Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
How would I describe myself? A humble, personable, down-to-earth,
kind-hearted soul who loves the sound (and experience) of laughter,
who is more introvert than extrovert (but the opposite among good
company) and who dearly loves his two boys.
I love the outdoors and especially enjoy hiking and biking. Great
Falls for the former and WOD trail for the latter.
One of my passions is soccer, and World Cup soccer in particular. I
traveled to Italy in '90 and France in '98 to see the action and
absorb as much of the local culture as possible in three-week
stints. (I do love to travel but have done very little since my
children were born.)
Must confess that I haven't done a lot of local exploring, so that
is something I would hope you are up for. I know a lot of hot spots
for young boys, but would love a willing companion for day and
Would like to think that I'm a good communicator, but past
experience has shown that I'm a miserable failure at mind reading.
I value open and honest communication and would hope that you do as
well. Other qualities I seek in a partner are kindness, warmth,
sense of humor and compassion.
I enjoy good beer and wine but don't drink all that frequently. I
root for New England and DC teams equally, but my favorite team is
DC United (season ticket holder for many years).
I don't watch much television, but I get it if you enjoy your shows
and would be willing to share in that experience.
A word about my marital status - if you're still reading - I've
been separated for 3 years from the mother of my children, have an
amiable co-parenting relationship with her and expect to finally
make it legal in 2014.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Helping raise two young, impressionable boys (ages 8 and 11). Am
now looking for a partner to share in the wonders of this life.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Soccer, spelling, word games, back rubs, hugs.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't have a remote clue - my blue eyes, salt and pepper hair,
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Classics such as Animal Farm, the Harry Potter series and
other young adult fiction read with my boys.
Movies: Shawshank Redemption, Love Actually, Lord of the Rings
trilogy, Good Will Hunting, Sound of Music, The Sting, When Harry
Met Sally to name but a few.
Shows: Don't watch much television, but Seinfeld is my all-time
favorite. I enjoy Dexter, Modern Family, Daily Show, Colbert Report
and old British comedies such as Fawlty Towers.
Music: Not very up on contemporary music but that will change soon
now that I have a middle schooler. Like 80's music, classic rock,
singer songwriters like James Taylor and classical.
Food: Especially like Thai and seafood, but my palate is very
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Apart from the basic hierarchy of needs, the six things that I
could never do without are the following: my boys, my family (3
siblings and 27 first cousins), good friends, laughter, home-made
fudge, indoor plumbing and the changing of the seasons. Whoops,
that's seven things.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How I can raise my boys to be confident, capable and compassionate
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Hanging with my boys or vegging with a book, but I hope to add you
to the equation - at least ahead of the books.
