Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Below you'll find the longest essay that I've ever written (and
re-written and re-written...) about myself. A winkie face would be
appropriate there, but I'm not sure how I feel about winkie faces
I enjoy many things. In no particular order: making music (I play
the violin, I sing in the car and I dabble in other instruments);
reading fantasy and science fiction; writing stories; making
costumes; inventing things; and painting. (I usually rotate between
interests – it would be exhausting to do all of those at
I love rock climbing, tree climbing, ropes courses, skiing,
trampolining and trying new things. Bungee jumping? Sky diving? I
haven’t done either, but I’d love to try them. I like to laugh and
I like to make other people laugh.
I’m easy to get along with and I forgive easily. I am introverted,
with of its ups and downs.
I am an engineer with the Federal Government. I like to solve
problems (like trying to figure out why a roof is leaking, or the
best way to keep my backpack dry when biking in the rain) and to
keep my mind active (I’m working my way through a basic electricity
workbook – second time’s the charm!).
I look for consistency and truth. My logical nature means that I
resist religion (I’m an atheist). I spend within my means and I
save for my future.
I love my life and I’m quick to smile. I like dry humour and find a
lot of mundane things funny. I sometimes laugh at sad movies.
I'm very loyal and I'm looking for the long term.
THE MAN THAT I AM LOOKING FOR:
1. Is thoughtful and kind, with good manners
2. Is employed and has a plan for career and personal direction for
the next 5-10 year time frame
3. Has spending habits within his available means. Has a financial
plan that includes investment in and a plan for supporting himself
4. Looks to the long term and knows that ‘life is a team

9. Reads fiction

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am an engineer and I work for the federal government. I am
currently specializing in construction equipment and may soon be as
much of an expert as the average four-year-old boy :P
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I love fantasy style books such as the Bartimaeous trilogy,
Kushiel’s Dart and the Anansi Boys. I also enjoy non-fiction books
in the style of Malcolm Gladwell, political books about the Middle
East and China, and books about small businesses and
TV Shows: I don’t have cable, but I love to watch live feed videos
on the internet. My favorites are the Colbert Report, South Park
and the Daily Show.
Movies: I enjoy mostly comedies and movies that are lighthearted. I
recently saw "Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World" and "Megamind" and loved
them. Years ago, I saw "The Prestige" and was filled with anxiety
for a few days.
Music: My tastes in music are broad, some country, pop, hip hop
with good musical interludes and some rock. I like songs that make
me think or evoke an emotion. "No Fear" by Terri Clark, "Shadow of
the Day" by Linkin Park and "Life of a Soldier" by Ill Scarlett are
all good examples of songs that I like for that reason. I also like
a lot of songs because they are terrific to sing along with.
"Defying Gravity" and "Popular" from Wicked as well as "And We
Danced" by Deana Carter would be examples.
Food: Chinese, Indian, Fast, Meat&Potatoes, I like pizza but
only with a thin crust.
