Hello ladies and fishies, I've noticed that my profile I created for amusement so many years ago no longer reflects who I am. So I'll attempt to rectify the situation. However, this happens to be a particularly exciting time for me, since my life is in a state of flux. This year I've started a new job, moved twice, and meet a few great people. All the changes that I've experienced have let me understand that waiting for the perfect moment to find that special someone is not the strategy for my success. Life moves to fast for that these days, I'm just hoping to keep adapting to all the changes that occur and if there's someone flexible enough to come on this ride consider this your invitation to join me.
POF suggests that I talk about theses topics if I want to be successful, so here is some information about me that I don't expect to change:
1 Talk about your hobbies.
- I don't have much time for hobbies at the moment, but I've enjoyed participating in several entrepreneurial and civic events over the past few years and plan to resume those activities soon.
2 Talk about your goals and aspirations.
- Some of my goals right now are
first: excelling in my new career, which serves as a stepping stone for my 2nd goal:
second: home ownership (had a bit of a set back on the front recently, but revised my plan for the next 2 years)
third: Getting in the best shape of my life, for the purposes of my 4th goal:
fourth: Increasing the time I spend outdoors, particularly in the relatively untouched parts of the state that I'm close to now
fifth: Being part of a community service or mentor program where I can give something back, since I know I haven't gotten where I am on my own.
3 Talk about yourself and what makes you unique.
My DNA? My large ears make me a really good listener? I'm not some special snowflake, I'm more interested in where I'm going to be. I think my life has gotten boring so I'm changing things up and thinking strategically about what I do now. Maybe I'm boring because I work too much, but I know being broke won't make the world's most interesting man, so I'm not stressing about it.
4 Talk about your taste in music.
I like all kinds of music, just some more than others. I'll even listen to country music occasionally when I need to annoy my friends and family. jk.
If you want to hear a funny joke, ask me about the time I made my Dad listen to Coldplay.
Lastly, this is kinda a downer, but since I have goals and aspirations, I've got to make plans to reach them. My plans for the immediate future don't have a lot of free time or money for frequent or elaborate dates, so while I respect your right to be high maintenance, and would gladly listen to ideas on what you consider an ideal date, for the moment my goals does not include being the only source of happiness/entertainment/sustenance in your life. If you win the lottery however, I might be willing to reorder my priorities. jk.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Meet somewhere like a restaurant for lunch, have some causal conversation, and make sure you ain't crazy. Then I can be twice as crazy to make up for your lack of crazy.
