UPDATE 12/30/14: I'm having a tropical winter adventure. I'm bartending and diving on St Croix, US Virgin Islands. The sun and water are amazing, not to mention I've lost about 30 pounds. I'll be back in Portland in a couple months.
I'm potty trained, have all my teeth, don't live with my parents and completely drama free!
I am not looking to trade endless emails. I believe the only way to really get to know someone is to spend time with them. You can tell me all about how nice and sweet you are, but if you are rude to the waitress... Well, actions speak louder than words.
Take a chance, write a quick response and we can take it from there. Trust me, if your best friend knew me, they would try to set us up. LOL
OK, time for the checklist!
Psyco-x's? Nope! All my stalkers are in the past! Currently taking applications for future psycho-x's. ;)
Adventurous? You have no idea! I've actually considered changing my middle name to "Adventure".
Attractive? Yes. I'm not Bradley Cooper, but chances are you aren't Mila Kunis. LOL
I am financially, emotionally, and mentally stable. My only debt is my house. My truck and cards are all paid off. I own a successful seasonal business and gainfully employed. I've never been married and don't have any kids, so no "baby mama drama". I'm college educated and love to read and learn new things. (Reading is sexy, so only women who know how to read should continue reading my profile.) ;)
I'm playful and like to joke around most of the time, but I am a dichotomy. I am a really nice, down to earth guy but I am definitely not boring. I can be the center of attention (especially at work), but I also like to sit back and people watch. I am ambitous and have goals, but I understand that people and relationships are more important than money. I can be serious when I have to be, but I am really just a kid at heart. I am introspective and grounded, but also spontaneous and adventurous. I am not socially awkward. By the end of your company Christmas party I will know more of your co-workers than you do! :)
I enjoy having a great time and laughing my ass off! I travel a lot for fun. Hiking, diving, kayaking, sailing... You name it! I enjoy going out for happy hour or to try a new restaurant but I also like chilling at home, cooking dinner, relaxing, and cuddling on the couch with a good movie.
I really look forward to talking with you and maybe getting together to see if we click. But please say more than just "hi" or "You're cute" LOL :)
Well, there is no ideal first date that works for everyone. Maybe head out to a happy hour or find a cooking or wine tasting class. A concert at a small venue or a bar that has pool and darts. All that I can promise is a wonderful time filled with light conversation and laughter! What really matters is that we connect and it feels comfortable and relaxed.
