Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Simply looking forward to meeting new people. Friends? Love
interest? That depends on the chemistry and I have no expectations.
I prefer to simply see what happens and be pleasantly
I've been in Salem for a year and I'm still getting to know where
things are. I like it here but I do miss the Portland area
Before you go any further you should probably know a few things
I'm intelligent, well read, opinionated and capable of poking holes
in flimsy logic. I'm also very open minded and I believe that all
belief structures are valid. That being said I don't need to be
converted. My Christian friends have learned not to have religious
discussions with me because logic just isn't a pretty wreath of
flowers which smell bad.
By the way, if you understood the logic comment then stop now and
write me a message. Really.
I don't drive because I choose not too. If one of your criteria for
a date is that he has a car then go elsewhere. I have better things
to spend money on than a car at the current prices. I have other
things to accomplish before I worry about that.
I'm interested in dating and keeping it light. If something
develops then fantastic. Try starting with messages and then we can
move on to coffee and conversation. The sooner the better actually.
I have no desire to spend a lot of time doing messages.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Listening, empathizing, writing, being a friend. I have my own
opinions though and I'm not shy about expressing them, should the
occasion warrant it.
What I'm best at is being me and that can't be properly described
in this little box.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That's a hard one to pin down. I've never really thought about
I've got dark hair and eyes and that's what people usually comment
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I read anything I can get my hands on. I'm currently going through
Edgar Rice Burroughs. Before that it was David Eddings, Umberto
Eco, Calvin and Hobbes. It's what grabs my attention at the time
and I can read 4-6 things at once and keep track of all of
I'm kind of all over the map on movies too. If the reviewers hated
it then I'll probably go watch it as I like to make up my own mind.
The last movie I saw was The Avengers. Before that The Dark Knight
Rises. My favorite movies are Pan's Labyrinth and The Man From
I'll listen to anything except most of the new country music and
gangster rap. On the country side of it how many times are you
going to sing about your dog or your truck?
I love Thai, Japanese, Greek, Indian, Italian and Mexican food, in
no particular order and I'm probably leaving things out. Coffee and
Chocolate should be separate food groups. I also love to cook.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
The ability to write
Being able to learn. I'm curious about anything and everything
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
It depends on my mood. I'm always thinking and it's extremely hard
to slow down or turn off. My mind is always active. The longer I
know someone the easier it is to slow things down. It's gotten
better as I've gotten older.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Going out with friends, reading, writing, spending time with my
nieces and my cats.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Is nothing at all. If you want to know that then contact me and get
to know me. *chuckles* I will leave you with something I wrote
years ago though.
Ode To Caffeine
The Holy Coffee Urn is my shepherd; I shall not want.
It maketh me the Elixir of Life: It leadeth me from the stumbling
of the sleep-deprived.
It restoreth my cognitive functions: It leadeth me in the paths of
the Caffeinated for It's name's sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of the stupid,
I will fear no contamination: for It art with me: It's stimulation
and It's effects they imbue me.
It preparest a mug before me in the presence of the uninitiated: It
anointest my facilities with Ambrosia: My coffee mug runneth
Surely Kenya and Colombian will follow me all the days of my life:
and I will dwell in the house of the Caffeine Enhanced

You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you're intelligent and like to read.
You would like to get to know someone who actually has a brain, can
cook and is truly interested in what you have to say.
If you know who you are and have at least a basic idea of what you
want.....we should probably talk. *chuckles*
If you don't write in chat speak we'll get along.
Most of all if you smiled even once while reading this profile then
why are you not typing a message already?
