Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hello! I'm here looking for someone who is similar to me, but not a
carbon copy. Similarities between two people provide a foundation,
but differences provide opportunities to build, grow and
experience. It's all about finding the right mix!
A little about me. I get to spend my day doing what I love -
writing. I am a technical writer. I write business communications,
manuals, policies and proposals. I would much rather spend my day
writing in more of a creative environment, but I feel fortunate to
at least be doing something I enjoy. I have my Master's Degree in
English so beyond my love of writing is a small obsession with
literature. Whenever I have a moment of down time or need a brief
escape, I pick up a book. My area of focus in Graduate School was
Renaissance Drama, but my taste in literature is widely diverse. I
am well traveled. I spent a year studying in Japan. I have visited
Germany, Slovakia, Austria and the Netherlands. My favorite weekend
getaway is New York City. I try to get to New York three or four
times a year to take in a couple of Broadway shows (I've seen
nearly 80 shows in NYC), eat at some of the finest restaurants, and
just people watch. I enjoy taking in the occasional Indians or Cavs
game, but when it comes to sports it all about Ohio State football
for me. I enjoy taking Sunday drives looking for obscure antiques
shops. Yard sales, garage sales, and flea markets are enjoyable
summer activities. I'm always searching for a Little Golden Book to
add to my collection. I have about 500 different Little Golden Book
which means I still need to find over 1000 to complete my
collection. I am an avid biker. I've biked up to 100 miles in one
day, but usually try to get in a 20 mile ride whenever the weather
permits. Biking across the country is on my bucket list. Winter is
my favorite season. My newest endeavor is attempting to teach
myself to cook - an experiment that to date is having mixed
I'm laidback. I'm social, but find I do better in small groups. I
might seem quiet at first, but trust me once I open up there is no
turning back. I prefer a quiet night staying in to a night bouncing
around town. I don't do the bar scene anymore nor do I really
drink. I like to try new restaurants - there isn't a food I've come
across that I don't enjoy. I enjoy sitting in a local coffee shop,
a small ice cream store and visiting used book stores.
I'm genuine and open. I comfortable and confident. I want to
experience something new everyday. I'm looking for someone who
wants to do the same.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I enjoyed graduate school so much the first time, I've decided to
pursue another masters degree part time. Keeps me pretty
To pay the bills I am a technical writer so at least I still get to
spend time doing what I enjoy - writing.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Perhaps my bald head. I was bored late one night about eight years
ago and - well - my hair paid the price. Since then I have
attempted to grow it back, but always get annoyed at a certain
stage in the growth process when I start to resemble a chia pet...

Having recently completed my Masters Degree in English Literature,
it should come as no surprise that I am an avid reader. I read a
little bit of everything, but my primary area of interest is
Renaissance Drama - you know, Shakespeare, Marlowe, Johnson, Kyd,
Dekker and Beaumont just to name a few. As far as contemporary
authors: David Foster Wallace, John Irving, E. L. Doctorow, Michael
Cunningham, Jonathan Letham and Dan Chaon. I also can't resist a
book by Nathanial Hawthorne, Henry James, Jane Austen and
Hemmingway. I really like to read!
I don't get to the movies much. It's not that I don't enjoy a good
movie, but unfortunately it seems that I never can find the time. I
did recently go see "The Great Gatsby" and thought it was
I would much rather go to the theater. I like to spend free
weekends traveling to NYC to catch as many shows as I can. I enjoy
everything from modern contemporary drama to the reaniassance works
of Shakespeare and his contemporaries.
As for music, It has to be country. I don't mind listening to other
forms, but my car's radio is always tuned to the country
Finally, food - let me just put it this way, if it is edible I'll
give it a try, and in all likelihood discover that I enjoy it.
Food, especially anything sweet and sugary, is a joy I can't
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. The obvious choice - my family.
2. A good used bookstore.
3. My passport.
4. Dessert after dinner.
5. My morning bicycle rides.
6. Sadly - the internet.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I never stop thinking. I think about anything and everything. A
short quote from a book I am reading can keep me occupied with
thought for hours. A conversation with friends could distract me
days later as I search through the words for clarity and meaning. A
random flower along my bike path...a stranger oblivious to my
stare...why decaf coffee beans aren't as oily as regular coffee
beans...the past...the present...the future...are a few of the many
things I tend to think about.
