Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a guy that's moved back to MA from RI and looking to meet
people. I'm one of those guys that's a little quiet at first, but
once I open up, I'll talk to you like I've known you for years.
Personality-wise, I tend to have a somewhat snarky sense of humor
and love to make someone laugh with an odd comment or well-placed
zinger. On the inside, I'm just a big teddy bear at heart. I
believe in trust, honesty, loyalty, and love. These are not words,
but concepts I hold dear. I'm definitely a gamer hobby-wise and
utterly love to engage in a board, card, or computer game. I love
the interactivity, social and critical thought aspects of them. I'm
a bit of a homebody, but slowly working on getting out more and
Professionally, I work as a QA Engineer at a company that makes
mobile software. I'm hoping to grow with the company and enjoy what
I do. I'm not looking for someone to support me nor am I looking
for someone that wants me to support her. I also do not live my
life around my work. Once I'm home, barring an emergency, work
stays at work. I think it's important to have a good work-life
My ideal match would also enjoy games (or at least give them a
chance). They'd teach me about things they're passionate about.
They'd be someone caring and loving, but with a twinkle of mischief
in their eyes. They'd be happy going out or staying in with a
movie. They'd have a good sense of humor, yet be ready to shoot me
"the look" when one of my attempts at a joke fails (they can't all
be winners!). Overall, someone that's looking to start at a
friendship and just see where things lead.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a QA Engineer at a mobile software company. I help test new
applications we make for clients. I just started there about a year
ago after working in the video game industry. Ideally, in the next
five years, I'll buy a condo or house, find someone and hopefully
get married. Maybe even have a child or adopt.
Additionally, I've been working on improving myself. I've been
trying to eat better and been working to expand my social circle
and break out of my little Introvert self a bit (thus one of the
reasons I'm here!). Baby steps, but think both things will pay off
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Remembering weird bits of trivia and random lines from movies.
*shrug* My gift and my curse. lol
I also am a good listener and (I'd like to think) give good advice.
That said, I probably should take my own more often.
I'm good a making people smile and laugh, even if it means making a
bit of a fool out of myself.

I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My sense of humor, I think.
Other guesses would be my glasses, my cane (yes, I use one getting
around for now), or my facial hair.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My Friends & Family
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
All kinds of things, from the next sarcastic one-liner I'm going to
throw out there to politics and everything in between.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Lately, home relaxing after work or out with friends doing
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't like being stuck in traffic in tunnels. I know it's safe,
but still freaks me out a little. I'm a cancer survivor. I'm an
amputee (lower left leg) and walk with a cool prosthetic. I hate
butterscotch and coconut. I once caught a fish after tying a worm
on a hook (I was young and didn't want to stab it). I managed to
dislocate a knee playing mini-golf (you can't teach that level of
talent). I have friends online that are closer to me than some
I'm honestly a pretty open book, though, so there's only a handful
of things I keep really private. Want to know what they are? Get to
know me and maybe I'll share.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
- You have a good sense of humor, hopefully sarcastic.
- You are ACTUALLY LOOKING TO DATE/BE FRIENDS. For some reason,
people join these sites not wanting either and I don't get
- You like gaming (NOT GAMES). I'm talking Video, Board, Card, etc.
If you like head games, don't bother.
- You are looking for a nice, honest guy.
You should NOT message me if:
- You're not actually interested in talking to me. I WILL write
back to you.
- You're going to write me single word responses or a sentence
fragment as the entire response.
- You don't dig big guys. I am. I'm working on it, but I'm not
going to drop to 180 overnight, so if you're looking for a cut guy,
Who are you looking for?
