Hi, my name is Nick, and thanks for checking me out!
So wow...as if dating wasn't hard enough, it's even harder to look attractive on paper! Here goes, Match Review folks, be kind.
About me. I'm a guy. I look, act, smell, think, and behave like a guy. Surprised? Of course not, but what WILL surprise you is how normal I am. How respectful I am. How hard working, witty and "emotionally available" I am. Just to name a few. And so this is typically what separates the "guy you keep wishing you wouldn't keep meeting" from the "man you want to call 'yours' and take to meet mom". Sound about right?
So really, who am I? Well first of all, all that stuff up above you just read about and hopefully like - credit to the p's. They worked hard to make sure I turned out alright and in so many ways. I've got all that "gentleman" stuff down PAT, including the door opening and walking curbside...and if you don't know what that means, then you SHOULD. =) I've only had one set, but I'm pretty sure I really do have the best parents anybody could ask for (they're still together after 35yrs), and 3 of the best brothers (even an identical twin). Yes, mom is a saint. My family is very close, and they get much of the credit for the person I am today. So obviously family is important to me, and hopefully yours is too. Bonus points if you're an only child who actually knows how to "share", my experience so far has demonstrated that those folks tend to not know how to play nice (no offense if you are, I'm sure I've just had bad luck). =)
Other points worth noting: I can wiggle my ears, say the alphabet faster backwards than you can say it A-Z, and I'm also very good with my hands! And to keep the Match Approval Committee satisfied here, I'm talking about being handy around the house. ;)
So why am I still single? 3 reasons: 1) I see what my parents have and I want that. So I won't settle. 2) I've been in the wrong places at the wrong times, because there are TONS of great women out there, finding "you" is the tough part. 3) I currently live in suburbia (Naperville), but am in the process of selling my home and relocating back to the City (the market can't cooperate quickly enough!). Aside from that, I have great friends, family and coworkers who I SWEAR don't know me at all, because their attempts at fixing me up thus far have not worked out at all. What on earth were they thinking?? And forget the bar setting. So for now I'll try my luck at the virtual dating - I know a few people who tried Match and were successful, so I'm keeping an open mind!
After being on here for a bit, I've learned quite a bit. Your profile is YOUR first opportunity to make good first impression. My photos are all recent, and they all depict "me". So I will ask the same of you! And please be sure to use your OWN photos, there are some very simply online search techniques that can help determine if they're not - this should be common knowledge by now, I would think.
If you like what you read and see, don't be shy! Send me a message, life's too short. Here's to making a match in 2013! :)
