About Matt
"The human soul needs actual beauty more than bread.”
-D.H. Lawrence

Not looking for games. I want a woman who has ambition and is aggressive with life. A lady in every sense of the word.

“I was about half in love with her by the time we sat down. That's the thing about girls. Every time they do something pretty... you fall half in love with them, and then you never know where the hell you are.”
-J. D. Salinger

I live alone and have no roommates. It's been amazing. All these years I've always had roommates or family living with me. Took awhile to get use to the quiet, but now I love it. I enjoy my quiet time.


-I would rather agree than disagree; however, I enjoy a good debate and I will argue for fun at times or to keep you on your toes.

-Would rather laugh than play it cool
-Would rather cook than clean
-Would rather understand than be right
-Would rather be ambitious than complacent
-Would rather have a cat than a dog
-Would rather watch the sunrise than the sunset
-Would rather be happy than rich
-Would rather be learning than consuming
-Would rather be giving than receiving
-Would rather be helpful than a burden
-Would rather be animated than stiff
-Would rather love than lust
-Would rather talk to every animal I see... than not!

-Would rather learn from my past than repeat it forever; however, if I do have to repeat, I hope I learn even more

-Would rather kiss a soul than kiss 2 lips
-Would rather be me than pretend to be someone else!!

Now on the funnier side of things....

- I cook and I am damn good at it and no I do not have any masculinity issues with that
- I don’t play video games like I use too; however, when I do...don’t disturb me or you had better be able to play along. Shhh stop talking now.
- I'm not a heavy drinker anymore; however, I can drink you under the table. That's right. If you think can test this bring your A game. Just remember I was in the military where they train you to be the best drinker possible.
- I don’t keep up on football, but my Sundays are full... but at least you don’t have to share me with the TV on Sundays.
- I'm a trekkie. Don't judge me.
- I'm funny and whitty...there I said it!!
- I'm smart. Clearly I'm not an idiot; however, like most I do have my dumb moments.
- I like my women like I like my coffee... hot and bold=)LMAO
- I don't run unless my life is in danger or reeeeallly good food is involved.

What I'm looking for in a woman:

I want someone who

-who has just as much fun as me grocery shopping for fun things to cook
-who appreciates a good lazy night in
-who enjoys a random night out
-who understands I hate doing laundry and sometimes fall behind
-who knows the difference between good inconsistency and bad
-who keeps me on my toes but doesn't make things difficult
-who can make me laugh
-who includes me in things but knows the value of space
-who wont hog the sheets.
-who can keep me grounded
-who isn't self absorbed.. or rude
-who is family oriented
-who understands that at times I require a bit of attention
-who understands im random, eclectic and sometimes spacey
-someone who knows what she wants

I'll be honest ladies...really kinda tired of hearing "I'm not your typical girl"....cause I seem to meet a lot of the same typical women who really don't have a clue to what they really want. Seriously...every other profile says that!! Be honest and up front about what your looking for. If we go out and the chemistry is not be it...just be honest because I'm sure I'll know it too. Ok so not to sound needy, but this is what I’m really looking for. I’m to a point in my life where I know what I want and don’t want from a woman. I had plenty of time to figure it out so now I am off to find her=)

-I need someone who likes frequent physical and emotional connection like I do, but who helps keeps dependency in check in the relationship so that the two of us do not lose our identities as individuals.

-I need someone who believes and acts on the belief that the intimacy of a relationship is sacred.

-I need a partner who has a good degree of energy, enthusiasm and self-efficacy, as opposed to a partner who needs constant nurturance and reassurance to feel empowered and valued as person.

-I need someone who is not looking to be taken care of, but rather who is realistic about the hard work it takes to build and maintain a stable and satisfying relationship.

-I need someone who will not put up emotional barriers when I’m looking to understand her thoughts and feelings, but rather will communicate with me intimately and candidly.

-I need someone who will join me in taking time to find a complete and genuine resolution to issues as opposed to avoiding conflict by settling for quick, temporary agreements.

-I need someone who regards sex as a meaningful bond between people in love. It's easy to take off your cloths and have sex. People do it all the time. But opening up your soul to someone, letting them into your spirit, thoughts, fears, future, hopes, dreams...That's being naked.

-I need someone who satisfies the hopeless romantic in me.

If you've come this far and survived my long winded profile, feel free to drop me a line. If you're not interested, than happy fishing to you and good luck in your search=)

First Date
Coffee dates rock. It’s easy to do and can be relaxing and casual. Tends to be a little less pressure too. Dinner at a casual kind of place is nice. As long as you can keep me interested by holding a conversation with me and we are in a chill kind of environment, then it does not really matter where we are…just that we get to know one another.

Be a gentleman. Be romantic.
Bring her roses. Cook her meals.
Listen to her. Touch her. Hold her.
Hug her from behind. Dance with her.
Play with her hair. Kiss her neck.
Massage her heart. Be honest with her.
Be serious. Be silly. Be genuine.
Learn everything you can about her.
Tell her how much you love her.
And by all means, when the moment
calls for it, never hesitate
to throw her on the bed,
rip off her clothes,
and ravish her
like a wild
