textbook introvert and workaholic with a boy scout streak and a dgas attitude. long term single and mega cautious....meaning i am not in a hurry to make regrets. not one to try to drown my demons, rather face them head on, on my terms.
i can understand you would be alarmed by the username. i chose it because it is more about not following the herd and being an individual. i have a bad habit, well two.... i prefer to think for myself and think out loud.
i find a certain degree of humor and irony on this site. many women lament about not being able to find a nice guy. let me ask what criteria defines 'nice guy' to you? european import, suit&tie job with a gym rat body? well, here's a little insight. some will work blue collar jobs doing the 'dirty jobs' stuff. have hobbies and mind calming activities that you may not approve of or appreciate. some will drive pickups and have cuts on their hands and dirt under their nails. they may not have that gym rat body but they will move mountains during the course of their job. their shoes may not be shiny but oil stained boots with steel toes and well broken in. they may not look like a knight in shining armor from a romance novel but they will be there when you need them the most usually looking their worst. did i just c-block myself?, probably but not like anybody reads these
i'm not a social butterfly. i prefer to be in a place with people i am familiar with and comfortable in. solitude does not scare me. i keep to myself and rarely break the ice with a complete stranger. dont expect me to cold call and say hi. it makes me feel like i'm inviting myself to a place i am not wanted and honestly, i dont like the feeling of talking to myself.
curious for more?, please ask and dont assume. would my profile be better if you just made stuff up?
now the bad....i work third shift, 10p-6am M-F and sometimes Saturdays. thirds is my natural schedule so please take that into consideration.
admission of guilt: my demeanor changes for the much better; from 'indifferent' to 'happy to be important to someone' when there is someone to be important to.
if you write to me and i dont reply, i must say thank you, but i am not interested.
the typical dinner date to get to know each other a little better would be a good start. no sense in doing an activity that one of us just doesnt like and faking it. most of the women that interest me have an appetite to some degree. i must warn you, for me, dressing up is dockers and a polo shirt/henley.
No dancing....to say I'm a horrible dancer would be a HUGE compliment. i dance like the guy in the 'lonely boy' video on a good night and LOTS of alcohol. jello has more rhythm.
