Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Distilling myself down into a few paragraph, I don't know about
that. I'm an Aggie with deep roots in College Station. Politically,
I have liberal libertarian leanings, can't stand to listen to what
has become of talk radio, but consume information across the
spectrum. I enjoy other people's opinions, but prefer them to be
fact based. I like spirited, challenging conversation, and that
almost requires a difference of opinions. A conversation in which
two people totally agree makes for some weak tea. Skeptical but not
cynical. Maybe a little too interested in solving problems, one of
the smartest things I ever heard was the advice that "If you
haven't been asked for a solution, don't give it." I've taken it to
heart and hope that I've learned not to try to solve someone's
problems when all they want is a sympathetic ear
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working way too much, it seems that there is always something left
undone at work, and I like to feel useful. I've never been a strict
"get there at eight and clock out at five sharp" person. I'm trying
to spend more time cycling, gardening. Oh and watching TV, isn't
that what people do?
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Seeing issues or problems from multiple angles. Cooking for 2-20.
Knowing where I'm going when driving.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books, I don't get to read nearly as much as I'd like. 3-4 books a
month wasn't uncommon for me, now it's significantly less. I've
been liking new fiction from Richard K Morgan, in non fiction I've
been slowly making my way through Thinking Fast And Slow by Daniel
TV, I've never watched a minute of "reality" tv and plan to keep it
that way. I'm mourning the passing of Walter White. I live the IT
Crowd, so that makes me smile. Looking forward to more Sherlock and
Game of Thrones, they can't make those fast enough for me.
Movies,- I hate going to movies alone, so I don't go to the movies
all that often. I'm game for anything but giant robots beating on
Music, like any child of the 70s, the music of my youth will always
resonate with me. Rush, Queen, Floyd, etc. Pandora is a lot of fun,
it sometimes plays something that I've never heard before but find
Food, I fit the dictionary definition of an omnivore. Love
ethnic/fusion food. I think the new wave of food trucks is a
delight, and support them as often as I can.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
my mobile personal computer (smart phone)
McDonald's french fries.
the sound of a pretty woman's laughter.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I think about how long it's been since I've had someone to look
forward to coming home to. Sometimes I feel I've forgotten how to
do that, how to look forward to five o'clock and be excited to
I have two very good friends that I have deep conversations with...
the nature of reality, the meaning of life, God, eternity, the
definition of good and evil, how far down the rabbit hole really
goes. We also talk about Star Wars.
Oh, and WORLD DOMINATION of course :)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Working too late, eating standing up in my kitchen, probably
whatever I can rummage from the fridge, slapped between two pieces

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You can handle authentic free flowing conversations, that
effortlessly shift from one topic to another. I'm not looking to
hop into bed with someone, but like exploring women, getting to
know them, making them smile, becoming friends. If you've actually
read this far, you should know that I don't initiate contact very
often, if you've made it this far you should say hi :)
