My self-summary
I'm the type of person: who wants to pet every dog he sees and tries to makes kids laugh at restaurants; who tends to fall asleep during movies but likes to marathon a TV show on Netflix; who likes watching sports but never needs to watch a game; who lives for a good story but is awful at telling one; who would be okay living without my cellphone; who resents situations that require me to wear something dressier than Converse and jeans; who hums the last song I heard in the car while perusing the grocery store aisles and will pause a conversation to appreciate a song I love on the radio. My mom thinks I'm a catch.
What I’m doing with my life
Full disclosure: I know I should try to make myself sound as exciting as possible, but I value honesty over marketing. Instead, I actively seek to live a simple, peaceful life. Two-thirds of the week I'm comfortably a homebody. I work hard teaching and learning all day, and then come home to cook, walk the dogs, listen to some NPR and read on the patio, drink in hand.

The other part of the week I am looking for something more Austiny and exciting to do: a concert, movie at the drafthouse, brewery tours, road trips, etc.

I've recently taken up trail running, and run a few times a week. In fact, I just signed up for a 30k in June. Also, I try to do yoga a few times a week. I mostly work out so that I can guiltlessly continue enjoying beer and pizza.

I will stop whatever I am doing to play a board game.

My dog now has her own dog, and I'm trying to get him acclimated to our life. Most of our relationship is me cleaning up his urine and him trying to bite my things. Recently he ate a lamp. For real. Even more recently he devoured a steak knife. A mo'fo'n steak knife! He's hardcore.
I’m really good at
useless trivia (is that redundant?)
seeing the positive in a situation
waking up on-time, even when I forget to set the alarm
espirit d'escalier- when you think of the perfect thing to say, not when I could use it, but as I am walking away (isn't that just an amazing phrase!)
getting along with dogs and children
Muggle quidditch...that's right
The first things people usually notice about me
I get the "You remind me of (insert the name of any dark-haired actor/ musician)". Most frequently I get Jack White, John Mayer, or any Johnny Depp character depending on how long my hair is. Hearing this makes me want to shave my head.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I read. A lot. You should too. It's kinda important. Mostly fiction and the New Yorker, which I've given up staying current with. Currently working my way through Anna Karenina. Update: Finished AK but keeping it here to brag. It's as good as they say.

Movies- I've always wanted someone to go with me to the showings of classic films at the Paramount. If I'm honest, I admit I fall asleep through more movies than I make it all the way through.

Shows- I don't have cable, but I like watching shows on Netflix. Currently watching How I Met Your Mother. Sometimes I feel a lot like Ted. Update: Finished HIMYM. Now watching Dexter.

Music - I could happily talk music for hours and it is the easiest way to make me swoon. I've recently decided I want the music of Iron and Wine to be the soundtrack of my life; not that Sam Beam is my favorite artist, but that sort of sweet, simplicity feels like the pace I want to live. Also, every band should have a horn section. Usually I'm just listening to NPR. I especially heart Twine time.

Food - If it wouldn't kill me, everyday I would eat breakfast tacos and coffee for breakfast, pizza and beer for lunch, and sushi or some other delicious Asian food for dinner. How about a smoothie for a midday snack to ward off scurvy. Actually I try to eat pretty healthy and like to cook when I can. Spicy is good; I like my food to try to fight back.
The six things I could never do without
The numbers 1-6. Without them I would never be able to count to 7.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How I could be a better me. Then I decide that's too much work and read a book instead. I'm struggling deciding if that's ironic or not.
On a typical Friday night I am
I like to take Fridays pretty low-key, not only because it's the end of a long week at work, but also, because I get up early on Saturdays for a long run.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
One time a student said something along the lines of "the characters do do that" and I giggled. Doo-doo... Also, I can't hear "duty" without smirking.

Since I know you will be looking, I will likely be wearing converse or Toms if we ever meet.

I've proudly never take a "selfie".

Also, I find it sad when someone refuses to admit something here because it's too private. It's not admit your deepest, darkest secret; it's what will you admit comfortably. Don't waste an opportunity to be interesting!
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 24–35
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
You appreciate the Toyota Camry. Like the Camry, I might not be the flashiest car on the road but we still look classy enough, we're dependable and your friends and family will applaud you for your sensibility. We pay off in the long-run.

It's kind of important that you like coffee, red wine, and know something about music.

I like smart, independent, quirky women. Someone adorkable.
