My self-summary
You know, the real bummer about moving halfway across the country is that your love life has to start from square one. My best friend in the whole world suggested this site to me, so I thought why not see who in the York area is up for some casual dating...no pressures, just possibilities.

My name is Matt (my friends call me "Matty"), and I work and live downtown. I'm a tax accountant by day, and at night I'm either shopping for stuff to furnish my apartment or just hitting the karaoke bars to act silly and meet people.

I'm very much into music performance and songwriting. In fact, because of the move I had to leave a band I played and sang in for 11 years in the midwest. I'm hoping some musical opportunities open up here.

I'm also into skydiving (I hold an "A" license, which is for novices). My dream/goal for this summer is to do a sunset kiss jump with someone and get a good picture of it. Skydivers are good sports, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed. ;)

Other than that, I'm just a single Christian guy with a job who's always out to have a good time. Being single has its advantages, but like anyone who's been without it for awhile, I miss the opportunity to experience affection with someone...mutual chemistry is a wonderful thing.

I'm big into hockey and am a huge fan of the Chicago Blackhawks. As a former cheesehead, I love my Packers and Brew Crew as well. I love playing indoor soccer and softball when time permits, and I work out (usually at home...can anyone recommend a good club?).

I am adventurous, affectionate, and successful
What I’m doing with my life
I'm currently trying to make my downtown loft presentable. I'm still unpacking cardboard boxes, buying this & that, and arranging things where I want them. In the meantime, I've started a new job downtown and am enjoying it. Since I'm new to the area, my schedule is nowhere near as busy as it used to be, so I'm enjoying the freedom to decide at the last moment where to go each night and what to do. For example, right now I'm thinking I should treat myself to dinner at Harp & Fiddle. Their salmon is delicious beyond description.

I'm also looking for a good church, although I think I've already found the right one. It's big, contemporary, and there's a good chance they could use a bass player for their worship team.
I’m really good at
...playing the bass and singing. In fact, I'm thinking very seriously about seeing who I can gather up to start a Styx or Foreigner tribute band. If I can't find enough people who are as into Styx or Foreigner as I am then I'll see about putting together a band that specializes in that style of classic rock. Leaving my band was almost like removing one of my arms or legs. It's hard work, but I really miss performing in front of crowds.

My girls-who-are-friends tell me (and their friends) that I give the best hugs, so why not mention that here too, right?
The first things people usually notice about me
It's a toss up between my smile and my arms.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books? Yech. Books put me to sleep. Besides, they're too educational, worthwhile, and enriching. So please give up reading as soon as possible. This has been a public service message.

I like all kinds of movies, even the silly parodies. Movies in my collection include Dead Poets Society, Pump up the Volume, Minority Report, Happy Gilmore, Flatliners, Signs, Miracle, Shawshank Redemption, Titanic, Star Wars I-VI, and others. So I'm diverse as my tastes go...even a chick-flick is enough to entertain me.

As far as music goes, I love classic rock. Styx, Boston, Foreigner, Def Leppard, Rush, Cheap Trick...if they're blasting through my stereo or ipod, I'm in my happy place. That doesn't mean that I don't appreciate country or hip-hop, nor does it mean that you have to be as much of a classic rock junkie as I am. You just have to tolerate it.

Food? Yeah, I'm still thinking about that salmon across the street, so I'm typing as fast as possible! I love a good medium rare filet mignon, especially if it's accompanied with garlic mashed potatoes and crispy veggies. I also enjoy sushi (give me a spider roll or a big pile of tempura, and I'm in heaven), and hibachi. Not only is hibachi entertaining to watch, the food just melts in your mouth!
The six things I could never do without
1. My family. Not an original answer, I know, but we're a big family, and the support I get from (and give to) them is immeasurable.

2. My bass guitar...it's always been there for me, and we've been through a lot together.

3. The Chicago Blackhawks. Hearing the horn blare at the United Center when they score a goal is one of the best feelings in the world.

4. My computer. Chances are it's on your list, too, otherwise you wouldn't be on this website!

5. My television. I love to channel surf before going to bed at night, especially if a ridiculous infomercial is on. If there isn't, then hey, there's always the six nightly episodes of the Fresh Prince to choose from. And of course, without television there's no NHL hockey to watch.

6. My parachute. Especially during a jump. If I jump without it, then I can truly say I will be skydiving for the rest of my life!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
*sigh* This is where it's hard to be honest. Have you seen that commercial where the guy is holding his brand new baby next to the window and he's talking about how his life has now changed and his priorities are different, etc.? I spend a lot of time thinking about how wonderful it would be if that were me. Don't get me wrong; I'm not looking for an instant mommy. I just would like to set the first domino in motion that eventually gets me to that place. I'm in no hurry for either marriage or a family, but I'd like to be at a point in my life where I know it is going to happen, rather than having to hope or wonder if it is going to happen. I daydream a lot about coming home from work and seeing an adorable little boy or girl shout "Daddy's home!!" Or seeing my son play in his first school band concert, or seeing my daughter do her thing on the balance beam at Penn State 20 years from now.

Not a manly answer, I know, but I have to be honest.
On a typical Friday night I am
Well lately it's a variety of things. If the Friday we're talking about was a clear sunny day then I am probably out at a restaurant with other skydivers, talking about the day's jumps. Or I could be out looking for something for my apartment, treating myself to dinner, or staying in and relaxing in front of the TV. I may pop in a kenpo karate video, down an energy drink, and have at it. If Styx or Foreigner are performing within a two-hour drive, I am there, whether I have a companion or not. Is a sports team at home? Then I'll throw a jersey on and root for my favorite team. Like I said, since I've just moved here, I can choose my own adventure pretty much every night.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have an envy problem (no, not *that* envy problem). I envy the guys who can do and say just the right things in the bars to capture the interest of the lovely women that (unfortunately) hang out there. I've tried the backwards baseball cap thing where I buy a women a drink, or approach a small group of women to introduce myself...and it gets me next-to-nowhere. I look in the mirror and see nothing less than what those ex-jock goofs have, so I must be doing something wrong. I know that bars are god-awful places to meet the right person, but I still wish I were suave enough to fit in, and confident enough to keep the interest of the females. It's all about the confidence. My doctor had some great advice: "Fake it 'till you make it." In other words, pretend to be confident until it finally feels natural. I'm working on it. Bars are a good place to practice, but I know I won't meet Miss Right at one.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 27–66
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating
You should message me if
You should message me if my pictures make your heart beat faster (because let's face it--even though chemistry isn't the most important thing, it does have to be there). You should message me if you've outgrown that stage where you're into the disrespectful losers in the bar and are ready to be pampered by a guy who's got it all together. It's a bonus if you've never been married and don't have children, but not a deal-breaker if that's not the case. Ideally, I would love to go through that whole process (again: *eventually*) with someone who also has never been down that road...so it's uncharted territory for both of us.

Oh, I almost forgot! If you're who's willing to share a kiss while freefalling at 120+mph (no skydiving experience necessary, believe it or not), then you should definitely message me! You'll make one of this young man's dreams come true!
