My job takes up a lot of my time and my personality does not afford a lot of socializing opportunities in this area. I am not some crazy hermit but when you are not religious...then no socializing at the church on Sunday. Alva is also in the middle of an oil patch that is booming and even though I have worked in the oilfields for years, I do not like the whole "oilfield trash" lifestyle. Nowhere is this in more effect than in the bars so I do not hang out in them. OKCupid is my attempt to streamline the process at meeting new people.
I would like to meet someone that will turn out to be a soulmate. If you have similar interests and would like to make a new friend only...I am fine with that. I value honesty above all other virtues. Someone may be witty, well-traveled, adventurous, and smart but it means nothing if they can not keep their word. This is true for romance or friendship.
People know me as a quiet, reserved person until I have achieved a level of comfort being around someone then I open up. I enjoy being around new people and make friends easily but still can count on one hand the people I would call close, lifelong friends. On any given weekend I am either doing chores around the house, reading, Netflix, gaming, or out riding my motorcycle. I love riding motorcycles as it clears the mind and puts you into an almost meditative state. I also like working on my bike or truck because nothing can ever go too fast and I love to tinker.
I love to cook and am pretty good at it, love animals, and to travel. I've grown used to cooking for myself and love all kinds of food. Cajun and Korean are my favorites but I've traveled internationally and love all food and am adventurous in eating. Travel - I love the planned out, going on a trip planned out months in advance kind and also the hopping on my bike and riding until the tank is empty kind.
