My name is Kevin, and I'm not a typical guy. I grew up excelling in both academics and athletics, but the characteristics that best define me are my love of knowledge and experiencing new things, and my caring demeanor towards others. Since I was a child I have always put others first in my book. For me personally, the greatest feeling in the world is how I feel when I know that I did something to bring pleasure to someone else. (Most especially for friends/family/significant others).
What has driven me in my life, is something that I was taught from a very young age: my Dad always told me "Always give 110% in everything you do." I might not always be sucesful, but I will always give it my all, and then some. That's how I treat life, whether it be academics, sports, relationships, etc.
I graduated college with a degree in Mechanical Engineering in 2011, and have been working in the real world for a little over 3 years now. I have a good job that I enjoy, a nice apartment with a couple of college buddies, and more bowling balls than one person should have. ;-P
I love playing sports and being active outside enjoying Mother Nature, but I can also go for a night in playing games or cuddling up to a good movie from time to time. I'm a country boy at heart, family and friends mean a lot to me and I am fortunate to have a very close-knit family and core group of friends. I am passionate about music, and admittedly if you are a good singer and/or play an instrument, you score bonus points in my book :) I played Trumpet in school, and sang in choirs, but my favorite musical adventure was singing bass in an a cappella group in college. (I was the guy who put the subwoofers to good use ;P haha).
I am a very optimistic person whom rarely gets stressed or angry. (Unless you hurt my friends or family... That, I will not stand for!) I enjoy learning new things and will try almost anything once. I'm generally a nice guy, and I'm living proof that chivalry is not dead. I'm not a fan of drama and playing games, so if that's how you roll, I'm not the guy for you. I'm honest and open, so if there is anything you would like to know, feel free to ask away.
I think that's enough to give you a general idea of what I'm about. If you want to know details, you'll have to ask ;-)
What I am looking for...
I am looking for a girl who is not afraid to explore her inner child: someone who likes to have fun and isn't afraid to try new things. I would like to find someone who enjoys being active, and takes good care of their body. A girl with a good head on her shoulders who knows what she wants is definitely an admiral quality. ps. I'm a sucker for a pretty smile :)
I won't know exactly what my soul mate would be like until I meet her, sometimes the greatest things in life catch you by surprise when you least expect them. If you think that we might get along well I'd love to hear from you!
For anyone who wants to know:
Myers Briggs --> ENFP
The following linked article describes me and my thought processes very well... with the exception that I do not need very much alone time: I would almost always choose to hang out with friends/family/significant other, than to spend time by myself.
