Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My name is Craig, and you are?
I have a wonderful penchant for cooking, you should never trust a
skinny chef. What are you good at?
I was born in San Francisco, but have lived all up and down the
coast, my last city was Los Angeles. Where do you hail from?
Tell me something interesting about you.
I'm not looking for a pen pal. I'm definitely interested in
something long term, but I'm also definitely looking for someone to
go out with, not come home to right now.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm preparing for the winter holidays. I've returned back home to
San Diego after about a dozen years abroad, and glad to be back
I feel like I can have a little fun without worrying about "the
future" too much. I'm able to do a little bit of traveling (while
other countries are great, there's still a lot of this country I
want to see. This year I've been to Nevada (Burning Man), Norfolk,
Oahu and Kauai (Hawaii). I want some more time in the mid west
though. I thought Kansas City was great, wasn't that big on St.
Louis though. I didn't spend enough time in Detroit, just enough to
be curious about exploring the urban blight of a ruined city.
I'm getting myself out there. I love hiking, riding my bike,
Burning Man was fantastic this year. I'm having fun meeting people
and making new friends.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Enjoying the simple things in life, staying positive. Live, laugh,
I have fantastic date ideas when it's someone I like and I'm
getting good feedback and know the person. I'm the guy whose date
ideas get copied.
I love to do karaoke, sometimes bad, sometimes good, ALWAYS
entertaining. I love going on tasting tours for awesome craft
beers. I hike and ride my bike. I have two left feet, but I would
love to find someone to take dance lessons with.
I manage to be the stable rock people build friendships on, and the
guy who always has a good time. We find joy when we give up our
expectations and live in the moment at the expense of no other
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Sometimes I don't smile, I'm not in a bad mood, I'm just thinking,
or tuning out the world, and I look WAY more intense and
intimidating that I actually am until I say or do something. This
is the guy version of "resting bitch face". I'm not mean, I'm not
scary, I just look that way.
I'm a very positive person, however, so if I'm not looking intense,
it's probably the beard.
I'm enjoy hanging out with kids, and those that see me spending
time with them often have the best opinions of me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Books: Card, Butcher, Powers, Gaimon, Adams,
Martin occasionally Sedaris and Barry
Food: I'm rather exploratory when it comes to my
pallet, and I'm kind of a foodie, though when I'm cooking I tend to
run spicy or rich foods with a lot of vegetables. I NEED a
restaurant buddy, so even if you don't feel a love connection, if
you think you can keep your end of the conversation, let me know!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Amazing friends - I've chosen for loyalty, and I have it in
Duct Tape - Because Duct Tape will fix everything.
A good multi-tool.
A lighter - FIRE GOOD!
A computer or other information device.
I'm part engineer...if I have those things, I can probably build
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How I can make something better, whether it be experiences, or
stuff I build, or friendships, and how the only people you should
try to get even with are people who have treated you well.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Most Fridays I'm at home, it's the end of my week and I usually go
out during the week, often way too late, so I'm often burned out by
the end of the week, and just want to order takeout and watch a
If I get notified early enough in the week, however, I'm more than
willing to be there for a good time.
Still, I'd rather sleep in and get out there all day Saturday.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

A lot of my photos are taken with other people because I hate
taking pictures by myself.

intelligence, confidence, and the ability to not take oneself too
seriously. These things are far more important than looks.

the day ends in 'y'. I'd just rather you say hi than creepily hang
out and look at my profile. If I messaged you, I especially want to
hear from you, even if it's just to say, 'No thanks.' I think the
world would be a better place if we worked to create opportunities
to treat people like people.
I'm looking for someone that is still looking for adventure.
Someone that has their life together and is looking to share that
joy and have the joy I've found shared with them. Someone that can
take an offered arm and just find be enjoyable. Someone who gives
everything they do everything they have, especially if they look
silly doing it, and someone that wants to leave the world a better
place. If that's you, send me a hello.
