Who are YOU?
Ok heres where I try to not make myself sound like a complete toolfest.
I'm in my early thirties which I'm not totalllllly comfortable admitting yet, but i'm not ashamed enough to start lying with that whole "i'm 29" thing. Er wait..maybe I just lied. LOL. I'm a shorty...i'm 5'6" and I have short-man syndrome which means I might kick you in your kneecap! :). My body is ever-changing, and will probably be in a different state by the time you read this. We'll go for "average" today, but I have a very dedicated personal trainer that has been kicking my ass for the past two months, so hopefully I can change that little checkmark to "athletic" eventually LOL. My ethnicity seems to always come into question so i'll just clear that up. I mostly identify with "caucasian", but my father is Brazilian..so I have just enough of that in me that I get stopped in the airports haha. I was born in the states and I speak da'english.
I'm a Floridian thru and thru and would wear flips every day if I could. I consider Orlando my hometown as up until last year I had lived there since '99. I relocated to Atlanta, GA for work a year ago and have spent that year adjusting to my new home. I pretty much have my footing in the city and can get around. I am really lacking people/friends to get around it WITH. As for what i'm looking for, i'm pretty much open for suggestions. Though this is a dating site (that would be nice), I'm up for meeting people for friendships and buds that like someone to cook a mean ass meal for them every once in a while lol.
As for work, i'm a retail district manager with a pretty healthy territory. It keeps me busy thats for sure, but 90% of that is my own fault b/c i'm dedicated to be successful. Also with that whole lacking friends thing mentioned above I have made work a little more of a focus than it has to be (this is where you come in to correct this lol). I'm financially stable, I have a car, blah bah blah...so you dont have to worry about that.
Personaltiy-wise I consider myself pretty "straight-edge" with a little less Jesus (nothing against you man). hahaha What I mean by this is it doesn't take a pill, bottle, or a****for me to have a good time. Not that I haven't ever encountered those items in my past lol, but where i'm at right now its not on the priority list. I'm your guy-next-door typa thang. I guess you could say that with all of that I don't fit in with the stereotypical gay lifestyle. I'm not down with the club scene...in fact it causes me a bit of anxiety. I dont look like a ken doll and the cattiness for not achieving that can be left elsewhere.
For fun I like to do anything outdoors...hiking, camping, recently jogging, gardening (yes, gardening). I'm also big into arts/culture and enjoy seeing shows, museums, local sites. Love to travel...just recently came back from Aruba and am regretting making that return flight! Eventually I want to hit Europe, cannot believe i've made it this far and have yet to experience it. I'm a foodie...Love to try new stuff. My favorite meals are things you probably have never tried. I'm big into Indian and Thai food! I also like my food to pretty much be on fire, so if you can keep up with my spice level you have a big place in my heart.
Speaking of my heart, i'm a very emotional kinda guy. I personally dont think of it as a weakness (though some might). I'm just uncommonly kind I guess you could say. It doesn't take that much effort to be nice to people. The world is full of crazy, trashy people...try to be something different. I'm a hopeless romantic...would love to be swept off my feet one day. You know the black and white movie type of stuff. I want someone to be waiting for ME in the airport with the cardboard sign! I think about this a lot.
Movies...i like anything that can make me laugh. Especially inappropriate laughing lol. Mean Girls, White chicks, for i.e. I also like mystery movies Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil..."two tears in a bucket mutha****et" :)
Music...big into indie-rock/alternative/etc. etc., but like the food I listen to music you've probably never heard of. LOL that was very "hipster" of me.
Ok so I have to save SOMETHING for our date, so i'll just stop here and cross my fingers for you to write me :)
