Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm Brad. I'm 30 years old and live in Knoxville and I like....
Wait. That started out like a creepy matchmaker video profile,
didn't it? Let's go again...
My name is Brad and I'm just starting to get back out there and
seeing what happens. As my profile says I'm an "Underwater Basket
Weaver" but I've recently had to give that up because of the
recession. Who knew the crafts market would fall so harshly? So,
just for security's sake I've landed firmly in the insurance field
and so far I'm really liking it.
I tend to have a sarcastic sense of humor and a very curious mind.
I was the kid who got in trouble for always asking why? Which only
made me ask "Why?" again. Ugh, it was a vicious cycle growing up.
However, as a result I have amassed a plethora of useless
knowledge. It also has enabled me to use words like "plethora"
instead of "alot". Plus, it has made me handy in the middle of a
round of Jeopardy. Sadly, that has yet to have any real world
testing. I'm still waiting for all those hours reading Wikipedia to
pay off. Fingers crossed!
I discovered my love of traveling when I was younger and still love
spontaneous weekend trips to this day. Sometimes you can land in
the best destinations when you don't really have a destination in
mind. Usually that leads to interesting state parks and/or museums
which in turn leads to more useless knowledge to stow away.... You
ever notice that most tourist attractions are full of "Fun Fact"
signs? Then you come back home expecting your friends to be like
"Wow, That's interesting. I didn't know that". Instead you just end
up saying "Nevermind, you had to be there". Regardless, I love to
get away just for the sake of getting away. I don't need much more
of a reason than that.
I'm also finding myself increasingly interested in taking part in
community events. The "Color Me Rad 5K" run was really cool. I
mean, how else would you like to spend a Saturday morning besides
getting brightly colored dye thrown at you while you run? I know,
right? You ever look at those pictures on Facebook of groups of
people having fun at get-togethers and think you're boring? Yeah,
me either. Still, I am out to be more active just so I can help a
friend become more active as well. My own community outreach
program. See? Brad cares.
So, I'm at the risk of having too long of a profile. So, if you
even cracked a smile at any of this nonsense then you may want to
message me. If nothing else we can arbitrarily exchange random
stories about the pursuit of happiness. Wait... Even if you didn't
crack a smile you still may want to message me because you
seriously need to smile.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
What am I really good at? That is such an open-ended question and
one that's really hard to answer on the spot through text on a
website. Anyone agree?
I can say that I am "good" at music
. That sounded grammatically
incorrect but oh well. I've developed a great passion for music
throughout more than 12 years of playing guitar and I feel that I
take it quite seriously. I have near perfect pitch which sounds
great but it sometimes can be a curse since everything I hear I am
figuring out the key etc. in my head. This includes songs on the
radio to commercial jingles. "ba da.. Priceline Negotiator".. Ahh,
get out of my head!
I also feel I'm an excellent writer. Excellent writer. Yeah,
excellent writer. Sorry, Rainman came out to play. Seriously
though, I feel that I can express myself better than most and I am
quite skilled at putting mind to paper.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
What do people notice first about me? Is this a physical question
I would say people notice that I have a very inquisitive
personality almost immediately. I rarely take things at face value
and I like to know the "story" behind it all. I don't question
everything but I do wonder about everything. I was one of those
kids who wanted to know why the sky was blue and what caused the
tides. I'm still like that which has led to having a wealth of
useless general knowledge stored in my head.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I am quite particular about books, movies and music. For instance I
don't like a plot handed to me on a silver platter. I like a goofy
comedy as much as the next person but I would rather have my
attention kept with interesting twists and turns. I like those
moments where you're like "Oh... Now I get it".
I feel that way even more about music. I like lyrics that can be
taken more than one way and may mean something different to
different people. I also enjoy the conversations you can have about
the meaning of a song or a movie.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Six things I could never do without? I'm not that needy but here
Music In General
Healthy relationships (Both friends and dating)
(I find myself at a loss for a sixth one now.. Stay tuned)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What a strange question... I spend alot of time thinking about
whatever needs thinking about at that moment. I mean who spends an
abnormal amount of time thinking about one particular thing over
another? Yeah, I spend gratuitous amounts of time thinking of
Einstein's Theory Of Relativity. What about you?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I am either going out to eat or somewhere seeing a band. Whenever
possible I would prefer to be in the process of getting out of
Knoxville for a spontaneous weekend trip.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
If I admitted something private on here then it would no longer be
private now would it? I'm an open book but I would rather save the
quirky characteristics about myself for someone who is interested
in hearing them. Not the general public.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You should message me if you're tired of having guys play games
with you. I have no desire to get to know someone just to turn
around and act like I'm not interested. I have never understood the
motivation for people to do that.
Life is much too short to waste time playing mind games and never
allowing yourself to actually get to know someone.
Anyone else feel the same way?
