Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
In joining the world of online dating I am finally fulfilling a
prophesy spoken by a gypsy who wandered into the delivery room at
my birth. Just before my mother's last contraction the old women
announced to the room that one day your son will post a personal on
the internet. Now here I am. Maybe a stock tip to buy Apple would
have been more helpful.
I am shy.
Currently I teach American Government to high school seniors. Last
year was the best year of my career thus far.
I have a sarcastic sense of humor. My students continually tell me
I am dry. I tell them “as dry as the Atacama.” They usually follow
that up with an accusation that I am lame. I stand up and walk
around the room just to prove them wrong.
I was once a pretty competitive runner. I am now a much less
competitive runner but share my experiences as a high school cross
I live for the competition of team trivia. Currently I play
regularly with two different groups of coworkers.
I believe I embody those qualities everyone is right to seek in
another. You know the ones that make profiles sound like a
commercial for a network news team. I am dedicated, determined, and
I am a Myers-Briggs INTJ. Recently I took two more online and both
came back INTP. Maybe I am becoming more flexible.
What I am looking for:
I want that As Good as It Gets moment when I find that one woman
who “makes me want to be a better man.”
She will be intelligent, and strong, but still kind and empathetic.
Do you both smile and feel heartbroken for the child who comes
rushing in from the playground soaking wet from the start of a
She will be a woman of faith.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Dominating team trivia twice a week. We have also recently changed
one of the locations where we play trivia because we got tired of
competing against Google. I can not abide cheating.
Planning next road trip. It looks like Southern California is next
up. What is you favorite out of the way piece of Americana?
Finished a zombie preparedness drill with my nephew. Surprise
wake-up call at 6:30 a.m. and 3 minutes to pack before we run out
the front do and go camping.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
People who are around me for even a short period of time will pick
up on the fact that I am pretty book smart and like to look at
things from different perspectives to see where things can go
wrong, and solve those problems before they do.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
If someone was being honest about it, they would say they first
noticed the scarring from were I was burned before I was three
years old. It was an accidental home fire.
I'd rather they notice my super awesome hazel eyes.

I am a binge movie watcher. I will watch a lot of movies in a short
period of time and then go cold turkey. I am not a fan of horror

Rouge, Gandhi, Star Wars, Monty Python's Search for the Holy Grail,

Martian Chronicles. Almost everything I read today is
I am a total music moron. I do not remember lyrics, titles, or
artists. I am not a fan of heavy metal or rap. It is important that
I be able to decipher the lyrics in order to enjoy them. I have pop
40 and country stations programmed into the car radio. My Pandora
mix includes stations featuring the Beatles, Adele, Reba, big
bands, and Broadway. More likely you would find me listening to NPR
(kinda enjoying RadioLab of late), news, or talk while
Italian tops my list of foods. I love pasta and have a default
setting for chicken fettuccine with alfredo sauce. Simple Americana
is good with me as well. I have enjoyed every Thai dish I have ever
had. Of course I am good with Chinese and Mexican meals as well. I
am no foodie. In fact, I am completely content with a well
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Oxygen, fresh water, calories and the basic nutrients necessary for
sustaining life. I am not so inflexible that I could not learn to
survive without some convenience.
