My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a riddle, shrouded in mystery, wrapped in a tortilla, within an enigma. I have a sometimes dark, sometimes sophomoric, sometimes sophisticated sense of humor. I like to be silly, but am self-aware enough to know when it and isn't appropriate. I prefer someone who can dish it out as well as they can take it, but also knows when to stop. Someone who doesn't confuse a dark sense of humor with just being an asshole. There is a difference.

A friend, whom I hold in high esteem, recently called me, "the nicest fucking person on the planet." I wouldn't go that far but I, dark humor aside, am pretty fucking nice. I'm intellectually curious and, I like to think, fairly bright--and yet I have a spotty academic record and have done some stupid things in the past. I try my damnedest to learn from my mistakes. I am constantly working on my shortcomings. I try to count my blessings every day, because I actually do lead a pretty charmed life.

Perhaps the most extraordinary thing about me is my circle of friends. I'm an awesome friend to a select number of awesome people. I cherish them, even if I don't always say so. I am fun to be around, but I also need my space.

I crave open lines of communication. I fall down on this sometimes myself, but it's what I'm striving for. Someone who will tell me like it is, tactfully yet truthfully. Without resorting to innuendo or insults--always with the best of intentions.

I want someone who's grown in and out of relationships, who is complete with or without me...or anyone else, for that matter. Someone intelligent, strong, and funny...yet humble. Someone whose pain has manifested itself into compassion rather than bitterness. Someone ambitious...for life's passions not for money. Someone who appreciates culture, but isn't a snob about it. A grown up without being stuffy. That enjoys Disneyland. Spur of the moment road trips. And Mystery Science Theater 3000. Quick-witted, warm, and who is OK with lazing about in our undies on a Sunday watching football until we finally decide we want to go to Venice and people-watch over lunch. Someone kinda like me. But maybe with boobs.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I recently quit a soul-crushing job in construction management and am back in school majoring in Social Work, with an English minor. I work as a bartender to pay bills. I also do a lot of volunteer work. I give art lessons to patients at Children's Hospital of L.A., and I help take care of dogs at a small shelter in Long Beach.

I've also dabbled in stand-up comedy and sports blogging. I may get back into one or the other...or both...if I have the time. But I'm definitely not good enough at either to make any money off of it, strictly as a hobby.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Giving names, voices and personality to animals and inanimate objects. Though for some reason, everything I give voice to has either a Brooklyn or Cockney accent.

Also, back scratches. No really, I'm the goddamn best at it.

And my Bloody Marys are awesome.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
They can never quite figure out what the Hell I am. Popular guesses include: "Some type of Middle-Easterner", Jewish, Italian, Greek, or anywhere in the Mediterranean for that matter. As one comedian put it,"I'm a little miscellaneous in the face." For the record, I'm of Mexican descent. With a hint of Dutch on my mom's side.

I can also be awkward as fuck, but I'd like to think in a charming way. Also, I smile pretty easily...despite sometimes having "resting bitch face". Or, as my grandma would have said, "having a puss on".
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
(A) Anything by Haruki Murakami, Jasper Fforde, Franz Kafka, Douglas Adams, Ann Beattie, Harlan Ellison, Margaret Atwood, etc.

(B) Jaws, Amadeus, The Godfather, Godzilla movies, The Usual Suspects, Airplane, All Monty Pythons, The Return of the Jedi, Let the Right One In, Despicable Me, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, most Pixar films, etc.

(C) Radiohead, Depeche Mode, Massive Attack, Morrissey w/ and w/o The Smiths, Portishead, The Cure, ladytron, Helio Sequence, Hooverphonic, Bjork, The Beatles, Air, Sia, David Bowie, Gotan Project, Pink Floyd, New Order, Stars, Zero7, Van Morrison, Apples In Stereo, Weezer, Headwig and the Angry Inch soundtrack, Kinky Boots Soundtrack, etc. I also like classical music, oldies, some jazz; I'm open to a lot of things but I'm also very particular.

(D) Any combination of chocolate and peanut butter, Thai, pizza, Italian, Mexican, Indian, Jewish delis, pho, dim sum, Korean BBQ, Texas BBQ, Carolina BBQ, etc.

One thing I hate though, is dried fruit in desserts. Raisins, cranberries, blueberries, etc. Fruit by itself is fine as a snack food, but don't try to pass that shit off as dessert. Otherwise we'll have to fight. If dessert were an 80s teen movie high school, I'd definitely be the sterotypical, letterman jacket-wearing douchebag villain.

"Look, raisins, your kind just don't belong here, man. Dessert High is for chocolates ONLY! Why don't you go back to the Valley where you came from. Where you belong." (Peels of in a Camaro with hot girlfriend--who happens to be a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup--while a Simple Minds song plays in the background)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My iPod, underpants, 8.5 hours of sleep, my dog Gunther, NPR, road trips, 'Too Cute', single malt scotch, sports, and Yogurtland. Sorry, OkC, ten just satisfies my mild OCD better than six.

In addition, here are some things I could definitely do without:

Coffee, sushi, soccer, religion, Ayn Rand, heights, hashtags, overt signs of wealth, apathy, anti-vaxxers, creationism, the Kardashians, Whole Foods, and 'Twilight'.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Where I can find good Mexican food here. It's a requirement--otherwise I don't know how viable this thing is, long-term, Seattle. Also: A Jewish deli, Korean BBQ, good Indian food, and Texas BBQ. Seattle is really disappointing, so far, as a food city. No, I don't care about your seafood. Salmon is something you HAVE to eat, after your doctor says you need to raise your HDL cholesterol. No one in the history of ever has said, "Ya know, I'm really craving salmon right about now." That sort of thing is reserved for donuts, or pizza, or cheeseburgers. It's the Ben Affleck or Paris Hilton of foodstuffs--it's all over the place, but fuck if I can figure out why.

Jesus Hufflepuff Christ! Does everyone now go rock climbing? I have zero interest. 95% of Seattlites' profiles include a rock-climbing photo. Get down from there! You're going to put an eye out or something!

I also think about Godzilla. And sports. And Godzilla sports. And cheese. And public transit systems. Among other things.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Plotting your demise. Or working. Or both.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
The two apps I use the most on my iPhone, by far, are Family Feud and Solitaire. Apparently I've skipped turning into my parents and went right ahead turning into my grandparents. If I start watching '60 Minutes', or begin referring to 'Matlock' or Telenovelas as "my stories", just shoot me.

I don't hate that Katy Perry "Roar" song.

And if you fill out this section with something like, "Ummm...if i said then it wouldn't be very private LULZ.", I'm going to judge you. Hard. It's not asking for the nuclear codes or your social security number, people.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You love animals. You're a bit nerdy. You're nice to your waiter/waitress. Seriously, you should always say please and thank you to anyone in the service industry, it's really not that difficult.

I'm WAY more likely to respond if you write more than "hey", "what's up" or some other generic greeting. Put a little thought into it, personalize it a bit. Show some sign that you actually read my profile, then you're much more likely to get my attention.

Also, you don't have any ridiculous preconceptions about bisexuality. And if you answered "No" to the "Would you date someone who is bisexual?" question, but still message me...seriously, why would I bother?

Definitely message me if you want to talk about hockey. Or if you find these videos as hilarious as I do:
