Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
If you’re reading this it can only mean one thing…I’m still single.
Bad news for me, but good news for you if you find any of the
following to be slightly endearing to incredibly awesome:
1. You appreciate someone who has a good sense of humor, but are
also willing to accept that about two out of ten jokes are just
going to be cringe-inducingly unfunny (hey, you can’t hit homers
without striking out sometimes).
2. I actually like being romantic and affectionate. Feel like
holding hands or cuddling on the sofa during the latest Netflix
binge? – so do I…high five little spoon!
3. I don’t play games and I’m not interested in the whole serial
dating thing…I’m a relationship guy.
4. Despite loving a good time and laughing, I’m serious when I need
to be, passionate about life, and driven in my career.
5. I've lived all over (Florida, California, NY) but moved to
Chicago this summer (2014) because I fell in love with the city and
have, therefore, validated your choice of favorite metro
6. I’m really into and love all types of music. I can introduce you
to some new ear candy without being a hipster about it.
7. I have genes that keep me looking younger than my age. So, you
get a few extra years of wisdom and a little bit of an extension on
the boyish good looks:)
8. I know the difference between their, they're, and there and your
and you're. According to my empirical observations on OKC, women
find this to be like the intellectual equivalent of six pack
9. I spent a long time working on my career and myself, but I’m the
best version of me yet and looking to find the right woman to share
my new favorite city with.
10. You think men who prefer lists over paragraphs are irresistible
and you made it this far!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work in finance in a specialized area that you will either be
really interesting to you or make you bored to tears. The good news
is that I get to use a lot of cool sounding lingo.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making analogies...for example, "Joe got torn up like a parking
ticket last night". If you ever hear that phrase in a rap song, let
me know so I can collect royalties. Also, consider this a warning
for item #1 above.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Either my laugh or my dimple. They usually notice my "incredible
butt for a white guy" last, when I'm walking away.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Friends and family
3. Something fun to look forward to
4. New things to learn
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Why do people lose hair in desirable places as they get older, but
gain hair in undesirable places? Seriously, look at your dad's or
grandpa's ears some time.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either taking it easy unwinding from a long week of work or meeting
up with some friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm a walking encyclopedia of funny viral videos...I can think of a
good one for any situation.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
My ideal woman is sweet, fun, down-to-earth, loyal, open-minded,
and has a great sense of humor. People may think of her as a “cool
nerd” because she is outgoing and friendly, but she will also
surprise them with her incredible/embarrassing knowledge of certain
topics. Most importantly, she’s looking for a serious relationship
and doesn't have any unresolved ex-boyfriend issues (hint: if you
have multiple pictures on your profile with your ex, you may not
fit into this category...you know who you are). If this sounds like
you, I'd love to hear from you!
