Hmm...How to describe yourself without sounding conceited or arrogant? No matter what you say, you're bragging, so I'll just shoot from the hip and see what happens.
I am the guy you can take home to mom and dad, but still just rough enough around the edges to be interesting. I believe in manners. Etiquette is also important and I know my way around the dinner table enough to not be an embarrassment to you or myself. Sooner Football is the greatest ever and Thunder are a close second. I love snow skiing, but haven't gone in years. I love the lake, but can't water ski to save my life. I just got back from Scotland. Holy Crap, I'm going back, and would love to have a travel partner. I have family in North Dallas, so I make a few runs down there each year or meet at Lake Texoma in the summer. "Dog is man's best friend," and my pup is no exception. I saved her from Parvo when she was little, and she keeps the squirrels at bay. Fuzzy loves going for rides in the Jeep to Sonic. She's mental for their cheeseburgers and tots.
While I am adamant about fiscal responsibility and things like keeping your word, I can also be a kid. Yes, I still watch cartoons from time to time and wish the Animaniacs were still on. Music is all over the map, but I can sum it up simply with minimal country and even less rap. Everything else is on the table. I am a computer programmer, and love my career. I am a problem solver, but I also know when to just let you vent and not try to fix it all for you. I own my house and try to fix everything I can. Every project is an experiment and learning lesson. I like to build things with my hands; lamps, my pool deck, and the current project, remodeling my office. Staining the concrete slab has been a lot of fun. Just finished the guest room. I have a sense of humor that has few boundaries, though sarcasm seems to prevail the most. Can you take it AND give it back?
Ultimately, I try to be a good man. I try to do what is right. I help my neighbors and open the door for old ladies at the store. I am far from perfect, but miles from disaster. I want an equal. I want a partner in crime in the zombie apocalypse.
Ok. I didn't expect to have to state this, but my Jeep was born in 88. Please be at least close to her age. It has become apparent the age gap is just too much on an emotional and maturity level. We're just in different places in our lives. I should also add, please have a job. It doesn't have to be anything spectacular, but I like a woman with some ambition and drive. I do well, don't get me wrong, but I'm not your sugar daddy. If I can't respect you, I won't date you, period. Good luck to you.
A random fact about me: I'm left handed. Apparently, this is a deal breaker for some. What's a random fact about you?
I should also add, I will not play the Nigerian con games. I'm in IT. Seriously? You think I'm that stupid? Come on, pick your targets better, please. Don't insult me.
I'd prefer to keep it simple with drinks or coffee to start with. If conversation goes well, time permits, and our crazies are getting along, dinner, and who knows.... bowling (I'm horrible, but that hasn't stopped me from playing, yet)?
