Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Thanks for checking out my profile. My name is David. I previously
taught English in Japan for 19 months to junior high school
students as a challenge and experience after graduating from UC
Berkeley in Spring 2008, but I moved back here to sunny California
in March 2010. Living and working in Japan really opened up my mind
and broadened my world, and have come to integrate the language and
culture into my own. This experience also helped me find my current
job in working as a chemical engineer and helping Japanese staff
with language support. It's a lot of fun, and I really enjoy my
job!! In my free time, I enjoy swimming, weight lifting,
snowboarding, watching movies, playing video games, bowling etc,
but I'm always up to try new things and I welcome your
I'm looking for a girl who is smart, nice, cute, sweet, happy,
hates drama, loves the outdoors and trying new things, and most
importantly, loves spending time with me! I'm a pretty happy,
gentle, and fun loving guy, so I get along best with girls who have
personalities similar to mine.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I just moved up to Elk Grove last November, and so far I am liking
it. It sure beats the previous commute I was doing from Stockton to
Sac, so I'm glad that's over. Outside of that, I'm trying to stay
fit by weight training and swimming on alternate days, as well as
try to spend time with family and friends. I also am studying to
take exams to improve my Japanese language skills as I want to be
fluent in it, as well as in a few years time obtain my professional
engineering license in my field.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
listening respectfully to what others have to say, having healthy
relationships with my family and friends, staying positive,
creating a fun atmosphere, keeping my promises, being diligent in
reaching my goals.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I can be a little quiet at first, but I become more talkative as I
get to know you and feel comfortable with you, which doesn't take
long. But I wouldn't call myself introverted! If you were to ask
any of my good friends, they would say that I'm really easy to talk
to about anything (even personal things that are difficult to
approach) and have a really good sense of humor. I can handle just
about any kind of humor, whether it be clean or dirty. Oh yeah!!
And I have been wearing puka-shell necklaces since I was 16 and the
style just kind of grew on me. So it would be a rare occasion for
you to ever see me without it on! ;)

I enjoying listening to classic rock, punk rock, SUPER EUROBEAT,

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
6. My Japanese-English electronic dictionary
5. My puka-shell necklace
3. Smiling/being happy
2. A place to call home
1. Love and support from my family and friends
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
how to be successful at my job, how to save money I may need for
the future, how to improve my quality of life, what's going on in
the lives of my loved ones including how my friends in Japan are
doing, instead of thinking outside the box how about thinking about
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I don't expect anybody on here to be serious, as after all this
dating website is free, but if anything you have read above sounds
like something that you're looking for in a guy, or are just
curious to know more about me or make a friend, shoot me message!
But please find something more to say than just "Hi", as it gives
me absolutely nothing to work with, and is typically something only
a lazy person says who only gives it their almost.
