Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a happy, easy-going guy with a pretty great life. I've got an
excellent bunch of friends and a job I love, now I'm looking for a
partner to share it all with.
A bit about me: People tell me I have a huge heart, though I
sometimes lead with my intellect. My work affords me a pretty
flexible lifestyle, and when I'm not out at a client site I tend to
be fairly laid-back. I love adventures and conversation, but have
no desire to join the X-games or win arguments with anyone. I ride
motorcycles, scuba dive, watch movies, read books, and hang out at
Oskar Blues. I prefer being with people to being alone, but I can
make my own fun and am responsible for my own happiness. People say
I can be intense, but I never notice it. I've practiced martial
arts for many years and I go on zen retreats from time to time, but
I am focused on having a great life, not some spiritual path of
deprivation and sacrifice. :-) I am committed to growth and
practice, but as my zen teacher says, "If you have lost your sense
of humor, you have surely lost your way."
A bit about you: You are generally happy and easy-going, but you
can still get things done when needed. You're self-sufficient and
capable, but you can also share the controls with a partner. You
know yourself well enough to know there's still a lot to learn. You
are confident and strong enough to see the strength in
vulnerability. You are willing to share me with my friends, and
share your friends with me. You are interested in understanding the
world, the culture, and the people around you and you'd like a
partner to talk it all over with. There's a lot more, of course,
but that might be a good start.
If you see yourself in any of that, I'd love to connect.

or not, but it seems to think I'm here even when I'm not. The
internet is puzzling sometimes. :-) ---

I absolutely love my work. I am a consultant and coach, helping
people in business and industry bring the human side into their
I travel more than most people, but not all the time. Recently it's
been in the US, but in the past several years I've worked on five
continents in environments ranging from hotel conference rooms to
diamond mines and offshore platforms.
I have a pretty flexible life and enjoy traveling when I'm not on a
gig. I haven't worked 9-to-5 for over a decade.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Choosing a good hoppy beer, engaging in conversation, finding
things to laugh about, helping people grow, enjoying people.
The first things people usually notice about me

For some it's my eyes, others my laugh, and for others the fact
that I am a "grownup" who still drives a Tonka truck.

Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Friends & family
Good food & drink
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to live a joyful life. Philosophy, brain science, psychology,
sociology. Why squirrels do what the do. People I love. Where I
might go on my next adventure.
And, since I've been on OKCupid:
Why are so many of the questions so over-simplified or bizarrely
"Which shade of gray is your favorite? A. Black B. White C. I hate
For most, I feel like some explanation is necessary. And for some I
just can't find an answer I can work with.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Down t' pub.
Sharing a quiet evening at home.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm a bit of a sap and cry in movies with alarming frequency.

I read a quote on Piccsy:
"I like boys who are taller than me, smell good, and give great
hugs. So, uh, you."
Did you write that?
