Hi, I'm Jared. I'm looking for a nice, intelligent girl that can hold a good conversation. I have a very wide range of humor, I find humor in most things. I think laughter is definitely the best medicine and I will frequently make fun of myself because if I didn't I would probably sweat the small stuff a lot more. I get enough stress from work, why add to it by not laughing at my own shortcomings? Sarcasm is probably my favorite form of humor though, and even though I can keep it at bay when necessary, I'm bound to let it loose at some point haha. I also tend to be kind of cynical, but I think I do that more because I find it funny, and I'm a realist, so I'm not going to blow sunshine and rainbows out my rear end.
As for hobbies, I started brewing my own beer last year, and for those who haven't done it before, I would liken it to cooking. You get to mess with the recipes as much as you like to achieve different tastes or alcohol content, which I find intriguing and kind of fun. I like movies, The Boondock Saints is probably my favorite movie ever. I don't really watch much TV, mostly because I work second shift, but when I do I like Family Guy and recently was introduced to Hell on Wheels. I'm not usually into westerns, but that was a really great show. I'm a HUGE Flyers fan and I watch them as religiously as possible for my work schedule. I played baseball for 15 years and I miss it, but again, work gets in the way... I was trying to get in to the military but have recently decided against it for a variety of reasons, instead I'm going to focus on getting promoted and I'm going to go back to school (on my employer's dime too!). In light of that, I had taken out my gauges, but recently put them back in, so if you don't like piercings, that sucks, I'm not taking these things out again! I had to start again from a size 4 to work my way back up to a 00... kind of irritating...
My taste in music is more ecclectic than I let on sometimes, but I primarily listen to metal. The two best concerts I've been to were Slayer/Rob Zombie because it was a couple of hours of rip-your-face-off awesome, and Jimmy Buffett.... don't judge, those tailgaters are better than football tailgaters. Don't believe me? Go to a Buffett show lol. I'm not a big fan of pop or rap, I don't really have much respect for people who don't write their own music, or pop-culture in general. I don't like country, but I can deal with it better than Justin Bieber...
Like I said, I'm looking for a nice, intelligent girl. I don't mean that you need a degree (still haven't finished mine yet), but I would like to be able to hold a reasonable conversation with someone. I want someone who has a good sense of humor, and can go back and forth with the sarcasm thing, but know where to draw the line. I can dish it out, but I can take it too lol. I'm not a racist by any means, but I would prefer a white girl, but that's not necessarily a deal-breaker. I would also like a girl who knows how to take care of herself, preferrably with a job or at least actively pursuing a career (in school, working your way up the corporate ladder, whatever). I would also like to take things a bit slow at first. Start out by talking on here, maybe exchange numbers later, and then meet up.
If you made it this far and are still interested, send me a message. I will definitely respond, I'm always up for a good conversation and getting to know someone better.
Something casual where we can hear each other talk. I'm open to new experiences or old favorites and I'm pretty easy going so if you have a great idea, awesome, otherwise something like coffee or dinner or drinks works for me. As much as I love movies, I think that's a bad first date only because you don't have much opportunity to get to know each other.
