Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I grew up back East and left to escape the cold and general mindset
of the people I kept running into. I just completed my doctoral
dissertation and finally graduated last May. Yaay!!
I work with kids and they're cool, but sometimes the adults they
associate with (teachers, parents, etc.), not so much.
Unlike most men, I enjoy sports and tend to enjoy competition...
This includes watching football/baseball and participating in most
games. I hate losing, but I'm a good sport :)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a practicing School Psychologist and no, that does NOT mean I
can read your mind, and yes I AM analyzing everything you say
I have finally finished school and feel like the world is my
oyster. My passport is current. Suggestions?
When I first moved out to Arizona, I thought that SDCA was my place
to settle down because it encompasses my favorite things in life:
Sun, the ocean/beach, and music. This way I can enjoy beautiful
weather year round. If California can improve its education
standards and economical ridiculousness, I'm there. Until this
change, do I stay in the AZ frying pan of ridiculous politics and
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I can be a bit of a smart-ass at times, which I guess I'm pretty
good at. If you're cool (genuine), I can be an awesome friend. I'm
also a 'nice-guy' to a fault, thanks to too much t.v. indulgence
and romantic comedies through out my life.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Well, I'm told my eyes, because they're big and brown because I'm
full of ... insights. Hopefully its not some food stuck in my teeth
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

a) I mostly read for enjoyment when I'm waiting to get on a plane
or for a doctor's appointment in their lobby. Outside of that, I
read to increase my own professional competency. I don't consider
myself well read in terms of novels, biographies and other
wonderful literary resources, but I really do hold individuals who
are in high regard.
b) I feel like I was raised by movies and T.V. and have quite a
gamut of pop-culture info. I tend to enjoy a variety of
P.S. I know that many women indicate wanting a guy with a good
sense of humor, but if you cannot tolerate The League, Family Guy,
It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, or Robot Chicken, I don't know
if I can appreciate YOUR sense of humor ;) I have netflix currently
and am catching up on the shows I've missed out on for the past
couple of years that I did not have cable or TV programming.
c) Music is my solace. My favorite activity is going to a show (NOT
a concert) to see my favorite bands. I tend to listen to
indie-rock, alternative acoustic, punk rawk, pop-punk, folk/blue
grass, and yes even some emo. I feel like I listen to a lot of
other types of music (sans country, hardcore, jazz, and classical
lol). At the moment, I tend to steer towards The Head and the
Heart, Ray LaMontagne, The Lumineers, Mumford and Sons, Bon Iver,
Of Monsters and Men, The Avett Brothers, Blind Pilot, Imagine
Dragons, and Walk the Moon.
d)Italian is my favorite food genre, but I enjoy a ton of variety
(the spice of life). I will eat it unless there are Fear Factor
ingredients in it.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
3. my computer/internet
4. tasty foods
6. my Ipod/Pandora
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My future; I always wonder whether or not I am choosing a career
that I can survive in (all helping-professions have a high burn-out
rate for optimistic young people trying to change the world). I
also think about relationships, and when/where I'll find my better
half. While I'm not in any rush, I'll admit that watching my
friends find happiness in settling down to start families gives me
another thing to look forward to.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
De-stressing from the sheer exhaustion created by the week. It
might include happy hour with my friends, or just plain coming home
to relax with some wonderful food and a movie. As the weather gets
warmer, weekend camping trips are planned.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I put too much stock into match%. I often fail to take into account
that match% just means we answered the question the same way. Of
the successful relationships I've seen, most of these couples have
so many differences that their partner probably would be around a
Also, I'm impressed with women who are NOT traditional in the sense
that they too are willing to send the first message. Thank you for
eliminating some double standards :)
You should message me if

you would like to get to know me more and vice versa. You might
find that fewer of the single ones left are assholes than
originally presumed ;) You should also message me if you have a
really high Enemy percent rating... I may need to keep an eye on
UPDATE: Recently I've noticed that I've browsed profiles, was
interested, rated the person highly, and then for whatever random
reason didn't message... Sorry. I have yet to determine if this is
unconsciously on purpose (being a wuss), or if I am THAT
distractable. (I'm leaning towards the latter)
