Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I get to know myself a little bit more everyday. Who I thought I
was completely crumbled when my wife of seven years left me in
September, and I've been on a journey of self discovery ever since.
For example the first time in my life I feel like I'm truly being
myself, and it feels great.
I used to bend to the will of my partners. Fold, cave, however you
want to say it, I used to put them first and myself always last and
it lasted until il I was used up and they either moved on or I did
because I was simply too burned out to continue.
I've learned a lot though, in the last few months, first and
foremost that I'm stronger than I ever imagined. Second, I'm
starting eliminate negative people from my life, those who take and
drain my time, energy, and resources and who give nothing back in
return. Third, I'm learning to put myself first and take care not
to spread myself to thin. It's great that I want to save the world
but I can't do much for anyone if I burn out.
Since September, I've begun a relationship with one of my closed
and dearest friends. A girl who I've loved for years but could
never pursue because life is complicated like that sometimes. She
is the sweetest, nicest, most giving person I know. Since being
with her, I am once again in touch with my creative side. Something
I haven't given much thought to in many years. I've been getting
into photography. She edits my photos and does a tremendous job at
that. She is also teaching me to play the mandolin which I'm
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I worked over the summer as a line therapist, which had me spending
most of my time teaching relationship building and development
skills to children on the autism spectrum. It was fun, engaging,
and rewarding work that I'm totally in love with. Unfortunately,
however, I had to give it up to continue my degree and pursue what
I really love.
I'm currently resuming my undergraduate degree. My intent is to
obtain my BA in education to become a high school biology teacher
and LGBT youth advocate.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Getting lost in my own thoughts
Baking delicious pies- particularly pumpkin and other fruit
Roasting poultry- the ducks I cook for Thanksgiving are drool
Executing artistic endeavors- I enjoy many artistic hobbies, from
drawing and painting to sewing and embroidery, and I'm generally
really good at most anything I try my hand at.
Small romantic gestures- I enjoy performing small romantic
gestures. It's not at all uncommon for me to give someone I' care
about a random bunch of fresh picked flowers, cutesie love notes,
poetic verses, or small gifts for no reason.
Making up horrible puns.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My hair. It's voluptuous and gets a lot of attention.
Aside from that, people tend to notice that I'm intellectual. I
have a ton of interests and hobbies, a corny sense of humor and I'm
very lovable. I can come off as a bit pompous at first, but that
tends to fade once you get to know me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
My favorite book is Battle Royale by Koushun Takami. Favorite movie
is The Orphanage. Show-Buffy, Song-Please, Please, Please, Let me
get what I want this time-By: The Smiths, and I'm a sucker for most
all types of sushi.
I'm odd in that I'm so opinionated I actually have favorite
everything. Go ahead, think of a category, any catagory, and I bet
I have a favorite thing in it. No, seriously, try it! :P
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.

5. physical activity
6. Being creative
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

Feeding homeless people.
Why the trip going somewhere always seems to take longer than the
trip back, even if you follow the same route.
I find myself fascinated by individual histories. I like to visit
cemeteries and think about the lives of the people there. What were
their occupations, were they happy, did they die with regrets, are
they remembered or thought of fondly? I especially find myself
often wondering how people died, particularly if they were young. I
guess this also explains my fondness for the "Spoonriver Anthology"
by Edgar Lee Masters, one of the greatest poetic works in
I think a lot about travel and places I'd like to see.
If I could imbue my younger self with the knowledge I possess
today, how would I change things?

This is really just a fraction of my day to day thoughts. I
honestly think about so many things, it would be impossible to
document them all.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Up for anything! I'm new in town and don't know very many places or
people. I'd really like to meet someone who can show me around.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

It's not especially private but I was an exotic dancer for two
years and I have learned some really fun tricks from my
