Hello, I'm trying out the whole Match.com thing for the first time and am having trouble making my profile really stand out. I'm getting a little writers block as well. I've tried doing the funny thing and it just comes across as corny. I'm not fond of my writing skills and what I've put together feels it's a little flat. Let me know if anybody has any suggestions for improvement. Of course, any grammar corrections are more than welcome as well.
More inside and Thanks!

Profile name: maybejustrex (from a Tom Waits song)
Headline: I like intelligent women. When you go out, it shouldn't be a staring contest. (Frank Sinatra)
I’m from Denver and I recently returned to The USA from a 3 year stint living in Buenos Aires, Argentina. I've also lived in Madrid, and Southern California.
I work throughout the Spanish speaking South America and enjoy international travel and meeting people from cultures other than my own. My future goal is to begin working as a consultant designing training programs for expatriates and cross-cultural teams. Due to this line of work, I do tend to travel back and forth frequently and for extended durations so I'd like to meet someone with a strong desire to travel.
I am a big reader and one of my proudest accomplishments is that I read over 100 books in 2010. I like to learn what makes people and society tick so enjoy reading books about psychology, sociology, and political science.
When I’m in a new or big city I like to just wander around and see what’s going on. I could do it for hours every day and just stop in somewhere to have a meal, coffee, or a beer.
I am a cornucopia of useless knowledge and therefore a formidable opponent in Trivial Pursuit.
I have 30,000 songs in ITunes and I like Jazz, blues, country, rock, and soul. I really believe there ain't but 2 types of music; good and bad. I play guitar and tried the pro thing for a while and moved to LA, but it wasn’t a good lifestyle for me. Now I mostly just strum Johnny Cash tunes and I sing some mean Elvis a capella.
I like food. Federal Blvd. may be the greatest place to eat in Denver with all the Vietnamese, Mexican, and dim sum.
I enjoy people with a good sense of humor and an understanding of the ironic. I find the occasional heated yet playful argument to be a good time, so I’d like to meet somebody not afraid to speak their mind. I have a lot of different and diverse interests and it is important to me to spend time with people who are interested in "something" as well. I’m looking for someone with a sense of intellectual curiosity, a passion, and/or unusual interests in life is something I appreciate in a person.
