My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
A few things:

I'm inexorably drawn to smiles, especially those that make me smile back. So much so, that I may stalk your profile just to look at your smile. On the other hand, I almost never send messages on this site. It's a numbers game, and I'm not playing. So if you notice me repeatedly viewing your profile, but not messaging, it's 'cause I dig your profile but have no intention of shouting along with the mob. If you catch me stalking and want to talk, say so. It's the 21st century, and women who make the first move are sexy.

I live in Denton and work in East Dallas. I make the commute every school day, so it's not out of my way to hang out with anyone between those two points. But if you're on the East Dallas end, you've got to pick the spot, 'cause all I know so far is the job and Taco Bell.

We now return to your regularly scheduled profile...

I've been on this site forever and I've never taken it seriously.
I'm not about to start now.

More about me:
My whole life has been, for lack of a better word, weird.

My father is 3rd gen Lebanese from Boston. He served for 30+ years in the US military. He fully buys into shit like "The Secret" and the "Laws of Attraction," and constantly pushes it on me. If they had let him, his dog tags would have marked his religion as 'Jedi.'

My mother is an all-American Irish mutt from rural Oklahoma. She's a conservative fundamentalist Christian who's worked for the Salvation Army in one capacity or another since the dawn of time.

When I was 21, my father and I had this conversation:
Me: Dad, was I adopted?
Dad: No. Why do you ask?
Me: 'Cause I've been thinking about it, and I can't figure out how you and my mother got along well enough to fuck.
Dad: (after laughing hysterically for several minutes) Yeah. Me, neither.
*True Story.

When these two intelligent, if absurd, humans divorced, they decided to share custody of me by trading me off each school year. Long story short: I not only relocated every August until I was 14, but utterly shifted paradigms. The result is that I have never comfortably fit in anywhere regarding typical social identifications. Religion, for example, is an impossibly complicated subject and I could never accurately describe myself with any of the labels provided by OkCupid. Nor have I ever been able to fit into either side of the Northern/Southern dichotomy, nor Arab vs. Irish vs. American culture. Combine these contradictory influences with my own intensely introverted and contrary nature, and I think it's fair to say that you're just gonna have to get to know me.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Work: I teach. Which is absurd. You just have no idea.

School: I study Middle Eastern history. I'm currently on hiatus from college so that I can focus on teaching high school kids how to read and write. I'm not sure when I'll go back.

In the meantime, I still try to do some informal study in my spare time.

Music: Songwriter. Singer. Rapper. (Seriously.)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I read a lot, so it's hard to pick favorites, but...
Maniac Magee, by Jerry Spinelli
Friday, by Robert A. Heinlein
Heavy Metal Islam, by Mark Levine
The Book Thief, by Markus Zusak

I enjoy a lot of Sci-Fi, like Star Wars novels, the Dune series, etc.; and select Fantasy stuff like the Song of Ice and Fire and Temeraire series.

I also try to keep up with young adult fiction, so I can encourage my students (and anyone else, honestly) to be active readers. So, I'm reading the Divergent series right now, and read (and rather enjoyed) The Hunger Games series.

Jan. 11, 2014 - I'm still sobbing over "The Fault in Our Stars."
No one I know in the real world has read it yet, so I have no one to talk to about it, really. So if you have and you're willing to share that beautiful devastation with me, you should send a message.

Shows:
Ugly Americans
Futurama
Archer
Dexter
The Daily Show and The Colbert Report
Family Guy

Music:
Led Zeppelin
Nirvana
Fair to Midland
Atmosphere
Everlast

Food:
Kibbe
Taco Bell
Hot wings
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Everything. I'm seriously lost in my own head most of the time.
At any given moment, I'm thinking about religion, faith, history, politics, literature, music, relationships, and midgets. Yes, all at the same time.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
drinking Manischewitz, going out to terrorize goyim.
Stomping shagitz, screwing shiksas,
as long as we're home by Saturday morning.

(I cannot read that prompt without this popping into my head. Message me if you actually get the reference.)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I believe happiness is found in the giant chunky chocolate chip cookie you split with the person you just had sex with. Even if that person is yourself.

I want to watch the world burn. Just not alone. Let's make s'mores.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 21–39
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You want to invite me to a cool coffee shop, grimy dive bar, or local music show.

Note: nothing stated above is sacred. I'm interested in people, not statistics or types. I know a lot of folks are more concerned about who shouldn't message them as opposed to who should, but that's not me. I like having people to talk to and get a beer with, and hopefully one of them will be someone I dig who digs me back. In the meantime, we all need someone to talk to.
