My self-summary
Once upon a time there was…no – too fairytale-ish.
It was a dark and stormy night…no – too ominous.
A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…no…too…George-Lucasy.

A little about me: I’m left-handed, I've never had an Egg McMuffin, my dream vacation is hiking in Patagonia, I moved to DC when I was 18 and never left, I’m a good listener, I make a mean chicken and matzo ball soup, I'm really good at making people laugh (intentionally) I didn't have a birth certificate until I was 25 (I guess that’s what happens when you’re the youngest child), I think before I speak (mostly), I just had breakfast, people think I’m smarter than I think I am, I am the proud recipient of a challenge coin that I carry with me at all times (still waiting to be challenged, though), I've worked in psychology for 16 years but am not a psychologist, I've been taking TRX classes for 2 years, I once rode a camel in the Sahara for 3 hours and would be totally fine if I never did that again, I cycled over the Continental Divide. There’s more, of course, but that’s probably enough for now.
What I’m doing with my life
Saving the world one Marine at a time.
I’m really good at
Finding the humor in almost every situation.
The first things people usually notice about me
They probably notice my annoyance at being asked stupid questions. Like this one.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I guess this section is meant to be some bizarre stream of consciousness that's supposed to proclaim me as a complex and fascinating individual. I offer you this instead.
the book whose last page I read over and over again: One Hundred Years of Solitude.
the movie that makes me sob uncontrollably every damn time I watch it: a tie between The Color Purple and Gallipoli.
Favorite show: I do watch TV, but nothing regularly and I don't know how to use my DVR.
My first true musical love that was not influenced by my older siblings: The Police
Favorite food: I'll have what she's having.
The six things I could never do without
puppy snuggles
red wine
I should probably say wine glass , but I'd have no qualms about drinking from the bottle if necessary
6 more things
I spend a lot of time thinking about
whether or not there are any spiders in my house.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I once threw a dart in my sister's back when we were kids. She has forgiven me, but still brings it up from time to time. The truth is, she had it coming.
You should message me if
You're dull and uninteresting, underemployed and overmedicated, smug, selfish, and sociopathic. I'm not actually looking for these traits, but to write that I’m looking for a guy who’s nice, smart, funny, blah blah blah, just seemed too boring for words. And in the words of Jimmy Malone, “Who would claim to be that who is not?” You should NOT message me if you're looking for hook ups, NSA, or whatever it is the kids are calling it these days. It would be a waste of my time and yours.

If you decide to message me, it would be nice if it was more than a few words long and gave some indication that you actually read my profile. Also, I will not respond to e-mails of profiles that have no pictures included. And, I'm sorry to say, I speak from experience -- if you only have one picture posted I also will politely decline to respond.
