First and foremost, I'm a nerd, okay? I'm not some pretty-boy with washboard abs and money to burn. So if any of that fails your criteria, then move the f*ck on. Usually, I would stop and say if you wanna know more then message me, but I know that's not going to go very far. So here goes.
I like movies, I like sleeping, and not to sound like a big shot, but I'm fairly certain I can get just about anybody to laugh. I'm a movie/tv nerd and I can quote both at the drop of a hat. I am not the jealous type, I understand that people have lives outside of me. My goal right now (other than world domination) is to be a filmmaker. I hate smokers and I can't stand people who are fake. I tend to speak my mind, which has gotten me in some trouble in the past, but I don't apologize for that. I work part time at Stop&shop. For 10 years as a matter of fact. There is not enough time in the day to explain why I don't go full time. Anyway, I graduated from CCSU in '09 with a Bachelors degree in Communications. Most of the time I know when to be serious, but I'd rather be silly and goofy.
Music is where my heart is, even though I don't play any instruments and can't sing worth a damn. Still, that hasn't stop me from belting it out in the car. Since I don't drink, smoke or do any other drugs, music is the one thing that keeps me sane. The feeling I get when the music takes over is something that is just very hard to explain. You don't have to like my type of music (although it is a definite plus) but you have to let me play in it. Just like a kid in a mud puddle (speaking of kids, they annoy me and I don't want any.). If I don't like YOUR style of music, thats ok as well. For those of you who still haven't figured it out, I'm a metal-head. Like, Slipknot, Disturbed, and Linkin Park style metal-head.
Piercings: Depends on how many and where, same goes for Tattoos. The second you look like Pinhead's wife is when its just ridiculous.
Texting/Talking on the phone every 2 min.
Too much makeup.
Short hair. That's a big one.
Group Dates. I am there to hang out with YOU, not your friends.
Braces. I know it can't be helped sometimes but sry, thats a deal-breaker.
Smoking. You can make up for it by having other great qualities, but expect to be harassed by me.
I am looking for the same thing as everyone else, someone who accepts me for me, faults and all. I feel like I should also make it clear that I'm a guy who takes life one day at a time. I take things as they come. DO NOT assume that I'm lost or a bum just because I haven't found my life's calling before I turned 30. I pride myself on being creative and I even have a few things written down. Mostly for Ha-Ha's, but who knows, maybe it will find its way to the bookshelves one day.
Ruley and truely, the "first date", doesn't occur until the 3rd or 4rth outing. It's having small get-togethers to get to know each other first that leads into the "first date". That's how I would start. A small, quiet place to go off to the side and have a nice conversation, or several if things go well. Usually, a coffee shop setup is ideal. Or whatever if anybody has any better ideas.
