About Me
To avoid the awkward moments later, I’m just going to come out with it – I knit.

I know, I know, it’s a little odd, but a snowboarding friend of mine always had the coolest hats and after he refused to make me a hat of my own, I decided to learn to make my own. Thanks to a few friends at a “Stitch and Bitch” club, I’m now an avid knitter.

That’s all I have for confessions, at least for now. The real juicy ones might come out later.

In addition to knitting and snowboarding, I also like foreign films, cookie dough, and picking out paint colors. I bought an old fixer-upper last year and ever since I’ve been painting, tiling, landscaping, and everything else that goes along with remodeling a home. Needless to say, I’ve really enjoyed the process.

When I’m not working or hanging out around the house, I’m traveling. I wish I could travel more, but I guess we all have responsibilities. The person I date needs to enjoy travel too. If you aren’t up for an adventure, then you’re not up for me.

Some of my favorite trips have been to Barcelona, Aruba, and Koh Phi Phi in Thailand. Have you been?

I think the common denominator in all of these places is the water. There is something so romantic and soothing about sparkling lights over the sea. There’s nothing I enjoy more than a glass of red wine, good conversation, and the sound of waves on the beach.

In fact, I think that might be my ideal date. What about you? What do you want in a date?

Profile critique

One great thing – Jeff’s interests are really unique. It’s not just the usual “work out, movies, and cooking” routine. Great job making your profile stand out.

One not-so-great-thing – It seems that almost everyone mentions travel in their profile. Have you really met anyone that doesn’t like to travel or at least wouldn’t travel if they could? I vote you keep the ultimatums (If you’re not up for travel you’re not up for me) and the travel references out of your profile, unless you can make it very creative.

Travel is a better first date conversation anyway.
