Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Summaries are difficult. First off, how do you write a paragraph
that accurately describes yourself? Ok hmmm...well here's a
start---we'll call it the 'good parts version'. :D
I am. Multi-faceted. Evolving. Nice guy. Creative. Smart. Funny.
Romantic. Loyal. Thoughtful. Expressive. VERY. :P Believe in
balance. (And striving to achieve that) Hard-working. (Too
hard-working actually...need a lil more balance there. Working on
it.) Interested in process, not just the result. Goofy sometimes
(sometimes, more than just sometimes) :O Spider-phobic. (Long
story. A couple actually.) :S ENTJ, for Myers Briggs fans. Altho I
think I have 'Introvert' tendencies too. 🙈 Oh, & humble. No,
Life is good for the most part, but it feels like the right time to
find my 'partner in crime'. Not in the 'Bonnie & Clyde' sense,
just to be clear. ;)
Just like the idea of exploring this crazy thing called Life
w/someone by my side, eventually.
Oh & I'm looking for someone to play 'Zombie Cribbage' with. So
bonus points for that. 😉
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Attempting to balance career/ other career/ home (aka Project
Central), & raising 3 cats-pretending-to-be-dogs.
Trying to figure out if there is a productive and/or profitable use
for cat hair.
Bossing pretty people around. (OK that's just @ work)
Looking for new experiences, & re-testing my reactions to the
Exploring this great city/ area. Been here all my life, but still
love to call the NW home.
Recently, started biking again. Want to go? :)
Trying to understand it all.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Organizing. Better @ other people's things. For myself, it's more
of a chaotic organization. Not sure why. :P Work in progress.
Listening. Altho I'm more of an active listener...I ask
Seeing the positive.
Trivia. Anything but sports. Or country music. Or politics.
Kissing. No I'm not professional or anything. Just sayin. ;)
Sewing. Well I should be, I've been doing it long enough. :O
You tell me.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Depends on the person/ situation I guess, but usually:
Tattoos. They're there. And growing. Thoughtfully. Over time. Not
like a rash or something.
Facial hair. It's there. What can I say, I'm now a full-on beardo.
(Not in a ZZ Top-Hipster-Amish Farmer-kinda-way tho) ;)
My ethnicity. Like...what is it? :P
My...age (I guess?) People think I'm a lot younger. Actually, I
think I'm alot younger. :P
Immaturity & preservatives in the modern diet, those are my
You tell me. Or maybe don't. Then I'll be all self conscious like.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
(Not necessarily) In order of importance:
MOVIES: SO many...everything from Baraka to Dark Knight; love
directors Hitchcock, Ridley Scott, Stanley Kubrick, Peter
Greenaway, Tarsem Singh; very visual, so I like movies w/good
costuming (& it's helpful if it's accurate) & interesting
lighting. And good writing of course. And pretty much every time
period from silent films to the present.
SHOWS: Lots of documentaries, especially nature & history; Game
of Thrones; Downton Abbey; Project Runway (I guess that's a given);
Tudors; Boardwalk Empire; Star Trek (almost all of them...yes I'm
raising my geek flag); Sex & The City; American Horror Story;
not so much on reality TV, unless they're doing something
interesting, like Amazing Race. All the Housewives of Fill In The
bug me, so if I do get tricked into watching, I usually end up
yelling @ the TV.
MUSIC: Again, a huge range of styles/artists. Pretty much
everything EXCEPT country. I'm pretty sure I'm allergic. Oh and the
sound of Dave Matthews voice too. Definitely allergic. Sorry, NW
Dave fans. It's ok, I'll suffer in silence. (Mostly.) 😉
It's a mashup & they're all mixed together in my mind. Just
like my ITunes, on permanent shuffle. :D
FOOD: Yummy food. Not a food snob, but I LOVE to eat (& cook)
various yummy things. My last relationship, I realized, we
spent an awful lot of time discussing/planning the next meal. And I
guess it stuck a little. :D
My new thought is to try to make dishes w/only 5 ingredients.
Working on that.
DONTs: scallops...again, allergic. Really. Not so much on seafood
in general. Except tuna/maguro sushi, go figure.
DOs: yummy ramen/noodles (I was born this way), lavender ice cream,
seared brussel sprouts, MARZIPAN...the list is too long, you'd stop
BOOKS: Reading 'Game of Thrones' books right now. Great
HBO series too... :D
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Never do without? Well, I dont know re that, but here are things
that i really enjoy...
My morning cup of coffee.
Internet. Or a connection to the world outside in general.
My cats/family/friends. My 'pack', & in no particular order.
Shoes. Both functional & aesthetic. Don't judge now. :P
That's more than 6. Does this mean I'm needy? Or greedy? :O
I will negotiate for more than 6 items. ;)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How things/people/actions fit in the world. Feelings.
Cause & effect.
How to be better/ faster/ harder/ stronger.
What my cats would be saying if they were talking.
Places to explore/ things to experience.
Changes all the time. Ask if you'd like an update. ;)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Working. Trying to get the hell outa the office. :O
Designing. It'll be a long nite.
Relaxing. Hopefully something involving yummy food & good
If I have a bikeride/ hike/ other on Sat AM, lamenting that I have
to go to bed so early :O
See other. :P
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
This is a trick. If it's private, then I wouldn't write it on here,
in the public domain.
I do have funny stories, but that happens when I get to know
What is the 1st Rule of Fight Club?
I will say this: Ideally, I'd like to meet someone w/the potential
to be a true partner; someone w/whom I could share everything;
someone who enriches & strengthens me (& vice versa);
someone I could be quiet with...
Until that time, I have Sleep Sheep. And cats. O geez. :O
