Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
According to some tests I am INTJ. To others I am ESTJ. I guess a
short quiz can't define us as effectively as we would like. All I
know is that I am a sapiosexual focused on my pursuit of knowledge
and peace. I love books, music, and art. I am the quintessential
nice guy, and have been focusing much of my time working on
obtaining a peaceful and patient state of being.
I totaled my car a while back, and have not felt the need to have
it replaced. I attend Portland State and spend much of my time
downtown. Because of this, buses and bikes are just easier.
I am not interested in having kids of my own, and I know that for
many women this is a turn-off. I believe that there are enough
children out there who could use a positive male role-model, and I
would be better off stepping in and being there for a single mom or
My big goal in life is to see the sun rise on every continent. I am
going to school to teach, and would rather live in a nice condo
downtown than have a house with a picket fence in the
A perfect date to me would be a stroll through the zoo in the early
afternoon followed by taking the train to Washington park then
walking into downtown. After that I would like to grab lunch and do
some window shopping and people watching then finish up with a
visit to the Portland Art Museum.
I am looking for something more than a fling, but open to new
friends and adventures. If you have read through my profile and are
still interested in either getting to know one another as friends
or seeing if there is some potential connection, then I would love
to hear from you.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am currently a student at Portland State studying Linguistics so
that I can teach English abroad. I am writing my first book in my
free time and working on expanding my French. I tutor reading and
writing at a community college and volunteer at a no-kill shelter,
and am working on instilling healthier habits into my life.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Solving the Rubik's cube, making people smile, and being a shoulder
or an ear when one is needed.
The first things people usually notice about me

My smile. Not in that "oh, you have a nice smile" kind of way, but
that my smile is one of true happiness and that it is contagious. I
am always smiling, even in the worst of times.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Where to begin?
Movies/TV: I love The Big Bang Theory, but that is about it for
shows. I watch a lot of documentaries and sports.
Books: The Lies of Locke Lamora takes first with me right now. The
Name of the Wind and A Wise Man's Fear, and the Warded Man series
are close seconds. I am a fan of fantasy novels and classic
Music: The Weeknd, Christina Perri, Marina and the Diamonds, Birdy,
Tove Lo, Melanie Martinez... The list goes on.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Recently it has been Vlad Tepes since he is the protagonist in the
book that I am writing. Other than that, it has been where I am
going with my life. I've discovered that my goals have really
changed in the last few years, and I have been working out the
details of what I need to do to get to where I want to be. I am
thinking that I want to teach in Asia when I am done at PSU, but I

The most private thing I’m willing to admit

that I sincerely enjoy chick-flicks, and that almost every version
of Les Miserables (including the book) makes me get teary-eyed.
