Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
UPDATE: I'm now living in Lynnwood (since Nov. 1).
UPDATE: I am a bit on the shy side, so I may want to send you a
message, but just haven't pulled the trigger. So if you want to get
something started, please feel free. I promise if I see your
message I will respond, respectfully and considerately!
UPDATE: I am separated. We have been split for over a year and a
half and there's no going back. But we haven't finalized for
financial reasons. This won't last forever. I hope this won't get
in the way of finding my next someone special, but I understand
this will be a deal breaker for some :) I don't need a piece of
paper to define my morality.
I love to laugh as much as possible. When you're laughing, nothing
else matters. I'm funny, intelligent, responsible and enjoy doing
many different things. Not usually an instigator, but will join in
most anything if it sounds fun.
Btw, it drives me nuts that women put "Don't message me if you're
just going to say 'Hi' or 'Wassup?'" If you have to tell them, it's
probably too late..let them screw it up and move on! ;)

volleyball and board games, and hopefully meet a new someone

acceptable solution. I'm also good at making people feel at ease.
Also Backgammon and volleyball!

Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
