Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a Texan who moved to the DC area in 2009. I love traveling and
have been around Europe and East Asia. I'm a fan of the outdoors
and my dream job would be a photojournalist for national
geographic. I studied International Affairs in school and moved up
here after graduating.
I am really enjoying the city and finding the hidden and
off-the-wall places and things to do. I am not a lazy guy by any
means, but I also love taking a Saturday to just do nothing but
hang out or read. I love going out to relaxed bars and just talking
and having a few drinks with buddies. Not much on the loud dance
bar scene, but its fun every once in a while.
Oh, and I am a total people watcher. Love to do it and I will sit
in cafes in foreign cities and people watch and try to pick out
other Americans. It was way too easy in China....
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Foreign policy mixed with traveling around and enjoying the fact
that I have more information at my fingertips than most people ever
learned in a lifetime up until 15 yrs ago.
So I used to say I loved being a knight in shining armor but I
recently saw a picture of a battered knight with the quote "a
knight in shining armor is someone who has never really had his
mettle tested". And I love that sentiment. Life will kick you ass,
but it's how you suck it and press on who defines you.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
well I am a huge fan of naps. Not that it is a skill... I am just a
I love flying and wish I could do more of it up here. I am really
proud of my sense of direction and ability to find a way around
traffic. I know its not a huge skill, but major sense of
accomplishment, especially with the DC traffic.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm Tall. I mean, I am a big guy- that is what you get for growing
up in Texas and being a football/rugby player and a firefighter.
Except for flying and having my knees go into the seat in front of
me, it is a damn nice thing... especially because I love women
wearing high heels and I have yet to encounter a woman/heel combo
taller than me...

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are a gal with a relaxed and pleasant personality who is
confident. The reason I am on this site is because I have met way
too many women here who are either so worried about being taken
seriously at their job or who just have a pretentious air about
them that it makes approaching them and striking up a conversation
completely unattractive. Its sad because that attitude ruins any
other beauty they have. But, it also works vice-versa. There is
nothing more attractive to me than talking to a gal who is
genuinely happy and proud of who she is and what she has done with
