Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm Chris. A good friend of mine found her husband on this site and
convinced me to make a profile. Honestly, I never really know what
to write in these 'describe yourself in a box' essays. If you want
to know something specific about me, just ask.
That being said, I am an old-school gentleman who puts faith and
family at the forefront of my life. I enjoy kayaking, ice skating/
roller blading, constructing custom LEGO's, mini golfing, tubing
and building camp fires. I enjoy exercising when my work schedule
will allow for it and I tell the most awful puns you'll ever
I'm searching for a co-pilot, a partner in crime, the Bonnie to my
Clyde; I'm just a Han Solo looking for my Princess Leia.
My perfect date night: I pick you up in my Kia Sorrento.
You get in. There are candles in the car.
You go, "...Is that dangerous?" and I go, "Yes-but I like
We go to your favorite restaurant and have a fantastic meal.
We come outside and see my car's on fire.
You go, "Chris, your car's on fire! Aren't you upset?"
I pull out a bag of marshmallows and say, "No, I knew this was
And then we passionately kiss in front of my burning car.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I graduated from the University of Texas with a structural
engineering degree. I've passed the certification exam to earn my
E.I.T. license, (similar to the MCAT, but for engineers).
I am working as a structural design engineer for a firm here in
Austin that specializes in the construction of large-scale steel
and concrete structures. It requires long hours but soon I will be
a fully-licensed professional engineer and can start work on my
dooms day device, er, I mean...
I consider myself to be kind, chivalrous and honest; I have a
strong and mind but a gentle heart. I want someone who loves to
laugh but isn’t afraid to cry either. Right now, I'm looking for
someone to be my best friend to ultimately become something more; I
believe that the best relationships have friendship at their
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making people laugh (ask me for a joke)
Building LEGO's (less of a hobby; more of an obsession)
mowing the lawn
sweeping you off your feet ;)
The first things people usually notice about me

I've been told that I remind people of Jim Halpert.

extinction of the cro magnon man.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm super mysterious...or am I?
I usually work 60 hour weeks, ergo I have ventured into the strange
world of online dating. However, if anyone ever says, "Awwww you're
such a cute couple! Where did you meet?" we will need an elaborate
and convincing back story about how I rescued you and all the
children from a burning orphanage while riding a gryphon and
playing a heavy-metal love ballad.
