Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Just got out of a relationship. Keeping my eyes open, but not
rushing into anything.
An important forwewarning.
I am not into playing games at all. I'm 100 percent serious about
seeking a committed relationship online. If your standard process
is to spend a lot of time learning about someone in chat or
messages and then either drop off the face of the earth or second
guess whether you want to meet someone at the last minute, then you
should move along.
I'm a carefree easy going fellow with a passion for art and
technology in all its forms. I like to make people laugh, smile,
and find new ways to enjoy life.
While my job keeps me at my computer, I like to get out and do
things as often as I can. I love to travel and have been to Paris,
London, Amsterdam and all over Germany. Seeing the world is
inspirational to me and I hope to go back again soon.
I find strength through the happiness and beauty around me. They
are elements of life that has kept me strong through many hardships
and never cease to amaze me. Finding the good in any situation has
always been a strength of mine.
I have degrees in Web Design & Graphic Design and am
considering going back to school again in the future for User
Interface and Experience Design.
I like recreational sports like Pool and Bowling and I'm always
good for a game. I've never really been big into playing sports
like football baseball and hockey but appreciate them and can be
occasionally found going to a game.
Summarizing yourself is difficult within a small textbox. I always
have a lot to say and love debate and good conversation. I'm very
open and like sharing information about myself and learning more
about others. If you want to know something specific about me ask,
and I will no doubt answer. I'm big on respect and communication,
even online. Unless someone or something prevents me from doing so,
I will answer your message.
Also, I think my username is ridiculous and would change it If I
knew how lol
Oh yes, and apparently Rewards are being retired, so here is the
one I had since it asked me if i wanted to keep it.

“This guy is sweet, smart, funny and up for trying new things. ”
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
8+ years as a self-employed freelance Web Designer & Developer
has become my primary source of income. I Also sell Website Hosting
and have my own business. I work for various business all over the
world doing website updates but the majority of my clients are in
the Michigan area. I absolutely love my job and hope to take my
business far enough that I can afford to employ people. Every year
I get closer to that goal as business gets better.
I've lived in Michigan all my life, and I can live wherever thanks
to my career, but I would eventually like to live in another State
to see what life is like there if even just for a while. Being a
reliable person is important to me. I can do anything I put my mind
to and right now that's developing lasting financial stability for
my future and any family I may have then or in the future.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Learning, Web Design, Web Development, Graphic Design, Programming,
Disc Golf, Pool, Bowling, other recreational sports, teaching,
making people laugh, enjoying the little things, seeing the light
in any bad situation, problem solving, helping others, video games,
board games, problem solving, making people happy, working towards
goals and well thats what comes to mind first but I'm pretty good
at just about whatever I put my mind too.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Whats the first thing YOU noticed about me? If you tell me, I'll
put it in here. Otherwise, I've been told I look younger then my
age, but I believe its all subjective and I'm more interested in
hearing what you might say.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I used to read a lot of fiction, and by that I mean anything that's
not non-fiction. Nowadays in pursuit of business endeavors I have a
lot of educational books to read so its rare you'll see me read a
book for pleasure. I rarely was able to finish them so I put them
down for a while. There is a healthy list of books I'd like to read
though. I just don't find the time that often. I'm more of a
magazine and occasional short story guy.
Back in the day though I enjoyed the Wheel of Time, Lord of the
Rings, and a Wrinkle in Time. If I had time to read for pleasure
again, I'd probably read the Laural K Hamilton series and the
Movies are really just too broad a range really. I like to watch
Drama and Sci Fi / Fantasy a lot. You'll be hard pressed to find a
movie I won't watch with you. I'll even watch a romantic comedy.
Not my thing, but movies are really about the enjoyment I get while
watching it as opposed to whether or not it was a good movie.
I'm a big fan of Christopher Nolans Movies though and usually can't
pass up a good thriller suspense movie or something that makes me
think. I'm a huge fan of Dexter and Breaking Bad. Now I understand
why my friends like it so much.
Some movie favorites would be, Gran Torino, LoTr, Dark Knight,
Batman Begins, Taken, this is crazy..there's just too many movies.
I think this is a good case for have you seen X where I respond in
kind. Though I have a huge library of movies on blu ray for
viewing. Between that, Hulu Plus and Netflix, there is never a lack
of of something to watch at my place.
Music I will listen to just about anything but country and rap. But
I don't judge people. While its not my thing, I can certainly
respect why people like it. After all I listened to them once. Just
Occasionally I'll give them a chance but music is one of those
things that changes from day to day though I can definitely say
that some of my favorite music genres are Electronica, House,
Industrial, Goa, Dub-step and Metal. It always depends on my mood
I will eat just about anything except for fish ( excluding sushi ).
I really love Italian and Mexican food , though I really like to go
out and eat interesting things and am always on the hunt for a good
place to treat someone to fine dining. I like to see the looks on
peoples faces when they taste some food that is just amazing.
Knowing they might have enjoyed it as much as I did the first time
I had it, makes me happy.
I had Indian recently as well, and Chinese is a big favorite. I
mean other then the staples, I will actively go out of my way to
try new things. As a direct result of that I've had a whole lot of
different cooking. Really dig eating at Martinis Pizza though if
you've been there. I'm always excited to try something new as long
as it doesn't fall into some of the categories that I know I don't
Also really like to make food with people though I'm not very good
at it I make a mean burger. Very simple recipe, but its just so
good! I can make homemade pizza too. having worked at a pizza place
for several years during college, I kinda just figured it
There is a special place in my heart for cheesecake, lemon meringue
pie, red wine, steak and pasta. Just saying.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
In no particular order...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My Future. Business ideas, and projects. how to improve my life.
New technologies. Upcoming releases for any medium. What comes
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Out with friends, or working on a new project. Seeing a movie or
going out with friends. Having company over for movies games and
debate. Gaming online with a friend ( once work is done of course )
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My Epilepsy prevents me from Driving, but I live in a location that
keeps me very close to all the activity in Kalamazoo and rarely
have a problem getting around.
I'm a very open person though, if you're curious just ask. I'm more
than willing to share.
You should message me if
