My self-summary
I've been single a long time now and I've learned a few things along the way. First women can be as crappy to men as the other way around. Seriously if you can't communicate like an adult then don't waste my time. Second (and this may sound convoluted) while respect is earned, it should be given freely, the world would be a much better place if it was. Granted there are plenty of people who squander the respect given to them but don't let that affect other people. Third it's ok to be picky and not settle, but be honest about it. We are all looking for something and we all deserve to find it, along the way we will meet people who turn out to not be what we're looking for which is fine but be honest about it. Fourth always be yourself no matter what. If you can't be honest about who you are you'll never be truly honest with others. Fifth if i start to really like you, you're going to check out. Sounds dumb but history has proven this to me. Sixth never be desperate, this will cause you to settle and neither you nor your partner will truly be happy if you do. Seventh like who you are first and foremost. If you don't like who you are others won't like you either. Plus one of the biggest mistakes you can make is thinking someone else will make you like who you are more. Eighth expand your knowledge. I believe it was Confucious who said "I investigate things to complete my knowledge, my complete knowledge makes my thoughts sincere, my thoughts being sincere my heart is pure". Ninth be healthy in mind, body, and soul (don't take soul in a necessarily religious way). Working out non stop for a hot body doesn't accomplish much if you treat people poorly or don't exercise your mind too. Same goes for any combination of the three, be in balance. These things may or may not be of any consequence to the reader, but they are things I've learned over the years and if you've kept reading this far you may have some insight into who I am. I'll throw out a tenth to make a round number, Janis Joplin was right, freedom is just another word for nothing left to lose.
What I’m doing with my life
I spend most of my time working these days, I just started my own business which has me traveling around town to different veterinary clinics assisting in specialty surgeries. I also do part time hours for a clinic I've been with for about 10 years. When I'm not doing that I'm probably either working on the house, working out, or hanging out with friends (sometimes all those at once!). Might sound boring to some, but I enjoy my life.
I’m really good at
Thats for other people to judge, afterall how many times do we think we're good at something just to have other people notice you really suck.
The first things people usually notice about me
I really couldn't say, I'm not a mind reader afterall, if I was, well that would just be cool.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Lets see, books: LOTR, A Song of Ice and Fire, It, Band of Brothers, and a lot of boring nonfiction.
Movies: Saving Private Ryan, LOTR, The Dark Knight trilogy, Marvel movies, The Jerk, theres too many to mention here.
TV: Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, The Americans, Its Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Parks and Rec, Justified, I'm kind of picky about tv really.
Music: Billy Joel, Johnny Cash, AC/DC, Metallica, White Zombie, Pink Floyd, Journey, Weird Al, Air Supply (just seeing if you're paying attention), my taste is eclectic.
The six things I could never do without
1. My liver, its in the name
2. Water
3. Food
4. Shelter
5. Clothing
6. The sun
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Self improvement.
On a typical Friday night I am
Depends (like most of us), for me mostly on the time of year. Spring, Summer, and Fall is something outdoors. Winter means quite frankly I'm doing nothing.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Hell I don't know, there's too many emberassing moments in my life to choose from!
You should message me if
You like a nice guy. And I don't mean you THINK you'd like to meet a nice guy, but thats what you really want.
Also if you can forgive grammatical and punctuation errors in this profile, hard to get it right while typing on a tablet.
