So this is your first impression of me. No pressure there! I'm on here just as most of you are. I'm tired of the bar scene and apparently I can't trust my friends or family to set me up with a normal or sane women, so I figured I'd give this a try and see what happens. I'm looking for a friendship to relationship type of situation. Now I have been around the block a couple of times and I'm a guy, so I had to ask for directions. That doesn't mean that I'm an old dog. I can learn new tricks and am still a puppy at heart. I'm new to this online dating stuff so it's hard for me to try and describe myself.
I guess if you were to ask my friends and family they would tell you that I'm very sarcastic and kind of feisty. I love to laugh so a sense of humor is a must. You need to be able to dish it out as well as take it!
I'm not black, I'm not white, I'm tan! I was adopted by a couple of missionaries from the Midwest. That's why I am a little bit of a redneck even though my neck is tan. I grew up in the suburbs of Northern VA, so I have a little bit of a northern accent. I've been playing sports and soccer since I was just a little pain in the ass. Now I still play and am just a bigger pain in the ass! I went into the Marines out of high school and got shipped all over the US and the world. Some good, some not so good. It is what it is. I went to school on the west coast before I ended up in the sunshine state so I could work on my tan. I am a little weird and a bit of a nerd, but I'm a lot of fun. I'm anything but normal, so why would my job be? I do work in forensics and do weird stuff that you don't want to know about. Trust me. You can see that I also have a couple of weird side jobs too. In this economy it's nice to be employed and be able to put gas in my damn gas guzzling SUV. My job is part of my life, but not my whole life. I still play several sports and hangout every chance I get. I have traveled all around the world and eaten things that I won't mention! I have served meals at homeless shelters and have eaten meals with royalty. I clean up well, but prefer shorts and t-shirts. I have climbed a few mountains and run in a few marathons. I have scuba dived in the abyss where you couldn't see the bottom of the ocean and jumped out of perfectly good airplanes. I have done a lot, but there is so much more that I want to do. Just because you are alive doesn't mean you are living.
I'd like to find someone who is also adventurous, but has a mello side too. I'm extroverted and like to get out there and meet all kinds of people and experience new things. I'm literate and can hold an intellectual conversation, but I like to be a goof sometimes and act like a kid too. Please don't get offended or embarrassed. Either you're compatible and there's a spark or there isn't. That's part of life. If finding love was easy, then it wouldn't be worth it.
Please don't judge me by my face, by my religion, or my race.
Please don't laugh at what I wear, or how I look, or do my hair.
Please look a little deeper, way down deep inside.
Although you may not see it, I have a lot to hide.
Behind my clothes the secrets lie, behind my smile, I softly cry.
Please look a little deeper, and maybe you will see.
The lonely little boy that lives inside of me.
Please listen carefully to him, he'll show that she is insecure.
Please try to be a friend to him, and show him that you care.
Please just get to know him, and maybe you will see.
That if you just look deep enough, you'll find the real me.
