Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Personally, I think this is one of the most overrated activities
associated with online dating sites, unless you're trying to see if
someones capable of formulating complete sentences. However, since
I have no problem complying, here goes.
I like taking photographs as well as traveling especially back
east. I also do my best to stay physically fit since time doesn't
go backwards except once a year (some of you will get that at three
in the morning lol). Although I don't get out as much as I would
like that will soon change since I finally graduated (Gerontology)
from grad school (Class of '14). I enjoy going to sporting events,
comedy shows, and live music venues (ie..Yoshi's). As you may
already know, some things are better enjoyed when you're in the
midst of good company (preferably of the opposite sex). I prefer
being in the company of people who are quick witted with a sense of
humor that's harmlessly sarcastic.
I've found being socially conscious is a nice tool to have and a
great ice breaker since there's so much we can do to improve the
world or our community even if our world/community is perfect (to
us). I also seem to connect well with people who are aware of the
gifts life has afforded us. If you're the type who cherishes the
moment and are grateful for what you have as well as don't have, I
think we'll have some interesting and exciting things to talk
about. If people at the bottom of exit ramp holding signs irritates
you then we probably won't have much in common or have the same
attitude of gratitude. On the other hand, if that's not the case
then I think that's a great start for now and a whole heck of a lot
more than some marriages have been built on.
Lastly, "Life isn't measured by the number of breaths you take but
rather by the number of moments that takes your breathe away."
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Trying to enjoy it (life that is) to the best of my ability. In
fact, I'm just getting started. Get in where you fit in.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Listening and allowing people to be themselves. Setting goals and
reaching them. Most recent goal and accomplishment was completing
my Masters degree in Gerontology. I'll probably pursue a Ph.D aka
'player hatin degree'. Hahaha! Somehow it just doesn't seem right
not too! Some might say, I'm a gluten for punishment. I like to
think of it as, 'Driven'.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Smile, style and stature.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. God/Spirituality for those who'll, sadly enough, engage in snap
judgement over the 'G' word.
5. Literature to read
Although this may not be the most creative, out-of-the-box list,
it's six of the most important things I can think of at the moment.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How not to forget how blessed I am to have the family, friends and
support I've been so fortunate to have throughout my life. aka....
How to remain grateful!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Looking for something to do on a Friday night..........What can I
say, the spoils of living a wonderfully boring lifestyle (the
essence of which is drama free). lol
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Once I admit it then it would no longer be private. Besides, do you
really think I would actually admit something I consider to be
private to a bunch of complete cyber strangers? :-)
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are confident and know who you are. You don't have any
unresolved hang-ups or psychological baggage. I get along and have
had relationships with the most unusual suspects. That was only
because I'm comfortable with who I am, which I strive to improve on
each and every day mainly by challenging my biases and assumptions.
If you're looking to have a great time and enjoy what life has to
offer rather than what we may or may not share in common, I invite
you to reach out. For those who say they're looking for someone who
they have something in common, life has much more to offer and
enjoy than simply the things we are mutually interested in. I
realize that of ten who'll read this maybe one will reply, which is
super intentional. Some may get that at 3am in the morning. Hahaha!
By the way, I think I forgot to mention that a sense of humor is
absolutely necessary. If you made it this far, I encourage you to
not be shy and reach out as the rest is gravy. If not, then be well
and good luck with your search. :-)
Who are you looking for?
This helps us know who to show you on OkCupid.
