My self-summary
I recently obtained my second graduate degree in clinical psychology. Yikes, what happened? I thought I'd be done with school years ago... Oh well... Now I'm going through that annoying transition phase figuring out where I'm going and what I'm doing next. I guess a little more about myself. I love to cook, especially for my friends and family. I'll try cooking anything and everything from sushi to pizza. And on that topic I take pleasure in the simpler things in life. Time with those I care about is what's important. But a crazy night every now and then is nice. I've had lots of other hobbies such as playing the piano, drawing, etc. but life is busy and I forget to take time for such things. I did build myself a kitchen table and benches so I'm pretty handy. I'm part nerd, part exercise enthusiast, part romantic, and part lost. There's this journey called life, figuring out how we fit in it, even if we seem to be on a direct path, and not to mention the times we fall down and get back up. Besides being human, I am 100% loyal and will always be there for anyone who has ever been in my life no matter what.

I'm looking for a real relationship but as I noted, I'm in a transition so I don't know what that will mean. Yes, I am a guy interested in something serious that could lead to something more serious. I don't believe in perfect matches but compassion, understanding, and patience. You never know the possibilities if you never try. I believe in opening the door for my lady, not because she is a woman, but because I care to. I can be a rock when necessary, a confidant, a shoulder, and a smile. I will listen and care to do so. I have no absolute expectations of a partner. Ideally, she should a tomboy, a nerd, a girly girl, a chef, a lover, a fighter and much more. The less limitation the better but everyone has their uniqueness and nobody can be all things.

What kind of person are you?...
What I’m doing with my life
What AM I doing??? What's next?
I’m really good at
I've tried my hand at different things whether it's drawing or cooking. In fact, I just like trying new things. I love to cook though, everything from burgers to sushi. In fact I love to have gatherings with good friends and just cook for them. Just good conversation over great food and drinks.
The first things people usually notice about me
This one drives me nuts. I spent years in the military and almost as many studying martial arts so I can kind of stand still like a statue sometimes. So I might give an awkward first impression. But really, I have quite a soft and silly side that few get to see.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Brave New World, Armour, Tao Te Ching, anything by Stephen Baxter or Alstair Reynolds
Equilibrium, 300, Last Samurai, Princess Mononoke
Walking Dead, The Black List, Bleach
I'll listen to most music but you'll find mostly rock on my playlist.
All foods.
The six things I could never do without
Good conversation
My tech toys
Goals
A good kitchen
Close friends
Something a little secret
I spend a lot of time thinking about
As a graduate (again...) What am I doing...? Why does everyone else seem like they know what they are doing?
On a typical Friday night I am
I'm a big fan of netflix but lately I've been doing a lot of work around my house. A little cleaning, a little fixing, and a little updating. I've also been checking out more museums recently.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't keep too many secrets. I have no problem admitting I was stranded and lost in Tijuana once.
You should message me if
If you're honest and caring. A nerd. Like trying new recipes. Likes traveling. Enjoys thought provoking conversations. Or just cause.

But especially if you have a kind heart.
