Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
This is not a self summary... Just a favorite story...
I was in Italy, traveling by myself and had just arrived by rail in
the town of Cornigelia in Cinque Terre. I had read Rick Steves book
on traveling in Europe and getting the most out of your trip by
engaging the locals and avoiding tourist traps. One of his
suggestions/recommendations was to walk into any local restaurant
and ask for a room...
So, I got off the shuttle that brought me to the door of a cafe and
I walked up to the waiter, (very sterotypical italian waiter) and
asked for a room. He replied, "Lunch is over". I thought perhaps he
misunderstood me, so I asked again. He said, "Would you like some
Salmon Penne Pasta." I just nodded and said "Sure, but I really
need a room." He looked at me and said "Lunch is over, sit
Totally lost, I sat down and thought about what I was going to do.
The nice waiter brought me a half liter of wine, (oh, man I LOVE
Italy!) and just before the pasta arrived, a dark haired man came
up and sat in front of me and asked if I needed a room. I almost
blurted out "Lunch was over", but instead said yes... He told me

door! The dark haired man was sitting there talking to the waiter,
(who I assume was his brother) and took me to a woman who rented me
a fabulous room for 3 glorious days.

Books? I read "The Shack" which I found VERY thought provoking.
"The Last Lecture" by Randy Pauch. I just finished rereading
"Flowers for Algernon". I never realized they edited it for school
age children. "Screw the Roses, Send Me the Thorns" is a great book
I keep close. A friend convinced me to buy a Kindle and have more
on it than I realized I would ever download. Did you know you can
find FREE good books to download on that?
Movies? I like the old musicals, good chick flicks, action films,
most sci fi and stories about real life and real people.
TV shows? I don't get the chance to watch much TV. Dexter on
Showtime, a bizarre little show is a current favorite.
Music? Just about anything... it really depends on what I am doing
and where I am. My CD collection ranges from country, rock,
musicial soundtracks, new age, latin.. but Rap? not
Food? Oh, man... I love to travel just to eat the local food. My
favorite question of a waiter is: "What would YOU have if you were

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are an intelligent male with any courage or a sense of
