My interests include camping, canoeing/kayaking, hiking, playing cards/games, movies, playing with Nerf guns (usually if there's a small child around), building forts in the living room (again, with a youngster, or fun-loving chick), working out and going to the gym, drinking coffee, visiting the beach (no easy task in this state), amusement parks, playing softball, football and any other sports that break out in the back yard. I'm probably the best euchre player ever born, and I generally dominate at Words with Friends.
I'm a former Guinness Book of World Records record holder, and I have played semi-pro football.
Bars can be fun if there's live music and good atmosphere, but I hardly ever get drunk.
Recently, I've been thinking it would be neat to take a cross country train trip. That's one mode of transportation I've never tried.
There's a Johnny Cash poster above my bed. I like blues music. The best concert I've been to was Green Day. I'd cut off one of my fingers if Kenny Chesney promised to never record another song.
I've never been convicted of a felony (or charged with one), but I watch true crime shows and think "I could definitely pull off a bank robbery." I'm also certain I could break out of a jail.
I'm a sportswriter by trade, but I don't live sports 24/7. It's a great job, but I don't have to be stuck to the couch every weekend watching a game. I'm just as happy getting out and doing something with a fun person. To me, the company I'm with is more important than the activity.
Religion isn't my thing, but I respect other people's beliefs.
I've been accused of being silly at time times. But, I'm not TOTALLY irresponsible. I've only had three jobs in the past 16 years, and it each job change was by my choice. I own a home and, so far, the bank hasn't tried to take it away from me.
I have a daughter that lives with her mother. My daughter and I have a good relationship. She's pretty much an adult now, so she's definitely not in need of a mother figure or anything like that.
Compatibility isn't an exact science, but ideally, this is you: Not materialistic. Halfway between a girly-girl and a tomboy. A girl that has cute fingernails and painted toes and smells girly, but can still play a touch football game and not freak out if they get muddy is ideal. Smart. In possession of a full set of teeth. With children is fine, as long as it's not like 6 kids by 4 different fathers. Also, not self-centered. If we're on our fifth text conversation and you haven't asked a single thing about my job, family, interests, etc., you might be stuck on yourself. No offense.
So, I guess that's enough for now. Peace out homie.
Oh, new rule for the ladies: You are not allowed to post any more than one picture of your cat/dog/parakeet for every five pictures of you. I'm here to date you, theoretically, not Bubkus.
