Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a pretty down to earth, independent, open-minded person looking
for the same in a partner. I like to laugh and generally see the
glass half full. I like to spend time with friends and family and
try to make the most of what life throws my way.
I'm looking to meet someone with a similar outlook on life who can
make me happy and whom I can hopefully make happy. I'm looking for
someone with whom I can laugh, be silly and serious, and be myself.
And I'm hoping to find someone who will laugh with me, be silly and
serious, and be himself in turn.
If you are a generally positive and compassionate person who tries
to see the best in people and situations, if you value friends and
family, if you like kids, if you appreciate a good sense of humor,
if you can enjoy the simple things in life, if you recognize that
the world is far bigger than the place where you live and want to
explore different parts of the world, and if you feel like it's
important to try to do your part to make this world even just a
little bit of a better place, then I hope you'll contact me.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Luckily I have a job that makes me happy, teaching, writing, and
trying to do my part to make this world a better place. For fun, I
play tennis (the more, the better), hang out with friends, watch
movies, go out to eat, etc.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
listening to other people, procrastinating, finding humor in
situations, sleeping in, seeing the good in people and situations
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I read all kinds all the time. It goes with the job.
Movies: I'd watch pretty much anything but horror. My list of
favorite films is quite long. I tend to gravitate toward foreign
language and independent films over big blockbusters. That said,
mainstream films that I could watch over and over again include
Inception and The Princess Bride. I also tend to love most of the
films in which Gael García Bernal stars; he has been in some really
amazing, thought-provoking films and is a phenomenal actor.
TV Shows: Lost and Seinfeld are probably two of the best shows of
all time. My current favorite is Once Upon a Time.
Music: Favorites include Ozomatli and Lila Downs.
Food: I like most kinds and like trying different types of cuisine
(and I have a sweet and savory tooth).

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
family, friends, tennis, traveling, the beach, the outdoors,
mindless stuff, mindful stuff...
On a typical Friday night I am
