I'm a small town guy. Been that way my entire life. Work and household chores can take up a lot of my time. Just like every man alive i have a hobby. Mine is cars. You can find me in the garage working my truck, or at a car cruise hanging out with my friends. While it used to consume a lot of my time, I've found myself appreciating the simpler things in life more. I'm finding just as much joy sitting on my front porch swing watching the day go by. I also enjoy cooking. Not so much the cleaning up though. I'm pretty handy. There is not much I can't build or fix. I usually have some sort of project going on around the house at all times, and a thousand more planned in my head. I consider myself kind of a perfectionist when doing something. Probably why I'm in the profession I'm in. I am my own worst critic. I have an introverted personality. I'm not much on small talk, but get me in an interesting conversation and I won't shut up. It doesn't take much to keep me entertained. I prefer texting over phone calls, dive bars over clubs, bonfires in the fall, and house parties over going to the bars. I'm not much of a sports junky. I do go to quite a few cardinal baseball games. It's the only sport I follow. Not a big surprise being from around. St Louis.
As far as what I'm looking for. I'd like to find a girl that is self sufficient. Has been on her own long enough to actually know who she is, and knows what she wants out of life. Goal oriented, and understands what an honest days work is. I'm not interested in a girl who feels entitled to whatever she desires just because she has a pretty face, but doesn't have substance or drive to better herself. I'm looking for my equal. Well that's a start.
Quick fun fact... The "Meet me" feature is pointless if you don't click on the users profile first. There is no way to figure out who you are. Like you, I refuse to pay for a site just to see which girl might be slightly interested in me. Those who do this I assume are using it as hot or not feature. Thank you. I'm flattered.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Could be as simple as a quick lunch at a small diner or pub, dinner and a movie, to watching a random local band play. Going to a baseball game. All depends on how much time is available.
