Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi! I’m Denys … COMPLETE rewrite of the profile, first talk about
me & then about you
I am an introvert, meaning that though I am social and get-along
with near anyone, it uses-up a lot of my energy … as a result, I am
a homebody and tend to keep to myself a lot. I am loyal,
introspective, respectful, and thoughtful, with a curious mind; as
a result of my curiosity, I tend to research & read about
whatever crosses my mind, then combined with a good memory I am
very good at understanding a lot of different relationships, such
as politics related to the car industry to the economy to whatever.
I like to spend time outdoors when the weather is nice – from a
bike ride to just working in the garage – and a few of my hobbies
are reading, cars & classic cars, “infrastructure,” and
photography. It doesn’t bother me if you are taller than me, but
respecting your wishes I won’t initiate contact if I am shorter
than the minimum height you state on your profile.
You are intelligent & thoughtful with a level mind. You have
some interests of your own, are willing to share them, and realize
it’s OK that if I don’t enjoy a few of your interests as much as I
do, same as I realize you may not enjoy a few of mine as much as I
do. I (obviously) would like you to be attractive, but realize that
*my* definition of attractive doesn’t “toe the line” of what
popular culture says should be attractive.
It doesn’t hurt to send me a message – ask me a question about
something above or just say “hi” – or to reply to me; the worst
that can happen is one of us respectfully says we’re not interested
& we go our separate ways, right?
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
By day, writing test procedures at Westinghouse -- I occasionally
get a message from women in the Far East, I think it has to do with
I mentioned my employer -- and by night, relaxing or researching
something with the car or (see above)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
- subtle humor
- natural curiosity
- planning trips
- being flexible
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I look young for my age (though not many good photos of me because
I have a talent of shutting my eyes right before the shutter
shuts/image snapped), quiet, shy, sense of humor
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I don't read books that often anymore, newspaper & magazines
seem to be my fill at the moment ... but my favorite books were
written by Dickens, Twain, Heinlein, or Philip K. Dick
Empire Records, Rocknrolla, Hopscotch, Interstate 60, Le Mans, and
Super Troopers ... haven't heard of one, a few, or all? That's ok,
something for us to discuss!
rock, country (banjos are cool!), polka (accordions are cool!),
some classical ... a bit eclectic, whatever fits my mood
I like to grill, otherwise go for easy -- yet balanced -- recipes.
I'm semi-adventurous for new foods, prefer someone there to
interpret what I'm seeing on the menu
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
- a periodic Doritos fix
- ability to remember small details that will make you melt at the
- timer in the kitchen
... and still deciding on the other 3
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
- too much about work and what I "need to get done," either at work
or at home
- whether self-declared "open-minded" individuals realize the irony
when they themselves exhibit close-minded behavior
- why didn't she reply back?
- why is she wearing sunglasses in all of her photos?
- do her friends know she is using them as wingmen in her
- hmm ... okcupid says i sent her a message 5.5 years ago ...
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
relaxing ... I typically use Friday nights to recharge a bit after
the week, so if at work we've had a Happy Hour I'm coming home a
bit later than usual and then resting or making preps for any "big"
things I want to do during the weekend
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
... at the moment? I avoid walking on any grates in sidewalks or
curbs, be they for sewers, ventilation, or what-have-you ... just
superstitious that way
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I think a good woman for me is either of equal intelligence or
smarter than me -- *but* doesn't lord it over me -- and is
