Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I realized recently that life really is way too short to waste time
doing something you don't like. So I moved to Denver and am
spending a lot more time enjoying life.
I'm finally comfortable with being a nerd/geek -- it took a while
-- and I'm really hoping to find someone who can channel her inner
nerd. I mean "nerd" loosely -- I'm talking about that thing that
you're *really* enthusiastic about and you think to yourself "I
think I'm more into this than most people."
It doesn't mean you have to like things that are traditionally
"nerdy", (I never got into science fiction, and I think the Big
Bang Theory is just about the least funny show I've ever seen,) I
just want you to show me what it is, about whatever is, that really
rocks your world.
So, I'm ready to meet a partner -- I'm not really sure what
specifically that entails, because if you're not going to have
kids, the framework of marriage/coupledom/what-do-we-do gets a
little vague. You're free to blaze your own trail, but you're on
the hook to figure out a worthwhile path to take. Anyway, I'm eager
to figure that out, and I'd love some company and/or trailblazing
help along the way.
My hobbies? I love cooking, baseball (I won't force you to watch
it, but I'm usually able to talk people into at least giving it a
try.) deserts, mountains, and indie movies. Oh, and any kind of
music which makes you shake your behind before you realize what
you're doing. Speaking of which -- howcome nobody ever sings about
waving your hands in the air as if you really DID care?
By the way, if you have to mention the specific model of Apple
product without which you simply feel you cannot live, I don't
think I'm the guy for you. It's not that I have anything in
particular about Apple, but it's just a machine. If it's a way of
life, or you stand in line for a new one, or you really have to
identify yourself by the model, I feel our perspectives may not
mesh. (How would you feel if someone said "I must have my Nike
Pegasus Air 2 with a compass in the stock and this thing that tells
time"? I mean, really.)
Anyway, these dang "check this box" things are too vague in the
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
For money? I write software. I'm working for a tiny startup (I'm
employee #3) which is pretty exciting. There's no money in it, so
the "blowing your paycheck on Friday night" problem seems to have
Otherwise, trying to live a lot more. Inertia's kept me from
hitting the Denver music scene, but I know it's there. The brewery
scene here is too good for my own good - all those carbs!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Slinging code; cracking jokes; drinking; cracking jokes while
drinking; apologizing tomorrow morning for whatever I said last
night while drinking; cooking; run-on sentences.
I'm a pretty darn good cook -- I really enjoy winging it with
whatever's in the fridge, but I also know how my way around Tuscan
cuisine a bit.
By Eastern standards, I'm a pretty good skier. I'm an OK
photographer, but have been missing a muse for some time.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Oh jeez, I dunno. Ask around. My disdain for BS? My Cliff
Clavin-like trove of random facts?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Oh, there's not enough room. Have you seen The Intouchables? (not
Un, but In) What a great movie. Really, do yourself a favor.
Apocalypse Now is one of my favorite movies, but I have a lot of
things there. I've got a kinda cerebral approach to what I like in
a movie. ("snob" is an accepted alternate spelling of "cerebral") I
love funky music -- I hate dancing, but I love being compelled to
dance. It's like laughing. You never say to someone "may I have
this laugh?", but if something's funky and you have to get down,
that's the good stuff.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I'll skip air/water/food:
1) coffee. nothing fancy, just good, fresh coffee.
3) I could do without a computer, but it'd be difficult and I'd be
5) things to cook
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I spend a lot of time thinking about the best ways to solve the
problems we as a people face. It's wonky, I know, but I'm always
trying to think of a two-birds-with-one-stone solution to
pollution, infrastructure, all those great topics that bring
conversation to a screeching halt a happy hour.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
At my favorite brewery, at happy hour, or on the way out of town to
some silly thing or another.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
well, that's kinda the point of being private, right?
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
if a) you read this far
b) you like what you've seen so far.
I'm sorry - that's a stupid question. You should message me if you
want to. That's kinda the point of being here, isn't it?
