**If you dislike animals (cats especially), please refrain from
contacting me. I'm a huge animal lover and have two cats.
**If you are going to talk to me once, maybe twice, then just
vanish .. save us both time and effort, and just don't contact
Sorry for these clarifications, but it gets old to start to get to
talk to someone and try and get to know them, just to have them
vanish, or suddenly tell me they dislike animals, or cats in
*UPDATED 08JAN13* Well, let's see here ... I'm 34. I was born in
Tampa and grew up in the Brandon area. I am divorced, after an 11
year long marriage. I seem to get along with women a lot better
than men for some reason. People seem to think that I'm more in
tune with women, since I was mainly raised by my mother (God Bless
single mothers). Anyway, I'm into a variety of different things,
and I'm truly a mixed bag. I am always finding new and interesting
things to keep my short attention span at least somewhat centered.
If you would like to know more, please write and ask. I don't bite
.. well, at least not until I get to know you. LOL
What I’m doing with my life
I work as an administrative assistant at an engineering firm,
on-site at a construction project. It's a great job with great pay,
benefits and duties. But, it's not my passion and not where I want
to be forever. I'm currently working on going through testing and
getting everything lined up to go into the Law Enforcement academy
to become a cop again. Almost 10 years ago I was a deputy sheriff
in the local jail and want to go back into law enforcement, but on
the road this time. It's my true passion in life.
I’m really good at
Just about anything I put my mind to, usually. I'm sure there is a
good bit that I'm really good at, but to be honest, at this moment
.. I just can't seem to organize them into a list. Could be some
good conversation for later down the road though. ;)
The first things people usually notice about me
My blue eyes, smile, sarcasm/wit, mainly just my personality.
Everyone seems to notice something different when they meet me.
Should we meet, you'll have to tell me what you noticed. :)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Technical manuals, Biographies/Autobiographies, etc..
Movies: Action, Comedy, and based on true story movies. Love crime
and cop movies/shows.
Shows: I haven't been watching much TV, but when I do I usually
watch educational programing like: National Geographic Channel,
Discovery, Speed, Science, Bio, etc. I love to learn new
Music: I'm very eclectic and listen to all types of music, but my
favorites are rock, techno, country, and pop.
Food: Mexican (LOVE Taco Bus), pizza (Babes in Brandon), and a few
others, just depends on my mood. I've started cooking more recently
and I'm enjoying it immensely.
The six things I could never do without
Wow, really? If I HAD to name 6, I guess they would be:
I mean, those are basically the essentials to sustain life. LOL
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Wow, I think about a ton of stuff on any given day. I'm constantly
curious, engaged and interested in learning everything I can about,
well to be honest, anything and everything. I find that having a
well rounded knowledge base helps out in life. You just never know
when some "useless/random" fact may come back to help you out.
On a typical Friday night I am
Sometimes I'm at home, working around the house, cooking, spending
time with my cats, or just relaxing. Others, I'm out with friends
having a few drinks and enjoying life and great friendships. I'm
hoping to find more new adventures to go on in the near future.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
So personal, so soon? I mean, don't ya think we should at least get
to know each other first? ;) LOL Seriously .. this is something
that, with time and getting to know me, you WILL find out. :) But,
I can tell you this much: I have all my teeth, my hair, my sanity
(I think), and I'm a good guy. But shhh, don't tell anyone ..
you'll ruin my reputation. :)
You should message me if
You are a female that is drama free. You liked my profile. Suddenly
had this uncontrollable urge to flirt with me. Are just someone
that likes to have fun, make new friends, and see where life leads
them. I'm single and free after 11 years and am exploring new
places, doing new things and making new memories. Along the way,
I'm hoping to make a few new friends too. So, if you are looking
for friends, something more, etc. take a chance and hit me up!
