Lots of people look at my profile. I don't know how many like what they see and how many find me overly strange. If you want me to check you out, why not rate me 4-5 stars or favorite me so that I'll know? Seriously, fortune favors the brave.
Physically (since this seems to be what people care most about, or at least first wonder about), I'm huge. Not one of those tall skinny guys. Imagine a short muscular/stocky guy, then expand his body in all directions until he's 6'5". No matter how big you are, I can pick you up and carry you up a flight of stairs. I'm not quite at 6 pack level fitness, but have a very nice chest and shoulders, and the 6 pack is close. I know how to use my strength, but also know how to be gentle. Also, you'll be jealous of my hair. I've been told many times it was wasted on a guy. Finally, I'm not a typical L.A. guy. I don't wax my chest or go tanning. I don't wear skinny jeans. I'm about the farthest thing from metro you can possibly be. Straight up midwestern style guy here.
I'm an artist and musician and I work ten to fourteen hours a day writing and creating. I don't have any debt and have good credit. I read constantly and prefer silence to noise. Seriously, my perfect date (not a first date certainly) would be lying in bed together and alternating bouts of reading/cuddling with mind blowing physical bliss. If you're the type of person who is exhausted by most people, we'll probably get along. I'm not shy at all, but am EXTREMELY introverted in the sense of drawing energy from calm and quiet. If you're a social butterfly, that's fine so long as you are okay with me not always tagging along when you're making your rounds. I'll gladly meet your friends and do my best to be charming and fun, but it'll probably exhaust me. I'm not at all the jealous type, so if you want to be a scenester and are comfortable leaving me at home, we could still work even if you're not a hermit like me. The whole dating process really stresses me out. If you're into games or whatever else, move along. If you need someone to spend a lot of money on you and be at your beck and call to believe they're interested, move along. Play hard to get and you won't get got. I'm honest about my interest or lack thereof, so you should be too. If you'd like to meet up and go for a walk or a hike, or maybe watch a movie at my place (this is not code for hooking up, this is me being a hermit) then stick around. I'm a a very good man, always do the right thing, the kind of guy you'd want your sister to marry if you weren't interested. Unless of course it's obvious you need a bit of "bad boy" in your life, in which case I can be very bad.
If I sound like a flake or like I'm overly demanding, I apologize. I've been alone for a while because I realized that the way most people socialize is very stressful for me. Basically, it's more trouble than it's worth. I'm here because I've been urged by my family to socialize with someone besides my dog. I love my dog a ton. If I ever love you as much as I love my dog, you'll be a lucky lady (assuming you want to be loved).
I guess I'm a bit quirky and eccentric, but it's not something I cultivate. I'm not one of those people who revels in being different. I just am what I am and I've never met another man I'd rather be. (points if you know where I got the second half of that sentence).
I may require a bit of patience since I probably don't want to hang out as often as most would (unless it's VERY low key), but I am generally marriage minded and ready to settle down. As for kids... if you have money and want to have kids, I'm probably in. If you're poor like me, I'll probably be hesitant, at least for the time being. Money doesn't equal life, but it makes life easier, and being a parent is hard enough.
