Not here for a one night stand
So, I’m on this website because I wanted to try something new and I am ready to start dating again. I have been single for a little over a year BY CHOICE, because I just needed to make myself happy and figure out which direction I wanted to take my career. I am now looking forward to meet someone and maybe make a new friend or hopefully even find that special someone that I can fall in love with. For those that are curious, I have never been married, I have no children, and I hate drama.
I hate trying to describe my personality in words because words only go so far, but I'm going to try my best. So, here it goes...
I'm a really laid back guy who likes to make the best out of any situation. I rarely get mad and I like to joke around a lot. My friends would describe me as considerate, funny, sweet, fun, kinda dorky at times, laid back, genuine, and sometimes opinionated. Sometimes, joking around is kind of a defense mechanism I put up in awkward situations, but that is one thing about me that sets me apart from some other fools out there. I can also be very sarcastic at times so if you don’t get sarcasm, maybe I’m not your guy.
I’m not your typical guy as I don’t watch or talk about sports 24/7. This doesn’t mean that I don’t enjoy watching games on occasion because that is false. I do enjoy the occasional football game or basketball game, but I really don’t know enough about those sports to talk stats and trades with most guys. Usually if someone starts talking about mainstream sports and stats I just smile and nod. lol I do LOVE one sport that usually keeps my busy year round. SOCCER! That is my true passion when it comes to sports. That is one sport that I can spout off stats, players, and trades with people. My favorite teams are The Columbus Crew (obviously) of which I also have been a season ticket holder for 7 years, and I am a big Liverpool fan as well. I try to keep up with most of the leagues around the world, but there are just too many. I also enjoy taking in the occasional tennis match as well.
I love getting outdoors and doing pretty much anything. When healthy I play soccer year round and you can usually find me playing a pickup game or league games around Columbus. I’m not awesome, but I’m pretty decent. I have been playing since I was 8 and I’m just really passionate about playing. I will probably play until my doctor forces me to stop or I become disabled. This summer I am also getting my USA Soccer Federation National "E" coaching license so I can teach my nephews proper football (soccer) tactics and skill. Besides soccer, I enjoy playing tennis. I have been playing tennis since I was about 10 and had private lessons until I was about 17 and played for my high school team. I also have been going to the gym on a regular basis. I try and go at least 4-5 times a week just to get and stay in shape to avoid injury. I also enjoy going to state parks and enjoying nature. I go for short hikes at many of the beautiful Ohio state parks and fish a couple times a year. I find fishing to be very relaxing and exciting at the same time. Another thing I like to do at, well one park in particular, is backpacking in the spring and fall. I usually go to Wayne National forest by Athens where they have amazing backpacking trails. The one I go on most is a 2 day trip that covers about 12 miles of somewhat rough hilly terrain. It’s a blast! Another thing I want to get back out and do in the wintertime is snowboarding. I haven’t done it in about 5 years, but I have really wanted to get back out and have some fun.
Usually during the week I like to keep it simple. I watch movies, go to dinner, cook dinner, hang out with friends or just relax. Usually during the week I don’t have much time to do things because I don’t get home until around 7, which leaves very little time to be very social. On the weekends I like to go to any event that sounds fun like festivals or a travelling show of some sort. I also like to watch bands and comedians whenever and wherever. I miss a lot of local comedians and bands during the week, but try and make up for it on the weekends. I also enjoy going with friends to bars and just mingling, having good conversation, watching bands, and meeting new people. I can be a social butterfly in most situations, and am easy to get along with. After all, I used to bartend, so I am comfortable talking to pretty much anyone.
I am pretty passionate about music. I like all styles and types of music except country. I just never really liked country. No reason at all, I just don’t like it. I’m not into Heavy metal either. I do like hard rock, but not screamo music. (Which is weird because the first band I was in high school was a screamo band) Oh yeah, I used to play music before soccer took over my music playing time. Now I just listen.
Anyways, I think I just spent way too much time describing myself and hope that this is sufficient information for whoever reads this. If you want to know anything else, please ask. I’m an open book.
*This is still under revision*
I don't know.. I guess I like to keep it simple. The first date is for getting to know one another. I would say meet at a coffee shop, or small diner to chat and goof off, maybe it could be going out for a couple drinks at a small tavern. Maybe even bowling or something competitive and fun. Oh, and I like to play a game called just the tip. I'll teach you how to play! ;)
