Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a man trying every day to be better than I was yesterday. I
try, and largely succeed, to treat others as I would be treated. I
am a great friend and loving father. I have a big heart and want to
share it with someone
I have been in the Seattle area for 7 years now. I am a DC native

Help your potential matches find common interests.
books: non fiction, biographies, classic sci-fi

shows: is this tv or theater? i dont watch much tv these days but
