Allow me to introduce myself, my friends call me A.J. (I have an ongoing bet that if you can guess my real name in three or less guesses, I buy you a bottle of your favorite drink.) Most people describe me as a pretty down to earth guy, very reliable and extremely loyal. I've on more than one occasion given the shirt off my back and all the cash in my wallet to a friend in need. I come from a large family that shared everything, and was raised to treat others as you would want to be treated. My father taught me the value of hard work and having goals in life. I'm currently serving in the military for a few reasons: 1. I believe that we have to earn our freedom as a people. 2. I want to see the world and experience different cultures. 3. I want to further my education to reach my life goals. My goal once my term is up is to become an publication editor with the ultimate goal of writing my own works.
When it comes to having a good time I'm pretty much a jack of all trades. I can literally have a good time doing just about anything, though my favorite things are more of the outdoorsy activities. I really enjoy hiking (I recently just did my first high altitude hike, it's an amazing challenge!), biking, spending time at the beach throwing frisbee with friends, rock climbing, and etc. Being originally from the midwest I also enjoy hanging out by a fire, having a beer, and playing guitar and singing. I have an appreciation for the arts, enjoy going to museums and concerts, and enjoy writing my own music.
When it comes to why I joined Match, I fall into the same category as most. I'm at that age where I'm looking for something with more depth to it. The bar scene is fun and all but that's all it is, a scene, here one second, gone the next. So if you're interested in getting to know one another, send me a wink or a message, I like meeting new people so there's nothing to be afraid of.
"When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life." -John Lennon
