Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I've lived in DC for about two years now, and I'm enjoying it so
far. I could do without some of the pretentious people that live
here, but oh well, I did pick DC after all.
I'm a huge fan of all the touristy stuff in the district; museums,
parks, things like that. I can often be found in the portrait
gallery on my days off; headphones on, just zoning out to the
E Street Cinema and I are quite fond of one another. One of my
favorite activities is seeing a great film with a small bag of
popcorn, a DC Brau, and a smile across my face. I don't
discriminate though, for I love seeing a good blockbuster movie at
the big cinemas too. They're just missing the whole decent bag of
popcorn and DC Brau mix.
Love, LOVE, going to shows. Dc9, the 9:30 Club, and the Black Cat
are a few of my favorite places.
I spend quite a bit of time at Wonderland Ballroom as well.
I play a mean game of skeeball and there's a chance that dating me
will involve skeeball at some point. Games in general. (Ps: I suck
at skeeball. I'm totally lying with the mean game business.)
Playing goalkeeper for several soccer teams in District
It gives me an excuse to wear goalkeeper gloves, and jerseys, in
I also have to wear a helmet now when playing. Nasty head injury,
and now I'm that guy with a helmet. As if I didn't already look
I used to race bikes back home and I technically want to still do
that here, but I've been lazy. I ride when I can; training,
sometimes commuting by bike when it's not 1000 degrees outside. I
was pretty darn serious about it back home, and spent loads of my
free time riding and logging miles.
One of my favorite sports is professional bike racing. Yes, I know,
you find that odd.
I'm also a huge hockey fan. And no, I will not root for the
Capitals. I've adopted all the other DC teams, but not the Caps. I
hate them. Tampa Bay fan, through and through. Playoff hockey is
driving me bonkers!
I bought a season ticket to DcUnited games. So, yeah, I go
I've played in various indie rock bands back home, and spent a lot
of my twenties, and thirties, touring. It would be nice to meet
some people to play music with here. Kind of a tall order I
suppose. Too many lawyers and not enough musicians.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Step one: move to a new city and have that city beat you up some,
yet you still love it.
Step two: finally do something that makes you happy....
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Being the coolest person you have ever met.
"I want to hurry home to you, put on a slow, dumb show for you.
Crack you up." Cool people don't quote The National lyrics.

Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My poor, underused bikes.
It's sad, but I love my phone.

I have a few friends here that I think are pretty cool.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Life, the universe and everything.
Also, why do I exactly bother with online dating? Humans have way
too many choices at their fingertips, and no attention span to
spend with one person. There's always someone else one message
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Well, it turns out that the Black Cat no longer has a Dr. Who Happy
Hour. Which kinda stinks, since I have Friday nights off now. I
guess I'll have to find something else to do on Friday nights. Any
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I shave my legs. It goes with the whole racing the bike thing. I've
found that a lot of girls seem to frown on this aspect of me.
But, since it seems that half of the women on here are listed as

UPDATE: I no longer race bikes since my move to DC. Yet, I still
shave my legs, thus I'm just a weirdo...
