Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Just a guy geek who loves to bike around the city.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm enjoying work. My job requires me to learn a lot, and to be
creative in an engineering kind of way. Although I would enjoy
working less than 40 hours a week, there are bills to pay :( I'm
also playing Irish music, so I tend to practice a little every day.
Otherwise, I'm still trying to get settled into Boston and to keep
seeing more of the city. I've been here almost four years, and I
feel like I've seen so very little!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Okay, how do I answer this without sounding conceited :) I'm very
good at mechanical stuff like repairing cars (although I'll be
happy to pay someone else to do this after many years of doing it
myself) and bikes (more relevant since I pretty much go everywhere
by bike now). Once I get some more practice I'll consider myself
fairly good at music. And my job of course, a mix of computer
programming and electrical engineering.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'll stick with the obvious: I'm tall. Other than that I've never
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Steinbeck, Hemingway, Louise Erdrich, Vidal; Movies:
Anything Wallace and Grommit, Princess Bride (I know, hardly
weighty stuff), Modern Times (I'll think of more :) Shows: I assume
they mean TV? I don't have much time to watch TV, but I do like to
watch The Daily Show on my computer when I have some free time.
Music: Classical (I've found that I really like Shostakovich),
Traditional Irish (I like to play this, but rarely listen to it),
Jazz (Anything on the Windham Hill Label before BMG bought it, and
Swing like Ella and Louie!), Contemporary Folk (Including the angst
filled female singer/songwriter genre of which Boston is at the
forefront ;) Rock and Pop through the ages (Especially stuff from
the 60's for some odd reason?) Food: I'm vegetarian. I'll go for
anything spicy and ethnic as long as it is meatless.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Dark Chocolate (70% cocoa minimum, better than 85 % preferably:)
Peanut Butter (Only peanuts without salt. No fake stuff for me!) My
bike (I almost dislike getting into a car now, except of course on
really cold, rainy days.), musical instruments (Though I really
only play one of them), I'd like to say a significant other, but
obviously this is untrue or I wouldn't be writing this! I need a
sixth! I'll think of something... My needs are few :)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How much I want to do that I don't have enough time for!!!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I lead a boring life! Friday nights are the same as most nights
during the week. I take a music class Saturday morning, so I tend
to practice. As I've made friends here I do get out more. :)
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you are a politically liberal, vegetarian atheist who likes to
get around the city by bike, foot, or public transit, definitely!
If you are a politically moderate, fruit and vegetable centric
agnostic who doesn't think cycling around the city is weird we
could get along. If you are a Tea Partying, steak craving Baptist
who prefers to drive a monster truck, I don't think so! This should
give a idea of where I fall on the spectrum :)
