My self-summary
Wanted: One witty , rebellious, resplendent, and intelligent woman.

I'm an aspiring academic, artist, and activist. History was my major field of interest and teaching, my trade, but I have interests that reach far beyond those pursuits. I want to make a difference in the world and I'm always thinking about the impact I can have on the lives of others.

I love to travel and discover new places. I can find enjoyment in visiting almost any place and learning the stories behind them. I'm an information sponge that regularly gets updates on when the next online test for Jeopardy will be.

I'm not athletic, but I love sports, especially baseball, football, and golf. I often find more enjoyment watching a sporting event on TV than any other kind of TV program on today. I also enjoy going to the gym, mostly to lift weights and practice martial arts. I try to live a healthy lifestyle as best I can and I hope that any romantic partner I have would do the same.
I play the guitar and make an attempt to write my own compositions.

I'm just looking for something casual and fun right now. I work two jobs right now and have little time for myself, let alone a serious relationship. If something more develops, thats great, but I'm not looking to settle down right away.

Ultimately, this site is flawed by its modernist belief that a sterile scientific analysis of two people's likes and dislikes can somehow determine their compatibility. Therefore, I'm very willing to meet in person quickly because only through interaction can we determine if we have chemistry.
What I’m doing with my life
I just graduated with an M.A. in history and I'm planning on getting a phd. Right now I teach community college part-time and work full-time in a lumber yard. (I didn't just say that to sound extra manly: it is true, I teach at a community college)
I’m really good at
Writing, teaching, playing guitar, building things, working with my hands, selling outdoor power equipment, and most importantly, I am a fantastic listener.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: The Great Gatsby, Slaughterhouse Five, the Natural, 1984, Beowulf, Lord of the Rings, The Silmarillion, American Lion and any number of other academic history books.

TV Shows: The Office, Arrested Development, Parks & Rec, 30Rock, Breaking Bad, Walker Texas Ranger, CSI, all the various Sherlock Holmes-inspired fare (Monk, Psych, House, Sherlock), European crime dramas, King of the Hill and old Simpsons episodes.

The six things I could never do without
Good music, good food, good beer, family, friends, and faith in God.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The Cleveland Indians, the Civil War, kung fu, how to improve my golf game, vinyl records, and the Lockview's macaroni and cheese.
On a typical Friday night I am
Generally not at home. If I'm not at work, I'm out on the town.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Instead of dipping graham crackers into milk, I prefer to use orange or grape juice. I'm probably the most rebellious person you'll ever meet.
You should message me if
If you like smart guys.

If you lead a healthy lifestyle.

If you like guys with beards.

If you don't mind me talking about nerdy things like history and baseball all the time.

If you'd like to make a new friend.

I don't regularly check this site, but I do get email updates if someone messages me, so if you like my profile, don't be afraid to say hello.
