Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I've lived in Atlanta most of my life (originally from Chicago) and
consider myself an adopted southerner. I've never been married, no
kids and I'm definitely over dating just to be dating/going to bars
and clubs on a "mission" (aside from the fact that I am terrible at
flirting). I have a stable job and don't have any roommates (if
only for them not drinking my beer). I used to travel a lot, so I'm
happy to be home more often to sleep in my own bed and not worry
about needing a sweater I may have forgotten.
I'm a laid back guy who enjoys what life has to offer: sports, art
museums, restaurants a food snob would enjoy and sitting on the
porch with a cold beer are just a few of life's pleasures.
Also, I'm not really sure how I'm "More Independent" yet "Less
Indie" on the personality portion of this site. Any insight would
be greatly appreciated.
I have a family that extends more than most, but only a few members
live in the area. I'll bring diagrams to the second date.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working a job in finance with daytime hours. You know, so I can buy
dinner and not have to live with my mom.
I've become a runner over the past 3 years and I've really enjoyed
all the benefits that come with that. Even the sore knees. I don't
run races because its life affirming, I've just found its a great
way to set goals and burn calories.
I decided to finish my college journey that began in the late 90s.
Hopefully my plan will work out and I'll be done at the end of
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I can hold my own at Jeopardy/trivia nights and can provide
excellent commentary during a sporting event (MST3K style).
I've realized I can cook, I just need a recipe. My cooking improv
skills need some work.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I prefer biographies over fiction- "The Soundtrack of My Life"
"Those Guys Have All the Fun" "President Me" "The War for Late
I'm a typical nerdy guy for movies- "Star Wars" "X-Men" "Avengers"
with a good comedy thrown in like "Ted" or "Happy Gilmore". A well
done documentary can be rewarding as well, "Food, Inc." or anything
done by Ken Burns.
I watch a few things on TV that are semi-snobby "Parks and Rec"
"Justified" "Archer" and those greatest places to eat shows on Food
Network and Travel Channel.
I listen to just about everything, but my favorite genres are early
80s New Wave, 90s modern rock, late 60s/early 70s R&B but my
iPod playlists are filled with dance music and metal for work-outs.
Satellite radio is pretty awesome for the rare find and so worth it
for no commercials.
I'll eat anything once, but I usually find it goes better with
Sriracha. Love seafood, burritos and can always find a new treat at
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
-tooth paste/tooth brush/floss/moisturizer/deodorant (I'm a teeny
bit vain about my appearance)
-Hockey (in general or Preds to be more specific)
-Coffee (Hot, Iced, just don't deprive me)
OK, I could live without beer or wine or the occasional Jameson,
but there is a reason they are social lubricants.
Oh yeah and air and water and food and stuff. Let's be creative
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
-Is the person driving in front of me really stopping for no
-New routes to run
-What if Leia hadn't kissed Luke?
-Moving to a city that has an NHL team (not really, I love
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Usually resting after a long work-week, but totally up for a laid
back night with friends. I'd rather save my energy to get up early
for a run/hike/farmer's market trip. Also probably studying or
working on a project. But if plans arise, I can rally after work
for dinner, a movie or Braves game.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I was "catfished" a few years back. Granted, we met on another
online dating site and only chatted for a few days before going out
so I wasn't madly in love or anything like that. So I get why so
many people are apprehensive about meeting someone online. I'll
give you more details when we go out for drinks if you'd like to

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are an intelligent woman with a relatively stable life that
enjoys sports, a good beer, discussing the silliness of pop-culture
and relaxing on the couch is just as awesome as a night out with
friends. A few pluses are: adventurous eater (I'm not too fond of
the term foodie), are over 5' 6" and don't mind a man who spends a
few minutes looking at the mirror and more goof ball (80%) than
serious (20%). I'm not looking for a gym rat, but am looking for
someone who likes to be active (hiking, running, etc.). The basic
partner in misdemeanor crime.
Also, if you are looking for a guy who will make you laugh, drop
you off in front of a restaurant when its raining and mock the
people doing the wave at Turner Field, I'm your man.
Great conversationalists apply within.
