Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi all, I have not been online in a while, and if you sent me a
message and I did not reply I apologize. It's April and time to get
I'm a professional guy living and working in Center City Philly. I
work pretty hard and enjoy what I do quite a lot. I'm also an avid
runner and triathlete. I can be happy going out in the city or
curling up with wine and a book.
One of the hardest things in life is to be comfortable with
yourself. I don't need to justify my existence by being in a
relationship just so I'm not alone. That doesn't mean I want to be
alone, in fact I would really like to have a partner to be my
friend, lover, and confident. But it needs to be on equal terms. I
want someone who is equally as comfortable with themselves,
confident, and independent. But be a little immature, playful, and
sarcastic, because life is serious enough.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Enjoying it, mostly. These days that means a lot of training for
triathlon. When I'm not doing that I'm enjoying city life. That
means I like to walk, eat, and explore.
I work a fair amount. I have a small business and we do medical
research, mostly on cancer and HIV. What I do is important to who I
am. I can go to work each day and learn something new.
What I'd like to be doing is sharing my life with someone who has
similar interests, but also enough differences so that we can learn
from each other and build something new together.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
My job. Cooking. Running.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I smile and I'm polite. How do I know what people actually notice
about me? I have no idea, meet me and we can answer this one.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Hmmm, this is a hard one. Variety is important!
I have pretty eclectic tastes. I like a variety of movies and I'd
hate to pick something cliche. Quentin Tarantino is great but so is
Star Wars. I've been known to go to animation festivals. Dr.
Zhivago is one of my favorite classic movies. I do a lot of
technical reading so when I relax its junk, mainly
I'm a foodie. My son is in culinary school, so I've been exposed to
a lot of different foods. I've traveled around the world on
business and always made a point to try something new. I really
enjoy cooking, and I think it's pretty romantic if we could share a
glass of wine and talk while I cooked.
I like standard jazz, classic rock, and quite a lot of current
music. Honestly when it comes to music I need to hear it because
it's so subjective. I went to the opera once and fell asleep.
Education only goes so far!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Good food and friends.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Training. I run and do triathlon.
Meeting someone. It's time.
Family and friends
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Am ready to go to the gym and unwind, get some dinner, then pass
out. Usually it's been a long week!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Is not something I'm going to share on here in the open. That's
between us when we get to know each other.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You have something interesting to say. I enjoy chatting but I hope
it will be a little more thoughtful than 'what's up?'
