Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
A wise man once said, "Before you marry a person, you should first
make them use a computer with slow internet to see who they really
are." That wise man was Will Ferrell.

But short of bringing a 23andMe kit to our first date, let me try
describing myself the old fashion way - I love the outdoors; I
enjoy hiking, skiing, mountain biking, and playing outdoor
volleyball. I'm well-educated, career-oriented, and constantly
think I don't read enough. I've also been told that I'm musically
gifted (I play the piano, the cello, and salsa dance).
I have a positive outlook on life and am always optimistic towards
every challenge. That, I attribute to my loving family and an
healthy upbringing (Ah ha! DNA does come into play, after all). I'm
also very outgoing and surround myself with good people. Oh, and I
consider myself a great conversationist.
What I’m doing with my life

stories so it's a huge plus if you have some to share!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Long walks on the beach. No seriously, most guys aren't - I
shouldn't have to tell you ;)

Maybe they're both half full?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Happy about how I've exhausted myself in the course of the week to
the point I can't go out any more.
