Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
So, I'm sitting home on the couch on New Year's Eve, with a
debilitating head cold, surfing the 'net and decided to try out a
new dating site. Here I am!
I'm into outdoor stuff: mountain biking, hiking, camping, dog
parks, softball and golf.
I'm a sweet guy, generous and a deep thinker. Admittedly, I'm not
even always sure what I'm thinking about. I'll tell you if I know,
though. Stop me if I start to diatribe.
I love kids and animals and adults sometimes, too.
I haven't any kids of my own, but I do have Tater (woof).
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm recently divorced after a long separation; getting my "me"
I've decided to go back to school to further my education, although
I haven't a plan,...yet. Admittedly, this was easier when I was 30.
I have time.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Crossword puzzles. Is that of dating value???
I'm a pretty excellent antique furniture restorer, as it is my
profession, or at least a part of it.
In tune with my profession/passion I really like garage sales and
the flea market. That being said, I'm a solid negotiator.
I give a good "stinkeye", too.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I love live music. I lean mostly towards indie rock these days, but
I can get into nearly anything. Each genre has its own intricacies
and appreciable points, even bubblegum.
I grew up with a very musical father with a stout diet of Beatles,
Clapton, Hendrix, etc. I was backstage at Kiss when I was eight
with my dad. That was awesome.
More currently: Black Keys, Alabama Shakes, Gary Clark Jr. &
The Dead Weather (one of Jack White's many projects) are on my
I own a banjo (which I play atrociously) and like Bluegrass and
Bluegrass infused rock/alt-country (Wilco, Trampled By
There is still a place in my heart (& rotation) for the energy
and angst of good ol' Punk Rock.
Have you been to Union Transfer? I love that joint.
As for books, I'm going to reply "textbooks". Yuck.
I've been stocking up on some classics, though and we'll see when I
get an opportunity to dive in (Ilyad & Odessey, Ulysses - heavy
reading, I know). Love to read and see Shakespeare performed live.
Much Ado About Nothing may be my fave - whimsy, wit, wordplay &
juxtaposition make it fun.
My favorite movie is Young Frankenstein. I'm due for a fresh
viewing. I like vintage Godzilla movies a lot, too. But, I enjoy
more than just the ridiculous cited films.
TV: Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, It's Always Sunny..., Modern
Family, Top Gear (BBC), Shameless (a recent binge viewing of mine)
& when it's baseball season..woohoo!
As food goes, may I have more, please? Generally, I am an
adventurous eater, but my roots are in meat & potatoes.
I have been on a binge of classic Philly sandwich joints (which I
make time for if I'm visiting clients in town) and have a new
favorite Tomato Pie spot, which is in Jersey.
Love to cook for people I care about. Haven't been cooking enough,
lately. I don't buy jarred pasta sauce and I get meat from my
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Tater (my dog)
Been thinking about this one some more. I'm going to have to live
without #1 at some point. I should accept that. A lot of the other
stuff is frivolous, other than F&F. Admittedly, I might use the
damned 'net too much. Heck, I'm using it to find you. Is that bad?
Probably not, but we here all know some people that think so.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Everything. Not to be so vague, but my mind moves fast enough that
I often don't catch up to it. Were I a more organized thinker I
might be a novelist or screenwriter.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Chilling with Tater or poker with the boys. I'm good with adding a
date and some good conversation to this list.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I pluck my eyebrows. Not with any skill, mind you.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
... you like what you've read, think goofy is fun, aren't disgusted
with golfers or can tie a cherry stem into a knot with your tongue.
I'm kind of kidding.
Women are smarter than men. Y'all know way more than we do if
there's a possible match or click between two people and their
online dating profile jazz. This is not to say I won't shoot you a
note. I may. From my online dating experience, men (but not me, of
course) try to fish with a shotgun, spraying the pond hoping for a
floater. That being said, I am terribly impressed by a woman that
reaches for the knucklehead she spies and wakes him up.
Gimme a shot.
