Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
*** This profile is officially in hiatus. ***
EDIT: Since people don't seem to realize this... If you "like" my
profile or pictures, I do not see who you are. All I get is a
message saying "Somebody liked your profile. Pay us money so you
can see who it was." If you are one of the people who "likes" my
profile, just message me, instead. "Hey. I liked your profile. My
name is X." That's all it takes. And now, on with the
I would best describe myself as a modern southern gentleman. I
believe women should be treated with chivalry and kindness, but
know they must be whole in themselves to appreciate it. I treat
others with respect and expect such to be returned.
I am a self professed nerd and dork, a fool and a goof, and often
the butt of my own jokes. I can quote the oddest movies and have a
love of fantasy games, movies, and books. My sense of humor can be
witty and sarcastic as often as goofy enough to make me face-palm
myself. That sense of humor is also how I deal with stress and get
to know people, so I hope you're not uncomfortable laughing at your
date. I am a student of architecture and philosophy. I will talk
for hours about the Lord of the Rings or debate the role of ethics
until dawn with great enthusiasm. I'm as likely, though, to sit and
wonder at the beauty of nature or the warmth of a friendly embrace
in happy silence.
I'm generally a quiet and reserved person. My friends often call me
the "nice guy" of the group. That is, however, often interspersed
by surprisingly funny or thought provoking comments, or a random
call for a road trip to Enchanted Rock because we can. I'm a
planner who thinks about the long term constantly. I'm also someone
who will change plans at the drop of a hat if the mood suits me.
However, even when I'm spontaneous, I'm the one who's always
prepared and able to get out of any jam. *tries to resist the
In a relationship, I am part hopeless romantic, part suave
gentleman, and part playful lover. I enjoy spending time with those
I love, but need and appreciate the personal time we all need to be
ourselves. A partnership, to me, is when two are comfortable enough
together to spend all day in eachother's arms, and secure enough to
spend a week apart just to appreciate the other more.
I am looking for a young woman to have fun with, and, perhaps, get
to know well enough to have a lasting relationship. I'd like to
meet someone I can sit and talk with for hours and hours, until the
cafe kicks us out and the sun sends us home. I'd like to meet
someone I can sit and hold hands with in happy silence for a 6 hour
drive because we can. I'd like to meet someone who is young enough
at heart to enjoy the more playful side of life, but mature enough
to know the beauty of a simple warm embrace.
There are a lot of other things I could say about myself and the
person I'm looking for. But, to be so specific would ruin the hunt.
To be so upfront would leave me with no stories to tell. In the end
I'm just looking for someone to go camping with....... or the love
of my life. ^-^
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I moved here from Texas in 2012. I'm loving the region and am ready
to start my masters in Urban Design and Architecture at UNCC.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Tooting my own horn is something I'll never be good at. (see what I
did there?) But if I must, the things I consider myself competent
at beyond the norm....
Home improvement Projects
Juggling Devil Sticks
Reading people's moods and personalities
Listening / consoling

Physically? I get a lot of compliments about my eyes.
Otherwise? They first think of me as quiet and soft spoken, until I

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
For books I'm a fan of fantasy and mild science fiction. I recently
finished the Whee of Time series. I'm beginning to work on the list
of classic books and short story compilations I've been building up
over the years, though.
Movies... I've a very wide taste in them. I dislike the awkward
comedies (American Pie series etc) and the pop-culture fluff movies
(scary movie, twilight). But other than that, I enjoy anything from
Monty Python and Shaun of the Dead to The Postman and Finding
Neverland. My favorites are Wall-E and Pleasantville, though.
I've not had cable in many many years, so I'm not much on TV. But I
did like How I Met Your Mother when I did have cable. And I watch
The Daily Show rather religiously.
There is no genre of music which I can not find a song or artist
which I do not enjoy. I lean more towards what is recenly being
called "Americana" (Muse, Wallflowers, Mumford and Sons) and good
I'm a meat and grains kind of guy when it comes to food. I love
pastas and the like. I'll try anything once. I'm getting better at
cooking as I get older, too.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Good Hiking Boots
Pen/Pencil and Paper
A Good Red Wine
The Ability to Laugh at Life's Misfortunes
Another New Horizon
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Where I've been, where I am, where I expected to be, and where I
will be in the future. I'm a planner. I'm always looking back to
learn, and looking forward to anticipate.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I love to have people over for movies / board games and a few
drinks. Though I've honestly been taking more "me" time of late,
just sitting, drawing, reading, and relaxing. I'm currently working
near full time and also doing graduate school, so often Fridays
will see me working on class stuff or passing out, however. I'm not
much of a "go out" type of person, though I do love to hike when
the weather is nice and I'm ALWAYS down for the standards of eating
out, catching a play / movie, or similar such if the company is
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
The most terrifying thought in the world to me is that there might
a God, and they are all powerful, but they are by no means the kind
and good entity we imagine.
