Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
*** I'm currently in a relationship with someone I met here on OKC,
but I keep this profile around to help out friends who are trying
out the world of online dating. I'm a huge proponent of it and
never stop talking about what a great time I had dating from
I'm always looking for new friends. :) ***
I like to think I'm a pretty cool guy. I'm positive, friendly, very
open, and pretty laid back. I'm a native San Diegan. I'm looking
for fun dating that could lead to a serious relationship. I feel
that if you're not having fun on a date, you're doing it
I'm looking for someone who is fun, smart, has a strong
personality, has drive, I guess the usual? I need someone who can
keep up with me, both intellectually and personality-wise. I want
someone who is going to be my partner in crime (though we will
probably not actually commit any crimes), someone to have a whole
lot of fun with, someone to share burdens and sorrows with, and who
can make my life better and I can make hers better, by being in
I'm a little out of shape, but always working on it, and I'm
actually fairly active. I practice martial arts twice a week, enjoy
indoor rock climbing (I have a membership to a climbing gym, but
have not gone outside to do it yet), hiking, and other such
activities. I used to run more, but if I do now it's all barefoot.
Well, almost barefoot: I have 4 pairs of Vibram Fivefingers and am
often wearing them everywhere.
I just want to find happiness. I want to find the right person, one
day start a family, and live a good, full life.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I currently work as a financial analyst. Since I've been teaching
martial arts to lower-level students (I'm a first-degree black
belt), I've really discovered a passion for teaching. I'd like to
get into teaching at the community college level, and make a career
out of it. I also one day want to open my own dojo, and teach
Shorinji Kempo to others.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Talking, listening, being awesome, having fun, being a good friend,
connecting with people, cooking, and teaching martial arts.

I talk a lot, and really fast. If I'm with my identical twin, that

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Favorite book: The Sound of Waves by Yukio Mishima. Runner-ups are
anything by Haruki Murakami or Jack Kerouac.
Music: I'm really into Electronic Dance Music right now. At other
times I've been into heavy metal, rap, classic rock. I guess I have
Food: Anything. I will eat anything and love to try out new
Movies: I'll watch anything from foreign films to documentaries to
action flicks. I particularly like comedies. I can be scared by
scary movies, but I can also be really critical of them. I
introduced my 5-year-old sister and 4-year-old brother to Predator
over Christmas. She liked the alien's face reveal at the end (it
was her favorite part) and Arnold; he got scared.
Shows: I don't watch a lot of TV but I like The Daily Show, 30
Rock, Walking Dead, Community, stuff like that. I've been told I'd
like Parks&Rec, Homeland and Girls, but I haven't had the time
to watch them. I will watch and love Hoarders and Duck Dynasty if
they are on, but I don't seek them out. I have enjoyed an episode
or two of Honey Boo-Boo.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A computer, a good book, good friends, a great attitude, love for
myself, and love for other people.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My life, and how I can improve myself and improve my life. A friend
once told me to never stop improving in some way, even if it's in
little steps. I try to live it every day, both in his memory, and
for my own good - because it's excellent advice.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Going out to hang out with friends or hopefully a date for dinner.
Friday night is a great time to get out.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I didn't learn to ride a bike until I was like 28. I still don't
ride very often, despite loving spin class at the gym. Don't laugh
if you want to go ride and I crash into something. Actually, do
laugh, I will definitely be laughing if I crash.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You want to hang out, make a new friend, maybe like to talk about
nerdy shit (or not), or get beer (but don't make me drink IPAs) ,
