Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I’m not one for being self descriptive in a text box. I'm far more
for conveying with action what can be conveyed in words. I go from
being exceptionally geeky to exceptionally socially adjusted, I’m
very outgoing, always willing to strike up a conversation with
anyone, frequently the one to get the room laughing.
Let’s see, interests, wrenching on cars
(I prefer catching, but who
doesn't) going places I’ve never gone before, taking the dog
facts: I'm pretty
, I pick
people up when I’m drunk, I make fondue
better than melting pot
does. I built a car that
gets 60mpg - and then I built a race car from bare metal.
I am Sarcastic, Charismatic, and Enthralling
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I can safely say that I’m gainfully employed at a fantastic job,
have my own car and do not live in my parent’s basement. I'm going
places in life and want someone who's doing the same.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making people laugh, cooking
(not to be confused with
baking), blowing awkward silence away. I'm not afraid to take a
giant leap to get something done that needs to be done (or fixed)
that I know very little about. People tell me i'm good at photography
- i'm not
as confident in that but I certainly enjoy it. Find my flickr and
decide for yourself (hint: it's tongboy.)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
You'll probably ask me "aren't you cold?" and I'll almost always
answer "no, it's a beautiful day out, why would I be cold?" as I
stand in a torrential downpour wearing a tshirt and shorts.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
The movies run the gamut from touching and thought provoking to
Music encompasses just about everything, I’ll shy away from country
usually. If "Please do persist girl, it's time we met and made a
mess." rings a bell, you should message me. "Total Eclipse of The
Heart" is one of my go-to karaoke songs - that should speak to my
range of music preference.
I adore cooking as much as I do finding a new place out and always
enjoy the challenge of a very mismatched ingredients list to turn
into a fantastic meal (be it the bare remnants of a kitchen in need
of a shopping trip or a semi forced opportunity to try new food
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
The obnoxiously cute dog
, friends, diet soda
, my camera, cherry
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The other day I was listening to a rendition of Ayo Technology and
realized that I'm frequently tired of technology. Which is
mundanely ironic as I work in the tech field and i'm typing this
into a box on a computer. It's also not entirely true - I only
when it removes human interaction
from the mix too much - a conversation
with hand gestures and
facial expressions is much more engrossing than one over an IM
window. Most interaction between people is improved by vicinity and
technology frequently impairs that.
(Argue with me over my modern colloquial usage of "technology" in
the above paragraph instead of the Oxford definition - it'll be
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Everyone says they don't have a typical Friday night around here.
Well I wouldn't want to break that mold... The only thing I can say
that is typical is that i'm usually not working too late. Happy
hour and a movie, cooking dinner and board/card games with friends,
trying a new restaurant out, a project around the house, under the
hood of a car, who knows.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I move my income level around on here on occasion - let's call it a
societal requirements test. Yes I make money, no it isn't the most
important thing I do.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I have a bit of a weakness for smart girls

aerodynamics engineer and want to lend a hand with my race car's
