I'm usually pretty fun to be around. I'm usually the guy that isn't saying much, but when I do say something, it'll either be hilarious, a good point that nobody's thought of, or both. I'll admit, I am a geek, and darn proud of it too. I've already finished off my college work for now, and I'm just not feeling that whole "I need a Master's" thing right now...mostly because I've started what will likely be my career, which is always fun, especially the massive amounts of stuff to learn (I'll be in training for over a year), and I'm just looking at getting back out into the social world. I'm one of those old-fashioned gentlemanly sorts, nice guy and all (although I do have a spine and it will show from time to time). You know, the guy that not only opens the car door for the lady but also shuts it for her...the guy who remembers to hold the chair for his date...but not the guy who's meek and will take a metric ton of crap for no reason...the true nice guy.
I'm looking for a 21-29 yo single lady, non-smoking and no kids (not ready to make & raise a child of my own yet, much less raise somebody else's, sorry). I prefer my women to have a good, if a bit unusual, sense of humor, as my own brand tends to be, well, a bit sarcastic/cynical. Also, intelligence and confidence gets a big hooray from me. I'm not looking for a surrogate mother, nor do I care for women who want nothing but money. Easiest ways to catch me would be beautiful eyes, long thick wavy hair (natural red is a plus), a toned body, and an understanding that sometimes I need some time to myself. Also, at least an understanding of why I enjoy video games would be nice, if you don't happen to enjoy them yourself (the latter is of course preferred...)
Now, what do you get in the deal, you're wondering, right? Well, it's pretty simple: a Southern gent, who knows to open the car door for you, who pops up unexpectedly with flowers or other random gifts, who's great at listening and helping with other peoples problems. A guy that has a big shoulder for you to cry on, who knows how to make the rest of the evil world just seem to disappear with a hug. A guy who can go from talking about V8 engines and political issues to having a tickle war in the blink of an eye. A guy who can almost instantly identify what movie a song was in, or what movie is playing on tv (if I've seen it) and where it's being censored at. A guy who still believes in honor, and who knows how to switch from mature adult to little kid in a heartbeat. A guy that can give you the fun of a best friend, the excitement of a passionate lover, the security and support of a true man, and the wonder of true love, all wrapped into a teddy bear of a guy.
Any further questions about me or what I'm looking for, just message me, I won't bite...
Movies are not an option for a first date in my mind. After all, I'm out with you to learn about you and to see if we click. Sitting next to one another staring at a huge screen for 2 hours is not gonna help with that...I might as well be in the theater alone...However, a small cafe or casual restaurant (think Panera, not Olive Garden) would be a very likely place, although I've been known to put together picnics and the like for first dates. It really just depends on the person (and the weather...playing in the rain = fun, eating a sopping-wet turkey sandwich in the rain, not so much fun).
