Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Everybody says they have a hard time describing themselves, I like
to think it comes naturally. People are more or less afraid to
compliment themselves. I'm a boisterous, funny, and generally
likable person. I go out of my way to try and make the world a
better place to be and I like to picture myself the intellectual
cross between Leonard for sweetness and Sheldon for aloofness on
the Big Bang Theory.
I prefer to keep my religious views largely to myself. I'm a
scientific liberal metaphysical Catholic. I used to have a more
convoluted explanation, but suffice to say I believe in evolution
& I'm pro-choice to the hilt but I also believe in an afterlife
and that this is merely one stop on the grand journey through the
I'm a loving person in all honesty, a true and hopeless optimist, I
don't get down like some people do, nothing is able to stop me from
my appointed rounds, I am a metaphysical postman making his rounds
and if that is off-putting, I understand, but it is who I am and
what I do with my life.
Also for you MBTI types: I'm an ENTP.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Finishing my PhD in Political Science at UNO. I currently teach
American Government for them and I take night classes three nights
a week. Otherwise I'm pretty busy with school work but I actually
do take time to enjoy life.
I'm finishing this 6' by 3' table top right now, it's about 1/2 way
done and it takes a ton of sanding. >.> *Coughs up sawdust*
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Teaching, seriously, it's what I do.
Being likable? I like to atleast think so...
I used to bowl and do archery alot but both have fallen off. If
you're game for either I could use a partner and an excuse to go do
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I never ask people but I'm remembered everywhere I go. I attribute
it to my size but everybody insists it's my pleasant demeanor and
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Back to reading white papers and government research. I'm going to
try and read "The House of Morgan" over the break.
Movies: Inception, Robocop, Saving Private Ryan, Clue: The Movie,
and Johnny Dangerous (I just realized I think this is the movie
I've seen the most times in my life besides maybe Back to the
Future trilogy) ...The list goes on but I tend to prefer comedies
over mindless action films. The Back To the Future Trilogy are some
of my favorite films of all time. I would truly enjoy owning a
delorean sometime in my life.
Also if you've ever seen the Phantom of the Paradise we should
chat. I'm thinking of getting the owl mask from that movie just so
I can have an excuse for halloween dress up. :D
Music: I tend to live on alt nation on Sirius/XM - punk rock, top
40. Naming bands is not my forte but I'll try since all the cool
kids seem to do it. Rancid, op ivy, the distillers, sleigh bells,
the eels, garbage, be your own pet, Florence + the machine, Lady
GaGa...really the list goes on but I feel cool enough now.
Food: I'm adventurous, I'll try anything once.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
This space either makes you seem vacuous or seem like you're trying
to hard. The more I read them the more I hate this space. But let's
try and make me sound like neither.
Vehicle to getaway in
Books - preferably the good variety
Good people - I used to list friends, but really I just care about
being around good people. They'll be friends by virtue of their
Memories - Good, bad, ugly, they're mine and I can't imagine ever
regretting a thing in my life.
Life - both the cereal and the concept! Once you've stopped living
it for a while you realize how much you miss it.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What kind of life am I leading? Am I being the person I want to
As an aside, I also mull over the future I have in this realm of
existence, who will I spend it with, how can I impact it for the
better, and when will I know.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Reading, flat out. Nothing special. I probably am watching Youtube
while I grade if I'm not reading. I've developed a few reliable
board gaming friends. I'm sadly the most pathetic person for bars
and clubs. I can't hear very well in loud places so it makes
understanding other people near impossible. I'm more a coffee shop
type of guy anyways.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I never learned how to ride a bike. I've finally gotten around to
buying an adult trike so I get to ride endlessly now and I am
getting my endurance back for decent length rides.

PS: I know most people won't read down to this level but as the
internet seems to bring about more anonymity in an unhealthy
fashion I do reply to all messages regardless of my personal level
of interest if only to be polite. I picture this place as a giant
sidewalk where if you were to say hello I should atleast be obliged
to reply back with a pleasantry. Call it a pet peeve.
