Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Who am I? Well, I'm not sure. I am a tremendously extroverted
introvert, a fearless coward, and an intensely serious joker. I'm
also a self-effacing narcissist who doesn't like to talk about
himself, yet has spent way too much time working on this free
online dating profile. Oh, and I like long walks on the beach and
my favorite color is blue. I also use smiley faces way too much
when I type. :-)
What am I looking for? Again, I'm not sure. A look back on my past
dating history shows some pretty wild inconsistencies. I do have a
weakness for tall girls though, but short girls can be great too
(just not so short that I have to look where I'm stepping). BTW,
I'm 6ft, is that tall or average? Looking at the other people's
profiles, it seems that "must be tall" is a pretty common phrase. I
really like dogs too. I want to get one but I don't think I have
the time to take care of one by myself. So bonus points to you if
you got one, because I will want to pet it!
I haven't really decided how serious I'm looking to get, I think my
short term goal is to try this thing out and see how it goes. I'm a
recent orphan of wedding bells, that is, all my freaking friends
have gotten married recently, or even worse, have started having
kids. Great for them, but sucks for me, nobody wants to go out and
do anything! So even starting out as a friends thing works for me,
I'm open to meeting new people. That is of course, unless you're
into me, then maybe you could give me a hint and I'll try to be
more flirty ;-)
Oh and music? I pretty much like everything except hip hop (sorry!)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I really can't complain. I have a great job that engages me
everyday and I never dread going to work. I have my health and a
great family and I'm at a point in my career where I have the time
and the money to get out and finally do some interesting things.
Socially I'm not where I want to be (see above for details) so I'm
trying out this online thing to see if I can expand my friend /
dating circle to outside of the randoms at the bar / people my
married friends are trying to hook me up with. I would really like
to travel this coming year so it would be awesome to meet somebody
on here that could run away with me to the coast or something and
have it not be weird. Maybe that's a stretch goal, but it would
still be nice.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
One on one conversations. My favorite meetup is to just go grab a
drink and see if we connect. I'm always interested in what makes
other people tick. Even people with opinions I don't agree with are
interesting to me, because I want to know why someone feels so
strongly one way or the other. You'll probably find that I ask a
lot of questions and deftly steer the conversation away from myself
(I think I'm boring) but I like to make lots of jokes to keep it
from seeming like a job interview. Ha ha, or maybe like less of a
job and more like an unpaid internship.
