Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Let's be honest here, I'm as much a mixed bag of good traits and
bad as anyone else. I'm pretty reserved when I meet new people, but
once I warm up I'm a little bit of a smart ass. Either one of those
could be positive or negative. I'm fairly easy-going and
undemanding, and I feel guilty that I think less of people who use
I love to travel, but hate resorts and cruises. A cheap hotel and a
map are all that I think are necessary for a good vacation. Maybe a
phrasebook, too. Also, someone who can read a map, because I am
incompetent at anything relating to navigation.
I'm not sure a relationship could work if we don't agree that It's
Always Sunny in Philadelphia is hilarious and Two and a half Men is
Ultimately, I think I'm generally well-rounded, have a good sense
of humor, and easy to get along with, so if you are too, send me a
message and let's take it from there.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I teach American Government and English. I write for fun, I love
cooking and especially baking. And I'm trying to find a balance
between saving money for world travels and paying off student
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Cooking, reading, playing Boggle, and using a pogo stick and a
skip-it (though not simultaneously. Yet.)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My dimples. I tend to be pretty smiley and they are kind of hard to
miss. The ones on my face, anyway.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: in terms of favorites, there are too many to mention, but I
last read a collection of essays and letters by Mark Twain. I will
read anything Neil Gaiman ever chooses to publish. I'm currently
reading The Battle for God, about the rise of fundamentalist
Christianity, Judaism, and Islam.
Movies: Not really a movie person, but I am willing to drop what I
am doing and watch Labyrinth at pretty much any point in time. I
tend to gravitate more towards comedies and period pieces.
Music: Damien Rice, Ray LaMontagne, Glen Hansard, The Swell Season,
Cat Stevens, Paolo Nutini, Van Morrison, and Rachael
TV: Always Sunny, Hello Ladies, Community, My Grandmother's Ravioli
(a cooking show where Mo Rocca goes out and cooks with other
people's grandmothers and listens to their stories. Love it.)
Food: generally a favorite
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Chapstick... with SPF!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Spending time with family and friends or raining bloody ink onto
10th graders' essays (better known as grading papers... with a red
pen, not blood.).

You don't manscape. If I was looking for a guy as hairless as a
prepubescent boy, I'd be in prison.
