Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I've been on this site for quite some time now. I've had some fun
dates (I don't like to think of dates as "successful" or not) and
I've met some nice people. I've been single by choice for a bit
since coming back from some time abroad and starting a new teaching
job, but I think I'm about ready for some companionship. At least
for a while.
I'm a pretty relaxed person most of the time. It doesn't really
make sense to me to freak out about things very often. When I do
freak out it's probably a good idea that you do too, because by
that point the shit is probably quite deep.
Love and friendship are very important to me. The physical element
of a romantic relationship is obviously important, but just as
important is the emotional connection. I like kids, too. I don't
want any anytime soon, but I do want them. Probably three.
I work as an ESL teacher at a language center at UTD and love the
job. It almost doesn't feel like I'm really working. (Almost.) The
students are fun and my colleagues are badass, plus it helps
scratch the travel itch while I'm paying off my debt to the
Department of Education. (Hooray for student loans!)
In my free time I like to hang out with friends, smoke hookah, got
for walks and bike rides and play the ukulele (badly).
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Teaching English, reading books. Planning trips and trying to bone
up on my Spanish after a few years of unfortunate neglect. And
paying off my student loans. That part isn't so much fun, but you
do what you've gotta do.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I can order a beer in six languages.
The first things people usually notice about me

My eyelashes, apparently.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Movies: The Ninth Gate
Shows: River Monsters
Music: Mozart, Chopin, etc.
Food: pretty picky. ask if you really want to know. Or want to make
me dinner or something.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Coffee, meat, pretty, dark-haired women, breakfast food, the
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Honest answer? Whether I've done all the grading I have to do. That
and lesson plans.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Hanging out with one or more of my harem of beautiful girlfriends.
We usually hang out at my house and raid my parents' booze cabinet
while we wait for my mom to make us tacos. (Friday is taco night.)
Then we stay up late (sometimes even past eleven!) watching
cartoons and drinking cool aid with booze in it.
Also, that's a joke. I usually hang out with friends or watch
Netflix. Or go to a bar.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I thought The Dark Knight was good, but not worth all the hype.
