Hooo-kay, not really sure what to say here, selling myself has never really been my strong-suit, but I figured I’d go with brutal honesty and see what happens:
I know I’m supposed to tell you that I’m laid back, adventurous, and love to travel. But, honestly, I’m a little high-strung, somewhat anxious, and cautiously adventurous. I love to get out and explore downtown or the country, to get in the car with no real destination in mind and drive just to see where I end up but at the same time I also love playing video games and cards with my buddies, having bad movie marathon nights, spending an evening watching Community, Parks and Rec, and The Office, and taking a weekend just to lounge around the house, go for a hike, and spend it with my dog and people I care about.
I guess what I’m trying to say is: I like a little adventure, I like a little travel, but it’s not my life. It’s a garnish, not the entree.
I’m geeky too. Not the painful, never leaves the house geeky, but I do like Star Wars, Magic the Gathering, Guild Wars 2, my PS3, Highlander, Buffy, Angel, Firefly, dinosaurs, zombies (ZOMBIE DINOSAURS!), bad board games, good board games, Dr. Horrible, Dungeons and Dragons, and I’m even a little embarrassed to say it, but I’ve LARPed once or twice too. I strive to strike a balance between these things and maintaining a healthy, adult life and I think I do a pretty good job. But if I had to pick between watching a drama or Adventure Time, I’m going to pick Adventure Time.
Otherwise I’m a hard worker, I pay my bills on time, I love to laugh; I try never to take life too seriously, and I’m slowly bordering on being responsible. I still have no idea what a ROTH-IRA is though and I wish people at work would stop asking me if I have one.
What I’m looking for in a person:
I’m looking for someone genuine who likes to laugh, wants to share both the ups and downs of life, and is stable first and foremost. I’ve dated my share of “crazy girls,” “drama mamas”, and “princesses” and I’m really not looking to go there again. Ideally I’d want a partnership – I don’t expect anyone to carry my weight alone and I don’t want to carry someone else’s but I’d be perfectly happy sharing the burden.
Someone who lives healthy is also a must. Over the past six years I’ve lost 135 pounds (and still losing!) and I’ve come to LOVE to be active. I want a hiking partner, I want someone to help encourage me to start running more, I want to find someone whose idea of a good time is putting on a pair of sneakers and getting lost. Eating healthy is also important. It’s so much easier to “stay on the wagon” when the people you’re hanging out with don’t want to continually drag you to KFC for a Double Downs, Mountain Dew, and a heaping side of regret and shame.
I also like ‘em geeky.
If you’ve made it through all this and want to chat or you’d like to join me in flogging Fox News anchors with a sack of oranges you should drop me a line.
I’m pretty awesome.
And humble. Goodness gracious.
