Ha, this thing is testing my patience. I wrote out an entirely revamped summary and somehow managed to not hit submit. So here we go one more time!
First, my name is Cody. I, unfortunately, had to renew for another six months--this is getting slightly embarrassing. I am going to make this a bit longer this time and a bit more personal, maybe that will do the trick?
Professionally speaking, I work downtown in commercial banking--specifically international treasury. It is rather challenging to explain in text so I will let the suspense build (insert sarcastic grin) and save the explanation for dinner or coffee. I can honestly say I love what I do--too much, honestly. I have worked very hard to accomplish what I have at my age and I do not plan on slowing down. I am due to graduate college next May (B.S. Finance)--I put work before school, luckily it paid off for me. In the nearer future, I am sitting for the CTP exam in December (bonus points are certainly available if you know what that is). I have yet to make a full decision on grad school and am teetering between a Finance MBA or law school--more to come there.
Now for the part everyone hates--the personal part. Work and school take up a large part of my time, but when I am not working at one of those two things I tinker around with others. I struggle with "relaxing" so I have to constantly be moving--it is a pain in the arse to be perfectly honest. I enjoy going out for drinks and/or dinner. I am also an avid music, TV, and movie person. I recently traded in my cable for Netflix and Amazon Instant Video--so far I am happy with it. I also enjoy traveling. I literally got back from short vacation to Mexico yesterday (as of 08/30). I am heading to the UK in October (for work)--it is my third time there; London is one of my favorite cities in the world.
As for what I am looking for--I want a best friend, a partner in crime, someone I can introduce to my parents, someone I get to come home to everyday, someone to just be there for me like I will be for them.
My ideal partner would:
*be successful (or working towards it)--you define this for yourself
*be sarcastic (or at least able to handle mine)
*be able to laugh--laughter is my outlet for nearly everything
*be cute/good looking--I find a wide range of guys fall into this category so do not let it be a deterrent
*take care of himself--both physically and mentally--that does not mean a gym rat or a model physique
Physical attraction is important, but lets all keep it in check. Please do not start or include in emails requests for "stats" or more pictures. It is ridiculous to think you can know what I look like based on photographs online. As for me physically--I truly am stocky (I do not hide behind that as a cover up like some do). I have a big chest, nice arms, a midsection that while it isn't a six pack, it isn't a gut either, a really cute arse, and nice legs--yes, that was me selling it! But I also have a huge head and I insist on keeping my hair short which my friends tell me doesn't help--hey, at least they're honest.
Well that is me in summary form (scary to think about the long version). Hopefully, you are interested and I can finally see some ROI on my Match.com costs. Oh, and as a final send off I'm a gay republican!
