I'd like to think I'm easy-going and can make people laugh, honest, intelligent, and passionate. All I'm looking for is someone who's the same.
I've got an off the wall sense of humor and will go out of my way to make people laugh... even if it means embarrassing myself. Borat thong for halloween... hell yes.
I work hard during the week so I like to relax on the weekends and spend my time camping, relaxing by a fire, chilling with friends, 4x4ing, hiking, and snowboarding.
I'm not looking to date multiple people off here... so hopefully you aren't either....
I can build or fix almost anything... be it vehicle or house.
You better be okay with beards because 99% of the time I'm not clean shaven. In the winter I usually go with the Ragnar Lothbrok look
And yes I have my life together... I have a good job... a house... and nice truck
As a side note... I found Neil Degrasse Tyson interesting long before cosmos ;)
I love repartee.... Usually means there's a battle scene coming
*** If anyone happens to have... or knows anyone who has a Burton Rippey Mission 56...... I reaaaaaalllllly want to buy it!! ****
We are all connected;
To each other, biologically
To the earth, chemically
To the rest of the universe, atomically
I’ve spent this last year trying to figure out the right career for myself and I still can’t figure out what to do. I have always been a hands on kind of guy and a go-getter. I could never be an office worker. I need change, excitement, and adventure in my life, but where the pay is steady. I grew up in construction and my first job was a restoration project. I love everything outdoors. I play music for extra money. I like trying pretty much everything, but get bored very easily. I want a career that will always keep me happy, but can allow me to have a family and get some time to travel. I figure if anyone knows jobs its you so I was wondering your thoughts on this if you ever get the time! Thank you!
And here’s the reply…
My first thought is that you should learn to weld and move to North Dakota. The opportunities are enormous, and as a “hands-on go-getter,” you’re qualified for the work. But after reading your post a second time, it occurs to me that your qualifications are not the reason you can’t find the career you want.
I had drinks last night with a woman I know. Let’s call her Claire. Claire just turned 42. She’s cute, smart, and successful. She’s frustrated though, because she can’t find a man. I listened all evening about how difficult her search has been. About how all the “good ones” were taken. About how her other friends had found their soul-mates, and how it wasn’t fair that she had not.
“Look at me,” she said. “I take care of myself. I’ve put myself out there. Why is this so hard?”
“How about that guy at the end of the bar,” I said. “He keeps looking at you.”
“Not my type.”
“Really? How do you know?”
“I just know.”
“Have you tried a dating site?” I asked.”
“Are you kidding? I would never date someone I met online!”
“Alright. How about a change of scene? Your company has offices all over – maybe try living in another city?”
“What? Leave San Francisco? Never!”
“How about the other side of town? You know, mix it up a little. Visit different places. New museums, new bars, new theaters…?”
She looked at me like I had two heads. “Why the hell would I do that?”
Here’s the thing, Parker. Claire doesn’t really want a man. She wants the “right” man. She wants a soul-mate. Specifically, a soul-mate from her zip code. She assembled this guy in her mind years ago, and now, dammit, she’s tired of waiting!!
I didn’t tell her this, because Claire has the capacity for sudden violence. But it’s true. She complains about being alone, even though her rules have more or less guaranteed she’ll stay that way. She has built a wall between herself and her goal. A wall made of conditions and expectations. Is it possible that you’ve built a similar wall?
