Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I have a job.
I also have a car and a house.
I take a shower every day.
Can you say the same about your current man?
I am stable, educated, and responsible.
I've heard that women who are intelligent and successful often have
trouble finding a date. I am totally fine with dating a woman who
is smarter than me, has a better degree and a better job. I promise
you I am not looking for a sugar mama, but a breadwinner would be
totally awesome. I figure that, after a LONG courtship, it would be
great to live in a true two-income household where we can afford to
set aside a little bit of each paycheck for our travel fund, and
then go see the world.
The "eww he's obsessed with sports" warning:
I have the NHL Center Ice package and I frequently attend both CBJ
and OSU games. The winter time to me would be very boring without
I'm the same way with soccer, as I never miss a Columbus Crew home
game unless someone in my extended family is getting married that
day. As of this writing, I have missed two home games since
If the sports thing bothers you, do us both a favor and move along.
I've realized that it's a bad idea to try and hide it.
On religion: my family background is actually Jewish, but we quit
going to temple when I was 9 because the rabbi was a jerk. I don't
have anything against people who are religious. As long as I'm not
expected to become a weekly attendee then we can get along. I'm
willing to consider dating a Jewish woman, but for me it's a huge
turnoff to look at someone and think "Hey, she looks like one of my
cousins!". I'm willing to consider dating a woman from a hindu or
muslim background so long as she embraces modernity and moderation.
The one religion that I universally abhor is Jehovah's Witnesses,
and the reason is I would not be alive today if it weren't for
blood transfusions, which they think are evil.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I've been married and divorced, I've had cancer and gone into
remission TWICE. I am stronger than ever.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making the most out of every day.
Making fruit smoothies in a blender.
Taking complicated things and making them easier to
Describing things in a visual way.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm tall. 6'1or2". I mean, that's not like NBA tall or anything but
tall enough to reach stuff.
I don't open my eyes enough for pictures unless I think about it or
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I mostly read non-fiction but nobody seems to want to hear
about that so here are some novels I've enjoyed recently: The New
Republic by Lionel Shriver, Pygmy by Chuck Palahniuk, Netherland by
Joseph O'Neill, 11/22/63 by Stephen King, and How To Get Filthy
Rich in Rising Asia by Mohsin Hamid.
Movies: My favorites are anything directed by the Coen Brothers,
Wes Anderson, or Paul Thomas Anderson. I still haven't seen the
Master yet because I've been told by more than one person it was
Shows: Breaking Bad, House of Cards, HIMYM, Stewart/Colbert. I love
NPR and BBC Radio 4. My guilty pleasures are Pawn Stars, Jim
Henson's Creature Shop and Phineas and Ferb.
Music: I love anything with real instruments. Lately I've been on a
Jazz / Blues kick.
Food: I like almost everything. My favorite restaurants in Columbus
are El Arepazo, Creole Kitchen, and, if money is no object,
I want to mention, by the way, that I am not opposed to eating
vegetarian / vegan meals though I'd be lost if I were ever assigned
to put one together myself. I certainly would have no problem with
dating someone who is vegan or vegetarian as long as they respect
that I won't give up meat. Every now and then having a meatless
meal isn't such a bad thing, but I could never do it full time.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
All things I pay for monthly: Car, TV, Internet, Phone, Gas,
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
At a game somewhere, probably.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
If I ever have to cry on cue I can do so by remembering the
Futurama episode about Fry's dog.
