Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hello, my name is George, and welcome to my cozy, personal area on
Okcupid. Thank you if you're taking time out of your busy day to
check out my profile page. And please feel free to snoop
around--stalking my photos is warranted. I will do my best to
update them periodically.
The difficult task in writing these profile summaries is, what can
I tell you that all the other 'smooth-talking' guys haven't told
you already? What can you really believe from guys here on these
dating sites, except that they want to get into your pants? But I
generally buy my pants at Walmart or Meijer, and unless your's fit
me really good, I'm not interested in getting into them.
So, onto the self-summary... As I stated, my name is George. I'm 37
at the time I'm writing (or re-writing) this summary. I'm a single
dad of two girls who are both 7 and growing up quick. I enjoy being
a dad to my girls and I wouldn't trade it for anything else in the
world. Nothing comes before that. I don't drink alcohol or smoke:
I've never been drunk, high, trashed, smashed, wasted, or
I would say, in general, I'm a pretty laid back kind of guy. I have
an easy-going personality most of the time. And I'm not easily
excitable (I can be pretty quiet unless I have something I think is
important or relevant to say). While I don't get too
over-emotional, I do feel deep and think deep concerning the things
that come up in my experience. I value quality over quantity...
that is, we generally say 'it's the thought that counts'. But it's
not the thought that counts, so much as, the thought you put into
something that counts. In other words, there's a big difference in
being thoughtful and thoughtless. I prefer to be thought-full. And
so I spend a considerable amount of time thinking about things
before I act; although I can be quite spontaneous at times. I find
that I have quite a sense of humor, once I feel comfortable opening
up. My humor ranges from dry to silly to dark. Being an Aquarius I
tend to jump from topic to topic and then back again, all in one
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm currently employed with FedEx Express. I've been there,
altogether, 16 years. I quit for a couple of years when my job was
displaced. But outside of working and being a dad, I have several
passions I'm pursuing; and I hope to make a life doing them
full-time. These passions tend to interconnect with everything else
I'm doing--working and parenting and so on. They include God,
theology, Christianity, philosophy and theory; art; writing; and
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I come equipped with multi-points of articulation. As well as a
highly adaptive, vivid, and lucid, creative imagination. I tend to
manifest my imagination in several ways, including but not limited
to my sense of humor, drawing, writing, and just the general way I
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
If I'm not wearing a hat it's usually the birthmark I have on my
forehead. If I'm wearing a hat, however, then they probably
notice... I don't really know. Perhaps how quiet I can be.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Too many to list. I generally gravitate towards books, movies,
shows, music and food that moves me in a spiritually significant
way. Whether it's religious or secular or geeky.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Sense of humor
Healthy amount of alone time
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
If my girls are home on the weekend then my time is spent with
them. If my girls are gone for the weekend then my time is spent
alone, working on writing, art, or studying something. Alone time
is enormously important to me.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Even as a guy I'm of a more progressive mind. If you think or feel
you need a man in order to feel validated or completed; or if you
want to be spoiled like a princess; if you need constant and
continual excitement, entertainment, instant gratification; if you
have kids and put your men first; or if you have a bad relationship
with your family, or your family is unstable; AND, if you have not
discovered your inner geek/nerd/dork... then I'm not going to be
the guy for you.
Also, if you're a more conservative Christian, a literalist
Christian, and you believe literally that the Bible is God's
infallible Word; and you believe Jesus is exclusively God
incarnated in the flesh--he died and was risen for our sins: then
I'm not going to be the Christian guy for you.
If you're a biget, homophobe, mean spirited, or just an idiot: I'm
not going to be the kind of guy for you. If you hate kids and kid
related things, then I'm not going to be the guy for you.
For everyone else, feel free to message me. If you just want to
talk or vent or you need advice; or you want to talk about the
latest geek thing, I'm all ears.
