What to write here? I hate this part, having to try and sell myself via some website. You just cant really tell wether or not your gonna have a connection with someone through some essay about themselves. There is a chemistry that happens in person and thats the only way you really know. This is what it is though, so here I go.
I am a laid back guy who loves hanging out with family and friends. I have 3 beautifull kids (ages 11-15, 2girls 1 boy) that I love to death and have raised myself for the last 8 years. I recently moved back to Denver from the Phoenix area to pursue a second degree in Petroleum Engineering at the School of Mines. Ive been through a few things in life (a male just doesn't get custody under normal circumstances) all of which have made me stronger. I dont take things too seriously, I laugh at myself and am nearly impossible to offend. I am basically always happy and rarely, if ever, get depressed. Regardless of the trials, life is great and should be enjoyed. I love sports, especially football (played collegiately and then coached junior college for ten years). I love to sit back and cuddle up to a rented movie as well. I also tend to have a little wild side. I am very analytical (hence a degree in Chemistry) but fairly creative at the same time. I love classic rock, and some of the best times Ive ever had have been watching some cover band play at a local club or bar. Like I mentioned, I played college football, but am also a bit nerdy at the same time (secretly collected Star Wars figures for years -very dorky, I know). I love action movies and historical movies, especially the tv series like Rome, Spartacus and The Tudors. Obviously a big Star Wars fan as well. I do enjoy some "chic flix" too, i.e. 27 dresses, How to lose a guy.., and Serendipity (a favorite). While I think Im too practical to believe in soul mates and fate and all that, there must be a part of me that wants it to be real. I am an extremely loyal person as well. I have little tolerance for cheaters, being faithful is a pretty easy thing to do. So there it is, Im smart, attractive, loyal, athletic, dorky, and at least partly a romantic.
Its hard to say what I am looking for in particular because I enjoy lots of different types of people. The best thing might be to say what I dont want. Like everyone else, Im not interested in drama, and I dont do well with control freaks. I like people who are real (no fakers) and comfortable in their own skin. I just don't understand why someone would want to exaggerate or lie about who they are or what they do. Im not arrogant, but I do like myself, as Terrell Owens once said "I love me some me" (kidding). Anyways, I guess Im just looking for some connection that works, some Chemistry, someone that makes me a little nervous and gives me butterflies. And while Im not a Shallow Hal, there does have to be a physical attraction there for me.
