Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Life is really simple, but we insist on making it
I enjoy doing just about anything, as long as it is in the right
company. Theater to basketball, running to snuggling on a couch,
reading to jumping out of airplanes... You name it, I'll do it. I
enjoy camping, hiking, live local music venues, sporting events,
special events and festivals, volunteering, and hanging around the
house. I may get a dog again if I don't find someone to snuggle
I worked with kids for 12 years for a non-profit, then left to go
back to school. For the time being, I work in sales. I just
recently finished my Bachelors. I know what I want to do with it,
but not the exact capacity or organization. I don't want my career
to define every aspect of who I am. I've learned that I have to
make time for me, and that means for "you," too.
I definitely want to find the right woman and settle down... but I
have settled down with the wrong woman before, and I don't really
want to do that again. Rather than feel things out for a long time,
if I know it's not going to work I'm gonna cut the losses for both
of us. I'm not done following my heart, but I am thinking about
things a lot more nowadays.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Living it. I have a hopelessly romantic go with the flow kinda
mentality. That does not mean I don't have goals, dreams, and plans
of making both of those achievable... I have all that stuff bottled
up, and I think about it and act on it, but I live in the
I volunteer at least a few times a week for an hr or so. I'm slowly
teaching myself to play the guitar. I like to read and write
poetry. I'm an avid skydiver, and have been for many years. My
perfect match doesn't have to jump, but would need to be open to my
doing it. I exercise pretty regularly, and push it to run a 1/2
marathon or Tough Mudder every once in a while. I'm quite a good
cook, which is great because I love to cook. I'm doing the sales
gig right now. It pays the bills, but I'm in active pursuit of a
non-profit management career. I hope it works, because I signed my
life into debt for student loans :-)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making myself laugh
Making others laugh, just not as often
Trying new things
Remembering quotes, and then forgetting them before I can say them.

So, I asked around for this one. The consensus was voice first,
eyes second. Both were because it made them feel comfortable with
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I like to read pretty much anything, if for totally different
reasons. Personal fave is The Sicilian by Mario Puzo. Pretty much
the same with movies, but I especially like good war movies, and
Saving Private Ryan is my favorite. If I spent the evening with
someone I really wanted to be with, the sappiest romantic comedy
could become my favorite movie because of the good time I had
watching it with her. I'm a little selective with music on my mp3
player: a mixture of alternative, R&B, indie rock, rap,
classical rock, and even a tiny bit of pop. When it comes to food I
eat just about anything except liver and radishes. Especially
anything spicy. A few favorites are Sushi, Thai, Indian, and
Italian from The Hill.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Hope - I'd make some up if I didn't have it.
At least a few loved ones - I'd meet new ones if I lost mine.
Water - ummm, I'd boil or purify water from somewhere.
Food - I remember from a survival class how to make a pretty decent
salad from field greens.
Oxygen - Yeah, nothing I can do about that one.
Music - I'd start singing and making my own!
A close 7th is NPR. I've been a member for 10 years.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What could be. What I've learned today. What challenges I am
facing, and how to overcome them. What are a few bright sides to
every dark thing that happens. How can I reduce the amount that I
over analyze things.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Working, then hanging out with friends or sleeping because I have
big plans on Saturday. Or driving somewhere for the weekend.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

That isn't really the guy from Breaking Bad in my picture. That was
me on Halloween.
