Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Does anyone really like filling out this part?
I guess you can say that I'm hard-working, intelligent and
dependable, and I've been told I have a good sense or humor.
I'm serious about my work, but I like to kid around and have fun. I
prefer shorts and tee shirts to suits and ties, and beer over
I've led an unbalanced life lately. (All work and no play really
does make Jack a dull boy.) But I'm taking steps to change
I do tend to talk more than the average guy, probably due to the
consultative nature of my job. But I'm a really good listener as
well, so maybe it balances out.
I'm pretty "even keel" most of the time and will rarely lose my
temper with another person. (I will however sometimes freak out at
mechanical things like my office computer or the self-checkout
register at Home Depot, when they don't cooperate as
If I had a checklist (and who doesn’t) I’d say I was looking for an
intelligent woman with a good heart. She should have a sense of
humor or at least appreciate one, have a current photo in her
profile (yes, we all looked better in the 90s, but it's 2014) and
also have a place in her life for both me and my dog.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I’m an independent marketing consultant who helps businesses of all
sizes to maximize their sales and profits. I used to work
exclusively with local companies here in the Tampa/St. Pete (FL)
area. Now I work with a national client base in a vertical
The beauty of my current job is that I can do it from anywhere in
the world. I only meet face-to-face with my clients and prospects
at our industry’s annual conference. So as long as I have access to
a computer and a phone, I’m good to go.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making people laugh
Listening to problems (both personal and business) and then giving
Fitting into most any social situation
Creating marketing programs that increase my client’s sales and in
some cases changes their lives
Tennis, softball, and trivia

Depending upon their perspective, that I have a good sense of humor
or that I'm a bit of a wise guy.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Let's see...books would be mostly business and marketing oriented.
(I don't have much time for fiction any more.)
Movies...I used to be a sucker for a good romantic comedy, but when
was the last time somebody made a good romantic comedy? I also like
the "one man against the system" type of movie, like any of those
in the Bourne trillogy.
Shows...I'll assume they mean TV and not Broadway. I like 30 Rock,
How I Met Your Mother, Californication, Community, Dexter, The
McLaughlin Group and sporting events. I hate most reality shows,
but I do like "Shark Tank".
Music...Don't really listen to much of today's music. Not because I
don't like it, but because in the small amount of time I do have to
listen to music, I'd rather listen to some old stuff. Elvis
Costello, They Might Be Giants, 10CC, Squeeze, Beatles and the
Food...Since I started my marketing career in the food and beverage
world, I've tried all types of cusine. I like traditional American,
Italian, Mexican, Thai...and I'll try just about anything. Just
don't take me to a sushi place.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Living in a warm-weather climate
2. Wind-down time with someone I care about
3. My next marketing project
4. Reading and learning
5. A dog by my side
6. Football and baseball
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I spend a lot of time thinking about marketing and advertising. How
I can help my clients and build my consulting business.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Occasionally at a live sporting event, movie or dinner. But I'm
just as likely to be home either on the computer or watching TV.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I've already said too much. (I'll share more as we get to know each
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Message me if you're an intelligent woman with a good heart who
thinks maintaining a healthy lifestyle is important.
You should also be serious about finding someone to share the rest
of your live with. If you're just looking to make a new friend then
it would probably be better for both of us if you contacted someone
else. (It's been my experience that once a woman categorizes you as
a friend, you can never make the leap to love interest.)
