My name is Brandon. I live in sunny Casa Grande, Az. I am originally from the Midwestern state of Wisconsin. I moved to Arizona in September of 2011. I attend college where I am working on my master's degree in Accounting. My goal is to finish my masters and pass my CPA exam. This in turn will lead to me being able to work for whomever I choose. Ideally, I want to work for the IRS as an auditor or the FBI as a forensic accountant. In my free time I like to go to movies, and have dinner.There are a lot of things I want to accomplish in my life, and many things I want to experience. Weather its going out to a movie, going to the best local spot in town to listen to live jazz music, or even going to the shooting range I have pushed forward to experience the things life has to offer.
Unfortunately, I am extremely allergic to cats, and being an animal lover I would never force someone to choose me over their cat.
I believe that I am a very strong non-religious spiritual person. I believe in a higher power, but that relationship is between me and that which is my divine. I do not really care to discuss religion with people due to the overwhelming response of lack of understanding or open-mindedness. Far too many people tend to stop being civil when it comes to religion. I also do not like to talk about politics, again for similar reasons. I think I am a middle of the road person who actually has a balanced view. I think there are good and bad out of all political parties, and I do not feel the need to have to rigorously defend my choice in political knowledge. Also, it seems that the people who have the harshest views in politics are the ones who actually do not understand it. They seem to either buy into everything CNN or FOX News says, blindly following. I try to read and follow news and politics from all sources, but end up seeming to always get agitated and angry due to politics. This causes me to avoid the discussion.
I would say that I am an avoidance type when it comes to interpersonal relationships. I tend to stay away from aggressive confrontational people. I do not mind differences of opinion, but I do not tolerate illogical overly emotional lectures from anyone. If someone cannot speak to me in a calm rational manor, then they cannot talk to me. I am a creature of logic and reasoning, and sometimes that can come across as having a lack of compassion. I can assure you that, a lack of compassion is NOT the case. The people around me would argue this point as well. I am a very compassionate person, but what I am NOT is a person that will pity someone. We all go through bad things in our life, but I will not sit and baby anyone because of those bad things. Bad things are part of being human, and we all need to learn to deal with them in a mature manor.
I would say that I am a nice person. I do not enjoy gossiping or hearing gossip about people, regardless of whether or not I like them. I do not like to swear, or say mean things. I am not the type of person that makes fun of someone just to aggravate them. I would rather be a kind person who gets along with the people that I choose to surround myself with. I can be a smart mouth sometimes, and a bit sarcastic. I do actively try to not, but unfortunately there are times my mouth gets the better of me, and a few things slip out. When they do slip out, they are not tidbits, but rather pointed blunt statements. I do not sugar coat anything, and I am very tactful in my communication skills. I strongly believe that if you want to be happy in life, you have to make yourself NOT be a drag to everyone around you. I believe this strong enough to actively attempt to modify my behavior to something I would be happier with.
I have heard from people that sometimes I seem too "happy go lucky" or too "nice". I do not feel this accurately describes me, because I do have times where I am not nice nor am I happy. The choice I make in life is, I choose to not let situations out of my control bring me down. Those who know me best can attest that I try very diligently to not let others bring me down. If they are only happy by making others as miserable as they are, then that is there choice, I just stay away from them.
I feel this is an extremely important thing, but when it comes to dating and relationships, I will not date someone with children. This is a strong view I have, and I will not bend this at all. As a parent, the most important thing in your life is your child. If you are not there to love and nurture that child, then they will grow into resentment. I know what it’s like to have a parent spend their small amount of free time away from that child. It hurts. It is one of the most painful things a child can experience. The child wonders why when mommy isn’t at work; they choose to spend their free time with some stranger instead of them. I will NEVER put a child through that. In any relationship I develop, I cannot play second fiddle to anyone else. I would not expect a person to play second fiddle to a child, if I had one. If a person cannot place me at the top of the list, then they are not worth my time. If they have children, and their child isn’t more important to them than I, that is a red flag that the person is not someone whom I would choose to be involved with. I understand that this creates a no win scenario for some, but that is the choice I have made. I am sorry if that offends anyone, but it is my life, and I must do what is best for me. I feel I am just experiencing what I want in life. It should be noted, someday I may want to be a father, but right now in my life, I do NOT want children. I don’t want the responsibility of having to take care of a child just yet in my life.
I could go on and on for pages, but I will cease and desist for now. If you have any questions don't be shy, feel free to ask.
If you would like to communicate with me, send me a message with more than TWO SENTENCES and "hey" or "yo" in the subject line. THIS IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT!!!!
Please understand, I am seriously looking for a relationship, but one of the things that annoy me greatly is the short internet jargon.
If you send me message, make sure it is somewhat legible. Please know the difference between than and then, and when to use them. Also, if you would like to communicate with me, send me a message, not just clicking a button that sends me an email that you would like to meet.
