Born and raised in Cincinnati. Those who know me call me Paul. Spent most of my adult life in the Marine Corps. Kind of starting on a different path going to Cincinnati State for mechanical engineering design & manufacture. Had a co-op with a large aerospace firm last semester, going back next semester, hopefully will land a full time job there when I graduate.
I'm not sure about pof asking "how ambitious are you" on here. I don't want to sound like some sort of self-indulgent prick and say very ambitious, but I'm hardly content to settle with the status quo. I have my goals and aspirations and am actively working towards them.
I enjoy the occasional pun or play on words. The end of Terminator 2, when he gives a thumbs up as he's lowered into the molten metal still cuts straight to my feels!
You will never catch me dead wearing crocks, skinny jeans/nut huggers, saggy pants, v-neck shirts, sleeveless shirts, a white belt, cutout shirts, oversized belt buckles, clothes obviously too large/small for me, white framed sunglasses, or hats worn the wrong way/flat billed.
I'm willing to try most anything at least once; be it exploring small mom&pop restaurants, fine dining/social events, anything outdoors.
I like to think I know my way around the kitchen, and actually enjoy cooking for company, however, doing dishes is my most despised household chore.
Why am I here? Well, it's not because I'm some smooth talking, "game-spitting" type. So I don't know, maybe for the same reason you are?
School/work keep me busy, the bar scene isn't my choice to meet someone, so on and so forth.
The only thing I'll ask for is your time and consideration. OK, maybe two things.
Even then, I'm not trying to jump into bed with or throw a ring at you out the gate.
For my own sake I want someone pretty, who smells good and treats me right. In return I promise to give it my all to do the same for you.... though I can't guarantee results on being pretty...
I want someone with goals, that takes care of herself. Someone that we can mutually support and motivate each other.
Respect and honesty are the two most important aspects in ANY inter-personal relationship... aside from arch-nemeses perhaps... But I like to think my parents raised me right - yes/no ma'am/sir, please/thank you, holding doors, etc.
Also, if you're going to message me:
Try to use proper grammar and spelling, try to show that you actually read this (without overtly saying something along the lines of "I read your description"), have something interesting to say of your own right.
I'm sick of the pointless messages that for all I know you send the exact same one out to a dozen other guys at a time. While I'm at it, let's have some sort of two way conversation. I hate when it devolves into question/answer going one way.
Let's keep that open for consideration, but something fun/active first and then going somewhere to relax and talk over food/drinks would be good in my book. Yes, I have a book...metaphorically... and something about a book signing...
