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. ;-)
