Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Well, I haven't been on this site for a few years now.. so, I've
updated my profile)
I've learned so much about myself in the last two years. Thinking
about life and relationships NOT from a standpoint of what I can
get out of it, but what I can give to others and contribute. That's
not a line but something I have heartfully felt.
Honestly, two years ago I went through some hard times but came out
of it stronger and made a re-commitment to my faith. I am not going
to push or proselytize anything, but I know what looking for in a
relationship, and it does include having God at the center of it.
Just being upfront...
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Live and work in Warsaw at an orthopedic company as a financial
analyst. I attended IU in the late 90s and lived in Bloomington
for about 6
years after that, and just moved back to northern Indiana a couple
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Work-wise... pretty much the spreadsheet
guru at every workplace I've
been. Have become a self-taught Access / SQL expert within my work
Not to say I'm *good* at either of them, but I golf
in the summers, and play
winters, though not as much as I used to.
For fitness, I run in the summer and try to do P90 in the winters,
although my commitment seems to lag when the snow flies. I have
become a fairly serious runner, although I'd like to get more
serious. I keep increasing my goals; two years ago I ran my first
5K since high school, followed by a few more. This year in 2013, I
ran my first half-marathon.
The first things people usually notice about me

First Impression: Either that I'm a nice guy, or if I'm having a
bad day, that I come off as stuck-up or condescending. However,
that reaction is usually because I'm too self-conscious to just
Second and third impression is almost always that I'm a nice,
intelligent guy -- the type of guy who holds doors open for people.

Books: most Stephen King

Brink' by John Feinstein, 'Guns, Germs, and Steel' by Jared Diamond

This summer's reading material is a mix of some alt history... "Fox
on the Rhine" and "Fox at the Front" (WWII alt history), and a few
golf books ("Spirit of St Andrews" and "The Anatomy of a Golf
Course: The Art of Golf Architecture").
In general, 80s, 90s alternative, particular artists - Mellencamp
Food: spicy foods, ribs, pizza, Mexican
Movies: I see that I somehow removed the movie section at some
point. Some of my faves are Gladiator, Hoosiers, Tin Cup, Office
Space, Idiocracy, and recently Tron Legacy.

I also think quite a bit about choices I've made thus far in my
life, and how much the early choices (and the choices I chose not
to make) have affected me for better or worse.
On a typical Friday night I am

cooking (or die trying) a good meal or ordering takeout, finding a
good movie. Maybe going for a late evening run or walk while the
sun sets at a secluded city park. If it's a Friday in the
summertime, probably trying to get in a quick nine holes of golf.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Relationships have taught me that communication and honesty are
crucial. Without these qualities from the start, a relationship is
bound to fail. I think it is healthy to talk about long-range
goals. With all that said, I understand it takes time to build a

someone with a similar background. It would be nice to be able to
have a partner who can talk about the difference God has made in
OK, now for some completely trivial details:
* I was the 1992 Indiana State Geography Bee champion (yes, such a
thing exists). It's like a Spelling Bee for people who never get
lost and can't spell.
* In the 2010 and again in 2011, I tore my ACL in my right knee.
Long rehabs are no fun.
