My self-summary
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 down.

I'm in one of those "moods" where I'm not into "faking it" anymore.

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 life.

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 disguises.
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 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 and also anything by the beat-poets.

As far as music goes I mainly like metal, punk, and a lot of other random stuff.

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 soundtrack.

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.

Dig it?
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 others.

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 personality.

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 ...
