My self-summary
I am a regular guy on the larger side. I used to put overweight for my body type because I didn't think the description "a few extra pounds" accurately described it. However, seeing that many women immediately dismiss you once seeing that I have decided to leave it blank. I enjoy a variety of activities and realize it is the company you keep that makes these things most enjoyable. I like going to sporting events, continuing my education, cooking and just hanging out and and talking about the issues of the day. I have traveled around some and like what I have seen especially in the Pacific. I am easy to get along with and definitely not a type-A person.

With that said, here are three of my pet peeves that I read in women's profiles. Motorcycle? Do you have some need for road rash or a a head injury? I agree, they look cool and are exhilarating at times, but after the first ride then what? Transportation for the warm part of the year and the potential for a small indiscretion (like turning your head to look at something or somebody not noticing you while riding) leading to your death. Also, aren't they kind of fascist? Only two people can ride at most. Not to mention the fact that if you think someone is cool or attractive because he has a motorcycle, aside from the obvious indication of superficiality, the mere fact that you have to buy something that then makes you cool are you really cool? I guess according to some women you are.

Secondly, you want a guy who is dominant? Haven't got over the Daddy issues yet? Like explaining to your friends after your boyfriend screams at you or someone else for some inanity like leaning on his car that he is just, "really passionate"? That's your dominant man. Yes, of course you are an independent woman. That's why you are looking for a man to tell you what to do and belittle you for not doing it.

Finally, you want someone who is financially independent? Look, that basically excludes anyone who has chosen a life of public service or experienced hard times in the latest economy, or you just want someone to lie to you about it. I would love to be financially independent. Maybe some day I will be, but I knew going in that being a teacher wasn't going to give it right away, if ever. Same goes for cops, firemen, and a lot of trades.

Oh, and one more thing. For those of you who select, "The Earth" when the question section asks which is bigger the Earth or the Sun. Please God and everything or anything that is holy tell me it is in jest, otherwise you should not be allowed to hold sharp implements or anything with an edge that might penetrate skin. Because if you are that stupid or overly committed to some religious interpretation of life, the universe and everything that tells you this is true, you should not have reproduced or be allowed to reproduce and are truly a danger to us all.

I am at ease, inquisitive, and pleased to meet you
What I’m doing with my life
I have professionally dedicated my life to education. I am a teacher now, and I am trying to finish my dissertation for my doctorate in educational leadership. I am a big believer in getting out and seeing life from as many perspectives as possible.
I’m really good at
I am really good at mediating between people. I am an excellent cook, as I worked as one during my early college years at night to help pay for my school. I am really good at making people feel at ease and I think that I am good at that because I am a good listener. I like to hear other people's stories and dont mind telling my own. I'm really good at being mediocre at golf.
The first things people usually notice about me
I am larger than you average person. I wear glasses. I am easy going.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Anything by Malcolm Gladwell, Stephen Ambrose, or Larry McMurtry. I liked simple movies with simple stories like Bottle Shock, Big Night or Trumbo. I like most music but not much country, and I am adventurous when it comes to food.
Six things I could never do without
reading, relaxing, interaction, variety, education, and women (in no particular)
