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

answers to the questions, not just the predefined list, but your
commentary, sometimes it's witty, or thought-provoking, or just
plain entertaining. **
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I just finished a very fun season of playing Broomball, and am
looking forward to playing again next year. But I can wait until
after the next few warmer seasons.
I work in IT developing mobile applications for business.
Occasionally have to travel, but not very often.
Doing my best to be a great dad for my four kids. A couple have
launched (mostly) and another is getting ready to go to college in
the fall. My youngest is with me every other week, but is reaching
the age where he'd rather do his own thing, so that leaves me
plenty of time to meet you for coffee or drinks. :-)
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 often 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...perhaps you can convince me to read
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.
And that I'll sometimes dance around the kitchen listening to
Fratellis while doing dishes...
