Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am pretty laid back guy looking for a long term
I like to mix it up, and I'm usually out doing something most
nights. I have a couple circles I run in, and I enjoy being someone
they can count on. When I travel (which I love to do), my favorite
part is meeting people from other cultures. Also, I hang out with
cat, Roland, on occasion--he's my role model, I aspire to his
I'm definitely a bit nerdy. I like reading classic novels and
watching art house films. But I enjoy my escapism as well, so I'm
really happy to watch cartoons or see a mindless comedy.
I enjoy cooking, especially a bit of the spicy stuff. My gotos
recently have been chicken curry and pulled pork, but I love
exploring the culinary world. I'm have been moving low carb and
that's a fun challenge.
That's a pretty simple summary right there. What else? I am an INJF
according to the MB what-have-you, but not too strongly in any of
those directions, which means I share characteristics with Mother
Teresa, Nelson Mandela, and Nicole Kidman, but I am much cuter than
all of them.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work for a medium sized publisher managing their web content.
It's a little bit techy and little bit markety, a nice little
medium. It's a nice place to work and keeps the roof over head.
Plus, it's an ever evolving landscape, so that keeps it
challenging. But I'm not really just content with just that. I've
been kicking around the idea of starting up my own company soon;
probably starting as something I do in my spare time, and see where
Trying to be more healthy--eating better and working out more
frequently. Can't decide though if I like morning or evening
So I'm looking to grow, and interested to see where that takes me.
I do love this area and wouldn't mind sticking around, but I am
open for a change. Most importantly, I want to figure that out with
a long term partner, and I'm prepared to be flexible if I need to.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Some people say I'm pretty good at trivia. I like to host it once a
month or so, that's really fun. I'm also pretty into Jeopardy, I
watch a couple times a week.
I like to think I'm pretty good at talking to people and figuring
out how they tick. It's really all about listening.
Some people think I'm good at cooking, but I feel like I still have
lots to learn.

My dashing good looks of course. Most people don't tell you what
they noticed first about you, so you should let me know.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I like a lot of books, but Confederacy of Dunces is usually my
first recommendation, followed by The Name of the Rose. I am a big
Hemingway fan, as well as Hesse, and any number of others from that
I am pretty open when it comes to the movies and music. I like
older movies and foreign flicks, as well as anything that
stimulates my thought muscle, but I will also go in for the bigger
name blockbusters and cute kid films, like Up. Some of my favorite
movies include The Big Lebowski, Crimes and Misdemeanors, and
anything Wes Anderson.
Music I believe is situation appropriate. If I am out having a
drink, then jazz is the best; if I'm driving in the car, I like
something up tempo to keep me awake. 80s music is always
appropriate, especially the more inappropriate the music. If I am
relaxing at home, or throwing a party, I generally like some mellow
music with a fun kick--Slavic Soul Party, anyone?
I like to be adventurous with my food. Spicy is a plus.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. My phone. It's my lifeline, unfortunately.
2. My watch. I need it to tell time, because without it I would
have to look at my phone, or, heaven forbid, a clock. I enjoy being
on time, something that was ground into my skull after four years
of high school football.
3. Friends and family. l like most of them.
4. My car. I'm in love with the little guy.
5. The beach on Lake Michigan. I grew up on this beach, and it is
one of the places that I can I always return to if I need to chill
and rejuvenate myself.
6. my cat Roland. He is just awesome.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I've been thinking about my next career move a lot. What skills
should I pick up? Where am I going to find the time to update my
resume? Should I start a new business? I think about this stuff too
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Doing something new, hopefully. Either out with my friends checking
out some new place or catching a show. But I'm pretty happy just
meeting up and blowing off steam at my local establishment. I like
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't like keeping secrets, but I will tell you that I distrust
really tall people. What are they doing way up there? What secrets
are they keeping from us?
