Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a country boy through and through. I love the outdoors and
anything to do with it, but that doesn't mean I don't appreciate
culture and civilization. I'm equally at home in old jeans or a
tuxedo. What you see is what you get: I won't hide anything or
pretend to be someone I'm not: I'm honest, loyal, and committed to
the people that I care about. When I laugh, I laugh heartily, and
when I love, I love unconditionally. I don't drink, smoke, or do
drugs. All my friends and students say that I always have an easy
but genuine smile ready for them. Volunteering and giving back to
the community in whatever way I can is a deeply held personal value
of mine. As such, civic mindedness is a required quality that I am
looking for in a potential match. Lastly, family is also very
important to me and I look forward to having my own one day, maybe
even foster or adopt, too. While I'm on here primarily for love, I
would also appreciate forging new friendships, too.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
In a prior life, I was a cancer researcher turned academic. After
many years as a biology professor, I will become a high school
science teacher this fall. Teaching has always been my life's
passion and I enjoy working with children of all ages. The greatest
reward in life for me is to see my students grow and become
accomplished in their own lives.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I used to be a professional dancer and still love to hit the bars
and clubs for a whirl around the floor. Studied close quarter
combat for awhile and still got the moves when I need them.
I like to grow stuff and usually maintain a garden in some form or
another, no matter where I live. Going hand in hand with having a
garden, I also enjoy to cook and delight in entertaining guests.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I'm a country boy and often dream of buying a farm/ranch one day
where I grow organic produce and make artisanal foods. I also think
a lot about family and kids. I love children and want to have some
of my own as well as adopt internationally when I settle down.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
As a former professional dancer, I enjoy going out and dancing on
the weekends. Got my boots ready if any ladies are ready for a
twirl around the dance floor.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Most days, I wake up so full of life that I feel like a
superhero... nigh indestructible and able to leap tall buildings in
a single bound.
Actually, I really am almost indestructible. My doctor let loose an
expletive when he got the results of my DEXA scan... but I still
can't leap tall buildings in a single bound, much to my

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I am attracted to women who are strong and independent. I want
someone who will cast their own shadows and not stand in mine. As a
natural caregiver, I also want someone who can take care of me as
well as I take care of them. Other traits I look for are a positive
outlook on life and the ability to find humor in everything. While
not necessarily a deal breaker, I'm not very keen on body art
(excessive piercings and tatoos). Most importantly, I am looking
for someone who is going to be committed to being in a lasting,
meaningful, and productive relationship. It doesn't have to start
out that way, but must at least have a chance of becoming so. If
this sounds like you, message me!
