Hi! My name is Jared. I'm 30 years old. I live in the city in a house by myself. I don't have any children, but I'd love to build a family one day. I work full time in a cubicle I couldn't care less about decorating. I also work part time at Radio Shack hooking my friends up and staying up on technology. I also occasionally bartend and/or work security at bars around the city. Sure, it sounds like a lot, but let's face it, I'm not slinging drugs or pushing pills and work is not certainly not all I do. I work to busy myself and because, well, it cost money to do everything I enjoy. Let me rethink that. I'm sticking with it.
I recently started Advocare in addition to eating right and I must say, cooking dinner for one is getting kinda old. It would be cool to meet a girl that's athletic and into sports, but one that keeps everything in balance. People that are obsessive about their appearance turn me off. You shouldn't have to work so hard to be beautiful, because trust me, a lot of women I know are guilty of this because they date shitty men that are too self-absorbed to tell their partner that they're beautiful. To steal a Drake line "Sweatpants, hair tie, chillin' with no makeup on. That's when you're the prettiest, I hope that you don't take it wrong." Now, that said, there is NOTHING ON THIS EARTH LIKE A HOT DRESS AND HEELS. I dress business casual daily and rock a t-shirt (hoodies FTW!), jeans and Jordans out and about. I think appearance is important and had forgotten about that for awhile.
I have a vibrant and active social network and I love social media. I can't stand spending time with someone that is glued to their phone, but when I'm alone... I flood Facebook and my friends crack up at my stream of consciousness posts.
Looking backwards, I did it right. I'm an Eagle Scout, a Marine infantry Veteran, and have both an Associate's degree in graphic design and a Bachelor's in multimedia development.
I don't have any known enemies and I have a 2-ton heart of gold. I go out of my way for my friends. I have been burnt like everyone else out there, but I'm not jaded. Not even guarded. You can't hurt me. You shouldn't try.
I'm not a hater. I'm happy as can be. The only thing that irritates me is that every time my head hits the pillow, my alarm clock goes off. It's weird. I can't stand racism, misogyny, homophobia, sexism or elitism. Politically, I'd consider myself fiscally conservative and socially liberal. Religiously, I'm a "red-letter Christian", meaning I care about Jesus and his words. The rest of the Bible is irrelevant to me. I think gay people should be allowed to be married, doctors should play a bigger role in the abortion debate than legislators, marijuana (and hemp) should be legal, and I believe our country is getting better everyday. I always protect myself and others and consider myself a shepherd of sorts.
I go to the same bar every Thursday night to love on my friends, who are mostly DJs and musicians.. I play softball on Sundays with an entirely different group of people. I also attend game nights, gaming conventions, and fancy myself a nerd. I want to get back into playing basketball as well as flag football. A different event every night of the week so long as I can muster the energy.
I like my nights in as well. Typically I stay in on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday nights. I'm not a partier, a raver, or a druggy. Yes, some of my friends are. It's just not my thing. I'm definitely no alcoholic, either and I'm not afraid of a little shrubbery. I'd like to quit smoking cigarettes but have yet to find the proper motivation to quit.
I own a sports blog with my best friend and have my own personal blog. I've been told I write beautifully. I just need to write more, I suppose. I'm no grammar Nazi, but if you can't type in fluent English, please keep it moving.
I enjoy browsing Reddit and actually have met some awesome-ass people off that site. I don't really go downtown unless it's to see the Pacers, Colts, Indians or to a convention. I don't party in Broad Ripple, either. I strictly go out to see a show and have a few drinks with friends. I'm not opposed to a shot of Fireball, though, and I got over Jager years ago.
