Concerning Plenty of Fish - If I don't respond, I think it is safe to say I am not interested. I'd rather go that route, than waste time explaining why, and end up offending someone. I am selective, sorry.
Personal Info, traits, & personality ~
I value my intellect over my brawn, my honor over my pride, and my principles over getting ahead. Rare these days. eh? Also, drop the stereotypes when concerning me, I'll make you look foolish every time. My confidence is occasionally mistaken for arrogance. I've heard I am intimidating to some, until they get to know me. My personality type is ISTP (Introverted Sensing Thinking Perceiving - Portrait of the Crafter (iStP) ”The Virtuoso"). I am a bit introverted, but not overly. I am a mature, sincere, hard working man.
I am honest to a fault; probably a little too blunt. You'd be hard pressed to find someone as real, as I am. Can you handle that? (Meaning I don't sugar coat the obvious/truth, to soften reality or lessen the blow to other's perceptions/egos) I am a realist. It is what it is and I speak my mind.
I am not a typical guy, in the sense that, I won't pursue like others do. Dogs chase, men leave an impression and hope you can't get them out of your mind. I have a bit of a Dominant mentality (Alpha). It is a theme that resonates in my personality ... from being a Gemini, being from a military family, to my innate character.
Day to day, I have a serious approach to life. I am a hard-worker, and try to be the best I can be, at whatever it is I may be doing.
If life is the game, then I play hard.
"Steady on the grind, sparks flying like I'm sharpening knives." - Me
FYI - I work 2pm - 12 am through the week. I do work a lot, which is why I am looking around online. That, and I hate the bar and club scene. Having been a bouncer for years, I know that I won't find a lady in that type of environment, plus I don't drink.
With all that being said, I do not wish to appear as though I am void of a sense of humor. It is more mature, witty and dry than silly. I.e. George Carlin over Dane Cook. I do know how to enjoy myself, however.
Other words that describe me - Eclectic, Passionate, Creative, Artistic, Educated, Analytical, Free thinker, Idealistic, Outspoken, Opinionated.
I enjoy/value: Filet Mignon, Crab legs, shrimp scampi, Mahi mahi, Baklava, Ice cream, Coffee/Frapp'e/Mocha/espresso, Chocolate, Asian Pears, Fuji Apple Pear Sobe', Cooking, Nature, Storms, The Beach, The mountains, Breezes, Clear skies, the seasons, Art in General, Health, True Friends, Honor, Loyality, Respect, Integrity, Character, Personality, Intelligence, Progressives, etc.
Interest, & Hobbies ~ I write lyrics/poetry, play guitar, draw, paint, etc. Anything creative really.
Reading factual sources to expand my knowledge and perception of reality. Philosophy, Psychology, Human behavior, Science, Astronomy, and so on.
Music ~ My taste vary greatly. I like... Some Jazz, Some Classical, Some R&b, Some House/Trance/Jungle- dubstep. But Never country! My favs are - Hip hop: Tupac, Snoop, Tribe, Rakim, Epmd, Paris... Into the modern stylist like: OutKast, Method Man, Xzibit, Eminem, & 50 Classic Rock: E.g. Pink Floyd, The Doors, Led Zeppilin, Hendrix, Sabbath, etc. Old School Punk: Dead Kennedy's, Misfits, NOFX, Pennywise, Social Distortion, Suicidal Tendencies, Operation Ivy, Primus, Rancid , Sublime, Greenday, Kings of Leon, Nirvana, & teh like. Modern Rock-Metal: Tool, A Perfect Circle, Pusicfer, Sevendust, Deftones, Godsmack, Old Staind, (Some) Manson, RATM, SOAD, STP... the list goes on and on. Tool is, hands down, my favorite band.
Television & Movies ~ I don't watch much T.v., If I do it is usually on the news, weather channel or a documentary. I'm not a movie buff either, although I have some favs, such as... Natural Born Killers, Pulp Fiction, Contact, Rainmaker, Lord of the rings, Willow, 5th Element, Devils Advocate, and so on.
Romantic history ~ I've been in three long term relationships, each lasting over two and a half years. The last one ended in 2009 and I have been single, by choice, since. Unlike many, it takes me time to recover, and mend, before I try again. I've been single this long, so obviously I am not in a hurry. I can wait until I find what I need. I remain open but weary, let come what may.
My match ~ is someone I find attractive, obviously, with an appealing personality. One I find intellectually stimulating, etc. It is all preferential, depending on each person's taste. I could say a Virgo or Aquarius (suppose to be my matches) or make up something like 5'3, blonde, with a nice booty (lol), but it's about chemistry; Not any of that meaningless drivel. Women who are Dominant, mouthy, stuck up, prudish, shallow, dramatic or gold diggers need not apply. Two dominant personalities are a fight waiting to happen, but I dont desire a door mat either. Sweet, sincere and a little submissive works well with me. On the physical plane: I like feminine ladies, not tomboys who hunt, fish & ride four wheelers an such. I am attracted to women who take pride in their appearance, health & their bodies. Hell no I'm not shallow, that's just my preference & my lifestyle, as well. I'm far from flawless/perfect, however, I believe we should each aspire to be the best that we can be; Hence, I desire those that practice the same philosophy.
Jenna Marbles is my dream girl in theory = http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=LQ7wT4CUprQ
O.k., now that I've divulged myself completely and honestly, feel free to run away. :P Most women claim to want men that are 'real/upfront', yet if we put ourselves out there, many shy away. Oh well, this is me. Flawed to some, but perfect for someone. -- That is who I seek.
Are you her? Let's find out, shall we?
