Being let down many times has helped me to determine what I want in a relationship and the kind of person I want to be with. I want to find my best friend. Someone who has similar interests and won't be looking at the clock thinking we are spending too much time together. Of course, there will be time apart, but just enough to give us a chance to miss each other. I am truly looking for my best friend who I then happen to fall in love with. I may not look it, but I am a huge nerd. I want someone who will want to go to a comic book convention or anime convention with me. Who will spout off random information like I do. I love Star Wars, sci fi movies, comics, and video games if there is time. If you like industrial rock n roll/techno like Nine Inch Nails, you are definitely speaking my language. I am also a huge foodie so someone who loves trying new restaurants and cooking and can get into food as much as I do all the better. I am glad that what I'm looking for now is so specific because hopefully that will get any deal breakers out of the way. I also want someone who cares about what they look like and being at least fit. I don't work out regularly right now, but I'm still slim and watch what I eat. I do have the dream of my significant other being the person I work out with regularly.
Now onto the other stuff. I have a lot interests, too many to count and I'm always willing to try new things. I am a huge movie buff. I own over 1000 dvds/blurays. I love most music except country, most pop today, and some rap. I prefer classic, alternative, and punk rock along with techno (and not the crap they play in clubs). I am corporate health inspector/food safety consultant for a large company. I previously was a health inspector a local county health department. I love food, cooking, and especially baking (cakes most). I could spend hours talking about movies or food or both. If I could only have 3 foods on a deserted island, it would be steak, sushi, and pineapple orange banana juice. I love trying new restaurants. I will admit that I care about my appearance, which some girls would construe as being high maintenance. I see it as wanting to look good for the person or people I'm with. I have a huge range in taste in liquor, but I only drink socially or with someone else. After a long day, a drink usually makes me tired and then I'm useless. Some of my other interests include comics, writing, video games, television, playing sports (basketball and golf specifically), watching sports (pretty much anything), hanging out, going to see live music, concerts, and mellow bars. I am a Cubs fan, but I do not hate or dislike Sox fans. I only dislike obnoxious or bandwagon fans. Oh and I'm sure people are going to wonder what nationality I am because I put other. I am half puerto rican, then Scottish, Irish, English, and Swedish. I don't know my biological father, that's why I don't embrace my Puerto Rican heritage. I went to Purdue and majored in Environmental Health Science. I am very sarcastic almost to a fault sometimes. I prefer someone who understands I don't mean any of it or especially if they can dish it back. If you got this far, congratulations. I'd give you a prize, but you would have to collect it later.
