Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
First off, one of my favorite quotes:
The trouble with quotes on the internet is that it's difficult
to discern whether or not they are genuine. --Abraham
Thanks Abe. I couldn't have said it better myself.
So, in that spirit let me begin with this. Way back in
kindergarten, I was voted, "The most likely to be on OK
Damn, those little bed wetting guys n gals called it. They were
like oracles. Who knows what else they knew? What they could have
So, here I am on OK Cupid and I have to say thanks for stopping by.
(Let me clean off a spot on the virtual blanket and you can have a
seat and relax.)
I am from the great state of Pennsylvania but I've been in New
England long enough to fake the accent if needed.
I also spent some time abroad. I used to call it home and once said
to my brother (when I was in PA,) "I'm going home tomorrow." He
responded with, "Umm, home is HERE."
We stared blankly at each other for a moment. Like British comedy
So, I guess "home" is wherever your heart and your pillow
Other things to note:
1) I have good parents and brothers.
2) I try not to drink coffee much. However, one of my favorite
things in the world is good black, strong coffee with a small sweet
E) I love soccer. Playing or watching. I've been to several World
Cups. I also scored with my high school soccer coach. (Thanks for
the assist, coach.)
6) I used to be a beer snob. Now, I realize that all beer has a
time and place. Pass the High Life.
2) I would love to live without air conditioners. However, it's
really hot in my room. Like really hot. Plus, AC's make summer
cuddling possible. I think 70 degrees is my jam.
J) I know lots n lots of people from bartending for a long time in
the area. My friends call me the Mayor of Camberville. Don't forget
to cast your vote in the next election. Vote early, vote
D) I love, "That's what she said."
9) I once was paralyzed from the neck down. (I'm not now and I'm
not typing with my tongue or chin.)
3.a) I used to work with dolphins and seals. (I always cut plastic
rings from six packs.)
37) I'm great at lists, especially enumerating them.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
In college, I worked in factories between summers. I have no idea
Apparently, I didn't have a true given name. I was called, "Son."
It was like Deliverance in an urban setting.
The tall, wiry foreman had this tan, leathery skin with piercing
blue eyes. I called him, "Leatherface" (behind his back obviously.)
He was the scariest man I have ever come into contact with.
Worst summer job of all time. I should have been a lifeguard, a
waiter, a camp counselor, etc. Instead, I made foam and inhaled
noxious chemicals. COUGH
Currently, I "save" lives (or prolong them as best as I - or modern
medicine can) on an ambulance.
There are good days and bad days on the truck. Just like any job
I also spent some time in restaurants slinging drinks. Currently,
I'm doing a couple of nights at a great place.
I just don't want to be one of those burned out people who hates
their job. I've worked jobs where you work. I want
to enjoy what I do. I like my life (aka living.) I want to enjoy
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
8) Realizing absurdity
6) Making myself laugh - which usually includes making others laugh
7) Being a good traveler (smiling and engaging people - especially
strangers. Treat people like people and they respond well.)
5) Staying positive
3) Speaking Japanese (but absolutely murdering Spanish)
0) Cardiac arrests and trauma
9) Enumerating lists
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I like... I like me. My wife likes me. My customers like me.
'Cause I'm the real article. What you see is what you get. --
Love that guy.
Anyway, my eyes and humor stand out the most. (And I like
Beyond that, I'm warm and welcoming. I want people to feel
comfortable and cared for. Maybe that's why I've chosen the jobs I
have: teacher, bartender, EMT, coach, etc.
So, in summary, nice eyes and a big heart?
Sounds good if you ask me.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) Violin - when I'm playing it well
2) Soccer - when I'm playing it well
3) Cameras - when I'm using them well

Why you haven't written me yet?
Oh it's MY job?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Sobbing uncontrollably looking at OK Cupid.
Heaving breath, blotchy-faced, with 2 boxes of tissues in case the
first one runs out.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I hate spelling words that include I and
I'm not too bad at it. I know the whole I before
E except after C. And then...
there are exceptions...
Sheesh... It's all so Wierd... Crap, I mean weird. Whatever.
Someday ask me about the word, "Princess."
Also, I should listen to NPR more.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
...the corners of your mouth or even just one corner moved upward
in the form of a smile. That would be so cool.
Let's face it: we all like to feel special, loved, and cared for.
It's what separates us from other animals. Yeah, that and the
opposable thumbs and the knowledge of our own death. I'd like to
meet a nice lady. I'm a fine lad myself.
Things I like: funny, passionate, active, athletic, smart, witty,
talented, geeky or nerdy (that translates to passion,) kind,
giving, has a mountain bike, drinks whiskey, likes art, loves dogs,
can get muddy, drives stick, morbidly obese, and bed bound.
There are two on that list I was on the fence about...
Let's chat. Let's meet up. See how it goes.
Thanks for reading. I apologize. I got a smidge verbose. If you
stuck with the whole thing, you should get an ice cream cone with
your favorite flavor.
