I fuse molten metal with fire and electricity, but I notice your new hair-do and comment on it. I race fast cars, but can come home and cook a romantic meal. I build machine tools and motorcycles, but can sew my own clothes. I make my own beer, but make you feel like you’re the only thing that matters when we’re together. I’m equally at home camping or mountain biking in the woods or at the symphony or opera, and I can’t wait to see you in that swanky dress you got to wear to the performing arts center.
I grew up in Los Angeles and the Pacific Northwest and moved to Charlotte in 2004. I’m mature enough to know what I want and be honest about that, rather than play little boy games and tell you what I think you want to hear, and value a woman that can say the same. That said, I’ve only just recently gotten out of a very long-term relationship, and while I’m not ready to be thinking about getting married or anything, I am looking for something that could grow naturally into something serious, or just see where the wind takes us.
I generally like places that are a bit unconventional. I’d rather go for beers at Common Market than shots at Whiskey River, for example, and I spend a whole lot more time in Plaza Midwood or NoDa than I do in Myers Park or Ballantyne. I enjoy live music, everything from Rockabilly bands at the Visulite, to folk artists at Neighborhood Theater, to the Charlotte Symphony. I’m a roller derby fanatic, and until recently refereed, hence the stripy shirt in most of my photos. If I stay in, it might be to watch films by Tarantino or the Coen Brothers, or maybe some of the great TV that’s on these days, like Game of Thrones, the Walking Dead, or Shameless.
The things that I look for in anybody that I want to spend time with, particularly a potential special lady, are a good sense of humor and a willingness to laugh, even at themselves, a quick wit and a sharp mind, someone who can appreciate both the beauty of nature and the culture afforded by being in the city.
