Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Well, for starters my name is Gerrad, I'm a fun, not taking things
to serious kind of person. I relax and kick back most of the time
I've realized with my job that life is way to short to get bent out
of shape. I go with the flow most of the time eventhough I am very
goal orientated as well. I'm at the point in my life where I am
focusing on me. I am 23 years young. I'm recently single from a
relationship that was pretty serious. We both thought that the
relationship was the one and that we would be married and starting
a life but it didn't work out as we expected. Didn't end bad or
anything we just basically met one another at the wrong time in our
lives. Stating that, I have had a lot of bad luck with the female
gender lately so after a few heart breaks and lots of lies I have
come to a point of where I am going to stop looking for my "one"
and just let her find me if she is out there, so I would love some
friendships and I'm open to see what those develop into slowly. I
live on my own in Moline gets lonely at times but it's nice. I work
part time as a firefighter and full time on 3rd shift at John Deere
as a machine operator. So I am pretty busy with work but I always
seem to find time for people. I am a very friendly and social
person I love communicating with people it seems like I can have
and hold a conversation with just about anyone. Some of my hobbies
are firefighting and just hanging out with my family is huge with
me either my real one or my firefighting one I am very family
orientated and just plain relaxing is nice too when I can find the
time. My goals in my life have changed quite a bit, I'm sure
everyone will say that they are interested in settling down and
starting a family. I think that is a basic want and dream for
everyone but by all means I'm not looking to force that at any
point it has to feel right for me, I'm getting up there in age so
it would be nice. That doesn't mean I'm lonely nor does it mean
that I'm desperate I know what I want and what I deserve and I'm
not looking to settle for anything less at this point. Hopefully
that doesn't make me sound like an arrogant jerk. It's true though
I'm not just looking to change my relationship status it's more of
a see what is out there kind of thing, gotta feel the spark.. I'm
also working on getting my paramedics license and becoming a full
time firefighter on a big department since that is a huge passion
of mine. I like going out but I would choose staying in watching
movies or seeing what's new on Netflix any day. I have had my party
days I guess and that's just not one of my big interests anymore. I
don't really know anymore to share , but if anything has caught
your interests or you have anything you would like to know just
look me up I'm sure I would like hearing from you. I'm always up
for friendly conversation.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm currently working two jobs. I work full time at John Deere on
3rd as a machine operator and I'm a part time firefighter at
Blackhawk Fire Department. On the weekends I'm taking medical
classes to be a full certified EMT paramedic.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making situations less akward haha, I have that natural ability to
make people smile and laugh when they don't want to. Also frisbee
golf and video games! I know those two traits right there are what
all the women look for!!
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My height or shoe size and how I'm always smiling even when I have
nothing to smile about
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I am a movie buff I love watching movies!!
Tv shows: Supernatural, It's Always Sunny In Philly, The Walking
Dead, Rescue Me, Arrested Development, How I Met Your Mother,
Chicago Fire, Lost, Hard Knocks and probably a few others that I
can't think of.
Music: I listen to pretty much everything except for that hard
Food: I will eat about anything except for seafood and green beans!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Family.. Most important thing in my life!
Friends.. They keep me sane.
Firefighting.. Gives my life meaning.
My Truck.. I couldn't live without a vehicle
My phone.. Yeah I said it, but it really does have everything in
Netflix haha.. I'm always watching things on it, keeps the boredom
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My future, I mean who doesn't. I just always wonder where I'm going
to wind up and what choices I have made thus far in my life has
impacted my future for the good or bad
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I'm working at the fire department or unless I have to work 3rds
for a Saturday at Deere, but if I'm not working I'm always out
somewhere, usually at a friends or my family's house because I mean
I rarely get time during the week to ever see anyone.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Ok no judging! I will tell anyone and everyone that I can dance and
sing like no other, but when it comes down to it I look like a
fool.. It's to much fun to resist though.. In all honesty though
I'm a pretty good slow dancer, being the only guy in the family I
had to practice with all the family for their weddings and stuff so
I've been learning my whole life. ;)
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you are Taylor Swift or Shawn Johnson, well then you can message
You are interested in talking and not playing games. I won't
tolerate liars and cheaters anymore. I've had enough of them.
You also have to fully understand that I'm not ready for a
relationship at this point in my life. That's not a sign for hook
ups either. If you can be an interesting friend that I could hold a
conversation with then you're golden.
