Throat clearing: I gave up on paying money to the Match men. But my profile name works in conjunction with a popular google based email service as well, so write me there if I tickle your fancy.
The long: Family (especially my nieces) comes first. I'm vegetarian. But I've run with the bulls in Spain. I did ABA for kids with ASD. But now: I am a PhD student at USC reading books. Which will buy me time to write my own. I am originally from the South Bay. But lived in New Jersey and New York for school. I love loud, angry music. But tend more often to listen to Neko Case. I can't stand most people my age. And would probably rather be flying kites with a pack of roustabout kids.
The short: Books. Music. Art. Travel. Soccer. Kids.
Things I do: Play the guitar. Yell in a band. Coach teenage boys in the finer arts of (association) football. Cook convincingly. (Promise!) Own and operate a small academic coaching company. Always brush my teeth.
Addendum: tattoos! Suffix (IV). Cut my own hair. Big Sur. Dali and Gala. Shorts stories are better! Five transcontinental drives! Five continents! And counting!
Additionally: I will open the door for you! I will pull the armrest up in the movies! You can share my straw!
And: I can't avoid honesty. Sometimes to my own detriment. I practice a guilt-free lifestyle.
Fingers crossed: I'd love to meet someone that I never get bored of. That challenges me and puts doubts in my head. That would like to subject her future children to random acts of midnight donuts. That is fluent with a compass. And that participates in car ride karaoke's. She likes to run. Or not. And she likes to drink milkshakes. She makes me nervous. Laughs at the unknown. Can spend a car ride without us having to talk. Doesn't text message me. Leaves voicemail. And is brave enough to spend her last dimes on a one way ticket to an unknown land. (With me.)
Alas: I never thought I'd rely on machines for romance.
