My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
This profile page is still a work in progress. I will be updating as time allows. Consider this a preview of what is to come.

In the spirit of honesty among strangers, I need to make a confession. This is the profile of Adrian. And I am not Adrian. My name is Tom. I have mostly flattering things to say about Adrian, with one notable exception: he is not good at presenting himself. As such, I have commandeered his profile so that the women of the internet might have better insight into who Adrian is and what his dating potential might be. This was not his idea. He originally filled out his essays on his own. But they sucked (I’m sorry, Adrian. You’re welcome, ladies).

I recognize that this section is entitled “My self-summary,” and Adrian is not filling this in himself. Well, hopefully you’re attracted to rebels, because when the circumstances call for it, Adrian and I, we have a comfortable relationship with rule-breaking.

You can ask Adrian anything you’d like; he’s an open book. But allow me to highlight that book for you:
- Born in Wisconsin
- Early youth in Oregon
- High school in Las Vegas
- Early college in Hawai’i
- Finished undergrad in Minnesota
- Graduate work back in Wisconsin
- Exchange studies in Germany, France, and Kiev
- Spells in NYC and Miami suburbs
- Currently living in South Korea, teaching English

Now that the dry geography is out of the way, I’d like to share two specific stories that I think are particularly illustrative of Adrian’s character.

The Other Kind of Man
"All things considered, there are only two kinds of men in the world: those that stay at home and those that do not."
- Rudyard Kipling

I was on a road trip with a friend, on the way back to NYC from Portland. Adrian was living in the Twin Cities at the time, and we stopped for a visit, since we were passing through anyhow (for the record, a visit with Adrian is worth driving days out of your way). Adrian was about to move back to Las Vegas, to be closer to some of his family for a while. Since the airfare is about the same either way, with one day’s notice, we invited Adrian to join us for the rest of the ride back to the Big Apple. And he accepted. The end.

Short story, I know. But I feel like this says a lot about the guy. He’s ready to travel on a whim. He just packed his bags on the spot and hopped in the car.

Like a Bird on the Wingman
Freshman year I acted in two plays with the same stage manager, a fantastic woman who, for the sake of this story, I’ll call Liz. Liz was creative, hard-working, intelligent – you get the picture. I was enamored. She was also astoundingly, effortlessly gorgeous. If you subscribe to the notion of ‘leagues’ in dating, you might say Liz was well out of mine.

I’d only been in one relationship before, and long story short, it hadn’t left me with an excess of confidence. I made absolutely zero effort in pursuing a relationship with Liz, figuring I didn’t have a chance.

Enter: Adrian.

Though I had never mentioned it expressly, Adrian was quick to divine my interest in Liz. He encouraged me to invite her to hang out with us, subtly talked me up, and occasionally made himself scarce. I couldn’t pick up on it at the time, but Liz was sending cues that she was interested as well. I guess she was just as shy as I was. After numerous pep talks from Adrian, I ended up asking Liz on a few dates (though I never had the guts to call them that). It was still borderline a just-friends thing, but Adrian wasn’t about to let me miss this opportunity. One day the three of us were at lunch, and Adrian blurts out, “So are you two dating or what?” We knew he was asking because he really genuinely cared, and it was just the right amount of humor. Liz and I both laughed and blushed, but I think that was just the push we needed to openly recognize we were both romantically interested in each other.

So… I kind of owe Adrian one.

(side note: This was years ago. Now I’m ballsy as fuck. And Adrian is even more endearing)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
This is actually Adrian here... I was in Korea last year but am now growing roots in Milwaukee having started a career with an awesome company. I'm now trying to expand my circle of friends and find a person to share my life with.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Emotional Stability: I officially stamp Adrian drama-free.

Risk (the board game): Considering his phenomenally horrendous luck with dice, it’s amazing that he wins this game as often as he does. It speaks strongly to his foresight and sense of strategy.

Rolling with last minutes changes: aka putting up with me.

Memorizing Things: This one I’m not sure about. He definitely has a better memory than I do, but mine is awful. At any rate, he has a good sense of history, both personal and worldly.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
From my personal observations, the general consensus on OKCupid seems to be that most biographers feel unprepared to answer this question about themselves. In Adrian’s case, you might think he’d be at a slight advantage, as he is not the author of his own profile. I would argue that, as a guy, I don’t really have the information you’re looking for. But I will hazard a guess. My speculation is that women notice first that, though tall, dark, and handsome, Adrian is not the classic image conjured when you imagine a man who is tall, dark, and handsome. His Germanic and American Indian heritages are both apparent, but combine to give him a vaguely exotic look.

If you haven’t checked out his Photos page, perhaps now would be a good time.

In terms of character traits, Adrian is quick to engage in intellectual/academic deliberation, but also quick to smile. I’d call even odds on which trait you notice first.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Anything that leads to personal reflection or good conversation.

Here are some hints: Classical music. Historical dramas. Pasta primavera.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Skipping the basic necessities

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What my future will be like...
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
If it’s important to you that you date a gentleman with a strong concept of what a typical Friday night should entail, it may be in your best interest to move along now. Thanks for reading as much of his profile as you have. I’m afraid Adrian may not be your type. We wish you the best of luck in your pursuit of amore.

If you’d like to join Adrian on a Friday evening, here are some places that I think he (and you, if you’re a good match for Adrian) might enjoy:

POSCO Museum: From their website - “The POSCO Museum has systematically organized and exhibited the traces of the employees at POSCO, who have overcome diverse adversities and created accomplishments. The museum will be a living educational center that can give the younger generation dreams and hopes.” Fascinating. I wish I could go with you.
Hwanho Sunrise Park: Perhaps better for a Saturday morning.
Beopgwangsa Temple: Actually, any of the places listed here should be good:

Or maybe just try a new restaurant? Adrian just got to South Korea, so help him explore the city a bit. Please.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I think it would be poor form for me to answer this. I encourage Adrian to tell you embarrassing stories about himself, but it isn’t my place to do that for him.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Please don’t message Adrian if you’re a smoker or own a cat. I think he’s actually probably fine with smoke and cats (excellent band name), but if things go well between you and him, I’m going to end up hanging out with you too.
