Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
II'm 98.9% fantastic.
My co-worker told me I am president of the Nerd Club. He made me
business cards, so it must be true. My nerd qualities, according to
him? Well, I watch comic book movies. I play the occasional video
game. I read. I ride a bicycle, drive stick, and ride a motorcycle.
I hike, ski, and rock climb. I breathe.
Yes, pretty much anything I do qualifies me as a nerd.
I believe that the key to a person's happiness lies within. If you
want to be happy, you need to do things that make you happy, and
let go of those things that don't. So many of us hold onto to so
much negativity. I smile at children, make small talk with
strangers, and treat others the way I would hope they would treat
me. Always offer a helping hand, and always willing to try
Life should be building up a collection of experiences, be they
amazing conversations, good meals, or adventures. My next big
adventure is going to be skiing in Japan this winter.
When I'm being more typical, I spent a decent amount of time at the
local rock climbing gym, or the local mountain bike trails, enjoy
experimenting in the kitchen (much to the delight of those who are
my guinea pigs), enjoy reading, fantasy and science fiction take
precedence, and board gaming when it gets chillier out.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
So many people talk about wanting to get out of the typical 9-5
schedule. I spent years trying to get one. Why? I love weekends. I
love having days off to rest, and evenings off to pursue my own
interests. That whole atypical schedule thing may be for some, but
I like being able to plan ahead without wondering if work will
throw a curveball my way.
Pretty sure it helps that I have short fridays, a lot of holidays,
and a job I love.
I like experiencing life through adventure.
Next Big Adventure: Sugarbush - Slide Brook Basin
Last Adventure: Japan.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I am a good cook, though after work, sometimes nothing is more
satisfying than peanut butter and jelly.
When I say I am a good photographer, I actually mean it. It's not
just my mom who says my photos are good.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I met a bunch of new people recently on an overnight whitewater
rafting trip. Apparently, the quick thing, not necessarily the
first thing, that was noticed about me was that I was ridiculously
easy to get along with. This was backed up by the fact that I was
"adopted" into another group, based solely on the bus ride
I would like to think that my eyes or my smile are frequently
noticed first during a conversation.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Lasagna. Moquecca. Pao de Quiejo. Good Pizza. Tres Leches. Oxtail
Sons of Anarchy. Legend of Korra. Arrow. Modern Family.
The new Ninja Turtles was better than I expected. I'll always watch
Princess Bride or Shawshank Redemption. I like big special effects
I'm currently reading The Silkworm.
Most of those things are far too superficial to make any sort of
difference in a connection. If you do not like the same movies or
books as me, that is not a deal breaker. It's enough to me that you
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Fun. I always need something fun in life. All work and no play is
not a way I want to live.
My eyes. I enjoy photography, and while sure, I could live being
blind, it would totally ruin one of my favorite hobbies.
Good kitchen knives. I enjoy the making of food as much as the
consuming of food.
A camera. That whole photography thing again. Plus, no souvenir
better than a photo that only you have.
A bicycle. I might not be married to my bicycle like many of the
people on this site, but I thoroughly enjoy riding. It's not my
commute. It's stress relief. It's fitness. It's the occasional ride
to the store, or it's cross country over dirt trails and single
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How much better life is in my thirties than it was in my twenties.
Those of you almost here, trust me, it's fantastic.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Seriously don't remember what fridays outside of the ski season
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have passions. Those things I am passionate about, I delve into
fully. Example: I got addicted to skiing last season. And now I
have skied 30+ days this season. If something is worth doing, it's
worth doing fully I say.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are an athletic nerd. A sporty geek.
You like camping, hiking, mountain biking, and/or other outdoor
activities, but you can and still do appreciate relaxing at home
playing board games and hosting small dinner parties.
You ski or snowboard. It was suggested to me that this is probably
really important, as I plan to go often.
You actually want to meet. Isn't that the point?
