Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I live in Decatur, Georgia I do IT Security for a multinational in
the Atlanta area. I love what I do because every day makes me have
to think so I would imagine since taking this job my critical
thinking level has grown stronger and inquisitive nature has been
satisfied at work.
I love talking politics philosophy and religion, so I appreciate
strong personalities. My philosophy on life: whatever turns you
About two and a half years ago I had neck surgery for some cervical
bones that were impacting my nerves and had C4-7 replaced with
cadaver bones and a metal plate and some screws put in. It's been a
rough go of it but I think I've come out better on the other side
since I know a lot more about who I am. I've been having a great
time getting back out and meeting new people since I took it easy
the last couple of years.
I love hearing about other people's passion. That is the one way I
will listen to anyone talk about almost anything. The light in
their eyes, their exuberance. It is transfixing for me.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Riding around with the top down and enjoying life, climbing Stone
Mountain, yoga classes on occasion for core strength and
stretching, hitting the local bar or music venue to hang with
friends. Sitting in a bookstore and reading or swimming in the pool
with a drink in my hand. Being lazy on the couch while I watch
movies. Learning, reading books - it is a great way to escape
without plunging too much time into the TV or computer. I
grudgingly admit that the Kindle I got for Christmas back in 2010
was a great present and have bought a bunch of books at 2am. A lot
better than restlessly sleeping and running to the bookstore as
soon as you get up to get the next book in a series you weren't
sure you'd like.
I absolutely have to have friends that are doing things and moving
forward or backwards, so long as they are moving. I love to hear
about others experiences and seeing someone so intense about a
particular subject is the real joy of life. I'd love to share my
interests and indulge in yours.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Getting to know others, relating to other people, debating about
things that probably don't really matter in the scheme of things,
surfing wikipedia using my click-throughs as a stream of
consciousness, improving during one of our monthly murder mysteries
I run, and just having a good laugh. I enjoy traveling occasionally
though I admit I've been to a fair number of places so that often
takes a back seat to experiencing events here in Atlanta. Having an
The first things people usually notice about me

Sense of humor maybe - the fact I smile and laugh a whole whole
lot? The fact that if I see someone in a group not engaged in a
conversation, I seek them out because they often have the most
interesting things to bring to the table.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Favorite books are pretty much anything by attorneys turned
authors, historical fiction, some fantasy, a small bit of sci-fi,
books on philosophy and religion.
I love almost all music, though if you are a music snob I will
think you are way cooler than I because I don't know a lot of names
of things and probably haven't heard what you are listening
I love lots of movies. I mean lots. I am a total sucker for a
cliche romantic movie, but would honestly prefer a thriller of some
sort or a mystery. If I had to say favorite movie of all time, I
can't help putting the Dark Crystal since ever since I saw that in
elementary school that's the default answer. I do love a good 80's
movie, cheese and all.
Food is anything that isn't really spicy. I will probably eat the
spicy but then sweat a lot and my stomach will explode so best to
keep me on the kiddie table for that kind of meal...but I will try!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Google, companionship, food, the sun, sleep and my cats. Even
though they're both jerks in their own way.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Other people's motivation, my own motivation, how things work, why
we are here, what comes after, Quis Custodiet Custodes Ipsos, what
might have been, where I am heading, where you are heading and why.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Out with friends. Trying to chase a good dance floor or if I decide
I can't find that with friends at least a good house party.
Occasionally a cup of tea and an early night.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I met my ex-girlfriend online and she hated me. Then we met in a
gay bar and hit it off somehow. At which point I pretended not to
recognize her until we got to know each other better.
I will admit the most embarrassing thing that has happened to me in
a while which is telling Wanda Yom Tempko that NPR should play less
classical music - though I was referring to Classic Cup Concert,
not Afternoon Classics...also I didn't know who she was, only that
at the time she worked for NPR!
