For a long time my profile headline was "ATTENTION GETTER!" because I truly believed that worked, haha! I haven't been active in online dating for the past few years, I was very lucky to meet some amazing women in real life. While I am very selective/picky, I'm not looking for a perfect person... I'm looking for the right person for me. I finally (11/2013) decided to revamp my profile to include more details about myself, in the hopes of meeting her. Maybe it will work?
So about me... I love my life. I am professionally successful and work in technical sales, selling electronic components (small stuff that goes on PCB boards... ya know, those green boards that go into stuff?) into automotive. But I work to live. I try to focus on living each day to its fullest. So when I am out of the office, I do fun stuff. (I say stuff a lot?) I am a family-first person, my family (parents still married, older brother with wife and 1 son / 2 daughers, younger soon-to-be-married brother, and youngest sister with husband and 2 sons) all lives in the metro Detroit area and we try to get together as often as possible. I have a lot of friends, but certain favorites that I am close with and talk with often. I am very active and spend time at the gym, playing sports (football, soccer, ultimate frisbee, and others), doing yoga in the park, hiking, whatever. Some of my other interests include traveling (I've been many places but this world is huge!), listening to music (all sorts), homebrewing, volunteering, writing witty comments on FB, and more!
I added a whole bunch of pictures most from 2013, wow what a year! I always say that toward the end of the year and wonder how the following year can be better, but it always is! I'm a SUPER lucky person, and a firm believer in getting back what you put into something. I add positivity, humor, and loads of sarcasm into the world! Not sure what the sarcasm gives me back exactly, but the positivity and humor seem to work! =D
I'm an honest and reliable person, and expect the same from someone I'm dating. I'm unique. I'm confident and outgoing, can hold a conversation. So don't worry about the first date so much... I call them "meetings" anyway, it's not a date until both parties agree it is so. I'm intelligent and assertive. I'm optimistic but actually more of a realist. I'm down to earth and energetic, yet very laid back.
If you read all of this, then you know a bunch about me. Tell me about yourself!
ORIGINAL PROFILE BELOW (I think the new one is better! =)
I think my profile already says a bunch about me so I'm just going to talk about what I'm looking for.
I'd like to meet a woman I can click with, and see where it goes. Attractive, intelligent, honest, authentic, sense of humor, kind, loving, loves music, likes sports/fitness, the list goes on. These are qualities that I have and desire in someone I'm dating -- I'm not looking for perfection. There also needs to be chemistry -- I am attracted to women who take care of themselves physically.
Enough for now, want to know more? Ask!!
If you add me as your "favorite" and don't write me, I'm likely to just delete you. While I appreciate the fact that there are people "who love me" (I can't blame you -- I am very lovable!) I'm not here trying to be the most popular!
P.S. I am not a gun owner or shoot guns often, just thought it was a cool pic. :)
While the below is true, I don't feel we should invest too much time before our first "meeting." Let's keep it simple, and grab a coffee or drink. There will be plenty of time for epic adventures later, should we choose to keep seeing each other!
ORIGINAL FIRST DATE
I'm laid back so a first date could be just about anything, from going to dinner and the movies, to going to a park to enjoy the beautiful weather and getting to know each other, to hanging out at my place/yours.
