First thing is first, this is a LONG self summary. I don't think anyone's chances of finding someone compatible by saying 2 sentences is very high. So if you're not down for a long read... You came to the wrong guys profile haha.
I've met some nice young women online but nothing that has turned into something greater. And instead of talking about personality traits like "being genuinely nice" I'm going to list interests and things that I like/hopefully you like and if a good amount of them match up (doesn't have to be 100%) maybe you should email me and we can talk, while I don't think having things in common is the only thing that matters by far, I do think it helps you be "attracted" to someone (not physically) as someone can be the nicest person ever, yet if you don't share similar interests you'll have nothing to talk about/do. If nothing else it's a good ice breaker and gives you stuff to actually talk about or do TO get to know the person.
So here goes. These are things I do/enjoy, or hope/am ok with you doing/having/enjoying etc, again doesn't have to match up 100%.
Nerd/dork, not a dweeb but definitely like things like super heroes, sci-fi/fantasy movies, video games, etc.
Have a tattoo(s), I currently have one but am probably going to get a couple more at some point, I find tattoos very attractive on girls, but if you don't have any that's fine too of course.
Video games! I actually rarely have time for them these days, but if you enjoy video games/dont mind if I play them sometimes/are willing to play them with me then huge + for you.
Active/outdoorsy, I spend a lot of my free time (and a lot of time working) outdoors and being active, and it would be nice if you are too, sorry but I'm not really into homebodies and laziness. I like hiking, camping, fishing, the beach, kayaking (both of those last two usually involve fishing for me), photography, shooting at the gun range, pretty much anything outdoorsy and fun and I'm probably down.
Rock'n Roll! my favorite genre of music and almost entirely what I listen to, I listen mostly to a variety of types of rock, I do have the occasional hip-hop/rap or reggae song or whatever else but it's almost entirely rock. You don't have to only like rock, but if you don't mind me mostly playing/can sing along with me to everything from Metallica and ACDC to Fallout Boy and Foster the People then that'd be great.
Movies! I mostly like action, sci-fi/fantasy, comedy, thriller types so if you like movies other than just dramas and chick flicks that'd be preferable, though I am of course willing to watch the occasional chick flick with the right company ;)
TV shows! Game of thrones!!!!!, south park, dexter, firefly, agents of shield, walking dead, band of brothers, stargate universe, arrow, archer, supernatural, these are some of the types of shows I enjoy, watch them with me?
Sex... everyone likes it, not everyone likes it the same. And while I'm NOT on here looking to "hook up" sex is a healthy and necessary part of any relationship that's going to last more than a few dates. I don't like boring sex, just getting a tiny bit of oral then moving on to intercourse in the missionary position or MAYBE one other position = boring. I'm fairly kinky and I like to mix it up. I do NOT want to and will NOT try to get in your pants in the first few dates, I'm OK having sex after a few dates (like 3-5) but I'm also totally fine waiting longer than that if that's how you feel, I'll judge based off your hints/signals/body language/whatever. Pleasing my partner is extremely important to me, in my view the more my partner gets off the more she'll want to do it, and hence the more I'll get off and it's a win win! I've been told I should tell every guy that theory because many of them just care about getting off themselves and don't pay enough heed to their partners needs, that is not me. So please like sex to be interesting/fun and not just a chore and be willing to put in the effort to please as much as be pleased.
I don't play "the game" when it comes to dating (or friends). It's stupid and juvenile, I believe in being upfront and honest (but tactful and polite), let's be adults about things.
Non-smoker/no drugs! I don't smoke, and I dislike the smell/taste very much, it's a huge turnoff to be kissing someone who tastes like an ashtray. Also I don't do any drugs, prefer if you don't do any either, though I could probably get over the occasional 420.
Piercings! I don't have any, but don't mind if you do whether it's just a couple in your ears, or several all over, as long as you aren't just covered in metal and you don't have your nose linked to your ears and lips via a chain or something crazy.
Thin/fit, just a fact physical attraction is necessary in a relationship. I'm not a model, and you don't have to be either, but please be thin or fit as I am both, I'm very active, and work out often, I'm naturally thin and my body stays that way but it's important to me to also do physical exercise to remain in shape not just to not be fat.
I've played a variety of sports growing up including baseball, soccer, indoor soccer, and paintball, if you have too then we'll have something else to talk about.
Intelligent/smart! Doesn't necessarily mean highly educated, I don't require that someone I date be going to or have gone to college or anything, if you do/did then great! But if not it's fine, I'd rather date a smart person with limited knowledge on things than a dumb person with lots of knowledge. I myself have not done any schooling past high school, but I feel confident in saying I'm smarter than people I've known who went to/graduated from college.
Long term goals! This is for both personal/family stuff and for work. You don't have to be rich, or know exactly where you're going, but know that you want to do more than flipping burgers (though if that's what you do that's fine of course, as long as you don't want to be doing that still in 20 years). I myself have goals and am working on them, but who knows when they will come to fruition. As for the family part, I don't date just to date, I'm HOPING to eventually meet "the one" (even though out of 7billion people on earth there's probably about a million people that could be "the one" for any of us) and some day I want to be married and have kids, so if you're like "ew marriage, ew kids" then there's probably no point in us dating.
Sarcasm, I'm very sarcastic once you get to know me, sometimes my best friends and I have entire conversations in sarcasm and sometimes I'm so sarcastic I can't even tell if I'm being sarcastic anymore. If you can handle that/reciprocate it then we'll get along great.
On top of all that, communication, honesty, respect, loyalty and trust are things I feel are critical in a relationship, and not just one or two of those things but all of them, so I'm hoping to meet someone who is worthy of all that as well as has other things in common that I listed.
Ok I could go on like this forever but I think that should be good for now... lol. If you have a good % of those things in common with me then you should probably send me an email and see if we're both interested. Please tell me a bit about yourself, not just like "hey I liked your profile", write a paragraph or two about yourself and hit me up with a question or two that you have about me. I'm NOT looking for endless emails/chit chat online, been there done that. I'm looking to meet REAL people in REAL life, maybe it will be for coffee ONE time, maybe we'll end up seeing each other for a long time, you'll never know unless you meet someone and give it a chance. If you've read this far then you get 10 points just for that and have something in common with me already! (Actually reading peoples entire profiles and not just skipping to the end or looking at photos only)
