Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi guys, I'm Dave. Here's a little about me:
What I'm into: I am a big music nerd! I love to search for new
bands, catch concerts, and make mixes for friends. I play guitar
and sing for fun. I take lessons twice a month and would love to
form a band some day. I am also a big hiker. I go hiking just about
every weekend from early Spring through late Fall. I am also trying
to visit all 59 US national parks. By the end of this year, I
should be about half-way to that goal. I'm kind of a political
junky. I love to be a spectator and armchair quarterback when it
comes to governing our country. I have strong opinions but I am
always repectful of those who disagree with me. I'm also a big
Broncos and Avalanche fan.
Who I am: From a personality standpoint, I like to define myself as
somewhere in the middle of the introvert/extrovert continuum. I
like being around people and making new connections, but I also
value my downtime and independence. I strive to be a considerate
and loyal friend. I also love to make people laugh. My sense of
humor can be pretty irreverent since I don't take too many things
too seriously (including myself). I'm a serious day dreamer, so
it's not uncommon to find me lost in thought!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work for a large financial firm in Denver. I recently made a
career change within the same company and it has been a great move
overall. I was definitely ready for the change and the new
challenges that came with it. All that said, I don't necessarily
like to define myself by what I do for a living. I like that my
career choice gives me the time and freedom to pursue my outdoorsy
and creative hobbies.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Creative stuff. I get a lot of satisfaction out of engaging my need
to create, be it writing, playing music, or finding a unique way to
present a topic at work. Oh yeah, and I consider myself to be
pretty good at karaoke.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My loud voice and big smile. And I supose my ears... they do stick
out a bit...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I tend to read Sci Fi and my favorite series is Dan Simmons'
Hyperion Cantos. I just got into David Mitchell (Cloud Atlas was
incredible). I also like to read about politics and history. I tend
to find myself reading The Economist more than anything else these
Movies: The Godfather Trilogy, V For Vendetta, Ghostbusters, Mel
Brooks films (Spaceballs, History of the World, Blazing Saddles),
The Lord of the Rings Trilogy, Almost Famous, High Fidelity, Kill
Music: My favorites are Pink Floyd, Peter Gabriel, U2, Yes, Talking
Heads, and Depeche Mode. In general, I'm into modern and classic
rock, blues, classic soul, and some electronic stuff. I'm not
generally into top 40 pop, rap, or country.
Lately I've been really into Orphan Black, the Black List, and
Under The Dome (admittedly a guilty pleasure). How To Get Away With
Murder, Twelve Monkeys, and Looking have all held my attention
lately. I like to laugh so I usually try to catch the Tonight Show,
Drunk History, and @Midnight whenever possible.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Music, music, music, warm weather for hiking, New York pizza, my
family, and... oh yeah... music.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Politics and (you guessed it) music. I also spend plenty of time
dreaming up new story ideas. I suppose that I also think a lot
about where life is taking me/where I'm taking my life. I don't
really believe in fate or destony, so I guess its more of where I'm
taking my life.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Hanging out with friends. I'm happy going out or staying in as long
as the company is good!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I hate cleaning. Dishes pile up in the sink and dust collects all
over my apartment. I'm the only one who ever sees this though, as I
become a cleaning whirl wind before guests come over!
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You've reached this point and like what you've read. I am primarily
looking for guys to date at this point. New friends are great too.
I have an allergic reaction to game-playing and flakiness. Arrogant
people piss me off. Only non-smokers, please (trying to quit
doesn't count). My ideal guy is considerate, funny, and someone who
can laugh at himself now and then. People who like to hike, travel,
and go to concerts should move to the front of the line!
