I guess this is the part where I try to convince you I am the best thing since sliced bread…
Well, I don’t believe I am the best thing out there. I have many flaws, just like most people. I am not a wealthy guy, but I do have a good job and I own my home. I could lose a few pounds…I am not FAT by any means, but I need to lose some of the weight I have put on in the past few years, I am working on that. I think someone to motivate me would really help…I actually clean up nice.
I do have some pluses though. I consider myself an intelligent person. I tend to know a lot about a lot of things, mainly science related stuff. Before Google, I was the guy my friends would call to settle arguments. I’m a total science geek. I really love to watch anything related to how our universe was formed.
I can fix or build anything. I’m very handy to have around. I have built engines for cars, replaced transmissions and just about anything else you can think of. I built a couple race cars in my time. I’m a do-it-yourselfer..If there is an issue in the home, I usually fix it myself. I can build a computer from scratch and fix anything related to them.
I’m in tune with politics. I’m not an activist or anything, but I believe it’s our responsibility to know what our government is up to. I do lean to the right/libertarian side of the aisle. If you’re a raging liberal, I doubt we would get along. I believe strongly in personal responsibility.
I'm funny...you just may pee yourself, but that's OK. It will be funny at the time. Then I’ll tell your friends..That won’t be funny to you, but your friends and I will get a laugh and then they will think I'm funny also. I don’t like awkward silence and I usually break that up with some silly joke or something.
I’m an old metal head from the 80’s. Metallica (before Lars dumped his double bass drum) , Megadeth, and my favorite band of all time is Iron Maiden. I don’t mind country music, but I really dislike hip hop and rap. I don’t like Miley, J-lo, or most of the pop music of the day. Katy is nice to look at, but I couldn’t sing one line from any song she has done.
I have 2 kids. One is 16, and the other is 7. The 16 yr old lives with me, and I have shared custody of the 7 yr old. I also have an old cat (16) and a small 3 yr old 4lb Chihuahua. I never have liked small dogs, but I wound up with him and he is now my buddy..:)
I’m on this site because it has become increasingly difficult the past few years to meet anyone new. I have a small circle of friends and don’t do the bar/club scene anymore so I really haven’t met anyone new in a few years now. At this age, time goes by super fast, 3-5 years go by and you don’t even realize it. I don’t want to be suddenly 50 years old and wonder where the last 5 years went and why I spent it alone. I’m happy with where my life is at this point with the exception of my relationship status. I’m really making an effort to change that at this point..I’m not on here looking for a hookup, FWB or a one night stand. I am truly looking for someone to spend quality time with.
Any date where I dont spill something on you, accidentally drop an air biscuit (that's a 3rd date thing), or wake up in a bathtub full of ice missing a kidney. If none of those happen, I consider it a win.
Seriously though, I would rather just go somewhere quiet so we could get to know each other. I don't want to be in a place where we practically have to shout at each other. Maybe a quiet restaurant then something simple like a nice walk somewhere..
