My self-summary
"And if you'd took to me like a gull takes to the wind,
Well, I'd have jumped from my tree,
And I'd have danced like the king of the eyesores,
And the rest of our lives would have fared well..."
-The Shins

Love is as simple as being given a choice between being with somebody, and the winning lottery ticket, and having it be no choice at all. That being said, I don't know if I've ever been with someone who would have chosen me over the winning ticket.

Don't get me wrong. I'm still an optimist. I want to see where it goes, because you never know. But I promise I'll have the decency to tell you if I think I'm not the one for you, or you're not the one for me. There's also a halfway decent chance that I'll tell you that you're pretty amazing, as I have a tendency to see the best in people.

So why are you here and what are you looking for? A good time? A cure for a broken heart? A life partner? Let's find out...
What I’m doing with my life
"Did a large procession wave their torches,
As my head fell in the basket,
And was everybody dancing on the casket?"
-They Might Be Giants

I'm an educator. There is so much good that can be done in the world, but first we have to have a better understanding of the world around us. Nothing has made this more apparent than the current election. Trump supporters please swipe left or whatever it is you do on here. I also have always had a passion for writing and performing music. Maybe I'll play you a song sometime.
I’m really good at
"I keep drinking the ink from my pen,
And I'm balancing history books up on my head,
But it all boils down to one quotable phrase,
If you love something, give it away..."
-Bright Eyes

I'm good at listening; knowing random trivia; caring about what you care about; funny accents; sex; humility; irony
The first things people usually notice about me
"I see the colour in your eyes,
I see the images I own,
I see more colour in your eyes,
Than the reflections from purple skies..."
-Black Rebel Motorcycle Club

A general poll has revealed the answer is my eyes. Always surprised it's not my posture, or possibly my resting bitch face.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
"We dance to all the wrong songs,
We enjoy all the wrong moves,
We dance to all the wrong songs..."
-The Refused

Books by Salman Rushdie, Thomas Pynchon, Gregory Maguire, Stephen King, Lovecraft, Shakespeare, Gutenberg, Hammurabi, "God," cavemen. You know, the classics!
Movies by David Lynch, the Coen brothers, Wes Anderson, Tarantino. Also Big Trouble in Little China, Real Genius, Office Space, Lock Stock & Two Smoking

Shows: Arrested Development, Buffy/Angel, 30 Rock, Game of Thrones, Community, Louie, The Wire, Twin Peaks, Doctor Who, Key and Peele, Archer. And Mystery Science Theatre 3000! (wawahh)
Food: Thai, sushi, Indian, seafood, Italian, Mexican
Music: The Smiths, Interpol, Radiohead, the Old 97s, Johnny Cash, Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins, They Might Be Giants, Lil Wayne, the 80s, anything I can dance to, and pretty much anything else. My iPod is having a major identity crisis.
Six things I could never do without
"It felt cold inside
So we threw the radio onto the fire
It felt good to watch it
Burn away to nothing ..."
- Idlewild

In no particular order:
Music, friends, books, my kids, laughter, imagination.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
"Am I more than you bargained for yet?
I've been dying to tell you anything,
You long to hear,
Cuz that's just who I am this week..."
-Fallout Boy

Every time I get on one of these dating sites, I fall into a familiar pattern of gradually changing aspects of my profile to meet other people's expectations, until I eventually get so fed up with myself that I delete my account.

So this time I am committing to remaining true to myself no matter what. You may or may not like what you see, but at least you will know that I am not playing any games. What you see is what you get.
On a typical Friday night I am
"Saturday waits, and Sunday always comes too late,
But Friday never hesitates..."
-The Cure

My Friday night companions are frequently a beer and Netflix. Save me from myself. Or recommend a show.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
"At the right place and right time, maybe tonight,
In a whisper or handshake sending a sign..."
-She Wants Revenge

Wouldn't you like to know?
You should message me if
"I am still right here where I've always been,
So one day if you're bored,
By all means call me..."
-Morrissey

Message me if you want to. It's really not that complicated.
