Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi!! Thanks for taking the time to read my profile. A little about
myself...a quick version:
- I'm quiet person, but I can hold my own when engaged in
- I'm patient/reserved/soft spoken.
- A good listener.
- Dog lover.
- I have a thirst for learning and continuing to grow as a
- Currently on a diet...part of a 12 week challenge...Hitting a
little wall the last couple of weeks...stuck on 12 lbs. down. Well,
now it's time to become reacquainted with the gym.
- Love to read.
- I am a very good cook, thanks to my mom and grandmother (it’s the
- Ability to roll with the punches
- A bit of a homebody, but I want to explore
- I still feel like I'm in my 30's...although my body reminds me of
my advanced age!!
- A sarcastic sense of humor, some may even say I'm a bit of a
smarta$$ (See below).
Some random thoughts about profiles I've read and general
-Really? Are there that many women on here that like to go camping?
UGH!! My idea of camping is a cabin with running water, functioning
bathroom and a bed!
-I may be from New England, but I don’t ski. I’ll go, but I’ll be
see you at the cabin, sitting by the fire with a Guinness.
-Why do guys walk around with their pants down under their a$$?
Really? Why is this necessary?
-Politicians must think we are all dumb? I hate
-Why do I look so angry in all of my photos? It's really sad!!! I
don't think I have one good photo of myself. No, I'm not angry. ;)
But if you are good at taking pictures, please, I need help!!
-I've concluded that I really $uck at intro emails as much as I do
at trying to strike up a conversation at a bar...no wonder why I'm
still single...HA! At least I can laugh at myself.
I don't want to put what I am looking for in a box because I
believe that it can prevent me from meeting some great people. That
being said, there are a couple of deal breakers:
- You have to love dogs (dog owners are a bonus).
- Close to your family
- Wants to have children.
Not looking to play games. I'm looking for relationship and
friend...and to finally get off of this site.
I'm usually the one taking pictures, which is one of the reasons
why there are so few pictures of me. The ones that I do have are
crappy, in my opinion, and old (but I haven't really changed much
over the years, except for the grey hair). ;) But, I've put myself
out there and expect the same from you. Please have a photo.
If I sound remotely interesting to you, please drop me a note. I'm
an open book and I am willing to answer any questions that you may
have. What's the worst that could happen? A friendship?
Thanks for taking the time to read this. I look forward to meeting

I have been told that I am intimidating. Not a good thing at all,

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I have a wide range of interests when it comes to music, movies and
books...far too many to list, so I'll just summarize them.
Music: I like everything from classical to heavy metal, with some
exceptions like most country, top 40, dance/tecno, and most rap
(except old school rap).
Movies: I'm an action/comedy guy...but I'll watch anything really.
TV - Thank god for TiVo so that I can watch all of my
Books: Recently I've been reading computer books for
work...boring/dry reads. Although, I will read almost
anything...Classics like Shakespeare to Poe to modern day works
like Harry Potter & Lord of the Rings to Tom Clancy's books to
reading a book called Naked Economics, just to name a few....I
downloaded The Art of War on my iPhone...just curious to see how it
can apply to the real world of business.
As for food....I am a foodie!! I like to try/eat different things.
I am willing to try new things in the kitchen by experimenting with

Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I spend a lot of time thinking about what's next for me: "What will
be my next great job?" "Who will come into my life?"
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I am either home relaxing after a long day, reading or meeting
friends for drinks.
