I am not looking for some kind of fling. I am ready to start a nice relationship. With that said, I also am not obsessed that this has to be "the one" either. Let's take things as they come and see where this goes.
I guess I am kind of like a mutt when it comes to my interests...I am into a lot of different things. I enjoy music, movies, and am a big sports fan. I pull for all the local teams (Bucs, Rays, Lightning, and Bulls) and try to attend several games a year.
I also enjoy going to concerts, playing pool, bowling, karaoke, the beach (although I don't go nearly as much as I'd like), and just hanging out with friends doing whatever. I am not really a big club or bar kind of guy. I don't mind going every once and a while to let loose, have some drinks or dance, but I am definitely not a regular.
While I enjoy going out, I can have just as much fun staying in. I am totally content curled up on the couch/bed watching a game, movie, or TV show (especially if I am sharing that time with someone special).
I have a bit of a geeky side. I still enjoy reading comic books and playing the occasional video game; at the same time, I don't play them all day and let them control my life. I am also a big Star Wars fan...but not obsessed.
While I'd like the person I am with to have some similar interests, it's also great to have different interests. It allows me to experience new and interesting things.
I truly value the time spent with the person I care about. With that said, I think it's healthy if we both have our own lives where we can enjoy our time together as well as on our own. I know some people that won't let their significant other do anything unless they are there with them and I think that is unhealthy.
I used to work nights and weekends and that made it really hard to meet someone. My schedule has changed a bit now and while I still work nights, I finally have weekends off. I had sworn off dating websites after a couple of bad experiences, but a couple of friends have had some success, so I figured it wouldn't hurt to give it another try.
If you can handle the fact that I am an honest, caring, geeky sports fan who likes to watch/attend games, reads comic books, enjoys Star Wars, and plays an occasional video game...read on. If not, you should probably move on to a guy who isn't as cool as me. ;-)
I really enjoy movies. My favorite movie of all time has to be the Star Wars movies. I prefer the original trilogy, but enjoyed the newer ones as well. Some of my other favorites include: Airplane, Aliens, Avatar, Black Hawk Down, Bull Durham, Devil's Advocate, Excalibur, Farris Bueller's Day Off, Field of Dreams, Full Metal Jacket, Good Will Hunting, Goonies, Jerry McGuire, Inception, Last Samurai, Lord of the Rings, Matrix, The Natural, Princess Bride, Rudy, Shawshank Redemption, Something About Marry, Spiderman, Star Wars, Terminator, Top Gun, and Zombieland. Ok...so I got carried away.
I am also a huge music fan. I would have to say I am more of a rock/alternative fan than anything else, but I have a lot of everything in my collection including a little rap and country. Some of my favorite artists include Pearl Jam, Guns N' Roses, AC/DC, Aerosmith, Matchbox 20, Metallica, Green Day, Linkin Park, Queen, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Boyz II Men. I recently started going to more concerts and that is something that I hope to continue doing.
I am not a tough man to please when it comes to food. I pretty much will try anything once. I do like pizza, Italian, Mexican, and Chinese food. I recently have become a big fan of Chipotle. The only thing I am not really a fan of is meat on the bone...although I do occasionally like wings.
