Yep, it's come to this. I'm Ryan, and I'm on match.com. Funny thing is, if you're reading this you are too. I won't tell if you won't. If we fall madly in love, we'll make up a story of how we met that is much more heroic and romantic than "We digitally winked at each other, and we just knew."
**If you don't have time to date and get to know someone you're interested in, please move on. I'm as busy as anyone, but I'll make time for the right person. If you are one of those "it's always something" people that plans 2nd dates two weeks out or won't make hard plans, I'm not interested.**
If you don't want to read what follows and just want to "wink" or email based on the fact you think I'm handsome and don't sound like a total creep, I'm good with that. I'm a realist and know people are busy. If you'd like to know a little more about my inner workings, I encourage you to read on. Don't be shallow, nobody likes a quitter and there is a prize at the end.
I have a challenging work schedule. As a 911 Dispatcher I work goofy days and hours, which can make dating difficult at times for me. Anyone wanting to become a serious part of my life has to understand this. I'll make time for you if you make time for me, however difficult it may be. I wish I worked 9-5 but I don't, such is life.
I'd love to find someone interested in being active, but I'm not a zealot. I follow the Paleo Diet (80/20) and also Crossfit regularly. My diet and training are very important to me, but again I'm not a fanatic. I still love things like pizza, burgers, beer, Mountain Dew, Ice Cream, and other such food orgies, but don't make a habit of them. I used to be fat, I know how to eat and have a good time. I believe that most of what ails us physically and mentally can be solved with clean eating, lifting heavy things, and feeling like your heart will explode from your chest at least twice a week.
I don't expect you to be a "10", lord knows I'm not, but I want someone who values their health and is going to work (hopefully with me?) to keep it up. If that makes me shallow, so be it. I want someone who wants to be attracted to one another 10 years, 20 years from now. Attraction is important to me. If you're going to be committed to someone, you've gotta want to jump each other's bones pretty regularly. That's not unreasonable is it?
I'm extremely happy with my current station in life. I don't need a relationship to be happy, but no man is an island either. . In general terms I'm looking for someone who is attractive, athletic, curious, dynamic, thoughtful, and responsible. I'd rather not deal with ex and and/or family drama. Life is hard enough without putting up with any unnecessary BS.
Mean what you say, honor your commitments, give of yourself to others, chase your dreams and goals. That's what I want from you.
**Prize** You now know significantly more about me than you did 5 minutes ago. Winner?? You. (Told you there was a prize)
