Henry Ford once said “My best friend is the one who brings out the best in me.”
And Jim Morrison said "A friend is someone who gives you total freedom to be yourself."
I love these quotes and I'm looking for someone just like that for love and companionship. I am looking to find that someone that I can bring out the best in them and let them be comfortable enough with me so they can be themselves (and the same goes for me!).
I also want to be successful on POF! So, according to them:
1. Talk about your hobbies: I have hobbies.
2. Talk about your goals and aspirations: I aspire to have goals! YEAH ME!!!
3. Talk about yourself and what makes you unique: I am myself and I'm unique!
4. Describe your taste in music: music is tasty and I love tasty music!
Now that we got that out of the way....I'm looking for what Henry Ford and Jim Morrison would be looking for in a woman that likes the same kind of funny things that I like, It would also be a huge plus if we were both able to make each other laugh so hard that we shoot milk (water, wine, beer, etc.) out of our noses while laughing once in a while.
I guess that I'm way different than average; I'm a happy guy that enjoys making others happy! For example, I started out as an Art Major and ended up in Biomedical Engineering. Basically, I'm versatile.
I love the world and I've worked very hard and I've also been lucky in life. Anyway, I've enjoyed many adventures thus far in this life and this is the point in my life when I find someone to share some new adventures. I have walked on the black sand beaches of Tahiti, I've built log cabins with basic tools in Northern Minnesota, I'm a pilot and I've owned my own small 4 seat airplane for many years and I've flown to many, many places. I've flown over hundreds of miles of barren tundra near Fairbanks, Alaska and I've flown all the way down to the windy runways of Key West, Florida. I've flown out past the Dry Tortugas into Cuban airspace. And I've been to most of the islands in the Caribbean, Mexico and I have been to Costa Rica countless times. But the airplane was lost to the Great Recession (I sold it with regret and since have gained a much greater appreciation for the gifts that I've been given in this life). I think that t would be nice at this time in my life to make new memories with a special someone that can appreciate that every technological advance is making life move ever faster (and farther apart) and we should really slow down a little more, meditate and seek out and enjoy all the good things around us.
So what are you like? What do you like? What do you like to do? Do you like the Daily Show or Stephen Colbert (the old Colbert Report)? Do you like any John Oliver, Samantha Bee, Amy Schumer, Lewis Black, Ellen, Jim Gaffigan, Louis CK, Bill Burr, Anthony Jeselnik and comedy stand up shows in general? Do you like Archer? Did you like Office Space? Airplane? Any Monty Python like the Holy Grail? Talladega Nights? Comic book stuff like Avengers? Xmen? Do you really like men and can live with and respect that men are VERY different than women?
You don't have to impress me- just send me a funny note, tell me a joke or anything really- just be yourself (I really don't need to meet a fake "you"). For some reason there are many (an unusual amount of) very similar profiles on here...to some degree outdoors, wine, live music, boats, beaches, travel, mountains, fires, BBQs, thunderstorms and Harleys come up an awful lot. So if I light some boats on fire on a mountain beach during a thunderstorm while having BBQ and rode a Harley around it while drinking some really good wine I think that I'd have a winner!!! It goes without saying that there would be live music playing during the event AND you'd have to travel to get there!
Send me a note right away if there is anything at all here that touches you or makes you feel something. I have found the best friendships began from the most unexpected circumstances.
About me, well I have green eyes and sandy blond/brown hair. I am built just like Arnold Schwarzenegger (in his prime and better looking) except totally different. I like to run, bike, swim and lift weights to tone up. Although I am presently in great physical shape, so I'm working on depreciation. I eat healthy stuff most of the time (at work they called me squirrel boy and offered me nuts and bark, and in return I loved them very much and was very sorry to have to shoot them during open hunting season for intolerant dunces). But I do indulge in normal food at times (I love pizza!). I like to laugh, tell jokes and have fun (this is actually true). I am NOT politically correct so I can actually laugh at things without worrying about offending spotted owls, sacred cows, republicans or democrats. But I did have to give up riding my bike in the pool. It was a great workout but I found it to be too hard on the bike and the pool filter.
If that was at least a little funny, you may keep reading. If you think that isn't funny you may not like my humor and I'd like you to leave now so you can find your clone elsewhere. But don't worry, the world is full of people like you. I like most all people (but I have made exceptions for the insane and robots and I really do not like insane robots-- think terminator). I also fear sock puppets (they are monsters!) and sharknados!
For books, science fiction rules as does personal development (like books on how to read books) and all books by Stephen Colbert. When I see films, I love to see films like The Matrix, Limitless, Star Trek, V for Vendetta, Watchmen, Prometheus (movies that make you think deep thoughts). Right now I love the new X-men, Passengers, the underrated "Edge of Tomorrow" with Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt, Deadpool, Ant Man, and Avengers (Capt America, etc) and where's my Wonder Woman?
I also love to listen to music...Music is also huge for me and I can find at least one good song in any type- from classical to hard rock to pop. But I mostly favor the "off the beaten path", not heard often, electric, eclectic and eccentric stuff. So classic Stones, Beatles, Roxy Music, Hendrix, Cash, Dylan to Sex Pistols, New Order, Black Keys, Depeche Mode to Daft Punk and beyond. I like all years and everything that piques my interest (so I love lots of strange stuff). I have a huge list that I'd love to share with you! I love to see live bands from a simple piano player in a bar or mall to gigantic outside summer venues like Summerfest -totally awesome!!!
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
This used to be first date so this is what I had: I can do it all or we can work together. So let me plan everything or show up for a quick coffee or drink and figure out something more complicated for later (or next time). I like to watch the sunset and the long sunsets of summer give you time to think and talk. Therefore, it would be rather nice to meet sooner in the year than later. The moon rise is also very cool when the timing is right.
Anywhere your mind will take you: Science, love, life, movies, books, and for TV, HBO still rules with Game of Thrones and WestWorld, both are really good! If you have not seen them and have some time to cuddle, they make a great binge weekend material (when the weather doesn't cooperate, etc.)
