Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
[In an effort to be more clear, I am in an open relationship. It's
not necessarily the most visible over there in the Details box, and
it feels like SLIGHTLY pertinent information.]
I make an effort to be a well-rounded person. I would describe
myself as a hybrid nerd/jock. I make puns frequently, and I
apologize for none of them. I stay active, am currently in a
massage therapy program, am a judge for and participated in a
I didn't really believe in the Meyers-Briggs test (and I am still
skeptical), but ESFP feels pretty accurate so I'm going to include
What I do isn't as important to me as who I do it with. I think I'm
a pretty mellow guy, I can get along with most people I think. So
hit me up if you'd like to chat or meet up sometime!
Oh, and I think I'm smoother than I probably am. Whenever I talk to
someone, I always have these cheesy lines in my head. I almost
never use them (and when I do it's usually in jest) so as not to be
"that guy". Very self conscious to not be the person I loathed in
high school. But if you want me to turn on the charm ("charm") then
tell me to go for it :P
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Massage therapy program. Touch people, make them feel better.
Basically my life already, except soon I'll get paid for it. I
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Back rubs, for real. I'm sometimes asked if I'm a professional
masseur...I'm not....yet. Cooking my signature dishes (fried rice,
spaghetti, broccoli+cheese+rice casserole, taco salad...and I make
good sandwiches and hamburgers too).
But my main specialty is embarrassing myself.

Food: I have three food dislikes. Two are straight forward. I
dislike mushrooms and gelatin based products (jello, gummy worms,
gummy bears, etc). The last is weird. I like spaghetti, angel hair
and vermicelli. Most other pastas I can't eat. It's a texture thing
or something. No lasagna, macaroni, penne, udon, etc.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I'll list some things besides i) food air water shelter and ii)
friends family because everyone loves and needs those, but they
don't provide much insight.
3) sex/porn+masturbation (if you don't like this and say it's three
things, then call it "getting off")
4) staying active...either through the gym or sports or just
jogging around with my sister
5) taking self portraits and then posting them online so people
tell me I'm handsome.
6) Monday Night games night. Beating up on my friends at board
games or killing their characters as Dungeon Master.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The definition of masculine/masculinity.
If someone asks me whether I'm masculine or feminine, I have some
choices. I can say that I'm masculine, which is true enough. The
meaning of masculinity has been distorted a bit, I feel. When
someone says they're masculine or "straight acting" (lol...), I get
the feeling that what they're trying to say is that they're
"macho". Masculine for me doesn't equal macho.
I'm just myself. I'm a guy, I don't feel like my personality is
very flamboyant. There's nothing wrong with feminine guys though,
and I would definitely smooch a handsome one. To say I'm straight
acting is stupid. I'm very much a gay guy. I act like a gay
guy...because however I carry myself, I'm still gay.
I feel like I'm talking in circles now...clearly eloquence isn't my
Some thoughts about monogamy:
- A majority of people need/want it.
- Some people don't.
I don't personally need my partner to be "faithful" in the
traditional sense. What I need is my partner to practice safe sex,
and (should we agree on it) to talk about having sex outside our
relationship beforehand. I get some pangs of jealousy, but I can
deal with jealousy. What I want out of a relationship is someone I
can love, and trust, and be free with. Sleep next to. Wake up next
to. I want to spend my time with someone because that's who I want
most to be with. If I want to spend an evening away from my
partner, or if my partner wants to spend an evening away from me, I
don't feel like that depreciates how we feel about one another. I
want my love and relationship to be unrestricted.
I don't expect most people to agree with that, though.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

Let's play a game of "Two Truths and a Lie"

The first things I do when I visit a profile are
1) Look at your pictures
2) Read your Self-Summary
3) Look at your OKCupid stats
4) Check your answers to see if you've answered what sexual
position you prefer in bed.
Based on those 4 steps, I generally decide whether I care enough to
read the rest of your profile.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I enjoy receiving messages. So long as you're not overtly creepy I
am likely to take the time to respond. I use the "like" system, but
rarely send the first message. If I like you, just say hi and we'll
go from there.
Who are you looking for?
This helps us know who to show you on OkCupid.
