Online dating as well as real dating certainly isn't the easiest thing in the world. I have done it for a while without that much luck. However I have learned that the best policy when dealing with any kind of relationships are true honesty right from the start, which is why I am not going to hold back, simply to put all the cards on the table and perhaps even being a bit personal.
I'm born and raised in Denmark, came to the US in my Early/Mid 20's Studied acting/filmmaking like a lot of other people you might know around here. I worked for a few years as an Actor/Stuntman and a Fitness model. It all might sound very exotic and glamorous, but with barely any income while getting older, suddenly some of the fun starts to fade.
I have no regrets at all, great memories and a time I will always remember and treasure.
I would describe myself as a dreamer in my 20's and more of a realist in my 30's.
Back in Denmark, I was in the military for a while, but also worked with handicapped and mentally disturbed children.
When I finally arrived in the US which was a dream of mine since the age of 15! I had no papers, no Social Security number, no place to live, no job, didn't know anybody and had less than $200 in my pockets. - Only a tourist visa that was good for 90 days, in which I was not allowed to work. "Welcome to America, and good luck kid"
While in school (Years ago) I lived and worked for a while at a hostel on Hollywood blvd. I also started working as a window cleaner for $5 an hour. Not much, but enough to survive, and eventually I started getting some of my own accounts and started my own little window cleaning business while still pursuing the dream in Hollywood.
One reason I got out of the acting thing, was the fact that I got tired of working with and for other people, constantly having to please people, kissing booty so to say and not really being myself. I realized that working for myself was the ultimate answer that I was looking for.
I already had knowledge and experience with a squeegee and knew that there was a huge potential marked out there in the glass business. A very important lesson I learned, was "It's not always about what you want in life, it's also about finding a job where there is a big demand and trying to fill that" - For a long time while "Living the dream" AKA. Pursuing a career in acting, I had to go to bed hungry. - Everything has it's price in this world.
Since then I have expanded my business, and today I/We (Have a crew under my belt now) service over 100 commercial accounts on a regular basis, and plenty of residential work as well, mostly for upscale clientele in West Hollywood and the Beverly Hills area. I have half a dozen stores on Rodeo Drive alone, working with names and businesses that you girls can't wait to shop in. ;)
Anyway, it's quite rewarding working for yourself, but I have also put a lot of time in to it. "The world meets nobody halfway"
I still have a long way to go, no doubt!
In fact I might as well share my "Master-plan" with you! I'm planning on more expansion, so that I in maybe 5-7 years from now, can work just part time, while still having a nice income. That way, I can spend my time in this life on What/Who really matters to me. - Doing things that I WANT do, not what I HAVE to do. - What do you think, great plan huh? lol
If you are looking for a slick lawyer or an agent type of a guy, perhaps a man who wears a suit to work, then I'm not your man! ...Well I do look pretty sharp in a suit if I may say. Hahaha
However here's a sad fact! I was on Match for a while, and after telling women in emails what I did for a living, I would not hear back from %50 of them. Unfortunately Window cleaning was not "Cool" enough for them.
My question to you is "Ask yourself, if you are looking for a man to take care of you financially? Or are you looking for love?" It's usually one of those two! Sad but true!!!
