Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
People say a distinct characteristic of mine is my sarcasm and bad
jokes that typically result in people laughing at and/or with me.
It's chill and all in good humor though since I enjoy laughing at
myself and making others laugh.
I’m a Stanford grad, and after doing a couple years of education
research, I decided to become an educator. Regardless of what I do,
I’m a nerd—I enjoy learning, analyzing the world, concocting
amusing metaphors, and understanding other perspectives. I am
always down for an intellectual brawl.
My sanity relies on fitness. I’ve gotten into doing triathlons this
past year and get immense satisfaction out of testing my endurance,
and pushing myself mentally and physically. I aspire to have more
muscle mass (or tone) than other guys. Just because, well, that
would be cool.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Trying my best to support students in growing intellectually and
emotionally. I am in my first few years of teaching, so I spend a

Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

the same time.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Weekends (particularly Friday nights and Saturdays)
Friends and Family
Dialogue around race, class and gender issues
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Social inequity, my cultural biases, privilege and random questions
about stuff. How can you tell when an area is undergoing
gentrification or genuine improvement? What would happen if I
dressed like a dude for a day? Who the hell thought corsets were
ever a good idea?

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
…You can handle pretty bad--well in my opinion bad-ass--puns and
jokes. I appreciate people who can dish back at least the same
'caliber' of humor.
…You are willing to get yourself into nerdy debates about trivial
to more substantial things.
