Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Note: If we meet and you look nothing like your picture, you are
buying drinks until you do.
So, this is the part where I'm supposed to lie and tell you that
I'm perfect, right? Well, I'm not going to do that. But let's cover
the basics ... I am steadily employed, I have a house, my car is
paid for and I've never been arrested. There, you can breathe
I relocated here from California a few years ago. As a non-local,
that means I have my teeth and I can speak intelligently. I spend a
lot of time traveling for my job or in Charlotte because let's face
it, there isn't much to do in Hickory. Yes, I have been asked if I
am in the witness relocation program. The real story for another
I am "middle of the road" when it comes to politics. That means
that I believe both Republicans and Democrats are equally capable
of being incompetent. But seriously, I believe strongly in the
power of choice and being open minded. I don't believe it is my
right to enforce my beliefs on someone else to take away their
chance of happiness.
So if you are against gay marriage, against a woman's right to
choose, and you plan on voting for Sarah Palin in the next
election, you should probably stop reading right about now.
I'm also an Atheist. I have to say I have so enjoyed the many
lectures I have been sent about how I must be a horrible person
with no moral compass. Allow me to state that I choose to be a good
person and do the right thing instead of doing so out of fear
and/or guilt. There is a BIG difference.
What am I looking for? If you are a laugh-riot to be around, can
wield sarcasm naturally, you can have a conversation beyond your
hair and shopping and you don't need a seat belt extender on a
flight. I'm not looking for anything serious, just some good adult
conversation at the end of the day over a glass of wine or a beer.
If you're looking to get married I can set you up with my neighbor.
He races lawn mowers.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Running my company and balancing my work and personal life.
Expanding my group of friends is a priority.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Looking for my next adventure, being creative and optimistic. I
believe that every problem, no matter how large, has a solution.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: To Kill a Mockingbird, PostSecret, and countless
Movies: My father was a movie critic so I like a lot of old movies
and tend to be overly critical at times. To Kill a Mockingbird is
my fav. I cycle through different genres depending on mood and time
TV: House of Cards, Newsroom, Jon Stewart, Curb Your Enthusiasm
(Larry David is my hero), Bill Maher (note: if you hate Maher, we
won't get along), Penn & Teller's Bull$hit Series, SNL, 60
Minutes, Family Guy, South Park.
Music: Sammy Hagar, Pink Floyd, Van Halen, Band of Horses, The
Killers, and The Cars. My music collective is extensive and still
have a lot on vinyl from high school that has survived.
Food: I'm a foodie. I like to try new places and also have my
favorite spots in almost every major city. Food is meant to be
shared and experienced. I crave food but also crave exercise so it
is a good combination.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
iPhone/iPod (music is the backdrop of life, isn't it?)
MacBook Pro (my career defines much of who I am)
Passport (Travel = Sanity)
The pause button
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Anything and everything. My brain is constantly working and it is
next to impossible to shut it off, especially at night. My current
stress usually dominates my brain.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Usually it is spent hanging out with friends, having good food,
great wine and stimulating conversation.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Hey ... I already admitted to being highly disorganized. I think
we'll stick with that for now ...
