Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hey there, I'm Roy.
I strongly believe common interests are integral in starting
communication, but differing interests will lead to growth for both
members of a relationship.
I can be really shy and quiet at times, especially when I get
around people I don't know. Once I get to know a person, especially
knowing what we have in common, I will open up. I'm not a partier.
I've tried drinking and I honestly don't get the appeal.
I really enjoy classic movies. I've got a book called 1001 Movies
You Must See Before You Die. It is a goal of mine to see as many of
them as I can. I've seen well over 300 of them at this point.
Friends and coworkers tell me I'm smart, nice, caring, funny and
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm taking each day as it comes. For the most part, its pretty
predictable. Work, eat, sleep. While I generally like life being
predictable, a little change in routine would be nice.
Besides my full-time job, I also have 2 small-businesses. One deals
in medical technology and I am part-owner with my two best friends
from high school. The other involved the digital restoration of
old, public domain books.
I’m really good at

my job. After over 16 years on the job, I've made myself extremely
valuable. Sometimes, I have to work at multiple locations each
I find myself being taught new things frequently. I've done almost
every job imaginable at my library.
I'm also good at working with technology. I can usually find my way
around a phone, computer or TV without an instruction manual
(though I'm not afraid to use the manual if I need it).
I used to be quite good on the cello, but it has been a long time
since I played.
Saying the right thing, but phrasing it the wrong way.

Lately, its been my shoes. Packers green and gold has a tendency to
Its a little unusual because normally people don't notice me. I had
a coworker begin to refer to me as a ninja because she'd look up
from a book and I was there. She never heard me or saw me.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
In the grand scheme of things, there is nothing I could never do
without besides sustenance, a roof over my head and the freedom to
live my life as I desire. While the Internet, TV and a cellphone
are things I have come to rely on, I could probably survive without
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
working until 9, then at home. I haven't had much reason to go out
on a Friday night. I just have no interest in bars.
But I'd love to have a reason.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

a different way, that's all.
