Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I grew up primarily in the New York City area, the only son of a
divorced mother. I moved to Albuquerque in 2003, mostly because I
had to move and my half-brother lives here. I have a bachelor's
degree in animal science from Cornell, an associate's degree in
jewelry design from FIT, and an associate's degree in veterinary
technology from CNM. Although I consider myself to be a man of
science, I have an interest in Paganism, a nature religion. I am
also a member of the Unitarian Universalist Church. I'm an art
jewelry designer and I like to make things. I'm fairly
conscientious environmentally, and my politics are decidedly to the
left. I used to be into the Gothic scene, and still appreciate a
somewhat dark and mysterious esthetic. I tend to be a serious
person who worries a lot but I do appreciate good humor. I love
animals ( I work with them for a living) and have one long-haired
black cat. I also enjoy reading, listening to KUNM on the radio (I
don't own a TV), bicycling, dancing (on occasion), decorating my
apartment, and taking good care of my car. I recognize a need to
get out into nature more often.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm currently employed as a registered veterinary technician at a
local animal clinic. I'm also working on getting my jewelry
business off the ground. My main goal is to live a healthy,
contented, and creative life. It would be nice to make a little
more money someday, maybe get a house or something, but it's not an

Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm generally adept at intellectual pursuits and have always done
well at school. Sometimes the real world presents a challenge,
however. I'm also good at designing and making things with my

Some people have said I look like Morrissey of the Smiths. I
recently changed my hairstyle and look less so now. I am currently
growing my hair longer.

I sometimes crossdress for kicks. Have done it a few times lately
for special occasions. My style is somewhat Gothic (all black), not
super feminine. I'm aiming more for androgyny. Not really into
heels or makeup. I think most men's fashion is rather boring and I
like the idea of making a fashion statement. Hey, you gals can wear
men's clothing and nobody cares! (Of course, women have a lot more
serious problems to deal with in this society.) Honestly, though, I
don't take this whole crossdressing thing so seriously! By the way,
I am most definitely heterosexual. Guess I still might scare many
of you women off with this information. Oh, well! I think it best
to mention it from the start.

We seem to have a lot in common, you are open-minded, and you are
reasonably attractive. Just being honest. I am not desperate for a
partner at any cost. I have lived alone for many years now. No
