I am a graduate from Kent State. I grew up in Akron, and I work as a computer programmer in the Greater Cleveland area. I have an apartment in nearby Mayfield Heights. I'm into music (mostly jazz, hip hop, and Asian pop), video games, swimming, and reading. I'm not exactly a world-class athlete, but I do work out to keep in shape and I'm trying to lose pounds. I don't drink or smoke, so bars are out the question. I'm looking for someone honest, trustworthy, and dependable. I prefer someone with a degree and a decent job. Bonus points for gamers.
No Pic, No response, no exceptions!
As far as what I DON'T want:
Women with kids ( I can't afford to be a father right now, let along to kids that aren't mine)
Women without a job
Women without a car (those two are just so I know it isn't about money)
people who don't respect other people's religious beliefs (or in my case lack thereof) - What you believe in doesn't make you a better person, your actions do
Women still living with or still attached to an ex
liars and cheaters (this would be a given, but evidently I just ruled out a majority of single women in northeast ohio)
One of those 'new age' Polyamorous types - I don't share and I only do monogamy I'm sorry, but I've been 'the other guy' on more than one occassion.
Virgins or 'asexuals' - I'm sorry, but I need someone who knows what they're doing in bed. I'm not expecting it on the first date, but if you think I'm going to wait until after marriage, you need not expect us to last long.
Women who try to 'change' men - and this one is important - if you can't accept me for who I am, let me go find someone who will.
I gotta say, you gotta love some of the women on here with their hypocrisy. If I'm not dating the first middle aged obese unemployed single mother of 5 I'm shallow, yet when women shoot down a guy for being to small, being a few pounds overweight, having a certain skin color, or not having enough money It's them having standards. So if they're allowed to have standards, then so can I. I've been burned enough times to know what I don't want. While I would like to find 'that woman', it's been 10 years since my last serious relationship and I've been doing just fine on my own. While I would like a girlfriend, I don't need one and I would be better off being single than settling for someone I don't want.
I'm more traditional I guess. I'm all for dinner and a movie. Either we can hit a restaurant, or I can make dinner back at my place and watch a dvd. I'm also cool with spending the afternoon playing video games. Since I go to the gym We can also workout and hit the pool together.
