Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a nice and considerate guy who is looking for my last first
kiss. By day I am a systems analyst for a local university working
on detection and a cure for cancer, by night I am a dedicated dad.
I was born and raised here, so I have friendships going back to
grade school and most of my family lives here.
What makes me happy? Walking on the beach, seeing a friend I have
not seen in a while, my son's smile, dining outside on a nice day,
taxing down the runway as I start a vacation, spending time with my
friends and family, walks on the waterfront, ice cream on a hot
day, ice cream on a cold day, my son's laugh, hiking, hearing songs
that somehow relate to me, working out, watching movies, helping
someone, gazing at the stars, whale watching, accomplishing one of
the projects on my home, reaching the peak before the first drop on
a rollercoaster, white water rafting, a good meal,....
Who I am cannot be captured in just a few paragraphs, if you want
to know more, drop me a note. Also, based on numerous comments I
have seen on profiles, I am thinking I should get bonus points for
not having pictures of myself fishing, holding some dead animal or
with my shirt off.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am very busy with my career and raising my son.
I strive to constantly improve in a variety of areas in my life to
continue being a better person.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Either my height or shaved head.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
TV: The Walking Dead, Big Bang Theory, Better Call Saul, Modern
Family, and Grimm (have to watch a show filmed in Portland).
Theatre: Trying to get into the habit of going to at least two
plays a year.
Movies: Shawshank Redemption, Office Space, Ghost Busters, Ocean's
Eleven, Blackhawk Down, Harry Potter,... The list is large, for I
really enjoy movies. I got hooked as a kid, so much so, I ended up
working in theatres when I was in high school and college.
Music: Preference is based on a long story best explained best in
person. :-) I listen to everything from Aerosmith to Zapp, except
Books: Reading with my son, technical books for work, and currently
reading Thinking in Pictures.
Food: Sushi, Thai, Mexican, Greek, Italian, German, Chinese,
Vietnamese, Indian, French, BBQ,.....pretty much anything.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
- Family and friends.
- Laughter, which with my co-workers, friends and family I am never
deprived of this.
- The feeling you get as you taxi down a runway.
- Ice cream.
- My phone (Not sure how I wasn't continually lost before
- G2 Grape while on a long hike, playing a sport, or during a great
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Am I really more compatible with someone that is a 90% match than
someone that is an 85% match?
Where will my next vacation will be?
How, where and when I will retire?
If a weekend, soaking up every minute of it. If in a meeting,
thinking about the weekend. :-)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
That varies greatly based on who I am spending time with.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am pretty much an open book, but one of the things people find
interesting is that my Minor in school was Black Studies.
