Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I’m a dad. A really good one. I have one daughter who is 9 and
going into the 5th grade. She’s pretty great. It’s cool if you have
kids. Even better if you want more. I share her time with her
My ex and I are still very close friends. She's a great mom and
will always be a part of my life, because she’ll always be a part
of my daughter’s life. A few years ago she had an epiphany and
decided she couldn't be truly happy if she wasn't in a relationship
with another woman. Sure it sucked at the time, but now I’m happily
looking for my second chance at happiness. And hey, I managed to
keep a lesbian conflicted about her sexuality for 9 years!
Obviously, if any of that is an issue for you, then we won’t be a
match. She’s my daughter’s mother and I won’t have intolerance in
my daughter’s life.
I happen to have been born in Hong Kong. My parents were living
there at the time. I have lived in many places throughout my life.
SE Asia, Europe, and east coast US during my primary school years.
Home is now Colorado. At least for the next 10 years or so. Travel
is always on option. I’m good at it and a great travel partner
whether you’re an old pro too or just dipping your toes into new
places for the first time.
I speak English and Swedish fluently (I’m half Swedish) and can get
by in a few more without too much embarrassment.
I’m well educated. Dual undergrad degree in Geography and
Environmental Resource Planning from CU-Boulder, and an MBA from
the Rotterdam School of Management in the Netherlands. It was a
full time international program. Lots of fun. I had with classmates
from 42 different countries. I now literally have friends all over
the world. We can play a game where you name a country, I'll tell
you about the friends I have there or near there!
Continuous education is important to me personally and
professionally. After Grad school, I have gotten my PMP and Scrum
Master certifications. Essentially, I am very hire-able. Especially
in the IT management arena.
Since many of you list your Myers-Briggs personality type, I figure
it's important to you. I'm an ENFJ.
I’m pretty good at cracking people up. My daughter has often said
I’m the funniest person she knows. Clearly that is pretty high
praise.She’s got to know a couple hundred (or at least dozen)
I like to be flirty with the person I'm in a relationship with. I
like showing my affection and will do it often.
What I'm looking for: She fully owns her inner nerd. She's
compassionate and giving. She's physically active and takes care of
herself. She understands that "smart" = "sexy". She's a good mom
(to her/our kids not me). She's not shy to try new things and go to
new places, but also values quiet time enjoying each other’s
company and staying in for a night. I am very affectionate and
thoughtful and am looking for someone who shares those
If I think you’d also impress my daughter, then you’ll earn extra
points from me too! I don't think a "match" can be made just by
looking at profiles online. I want to meet you and have a real
conversation at a pub or restaurant. A date to me involves actually
interacting with each other, not just being at the same place at
the same time.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.

Looking for someone to join my adventures
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Things...and stuff... mostly things though... :-p
I'm pretty good at figuring things out. Either how things work or
new way to do stuff. See? Things and stuff!
I'm also very good at adapting, whether that is to a new place or a
change in my circumstances. I go with the flow. I don't really
bitch and moan very much.
I've been told several times that I am a very good kisser. It helps
that I really like kissing. :-)
Also, very good at warming you up when you're cold and keeping you
warm. It's a valuable skill.

I get a lot of "you look just like..." fill in the blank with
either a) someone famous or b) someone they know. It's almost
always a positive association. Even got me into a bar when I was

I have read all of the Game of Thrones books and am impatiently
waiting for the next 2to come out. Then I'll rewatch the first
season of the series and view the second thru fourth seasons after
Right now I'm reading "Unbroken" which is the biography of a pretty
incredible WW2 vet that was recently turned into a movie.

What questions did you answer privately? And how did you answer?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
When I am in a relationship, I like to go see stand up comedy, try
out new or favorite restaurants, or maybe go away for a weekend
adventure. Or stay in and cook dinner together and watch a video.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am having a blast answering and reading your answers to the
questions on here. Pretty addictive and interesting!

I always go into first dates as friends meeting up for the first
time. I rely on chemistry to decide if there is potential for more.
If I pick up that you're not interested, then I tend to lose
interest pretty quickly too.
I have no problem with a first date turning into just being
friends. If I wanted to meet you in person there was at least
something about your profile that I connected to.
