It's pretty simple really. I'm a guy who'd like to spend some good time with a good girl. I like bicycles, motorcycles, conspiracies, country music, rock, metal, running, cheeseburgers, pancakes, salads, Dave Chappelle, and saying things that make others say "What you talking about?!".
OK...maybe it's not THAT simple. This dating/love/relationship stuff is maybe a bit complicated.
I've been on and off dating sites for about 5 years now, but nothing's really panned out. Said f$^ it for a while. I'm now testing the waters again. I don't really have it in me to do the hookup thing, but I'm still jaded about the relationship thing. I'm a very guarded person too. This is a bit of a difficult situation. I like to believe that I'm not alone, in both senses.
So I'm telling myself that I have no expectations, but we know how that goes, right? If you suggested that I'm hoping this all works out like a romantic comedy, I'd likely agree, and give you the most genuine laugh-out-loud you've ever heard. That's a pretty good example of my sense of humor.
Most people would probably suggest that I spend too much time alone. While I value my alone time very much, I would probably have to agree.
Soooo...I suppose I'd like to spend some time with a woman that shares a mutual attraction that I can actually talk to. Someone that lightens me up, and maybe I her as well. If it turns into something more, then that would be super-swell, right? :)
I've often been asked if I'm stupid because I wouldn't lie to keep a woman interested. Some of these people are my "friends". They are not in these pictures. I really only have a few close friends, and I'd rather have it that way than to have many superficial acquaintances who don't appreciate and respect me for me. I don't think I would make a very good salesperson, but you never know.
If I had to choose one thing that I dislike the most, I would have to say it is insincerity. It can be (and most often is) as simple as asking someone how they are when you don't really want to know. It really is just that simple.
I'm also a bit of a grammar/spelling Nazi, but I usually just stuff it and secretly hate the offender. Did I say hate? I meant to say I feel sorry for people with inferior textual skills. :) If you are a fellow of mine, and find any errors in my profile, please do not restrain your wrath. You say you want a man to challenge you? I challenge you to find an errror in my profile. Bring it on. :P
I haven't had television service for maybe 2 years now? It seems to me that when I've actually quit something, I don't keep track of how long it's been. I admit that it is sort of a treat when I do have occasion to watch it though.
I don't have any tattoos. I've learned that people are constantly unfolding. I'd be covered in stuff that I'm not into anymore. I'm never the same as I used to be, and I'm thinking I should not just accept, but embrace it. How's that for some Zen?
If I'm reading a profile and I see canned phrases like "down-to-earth", "live, laugh, love", "live life to the fullest", or that you are driven and passionate, etc., I will likely roll my eyes and lose interest. But I have been reading these things on and off for 5 years now, and I've lost track of how many times I've rewritten my "about me", so... :P
Maybe I'll add some later if the mood strikes me. I should probably try this again after a few beers or something. Speaking of beers...I'm never sure how to list my drinking habits, mostly because it varies so much. I like the taste of beer,but I don't like being drunk so much. So right now I'm trying out the limited selection of N/A beers. It amuses me how readily people will offer up their strongly negative opinions about it. Even the people selling it to me. But I suppose I think some of the cars I work on are ridiculous. We're all hypocrites,right?
I had more to type, but I'm out of room. Boo-hoo for me (and you?). :(
