My family has told me my profile does not accurately reflect my sense of humor. Since I'm looking for a serious relationship, I have written a serious profile. Since I also enjoy being funny, however, and would like to find someone who shares my sense of humor, I am adding a hopefully humorous piece to each section. I guess you can decide if you would like to read the serious, the funny, both, or at this point most likely neither. :-)
The serious: I am a very proud and open gay Jewish man. My career reflects my deep-seated passion for social justice. I love learning languages and have lived all over the world, including in Africa, Asia (the Middle East), South America, and Europe. I mostly went through school, volunteer, or other sponsored programs, so please don't think I can afford to travel as much as that might imply. I am doing my best to settle down now and create a home in St. Louis. I am a huge tennis fan, and I love to play board games and card games. I would like to be more politically active.
The funny: How do I compare me to a winter's day? I am equally lovely and equally temperate. I hope that being able to paraphrase one line of Shakespeare gives me a lead on winter. Seriously, though, I'm not really into Shakespeare or literature or paraphrasing, so that's not really the most appropriate way for me to describe myself. I'm also now cognizant of having used "seriously" in an allegedly funny description, so I think I'll call this my rough draft and try working on the next section.
I am gentle, thoughtful, and will write back
