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 miss traveling and would really enjoy having a travel companion. Ireland and Scotland top my list for overseas destinations at the moment. 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 from invading. I have an old Jeep again, and we are learning how to ride with a harness and without doing that crazy thing dogs do in the back of cars. Seriously? Sit down.
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. Phineas and Ferb crack me up, too. 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, a corner stand for the dining 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 against the zombie apocalypse.
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'd prefer to keep it simple with drinks or coffee to start with. If conversation goes well and time permits, dinner, and who knows.... bowling (I'm horrible, but that hasn't stopped me from playing, yet)?
