. PLEASE don't contact me if you're just looking for "casual dating." to me that means you just want to hook up and that's not what im looking for. at all. if you can't respect my wishes then either expect no response from me if you do decide to contact me anyway or me to be not very nice. im putting it out there, read my profile, use your brain, it's not hard..etc. also, i have a tendency to date a couple of years older. ive dated a couple of people who are a few years younger, like 23-25 but its not really ideal for me.no teenagers (18-20), thats just weird, an age gap like that will not work at all. not sorry. also, no long distance. im not willing to try, dont ask, yes ive done it and it doesn't work at all. lastly, please have all of your teeth. take care of them, it doesnt matter if they're not straight, but like, no black teeth. it really bothers me. a lot. it's basic hygiene, no girl wants to kiss a guy with missing/black teeth, unless they themselves have missing or black teeth. i hate that i even have to say this, but apparently, i do.
i'm quirky. i have a TON of weird stories that have happened to me in real life. they're so odd that i couldn't make them up even if i wanted to.if i get comfortable enough around you i might tell you them. they're funny now that the event is over and done with and time has passed, but i probably wanted to cry at the time, but you know, couldn't for whatever reason (mostly being that a girl just sitting there crying over something thats actually really funny is not socially acceptable.)
i work for a radio station in poughkeepsie. a cluster of them actually. most "well known" (i suppose) is wrwd. it's alright, im not a dj, i work on the promotions/road crew team. you mightve seen me out on the road at businesses or a fair or the walkway over the hudson (one sunday a month.) its a decent gig, it beats the hell out of retail, so im not gonna leave anytime soon.
yes, ive got tattoos. quite a few. actually a lot (about 20, or so). they're not constantly on view for the world to see. i did this on purpose, for employment purposes. i like them, i dont have a tramp stamp, (i will NEVER have a tramp stamp). none on my arms, or back, unless you count like, ribcage, a tiny bit. i like them i dont really care if you do, if it's a deal breaker, then, that's that. i never thought id have tattoos until a tragedy at college happened and my very first tattoo is a memorial to that person, and it just kinda grew from there. i am not like one of the girls you see on jersey shore and i'll never be like that, they're so fake.
music wise-always listening to the gaslight anthem station on pandora. always.
im a little shy (best guy friend calls it awkward but endearing) give me a chance to warm up to you. im good at hiding it. ive dated but havent been in a real relationship for 5 years. its just starting to be funny now, but also pretty sad. im not desperate, actually super picky. ive been alone for so long that it doesnt matter that much at this point, but it'd still be nice to have someone.
alright, ive said enough, lets stop hiding behind technology and actually meet face to face.

not a movie, anything else should be good.
**if you can make me legit laugh, instead of the polite laugh i usually have to do, you're golden.
