I am an extremely social person who loves to meet new people, but I'm a little tired of the same old song and dance. Bars are a great time, but I'm usually caught up hanging out with my friends. I'm a big planner and usually have various adventures lined up several weeks in advance. What I look for in a girl is someone who can hold her own with my group and enjoys making new friends.
Music is a huge part of my life and I am the lead singer in my one-man karaoke shower band. I love checking out random country shows and cover bands and am always open to seeing someone new. Recently shows I've been to include Eric Church, Reckless Kelly, Randy Rogers Band, Brantley Gilbert, Flogging Molly, OAR, and Weezer. Also a huge fan of the Chicago cover band scene and enjoy seeing Mike Joe, 16 Candles, and Rod Tuffcurls and the Bench Press when I get the opportunity. I'm also a huge fan of Jimmy Buffett and recently went to Nashville to see him for the tenth time.
Food has recently become a big hobby of mine and I love to try and replicate meals I find in restaurants. Over the years I've collected a couple different grills and a smoker and typically spend many hours in the yard cooking outside. I'm willing to try anything once and have slowly been learning all the things I thought were gross as a kid can actually be quite good. I'm turning into a bit of a coffee snob (this is a new thing for me) and want to learn how to roast my own beans some day.
I consider myself lucky to live in this city and try to take advantage of what it has to offer. That being said, there is so much I have yet to accomplish. I'm looking for someone willing to play tourist and check out some of the different tours, museums, and neighborhoods around town, and then go meet up with some friends somewhere.
Strong-willed and confident women attract me. Someone who will challenge and inspire me to become a better person. I love to try new things and look forward to what you can bring to the table!
