Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Intelligent, relaxed, easy going guy with a sense of fun. The
people I connect with are usually smart, passionate about whatever
interests them, caring and have a good sense of humor.
Friends and family matter more to me than anything else.
I love to travel. Besides travelling all over Europe, I have been
skiing in the Caucasus, rode through the English Moors in the back
of a pickup truck, been behind the Iron Curtain and hitchhiked in
the West Bank.
I love outdoor sports especially biking, running and cross country
skiing, but I'll try just about anything. Indoors, I am an avid
reader, love movies and listening to and making music.
It is not that important that you share my interests. I am looking
for a woman who is passionate about what she likes and is open to
new experiences. I love it when my partner introduces me to new
things and I open up new worlds for her.
In my opinion a good relationship requires shared values.
Curiosity, honesty and warmth rank high on my list. I also value
flexibility. I am not high maintenance and I appreciate people who
are not either.

I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Well, I'll tell you what people say they notice about me. I think
most people notice that I'm tall. Next I think they consider me to
be intelligent and to have a kind disposition. More discerning
people will notice my sense of humor.

Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Friday nights vary. I just like doing something mellow with
friends. My office has parties most Fridays afternoons, so I've
usually had a beer and some food by the time I leave. By the time I
get home I kind of had a fun evening already, but I don't want to
be alone. Meeting a friend for a movie or a cup of coffee is just

going to a movie with friends. But really, I'm up for just about
anything anyone suggests.
