I have to say I am quite hesitant to continue this online dating stuff. The reality is, my experiences have pretty much mimicked some studies I have read - and that is the deck is stacked against guys. Why? Women are inundated with emails from d-bags who post shirtless selfies while perched on their motorcycle in front of their bathroom mirror. Said d-bag also can't be bothered to write a more meaningful message other than "Ur hot" or something equally neanderthal-like. So, messages from guys like me pretty much go unanswered while you only chose to engage the guys you email first. So, if I pop by your profile once or twice and don't email you, it might be just because I am exhausted by this whole process. And if there is an interest, just say hi.
I am also not going to continuously email you. If after a few emails you aren't comfortable exchanging phone numbers, or otherwise making plans to meet up, I'm checking out. This online-stuff doesn't really work unless you actually meet up. I "meet" an awful lot of text buddies.
I spent the last bunch of years working as a mechanical designer and going to college part-time for finance. I left the full-time gig to focus on the education stuff. My career was stalled, the job was very stressful and taking a toll on my health so I decided to bolt.
I'm also a drummer in a cover band. This is our guy's night out type thing - just our way to blow off steam.
Other spare time activities are transporting dogs for a couple of rescues and running.
The breed of furry folks I help:
....oh and killing bugs....
Don't ask me about TV shows; I don't watch them.
Rock and Roll is pretty much my default setting when it comes to music. I wish I could lie and say I like some band you've never heard of (and hell, some of the ones I read sound made up anyway), but I can't. The classics like Led Zeppelin and Van Halen will always be close to my heart. I do enjoy playing the one-hit wonders like OK-GO's Get Over It and Teenage Dirtbag by Wheatus.
Food: I like Italian and Mexican. Hate eggplant.
Music - love jamming with the guys & I dig my Sonor drums
A comfy pair of jeans
Chipotle - nothing beats a 3000 calorie burrito after a long run.
Why it is there are a lot of women who say they are looking for a nice guy but then chose not to walk that walk; they stick with the assholes. As it turns out ladies, there are still some nice guys out there; you just aren't open to dating them.
If you don't find that ironic and funny as hell, I'm not the guy for you. (Just for clarification - I've been engaged but never married. The divorce attorney just happens to live in my neighborhood.)
Nothing is a deal breaker but I would prefer:
You don't smoke, don't have kids, and are active. I would like a kid of my own (okay, this one is a deal breaker) and don't think I could be content being like my brother-in-law and being a step-dad. I ran 900 miles last year. If you can't walk up 4 flights of stairs, we probably won't get along.
Again, not a deal breaker but truthfully, tattoos are like bumper stickers on a Ferrari to me. I just don't get the appeal.
I find drunk people funny (even though I rarely drink to excess anymore) and stoned people absolutely annoying! If getting high is your thing, then rock on. But I don't want to date you.
Bonus points if you're a southern or mid-western girl. There is an intangible I can't really articulate other than to say, southern and mid-west girls just seem to be a lot more grounded and way more appreciative than others.
Also bonus points if you have an artistic streak.
I like to collaborate with people. Taking on a project is bonding. Painting a room. Making dinner. Doesn't matter other than being able to step back and say, "We did this together." That's important to me.
Please say something more than 'Hi" or "How are you?"
