One should probably never take anything I say seriously at first glance. Remember that. I'm not afraid to say what's on my mind, plus I joke a lot and it's not always obvious. No, I don't REALLY think your 3 year old's drawing is horrible and lacks accurate proportion and realism. ...but maybe his college fund would be more wisely spent on a nice vacation. Just throwin' that out there. Don't worry, I'm still kidding. (I'm not)
I love to be around people. That probably sums up a good deal about why I've grown up the way I have. I love to meet new people, hear what people think about different things, the different WAYS you think, what lights you up, what gets your blood'ah boilin', etc, etc... I also tirelessly like to use my unique sense of humor to catch you off guard and make you laugh when least expected (or try to), and am usually pretty okay at it. I even love the idiom. "Make" ..as if you have no choice... muahahahahaaaa, brilliant!! :)
My friends (and colleagues, believe it or not) tell me I'm an always calm, roll with it kind of person, and am good at making people feel good about things (though that's not always how I feel in my head ;) but sshh!). That's kind of funny to me, because I'm pretty much brutally honest about everything. I don't know how I get away with it. I'm not shy, I pretty much never get nervous, and I have nooo problem walking up to a crowd of you and all your pretty little friends and starting up a fun, friendly conversation with all of you with no agenda necessary. I'm also really good at reading people. If you're a genuine person, I can connect with you in a heartbeat.
I'm confident in, and thankful for, where I've made it so far in my personal journey, but am still always looking daily for what I can improve about myself and what surrounds me. I love learning, keeping in or improving my shape and stimulating my being. I have found that if you're not in shape and are not passionate about taking care of your mind and your body, dating me is going to be an uphill battle for you. If I'm gonna stop dating whoever I want for one woman to be by my side, I want her to have a good chance of living as long as me because she knows how to and cares enough to work hard on taking care of herself. No exceptions there. I do think though that every once in a while we've got to just chill out, relax and stop thinking, as hard as that may be in this world. It's good for the mind and soul.
Hey, here's an interesting fact: I talk to myself. Yep. Helps me think. "What a catch," you must be thinking. My late grandmother did use to say though, "It's okay to talk to yourself; it's okay to ask yourself questions, and it's even okay to answer them... as long as you don't go, 'Huh?'"
Moving on! -- Fun Jon facts:
-I have a kinda big, awesome, close family that I drink and grill with by a pool or a fire regularly.
-People, movies and music make up a big part of my life.
-I'm really a 400 pound black man with awesome photoshopping skills.
-I can surgically rock your face off on three different instruments. At the same time. On a unicycle. Drunk.
-I sometimes compulsively lie about unicycles and alcohol. ...and about being a 400 pound black man. At the same time. On a unicycle. Black.
-As you can clearly see, I take writing an online profile about myself very seriously. Very, very seriously. SShhh! I'm typing.
-My friends, each one in their own individual way, are the backbone that keeps me standing tall, and I try my best to return the favor.
-There are no strangers. There are friends, and friends I haven't met yet. Also, there are d***s. You know who I'm talkin' about.
-At any given time, it will have been less than a month since I've last danced alone to loud music like a blissfully happy, crazed, lobotomized Olympian.
-It takes a lot to gain my trust and favor, though with that trust and favor comes unshakable loyalty and a very capable ever helping hand.
-I'm immune to pretty batting eyelashes and pouty lips.
-I get a dirty little pleasure from scaring the poop out of my friends and girlfriends around corners. I think in Texas, this is considered fair warning. So pack spare undies. Spundies!
