I've been single for a while now. No kids, no crazy ex's. Just focused on my career and future.
Very simply, I am looking for someone who has similar interests as me, but more importantly I'm not looking for crazy drama. My job keeps me full of "interesting" experiences. I'm looking for someone whom I can spend time with and just enjoy each others company, going to movies, hanging out, and doing whatever. I enjoy reading, going to movies, going to bars / lounges.
I'm pretty sarcastic, brutally honest and don't lie. I find that lies tend to compound themselves and honestly, I'm too lazy to keep track of some kind of false narrative. I have a pretty good sense of humor, a little dark but no more than anyone else.
To be honest, I don't really work out, going to the gym is usually the last thing I want to do after a day of carrying 40lbs of equipment and possibly a 200-300lb patient up and down the stairs. But I've started rowing & biking pretty regularly. That's all for now
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
I hate the idea of first dates. Mostly because I can usually tell when a couple is on a first date when I'm out at a bar or restaurant. Sometimes it's pretty painful to watch and I can't help but wonder if that's how I've acted on dates. I have to fight the urge to go up to them and tell the guy to stop with the BS 17th century manners that he probably saw on Game of Thrones and just be himself because eventually she'll figure out that he's not Prince Charming. Then tell her to stop looking at the salads, if you're at Croxleys, order wings, if you're at a bar, get a burger.
The fact is, first dates are all about judgements and I'd rather be judged for the real me and not some guy that'll be a big disappinent in a couple of weeks when you realize it was just an act.
On a side note, I was raised to have good manners despite my personality flaws and am very well spoken despite my propensity to use four letter words. But in this day of saggy pants, baby mamas / daddies, and heinous reality TV, people that can put thoughts to a comprehensible sentence are starting to become few and far between.
