My self-summary
I'm a good guy who wears his heart on his sleeve and is hopelessly romantic by nature. I am not one of those people who always knows what he wants. As cliche as this sounds, I do believe that life is a journey with many left turns, right turns, wrong turns and U-turns. In that sense I'm looking for traveling companions.

I like things a lot of Seattleites like- hiking, biking, camping, coffee, KEXP, et cetera. Except seafood and I think that's more of a mental block than anything else. I'm game for trying new things. I have my fears- heights, yikes!- but I can often push through them. One of my favorite things to do is just walk around the city with no destination, just soaking in the sounds, sights and smells (good or bad). I work hard, probably too hard, but in my free time I often have no agenda and am pretty flexible. I can have just as much fun at Target as I would at Disneyland.

I am most interested in making connections- friendship or otherwise- and trying to learn how to let the proverbial chips fall where they may. I enjoy meeting new people. I really enjoy it when new people aren't new anymore.
What I’m doing with my life
I make a living helping people. They talk, I listen and eventually I talk back. Sometimes we sit in awkward and uncomfortable silence and that's okay too. I do this one hour at a time, usually 6-7 times a day.
I’m really good at
Listening
Being a friend
Tennis
Parallel parking
Collecting and displaying terrible art
Karaoke

I am not so good at:
Scrabble (as an English major, I find this puzzling)
Super Smash Brothers (love it anyway)
Basketball
Housework
Playing pool
Confrontation
The first things people usually notice about me
I was built to plow rice paddies in the Philippines- short, barrel chested and stocky. I can go down low. Besides that, I think I have a nice smile. I like smiling.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Russian literature- Chekhov is my favorite, followed by Nabokov, then Dostoevsky. I read a lot of poetry and short fiction which suits my undiagnosed attention deficit disorder.

Movies: David Lynch (Blue Velvet, Mulholland Dr.), Pedro Almadovar (anything by), anything directed by or starring Christopher Guest (Best in Show, Waiting for Guffman), John Waters (Polyester is my favorite movie ever), Miyazaki films, Happiness, Mean Girls, Bridesmaids, Weekend.

TV: I'm currently watching Orange is the New Black. I love to watch The Travel Channel and HGTV. I also like Modern Family, Portlandia, Project Runway and now off the air shows like Twin Peaks, Strangers with Candy, Freaks and Geeks, and My So-Called Life (*sigh* Jordan Catalano *sigh*). I just got access to an HBO GO password so I plan on catching up there. Also a big fan of PBS and love me some Nature, Frontline and Antiques Roadshow.

Music: LCD Soundsystem, The Pixies, Kanye West, Beach House, Amy Winehouse, Girls, Massive Attack, Bat for Lashes, Janelle Monae, Daft Punk, Dusty Springfield, Etta James, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Arcade Fire, Vampire Weekend, Grizzly Bear, Spoon, MIA, PJ Harvey, Belle and Sebastian, Portishead, My Bloody Valentine, Robyn, Lykke Li, Best Coast, St. Vincent, M83, Tame Impala, Florence and the Machine, Mac DeMarco and Prince. Billie Holiday helped me write so many papers when I was in grad school. God bless her. The newest Beyonce album is my latest guilty pleasure.

Food: I subsist off of vegan plant based protein smoothies, chips & salsa and candy.
The six things I could never do without
Friends and family
My cat Boo-Boos
Tennis
Rock n' Roll
The internet
Laughter
I spend a lot of time thinking about
where I may have put my wallet and keys.
On a typical Friday night I am
usually at home. Friday nights I tend to be pretty beat after the work week and would much rather curl up in front of the TV than go out to a club or bar. But I can be persuaded.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I collect refrigerator magnets. If you travel somewhere I may ask you to pick one up for me. I also have a little bit of a Nintendo obsession.
I’m looking for
  • Guys who like guys
  • Ages 26–46
  • Near me
  • For new friends
You should message me if
you feel like it, I guess? I usually write back and, like I said, I enjoy meeting new people and catching up with those I may have met before.
