So my name is Mike... I work and go to school full time. I am a chef by trade but have hung the knives up recently for something less stressful while in school. I am now bar tending. I will be done with my associates degree in the summer of 2015 and as of now plan on starting on a bachelors in social work at UALR in the fall. I lived In Chicago for 8 years and there is still a tiny chance I will move back to complete my education but I'm hoping someone special will come along and talk me out of it though! I plan on becoming a Licensed Clinical Social Worker which means I have about 5 years of school left but it will be well worth it.
I am really close to my family and love spending time with them when I can. I also have a small but very close knit group of friends. I was heard a guy say that there is not strength in numbers rather there is strength in loyalty. I choose to not surround myself by negative people who are not advancing in life. I can not be around stale people. I need to be challenged and held accountable by my friends.
So I don't drink or do drugs. It has been two years since i retired from the party life and for good reason lol. I have worked very hard to get where I am now and I enjoy the comfort of this new lifestyle. With that being said... I am not opposed to dating someone that drinks. I made the choice for myself not everyone else in the world lol. I don't wanna date a party animal but if you like to have a drink on the weekends or with dinner thats not an issue for me. I just cant be chasing someone around the bars on the weekends.
I have never been married and I have no kids. I love kids and plan on using my degree to work with kids. I am completely open to dating someone with one or possibly two kids but I absolutely want to have at least on kid of my own.
Uhh I'm almost done... I like to ride horses, take road trips, go to concerts, go to nice restaurants, but cooking a nice dinner and hanging out at home is always good with me. Anyway enough about me...
