DISCLAIMER: I don't want anyone to be confused about anything I say or do and while dating is fun I don't want either of us to waste time. So if you fall into any of the below category I can tell you right now it probably won't work out...
If you're planning on dating me exclusively... Keep your options open, I may not be what you want, you may not be what I need.
If you are interested in solely casual sex... I'm not that kind of person
If you don't have a story to tell... Holler at me when you do
If you are jealous or possessive... It's not sexy.. at all
If you want a thug... I hope you find what you're looking for elsewhere
If you're looking for someone to mend your broken heart or restore your faith in men... Find it on your own because it's too much unneeded pressure.
If you don't know how to hold a conversation... I won't bother
If you don't have any ambitions or goals or anything to lose in general... You'll drag me down
If you're looking for someone to finance your high-priced lifestyle... Date an investment banker
If you want a man you can walk all over... Then you're nothing like the women I grew up admiring
If you fall in love easy... Don't, that's not what I'm here for
If you're spoiled rotten because you're beautiful or rich... You're in for a rude awakening
If you have a negative rep and don't care... Well, know what they say- If you run with 4 ______(Insert anything,) you're bound to be the 5th
If you seek to take up all my time and attention... You'd better be paying me, if not, then you'll have to settle for my free time
If you don't value yourself... Then I damn sure won't
If you aren't willing to fight for what you love and/or believe in... Then what's the point, of anything?
WIth all that being said I really am a nice guy but I'm very specific about what I'm looking for so yea... read on
About me: I'm one of the most passionate, respectful, driven, funny(maybe), and down-to-earth people you could ever meet. I work for progress as opposed to paychecks so I've done a lot of mentoring/volunteer work in group homes, hospitals, charitable organizations, etc... and still manage to stay humble. I strongly believe in leaving things in a better condition then what you found it in, and bringing out the best in those around me. I strive to set a positive example for the next generation and as such, have set a high standard of excellence. When I'm not out trying to save the world, I work as a Certified Nurse Aide and attend school full time, double majoring in physical therapy and political science. I listen to Hip Hop/RnB mostly but lately I've really been getting into the weeknd... that guy is TALENTED!!!
In a relationship, I would consider myself a better catch than most guys because for starters, I don't meet new people with expectations. a date is just that, or us going to hang out is just that. Also, I do realize that things can get boring, especially once you become familiar with one another, so whether it's trying a new food or taking a trip to somewhere we've never been, I always look for ways to keep things exciting. I prefer honesty/integrity over being told what I want to hear. I believe that when you're upfront about things in the beginning regardless of if it hurts someones feelings, they'll respect you more for it in the end.
Although looks are important they aren't everything, I would be happier with a woman I'm simply attracted to and have a great time with who is ambitious with a sense of humor, than one who is ignorant and stuck on herself. Major turnoff so if that fits you too a tee, please do us both a favor and miss me. Other than that I'm a great person to get to know, so feel free to message me =)
Last but not least, I don't bite, I love meeting new people, and I try my best to write back even if I'm not attracted. I will let you know in advance if that's the case though so you don't waste your time so go ahead and leave a message.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Ok, for extra brownie points I would absolutely LOVE, a woman that would be willing to go team paintballing on a first date, especially if she's good at it! But I know that that may be asking a bit much so this is the exception, not the standard. A nice dinner with good company and great conversation is more then enough to satisfy me. I'm not too hard to please.
