Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
What can I say? I'm a California boy through and through and it's
going to be hard to drag me away from the bay area. Whether it's a
night out in the city, a weekend run to Tahoe, a day trip to Napa
or a hike in the Marin headlands there's just too much to love in
this great state of ours. I consider myself active and try to live
healthy (working out, playing soccer, eating those things I should
probably eat more of) but don't consider myself a gym rat or diet
freak. I love getting out but definitely enjoy recharging my
batteries in solitude when necessary. It's the introverted side of
me that pushes my extrovert out of the way every now and then. I'd
love to meet someone who compliments me but pushes me in new ways.
Things I'd love to do more: volunteering, read, see live shows. I'm
not a sport nut but I'm pretty close to it. Bill Simmons, PTI, the
49ers and A's have a special place in my life :) I'm a positive
person and you should be too. Nothing is less attractive than a
negative attitude. Sarcasm and wit will serve you well with me.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I've been working in a family owned promotional marketing company
my sister started about 15 years ago, for the last 7 years. It's
awesome but I'm just about ready to move on if for nothing else
than to gain a new perspective and mix things up a bit.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
bowling. Like sneaky good even though I only go about twice a year.
:) Oh and cornhole. Only the coolest park game on earth. Don't know
what that is? Great, we'll take my set out sometime and play. Just
don't count on beating me anytime soon :)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My freaky long eyelashes and soft hair. I also have pretty broad
shoulders. They make me look like I'm way more in shape than I
actually am at times. I'm definitely not complaining.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Newest love: Downton Abbey. Great, great show. Breaking Bad,
Boardwalk Empire, Game of Thrones, Modern Family, PTI, The Office,
Parks and Rec all make the dvr rotation. All time favorite books:
Of Mice and Men, Harry Potter, Brules (hard to find but just
fantastic), Tim Ferris books. Movies: American Beauty, The Pianist,
Shawshank Redemption, Rocky I-IV, LOTR, Forrest Gump, Finding Nemo.
Music: I love a good live show but am pretty dang illiterate when
it comes to bands. I'll listen to pretty much anything but
particularly love powerful vocals (Adele, Whitney Houston), well
done high production value songs (Kelly Clarkson, Katy Perry) or
classic alternative (Nirvana, Green Day, etc...). My guilty
pleasure in the past has been American Idol, shhh... Favorite
foods: Pizza and I will have a bond for life although I try to
limit myself to only a few times a month. I try to eat paleoish
during the week. I'm not much of a dessert guy but have a hard time
turning down a hot chocolate chip cookie. I absolutely love a
chilled microbrew but have no problems drinking a PBR when the time
is right, not even for the irony of it.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Friends, family, sports (both watching and playing), the city of
San Francisco, tolerance, positive people.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The future, nerd style. Did you know NASA is seriously working on a
warp drive that will take us to the next star system in a matter of
weeks? How can you not be attracted to me after dropping that kind
of knowledge on you? You might as well stop reading and message me
now. Oh, did I mention I have a bit of a nerdy side? In another
life I definitely have a chemistry major instead of business.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Browsing okcupid. Ha, just kidding. I'm out with friends. Whether
it's dinner and a fun game night, maybe a bar or two or catching up
at happy hour with a friend I haven't seen in a while. I'm
definitely not opposed to the occasional movie night, staying in or
going out. A bottle of red wine and a lighted fire place are mighty
fine on a rainy night.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm a board game nerd in training. Settlers of Catan opened the way
for me. I'll usually organize a game night with close friends about
once a month.
