I have a lot of interests. I like listening to music. There, I said it; it's out there. Hopefully, it's not a deal-breaker for you, but I feel strongly about it. If it really bothers you, I don't have to listen to it while you're around. I'm not inconsiderate. Just don't ask me to burn my record collection. At least, not until we've been on 4 or 5 dates. At that point, we can discuss it. But, I'm just saying that if you lead off with that demand, we probably don't have a future together.
What kind of music? I listen to rock, mostly classic rock. Some of the more recent stuff is good, too, though. Really, as long as there is a wailing guitar solo, I'll listen to anything from Chuck Berry to Buckcherry. I also play guitar. See the pictures up above? Now imagine that, but holding a guitar and wearing leather pants. Do you have the image in your mind? Great. I don't actually own any leather pants. I just wanted to see if I could make you picture it.
I also enjoy eating good food when I'm hungry. Am I freaking you out at this point? I'm not trying to scare you off, but this is something you need to know about me if we are going to be hanging out with each other. I'm not talking about an urge I get every few months. No. This is something that happens every day. In fact, more often than not it hits me multiple times a day. If you're with me during one of those times, try to keep an open mind because I will probably want to get some food for you as well. If you just trust me and try some, you'll understand what I'm saying.
Yeah, as you've now seen, I'm a well-rounded guy with many interests, who is passionate about pursuing those interests. And I have several other hobbies and qualities that I haven't even mentioned here (as if liking music and food isn't enough to set me apart from the other guys on this site). I'm looking to meet new and interesting people who I can share these with, and who can introduce me to new ones.
Though I run the risk of making this ridiculously long, maybe I should put a bit more about why I'm here. In a nutshell, two reasons. First, I'm looking for entertaining dates with fun, easy-going ladies. Second, I hope to settle into a relationship if I'm lucky enough to meet someone I like who has strong values. She would be someone who will stand up for her beliefs and speak her mind without fear, but also without being disrespectful or unkind. And, for those of you concerned about my username, I don't smoke -- anything. Hmm, interesting how that's the first thing that came to your mind, though.
