Well, hello there. I’ve decided to rethink this whole online dating thing. While odd and exciting in one breath, it’s as unpredictable as the weather (well, not CA weather!). I’ve done the well explained, this is me profile. It’s produced some interesting people. However, I’m always entertained by the short and sweet (figuratively and literally). So here goes for the ones who got through school on Cliffs Notes.
-Just moved here from MN to CA to work at my company HQ in the last year. I’ve been with this company for 10 years so I know the area well enough to be dangerous but can’t wait to explore more.
-I don’t lack confidence but know the line between confidence and arrogance. Always know I’m not the smartest guy in the room, and have complete respect for people who were given the gift of a big brain. However, I’ll take intelligence over intellect any day.
-Like most guys, sports are part of my life. It gives me the competitive edge I need when my career can’t fulfill. Love to golf, it’s an addiction. I’ll watch just about anything (especially if we can have a beer doing it). I find time to work out regularly and anything I can do to shake up that routine, I’m in. Please don’t misinterpret that as I’m going sky diving with you. While some of you have an adrenaline issue, I don’t. I have my thrills like anyone, but dropping to the ground from 20,000 feet waiting for a handkerchief to open is for the birds.
-Eating is just awesome. I love to do it and love to experience new things (even if I’m doing the cooking). I was blessed with good genes and a dedication to a healthy lifestyle. Don’t interpret that as salads and fish. I drink beer, eat food I shouldn’t, but like most things, nothing will kill you in moderation.
-My glass is always half full (with anything red preferably!), even on the crappy days. You won’t understand that until you meet me and get to know me, and then it is just obvious why my glass is that way. And don't plan to "figure" that out right away. You'll know I'm into you when that process happens.
-Wicked sense of humor. Overly sarcastic. Will tell an inappropriate joke at the appropriate time. Always love to battle wits with people. I win way more than I lose. Bad habit of quoting movies far too often. Have a potty mouth but do my best to watch it around women and children (not in that order).
-Travel is the best way to grow and realize you are a speck on this planet. I’ve hit some places you will never see but each of those places was a better experience because of the people I was with. You’ll forget certain things about a trip but you’ll never forget who was there with you. Fact.
-I have a 14 year old Golden Retriever named Norman. Simply put, you must appreciate a dog’s endless pursuit of your unconditional love. Men and dogs are really the same. Except dogs are easier to train.
-So much more, but if you’re still reading, you’ll have to take the plunge to find out the really good stuff!
