Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I insist on enjoying my life. I try not to take myself too
seriously, and I have a lot of fun. That said, I am highly
ambitious, have a five year plan, and am a single father of two...
I'm a Chicagoan born and raised. I love this city. I live in
Lakeview now. I grew up and currently work in Lincoln Park. My
office is a few blocks from my parents' place, and I shamelessly
use my lunch break to raid their fridge on the regular. My family
is very important to me.
I enjoy going to concerts, checking out comedy shows, going to the
movies, watching Netflix with my cats, and dancing. I am about to
start a class at Second City.
Basically, I'm a total stereotype - just one of those recovering
addict, bisexual, ex-frat, cat-loving freight brokers you're always
reading about in the news and seeing on TV.
My purpose for being on here is to date and have fun whether that
leads to a relationship that lasts a few hours, days, weeks, or
years. I'm not here to just chat. I want to meet people in real
life, have fun, make some mistakes, and have some experiences.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Watching Netflix with my cats.
I'm actively working on building a career. I've been at my company
for a year and really enjoy the work I do.
I spend a lot of time hanging out with my friends: playing
volleyball at the beach, dancing at clubs, and getting pancakes at
midnight. I also am working on getting a stand-up routine ready to
start hitting open mics.
I'm highly active in a recovery community, and that takes up a lot
of my time. It's totally worth it. Also, totally necessary.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Cooking, making people laugh, and getting into the perfect amount
I'm also really good at my job. Public speaking. Being shameless.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My cats, my watch, pancakes, Netflix, and recovery.
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?
drop by the house to get in some QT with the cats, then out to meet
friends to dance or get pancakes or go to a meeting.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I had a sign made for my apartment reading "no scatplay". I also
made it the name of my wifi. The dude at the store thought I was
fucking nuts as did my neighbors I can only assume, which I kinda
am! If i think something is seriously funny, I'll take it way too
I went to math camp... twice.
I've mentioned recovery a few times. Been clean over a year - I
don't drink or do drugs at all. I don't mind being around alcohol
or going to bars. Would rather steer clear of drugs and going to
trap houses. My vices are cigarettes (though I'm trying to
knockitoff with those) and caffeine.
Also, I mentioned that I'm bi. I'm not confused. Just bi. So, say

You're in recovery. It would be wonderful to find someone who also
has some clean time and understands my experience. Totally not
necessary. However, current users of hard drugs need not
