I’ve always thought it was a little pretentious to write about oneself; but here it goes! I'm a veteran of the Marine Corps, infantry. It was an awesome experience, and I’m thankful to be blessed with such great memories. I was stationed in southern California; where the surfboard/stuck-up women ratio is approximately 1:1. So I’ll claim my match.com experience a victory, if I’m fortunate enough to meet some down to earth, intelligent (note: Orange county girls stop reading), worthwhile women.
I’m a student at Hamline, majoring in Legal Studies. I have a strong earnestness in law, so there will be more school after Hamline most likely. I work part-time as well. So I stay fairly busy, but I’ve always felt balance is important in life. I always make time for friends, family and myself. Working out and reading are two passions I don’t see myself parting from anytime soon. Hockey is the best sport, and sarcasm is usually the best kind of humor. I’m generally not a huge fan of the typical bar scene. Because I guess you could say, I'm unimpressed by the girl that's impressed by a pickup line. I would much rather reap the benefits of applying myself at my talents, than celebrate nothing every weekend. But of course, there's nothing wrong with having a night out occasionally! My friends describe me as "genuine." And oh, yes.. I really hate yo-yos. (If you got that, that's an automatic 5 points).
I would describe my ideal “match” as someone who's down to earth, genuine, empathetic, intelligent, active- fit people strike my as generally happier, and must be willing to tolerate the occasional old-school Simpsons quote. If you fit all these without drama, all the better! Education is important- an insatiable love of learning is more important than a degree to me, and of course a family oriented girl. I consider myself ambitious and goal oriented, so she should have aspirations of her own, while still keeping an affable and down to earth attitude. I’m looking for someone to supplement, not supplant me. I can be picky; I’d rather be single, than be with someone just for the sake being in a relationship. I consider communication to be very important as well; if you're one of those girls that breaks up with a guy by giving them the cold shoulder, you probably shouldn't waste your time.
If I come out with just a friend out of this it'll be worth it; so don't hesitate!
P.S. Willing to lie about where we met.
