First and foremost, let me just say I hate writing these things, especially since I just finished a pretty nice write-up, only to have it lost by good old modern day technology. It is pretty darn difficult to write 400 words describing myself. Dental work sounds more fun.
Born in Nashville Tennessee, raised in Mississippi, I am a southern boy but not your typical one. I’ve moved around a lot over the years and lived mainly out west. Yep, I have a southern accent, nope, I don’t hunt or fish. I do love football though. The SEC is this best conference in nation! Go Vols (errr Dawgs)
I think one the most important traits for any person to have is to be genuine. This is something I pride myself on. How people can live their lives behind a façade is a mystery to me. Just tell the truth. Who you are is who you are. People will find out the truth about you eventually. If you don’t like who you are, change it, but don’t try to be someone you are not. This is important to me, whether it is myself, a friendship, relationship, or business colleague, be yourself.
Now, I am going to do my best at describing myself, but don’t expect greatness here.
I think those who know me would say that I am a genuine, honest person. I work hard, I am ambitious, and I strive to be the best person I can be on a daily basis. I definitely have a sense of humor and love to laugh. A good laugh just makes the day better. I can laugh at myself, and do, a lot. They would say I need to smile more. I smile inside. I am not an unhappy person; I just don’t smile a lot. I love my dog, he is my boy! He is the first dog I raised from a puppy, and I must say, I did a pretty darn good job.
If you don’t like sarcasm, I’m not for you. I am sarcastic, so much so, that it gets me in trouble sometimes. It is engrained in me; I just have a thing with being playful and giving a hard time. I’m very candid at times. If you ask, I will tell you what is on my mind.
I like being active, although I hate cardio. My day starts every morning early with a trip to the gym. My worst fear is being 50 and not slim, or even worse, 40 and not slim. I love lifting the weights. I am all about the burn. I also love doing other active things, such as wakeboarding, snowboarding (not very good), softball, football, and spending time with my dog. I’m all about hiking new trails and mostly anything else related to the outdoors.
I like movies, music, and TV. I have been known to play a video game from time to time, mainly sports. I am not a huge TV buff. ESPN is the only reason I have cable, although, the Sons of Anarchy show is phenomenal. Music is kind of whatever thing for me. My iPod has a huge mix of it. I can’t listen to rap.
I love to travel, and see new places.
Well, I am sure I could say more about myself, but I am sure most who read this probably have probably read enough.
The most important thing to me in that special someone is that she is my best friend. We need to communicate well, she should be honest, spontaneous, caring, invested, ambitious, somewhat independent, and have a sense of humor. She can be a little selfish, but not so much, that it is all about her, all of the time.
God and religion is important to me. She needs to be someone that feels the same way.
I think we all know what makes a friend… a friend. I shouldn’t have to explain it.
I am willing to invest into the right person, but am not looking to jump into a relationship right away. We’ll start with some conversation and go from there.
This will draw hate mail, but I do not care. Tattoos: I am not a fan! I have strong beliefs in regards to marking up your body. Whether it sends a message or is sentimental, it doesn't matter. I don't have any and I don't think I could be with someone that does. This is not meant as an offensive statement towards anyone; they just aren't for me.
Another blurb to narrow the field even further. i've been a bachelor for as long as I can remember. I don't know what type of father I would be at this point in my life. So, if you have children, it's probably going to be a tough sell for me to see myself in that position. I'm not on here to lead anybody on, and I just want to be honest.
Seems like this list gets longer and longer... Folks... I can't do the roller coaster after only a week or two of knowing someone. Sometimes, slower is better. Relationships take time. We are all looking for the right person, which is like looking for a needle in a haystack. Let's take it slow and see what develops.
We’ll talk later!
