Remember in "Goodfellas" when Joe Pesci's character got bent out of shape when Ray Liotta told him he was "a funny guy?" I'm the opposite. I want to make you laugh.
A lot of overweight people say they developed a sense of humor to deflect the hurt they've experienced. I developed it purely because there's no reason not be be as happy as you can. "Life's too short to be pissed off all the time." - "American History X"
Chivalry is alive and ingrained in me. I'm a southern gentlemen born and raised in Northern California with zero southern roots. I've been accused of having an accent... by idiots.
I've also been charged with looking like Brendan Fraser. I say this with no pride whatsoever. If it's true and you like that sort of thing, fantastic. If I had my druthers, I'd go with my idol, Brad Pitt, but I know the difference between a playfully amusing comparison and the ravings of a lunatic.
I can laugh off almost anything. I delivered jokes at my Grandma's eulogy. Not in a roast type of way, but to make sure the mood was lighter. Any time you need it, I'm prepared to bring some levity to the situation.
I'm handy around the house. I swear, I can put together a piece of IKEA furniture without having to read one word of instructions. If you're saying to yourself, "there aren't any words. There are only pictures." Well, that's the joke.
I keep myself healthy playing hockey. Every Thanksgiving accompanies some pigskin tossing (but if I ever appear in a Brett Favre Levi's commercial, please put me out of my misery). Coming out to throw/catch the football during these occasions is as sought after by my family as is helping my mom in the kitchen.
My friends (with little to no compensation) would tell you I'm completely loyal. Dog-like, really. So, I hope you like them, though I've never owned one. I'm looking for a best friend that has no fur and only two legs (that statement can be waived if you're a circus carny and/or amputee).
I'm looking for a girl who's into me. One who's my biggest fan, while I can say the same for her. One I can smile at for the rest of my life. One who's happy with who she is, but continues to strive to be better. I would never ask for something I don't expect of myself. One who's attractive both inside and out. I'm happy to rip on people, making each other laugh and dropping f-bombs as we please, but one who won't do it around my parents (they'd find a way to ground me from 300 miles away).
A quote that sums up my outlook on life: "Get busy livin' or get busy dyin'." Can you name the movie?
