My self-summary
Hi, I’m John! I am an IT professional living in downtown Chicago, and I'm looking forward to meeting you. While I can be reserved initially, once you get to know me you'll see that I am a sweet, kind, genuine guy with a great sense of humor who is a lot of fun. My main interests include sports, trivia and board games. While I don't drink, you can often find me at a bar playing trivia with friends or watching a game. Otherwise I'm probably playing board games at a friend's house or with a Meetup group, or relaxing at home.
I love living in Chicago. I've been here 10 years, and I still have a lot left to explore. The city has so much to offer, and it would be great to have someone to share these things with. I am fortunate to live next to the lake, and love taking walks through the park and along the lakefront. I absolutely love dogs, and am always smiling at the ones I see! I plan on getting one someday, so it's very important that you like them too.
​Family is also very important to me. I am a proud uncle to three young nephews, and seeing them on Skype is the best, and a sure pick-me-up, regardless of whatever else is going on in life. I always enjoy talking with my sister and parents in California. We are extremely close and have lots of fun together. I have been fortunate to be able to travel to some amazing places and have memorable experiences with them.
I hope to meet a kind and honest person who is looking for someone to share her life with. Ideally, you share my love of the city and at the same time really enjoy spending time with your friends and family. Like me, you are a good listener with a generally positive outlook. If it sounds like I’m looking for you, I hope you'll send me a message!
