Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am an attentive, chivalrous and genuine guy. I recognize that
your time and presence is a gift, and I'm looking for a like-minded
explorer/companion who aims to live life to its fullest, laughing
all the way to the finish line.
I'm an extremely loving person. I am blessed/cursed with the
tendency to look at people with rose- colored glasses, quick to
notice the heroic, the beautiful, the eternal. All people elicit my
sympathy and compassion -- some just take longer than others.
I value art, artists, creating. Music, literature, theater, food...
all of it. I have a voracious appetite in this realm.
Sadly, I am not handy when it comes to cars, computers and the
like. If I'm assembling IKEA for you, you are guaranteed to hear
expletives, and you will possess a flawed but functional piece of
furniture that will haunt you forever.
I love road trips and meeting people from other places. If I were
king, traveling abroad would be MANDATORY. I learned more in my
year abroad than I've learned in all the other years combined. I
value and enjoy unbridled conversation.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Fathering, working, hanging with friends and family, being my cat's
servant, outdoors stuff, starting a new career.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making people laugh, public speaking, communication, befriending
furry animals, spelling, math, expressing feelings, cooking, making
watermelon sangria, Scrabble.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm adorable yet grizzled. Or maybe it's my nose, or that I'm
skinny. I don't want to know.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Smiles, sunshine, art, coffee, internet, and hope.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How did this all get here, and where is it all headed?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Home with my daughter, making the most of our limited time
together. Or if I've arranged a sleepover for her, you'll probably
find me enjoying music and/or food & beverages with friends in
