Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
People seem to like me because I am polite and I am rarely late. I
like to eat ice cream and I really enjoy a nice pair of slacks.
Years later, a doctor will tell me that I have an I.Q. of 48 and am
what some people call mentally retarded. [Bonus points if you know
where this is from.]
In all seriousness, allow myself to introduce…myself. I’m a pretty
laid back guy who prides himself in being a very open-minded and
balanced individual. I’m light-hearted and have a ridiculous sense
of humor, yet I am very introspective, mature, fiercely loyal, and
career driven. I can be very spontaneous (I once went on a two week
vacation to South Korea and Hong Kong on two week’s notice) but am
also very disciplined and responsible (I’ve been maxing out my 401K
since I graduated college in 2005). I believe in pursuing your
passions (in my first two years of college, I was in a band and was
convinced I was going to become a rock star) while still embracing
practicality and being down to earth (when I realized I sucked at
music, I had to settle for an engineering degree – dull, I know).
50% of my humor comes from Family Guy, 50% comes from Anchor Man,
and 50% comes from Arrested Development (apparently I’m not good at
math, how the hell did I become an engineer?).
I ran my first half marathon last year and am currently addicted to
learning how to play tennis. I enjoy cooking (and eating),
traveling, and just got started seriously getting into photography.
I like to stay busy, try new things, and put a lot of effort into
staying connected with my friends and family. As such, I’m
constantly running around doing different things with different
people. However, I also understand the importance of solitude and
try to regularly schedule some time for myself to simply veg on the
couch watching TV or reading a good book.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm currently working as an engineer for a heavy civil construction
company and exploring LA since I just moved here a few months ago.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I love connecting with people and understanding what makes them
tick. I'm still trying to figure out how I can become a
professional life coach...

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
The World Wide Interwebs
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What my next meal is going to be...
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Dinner and drinks, anything with good company.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I once drove to Vegas in 3.5 hours on a Friday afternoon after work
to catch a Lady Gaga concert on two days' notice. In my defense, I
was hooked up with free tickets and a free room. Don't judge me...

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I am an ENFJ personality (Myers-Briggs Type Indicator) to the “T”
and would love to meet someone compatible. I'm looking for someone
who is genuine, who has a good head on her shoulders, and most
importantly, who has a good heart; someone who is intellectual
and/or spiritual, who understands what it means to be self aware,
and yet is down to earth and can have a good time in just about any
situation. I'd like to find someone who is intelligent and has
depth, yet doesn't take herself too seriously and can just be a
silly dork. Is that too much to ask? =)
