to put my wife through vet
school and get us set for the future. She's almost done now (she
already passed her boards and she gets her DVM in the spring). It's
going to be awesome when she graduates. I'll get to see how modern
of a man I *really am* when she starts introducing us as "Dr. and
After the whole vet school thing, I get to dial my hours back a
little bit, and spend some more time investing my heart in some
more personal projects instead of just trying to make money.
Update: She graduated!
My recent passion has been coaching friends (and acquaintances that
have become friends) with their diets. Two of my friends have lost
over 100 lbs. Every single person I have helped has been successful
(knock on wood). How cool is that? I'm going to find a way to do
this for a living. I can't wait!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
being a positive force, and helping others get where they want to
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure is my favorite movie of all time
because it contains a concise moral code: Party on and be excellent
to each other. Seriously, that covers everything. Other movies:
Adaptation, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Donnie Darko.
When it comes to books, I read programming books almost
exclusively, because staying on top of technology is an important
part of my job. So, nothing exciting in this department, but I do
hope this will change. I make the occasional effort, but not much
grabs me. What's my deal? I don't even know.
I like all kinds of music. That includes crappy music, so this
means I have shitty music taste. But here's my hypothesis: Being
able to appreciate music other people don't like is a talent. It
can't be *bad* to get enjoyment out of *more*, right? :). Lately I
have been listening to a lot of EDM / Dubstep.
Food? I like food. All food. I'm hungry right now probably. When I
was a kid and my mom took me to the grocery store, I would
occasionally ask her for a cake and she'd say "It's not your
birthday. You can't have a cake." I said that when I was an adult
I'd go buy a cake even though it wasn't my birthday. I still
haven't done this! I always forget.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
VP91Z and a couple magazines
Rope or a crowbar
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Has anyone ever had exactly one oodle of something? I think this
should be a thing. An oodle of something would be exactly enough.
So you could say "I had an oodle of noodles and it totally hit the
On a more serious note, I spend a lot of time thinking about the
idea of a pure heart. To argue serious issues with respect, a
sensitivity for others' opinions, and with a genuine interest in
changing minds rather than "winning". To be honest with people and
oneself above all. To respect true freedom and let others live
however they like, provided they hurt no one. To make a concerted
attempt to push human knowledge forward. To act with such
selflessness as to be unaffected when others are unappreciative.
On a typical Friday night I am

unabashedly working. These couple years are my wife's time. We're
working on getting her through vet school. Once she graduates this
spring there will be more "me" time!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I just bought deodorant for the first time in 6 years. But it's
because I got a really good deal on a 24-pack on amazon 6 years ago
and I just now ran out.
