My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I have an easy time relating to people. I am strongly motivated to continually grow and push my limits, but I also enjoy life’s pleasures and comforts and try and find a balance between the two. I have a good sense of humor and am not easily offended. I like to be silly and have fun. I don’t feel I am either an introvert or extrovert, I both want and need time alone and with people to be the most centered and happy. For social activities, I like going to shows/concerts, going dancing, going hiking, mushroom hunting, swimming in nature, movies, going out for coffee or food, and I like to talk about life and what it’s like living it.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I’m in graduate school for clinical mental health counseling and I work at a residential home for adults with intellectual developmental disabilities. I like to help people cope and deal with the emotional challenges of living. I’m going to be a licensed professional counselor when I graduate and will work to build a private practice.

I’m trying to settle into Portland as I am new to the area. I am getting out and trying to make new friends, and I am interested in dating and starting a longer-term relationship if I meet the right person. I have been happily single for a long time, but now I am curious to explore a romantic connection with someone. I have done so much work in my own self-development, I feel I can offer others a very whole self in a relationship. I hope to find someone else who can do the same.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Empathizing and understanding where people are coming from, particularly emotionally. No doubt this is why I want to become a counselor. I am also smart and witty with humor, and this is always enjoyed by the people I am around. I’m also quite adept at rational thinking, thanks to my background in studying both the natural sciences and philosophy for many years. I am always thinking about things and trying to extrapolate my subjective experiences to a greater universal understanding of what it means to be a human.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I’m friendly, confident, and comfortable as myself. I am natural and my personality doesn’t really change much, no matter who I am with or where I am at.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I most recently read the Asian Saga series by James Clavell (i.e. Shogun, etc.), East of Eden by John Steinbeck, Spartacus by Howard Fast, and many books on psychology and psychotherapy.

Favorite movie for nostalgia reasons is The Fellowship of the Ring. More recently I watch most any action, adventure, sci fi, comedy, fantasy movie with about the same reaction that it was fine entertainment but nothing great. Every once and a while I see a drama that I really appreciate the message or emotional content of, but I have a hard time remembering the names (…I have seen a LOT of movies)

Shows I recently watched were True Detective…and that’s about it, I don’t really watch TV and haven't owned one in about a decade.

In music I like Death Cab for Cutie, The Decemberists, Arcade Fire, Explosions in the Sky, Cold Play, Imogen Heap, Radiohead, Mogwai, Mono, Rasputina, Sufjan Stevens, Interpol, Vangelis, Mumford & Sons. I haven’t looked into new music since college so there is probably a lot of newer stuff that I’d like if I found it.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. IPhone for music/audiobooks
2. Unprocessed foods
3. Hot drinks
4. A Journal
5. Chapstick
6. Glasses
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Where my growth edge is and what I can do to be more authentically myself in my actions. How I could help others in self-growth while avoiding the pitfalls I have made in my own journey. When mushroom hunting season is going to start. Getting out into nature again soon.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Working or watching a movie or going out.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Horror movies will keep me awake at night

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You’re interested in meeting as friends but with the explicit goal of checking out the possibility for romance. I sympathize with the fact that online dating kinda puts the cart before the horse, and is not the most natural way to meet or ease into “checking someone out”. I’m not interested in rushing, but I am here with the hopes of finding someone with the potential for a long-term relationship.
