Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I've really come to a realization about whom I want to get to know
/ talk to / etc. It's axiomatic that people will judge others for
their looks and their intelligence. But, ultimately, this is
unfortunate. Baring study and working out, which can affect your
degrees of both of these somewhat, you are pretty much stuck with
what your genes have granted you. People are far less often judged
for what is actually a choice: how nice you are to those around you
and how hard you work. In the end, no matter how smart or beautiful
you are, if you are a lazy douche then you are wasting
I've been told by a number of my female friends that ever guy lies
on here about their height. Apparently everyone adjusts themselves
up 2-3"... well... I"m actually 6'0"... I suppose I should lie and
put 6'3" then to combat the assumptions??
I'm a Los Angeles native who graduated from SC. I've never tried
any form of online dating before, and I realize there is still a
stigma attached to it, but I figured it would be worth a
I believe that people should always follow what they want to do in
life. Too many people settle for what is sufficient but give up on
chasing what is necessary.
I can come off as intense sometimes, but that is mostly because I
enjoy a good debate.
I have a core group of friends who I've known for a very long time.
I consider myself extremely lucky to have grown up with some very
excellent people around me.
I love travel. My most recent trip was Berlin / Paris.
I love sports. I used to play football in HS and rugby in
HS/College. I don't play anymore, but still try to stay active. I'm
not in as good shape as I was in the rugby days, but I'm working on
it. I love the NBA and English Premier League soccer. Its
definitely not necessary that a girl like sports, as long as she
doesn't hate if I get excited about a Laker or Liverpool game.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Currently managing a private education center here in LA.
Pondering either Law School or a MA/PhD History program. Most
people are horribly bored by History, but I love it.
Want to finish up a couple writing projects before I go back, and
in the meantime managing a few side ventures.
Basically.. a lot, but not enough... Finding a way to be my own
boss and live off of my own creativity. 9 to 5 forever sounds like
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Maybe some other things.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have very broad shoulders and good posture, which makes them look
even more broad. I'm also a drop-11 in jackets, so usually gets

I love reading. Sci-fi / Fantasy novels. Non-fiction: historical
and current. Malcolm Gladwell and Chris Hitchens are currently
filling up my Kindle.
Movies: I really like all types. Some top choices would be: The
Shawshank Redemption, Inception, The Dark Knight, The Godfather,
The Last Samurai, Lord of the Rings, Aliens, and of course all the
requisite stupid guy comedies.
Shows: Castle, Modern Family, Community, White Collar, The League,
Musics: I like a varied array of music. As a kid I pretty much only
listened to classic rock as a consequence of my dad. Still listen
to a lot of it. Like heavy metal but not screamo. I listen to a
-lot- of electronica but could do w/o dubstep. I very much enjoy
classical. Pretty much everything but country and bad rap.
Basically my first concert ever was Crosby Stills Nash and the next
one I have on the list is Rammstein in May.
Food is great. I love eating out and exploring new restaurants. I
like most things and will try anything once.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
In a non-specific order:
1) My car
2) Friends and family
4) Physical Activity
5) Good food, currently Sriracha obsessed
6) The internet
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The future, the present, and how I'm going to get to the former.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Usually going out with friends or possibly staying in if I've been
very social that week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I fear failure?
I don't really keep too many secrets, but please...feel free to dig

then hearing others' views and opinions."
You like dumb, nerdy stuff.
You're ok with the fact that I will most likely be pretentiously
