Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I’m an engineer and work for the government. . .my work is
challenging and interesting but does not provide me with my
“identity”; my relationships and activities outside of work largely
determine “who I am.” I am a reserved person who can nevertheless
be quietly intense and passionate about certain things although
this is often not immediately apparent to people when they first
meet me. I am usually a very logical, practical, and prudent person
with virtually everything that I do in life, but I also appreciate
and enjoy certain types of music and other art.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I enjoy spending my free time in a variety of volunteer/community
activities. I especially enjoy being part of the Civil Air Patrol.
I’m a pilot and find flying in small airplanes to be both
stimulating and relaxing. It’s especially exhilarating to take part
in a search and rescue or disaster relief mission as it gives me a
sense of fulfillment to serve my community and know that I’m doing
something that may be assisting or relieving the suffering of
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Most people who know me well would say I’m reliable, dependable,
hard-working, organized, goal/task-oriented, and always try to do
the “right thing” both at work and outside of work. I think many
would regard me as charitable both with my money and time and
always thinking of ways to help others.
I also enjoy making humorous or whimsical quips about various
things that I see at work or elsewhere and generating a near
unlimited supply of puns and other word plays that often require
specific technical knowledge in order to be perceived as “funny.”
Now, I assume that I’m "really good at this" and people aren’t just
being polite when they laugh at my puns at work. . .
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have a very quiet, introspective, and serious demeanor when I
first meet someone. It takes me a long time to “open up” and feel
comfortable talking freely with a person that I’ve just met,
especially a potential romantic partner.

Allen Guelzo’s “Abraham Lincoln: Redeemer President”, David
McCullough’s “John Adams” and “Truman”, and virtually any book by
Thomas Sowell. I occasionally read books by a variety of authors on
Christian theology and the interaction/interplay between science
and faith. Sometimes I will read techno-thriller novels by Tom
Clancy. My favorite movies include Gladiator, Das Boot, and
Amadeus. I enjoy classical music and Mozart is definitely my
favorite composer. I like eating spicy/tasty foods in general with
curry dishes being some of my favorite cuisine although there are
other food types that I enjoy too.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A good night’s rest, caffeine during work days, lots of interesting
books to read, functioning sodium/potassium pumps in all my cells,
meaning to my life, and oxidative phosphorylation.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I am very task oriented and therefore much I spend much time
thinking about how to solve the next project or challenge that I am
dealing with at work or how to run a series of errands in the
evenings and weekends in the most efficient way possible. I also
think about a variety of random topics from time to time ranging
from current events either locally or in other parts of the world,
the most recent book that I read, a humorous conversation or event
that I witnessed at work, a particular composition that I have
played on the piano or heard performed somewhere else, and of

Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Catching up on e-mails, exercising, and reading interesting books.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
. . .you are single, have no children, and you’re seeking a
potentially long-term relationship. Yes, I’m aware that most dating
relationships do not end up lasting a lifetime, but it’s a
reasonable goal to shoot for, and if we simply end up being good
friends, that’s ok too. Since I’m a quiet guy, it would probably be
helpful if you were somewhat extroverted or at least not
You should not contact me if you are looking for a trendy person
who is really into discussing “pop culture”, the latest fashion
trends, fads, etc. I’m simply not interested in those things.
