Hello there. I'm Mike. The online dating gig is unfamiliar territory, so bare with me. Aside from a few military deployments, I've grown up in Indiana my entire life. It's not perfect, but it's home. And that's good enough for me. I'm the kind of person that likes to take advantage of any given situation. I like to make my days count, considering we have only so many of them. I live for the moment and balance my plan for the future while cherishing the memories of the past.
I have a passion for life. I always want to try new things, but I also fancy some activities and hobbies that I have learned to love over the years. One of the big ones is music. I love to listen to it, I love to talk about it, and I love to play it. I'm a rock and roller at heart that loves to play my guitars, and I'm trying to learn the piano and the drum set in hopes of one day making my own album for fun. Playing music is a blast, but if you've never played with another person, aka jamming, then you don't know what you're missing... and I will NEVER turn down a night of karaoke, so long as the playlist is NOT sub-par pop.
I also grew up with sports in my life, and I have yet to lose my passion for them. Specifically basketball and football. WARNING: Before I tell you my favorite teams, I only ask that you look at my choices with an open mind, because I will extend that same courtesy to you... unless you like Kentucky, USC, the Miami Heat, or the New England Patriots. lol. I'm just kidding. That being said, my teams are Notre Dame Football, Indiana Basketball, the Indianapolis Colts, and the Indiana Pacers.
When I'm not partaking in those hobbies, I'm working, finishing my bachelors degree, taking the dogs for a walk, working out, or spending time with family and friends. I also indulge in the occasional video game. Hey, everyone's got to have some sort of guilty pleasure.
I'm still kind of on edge with the online dating gig. But word of mouth has spread, so I thought I'd give it a shot. The only issue with online is you miss out on a lot of elements that can only be experience face to face. Elements like body language, the sound of a voice, or the invisible energy you feel when you and a person have chemistry. I'd much rather do that instead of using a keyboard.
My idea of a good date MUST involve three things: laughter, great conversation, and some kind of spontaneous fun. You can find someone who looks good on the outside, but looks will fade away some day. What's on the inside spawns those aforementioned activities. Anyway, I'd love to make this thing work. Feel free to get a hold of me.
