Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Stupidity makes me crazy.
If you send me an email without reading my profile through, I will
think you stupid and we will never meet.... so read or don't write.
I WILL know the difference.
You know.... summarizing me is all relative. Different people see
me very differently. I guess like beauty, it's in the eyes of the
One thing noone contradicts is that I'm smart and I learn fast. If
you can teach it, I can learn it - and then teach it myself.
I am socially liberal & fiscally conservative. I barely bought
myself anything expensive before buying my first house.
I am loyal to those who are loyal to me. I don't believe in letting
outside forces compromise relationships - they live or die on their
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Professionally, I'm currently a computer programmer and team lead
for a bank. I dance whenever I can without driving myself crazy
driving, parking, or staying awake driving (which means these days
I usually only dance in NYC if I have someone to drive with, which
is a bit of a drag..the best regular dances are in Manhattan). That
leaves me dancing an average of 2 or 3 nights a month in NJ. I also
exercise 2-3 times most weeks. I volunteer from time to time, in
animal welfare, and teaching(teaching dance, tutoring kids or
teaching high school classes in personal financial literacy)
I have a fireplace that I have yet to use, would like to enjoy it
with the right company.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Logic. Dancing. Teaching almost anything I know how to do well and
even some things I learn as I teach.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Haven't read much lately - except health-related. Read a couple of
books by Jilian Michaels (she's fantastic at communicating the
stuff). Used to read a lot of Robert Ludlum, the Harry Potter
books, & some self help books. I'm a trekkie and have been
since the early 70s. I even have Star Trek memorabilia (maybe that
should have been in "The most private thing I'm willing to admit".
I like most music, except rap. Classical puts me to sleep. I love
country and as a swing dancer, I pretty much live for any 8 count
music I can dance to. I like lots of ethnic food, but try to keep
strong spice & dairy to a minimum.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My brain, wait, sometimes i wish i didnt have one, so maybe that
doesnt belong here?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Is he out there? Did I already meet him and we didnt recognize each
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Historically, dancing. Recently, no particular place or activity.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm not as private a person as I probably should be.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You know how to put 2 sentences together. You want to get to know
someone amazing and out of the box. You get that everyone over the
age of 4 has baggage and that in truly relating to another human
being, you each take a side and carry.
If you are going to write and talk and give me reason to believe
you might actually be a good guy and then vanish before we meet -
go back to your wife (because I figure you're married if you're
playing that game) and don't write me. If you really are a good
guy, and single, write me. If we make plans to get together...and
you change your mind or can't make it - don't be a coward. Have the
guts and decency to say so - beforehand & honestly (interesting
how men seem to either just not show up without cancelling, or use
their moms as an excuse to cancel and then never reschedule. Funny
how they think I am stupid enough to believe it. Scary that they
are stupid enough to believe I believe it. You would think that
nonsense was outgrown in elementary school).
If you live far away, take note: I've already been there, done that
with LDRs and I'm not doing it again. If you write me and you live
far away, YOU are going to be doing the traveling and potentially
moving, so if either of those is not an option for you, don't play
I am not a cougar - so no cubs please. Intelligent, kind, patient,
responsible, mature men only need apply.
You start your email with 'Peanut Butter', or some other way to
make me know you read the profile. I get a lot of emails that look
like they could have been sent to absolutely anyone or
If you rated me highly, don't be shy...drop me a line.
