I have two careers. In one I'm a recording engineer and a musician and in the other I'm a senior-level IT guy. Basically, my ducks are in a row; my long-term goals and ambitions are being realized as you read these words. It took a lot of effort to get into this position. I'm optimistic and driven, and when things don't go the way I envisioned, I put in the hard work to set them right. This applies to how I handle relationships, too. As long as I believe there is more to be done, I will soldier on.
In addition to work and career stuff, I have a lot of hobbies. Typical ones like going out to eat and trying new restaurants, watching TV series / movies / video games, and participating in outdoor activities like biking, running, and kayaking, but I also have a few rarer hobbies like attempting to cook at a professional level, analyzing music using theory, and photographing events and landscapes.
I also play guitar, which naturally is one of the most cliche instruments a guy can write about playing in a dating profile, but the difference is, I can really play; I know more than four chords. I can also sing. I'm kind of shy about it, but the few people who have heard me have been impressed. Maybe they were biased, but it was still flattering. Play your cards right and you might hear my lovely music yourself.
Finally, I'm kind of a fitness buff. I'm no bodybuilder, but I like to exercise. My goal is to feel like I'm at peak physical condition at all times and I certainly am at the moment. It would be amazing to find someone else who shares my interest in staying fit and active.
That's all for now. Au revoir!
P. S. It is rare for me to send messages. I only send them if I am actually interested, and they become fewer and fewer in number as I discover more people who are only signed up to sites like these for narcissistic reasons. One woman confirmed my suspicions when she wrote back, "I'm pretty much just on here for an ego boost." She was listed as looking for a long-term relationship. So, please feel free to send me the first message, wink, or like. I will not hold it against you and I promise to be polite and responsive in return.
