Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
This self-summary was really outdated, so I thought it was time for
Hi, my name is Brian, and I am a high school teacher of Spanish and
World History. I have been divorced for a little more than a year
now, so in terms of what I'm looking for, while I'd ideally like to
be in a relationship, I'm also really looking for friends to hang
out with and have fun with, as a lot of my friends are in Richmond
(which I visit about once a month).
About me...I am a dork, guilty as charged. I have a Master Sword
and Hylian Shield hanging on the wall of my living room. I do enjoy
other types of games though besides videogames, like board games
and the like. I am also into sports, being a big Cubs and Bears fan
and I enjoy playing soccer and basketball whenever I can (I played
12 years of soccer going through school as a kid, and I recently
joined an adult league in town to try to get back into some sort of
shape). If you're into personality types, I am an INTJ...took a
test once in college and once a few months ago and got the same
result, plus the description fits well, so I'll go with it.
Education-wise, I have a Master's in History from James Madison
University. I did my undergrad. work at Longwood University in
Farrmville, getting my B.A. in History and my minor in Spanish. I
love history and overall academic learning in general, which was
the real reason I went into teaching as a career.
Hopefully this gives you a good picture of me...I really hate
trying to describe myself. Hopefully from this and the rest of the
profile you can gauge whether I'm someone you'd like to chat with.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Well, as mentioned above the large part of my life right now is
dedicated to my job as a high school teacher. For those who don't
know anyone who is a teacher, let me be the first to tell you that
it is a very labor-intensive field, but very rewarding at the same
Beyond that, I'm trying to get a bit healthier in my lifestyle now
that I'm on the other side of 25 and I have a strong family history
of heart issues. This means eating a little healthier and trying to
work in exercise where I can. This also means learning to cook for
myself...I'm not too great yet but I'm learning!
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
whatever dorky T-shirt I happen to be wearing (usually Star Wars or
Nintendo related). That, or the fact that I apparently don't look
old enough to be a high school teacher...I get that a lot these

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) Good food
3) Friends to pass the time
4) My laptop (like everyone else I am addicted to the
5) A full-time job. Once you've had that salary, it's impossible to
go back. Maybe not impossible...but I wouldn't want to try!
6) My sense of humor.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Everything. I took a personality test as a undergrad. student, and
the way it described my mind is that I see the world as a chess
board, constantly analyzing the pieces and movements, knowing my
strengths and compensating for weaknesses. As such, my mind really
never stops moving, from friendships to my work to overall
philosophical concepts about life and being happy as an adult in a

from a historical standpoint and darn if I can't make a valid
argument). You think I could be a cool guy to talk with.
