Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm usually the quiet guy. Tall and reserved. I've been told by
different people that I either don't smile enough or smile a lot. I
love to smile. I love to laugh. I love to make others laugh. I
believe in being irreverent and taking life less seriously than
most people. I guess it's the budding hedonist in me. After all, if
we can't all have a little fun, what's the point? That said, I also
believe in having fun without needing chemicals to do so. I'm quite
alcohol and drug-free. It's much more fun to make fun of the
impaired people than to be the impaired person.
Sometimes I'm silly or foolish, other times I'm grounded and
thoughtful, but there's always a touch of kindness in everything I
do. I grew up on fairytales
, and that has taught me to
be a bit of a romantic. I'm a capable, independent person: I cook,
clean, and even do my own laundry. I can often be found reading,
listening to music, or playing games on or off the computer. I'm
close to my family and friends and like to spend time with them
whenever I can. I'm very much an animal lover and have two handicap
cats of my own, and am looking for a girl who is the same.
I am tall, touching, and touched
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work a regular 9-to-5 which has been steady for 6 years now.
Sometimes it's fun, sometimes it's boring, but I really do like
Outside of work, I spend a lot of time on my own with Netflix,
cats, books, TV during the seasons, and playing games. I like to
get out to the movies a couple times a month, even if it's on my
own. Just gives me something to do or see that's new. I spend time
with my parents or family where and when I can. I absolutely adore
my three nephews. I do like to geek it out at times. It can't be
helped. It's in my blood.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm good at listening. I know it's corny to say, but for some
reason, people like to talk around me and I love to listen to them.
I'm also good at getting people to laugh, even in spite of
themselves. I always hate to see people down and am not afraid to
put my foot in my mouth for a good laugh. I'm not bad as a
conversationalist, either, knowing a little bit of almost
I'm also relatively good at giving massages
, in an untrained, amateur way.
Physical contact has always been a thing I enjoy and people seem to
enjoy it when I give them neck and shoulder rubs or even full
back-massages. I just have that combination of good touch reflexes
that let me react to subtle clues.
I'm also surprisingly logical (when I put my mind to it), good at
puzzles, as well as have an innate knack for picking up odd bits of
lore. I'm amazed at the little bits of useless trivia that I seem
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Lets face it, when you're six foot nine inches tall
, there're some things that people
immediately notice about you first. That tends to be my height.
Aside from that, I can't honestly say what they might notice.
Whether it's my smile, my laughter, or the way I can always seem to
bring a smile to the people around me, I like to keep things
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
As I'm a bibliophile, trying to state my favorite books
would be like
trying to choose between cuddly kittens. I will throw a few names
out there that I tend to read or re-read: Ender's Game
, by Orson Scott Card
The Memory, Sorrow, and
trilogy by Tad Williams
, The Farseer
and its sequel, The Tawny Man Trilogy
by Robin Hobb
, The Black
by Glen Cook
, and The Princess Bride
. I also need to include Neil Gaiman
, Robert Jordan
, George R.R. Martin
, H.P. Lovecraft
many others. Just ask me about other contemporary or past fantasy
Movies are Dramas
hands down, followed as Sci-Fi
, (respectable) Fantasy
, or Action
flicks. Though I do have other
favorites, and the current few include: Eternal
Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
, Star Trek (2009)
, Million Dollar Baby
, Dead Poets Society
, How to Train Your
, The Shawshenk
, One Flew Over
the Cuckoo's Nest
, Gran Torino
Television starts with my usual weekly watch schedule: House
, Lie to Me
, and moves on to others, like
, The X-Files
, Buffy the Vampire
, Big Bang Theory
, Star Trek
As for music, I'm hugely into Celtic
music and Classical
, Pink Floyd
, Led Zeppelin
, Bare Naked Ladies
and many, many others. Just don't give me rap.
Food.. well, I'm definitely carnivorous. I like good cuts of beef,
hams, chicken, turkey, I even enjoy my vegetables. Of course,
everyone needs an indulgence or two, and mine are cinnamon buns (no
raisins please) and Entenmann's Ultimate Crumb Cake
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
. Ask anyone around me and if I didn't have a book, I'd
probably wilt a little.
Next on the list is music
. It helps me unwind, relax and
just lose myself.
Third is definitely my friends
. Yes, I
know they aren't things. But I couldn't do without them. I also
count physical contact and intimacy in this.
Fourth are games
. I love the feel of being able
to compete in a friendly manner and a feel of escapism is always
good to help me unwind and be myself.
Fifth? Now we start to get difficult. I'm a simple man with simple
needs so this would have to be a little solitude
again. I need a chance to become me again.
The last (and least) think I could never do without is my big,
. It took me a long time before I could get myself
a bed I fit in (relatively speaking). I'm not very eager to do
without. And remember, it's not just a recreational toy!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Everything; whatever seems to come to mind. A lot of time I spend
thinking about friends, books, stories, games or girls
. Usually I have two or three
things going on at once. Makes it very easy to lose a train of
thought and makes those times very interesting when I jump tracks
onto something totally unrelated. Interestingly enough, I've
learned a long time ago to separate my working life from the rest
of it. With few exceptions, my work stays there and I don't bring
it up at home. I find that it's an important part of maintaining my
One of my favorite quotes:
Success is the ability to go from one failure to another with no
loss of enthusiasm.
- Winston Churchill
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
On a typical Friday night I have a standing invite to go to my
parents and have a game night. Typically we're playing perquackie
, Big Boggle
, and Bananagrams
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
The most private thing is.... well, you'll have to ask me. I'm the
type of guy who answers just about any question. Just make sure
that you're willing to hear that answer first.
Nah. The truth is I talk a good deal about pessimism but deep down,
I'm a closet optimist.

I'm very much laid back with a strong spontaneous side. I'm not
much for lots of drama, but I'm always out for a few laughs and a
good time. I don't sweat the small things, life's too short.
