I can't stand frat house party guys. I don't like most team sports. Football, basketball, baseball... I'll take free tickets or watch a game, but generally I don't care, and certainly don't know stats and players. Here's also what I'm not... Conservative, a hipster, a geek, an athlete, brilliant, charismatic, a drinker (but I'll have a drink or two).
I like to read, but I don't consider myself particularly well read. I'm smart, but not a genius. I'm handy, but have my limits. I love to cook, but don't like cleaning up.
I work downtown MPLS. I play and make music sometimes. I've been an entrepreneur and I'm creative. Contrarily, I can be a semi-professional procrastinator. =)
Sometimes I say some funny shit. I appreciate sarcasm, but stupid funny is sometimes still ... well, funny.
I value honesty... not into drama or games, I'm open and a pretty good communicator. I'm a fan of East Coast straight-up frankness.
I try to stay positive and my goal is to be happy, but I'm not always happy and not always in a good mood. Life can sometimes be trying and difficult. Still, I have to be thankful I'm white, middle class, healthy and not living in a third world country.
I'm a Meyers-Briggs ISFP personality.
I'm easy going, happy at home reading, watching a movie or TV show -- or out soaking in the energy of a band. I like having a few close friends. I'm more a wallflower than a social butterfly and do better with an introduction, smaller groups or one-on-one.
After reading hundreds of profiles on here, I'm not sure if the girls here are all super amazing athletic, creative, artistic, adventurous, volunteering, social butterfly, travelers, ambitiously climbing the corporate ladder.... or somewhat full of shit.
I do get a laugh seeing the descriptions of what some are looking for in their perfect partner... the white knight in their fairy tale fantasy... Handsome, affluent, smart, compassionate, empathetic, selfless, emotionally and financially stable and secure, driven, ambitious, creative, confident yet not narcissistic, well read, well travelled, baggage free, partner in crime... Yeah, good luck with all that.
News flash -- people are not perfect. I'm not perfect you're not perfect. Never have, never will be... and that's ok.
To misquote something I heard from someone I don't remember... "The goal is to find someone you want to be with, that you find attractive, and that you can deal with their shit and they can deal with yours.
"You? Looks are important. A connection is important. In fact, everything's important! I want someone to go out with but can be just as happy chilaxing in. Someone who can get dirty (gardening -- what are you thinking?). I'm not looking for perfection...
I don't trust this whole "Match" - "Friend" - "Enemy" percentage thing on here. Enough IM already. I don't think OKC is a good replacement for physical interaction to see if there's an actual spark. Merely a facilitator.
If you made it this far and think you might be a good fit - apply below. If not... don't worry, there are still plenty of guys who sit around playing poker, drinking beer and watching the game... or out getting drunk while whooping it up to Drake.
