Ok well here I sit staring at my laptop trying to come up with clever prose about myself and who I’m looking for. Proving harder than I thought. What’s this I see about writer’s block and getting someone else to write this . . . nah that would be cheating. Alright here’s my attempt.
I just got done with a glorious walk in the sun, saw beautiful flowers in bloom, and stopped to pet the occasional happy pooch I met bounding ahead of its equally joyful owner. I feel so lucky to have what I have and be able to do what I do. I cherish my family and friends, love my dogs, I am grateful for my career thus far and I am excitedly looking for my next challenge and growth opportunity. I'm researching starting my own company and/or nonprofit; I'm passionate about children, animals and the environment. I take pleasure in the simple things in life and have learned not to sweat the small stuff.
My friends would describe me as funny, caring, honest, easy-going, compassionate, focused, disciplined and hard-working. I admit I'm a bit clumsy and not a very good driver (I can't parallel park to save my life), I once set frozen lasagna on fire so not the greatest of cooks (but like to watch the cooking channel oddly enough), and I will scream at the site of those eight-legged monsters that have an uncanny ability to hide in my room.
I love to dance and do it like no one is watching. I think Sheryl Sandberg is a supermodel. I believe in charity, paying it forward and random acts of kindness. I enjoy traveling and have had some great trips around the country and to Europe and India. I'd love to visit Hong Kong, Australia, Brazil, Iceland, Africa, etc. one day, as well as more places here in the U.S. I do like to come home though after a couple of weeks because I miss my dogs to be honest.
I wish I was athletic (the trauma of being picked last in PE haunts me to this day) but I like watching sports, particularly football which is my favorite. I'll refrain from expounding on my favorite team and players here. Be warned though that I will give you a curiously blank stare when you explain for the umpteenth time what pass interference is, and I pay attention to color combinations for the different teams.
I'm up for trying new things, exploring new places, trying new foods and restaurants. I equally love going on vacation to a tropical island as I do going to a bustling city with lots to do and places to explore. I maintain an active lifestyle that includes running, gym time, hiking, etc. and I eat pretty healthy.
I admit I’m a goofball geek who loves watching action movies, comedies like Bridesmaids and Tommy Boy, will randomly recite lines from Monty Python’s Holy Grail, the Science Channel, National Geographic, History Channel, Too Cute on Animal Planet (aaaawwww they are so cuuuute!). I’ll secretly watch certain reality TV shows, won’t fess up to which ones though. I love watching certain stand up comedians; I count Daniel Tosh, Chris Rock, Kathy Griffin and Mitch Hedberg among my favorites.
Wow I guess I can write a lot more about myself than I thought.
Who am I looking for? I want a stand-up guy who’s honest, patient, caring, funny, charitable, romances, is a gentlemen, who is my best friend, and believes in a true partnership based on mutual respect and support. It's not so much about the grand gesture but those little things he does to show me he cares. I want to share the common interests but also have us introduce each other to new things and grow and have fun together. Someone once said the secret to their happy relationship was the simple truth that they each wanted the other person to be happy, and that resonated with me.
Thanks for taking the time to read my profile, and I hope this doesn't sound too weird but good luck in your Match endeavor!
