Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I moved to Austin from Burlington VT in March 2013 and I have been
having a blast getting to know this great city. Whether it be
hiking the greenbelts, discovering cool little swimming holes,
indoor skydiving, or happy hours all over the city, I've been doing
my best to take it all in. I make it a point to act as if I'm a
tourist here in the sense that I don't ever want to take any of
this city for granted.
A healthy lifestyle, including exercise and eating real food, is
important for me and should also be important for you. I more or
less follow a Paleo diet but am happy to indulge when I feel like
it, and I do crossfit to stay in shape.
What I'm looking for:
Chemistry is crucial. If it's not there for both of us, it's
probably not going to work (and it really sucks when it is there
for only one of us. I've been on both sides of that one). Once that
is established, honest communication and a sincere desire to make a
lasting relationship work is imperative from both of us. It's not
fair for one of us to carry the other in this. That's not a real
relationship. And obviously, there's compatibility. If what I
described above does not appeal to you, it's a non-starter.
Ultimately, I want to find an incredible and lasting relationship.
But I've also learned in the years since being divorced that
finding the perfect match at our age is far more complex than it
was back in our 20's. So let's figure out what works and take it
from there. If it turns out the chemistry isn't quite right for
both of us, it's great to have made another friend here in
I'd love to find out who comes up with some of the questions on
this site, or more specifically the choices given for answers. Many
of the questions I felt like in order to pick one of the lame
answers, I'd have to write this big explanation about what I really
meant. Ughh! So in many cases, I just didn't bother.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Moving forward with whatever happens next. I have a great career
and I'm financially stable. I'm a software architect and love my
job, but I mostly leave it behind when I leave the office. My
personal time is important to me. I have friends, family, and fun
but am looking for someone to share it with.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
filling out online dating surveys (Ha! If that were the case, I
guess I wouldn't still be doing this), creative thinking, being a
smart-ass, giving massages, and making espresso/cappuccino.

There aren't very many foods that I don't like, but there are some
things I don't eat often because they don't align with my health
