Hey! Thanks for stopping by!
I am a humble person who has learned that one cannot be defined by a career choice and the type of car you own(Yes ladies, I have been steadily employed all my life, and I do have a car...haha). I would rather be defined by my appreciation for family, my passions and my philosophical views.
I own a small martial arts school in Cincinnati...Fusion MMA. During the evening I run my school, and during the day I punch the 8-5 grind clock as a process engineer.
My two daughters are 20 and 14. I do not spend as much time with them as I use to, due to not being able to hold their attention as well as their friends.. lol. I have a small immediate family, but my fam extends much further, as my students are close to me. Home is where the heart is.
I love tattoos and have 9. I will get more. If tattoos are a turn off, you should probably move on to the next profile. I love a tattooed woman, but certainly not necessary.
I am not real big on mainstream sports. I do not make it a point to go to Reds or Bengal games, although I am not opposed to it, and do not watch many sports on TV.(it would seem this may limit my scope of potentials since half of the women on here have a pic of themselves with a bengals jersey or hat, while tailgating). The one sport I do enjoy is Mixed Martial Arts(MMA)...or to some, UFC or cage fighting. I enjoy watching documentary style television and like to learn new things.
It would be nice to meet someone that enjoys the outdoors, exercise, and is not opposed to doing physical things together like hiking, biking and more. Although, they can't be a health nut, or too uptight, as I do enjoy a couple drinks in the evening as I wind down.
My ideal match will be an affectionate person with a strong sense of passion. I do not click well with people that are not affectionate. I click well with expressive people who are not shy about sharing their feelings. If you cannot articulate your thoughts well verbally, have a hard time expressing emotion, or you 'always' use text messaging, I prefer you try another person. ;) Texting is ok, but not as the sole means of communicating matters of the heart, and other important discussions.
I am a Libra, and I am mostly a right brainer. I enjoy deep conversation, and philosophy. I love to be in the company of someone who also enjoys discussing things other than reality TV and who is ahead on American Idol.
I have a dog name Ollie. He is a beagle mix, and my best buddy. If you don't like dogs, or when you meet them you act like they might give you a disease, I am not a good match for you.
I am looking for dating at first, and don't want to rush things, however I am open to long term relationships if I meet the right person. It all starts with dating, right? ;)
Please know it is important to for anyone who may be interested in me, that I don't want to email and text for 'DAYS' before talking to you, or meeting you in person. Yes, a couple emails, and possibly some texting to break the ice, is great for initial contact and communication, but we must meet to determine if there is a spark. You can really fall for someone's profile, how they sound on the phone, and what they have to say, however you don't truly know if there is a connection until you meet in person. I simply don't want to waste my time or anyone elses. The sooner we can meet to guage interest/connection the better. Once that is established, then talking and texting is wide open. This may not be what some women are comfortable with, but I know what I thrive in.
Oh.. and I find it terribly rude when someone reaches out with a long message with a bunch of questions, and when I respond with a long message in kind, I don't get a response. I believe in treating people with common courtesy. I hope you do too!
Well, If you wanna know more.... hit me up
