Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Ahhh, the wonderful world of online dating? How many of you are
just as disenfranchised by this prospect as myself. It used to be
that when online dating first started it was a great means for
those of us who tended to be a bit socially awkward to meet.
Now as online life has grown exponentially, those same morons that
make meeting and dating in the real world challenging have found
their way online so that most woman are overly pessimistic with
each message they get because the idiots have taken over. Anyone
seen the documentary Idiocracy?
But, on that same token, for as much as the woman's inboxes are
overflowing with stupidity, these same women fail to take notice of
the challenges on the other side of the fence. Over here or the
male side of things, we have to wonder with each profile it is a
real one. Are we being catfished or baited toward some porno site
or cam site by those malicious people who would prey upon one's
loneliness just to make a buck?
That's why I am optimistically cautious when I make contact with a
woman on sites such as these. Because of the realities of bogus
profiles and fakes all the way around, I'm not going to make a
whole lot of effort. Furthermore, in the real world would some
random guy do much more than say hello, my name is? So many women
are so stand offish about short introductory emails that they fail
to consider the fact that the numbers show my chances of reply are
slim. Furthermore, do you really want me to drop a bogus line on
you just to lure you in like some buffoon in a bar? Why not have a
conversation so we can see what we are really about.
With all that said, filling these things in always seems rather
self indulgent. How much can you really learn about someone in such
a limited space? I much more prefer some decent conversation to
share and learn details about someone. According to that joke of a
website, eHarmony, and its personality test, I'm the proverbial
nice guy. According to that test, I'm the kind of nice guy that
most people doubt and wonder what my ulterior motive is, when there
is none. I'm the guy that will give you the shirt off my back. I'm
the guy that will stop my truck in the middle of an LA freeway to
chase a mother duck and her ducklings off the road so they don't
get crushed by passing cars - true story. I'm the kind of guy that
will give my shoes to a homeless guy because he needs them far more
than I do - another true story. So, if you can read past the angst
projected by my frustrations with online dating than maybe you'll
get to find out the kind of man I really am. Email me, chat with
me, or let's go out and talk for real and establish a genuine human
connection - learn about who I really am beyond the words I put
here in another useless dating profile.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Helping other's and trying to make the world a better place in my
own little way.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm multi-talented. I can fix your sink, hem your dress if need be,
fix your computer if time permits and still have an decent
conversation with you all the while.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My eyes. Oh, and the shiny bald head. Some friends told me recently
that I also come across as very "stand offish" when people first
meet me but, I'm actually not. I really am a nice and decent human
being, I swear! :-)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
My tastes in music have always leaned more toward the "metal"
variety. But, even though that's the bulk of what you'll find in my
collection, you also will find The Beatles, The Doors, Tori Amos,
hell even some Dan Le Sac vs. Scroobius Pip.
Movies, that's all over the place. But, I do have an affinity for,
dare I say, "chick flicks." But, you'll never get me to watch those
with you -- gotta do that in private to preserve my
TV, lately that's been quite a bit of foreign programming. I prefer
those because they tend to have a definitive story arch rather than
dragging something out endlessly until no one cares anymore. But,
of course, The Walking Dead. I have decided yet which is more
addictive, the books or the show.
Books, too many to list. Let's talk about it instead.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I actually find this one to be a rather ridiculous and illustrative
of our overly materialistic society. Things none of us can do
without, food, water, and a safe place to rest our head.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Society as a whole and the insane world we've created for
ourselves. I mean, we are supposed to be creatures of some
intelligence and yet we fail to use that gift in the least when it
comes to our society and daily lives. What troubles me even more is
that we have this deep rooted ability for compassion to be used to
govern our lives and could be used to make the world a better
place. But, most of ignore this baser instinct and instead think
only of number one.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Putting holes in the walls in my house or tackling some other home
remodeling project that has struck my fancy.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
How the hell is it going to be private if I type it into this lil'
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
LOL Truth be told, woman don't usually message men on these dating
sites, so this section probably shouldn't even be here on the male
profiles. But, if I do message you, I fully realize your inbox is
probably chaotic to say the least. So, I typically try to keep it
"short and sweet." This is simply meant to let you know that I'm
interested and if you are as well, let me know. Than we can proceed
to actually have a conversation and see if there is something there
worth exploring. I look forward to exploring with you. :-)
Furthermore, although the number of fake profiles on these sites
has diminished quite a bit in the last few years, I've found that
they have instead been replaced by pretentious women who seem to
only have profiles to boost their fragile egos. I could be wrong,
maybe it's just Texas women. But, basic common courtesy still
applies ladies, despite the fact that you are hidden behind a
I'm honest to a fault and I don't beat around the bush. You can't
handle honesty, you won't like me. For that matter, if you're going
to be so rude as to not even reply to a polite "hello." At least
grow a pair and say you're not interested.
On a final note, if you're not physically active nor take care of
yourself physically, it's not going to work. I learned first hand
from my father's passing very young the consequences of a sedentary
lifestyle - so I try to not walk the path that he did. But, what's
the point of getting into a potentially lifelong committed
relationship with someone if their lifespan will be so much shorter
because they don't make the same effort to take care of themselves.
