Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
A little about me.... The first thing you should know is that I
have two amazing daughters (14 & 7) that are the world to me
and come before anything else in my life. I share custody 50/50
with their mother. No drama there, we've been friends 20 years and
continue to be such. I am a transplanted yankee, but I have lived
in the Triangle since 1999. I am very easy going and hard to
offend. I am extremely active, to the tune of about 10-15 hours
playing sports every week (mostly ultimate Frisbee or at the rock
gym). Any time spent outside is time well spent. Set me up in a
hammock with a good book and I am set for the day. I do enjoy going
out to eat, but I LOVE to cook. I am very giving, I bend over
backwards to ensure that the people I love are comfortable. I also
really enjoy being close, there is plenty of room for both of us on
What am I looking for? I am looking for someone that is confident
in themselves. The girl running around sweaty on the field turns my
head faster than the cheerleader dolled up on the sidelines. As I
said, my girls are the world to me so you have got to be at least
comfortable around children (don't worry, I am not going to involve
them in any of this until we are serious). I am not jumping out of
my skin to be in a serious relationship, I want to know you first.
Outside of that I am pretty open. I am always up to try something
(mostly legal) that I have not tried before especially if it is
This is a nice start, but the only way to know me is to talk to me.
I am very open and am not afraid to talk to you, send me a message
so we can share more.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Besides being Daddy? I just left a career in banking (glad to
elaborate) to start a career as a network engineer.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I am a great friend. Pretty good at Scrabble, and word games in
general. Most anything that involves logic. I am good at ultimate
Frisbee too, though my older daughter tells me I am "too old to
play anything that starts with ultimate".
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My demeanor, I am incredibly even tempered and there is very little
that shakes that.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books that take me away from reality and have deep characters, if
it is a long series even better. I usually don't like when the
story ends. I am game to watch any kind of movie. I enjoy all kinds
of shows, live music, art shows and craft shows in particular. My
Zune has a very wide range of music on it and my favorite artist is
Van Morrison. My favorite food is crabs, Chesapeake Bay blue crabs
cooked MD style to be precise. FYI there is a great little place in
Wake Forest called Backfins that does them "all you can eat" (not a
great first date though, unless you like your date to be messy and
smell like old bay).
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My girls (in case you haven't caught on yet)
My Kitchen (it is my favorite room)
My wits (yes, pull the plug, please)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was
the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted
to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t
understand the assignment and I told them they didn’t understand
life. ~ John Lennon
We come to love not by finding a perfect person, but by learning to
see an imperfect person perfectly. ~ Sam Keen
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Hanging out with my daughters getting ready for whatever fun we
decided on for that weekend. Otherwise I am hanging from the
boulder at TRC (been a while for the rock gym, getting back to it
