My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm about getting ready to delete this profile. Been on here for years and it seems like a waste of time.

I'm a mixed bag for sure. I tend to surprise people a lot in life who assume one thing or another too quickly about me. I don't really quite fit the profile of that of a jock or an intellectual, though I'm maybe a little of both, though I'm shy at times, when comfortable I can be quite talkative and I have a good sense of humor. I'm open minded and like to think I can consider different points of view and get along with people from many different walks of life and from many different backgrounds.

My passions are: martial arts (I am a life long martial artist hold both a Brown Belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and a 2nd Degree Brown Belt in Kenpo, Karate and have competed in 34 grappling tournaments and regularly wrestle, box and kickbox), music (especially metal, punk, Funk, etc) reading (particularly gothic/decadent/surrealistic novels and anything involving vampires), movies (especially comedy and horror) and trying new ethnic food, hiking and enjoying the outdoors.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am currently in an ESL program and I hope to soon become an ESL teacher. If you're looking to settle down then I'm probably not your type as that is not my intention right now. However, that certainly does not mean I am just looking for a quick fling or that I am not interested in a serious relationship by any means.

As far as background and education are concerned, I got my B.A. in Philosophy at Bard and got my Masters in English about 3 years ago.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making people laugh, writing and anything to do with English, randomly reciting movie quotes, competing in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Submission Grappling tournaments and martial arts and holding my liquor haha. I haven't picked up the guitar in a while but I'm pretty good at that as well and played for 7 years and was even in a band for a short while.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Women usually complement my eyes or arms first (while sometimes glancing covertly at my butt Haha), but probably the first thing that someone will notice about me when they REALLY take the time to talk to me is that I'm not your typical guy. I can be very introspective at times but I can also be very comfortable at a party and people usually say I am more than meets the eye.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I love a wide range of movies, but my favorite genres would probably be comedy and horror/suspense. Favorites include: Kevin Smith movies, Clerks, Mallrats, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, Coen brothers movies like The Big Lebowski,Fargo and A Serious Man, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Superbad and Judd Apatow movies, Suspiria, Profondo Rosso, The Amityville Horror (both new and original) Jacob's Ladder, Terminator 2, The Goonies, Die Hard, and too many horror movies to list.

I like a lot of rare gothic/suspense/surrealistic novels in terms of books like The Monk by Matthew Lewis, Melmoth the Wanderer, Lautremont's Maldodoror, Dracula, The Turn of the Screw, anything by H.P. Lovecraft or Edgar Allan Poe, The White Witch of Rose Hall, The Blood Countess by Andrei Codrescu. Other favorite books include Great Expectations, They Cage the Animals at Night, The Dark is Rising, and poetry by The Romantics like Keats, Blake, Coleridge and Wordsworth. The Beat poets are also great, and I'm a big fan of Kerouac, On the Road, And The Electric Cool-Aid Acid Test.

As far as music goes I have a wide range of tastes but for the most part I love Metal (especially Finnish and Swedish), hard rock, punk, Goth, Industrial and Funk. I'm very open minded musically and I can usually find something I like from most genres. I won't even go into the list of bands because it would be simply endless and I'd get crazy about editing it everyday.

My favorite foods are Thai and Indian with Italian and Chinese a close 3rd and 4th.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) My friends 2) My family 3) Nature 4) Martial Arts 5) Music 6) Movies.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What I might like to do with my life and how I would like to be better at the things I am already good at. I also wonder why so many people tend to be so scared of honesty. People say you should "be yourself" but I see less of it in life than I'd like. I am the same person in private that I am in public. I've never been good at putting on a mask. I am who I am and I will make no apologies for it or try to pretend I am something I am not. If that's not good enough for a girl then she's not my type.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Hanging out with friends, at a bar, relaxing watching movies or who knows what else.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You have a good sense of humor, are patient, open minded and interested in dating a nice guy who isn't like all the others.

You also must be accepting of the fact that my life path and employment are in flux.

I particularly like playful girls who like to tease and be sarcastic ;), and I have a thing for latin women and brunettes with dark features, but those are far from being necessities.

Edit: By popular demand I removed my shirtless photo. I have to ask, why do women hate them so much? Guess they assume any man who is posing must be full of himself...
