"A D&D nerd, gamer, math geek, guitarist and hopeless romantic in the body of a defensive end."
"I know I am foolish to have any real expectations on this OKCupid thing. We're mostly on here but social interaction is something we either don't desire much of or struggle with. I'm just afraid to try."
PREFACE: Sarcasm and dry-wit lie ahead. This profile is to meet INTERESTING and UNIQUE women (if you are neither you should respectfully withdraw). I am aware that I am in West Michigan and most women who take good care of their minds and bodies tend to all look for the same guy which usually isn't me. So if you have gotten this far in my profile, kudos for having reading skills and thank you for playing. I know my words may seem "stand-offish" but after 29 years in and out of Grand Rapids I have learned how to filter. A lot of my profile is intended to entertain and scare off predators. Some of what you might read may be offensive (not sexist, racist, or religiously bigoted) due to it being blunt and to the point. [The author of this profile does NOT take himself too serious and thinks that other people could stand to take it down a notch] If you have a good sense of humor and understand that expression can be therapeutic and entertaining, then read on. You might find yourself laughing, relating and/or arguing with this profile, as intended. Enjoy!
Self summary: "I am not strange or unusual, nor do I have a bad attitude. I simply have an unpopular approach."
Also, if you hate drama, it's probably because you've never learned how to deal with it and avoid it. I don't hate anything that isn't a problem.
WARNING: If you think I'm "cute" let me save you the trouble, you're not going to like me. If you like me, there is something wrong with you (apparently). You're either overweight, overly optimistic or over zealous. To be honest, other than friendship, don't even bother unless you're confident you'd score at LEAST a 120 on a Standford Benet Intelligence Test. If you hate math, logic, understanding, and perspectives that aren't your own... RUN! But if your that rare individual who takes care of herself and her mind, is powerful and self-confident, PLEASE continue on, but you should know that YOU'RE THE BOMB (trying to avoid swearing) and you can probably do better than me.
I love to learn about new ideas, technology, writing, music, art, culture and trends. I love original thoughts and concepts that show us the world is heading in the right direction, even in our darkest hours.
In general I am a loner and an analyst with an ever curious and creative mind (True Aquarian). I have friends but they are few and genuine. I have many MANY buddies and acquaintances, but few are ever upgraded to what I consider friend status. I'm picky with my friends, perhaps sometimes even more so than with the women I date. I am here merely to test the waters and keep my mind and heart open. I often find myself randomly packing up belongs and going for road trips alone, long drives so I can think, write and live. The destination means nothing to me, I just want an interesting life and perhaps someone to share it with.
Either way I keep my heart guarded pretty well but its always open to someone who doesn't scare easily and who can challenge me, nothing more enticing than a challenge! :)
I am tall, dark, and in transition.
"Please read as much of this profile as you can stand before contacting me."
Contrary to what I might say, I really have better luck meeting women in real life than online. I think it's because in real life you're more likely to settle for what you think is going to be entertaining whereas the prospect of online dating gives us the freedom to be extremely judgmental, bigoted and finicky as to whom we will entertain and allow to get to know us. I am really here because I don't believe in keeping these doors closed. I am definitely on here hoping to make new friends and am not hoping for anything more. But if more happens I'll take it one day at a time. If someone reads this and says, "Hey, there is someone who ISN'T a clone. I like that!" Then message me ASAP. Most of the time I'm messaged by women I don't find appealing who are messaging me without reading the entire profile. They probably look at my pics and say: "Mmmmm I'll settle for that!"
Anyhow... if I haven't scared you off yet, read on. I promise I am not as pretentious in person (probably far more! :P). I feel it's important to have filters that keep the people who you might hurt and might hurt you out of your life. I'm just hoping to avoid potential disasters with this preface. If you're a woman who likes to laugh, think and enjoys challenges, then you'll find me irresistible.
