Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Having been doing this online dating thing for a bit, I've learned
a few things about myself and about how this "online dating" thing
works. I'm fairly good with words, and pretty charming in person.
And I like talking to people and meeting new people and learning
BUT: the most important thing in this game we play on OK Cupid
isn't what we say here or what we write to each other, it's what
happens when we meet face to face.
Having said that, a few introductory things you should know about
me. I am fairly well educated, I teach for a living, both as a
private tutor and (more recently) as a history teacher. I enjoy
teaching and learning, and still want on a basic level to make it
into a career, but how that's going to work is as yet
I'm a hopeless romantic and want very much to fall in love with the
right person. But I'm also fine if that never happens, and I value
friendships and the people who have earned my trust.
I'm good at golf, been doing Aikido for most of my life (so I guess
I'm good at that too), I'm learning to cook, and I can make any
book you give me seem interesting. If you like intellectual guys
who know how to wine and dine you and show you a good time, shoot
me a message.
If I don't respond, it's either because I'm busy, not interested,
If I do respond, it's because I think it would be interesting to
learn more about you. If we talk for a bit, I'll probably ask if I
can wine and dine you and show you a good time.
That's all for now. Good luck y'all!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Right now, I teach kids. Many of them come from wealthy families
that live in the Santa Barbara area, some of them are from working
class families and lower middle class families, and a few of them
are from families that live in homeless shelters.
I also do Aikido, a non-violent martial art, and play golf. My
handicap just went up to 0.8 recently, so I guess that means I have
to practice more...
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Socializing, golfing, Aikidoing (been doing that since I was 5) and
generally being smart about most things. I'm also good at drinking
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm just a relaxed guy who likes to have conversations. I think I
mellowed out a lot after my graduate school experience, which was
great in a lot of ways but also really bad for me personally. Most
people notice I like to analyze things, perhaps too much? But a lot
of people usually enjoy my unique perspective on issues, and I also
