Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm moving to the Fargo area in January (yep, I've heard all the
jokes as to why that's a bad idea) to attend grad school at NDSU.
It's far from home but I'm really looking forward to it; it's great
opportunity. I'm also excited by the potential of meeting someone
special. Maybe that's you. But on to why you're here...
I find it hard to summarize myself. Here's why:
I have a wide variety of interests, skills, and abilities. I'm
quite a geek. Science, technology, math, sci-fi, and thinking and
talking about philosophy and complex
moral/ethical/political/theological issues are all fun for
At the same time I must admit that I'm also a bit of a jock - or at
least have some jock tendencies. I played football and basketball
in high school and watch games frequently. I even coached high
school football back home. Plus, I work hard to stay in shape by
eating healthy (not always succesful) and working out
You'll find that I'm very reliable, honest, and trustworthy. I have
a great work ethic and am at my best when there is a task to
complete or a goal to reach. For example, about 2.5 years ago I
weighed close to 260lbs. You can check out my photos for the
evidence of where that was going...
Finally, I have an odd sense of humor. And this becomes clear quite
soon after I meet anyone. I love puns, silly jokes, and snappy one
liners. For the most part, I use them appropriately for the company
I'm with. Feel free to help me with this one, though.
So again, I consider a self summary difficult because I have the
tendencies of a geek, a jock, a philosopher, and a (admittedly
terrible) comedian. So I'm either all of those things, or none of
them. I really can't say. Either way, I like who I am and what I
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I teach. I'm going to grad school to help further that endeavor.
Back home I taught high school physics and math for 4 years.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Teaching, problem solving, being an uncle (or so I'm told), and
making awful jokes.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have a birth mark on my right eye. Some people notice it straight
away, others don't. It drives doctors crazy, but I tell them I keep
an eye on it.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I love to read, watch tv/movies, listen to music, and eat. Wide
ranging tastes on all.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Having a purpose
Knowing how to count
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Very heady things AND very stupid/silly things. I'm weird like
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Depends. Hanging with a small group of close friends or enjoying
the peace of a night in to satiate my introversion (not shyness or
anti-social tendencies, just introversion).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have no idea what it means to wear some "ironically"
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I'm allergic to cats. So message me if you are more interested in
me than cats and you also have no idea what it means to wear
