"Hoping to find Ms. Right..."
Hi, you can call me Paddy, which is the nickname the Irish give to
St. Patrick. I am a former elementary school English teacher, and a
former textbook editor. During my free time I like reading novels
and watching movies, mostly action or war films. I also play
airsoft on Sundays. I prefer the mountains over the beach, so I do
go hiking whenever the opportunity presents itself. I also like
watching musicals and singing songs by Frank Sinatra on the
videoke. As for fitness, I prefer solitary sports like running and
working out in the gym.
I've been online dating since 2011, though I took a hiatus when I
had my first relationship at the age of 30. Now that I'm single
again, I think I deserve to move on and get back into the game.
If you have any questions, feel free to ask. I'm an open book. :D

Cheezy pick up lines? Lol. I think I'm good in editing stuff and
writing copy (but I still struggle with writing profiles). I have a
deep singing voice, which I use for bellowing sappy love songs.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I read mostly classics. I like action films and superhero movies. I
enjoy smooth lounge, and I eat anything, though I particularly like
Mediterranean (shawarma rice, anyone?), and Japanese cuisine.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Seriously though, I spend a lot of time thinking about my
appearance, like my receding hairline, the growing gap in my teeth,
and the warts on my face. *sigh* The signs of aging...
Update (10/5/15): I just had my warts cauterized yesterday! :D Now
I have spots all over my face...
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Probably watching a movie (usually by myself). If I don't have grad
school the next day, I like to unwind by smoking a panatella and
sipping Chardonnay under a moonlit garden with my buddies, the
