I had a long spiel here; I'm not convinced anyone ever read it all so I'm trying a revamped approach. Note to start: I'm really not here as a ****boy. If I send you a message it won't contain something about your breasts or your hotness, so just please read and if you don't respond at least you gave it a chance. Nothing more annoying than seeing "unread deleted". Why else are you here, otherwise?
I enjoy reading; all manner of genres but specifically sci-fi, fantasy, history, graphic novels, news, and most of what falls into the "classics" category. Very varied. Ba dum chhh.
I like working on cars with my friends, and then taking those cars for long and fun drives. AutoX and the strip, etc. Been awhile since I've had the time, though. Windows down, music up, and an open road is an ideal escape, just to see where I wind up. I like adventures.
Road trips are perfect. Live music from my favorite groups that never schedule here are great excuses to take one. Music? I'll give most groups a try, though I'm not terribly fond of rap or country. If you know about Symphonic Metal, you probably know who I listen to most, because it all spins out from there. Nightwish, Epica, Within Temptation, Amaranthe, Epica, Kamelot, Evergrey, Sabaton, etc.
I'm faithful, though I don't require it nor will I proselytize to you. If we can discuss our various beliefs that's fantastic but it's not necessary at all. If you don't judge me; I won't judge you.Beyond that, I guess I have the same typical enjoyments as most people. Gamer, hanging out with friends when there's time, binging out the newest show everyone is raving about to see if it's legit or over hyped, trying to figure out what is going on with society today, Shelby Farms for exercise, sports watching…though I haven't got a fantasy team. Never did jump on that wagon. Think I should? Tell me about it.
INFJ / INTJ if you're into that kinda thing. Took it twice weeks apart for the chuckles.
What I'm NOT looking for:
I'm not looking for drama, and I'm not looking for someone who needs to constantly get drunk to enjoy her life or those in it. I'm looking for someone who is ready to get into a serious relationship.
I understand people carry on multiple conversations on these sites, testing different waters. I think we can all agree it sucks to be ghosted though, right? So don't. If you've carried on a good conversation with someone for a few days, or exchanged numbers, or even agreed to make plans, but maybe you get a better connection you want to explore instead, fine. That's understandable...but be big enough to tell the other person you're going a different direction. If you are the type of person who would rather ghost someone to "spare their feelings", you aren't looking at it from their angle at all...and you can move on to the next profile as well. In this age of "online dating" where everyone is constantly looking at the next "ooh shiny" instead of what's in front of them, that sucks, alright? So don't do it.
A final thought: I will not respond to single sentence or text-speak messages consisting of your attempts at being flirty and/or sexual. I'm not here for that. If the best you can do is "hy baby, hw u doin, ur sexy", I will be moving right along.
A first date tends to form itself around the individual. What you like may not be what the next person likes. However, I realize that's really no answer at all so I'll follow-up with this: There will probably be a meal involved if we're hungry. Nothing cheap or ridiculous like McDonald's. I can't believe some people get away with trying to take a date there.
No, some place nice, with an atmosphere and an aura where we can chat and get to know each other. Maybe we'll follow up to a karaoke bar (yes, I like to sing). Maybe a stroll through a park or a greenway. Maybe we'll just sit and chat and see how the night goes. It should be naturally fluid, right? There must be chemistry, or otherwise you're just sitting and talking to a stranger over a meal and wishing the night were through.
