It’s been a while since we’ve had one of these.
The following profile is from OkCupid (www.okcupid.com). What works for you? What doesn’t? What needs improvement? What is perfect the way it is?
At work I’m a “dress-up” type of guy; button down shirts, ties (where else am I going to wear them?). At home/off-the-clock I’m a jeans, t-shirt and occasional hat type of guy.
During the actual work week I am somewhat of a homebody. I’m a big TV/movie person so I enjoy using that medium to decompress and relax. Plus, the variety of characters and stories inspire and intrigue me.
I’m not the type to sleep in (even on weekends). Typically, I’m the most productive early in the morning. And by productive sometimes it means I’ll start a load of laundry and then kick back on the couch while watching TV, other times I’ll go out for a long run and take care of errands (all before lunch).
My typical weekend usually consists of going to Panera, enjoying a coffee and a cobblestone, and either working on my computer (writing) or reading a book.
I’m moving into a new apartment within the next month that allow pets; thus opening the door to fulfilling the dream of being a dog owner again after nearly 12 years.
What I’m doing with my life
The bulk of it revolves around my considerations for a career change and the best way to go about making those “dreams” a reality. If I had to name the “perfect” situation, I would love to have my own coffee shop/bakery (pseudo-diner).
In the meantime, I keep occupied with friends, family and hobbies; photography, writing, running.
I’m really good at
Cooking and baking. My co-workers get the most benefit from this and they are eternally grateful (most of the time). One of them even paid me a $1 for a chocolate bacon home-made brownie once.
The first things people usually notice about me
Too cliche to say eyes and smile?
Most people say I have a very distinct laugh and after talking to me they will usually comment on how welcoming and easy I am to talk to.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music and food
I have been a faithful Dean Koontz reader for years but occasionally throw in a James Patterson or memoir for good measure from time to time.
Horror and comic book flicks are my over-all favorites. If you have the privilege of knowing me during October I usually try to have numerous ‘horror’ nights and screenings.
While I don’t watch an alarming number of shows I can very easily be sucked into a story-line with little effort. Looking back I seem to be a following Nathan Fillion’s career (Buffy, Firefly, Drive, Castle). I don’t watch many comedic sitcoms; and I’ll give any show a fair shake if it involves mystery or a supernatural element.
I’m a foodie. I love food and coming up with my own variations on recipes.
The six things I could never do without
My niece and nephew are going to be considered a single unit, now that I know them I don’t ever want my life to be without them.
The dog I will eventually adopt.
My legs. (because I like running)
My multitude of cameras.
The option between warm or iced coffee.
Music. It simply inspires. Any moment can become amplified with the right song.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Future photography/video/writing projects.
Currently I’m trying to finish editing a short comedy I shot a couple summers back. Then, I’m considering looking for people to collaborate with to begin writing a short movie musical.
The most private thing I’m will to admit
When I go into Toys R Us (shopping for my niece or nephew) I can usually find things I want…and sometimes walk out with.
I’m looking for
*Girls who like guys
*Who are single
*For new friends, short-term dating, activity partners
You should message me if
…you’re simply looking to meet someone new. I’m not particularly looking for anything really serious on the relationship front right now but am always welcome to meeting, talking and experiencing new things with new people. My perspective is relationships, worthwhile relationships, take time to build and grow. They all need to begin somewhere right?
