I have always enjoyed good company and deep conversations. Whether someone is a friend or something more I like to know what’s on their mind and what is important to them. I like to listen and I'm not shy about sharing my thoughts if someone is interested. I have always had a large group of friends. I tend to be friends with people who are honest and open. That's the kind of connection I want to have with someone I'm dating as well. I like people who are open minded, not easily offended, and treat other well.
-I'm very laid back and easy going. Arguing isn’t my style.
-When people invite me out I’m more interested to know who is coming than where we’re going.
-I’m a Chemical Engineer, but I promise I won’t tell you about pipes or chemicals unless you ask.
-I like “Bones” and have been known to wear striped socks and a belt buckle that says “Cocky”.
-I own a house in Wickliffe; two of my friends currently live with me.
-I don’t follow any sport but I don’t mind going to a game once or twice a year.
-If you noticed the band picture you should know that we played a total of 8 songs in my basement. It was a lot of fun for a while but I’m no musician. I just liked the picture.
-If you don’t like to cuddle and kiss, this probably isn’t going to work out.
-I like to go places. This year I have been to Scottsdale AZ, Las Vegas NV, Washington DC, Baltimore MD, Savannah GA, and Asheville NC. I'm still hoping to go to TX in December.
THOUGHTS ON RELATIONSHIPS:
I know I'm supposed to say what I'm looking for here, but that's easier said than done. I usually don’t know until I meet the person. In the past, some of the people I have cared for the most were surprises. They were not the type of people I would have expected, but ended up working really well. So I like to keep an open mind.
The Early Stages:
I want to enjoy the experience of meeting someone new. I don’t think there should be any expectations; just start talking and see what happens! I’m always interested in trying new restaurants, bars, or anywhere else she likes. I like it when someone wants to show me some of their favorite places. I think it’s a good way to get to know someone. Once we’re comfortable I would want her to meet some of my friends and I would be happy to meet some of hers. I’m a talker, I like to think I’m funny, and I like to listen. I want to get to know someone new and learn what’s important to them. To sum it up, in the beginning I think dating should be fun and low pressure.
Long Term Relationships:
When I’m dating someone long term I want to be involved in her life and I want her to be involved in mine. I want to share the good times and the less good times. I want her to know my friends and family. I always want her to feel welcome. I think we should be able to talk about any topic without fear of judgment. I’m not a fan of secrets. I want her to be the person I always want to have with me no matter what the occasion. That being said I don’t think you should ever be someone’s entire world. I think it is good for both people to maintain their own friends and interests. I don’t want either of us to lose the people we were close to before we met. I never want to be that guy that causes my girlfriend to lose all her friends.
If you have any questions, just ask me. If you have a lot of questions, that's even better.
