First & foremost, I am a gentleman. (Don't be fooled by all of my tattoos...that's just a common misconception)
In truth, I thank my parents every day for bringing up my siblings & I the way they did.
My family means the world to me, and we are all very close. Needless to say, I am very family oriented.
My close friends would describe me as a very honest, genuine, loyal, passionate, unique, interesting, & caring individual...with the word "goofball" thrown in there somewhere. (I have a fantastic sense of humor!)
I'm a pretty easygoing person. I can get along with just about anyone. I'm also very outgoing...I can walk into a place not knowing anyone, and make new friends.
I have a good head on my shoulders...I'm confident, but not cocky (there's a distinct difference).
I am extremely humble, and I am beyond thankful for everything that I have in my life.
I am also extremely driven, and a firm believer that hard work pays off.
I love working with my hands...And a little manual labor has never bothered me (I worked a blue collar manual labor job for years before switching to an office job)
But life wouldn't be fully enjoyable if you weren't able to relax every now & then...and when time allows, I love that too.
I'm a hopeless romantic, & I'm not ashamed of admitting that.
I have a dorky/nerdy side...and I'm not ashamed of admitting that either.
I'll always be up for an adventure. The more unique or spontaneous, the better!
I love being outdoors! Fishing, hiking, camping, etc... As long as I'm taking advantage of a nice day, I'm happy.
I'm a big kid at heart, and I love to make people laugh or smile, but can be an adult when I need to be.
I can be sarcastic, but not to the point where it's brutal.
I'm my own worst critic...it's what keeps me driven to be the best that I can be.
I love a good dive bar with a decent jukebox & a pool table.
I love the smell of a tattoo parlor...and in turn, I enjoy getting tattooed.
When people ask me if they hurt, I say "yes."
When they ask me if I regret them, I say "no."
And when they ask me if I know what they'll look like when I'm 80, I say "awesome."
So why am I on here?
There comes a point in your life where you realize that meeting people in bars becomes tiresome. So, with a little coaxing from family & friends, here I am.
Essentially, I'm looking for my other half. My "partner in crime", if you will.
I don't just want to date someone for the sake of dating...I want to find my best friend. Someone to share my exciting life with...and who would want to share their life with me as well. So I'm here because, well, you never really know what life will throw at you.
If you would like to know anything else about me, just ask!
