Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm moving to Chicago in May from Baltimore but am originally North
Carolinian. In terms of personality, I'm an introvert masquerading
as an extrovert. I enjoy meeting new people, but I prefer hanging
out in quieter, more intimate settings. Outdoor activities are
always preferable to bars in my book. That said, I do have plenty
of personality and am not afraid to use it.
I'm a morning guy and like to do something athletic most mornings
before the day gets underway. I prefer running and lifting, but
maybe you could teach me how to swim like a pro?
So I'm on OkCupid to make new friends in Chicago and potentially
find more. I don't hurry into things because I know what I'm
looking for and take time to feel it out. If you enjoy staying
active, have your life together, and don't take yourself too
seriously, chances are we'll get along.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Former high school teacher turned scientist in Chicago while
applying to med school
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
In no particular order:
Keeping a budget
Driving (so important here in Baltimore, I can see...)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Where physical features are concerned, I've got a fit build to melt
your heart and blue eyes to melt your momma's.
People notice that, despite my positive personality, I can be quite
the smart ass. Hey, I'm a retired teacher - it comes with the
territory. Cut me some slack.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Movie: The Kids are Alright
Books: East of Eden, Pride and Prejudice (yeah, keep hating...),
and my new favorite series: The Hunger Games. I'm late on the
trend, I know.
Shows: I like Netflix as much as the next guy. I recently finished
The Office and then devoured both seasons of House of Cards. I tend
to be a little high-brow in my tastes but I can't turn you down if
you invite me to watch the Bachelorette with you...
Music: Honestly, flip on the Top 40 radio when I drive. I have soft
spots for classical and bluegrass, though.
Food: Sushi, avocados, salmon, and virtually anything with some
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1.) My larynx - I don't talk excessively, but how else will I tease
2.) My family - they're very important to me
3.) George Foreman grill - George prepares a lot of my
4.) A gym - starts the day right
5.) A tent - though I don't use it as much as I could, it's perfect
for when I need to get away.
6.) Science - I'm making a living with it...
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I actually like taking it easy, hanging out at home and reading.
Maybe I'm watching a movie with you :) Going out happens once in a
while, but I much prefer to meet up with friends and play a board
game over pizza. I'm very competitive, especially with word
games...I'm not antisocial, though. Ideally I'd go out for a good
dinner before finding something happening in the city.
Yes, I do go out, and I'm not going to pout if you ask me to go to
a bar. If I travel alone, I even fly solo in bars. I just don't
like to go out every weekend, though once in a while I like being
in that big cluster of people. Just not in huge doses.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am equal-opportunity when it comes to height. Fellow tall guys
are great, but I'm also a huge fan of short men. So please feel
free to drop me a line no matter how difficult it is for you to
Also, I own a pair of Crocs. I wear them around the locker room.
