Hey y'all, I'm a Southern, Generation Y, Gentleman who is wondering where all the chivalry and class has gone in this country. There was a time when men would open doors and treat women with respect and now I see more and more men cut corners and blatantly treat women like they are less... This trend needs to stopped. Chivalry sure as hell ain't dead, not where I'm from at least. So to all the 20-something women who are constantly bemoaning the state of man, as much as I hate to say it, you're right. Us fellas have some major work to do in the respect department and I plan on being an impetus to help change it.
I am 26 years old and just finished my Bachelors of Music at Oklahoma City University in 2012. I am really into musical theatre and some opera, but music in general is a huge passion of mine. I am really excited to see where life takes me in the world of music. I'm ready to take risks to catch my dream.
I really have no fear about this path I have chosen, I am confident and know that hard work will help me be successful. I am really friendly, love to chat with people, and above all I am respectful. My parents brought me up to respect people's beliefs even if they differ 100% from mine, I will always give you the time of day, because you're worth it. I love to laugh, smile, sing, and listen to music.
I also enjoy anything NEW ORLEANS. I was born there and will most likely end up there in the long term. I'm a huge saints fan and love fantasy sports. I am always down to go out and throw the football/ hit some golf balls! I work out a lot, because my career path has very defined physical demands and types that I need to fit. In a superficial world I chose one of the most shallow career paths(outside of modeling) possible, but when you love something you must embrace the good and bad.
I do crazy things like meditate daily and take acting classes where we roll around on the ground and delve deep inside our emotional history. It's a fun fun journey to really let go and act. I'm living my life to the fullest each day and I am a huge proponent of positive thinking and kindness.
Certain things are deal breakers with me. Smoking cigarettes and only wanting to go out and drink every single night are huge turn-offs for me. I know... I lived in NOLA, but I take my body, voice, and career EXTREMELY seriously. If I can't perform at a high level in rehearsal because my voice is shot from raging it's on to the next person. Don't take this to mean that I never go out, I just make sure I plan out when I can rage and when I can't. The biggest pet peeve for me is being a huge gossiper and a negative person, I don't want it, I don't need it and I will not let those people bring me down to their level. A lot of people make fun of others or judge them because they are in fact not comfortable with themselves and only seek to bring them down to their level...But what does that truly reward you with? A fake sense of being better than that person.
I'm looking for someone who shares a passion in life. Enjoys it, doesn't judge every step she makes, but accepts it. I have really realized life is about enjoying the minor imperfections of others and really connecting with someone (which is ironic that I am typing this). I love to have conversations and I pride myself in being able to hold a deep conversation, it would be nice if you did too! I am looking for a girl who is intellectual, understanding, honest, and has a positive outlook on life. I would love someone who respects my career path and understand the emotional toll it can take on someone. I have found that a support system, be it your family or a significant other is immensely important, we can pretend that we can do everything ourselves, but you need someone to fall back on every now and then.
One thing I pride myself on is confidence. In my career that determines whether or not you book a job, I am not cocky, but I am damn sure of my talents and abilities and I will at the drop of the hat show them off. If you're looking for a genuinely nice guy who respects people and wants more than a superficial relationship, feel free to message me. I am ALWAYS down to talk to someone new, the hardest step to take in life is the first one.
Chase your dreams and Carpe Diem. Do what you love and love what you do! Be brave, be honest, and above all be yourself!
