Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
After many years of traveling the world and skiing and climbing
like mad and living a life of responsibility-free adventure, I now
find myself wanting to settle down (somewhat) and start a career.
Kind of like a reverse mid-life crisis, which hopefully does not
mean that I am about to impulse buy a 2011 Dodge Caravan. Now I'm
in Denver and am teaching high school, so I am responsible for
helping mold the future leaders of our country. People who know me
well should be scared at that prospect, because I am a
Luckily, living here in Colorado still allows me to pursue my love
of the outdoors. While not as obsessive as I used to be, I still
like to climb and ski and also bike and hike. I try to get outside
as often as I can, and I would love to be able to share these
experiences with someone. Heck, I would love just to able to go to
a movie with someone, especially if it's one showing at the Mayan
in Denver. Or if it's a cheesy dance movie, to which I must admit a
secret weakness (I suppose not so secret anymore).
I used to believe in certain criteria of a "perfect match", until I
found myself connecting with people that wouldn't normally fit my
pre-conceived idea of a perfect match. I'm just looking for that
spark of chemistry that is wholly unpredictable until I actually
meet someone. Someone who is fun, adventurous, outgoing, can teach
me how to salsa dance, laughs at my jokes, likes my beat-up Subaru,
watches The Simpsons, is ridiculously gorgeous, and is outrageously
wealthy. (That was a joke. Laugh.)
Really what is key is the feeling that the other person's happiness
is important to my own happiness, and vice versa. I think this is
the essence of caring, and it would be nice to share this feeling

A somewhat oxymoronic category, considering that if I'm willing to
admit it here, it is clearly not very private. I generally don't
have too much to hide. I would say that I can display a raunchy
(some say completely inappropriate) sense of humor. Prudish types
may be turned off.
