Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm friendly, outgoing, fun-loving and somewhat gregarious.
What I'm looking for? I'm looking for someone to engage in
conversations both meaningful and frivolous; to do things together,
take walks in the park and ride bikes and watch the spring time
bloom into summer or the leaves change color, to visit museums and
share raucous laughter over coffee; someone to enjoy a movie
together, to dine together at our favorite restaurants (perhaps
steak? Sushi or teppanyaki?) and to seek out new places; someone to
share with me their favorite places; someone to relax with in front
of the fireplace on a cold snowy night. someone to take a weekend
road trip up north for no other reason than we felt like going;
someone spontaneous who wants to join in the above and who will
invite me to share in their adventures too;
In short, I'm looking for a friend, a companion, a date, a partner,
and yes, a lover too. All of that, in my estimation, adds up to an
So, let's chat over coffee or drinks, or take a nice walk through a
park or around a lake. Perhaps even a stroll through the MIA or MN
History Center or pedal on a leisurely bike ride...if this
interests you, by all means message me and let me know when you're
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
For a living I'm a mobile software architect and IT consultant. I
design and write business enterprise software for mobile devices
and have co-authored a book on the topic as well.
I occasionally travel for business (on weeks I don't have the
kids.) but I still have plenty of time to meet new friends and grow
I own my own home where I live with two of my kids on a full time
basis and an alternating weekly cycle with my son. The children who
stay with me full time are older, so it's usually not a problem to
schedule an evening out to meet a new friend, perhaps you?
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I can cook and do very well at whipping up a meal based on what's
in the fridge, I can make a good batch of chili or stew. More of
the comfort foods than anything fancy, though I'm also good at
grilling up a couple steaks, which I enjoy with a pinot
I'm a woodturner by hobby and make bowls and some very good drop
spindles, (you fiber types will know what I mean.) And I'm fairly
good at writing, but rarely have enough time for it.

Books: Lord of the Rings; anything by Patricia McKillip; A Song of
Fire and Ice (a.k.a. Game of Thrones); that sort of thing.
Movies: I like most action adventure movies, Marvel in particular,
and most anything by Pixar and Studio Ghibli.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

forward and also why "To Kill a Mockingbird" routinely appears in
people's favorite books lists...
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Generally hanging out with my kids on weeks that they are with me,
or with my friends. catching a happy hour at Merlin's Rest or
somewhere equally as entertaining.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
What's the most private thing that I'm willing to admit, after all
the other private things that I'm not? Hmm, not sure how to answer
that other than if you're curious about something, just ask.
I'm willing to admit that I saw the Pixar movie "Brave" by
myself...and enjoyed it.
