Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I've been compared to Mel Brooks (hilarious, witty, Jewish, short
and not so easy on the eyes). I have kind of a dry sense of humor
with absolute blasts of genius. The genius is sometimes masked
within my ranting tirades against anything. I have this uncanny
ability to defend and condemn any point of view at the same time,
It makes me one of the most accepting people alive while also one
of the most judgmental. My humor is usually self deprecating as I
can only really laugh at something I understand. Things I don't
understand get a head shake and a nod. I break into accents at any
time. It's kind of Tourette's thing but it can be fun. I Dance jigs
when I'm happy or when it's your birthday and I always have 4 or 5
suits pressed and ready for emergencies. To my detriment I am a
romantic. I just got back from a trip to Portland and had my top
meal ever! I'd love to tell you where. You'll have to ask.
My best friends say I'm hilarious.
My ex says I'm too smart and generous for my own good.
My boss says I'm far too committed
My nieces say I'm too kind to people who wrong me
My employees say I'm fair

I just got back from a solo trip to Thailand (get your mind out of
the gutter...no hangover 2 here) where I wrestled a tiger, rode an
Elephant, snuck across the border into Laos, One of the first
Americans to enter Myanmar in 30 years (Coincidentally, I was on a
vip diplomatic visa great story), rode a sampan on a river, watched
opium get loaded on a barge, picked and processed rice, I bought a
village a festival and prayed at a temple that housed the 3rd most
treasured relic of the Buddha, all while fending off attacks by
ladyboys. All of this is true. I have pictures
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work full time and I am a full time student. I have returned to
school after an exceptionally long break. I am constantly trying to
improve myself intellectually, spirtually and most recently,
physically. I, like most of my generation, am trying to find
myself. We are somewhere lost in the post cold war - seattle grunge
haze and are at the age where we look back fondly for what was
probably not as good as we remember.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm really good at conversation. While sometimes I am shy at first
and tend to blush, once I warm up I can keep a conversation going
for hours. I am also very adept at empathy. I can relate to almost
anyone and sense when people need a pick me up or pep talk.

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm a weird combination of a shy, outgoing geek with a healthy
splash of dork (Not that private, but really private is for later).
I'm really normal, sometimes to my detriment. I suffer from nice
guy syndrome and tend to be put in the "friend zone" but thats good
because I have made some great friends.
I'm extremely heterosexual and comfortable with who I am. My best
friends are gay and I respect their lifestyle. They have found
people to love and who cares what the hardware is. You have to be
ok with this to be ok for me.
