Hey all, my name is Mike. Pardon the stream of consciousness and the amount of words I'm about to type. The best way to keep it real is to say it from the head and from the heart so I'm just going to let it all out.
My favorite ice cream is mint chocolate chip.
I'm afraid of death and velvet.
I own a sewing machine which I use on a regular basis and I like to take photos, specifically sports photography.
I have a gross distaste for the FL Gators, but only because my brother graduated from there and I like to give him a hard time.
I will eat almost anything and try almost anything at least once.
My nickname is "Jester".
I don't do drugs, smoke cigarettes, or wear make-up.
"What's my favorite movie?" is a loaded question which I refuse to answer because I don't think it's possible to have only one, at least not for me.
My headline is a quote from ONE of my favorite movies of all time. If you know it, then you're my type of girl.
I have 6 tattoos, but no piercings. My mom always told me that the day I came home with an earring she would start making me wear dresses. I still take the threat very seriously.
I speak english, spanish, and french, and I was born in Scotland (no accent though).
I don't go to clubs or bars to pick up girls.
I like to use semi-colons properly and often; I'm a geek.
I HATE reggaeton and dislike country music (Taylor Swift is not country), but I love everything else.
My doppleganger is Andrés Iniesta, the guy that scored for Spain in the 2010 World Cup final. Until then, I don't think that anyone who looked like me existed.
When it relates to people, I RARELY use the words "love" or "hate" unless I truly mean it.
I have a weird tan.
I love to cuddle. I don't mind being the big spoon or the little spoon.
I ran over 800 miles last year. My goal this year is to run over 1000 miles. I detest running without a purpose.
One of my guilty pleasures is Adam Sandler movies.
I create and design sneakers. I used to own over 200 pairs but now I try to keep it realistic at somewhere around 70 pairs; I don't know the exact number because it fluxuates often.
I cry during the first 15 minutes of "Up" everytime I watch it.
I curse like a sailor, but clean up nicely.
Ok... that's about all I got at 2:38am... here's some more about me if you're still reading...
I'm a young 27 years old and I'm an aspiring professional soccer referee. I've been doing it for the last 11 years and it encompasses my life. Unfortunately, it's a male-dominated profession, so I have had little opportunities to meet women so I'm trying this POF thing out. :)
I've taken some college courses, but nothing too serious because school can conflict with my job, but I'm at the point now in my life and career where I can go back and take a couple more classes and perhaps finish up a degree in something.
I've dated here and there over the last 5 years but nothing has really stuck for more than 6 months, by no fault of my own, just wrong place wrong time situations, and I'm really hoping to change that.
I'm very honorable, intelligent, witty, loving, romantic, dependable, sweet, kind, supportive, lovable, caring, out-going, funny, honest, athletic, silly, and confident.
I'm pretty much looking for someone who has the same qualities as mine and will be there and support me as I aspire toward my dreams so I can be there and support you in yours. I want someone to cuddle at home and watch movies with, and someone to take to a club and dance the night away with. I want someone who will be proud of me when I achieve something new, and someone to help me through the struggles when I fail. I promise I am very good at reciprocating every quality that I look for.
If you think this could be you, then maybe we should meet. I have a fragile heart and I don't give it away lightly, so please handle it with care if I give a piece to you.
If I left anything out, send me a message and I'll try to fill in the blanks :)
Truthfully, I'm willing to do anything on first date, as long as it's fun and it gives us an opportunity to get to know each other better. But be forewarned, if you decide to challenge me in a sporting venture such as putt-putt or bowling, I will NOT let you win, you'll have to earn it :)
