Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I loathe summarizing myself, but I suppose if I'm to do this, I may
as well do it right.
Let's see, I work too much for too little. I'm painfully shy around
new people but once I get to know someone I kind of do a complete
180 and have almost no personal boundaries at all.
I can get a little jealous and clingy as well as a bit
over-protective. At my age, I suspect it's part of my personality
that isn't going to ever change.
I live my life to the soundtrack in my head. There is always music.
(I have a tendency to hum/sing out loud despite a complete
inability to actually carry a tune....)
I try to see the silver lining to any situation - or barring that,
I'm often the subject of good-natured teasing (at least, I assume
it's good-natured) because I have a laundry list of quirks that are
ripe for it.
I enjoy traveling, though I can't do as much of it as I'd like.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Right now I'm just getting through it a day at a time. I work and I
sleep and I don't do much else.
I'd like to get back into school, but there always seems to be
something else I have to do first.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
...laughing at myself. If you can't humor yourself, who can you
I consider myself a good writer, but I suppose that's subjective. I
am a good cook, though. I'd have to be since that's kind of my job.
I like to think I'm a good listener.
The first things people usually notice about me

Not a question I usually ask people, but I suppose... my fondness
for the color orange?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books - I love to read and have rather eclectic tastes. I love
authors from David Weber to Shakespeare and just about everything
Movies - Star Trek. Anything Marvel. Anything with Karl Urban in
it. I'm not a fan of 'stupid' humor in my movies. I just watched
'This Means War' and it was exactly my style of comedy.
TV - Criminal Minds, Star Trek, StarGate, NCIS, Agents of Shield,
Almost Human, Eureka
Music - My musical tastes can be somewhat random. I love Garth
Brooks and Linkin Park, Loreena McKennit and Justin Timberlake. My
favorite music, tends to be foreign. Korean and Latino, Japanese
and Russian, a little German tossed in for good measure. I also
Food - I'll try any food once as long as it doesn't have fish in it
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Family. Friends. Music. Things to read. my laptop. my phone.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
life, the universe, and everything.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
at work. My job requires me to work on Friday nights, though
seniority means that I'm finally getting out early enough to still
enjoy myself... of course, that usually means just going home and
reading a book or playing WoW.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have problems with people significantly bigger than I am. Someone
6'5 and built like a brick house would probably make me flinch
every time you walked up to me until I got used to you. My friends
joke that my own shadow makes me jump, though, so... don't take it
personally? I'm not a big scaredy-cat, nor is there any violence in
my history that I'm aware of.
It's just a visceral reaction. I really can't help it.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
...you have an open mind and are willing to let a person be
themselves. ...you can be serious, but are willing to have fun and
be silly - or at least let me be silly enough for both of us.
Deal Breakers (i.e. types of people who shouldn't bother with me)
1. Homophobes. Your life, your opinions, but we wouldn't get
2. People who dislike children. I have two and while they don't
live with me, they're very important to me.
3. Tea Party Supporters. Your life, your opinions, but batshit
insane is batshit insane.
