I've lived in South Bend for about a year. I moved up here from Corydon (5 hours south, just west of Louisville KY).
Work brought me up here and I don't know the area well, nor do I know many people, so drop a line and say hello :)
Nuts and Bolts:
I analyze everything and believe I can learn/figure pretty much anything out short of rocket science;
I'm a hands on learner, books don't do much for my understanding of a subject;
Type-A male that is always willing to step up and take charge, adrenaline junky, yet kind-hearted, and loves animals and babies;
Willing to put as much as I have into a friendship or relationship and usually allow myself to get taken advantage of more than once before I address it or cut ties;
DRAMA FREE... I don't get into it;
I'm borderline compulsive about cleaning my vehicles... I like my ride to look nice :)
I am a simple person, but not a simple minded person. I grew up a country boy in a small town. This, however, does not mean that I am backwards. I enjoy nice things, but take pleasure, and find solitude, in simple acts and situations..
I'm a fun loving kind of guy, but I'm definitely long out of my "party" stage. I did the whole nightly going out thing long ago... That's what college was for :) I still like to go out socially every now and then, but DEFINITELY don't have to be in a bar or be drinking to have a good time;
I am an Iraq veteran and wouldn't trade that life experience for anything;
I work in Law Enforcement and love every minute of it;
Jack of all trades. I can build it or fix it.
New alternative rock, classic rock, 80's hair bands, some older rap, and country;
My hobbies include:
Motorcycle riding, both on the street and in the dirt;
I am also a self taught musician on the piano, drums, and guitar;
I grew up hunting and fishing and also enjoy hiking and camping;
I love to target shoot. I also enjoy teaching safety and marksmanship to new shooters;
I love big trucks and fast cars, especially when they're a FORD :);
So, I guess there should be something in here about what I'm looking for...:
I'd like to find someone who enjoys being outside and active as much as I do;
I like a woman who can be comfortable getting dressed up for occasions, but can also be cool with ratty jeans and sh*t kicker boots;
I'm an educated person who has working knowledge in a lot of different areas and I'm always willing to learn new things, so someone similar in that aspect would be nice;
I can be very serious when the time comes, but I can also be a goofball. Some might say I can be a bit of a smart ass, ok, a huge smart ass, but it's all in good fun. I would definitely like someone who can keep me on my toes and fire lines back at me when I get rolling;
I also try to keep myself in shape. I'm not a 6 pack glistening in the sun kind of guy.. More of a broad-shouldered farmers tan kind of guy. :) I definitely don't have aspirations to date a supermodel, but someone who respects their body enough to watch what goes in it and take care of it checks off a pretty major box on my list.
Thanks for reading and Good Luck!
How about dinner and drinks, possibly brunch and coffee, maybe a walk, maybe Bed Bath and Beyond; I don't know.. I don't know if we'll have enough time!
