Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am an easy going, outdoorsy guy who enjoys traveling, meeting new
people, experiencing new things, and enjoying life to its
I am always up for a new challenge, to learn something new, or to
try something different. I like to travel, whether it is around the
US or overseas. I am an avid boulderer/climber, occasional bowler,
skier, hiker, camper, board game player, and more. I love the
outdoors and the activities that can be found, but also like to
relax, hang out with friends at a local pub, watch a movie or a TV
show, and cook; especially for others.
I am looking for a confident honest woman that complements me,
motivates me, and makes me a better person. I want someone that
enjoys life, takes chances on new experiences and seeks to continue
to learn and grow. I seek someone I can fully confide in, someone
that can share the great times and buffer the bad, and someone that
can be a best friend.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
For work I procure goods and services necessary for the continuing
operations of the largest school district in Oregon. I can say that
I work with amazing people in a vital industry with ever reducing
resources and funding. It is a challenge that has great rewards,
the education of our students.
Outside of work I tend to stay busy. Whether it is rock climbing,
camping, trying a new restaurant, playing trivia, or simply meeting
someone new, there is always something to experience. I believe
that there is a lot that life has to offer and right now I am
trying to take in and enjoy as much as possible. There are always
things that can be done alone and with friends, but I would
definitely like to find someone with which to share and experience
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Planning events (especially camping trips and potlucks), being
there for friends and family, cooking, listening, taking life as it
comes, and not stressing about the little things.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My friendly smile, intuitive nature, and quiet disposition. I love
meeting new people but am obviously not the most boisterous
individual. It takes a bit to get me going but if you hit the right
topic a great conversation will be had right from the start.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I tend to read adventure, science fiction, and outdoor
related books but do throw in the occasional non-fiction book to
change things up.
I generally love food; be it Asian, Italian, Polish, German,
Brazilian, etc., it is all good. I will try anything at least once
and have only found a few things that I don’t like, water
chestnuts, natto, and hot and sour soup (sounds awesome but the
sour gets me).
Music: I kind of listen to a bit of everything but do tend to
listen more to pop, country, and indie.
Movies/TV: Action adventure, suspense thriller, horror (but haven’t
seen anything that good lately), comedy, and every once in a while
a romantic comedy too (always better with a girl).
Been watching a lot of Discovery channel and catching up on the
Walking Dead, the Following, Spartacus, Game of Thrones, Dexter,
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Family, friends, the sun (despite the rare nature here in
Portland), the outdoors, ethnic food, and time
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The next adventure, the next thing to learn, and the next thing to
experience. Of course good food and company are often on the mind
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
-Hanging out with friends;
-experiencing the Portland night life;
-going to a movie;
-climbing at the indoor rock gym;
-hitting the sack early in prep. for the Saturday adventure;
-or simply staying home, cooking, and relaxing.
