Alright ladies, so you have a southern transplant looking for love in a concrete jungle (yeah I know it's a little cheesy but it's true). I'm on here because I'm looking for something special with a real woman in the relationship department, so I decide to change it up and look online. I'm a 30 year old, single black male who's professionally employed with the government. College educated, and I have no children. I'm cool, mature minded, slightly sarcastic, laid back/down to earth, funny/goofy/quirky, sweet guy. In my free time I'm also a freelance artist and writer. I love TV, film, and animation and hope to one day work in that field as a writer/creator, director and producer. I work 40 hrs a week/5 days, and go to the gym 4-5 times a week so my schedule can be a little hectic but if you're the right lady then I'm making room for you in it. Former military brat so I've been a little of everywhere. Just recently moved up here to the Arlington area (Crystal City/Pentagon City to be exact) from Alabama for work. I'm super excited about the new area but would love to find an awesome young woman to explore the city with.
Unlike a lot of other people (especially down south) I don't get caught up on race or skin color. I'm attracted to women from all kinds of races and backgrounds, as I have friends and family from all walks of life. Not to mention true love is hard enough as it is to find so why put so many limitations on trying to find it, but that's just me. With that in mind I'm into a lot of different types. But when it comes to dating now my main focuses are her... 1. Personality (gotta be someone you connect with, can't live without, that best friend and girl friend all in one). 2. Current career/career aspirations (yes independent women are super hard to find in Alabama). 3. Mindset (hate feeling like I'm raising a big kid, so someone on a similar level would be a nice change). 4. Lifestyle (30 now and trying to get my grown man on, so I can't be out parting every night, blowing off work, and sabotaging my future). 5 Goals (you can't change people so it helps when you know what each wants out of life, whether it be kids, pets, toilet seat up or down, all that good stuff).
So while I've met some great women, I haven't had a really great date in a while. Would absolutely love to find someone cool and sweet, who I can really vibe with and see myself dating again. You know grab dinner and some drinks, a little friendly gym workout, or go to the park and just talk and get to know each other better. A woman I can be myself around, and make sparks fly with. Someone who is tired of the mind games that people play, and really wanting to meet someone who they can start something special with and maybe build towards a future together. Settling down doesn't scare me anymore, and I know I'm more then ready to meet that woman who will change my life forever. I'm just hoping it's not the end of the world, and there is still a cool chick out there who is REALLY ready for a good guy in their life.
And in case you were wondering about the name, once upon a time long long ago I was going to be a professional wrestler. That's when the name Johnny Turbo was given to me. My career ambitions have changed over the years, but luckily the nickname stuck.
Gotta kinda decide each first date depending on the type of person you're taking out. With that in mind it should be something in a public setting (no apartments, back alleyways, abandoned warehouses, or anywhere else that makes you seem like a creeper ), sorry bad joke. No but it should be public, comfortable environment, something that allows you to have fun, have some great conversations, and maybe even learn something new. I'm cool with chilled first dates but I do like to be thoughtful and romantic too. Always an awesome idea when you can do something that has some special significance to that woman.
But if I had to pick a good idea for a date off the top of my head, then maybe a trip to the zoo followed up with a picnic, duck feeding, and maybe a little hand holding in the park. Hope that's not too corny, and no I'm not a cheapskate cause I love going out for a nice meal, movie, and topped off with a few drinks to end the night. But I've learned sometimes in life when all the money, glitz, and glamor are washed away the simple things are what our hearts and souls generally want to hold on to. Oh and yeah Rollercoasters are a close second ;)
