My self-summary
WARNING: Long profile. Read on if you like, but you've been warned. :)

Perhaps it's about time to go out of the box for a change... I hope you'll forgive me for being straightforward and for using "I" quite a lot in this self-summary. It is, after all, about me.

I usually take things safe but I enjoy the occasional adventure. Maybe I could say, I take two steps back before making any big leaps.

I have size 13 shoes. Wide. You do know what they say about men with big shoes, right? We got big feet.

If I like to get involved with a person romantically, I'd rather not say it, but I will make her feel it. I'm more of actions than words, when it comes to this aspect. Don't get me wrong though- I'm not downplaying the power of the word. It's just that I put more weight in what one does than to what one says.

I'm not perfect, but I am choosy to an extent. This is a dating site, yes? I like having a good conversation about anything, but please, understand that I consider my time as a very precious thing and I disdain wasting it. There are messages that I will not reply to, and that's to say I am not interested. Quid pro quo, I sent out heaps of messages that I don't get replies to.

So, dear reader, I take pride in who I am and what I've accomplished. I've had my share of victories but these did not come without my share of failures and heartbreaks. But with that said, I find myself thinking that there is still something more for me to do in this life, what I could consider as my greatest accomplishment. So maybe that's why I created this account, so I can find YOU to share it with.

For now, let me stop here, if you don't mind. Superego's acting up, making me cringe as it tells to stop writing about myself too much.

UPDATE: I met a few OKCupid members in the last few days... Can we please stop being deceptive? Just be you. If you're born a man with a heart of a woman, just be upfront with it. I'll respect your lifestyle and choices.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm taking things one step at a time, doing what I'm really good at: earning (and spending) money. I used to live abroad until recently and I just got back. So here I am, working a cozy 8 to 5 gig with a few friends.
I’m really good at
Keeping myself humble? Yeah, right.

But seriously, I'm good in math, analytic and logical reasoning. This, with my better than your typical memory recall capacity, almost makes me seem like a nerd. But if that's the case, I'll be proud to be called one.

I can do small talk and I can speak in public. I have an uncanny ability to calm angry people, as long as I'm not angry myself. I'm good with computers and gadgets- almost like a techie. Oh, I'm like a human GPS, so I'm a good guy to travel with.

And I can cook very, very, very good food. :)
The first things people usually notice about me
Someone told me it goes in the following order:
Height (6'1)
Eyes (Chinky, disappears when I smile)
Shoulders (Broad-ish)
Midsection (I'm a man!)
Voice (I am a teacher so forgive me if it's more solid than normal)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
A good read would be a James Patterson, Grisham, or Star Wars book. An occasional Coelho, Mandino, Uris, Zahn, Rice, or Sheldon wouldn't hurt to pass my time.

On food, Japanese is my favorite, but my gastronomical pleasures come from different cuisines. There are, however, a lot of delicious food that I, unfortunately, do not like to eat. We can talk more about that if you like.

On shows, well, my favorite cable channels are the: 1) History Channel, 2) Asian Food Channel, and 3) HBO. But I barely have time to watch so I just torrent most shows, i.e. Suits (on now!), GoThrones, Falling Skies, Homeland, Walking Dead, et al.

I have quite a peculiar taste with regard to movies, but my basic premise is that I like the movie that makes me think in the end.

On music, I think most music from the 80s, the 90s, and early 2000s are good. In my opinion, they may be right when they say "The best songs have already been written."

Oh.. I like anime. Yeah, I do. If you ask me further just how much I do, scroll down.
The six things I could never do without
1. My watch
2. My wallet
3. My smartphone
4. My car that has 5. a change of clothes and 6. a jacket.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
... what I should do to rule the world. I am serious about this.
On a typical Friday night I am
When I am single: Avoiding traffic by going straight home or grabbing a bottle or two with friends.

When I am in a relationship: You tell me. What do you want to do? I'll be with you anyway.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I make people uncomfortable by singing Japanese songs while driving...
You should message me if
...you like a good conversation, even if it starts with just the birds and the bees.

...you are not crazy, weird, or looking for someone to pay your rent and your bills.

...you are not after a free ride.

...you are looking for a friend.

...you're biologically female.

...you've actually read my profile.

...you really look like how your pictures show. I'm trying not to be a dick at all, but let's not waste our time on pretension, eh? You wouldn't wanna show how you look like at your best when you are looking for people who you want to love you when you look your worst.
