Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm looking to meet some new people. I have a solid core group of
friends but I'm always interested in expanding my horizons. Things
get so busy it's hard to meet as many new people as I'd prefer. I
love to learn new things and experience new
places! I try to do as much as traveling as possible. In the past
year alone, I listened to the call to prayer in Sultanahmet during
Ramadan in Istanbul, I sailed the Greek Isles and watched the sun
set over Santorini, rode horseback across the hills of Ireland and
strolled the streets of Dublin during St. Patrick's Day, was
awestruck before Michelangelo's statue of David in Florence, camped
out on Times Square for New Year's Eve, attended an ancient play in
the 2500 year old Greek theater of Epidaurus outside of Athens,
strolled over the original stones of the ancient forum alongside
the Colosseum in Rome, excavated a portion of the 65 million year
old KT Boundary in New Mexico, cruised the canal waterways of
Venice and trekked the more than 13000 ft to the top of Imogene
Pass in Colorado. I wish you knew the wonders I've seen... so many
beautiful things. I'll be perusing the Prado and sipping sangria in
Seville come March! All that being said, I'm not always so serious!
I actually do laugh a lot and joke around quite a bit. ;)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a high school science teacher by day, college professor by
evening and caped crusader by night. Teaching is my second career
as I am a former professional recruiter. I attended UNT with
degrees in Philosophy and Biochemistry. I graduated from Texas
A&M - Commerce with a Master's in Physics and I'm working
towards a doctorate level degree in Education with an emphasis in
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
living, debating, gaming, learning, annoying people, solving
problems, being easy going yet adventurous. There's a lot of life
to live! I just want to live some more of it.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am well spoken if not pedantic. I have been accused of being a
contrarian for arguing all manners of points and problems. Some
people see this as menial and a waste of time but I am fascinated
in developing richer ideas, opinions and well thought out
arguments. That doesn't mean I don't also tell funny stories and
make sarcastic remarks, though!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Most recently, I've been reading Stephen Hawking, "Universe in a
Nutshell." For my classes, I've been reading on general relativity
and special relativity. I have A Song of Fire and Ice loaded on my
Kindle, but I don't know when I'll get around to it. The last
fiction I read was The Time Machine.
My favorite movie is probably the Matrix. Yes, all of them. I think
the first movie set expectations for the rest that left some
feeling misled. I enjoy how the movies still operates effectively
on different levels of analysis while still bringing high level
philosophy to the cultural center. I also highly enjoy Memento, the
Lord of the Rings, the Meaning of Life, Shaun of the Dead among
I watch a lot of random TV shows. I love to watch science fiction
series and I've seen quite a few... but as far as shows still in
production I enjoy such shows as Dexter, South Park, True Blood,
It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Game of Thrones, 30 Rock and the
I love food. I enjoy trying all kinds, types and genres. I like
going to nice restaurants but I love small local places that serve
up quality. There aren't really any foods I explicitly detest but I
do prefer certain ones more frequently than others.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Internet. Friends. Games. Education. Sustenance. Conversation.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
everything. I've been accused of always having an opinion about
something. I'm actually more confused when people do NOT have an
opinion on a certain topic. I've been known to come up with random
thoughts completely off topic, to suddenly answer questions from an
hour ago (what was the name of that song!?) or to slide in a random
sarcastic joke. That being said... I'm actually more fun loving and
easy going than my writing style lets on. I am quick witted but not
silent and brooding!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
trying to find something interesting to do! I love going to
theater, sporting events, museums, shows or just out with friends.
I try to do things on Fridays because it makes my whole weekend
feel longer. If I do nothing on Friday, I don't feel like my
weekend has began until Saturday... so I've lost an entire day!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Almost anything. I'm a very honest and straight forward person...
to a fault for some. I'm definitely not shy!

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're independent and don't require someone else to make you happy
for you. You don't have to conform to gender roles. You'll open
doors for guys and girls both and enjoy paying your share. You
don't require someone to take care of you but enjoy it when they
choose to do so anyway. Your easy going but respectable. You
noticed when I just used the wrong homonym.
You're not supermodel skinny but you care enough about yourself to
stay somewhat in shape. You enjoy exploring the world and learning
new things. You love culture both high and low. You think the best
thing about life is living it.
But mostly... you think we could talk and have fun together. I
think all good things start with that solid foundation!
