First, I guess I should say, IF I send you a message on here, its because I think there's something special about you. I do not believe in the "shotgun" style of finding someone, where you just talk every single person who's cute and hope that one decided to message me back. I literally might send 3-5 messages a year on here... So, if I message someone on here, its because I read their profile, think they're attractive, and think they're a good match for me.
Cliff notes of who I am:
My name is Joel, I'm a laid back guy. I am very sarcastic and like to joke around a lot. I like to think I have a good sense of humor. I feel I am fairly well educated and I use proper grammar. In the summer I play a lot of volleyball and softball, but when the weather is cooler I do play more football. I am a very hands on mechanically inclined guy. I was an auto mechanic for 3 1/2 years before I finished my college courses, and I feel like there's nothing I cant do, and do well. Being single, I do eat out a lot. I can cook a few things, but the time it takes... I would almost rather eat out and just call it a convenience fee. I'm a gentleman, I still believe in opening doors for a woman, calling older people Sir and Ma'am, and so on. I enjoy making a woman feel wanted and like they are the only person that matters when I'm with them. I am computer aided drafting certified through MMC Business and Tech. With that education I landed a job as a Continuous Improvement Specialist at Blount International. I've worked there since Nov 7th 2011. Being a prior mechanic, I do still enjoy working on my cars and bike. I also enjoy traveling. I went to Bocas del Toro, Panama this summer and now I'm addicted! I'm trying to get a trip planned to go to Jamaica early this winter, then go to Japan early/mid next year.
If I tell much more than that, what's the point of ever going on a date?
I bring a lot of experience with relationships. I've made a lot of mistakes in my time, but have learned so much from those mistakes. I know how important trust, honesty, and communication are to a relationship. I know what it takes to compromise, and how in the heat of the moment in a fight it is easy to be selfish. I've learned how to be stay calm, figure out what is trying to be resolved by the disagreement, and ask the most simple questions... What do you need from me?... I also understand that sometimes people always aren't ready to talk about what's wrong. I know how to be compassionate towards someone's feelings, and how to give (often needed space/time. Along with bringing all the things that only time and experience bring. I know how to have fun no matter what were doing. For example, you drag me along shopping...I probably don't care about what you want to buy, but I came to spend time with you and to have fun. I will be cracking joke, teasing you, and making sure the time I spend with you is quality. And that applies to anything I do with the woman I care about. Bottom line, if you are THE right girl, and one day we share those three special words... it'll be something like you've never had and always wanted!
I'm just looking for someone to have fun with. Someone to go see movies with, go out to dinner, baseball/football games. Someone to text throughout the day and joke around with. I guess I just want a girl who can eventually become a best friend. I want to meet someone who is attractive and confident. Who has attitude, who can joke back and not take things personal. She HAS to be a little crazy too. Because if you're not a little crazy, then they're probably not fun. I want someone who isn't afraid to go where the wind takes us. Whether that be walking in the park, or knee deep in mud.. But, at the same time i don't want a stage 5 bat sh*t crazy!!!
Something easy going, dinner and whatevers clever. Football game, baseball game, go to the lake, shopping, the museum, a walk on the plaza, comedy club. Whatever sounds like fun that night!
