First off, I'm a goofy guy and I'm 100% aware of that. I'm a pretty down to Earth guy I like to think, laid back. I'm a fairly social guy, I like to get out and mingle and I'm all for meeting new people. I don't expect perfection from anyone and hope you don't either.
I'm an animal lover, dogs first and foremost, though I'm no expert. Family is a big thing for me, though I don't judge people on their familial relations. In general I try not to judge people at all. Friends are friends until they become family. I've always formed strong bonds with people who earn it. I like hard rock and harder rock, but good music can catch you by surprise.
First date is always the most difficult. I prefer to go somewhere and actually DO something, shoot pool, bowling, putt-putt. I'm not above going to watch a movie or anything, but it gets old.
