Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
About Me: I did some research on what other guys
write in their profiles (you know, a competitive analysis). Other
than realizing that OkCupid was going to notify all these guys that
I was checking them out, I learned that 95% of them just listed a
bunch of flattering adjectives about themselves (does this actually
work?). So let me give you the bad stuff instead. I'm deathly
afraid of snakes for no good reason. I'm not always politically
correct. Although I'm pretty detail-oriented I can also be a bit
impulsive (sorry paycheck). I like to stay up late; I'm honestly
most productive between 11pm and 3am on weeknights (not that I can
really do this anymore). I don't have much patience for people that
can't keep a commitment or are super flaky. And I’m pretty much OCD
about keeping my apartment clean (so a relationship with me comes
with a free subscription to maid service).
About You: You are curious about the world around
you. You're open-minded and tolerant (even of people and things
that go against your beliefs). You like to travel. Health and
wellness are important parts of your life (it's not always easy,
but it's a priority in my life). You have high professional and
personal ambitions. You don't shy away from intelligent
conversations. You have a good sense of humor and can appreciate
(or at least tolerate) some sarcasm. Everything else is negotiable.
Is this really too much to ask? (probably).
And my dating profile wouldn't be complete without a generic list
of hobbies: scuba diving, web design, trying new IPA beers (yes,
this is a hobby), cooking at home, binge watching Shark Tank, and
running (lots of running).
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I travel whenever I can. Even if it's just a weekend getaway. I
especially like international travel and have been lucky enough to
travel all over the world. I recently got back from backpacking in
SE Asia for 5 weeks.
I enjoy playing pickup games of just about any sport. I run often
to keep in shape and do 2 or 3 half marathons a year plus a handful
of shorter charity runs.
I'm an ignroant foodie... which basically means I know nothing
about food but love going out to eat and cooking new things at home
all the time.
I'm constantly reading. Newspapers, magazines, research articles,
blogs, and pretty much any other non-fiction I can get my hands on.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
scuba diving, event planning, business, web design, cooking,
cycling, running, and coaching/teaching/mentoring.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1- my friends + my dog
2- my passport
3- my car (I love exploring and going places)
4- my ambition
5- being spontaneous
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Personally: I spend a lot of time thinking about travel plans and
where I am going to travel to next.
Professionally: I spend a lot of time thinking about what the next
career move is going to be or what business opportunity I should
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
2) Having a few drinks with friends
3) At home relaxing
