Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
After taking a bit of a hiatus from dating, I decided to update my
I'm 36. Single. I live in Austin.
Blah, blah, blah
This is where I'm probably supposed to tell you about all the cool
places I've been.
And how much I love living in Austin.
And how "music is my LIFE!"
And where I went to college.
And my awesome dog.
I'm not doing that.
I don't care- and you probably don't, either.
This is me:
I'm not one of those mysterious, emotionally distant badboy
I'm not very hip, and I'm not very good at "playing it cool".
I wear my heart on my sleeve.
I have chosen not to hide my compassion, my empathy, or my love for
I'm tired of people expecting me to be careful and guarded.
It's so much easier for me to just tell someone how I feel, or what
Things that make perfect sense to me:
If I like you, you'll know it. I'll say so.
If you text me, I'll answer.
If you send an obvious signal, I'll pick up on it.
If you're nice to me, I'll appreciate you.
Out loud, even.
(It's not that hard, fellas)
I prefer to be upfront and straightforward, rather than play
Why would I defy the bro-code, and be open with my (gasp)
Because I'm just not scared.
If so- thanks for stopping by.
You know the way out.
I'm looking for serious, long-term, mushy, romantic, love stuff-
and to make friends with interesting women along the way.
A little deeper:
My career as a nurse fits me like the rubber gloves that I always
seem to have in my pockets.
That's right ladies, I'm a male nurse.
Sensitive enough to understand your feelings.
Tender enough to nurture your heart.
Human enough to accept all your crazy.
Strong enough to carry your baggage.
And I know more about your body than most guys.
Also, it's nearly impossible to gross me out.
I have an admittedly unfair advantage here, as 95% of my colleagues
I know where all the other guys are going wrong.
All joking aside, my mom says I'm a pretty good guy.
Don't be a jerk?
That is all.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I have my S together.
Currently, I'm working as a nurse, floating between clinics all
My near-future plans are to finish my degree, and further my career
(turns out, it can go really far).
Call me old-fashioned, but I'm also looking for real-life, actual
grownup love and partnership.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Empathy and giving a crap, in general.
Problem solving, tinkering, and fixing.
Listening and communicating.
Saying the exact right thing (usually at the right time).
Functioning without enough sleep.
Growing a beard.
Wise-assing, back-sassing, and sarcasm-ing.
Things I'm not really good at:
Dancing, public speaking, looking cool, eating my vegetables,
picking up women at bars (apparently), yoga, cooking (I promise
I'll do the dishes), horse whispering, taking flattering pictures

I don't want to bother much with this part.
I have read/seen/heard all kinds of cool stuff, and my tastes are
varied- as are yours.
If we like all the same stuff, that leaves far less to explore- and
I think it would be fun to discuss this in person.
As far as food goes-
I do not eat seafood. Never ever.
Anything else is fine by me, though it may be difficult for me if
you are vegetarian or vegan.
I prefer not to break your heart with every bite I take, because I
prefer every bite to have at least a little bit of bacon in it.
