Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
**To start EVEN THOUGH I OWN A HOUSE IN INDIANA, I WORK IN CHICAGO
AND SPEND MOST OF MY TIME THERE. I was born and raised on the
Southside near Midway and my office is still there. My family and
friends are all in Chicago so if you're a Chicago girl I'll come to
you gladly so don't be put off by the Indiana thing. I moved out
here for the low taxes and the land.**
NOW... Onto the summary stuff.
People have told me I have a passion for life and I suppose that is
the best way to summarize myself.
I can't abide a life where you get up, go to work, go home, go to
bed, and then do it all over again over and over and over again
until you're dead. I tend to live for the NOW as opposed to the
LATER. Why wait? Why not? For me there is no good reason to hold
back on anything. If I want it I get it, if I need to see it I go
see it, if I want to do it I do it. The idea that I'll do it later
doesn't sit well with me. What if there isn't a later? What if I
get hit by a bus tomorrow?
So there's a self summary for you -- I live passionately every day
fearing that I will be run down by a bus.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
"Living the Dream"
What does that mean? For starters it’s a great way to start a
conversation as it’s a pretty innocuous statement that can mean
just about anything. It can be both hopeful and uplifting on those
days when you feel like King of the World while also being wry and
sarcastic on the days when you are eating a s**t sandwich.
Therefore just about any day of the week, for better or for worse,
I am living the dream.
I have a career that I kind of fell into though in reality it feels
right. As a man who has walked many paths I can tell you that this
is the one that feels like I am supposed to be on it, like I found
my calling. Professionally (or lack thereof) I am a salesman and
that works as I can talk, listen, eat, and drink with the best of
them and that’s about all you really need. A certain charisma works
I own a few acres out here in Merrillville though how I came to be
here is a story best saved for telling over a glass of wine or a
nice single malt scotch one to two dates in. The moral of the story
though is don’t enter into a peeing contest with your friends
unless you want to end up with two turkeys living in your driveway
and a LOT of grass to cut!
The house is here but a temporary thing. In my head I see renting
the place out and moving back towards Chicago or some other far off
land if fortune favors it.
I made some new friends recently which I am really proud to have
and they set me about this OKcupid site with the goal of finding a
girlfriend so I am determined to give it my best.
Finally I am looking forward to the day when I am my own boss. I am
a pretty strong willed guy and very much a “Don’t Tread on Me” type
so for me the end all be all would be being gainfully self-employed
and doing the whole “American Dream” thing yada yada yada. Perhaps
having someone erect some sort of monument to me upon my death.
Modesty is one of my strong suites though I will admit I suffer
from occasional dreams of grandeur.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Intangibles mostly. I am a man of few technical skills per-say but
darn good at getting those people to do things for me and whatever
cause I happen to be working on at the time.
I suppose I am an organizer and a visionary and those talents work
I am like the John Henry of cracking crab legs. Give me a freshly
steamed tower of snow crab and I'll out crack any machine or
contraption and when I'm done my heart won't break either.
I also am a fair dancer and am always chasing my Fred Astaire
moment when the crowd parts and the spot light falls into the
circle as my partner and I step into it to dazzle and amaze.

Since December 11' upon seeing a man with an excellent handlebar
mustache I myself have been pursuing mustache excellence.
Subsequently people notice my own handlebar and I often receive
compliments and requests to touch it.

A Good Band
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I have a dream to retire to a big house by the Atlantic Ocean in
Nova Scotia, Canada. Sitting on my wrap around porch looking out at
the waves while a steely grey sky looms overhead I'll sip a mug of
hot cider with a spot of whiskey in it and enjoy the warmth of my
wool sweater as it guards me against the crisp breeze coming off
Of course before I can get to that elaborate day dream there are
lots of things to think about so that I can get there in the
Thus I think about the more mundane as well as the fanciful like
cutting the grass and winning the lottery.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Generally OUT and unwinding from the week.
Out to dinner with friends is a great option. I know of a place
that does all you can eat lobster on a Friday night and another
that does all you can eat King Crab legs. Nothing like honoring the
brave men from Deadliest Catch by enjoying the fruits of their
I am a HUGE fan of burlesque cabarets and there are always one or
two of those to be found on a Friday.
Finally catching a live band that I can dance to is a great way to
welcome in the weekend.

recent thing but I definitely think that's a type for me!
