A little about me...I am just your average American man. I love to find something that looks like its at the end of its road and make it nice again. I take a lot of pride in knowing that I started something and didn't cut corners. Doing something right and putting passion into it shows through when you see the end result.
--NOTICE-- I am not now and never have been LDS. I know this is an issue for some. If so, please move on. Maybe try singles ward or an LDS online dating site. Thank you!
ALSO... I do hunt. Always have, always will. This will never change. If that's an issue, good luck to ya.
I am not interested in dating serial daters or those of you who are on here to keep your ego inflated. If we meet and there is chemistry then I give my attention to you and only you.
I have a full time job that I enjoy. I'm financially responsible. I own my own house and find it extrememly rewarding. It's great pulling up front and knowing that it is mine and that I worked my rear off to get it. I like to keep a clean home. Not like freaky clean, just not slobby. I take very good care of my things. I don't rely on others to take care of me so don't worry, I'm not looking for that. :)
Even though I do know how to dress and keep myself clean, I do not get obsessed with what is the latest fad. There may be a few of you that think this means that I do not have a high standard for the quality of my life. If that is the case then we may not mesh well. I am not superficial. That is all that means. I don't feel that I have to buy a $75 shirt to express myself. I believe that how a person carries themselves and treats others is more important.
I hated Fakebook before hating it was cool! Lol
I served in the Navy and although it was awhile ago, I still consider myself fortunate that I was able to travel and experience different cultures. Traveling is something I'm always up for. People are amazing.
I have to say now that humor is HUGE for me. I am always laughing and love to make others laugh as well. Ive been told numerous times that I should do stand up or try theatre. Most times, when with friends, I seem to end up performing for everyone... or at least it feels that way. I don't mind though because like I said, making people laugh makes me feel good.
Some people thrive on being negative and feel the world is out to get them... please stop reading if thats you. I dont mean to sound harsh but it just wont work for me/us. I read on profiles "no drama". Well, drama is natural in life. Making mountains out of mole hills, isn't.
My family and friends mean everything to me. We are all very close and have helped each other through many trying times but have also been lucky enough to have had even more great times together. I feel that you can tell a great deal about someone by how they interact with their family and friends.
I love being outside and can get along with just about anyone. I'm non-cofrontational but will not be walked on. I think people are interesting and unique. It's fun to experience different settings outside my bubble.
I follow current events and like having healthy debates. I'm always looking to learn new things and would love to take my educational further.
Also, I am allergic to cats and could never have one in my house, no matter the situation. I would never tolerate an animal that craps in a box, cover its crap using its paw THEN jumps on my counter tops. That's disgusting and unsanitary. Lol
Music is a big part of my life but I don't play anything, however, piano is something Ive thought alot about learning. I don't have a certain taste in music. If I were to sit here and rattle off all the groups or performers that I like, I'd be here for an hour. Let me just say that I am a HUGE Pixies fan. I also like Sinatra, Connick, Martin, Cole, Tenacious D and many many others.
**Simple request** If you suspect that you may have horrible breath and/or do not brush your teeth regularly, good luck to you. I know that I shouldn't even have to ask this, but stank-mouth seems to be a growing problem these days. Gross!
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING.... Being that I am a man, I know that you as a woman have most likely heard, dealt with, seen and maybe even felt just about everything that men have done. I have seen this happen as well. All that I ask is that you have just a tiny bit of faith in those of us that know how to treat not just women, but everyone. I do not claim to be perfect in every way. But I do know that if given the chance, you will not regret giving me a chance. Dont let the fact that I am not going to be chosen as the next cover model for GQ be the only reason to NOT talk with me.
