Hi! Hello! Hola! My name is TJ and I'm a total catch :) First and foremost, I am a gentleman and know how to treat a woman. I am a goal-oriented individual with a unique intellect and entrepreneurial spirit. I recently took a break from school to fulfill a lifelong dream to join the Army (Reserve) which has been one of the most rewarding decisions of my life. Prior to that, I was studying to get two bachelor's degrees--one in Political Science and the other in Marketing. I have my own company that specializes in small business development and low-cost, effective marketing. I also coach high school speech and debate which has been an absolutely amazing experience--seeing my kiddos develop their skills and grow as people is so rewarding; I love it!
If there is one word I would use to describe myself, it would be 'eclectic'. I refuse to see the world in black and white; the gray area in between is far more colorful. I like all types of music...You would never be able to predict what might come on my stereo--could be ACDC, 50 Cent, Mozart--or pretty much anything and everything in between. I love all kinds of food, especially from different cultures, in particular Sushi and Arabic food. I love sports, especially COLLEGE FOOTBALL!! But I also have my nerdy side--I'm a Star Wars fan and sci-fi nerd, deal with it lol. I'm open to try new things and would expect my significant other to be open as well. Where's the fun in getting stuck in a rut??
I'm the kind of guy that can turn just about anything into fun. I almost always have a smile on my face and am constantly making an effort to get other people to smile as well, especially those people that clearly don't want to. When I can get a cranky person to smile, my day is complete. If you get jealous easily, we won't work out--I make a habit of flirting with 80 year old women in the grocery line just to get them to laugh and brighten their day.
As I said earlier, the most important thing to know about me is that I'm a gentleman. I will hold your door, pull out your chair, lend you an elbow to hold while walking, help your grandmother cross the street, etc. It's an all too familiar cliche' when women say that they want a good guy, but then end up dating d-bags who boss them around and don't let them out of their sight or hang out with their friends or whatever. If that's the kind of relationship you're content with, I wish you the best, but that's not my style. I'm looking for a woman who appreciates a romantic, courteous, but strong and confident man.
