Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Driven, extrovert, outdoors, do international work, love people,
like music & dancing, enjoy all types of movie, went to Whitman
college, I'm a dreamer and optimist but also focus on the beauty of
the "here and now". Really like a broad range and types of people -
this defines me well.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Enjoying everything I do and expanding duration sports such as
hiking, sking and biking. I like philanthropic endeavors. Just
completed long term house remodel - much of it I did myself.
Re-connecting with some old friends and making new ones. Enjoy
theatre, symphony and particularly movies - European and indie too.
Seahawks fan and attend games. Spend as much time as possible
outdoors, gardening and sports - love fresh air. Work out daily in
gym or outside to stay fit. Looking at some hiking trips in Peru
and Yosemite, biking in S. France/Italy, fly fishing in Montana and
kings in Alaska. Skiing in Colorado, Montana, Utah Idaho. Have
seasons pass to Stevens.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Meeting people. I like to connect and inspire people. People have
commented I've helped them see positive attributes in themselves
they were not aware of or had been recognized. I love my
international work in Africa, Europe and every country in Asia -
communications, film, bus. dev., marketing, gov affairs. Helping
others find great qualities in themselves is a big factor in my
life. I also enjoy meeting/engaging with interesting, unique and
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Very communicative- love experiences & people doing and trying
new things. I am fortunate to have 5 sisters (2 sets of twins)
& 9 nieces- they have taught me well- I am comfortable w/&
admire the great attrributes women possess - in all (their)
flavors. I genuinley enjoy the nuances and" glue" women bring to
this world. And, I can actually track 3 conversations going on at
once growing up with all these women.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
All kinds of movies & books - too many to list, this includes
European movies and non-main stream types too. Same with food- the
world is our oyster. Love seafood, Mexican, spicy; pretty much all
types, especially when shared w/a woman who enjoys talking and
sharing the whole experience. Music- classic rock, r&b, modern,
pop, country/rock, classical. My fam performs in symphonies and
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Faith in God
4. Engaging people w/great attitude & demeanor
5. Outdoors/being active/fun. I'm attracted to high energy and
intelligent women. Chill time is good too.
6. Skis, bikes and hiking gear.
7. Intimacy & physical contact- reg touching is a good &
healthy way to live (yes this includes kissing, holding hands,
massages and whatever I can do to bring you joy).
8. Big beliver in dreaming large; good things happen when we do.
Also smelling the roses and living in the NOW.
9. Above - yes, I colored outside the lines.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Ways to improve others lives- mine too- goal oriented- enjoy &
embrace life to the fullest. I'm kind of a self learning junkie -
love to absorb all kinds of "stuff" in reading about medical
advancements, anthropology, astronomy, sports, global affairs,
gardening (love it), food receipes....you name it, I love to LEARN.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I have no" typical" fri night- open to any and all options
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I error on trusting people too much, however I'd rather operate on
the premise of engagement than one of fear, so until someone proves
me wrong I accept and embrace all people. I can improve me; judging
others is a waste of time and self-absorbed.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you have an enthusiastic, positive, helpful, loving, kind, view
and approach toward life. You like people, are optimistic, in
shape, enjoy a vast array of experiences. Whatever the situation
you're able to see/turn rain into rainbows. I admire women who have
a "free spirit"; not afraid to let your hair down, stand up for
your beliefs and convictions and willing to let yourself "sing"
literally or figuratively even if off key :) And you might enjoy
meeting someone with similar values- let me know. Matthew
