My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Note: I understand many people won't actually read my profile (not judging...it's just super obvious from the messages I get). Here are the most important things you should know:

* I live in Tokyo, Japan now, but will be moving back to California soon.
* I don't drink-- doesn't mean you can't. I just choose not to.
* Not looking for casual flings, but not looking for marriage either.
* Please don't ask me to be your tour guide. I get a lot of emails like this from transient/temporary expat businessmen. If you really want a tour I will charge you accordingly (there's clearly a demand and it pays way better than teaching)!

Okay...:)

I'm a writer, teacher, model-slash-actor, citizen of the world, and book nerd. I'm into nineteenth-century print culture, books of any kind, performance art, beauty stuff, live music. I'm from San Francisco and moved to Tokyo about two years ago. I'm not in Tokyo permanently so I'm really just looking for new friends/guys to hang out with.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working, writing (also work), auditions, yoga, more yoga, meditating, planning my next trip, hanging out with friends, trying to decide if I should go back for my PhD, staring out the window...
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
conversation, cooking, crocheting, alliteration (apparently). Being a fun date. Not taking small stuff too seriously. Not taking things personally.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
books, my laptop, coffee, my friends, my passport, a good pen with black ink.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
finishing my unfinished book, the origin of the universe, and my place in it

After work tonight, back at my apartment, I happened to notice a little bird chirping outside my window. A sweet little thing, pudgy, with a white crest and shiny, teal-black head. He was hanging on a wire just waiting for me to greet him. I sat down on my sofa and pried opened the window extra wide, hoping he might burst into an ornamented, melodious tune, and then he and his friends would fly into my parlor and they'd tie ribbons in my hair, as it happened so often in the Disney films of my youth.

But instead he just chirped, but it was a pointed chirp, an exhorting chirp... clearly he was trying to tell me something. Just then my phone told me I received an email from OKC. Was it a sign?

So I asked the feathered oracle: "Say little bird, you think I'll meet someone special anytime soon? A really great guy, who will watch movies with me and get my weird shit and tickle me until I scream?"

Immediately he stopped chirping and peered at me sideways, to get a good, long look. He then hopped off the wire and flew right into the side of my building.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
at home reading or watching a movie usually. occasionally out to dinner with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
anything. just ask. :)
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're educated, intelligent, healthy, emotionally sophisticated and available, and have your life together. I tend to prefer scruffy, outdoorsy, masculine types. Not really into slick guys, religious-types, married, taken, poly, or maniacal sports fans. If your profile doesn't have photos or questions answered, I have a hard time wanting to respond to you.

If you'd like to message:

* I get a lot of email requesting companionship for guys "passing through" Tokyo on business. I'm all for hanging out or dinner or whatever but please don't message me if you are looking for a tour guide or suggestions of where to go. Thanks. :)

* It's really strange when men write direct sexual propositions to me as an ice breaker. I understand the impulse to say crazy stuff to a stranger, but it likely won't make for a good start to anything. Nothing personal, just wanted to mention that.
