Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
A way left leaning nature boy that likes to bite off more than he
I've lived one year in Hollywood (not fun), three years in Pistol
river (lotsa fun) and the rest of the time I've been here in
Portland (Home). I'm on here to take more of an active role in
finding a partner, I usually just pick from who picks me as I'm a
little shy. I've been getting better about approaching women in
"real life" but you can't beat the numbers here (I'm kind of a
numbers/science guy). I'm mainly looking to make some new friends
and create new social circles, be nice to find that special someone
but in the past cupids arrow has always hit me in the ass. I'm a
little difficult to describe, .My greatest personal rewards come
from helping others and if I can incorporate that into what I'm
doing it helps to motivate me. I see my neighborhood as my tribe,
think learning is forever, dig my organic garden, honest
(brutally), good team player (obviously missing a team), my word
and my heart are both gold, love plants and animals and I eat them
both, handy, faithful, funny, cute and a living contradiction in a
lot of ways.
I'm looking for a friend/lover that balances me and while physical
attraction is important my favorite feature has always been the
brain. Also looking for honesty (harder to find than I though but
not too jaded yet), organization (I lack that) and loyalty (who
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Recently returned to Portland from living off grid on the southern
coast of Oregon. While living out my childhood dream was an
experience I wouldn't change, I do believe city living done right
can be more sustainable. Since I've been back I've opened a
business with that thought in mind. It's not going to make me rich
but I do get a lot out of it. I've been working more hours than I
would like but recently am taking time off to do some traveling,
work on the house/garden and maybe do a little dating.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Pretty good at most things but really good at just a few:
making people laugh
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
The eyes are most mentioned but who really knows?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I read mostly text books and how to's....not much fiction but Dr.
Seuss is a genius.
I like movies...couple favorites off the top of my head; Charlie
and the chocolate factory, shawshank, usual suspects....not big on
horror or most sci fi, loved "the thing" though.
No tv but kinda miss the OPB, I believe we're getting programed
more than watching programs.
I like most music...not big on techno or the bible rock.
I love food and I eat most everything, probably what I missed most
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I'd rather not do without:
good food (my garden)
community (the tribe)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My brain is constantly going, easier to list what I don't spend a
lot of time thinking about.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
No clue but I like to do things during the week when it's less
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I prefer to smoke "herb" over drinking alcohol (neither is a
problem), just works better for me. I don't mind if you drink and
every once in a while I'll join you but to be honest drunk people
annoy me. So if you're a "drinker", like to get drunk often and say
things like, "you can't control me" as you make an ass of yourself
in front of my friends than I think we should break up now. I'll
take a pass on anyone with harder habits as well.
....and I've never been to prison.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
...you would like to meet me. If I'm interested I'm going to want
to meet right away. While computers are great for screening
people....I think they suck as a way to get to know someone.
