About me: I imagine most probably feel as weird about this part as I do, so I'm just going to ramble on for a little bit here and hope that works out. So, who am I? I'm that guy you saw wandering up and down the aisles at the grocery store at 11:00 p.m. Ya, the one with the confused look on his face who circled the store five times trying to find a particular item. I was the one who you made eye contact with at the bar/store/mall/whatever. You held eye contact for a bit and maybe smiled, but this was quickly followed by me copping out with a quick judgment that justified not approaching you because I can be shy sometimes, or maybe my ride was leaving. I was that dude you had the interesting conversation with over dinner and drinks with mutual friends. We really connected, I know, but I had a girlfriend at the time, and well... bummer. Do you remember that guy who sat two seats to the right of you in your poly sci class? The one who made all of the comments to which the professor feigned annoyance, but subtly appreciated? Me again.
Regarding surface level stuff, I'm new-ish to SD. I've been here about 2 years now. It took me a while to get used to being down here, but it's finally starting to feel like home. I work pretty long hours for a marketing company and I recently bought a condo that I'm completely rehab-ing almost on my own. Between that, the trips back home on the weekends (Chino), and moving 3 times over the past year, weddings/bachelor parties/birthdays, and getting out and about when I can down here, I've been pretty busy. Probably why I'm on here :) Tough to get out there and meet new people when I spend so much time working/on the road/at Home Depot. But don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining, being busy working toward something is better than not having anything going on.
A little bit more about me is that I grew up in a rural/urban environment. I say that as my family had horse property within a city in Chino. I've also lived in a rural-ish part of Texas on a horse ranch and went to college in a rougher urban environment (Pomona). I mention this as I believe being "well-rounded" is an important trait of mine, and I think that the lifestyle dictated within each of these very different settings played a large role in that. What else... I'm pretty analytical, I'm decent with numbers (and hopefully writing), laidback in my free time, ambitious with work/school, curious by nature, I like to make people laugh, I like games (not really video gamer, though I'll pick it up once in a while)... not really sure what else to put here so I'll stop rambling about me. Well, other than that I'm a pretty honest and genuine person. But I guess that only goes so far until proven, right?
Oh yeah, I'm also really good at killing spiders. I can also wield a hammer and a tire iron like nobody's business. Also, I REALLY enjoy games. Dominoes, Hearts, Spades, Casino, board games, Speed.... all that stuff. I'm perfectly happy with splitting a bottle of wine and playing a game with awesome people on a weekend night.
Who I'm looking for: Smart, funny, attractive, and honest person. -- What the hell else am I supposed to put here? I guess the only thing specifically that I would say is that I enjoy being with women who I have an initial physical attraction to, but then I find that there is more beneath the surface. --- See? Even that sounds dumb. One could copy-and-paste that into any profile. I guess just honesty and justifiable confidence would be great, along with the ability to spell :) Maybe being creative too? Also, perhaps liking to joke around... Mind like a diamond, short skirt, long jacket, cuts through the red tape, all that good stuff.
By the way, has anyone been to one of these Stir Events? Are they... weird?
