#1 I have Asperger’s Syndrome. Now before you go all crazy thinking I’m diseased or completely mentally handicapped let me stop you right there. Do you like Sheldon Cooper from “Big Bang Theory”? Temperance Brennan from “Bones”? Or perhaps you found Adrian Monk from “Monk” quirky and adorable? They are all beloved TV characters who have but may not know they have Asperger’s Syndrome. However, these characters are mostly “overdoing it” for comedic effect and do not portray an accurate depiction of most people with Asperger’s. To sum it up as simply as I can someone with Asperger’s is usually quite intelligent but not very good in social situations or with other people’s emotions. In my case I am very much a typical guy on the surface and most people never know that I even have Asperger’s Syndrome. I am sociable and like meeting new people but it can be both physically and emotionally draining for me and I may need time to recover after a night out on the town. Now that I’ve scared 90% of you away let’s get to number two.
#2 I’m a big guy. I’m not grossly overweight but definitely not skinny, I mean I can see my feet and can bend down and touch my toes. I’m at 250lbs and my goal is to get down to 200lbs by the end of this year. I actually enjoy being active but I just need to actually get off my butt and do it. Which brings me to number three.
#3 I love video games. I don’t get why this one is such a problem with a lot of woman. All I want is a few hours a week or one weekend a month to just veg out and play some Xbox. Some of the best times my kids and I have had are playing video games together.
Now that I have completely ran off 99.9% of you let’s get to what you absolutely will get from me. I’m honest. If you didn’t get that vibe from anything I said above let me just say that I firmly believe in “Treat others the way you wish to be treated” and I would rather know the truth about something than being lied to even just to spare my feelings. I’m loyal and trustworthy. I have worked for the same company for eight years. How many people can say that? I was married for seven years and we were together for nine. I’ve never cheated on anyone, ever. I’m good hearted. I usually always mean well even if it doesn’t come off that way. So, if you’ve made it this far send me an email.
