Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Here's the cliffnotes to the most recent chapter in my life: I
moved here from Sacramento (grew up in Midwest) to earn my Master's
degree and decided to stick around after I graduated. I didn't
really know anyone down here so it's been an adventure so far. I'm
still learning what the area has to offer and would love a tour
guide. I've been in SoCal since 2007, but recently moved to Eagle
If I were to step outside of myself and describe me as a friend, I
would probably say that I'm a funny guy, passionate about the
things I care about, loves fun, loves discovering something new
everyday, loves excessive use of commas and run-on sentences. I see
nothing wrong with ending a sentence in a preposition (I tried to
think of a witty way to do it with this sentence but couldn't think
of a preposition to end it on).
I love just about anything that makes me laugh whether its a movie,
a show, a friend, a really bad knock-knock joke, or an awesome
mullet at a hockey game. I check online to see who is playing at
local comedy clubs or live music venues weekly. People tell me my
sense of humor ranges from witty and intelligent to 15-year-old boy
humor depending on my target listener and current mood. I take
pride in my ability to laugh at life and laugh at myself. I would
love to meet someone who can make me laugh and isn't afraid to pick
I'm a pretty open-minded guy and accepting of most lifestyles. I've
lived a lot of places growing up and met many different walks of
life. I think I can fit in with just about any crowd.
I get my news from the Jon Stewart and Bill Maher. I love
independent music more than commercial radio but usually listen to
podcasts but usually only when I'm driving alone(any suggestions?).
I'm trying to learn more about wines...apparently the stuff in the
box just doesn't cut it for a romantic evening.
About you: loves to have fun, loves to explore and learn something
new, loves guys who are a little nerdy, loves intentionally bad
jokes, loves to talk and get to know people whether it be as a
match or a friend. I'm pretty tall (tall enough for you to wear
heels). Basically I'm looking for someone I can be myself around
and hopefully you can be yourself around me.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I moved down here in 2007 for grad school and stuck around. I live
in Eagle Rock and work as a physical therapist in Pasadena.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Jeopardy (but only Celebrity and high school tournaments), cooking
food that probably I only like, I make pretty darn good sangria if
you are patient enough to wait for it to sit overnight. I'm also
good at remembering random stuff that doesn't apply to anything
useful in life. Singing Michael McDonald songs (but not getting the
Now for a list of things that I am NOT good at:
-fake accents (though I have a little Midwestern one naturally, but
usually just when I drink)
-jumping in a pool and looking graceful
-picking out eyeglasses
-taking a good picture with my phone
-looking cool while throwing a football (I was more of a soccer
player growing up)
-having a picture taken of me without making some sort of face

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Movies: all-time favorites are Breakfast Club, The Jerk,

will boycott Hollywood forever). I love comic Book Movies, most
comedies, and an occasional bad early 90's action flick.

Music: Pearl Jam, Against Me, Gaslight Anthem, and lots of punk
bands I don't feel like listing here.
Food: I love to BBQ and try to have lots of people over at least a
few times a year to feed their faces. I'll try almost anything at
least once. Pretty much anything except coconut and raisins.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Comedy, friends, sleep timer on my tv, learning, white noise,
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?
Typical Friday stuff: Eating out with friends, grabbing a drink,
seeing a show, or snuggling on my couch in my pajamas with my
stuffed toy cat Mr. Freckles (that last part isn't entirely true)

go explore the world.
