Disclaimer: Here is the part where I either come off as a complete jerk, or as someone who knows what they want.....I don't make $100,000 a year, I'm 5'6 not 6'1, and I don't drive a mercedes. If these are the types of trivial things you're hung up on, then A) you're not really on here looking for a connection, you're looking for a dream guy who probably doesn't exist so you've already made it harder on yourself to find someone and B) you probably don't wanna meet me and so I don't wanna meet you either. I have a good job that pays me well, I drive a nice vehicle and live on my own and I'm a good guy who knows how to treat a lady. I'm sorry if this comes off rude. That's not my intention, but I've notice many people on here aren't interested in even getting to know someone unless they fit into a tiny little bit of criteria. Kind of defeats the purpose. Don't be afraid to bend a little bit. You might be surprised.
A little about me....I'm single (obviously) and have never been married with no kids. I'm stable, active and outgoing. I have a career, a car and my own place so you won't find me living in my parents basement. Friends are important to me and I think they would tell you that I'm loyal, fun to be around with a sense of humor and someone they can count on. I have an adventurous side and really enjoy travel and exploring new places, trying new things. When the weather is nice I like the outdoors, such as going for a hike or hitting the beach. I'm a fan of most all sports and enjoy seeing live games as well as on TV. I like to stay active and I workout about 5 days a week normally. I believe appearance is important but not THE most important thing. Not only can you find me "out on the town" or with friends but you can also find me at home on the couch watching some of my favorite TV shows, watching a movie or listening to a variety of music. I know what relationships are all about and how to treat a girl. I'm ready to settle down and build something we can both enjoy.
What I'm looking for....Someone looking to settle into a long term relationship if that's where it's headed. Cheaters/liars need not apply. You should be fun and outgoing but not need to be at the bar or at a party every other night. You should enjoy the quiet times too. Some common interests would certainly help any relationship, but aren't a deal breaker since I enjoy trying new things and hopefully you are open to new things too. You should care about your appearance, but not to the point of being vain. I'm happy with someone who can pull off sweatpants as well as a dress. I'd love to find someone who's very affectionate without being clingy. I enjoy being close with the person I'm with. Honesty, sense of humor and being able to communicate would be found near the top of my list. Bonus points if you enjoy travel, sports/sporting events, and can cook something other than grilled cheese. LOL.
Like everyone else on here I'm trying something different than the bar scene or bad set-ups by friends. Like everyone else on here I've entered certain "parameters" for my ideal person (ie 18-45, within 25 miles), but your age, distance, career, etc won't be deciding factors if we're both interested in getting to know each other. I don't believe in narrowing my search so much that I'm left with no one that fits the criteria. So, if you like what you see and read and think you're what I'm looking for (and vice versa), then please get in touch. I realize not everyone has email access on here, so wink if you have to. There's more to each of us than what we put in a few paragraphs on a match.com profile. Lets find out what that is.
