Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Ok, I'm gonna do a little experiment here:
I have another profile that says more about me, but I took it
I'm in one of those "moods" where I'm not into "faking it"
I teach ESL online, and make chump change doing it. I've got an ESL
certificate and I'm going to try to become a teacher at a college
or highschool but so far that hasn't happened so I'm just living my
I like metal music, beer and red wine, martial arts and competing
in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (I'm a brown belt and have been doing it
since 1996), cats, ethnic food, hiking and spending time in nature,
watching movies and hanging out with real people who don't put on
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I teach ESL online to Korean people for now but my goal is to
become a full time ESL teacher at a good college or high school and
spend the rest of my time training in martial arts and hanging out
with people who are cool (YOU??). Nevertheless, I'm still in
transition so 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.
I'm also good at wishing I was a character in Dazed and Confused.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm not even sure but I'd like to know.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Kevin Smith movies like: Clerks, Mallrats, Jay and Silent Bob
Strike Back, Coen brothers movies like The Big Lebowski,Fargo, etc
Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Dario Argento movies: Suspiria,
Profondo Rosso, Phenomenon, The Goonies, and too many horror movies
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 and also anything by the
As far as music goes I mainly like metal, punk, and a lot of other
I love Thai food, Indian and Italian.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I had a list of 6 things...but really this is a dumb question. Not
doing it anymore.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to progress as a human being.
Really that's the only real answer...and I've got a long way to go
and anyone who says they don't...well, you aren't being honest but
hey, I can't blame you. Honesty isn't always easy.
Oh yeah, I also day dream about reliving the 80s as some kind of
pseudo-teenage cartoon character set to a new wave
I know, it's confusing but I can explain if you are interested...
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Probably wanting to do something cooler than what I'm actually
doing haha, but it probably involves alcohol.
For real, I'm sick of pretending here.
There must be cool girls on this site who are able to feel where
I'm coming from.
I'm kind of annoyed with life right now.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I can be shy at times.
(What YOU should be willing to admit though? Probably that you
don't like reading long profiles so I'll spare you, and that if a
guy doesn't have his whole life figured out you aren't interested.
If that's true, pass on by now...)
You should message me if
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
You also must be accepting of the fact that my life path and
employment are in flux and yeah, I often like brunettes and latin
women with athletic builds but what I truly care about is
MOST OF ALL: Just be bluntly honest. I'm tired of trying to do
anything other than figure out where I'm going and what the purpose
of my life is.
I want to be in touch with something greater, something bigger, but
usually I'm just watching whatever new movie is on cable.
If you can earn my trust, we can talk and maybe just maybe I'll
surprise you ...
