Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a low-key guy. I want to meet someone who can start out as
friends and see where it goes from there. You likely won't be
getting kissed at the end of the first date. A lot of girls misread
that as timidness, but to me, it's just the natural progression.
Doesn't mean I'm not interested, or that I'm too shy, it just means
I'm not a man-whore. Intimacy isn't something to be thrown around
in my mind, and it has to be earned. That being said, if you really
make a great impression, who knows.
I'm fiercely loyal to my friends, family and significant other, and
expect the same in return. I like to listen to, play, and record
music - I used to be a studio recording engineer professionally,
but I needed a life outside of work, so I left that behind and
moved on. I've played in bands (guitar, bass, keyboards, dabbled in
drums), and I have an eclectic taste in musical styles everything
from Peter Gabriel, to (hed)P.E. ... James Taylor to Tower Of
Power... Alison Krauss & Union Station to Skinny Puppy.
I love to spend time outdoors, going kayaking, hiking, camping, or
just laying in the grass in the park or backyard. I have a constant
desire to create/maintain/improve things... like landscaping,
creating new software, woodworking is an interest I'm starting to
pick up on... right now I'm fleshing out some ideas for speaker
stands and an audio desk / workstation.

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: The Celestine Prophecy (series), Steven King... do audio
trade magazines count?
Movies: Suspense, Thrillers... or on the flip side, really anything
that makes you walk away feeling different than when you walked in.
A movie you can identify with, and that can evoke some emotion from
you. Fav movie is A Beautiful Mind.
Shows: I don't watch too many TV shows... but when I do it's
usually escapism kind of stuff (like something to let you cool down
from a long day and get you out of that "work mode" state of mind),
or History/Science Channel, or some Bobby Flay to get ideas for
Music: I guess I kind of answered this one above.
Food: meat and potatoes... Spicy things, Mexican... Anything with
tons of flavor. I love to grill.
Ever try cinnamon and beer in your chili? How about cooling fresh
mint in a spicy mexican dish? Brown sugar and bourbon -marinated
skirt steak? Fennel-brined, pecan-crusted chicken? (or maybe a
paprika rub and orange sauce) ...Got you hungry yet?

What I'll end up writing in this box.
On a typical Friday night I am

wondering what can be done to make it atypical.
