I am not your average guy, but how many times have you heard THAT before? I am half Greek, lived in Greece for 8 years, then moved back to the states in 2000 to finish growing up and begin my life. Up until last summer I lived on the West Coast, from San Diego to Seattle, and absolutely loved it.
I am new to New England and haven't quite gotten used to the cold up here yet, so my hobbies are somewhat limited to what I can stand to do before I lose feeling in my extremities from the cold. I am an outdoor kind of guy, love hanging out outside when the weather is good. I love to BBQ, have friends over for drinks and good food, and just relax until sunset. I absolutely love the beach. I have never in my life lived somewhere that wasn't a short drive from any type of salt water. Surfing is big for me, although I am no Kelly Slater!! Skateboarding and BMXing are close seconds, and am down for just about any other outdoor activity you can think of.
I am 10 years away from retirement, and am planning on moving back to Greece and opening a bar and living out the rest of my days bar tending and traveling the world during the off seasons. You like to travel? Impress me enough and I might let you tag along.
Just having lived overseas for the majority of my life is what makes me unique. I don't quite fit in anywhere I go, and always tend to be the amusing social outcast that intrigues people but alienates me at the same time. Also, I tend to come off as a jerk from time to time because I tend to be entirely too blunt and open about my opinions on socially unacceptable subjects that I bring up at the most inopportune times, but I pride myself on my ability to turn it off and keep my opinions to myself when needed.
Music is pretty much anything EXCEPT Pop, newer hip hop, rap, and country. I tend to favor rock, alternative and nu metal more and more lately. One of my favorite bands right now is Every Time I Die.
I really hate these online dating sites because it just makes me look desperate, but a good friend swears by this site, so I am giving it a try. I am looking for a relationship, not another notch on my stick of serial dating. I am looking for someone who is going to dig me for me, not for who I can pretend to be.
First date eh? I would say something simple, coffee or a light dinner early in the evening. Something or somewhere with the least amount of ambient noise to help facilitate decent conversation. I want to get to know someone, joke around, tell stories, learn about them...not sit around and scream at each other over music, or have to whisper during a movie. If we hit it off, there will be plenty of time for that later.
