Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi, I'm Shawn. I think the best way to sum me up is the way a
friend descibed, 'quiet but cool'. The 'quiet' part, I can be a bit
on the shy side when I first meet someone. But it's something I'm
always working to improve about myself. The 'cool' part, I guess
I'll let you judge just how cool I really am. I tend to have a 'go
with the flow' attitude toward most things but not afraid to make
the decision when needed. I lean toward a sarcastic sense of humor
and good for a few one liners from time to time. Anything else
you'd want to know, just go ahead and ask. I'll try not to be too
shy when I answer. (That was a poor attempt at a little joke)
My two main mantras:
Everything happens for a reason and anyhing can be a good, fun time
if you're with the right people.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Well, I work as a scientist for the company that makes Oreos among
other things. When I'm not playing in the lab, I love to travel and
finding new places to explore. I play volleyball in a few different
leagues in the area and trivia night with friends. Of course I
enjoy the typical music, movies, sports (especially hockey), etc.
I'm always on the look out for new things to try at least once.
Some might just take a bit of convincing to try out. I'm also a new
home owner already with a list of things to do.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Apparently I'm pretty good at bar trivia. Here's to amassing a
wealth of useless information.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm a really easy going person and really easy to get to know.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Favorite authors: James Rollins, Dan Brown and someone a little
more classical, Alfred Tennyson.
Movies: Far too many to list them all but I Love You Man,
Cannonball Run II, Casino, Miracle, Gettysburg, Serenity are just a
few. Overall a fan of action, comedy, drama and but not a huge
horror fan unless you agree to hold my hand during the scary parts.
(Another attempt at some humor. I'm sorry)
TV: Same kind of show genres as movie genres. A few would be Family
Guy, Archer, Game of Thrones, Defiance, etc.
Music: Definitely a majority rock fan, from pop-rock to heavy
metal. Two all time favorite bands are Offspring and Live. But also
enjoy a rather large variety of music, from classical to EDM
nowadays somehow. Just not a big rap or country music fan but a
good song is a good song.
Food: love seafood and always up for just a good hoagie. (Can you
tell I'm originally from south Jersey since I said hoagie?)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
In no particular order:
(And I'd have to be practical and say my glasses as well since I'm
blind as a bat without them)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
All the things that now come along with owning a home and thinking
about possible destinations for my next vacation.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Usually relaxing after a week of work, either out with friends or
just at home catching up on housework or planning for the weekend.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That you'll just have to ask. Can't just give that away right off
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You think we have some things in common, some things we could learn
from each other and you'd like to get to know a normal guy.
