I believe strongly in 2 sayings about character. Character is doing the right thing when nobody's looking. And... You can easily judge the character of a man by how he treats those who can do nothing for him.
I try to live by these ideals and I'll only be with someone who thinks similarly.
About me: I enjoy reading self help books and then barely applying anything I've learned to my life. I like heavily investing $ into equipment for new hobbies, and then only doing the activity once. As a rule I write multiple to do lists on my iPhone notebook app and then refuse to look at said list because I don't want to be reminded of everything I didn't get done.
I'm just an American white boy of Italian decent from South Jersey - no, not "Jersey Shore", loyal, down to earth, honest, sarcastic, enjoy travelling and the quiet simple things in life, laid back but no pushover, big heart. Love a crying laugh, kind of a big softy, a bit of a hopeless romantic, and slightly geeky (I dig lots of movies, games, gadgets, etc.).
I look younger than my age. Still not sure how I feel about that. Hah. I guess its good because I usually prefer friends who are younger anyway. I'm affectionate and I like a girl who likes to be close and appreciates touch. Also, I believe the whole point to a relationship is intimacy, so if you have a fear of it (and some girls can't admit they do) then we won't work - Sorry, I'm just not up for waiting for years of therapy to kick in at this point.
Living in Las Vegas about 2 years now, I like this city, but dating has been pretty bad here. I currently work on the strip. Industry people aren't typically the deepest, so I thought I'd take a shot online. Unfortunately I work late hours and my days off limit me so it's hard for me to meet people with regular jobs and normal hours. I'm working on getting out for something more normal.
I'm an optimist, and I try to stay healthy, in shape, and motivated. Good company goes a long way, I can have fun doing just about anything with the right person. I'm easy-going and don't sweat the small stuff, and I need the same in a significant other. I bring no drama or baggage to the table.. Negative people will bring you down, so stay away from me! :)
For fun, try this to know more about yourself & let me know your results...
A good friend told me about this theory of "5 Languages of Love" and how different people need different things from a significant other. According to this theory, of these five needs, if the ones you prioritize are the same as that of the person you are with, then your chances of the relationship working out in the long run are just way higher. So this friend tells me she knows a couple who have the same exact needs and their relationship takes hardly any work and it's just super easy even after years. So I bought into the idea and I took the quiz. Do a search for "Take the Love Language Quiz" and once you answer the questions honestly, tell me your results!
Here are my results from the quiz:
9 - Words of Affirmation
9 - Physical Touch
7 - Quality Time
4 - Acts of Service
1 - Receiving Gifts
