Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I should probably start out by saying that I'm slightly disturbed
by the sheer number of women on this site that feel the need to
explicitly state in their profile that they're not interested in
hookups. I know that online dating can draw out the lowest common
denominator in guys/trolls, but I would like to think that they
were the exception and not the rule. Naive perhaps.
A little about me. I'm a software engineer by trade. I love it
because it's one of the few professions where you can create
something out of nothing...magic. I use the term engineer loosely
however since most people in my profession have the conjuring power
of a drunk wizard. My other creative outlet is music. I've been
teaching myself music composition on the side. Luckily an
inebriated wizard can make cool stuff in this department.
I'm cut from a different cloth than most guys. I don't drink beer
or watch sports. I actually pay attention to what I wear, and I
have a unique taste in music. I like going up to Canada every now
and then to soak up culture. It's great going places where work
can't reach me (they don't pay for my phone, ergo i'm not taking
their calls). I'm usually pretty mild mannered for the most part,
but enjoy sky diving. I'm also a pro at cooking pot roast and pop
tarts, yet lack the ability to cook anything else.
What am I looking for? Someone who will make me want to pause the
PlayStation to return text messages to. I like witty people that
are fun to be around. I especially like people that are good at mad
libs. I'm not big on drama. I have enough of that already and
whenever I feel there isn't enough I prefer to feed that with
Netflix. I want to say smart too, but that seems cliche. Plus if
you're good at mad libbing odds are you're already smart.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a software architect. I play with Legos that cost millions of
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Sarcasm. I have a penchant knack for making sly jokes and painting
with broad brushes.
I'm obviously good at computers since that's what I do for a
living, but no, I don't possess the ability to magically fix
laptops that "don't work".
I'm also something of a mixed bag when it comes to cooking. My
artistic capabilities rarely extend much past programming. However,
I have an uncanny ability to make stunning pot roasts.

Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My phone and by extension my music, camera, and Internet
AC in the summer
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Why does everyone single out country music and/or rap when they say
they enjoy "all kinds of music" while giving yodeling a free pass?
Really? I've yet to meet a single person with The Lonely Goatherd
on their iPod. Oh and quit hating on country music, Charlie Daniels
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Usually out having dinner and drinks with friends.

I find it disturbing the number of women on this site that need to
say in their profile that they aren't interested in a hookup. It
makes me question the quality of the guys on this site.
Oh and no I'm not looking for a hookup. My apologies to all of the
promiscuous ladies that look at my profile and say to themselves
"man meat". However take heart, I hear a lot of guys on this site
are into that.
I’m looking for
- Girls who like guys
- Ages 24–40
- Near me
- Who are single
- For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
