Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Ideally, every year I'd like to take one family vacation, one
exotic travel vacation and one relaxing vacation. I try to read
around 20 books per year. I would rather spend $100 at a local
gourmet restaurant than at Best Buy or Nordstrom. I get along with
my family most of the time. We used to butt heads. Now we hang out
and play boardgames when they're in town. I value comfort. My house
style is tea washed karastan rugs, leather sofas and hardwood
floors. I can stay at home for an entire weekend and experience
bliss. I can go out as well. I want to go on road trips and go out
to dinner once a week and entertain interesting people and do
random stuff like concerts or festivals. I'm not a sports nut, but
I like to go to Huskies football or a Mariners game once or twice
per year even just for the ceremony, the same way I'd watch the
Oscars or the Super Bowl. I'll sacrifice my will for your happiness
a a fair amount of time, I hope. I don't like shopping.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I like my job as an IT manager because it is always changing. I
like to look forward to travel. I have been to lots of interesting
places: Austria, Hungary, Czech Republic, Ethiopia, Kenya, India,
Thailand, Bali, Philippines, China, Japan, Hawaii, Costa Rica,
Mexico, and Alaska. I read books and do little things like have
coffee or see a movie and that's mostly enough. I want to go out
more and go on road trips. I have a little hiking posse going and I
want to explore little by little.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm really good at... driving. cooking. parking. solving computer
problems. Talking for a short time in person. Being the first
person to jump into cold water.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
high thread count sheets and a pillow top mattress
a variety of petty entertainments
cold, filtered drinking water
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
When the lottery gets huge, I buy a $1 therapy ticket and think
about having a flat in in LA, Manhattan, and a beach condo. I think
about travel. I think about reading or writing books. In my mind I
try to remember the beautiful views. I think about making or going
out to restaurant for a delicious dinner. I think about going to
exotic places and putting my toes in the sand. I think about where
I'm going to be in my life 10 years from now.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I would say that when I was in high school and college, my friends
and I wore army surplus and thrift store clothes and sneaked in to
dive bars and gay bars. Not really a scandal in Seattle, but it was
not macho in Tucson in the 80s.
