Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I've come to the conclusion that I'm rather terrible at writing
these things (I know -- we all say it). Fortunately, I found a
template for a "quality profile," which I blatantly stole in my
attempt to woo my fellow relationship seekers:
Hobbies (in no particular order): Sporting events, museums, Netflix
Nights, poker, improvisation, comedy clubs, incessantly quoting
movies (warning: a date with me will likely yield a horrible Inigo
Aspirations: Travel the world, make people laugh on a daily basis,
learn how to play the guitar and/or keyboard
Work/life balance: I am a Director of International Programs/ESL
for a local college. I also perform and teach improv comedy on the
side. I'm a firm believer that work stays at work and should remain
separate from quality (insert your name here) time.
Quirks/traits friends admire: A good friend of mine recently
designated me as the "go-to pick-me-up" guy. (In other words, I
always strive to lighten the mood in funky situations). I'm also
quite handy in Quizzo, as my knowledge of useless trivia is rather
(for better or worse) extensive.
Cute faults: As much as I hate to admit it, I’m consistently in the
running for the unofficial title of “Klutz of the Year.”
Likes (again, in no particular order):Traveling to as many places
as possible (though I have a ways to go), my iPhone,
laugh-'til-you-can't-breathe moments, John Candy movies, spicy
food, classic 80s cartoons, rushing to IMDB to prove that [insert
actor here] was in [that movie], making up my own words (see the
Dislikes: Intolerant people and onions. That about sums it
- Someone who is also looking for a long-term committed
- A combination of old soul/goofball-at-heart
- A partner who is willing to discuss the sociocultural impact of
The Karate Kid (and is willing to pretend the Jackie Chan version
- Someone ready for a spontaneous road trip on a moment's
- Someone who tolerates my overuse of parenthesis.
- A partner who enjoys the outdoors, the arts, and maybe the
occasional sporting event...but sometimes just loves having a
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
In general: Working, performing improv, while wondering if Firefox
will ever actually recognize the word "improv". (It is a word,
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Pac-Man (All modesty aside...ghosts don't stand a chance).
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Physically, I'm guessing the blue eyes. On a non-physical level, I
think most people see me as an affable, funny guy. I'm usually
smiling/laughing on a pretty consistent basis.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I'm a huge fan of biographies, my favorite being Steve
Martin's "Born Standing Up: A Comic's Life."
Movies: Princess Bride, Karate Kid, Rocky I-IV, American Beauty. If
I could unearth one movie from the vault, it would be the
hilariously bad employee training video from the time I worked at
Toys R Us when I was 16 years old.
Shows: If everyone talks about it on Facebook/Twitter, chances are
I haven't seen it (see: Breaking Bad, Mad Men, and Walking
Music: I tend to go through phases with my music preferences. My
current band du jour: The National.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1.) Family/friends (natch)
4.) GPS (I admittedly lack that whole "good sense of direction"
5.) The word "awesome"
6.) My Keurig (i.e., an increasingly expensive investment into my
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I'm generally plotting my next vacation and/or meal (not
necessarily in that order).
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
There's not really a typical Friday for me. I might be performing,
going to a comedy club or museum with friends, grabbing dinner with
family, or watching god-awful 80s movies on Netflix ("No Retreat,
No Surrender", anyone?)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Regrettably, I can never undo the first concert I ever
I've already said too much.
