H! I'm going to tell the truth and let you all know that I had my doubts about this whole match.com and online dating thing and actually made fun of my good friend for months for being such a fan of it. He landed a lot of dates and actually found a really nice girl and I was still skeptical. Then I decided at the new year that I would try something different, something new, and out of my comfort zone (and everything I believe in)...so here I am!! LOL. As for talking about myself, I usually don't have a problem with that because I talk for a living and actually motivate and educate others therefore I have to use alot of my personal stories to do so. I wouldnt consider myself "the world's morst interesting man" but I definitely have not lived a normal life and have a few good stories for you if we really get to know eachother. I'm laid back, very positive, somewhat intelligent, a good converationalist, love sports, and I am well-traveled although I'd would love to see most of the world very soon and would literally hop on a plane with you anywhere if you asked and gave me two months' advanced notice. I frustrate people because I'm not a planner and very spontaneous, I'm sarcastic as hell, and I do love to poke fun at people (a sign that I like you) but all in good fun. I've been told I have a tough exterior but its all an act because I have a huge heart...and I think thats funny but true. I'm loyal and a hopeless romantic (which feels weird to admit as I write this profile) and I am looking for something real with a wonderful woman. I honestly have focused on my education and career for a very long time and as a late bloomer in the dating game, I'm finally in a place where I can focus 100% on finding someone to spend time with, experince things with, and give my full attention to (except when ESPN is on). Did I also mention that I've always wanted to be a comedian? LOL. As for qualities in a woman that I'm looking for, I am extremely attracitve to strong, outgoing, independent intelligent women.who i can converse with for hours and talk about anything and everything. I'm also a sucker for a gorgeous smile! Anyways, I am curious to see how many "likes" or "winks" or "emails" i get with this very long description of myself but I am honestly looking forward to meeting and getting to know (via email) all the very interesting women in the world that just so happens to be single and looking to match.com for love!!! Good luck to us all and hope to hear from you soon!
