I've been in Akron my whole life. I am a graduate of Kent State University and have Bachelors of Science in both Technology and Aeronautical Studies. Since graduation I've worked in a plastic extrusion shop where I work in maintenance, meaning I spend my day fixing things and solving problems. And lots of paperwork. Like my job I spend my personal life working on things; I've done a lot of work on my house and my trucks. I also like going to concerts and car shows, although without anybody to go with I haven't been to as many as I'd like. I like traveling too, something I'm getting back to after not having the time/money for some time.
Politically I'm pretty moderate but I do have definite opinions on the issues. If I could be described by any label I guess Libertarian would work. I don't discriminate because of someone's beliefs, and I don't get along well with people that do. I don't like to tell people what to do and I don't like being told what to do. I'm extremely easy going, and I can get along with almost anyone. I definitely have a sense of humor too; hang around me enough and you'll hear terrible puns and off color jokes. I'm not religious but I'm not anti-religion either, I'm comfortable in knowing that there's no way for me to know what's outside the life I can see.
For a potential partner, I have preferences but I'm open to meet anybody. Even if I'm totally incompatible with someone on a romantic level it's still nice to have new friends. I'm the kind of person that has a handful of close friends and everyone else are acquaintances. I'm very old fashioned; I like to take things slow and not jump in too fast. It seems that a lot of women I've dated thought I was going too slow, but I promise that I'm not losing interest in such a case. I strongly believe that once I've moved past a point where the other is probably getting attached that honesty and openness are most important, and if I'm in any way unhappy I will say something. I definitely don't play games at all. I also don't do hook ups, at all, ever. I think (hope) that romantic would be a good descriptor for me. I seem to have a lower sex drive than most people; I'm happier snuggling up on the couch and watching TV than gratuitous making out.
I'm looking for someone like me who wants to spend some time together and just enjoy each other's company. Bonus points for someone like me that hasn't slept around much, hasn't been married, or has kids yet. I know that's rare for people my age so don't be scared off if it's not you. I'm hoping to meet someone to ultimately get married to. I'm not decided on kids, work tires me out and they're a lot of work, but I love kids and I really think I'd enjoy raising them. I'm also a very shy/introverted person so I don't enjoy noisy or crowded places like bars. I was never into partying.
I first looked at this section after being gone so long and thought I'd shorten it. Well... I swear I'm good at most things I do. I just tend to be long winded.
I am giving, knowledgeable, and open minded
