My self-summary
I'm a very open minded person who doesn't believe in and can't stand double standards(i.e., it's "less wrong" for guys to cheat than girls, because it's just what guys do, we're more genetically programmed that way, etc... That's bs man, people are people, it's equal). I don't care if you're black, white, pink, purple, green, where you're from, how much money you have, the kind of car you drive, etc...etc... As long as you're not a complete D-Bag, I can pretty much get along with anyone. That being said, I'm also the kind of person who can find humor in everything(i.e. South Park) and will crack on anything or anybody, including myself. Sarcasm is Golden.

Music is a huge part of my life. It's always been there, gotten me through a lot, and I don't know where I'd be without it. I listen to mainly indie stuff. I could write on forever, so I'll just name a few off the top of my head - Guided by Voices, Explosions in the Sky, Rainer Maria, The Vulgar Boatmen, Jawbreaker, Jets to Brazil, Mary Lou Lord, Mates of State, Blake Babies, Big Star, Teenage Fanclub, The Appleseed Cast, The Ponys, Wesley Willis, Dressy Bessy, Pedro the Lion, the list is endless. Not into the mainstream stuff and consider everything on major labels to be 99 44/100% Ivory Soap Clean pure crap(Yes, Jeff Buckley you are one of the few from keeping it 100% - RIP), and view majors as the Evil Empire. I'm into and admire artists who put out what they want and are not conformed to change things just to sell records, etc... The official video for "From the Devil Himself" by Viva Voce pretty much sums it up, check it out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OvU8JS8b_uo

I Love discovering new bands(I mean I have a ton of shit, but there's still so much more out there I haven't heard and would enjoy, you just have to find it) and going to shows. Seeing a show every night sounds like a great way of spending the rest of my life. My favorite spots are the Beachland and the Grog Shop. I'm into seeing shows at smaller places like these and not huge venues, besides odds are anything I want to see isn't at big places anyways.

I wouldn't say I like to argue, but have "spirited debates" with anyone over such things as religion, music, tv/film, etc... to such trivial or silly things as which fast food place has the best fries or which girl was the biggest idiot on "Rock of Love" for actually thinking Brett Michaels is cool & wanting to be with him. Sometimes though, when having these debates with people I find so narrow minded, even if I may agree with their point of view, I'll take the opposing just to show them not everything is so black and white.

Dress wise you'll normally find me wearing vintage shirts, jeans, and my pair of solid blue Vans, and I hit the thrift stores at least once a week. No cruising to the mall to get the latest fads from Abercrombie for this dude. Definitely, not a suit or tie guy either, never owned one and I think I have two ties for if I have to go to like a wedding or something. I'll never consider myself a "Mr." and it's very strange to me when I hear it said, I'm just Dave.

Relationship wise some people say "opposites attract", that's really not my bag. Yeah, some girl with a mullet showing up for a date wearing a John Deer hat, Nickelback shirt & camo pants, whose favorite saying is "Git Er Done" may sound extremely enticing, but I'm gonna have to pass. I'm looking for someone very much like myself. Don't get me wrong, I'm not wanting someone who looks exactly like myself with just a cute little "bob cut" or something, I don't think I'd make a very attractive woman. You know, someone who has similar views & interests and just knows how to have fun. The kind of person who you can have a kick ass time with at a show, or just have the same amount of fun going to the grocery store with, someone who connects. Oh, and I'm not a fan of clowns, so if you've got the makeup caked on so much that a chisel is required to see your face again, we're probably not a match, and yes this means you as well Juggalettes. I'm sorry, that's not right, this ESPECIALLY MEANS YOU JUGGALETTES!!!

Honesty and being straight up with people is very important to me. That's why if you haven't already noticed I left the smokes and drugs details blank. I used to socially smoke while drinking but I've been using those Blu Cigs electronic cigarettes for a while now and excuse my French, but they're PUTAIN DE AWESOME!!!. It's great to not have to go outside of the bar or club anymore when I want one. Also, once in a blue moon I might smoke some pot. Like maybe if some friends have some when their listening to some cool tunes or watching Spinal Tap. Like I said it's not very often at all, but they don't have an option for that and "never" wouldn't have been entirely correct either.
What I’m doing with my life
I own my own landscaping/lawn maintenance company. I'm a really hard worker and enjoy being outside all the time. I could never be one to work in a cubicle, that would drive me insane.
I’m really good at
- Writing, telling stories, listening
- "Reading people"
- Sports(surprised?)
- Having fun
- SongPop : If you think you've got what it takes, Bring It! Better hurry though, cause if there's a SongPop Rehab I'm close to being admitted.
- And I make a mean mix tape
The first things people usually notice about me
I would have to say my boyish good looks, my ass(or lack there of), or my ability to drink the entire series cast of "Celebrity Rehab" under the table. Seriously, I don't know. This would be better answered by others' thoughts the first time meeting me, or whomever is reading this now.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I really haven't read any books in quite a long time. Not that I can't read or anything, I feel I can read pretty good, I just haven't. Believe me, being the only child of a former English teacher I read a lot as a child and, by no choice of my own, was ingrained with proper grammar as soon as I popped out. So much, that I used to purposely say things incorrectly just to get a rise out of my mom because my friends kept complaining to me about how she would always correct their English. Hopefully, you caught that in the second sentence.

Movies: Lars and the Real Girl, Chasing Amy, High Fidelity, Where the Wild Things Are, This is Spinal Tap, Anything John Hughes, Serenity, Friday Night Lights, Moneyball and Hoosiers to name a few.

Shows: Angel, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly(Hey, don't judge! You've gotta watch them all from the beginning, than you can tell me they suck. You'd be wrong, but at least you could say it.), South Park, Arrested Development, Battlestar Galactica(2004), Freaks and Geeks, Friday Night Lights, Veronica Mars, The Adventures of Pete & Pete, The League, Warren the Ape, Starved, and a bunch of others that were cut off way too soon and never got a chance. I do watch some reality tv as well, even though I curse it when my favorite scripted shows are cancelled.

Music: As I said before, I listen to mainly indie stuff and named a few(of many) in my self summary because music is so important to me it deserved to be in that category. I'm sure if you're into that kind of scene we'd have a lot in common & probably a lot to introduce as well, but if I had a gun to my head I'd have to say Guided by Voices is my favorite. If you want to see me and know what I mean: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SX-t8_EA1_A GBV....GBV....GBV!!!

Food: I'd say a little bit of everything, more picky about how it's made, I enjoy how I cook stuff. I don't think I could ever get sick of Qdoba or Chipotle burritos. One thing I'll never eat are any types of soups. No traumatic childhood soup incident, I just find them gross. Not a desert guy either, no cakes, pies, or jelly filled doughnuts for me. I do like just glazed doughnuts though and unfortunately Krispy Kreme has ruined me for wanting any other for the rest of my life, they're so damn good!!!
The six things I could never do without
- Music
- Polyester
- Grass (or I'd be out of business, duh)
- Sarcasm
- A Joss Whedon series
- Possibly You

The six things I could definitely do without
- One word.....NASCAR
- Ketchup (if there's one condiment I could wipe off the face of the Earth, it's a no brainer for me)
- Liz Phair "selling out"
- The George Foreman Grill (long story)
- A "Full House" Marathon
- Possibly You
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I wouldn't say I spend like all my time thinking about it, but I do enjoy spirited debates over organized religion. For instance, Christian "extremists" who believe that someone just magically snapped his fingers and created man. Oh, and then just snagged one of his ribs and made a chick so this dude wouldn't be lonely. I guess the biggest thing about Christian extremists that offends me is that if you don't except Jesus Christ into your life as your Savior, they say you're doomed to hell. That being said, you could rape, murder, molest, steal, etc... but as long as you ask for forgiveness and are truly sorry, all is forgiven and your ass is welcomed into the Kingdom of Heaven. While someone like myself(agnostic) who hasn't or wouldn't do any of those horrible acts, but simply doesn't truly believe, etc..., is basically screwed. Then on top of that these people tell you "how sorry" they are for you that you won't be saved. That's ok with me Kirk Cameron, if heaven's a place full of murderers and rapists it's not a place for me anyways. I mean everyone is entitled to their own beliefs and I respect that, just as long as I get the same respect in return. Religion can do both good and bad things, like with everything else it's how you use it.
On a typical Friday night I am
Well, a typical Friday night would depend on what season it is I guess. As I said before, if there's a good show that's what I'd like to be doing. Unfortunately, sometimes it's hard to find someone to go with(not that I need one), people are becoming lame. In the Fall it's always fun just sitting around a fire, listening to tunes and having a few, just staying up all night talking with cool friends. I don't know, typically I just want to be having fun.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Not sure if this is considered most "private", more like personal, but I guess I'll talk about the hardest thing I ever had to do. As I mentioned before, I like to tell stories, so bear with me.

Back in college I lived in a house with a bunch of friends right off campus, and as usual we were having a party over our house on a Saturday night. My roommate and I were coming back home and walking across some parking lots when we saw this big ass dog. He was probably the best looking dog I'd ever seen with reddish-brown/black/and white markings, and was very friendly and came right up to us. He had a collar with a license but no name tag or phone number, so we petted him a while and then off he went. Low and behold, later that night as the party was going on outside, guess who showed up but that dog, and he was an instant hit with everyone. He was so smart and I got him to do a whole bunch of tricks. I didn't want anything to happen to him because I knew that someone had to be missing him very much, so I decided to let him sleep in my room and stay in our house till Monday when I could call the APL and find the owner from his license.

Monday came around and I got a hold of his owner and when he came to pick him up he was very grateful and said his dog's name is Kane, and he just likes to take off and go roaming around when his wife let's him out. I was happy I had found his owner, but a little sad because I thought that would be the last time I'd see him again.

Boy, was I wrong. Not more than a couple days later, Kane was sitting on our front porch couch looking in the window. I called his owner and he picked him up again, but this continued on endless times for weeks to the point I just finally stopped calling and he just hung around our house, and if the owner called I would have just let him know he was there, but he never did. One day I was just sitting in the front yard with Kane and his owner drove by and stopped. Although, Kane meant the world to him, with his work schedule he said he couldn't give him the time he deserved, and saw how connected we were and said if I wanted him I could have him. That was the easiest question I'd ever answered, and for years Kane was the best friend I ever had.

Yes, I loved this dog like a family member(hell, even more than the majority of them) and I'm not ashamed to admit it. Besides being the smartest dog I've ever met, he was a champion swimmer and could run down a frisbee like no other. He absolutely LOVED going for a ride in the car because he knew he was either going to the lake, the park, or camping, and just being around others and other animals because he loved everyone and everyone loved him. Except for beagles for some reason, but they hated his ass as well, ever single one he met. Oh well, nobody's perfect I guess.

Well, one day I was at my house and was playing frisbee with him and he started to run and I knew something wasn't right. He started to slow down, his legs buckled, and then he just fell over. I ran over to him and he was just gasping and convulsing, and I thought he was going to die right there. After a minute or so, he controlled his breathing and got up, but I knew something was terribly wrong.

I took him to my vet and he did multiple tests, x-rays, etc... and the conclusion was he had a heart condition common in Rottweilers(him being half Rottweiler/half Chow). One of his valves was not functioning properly, if he was a person he would have needed a transplant. My vet gave me some medication to see if it could help any, and even went out of his way on his own time to take his test results to heart specialists to see if anything else could be done.

Unfortunately, in the weeks to follow his condition worsened. All the time I had him he would always be where I was at. Now he was starting to have trouble getting up to always be around me, I knew what I had to do. I called my vet and he said to come in the next morning an hour before they officially opened. The next morning even in his weakened state he was so excited when he realized he was going for a car ride, his joy and smiling looking out at everyone and everything on the way there still gets me to this day like nothing else. Once we arrived I walked him to the open field next door and said my goodbyes(just between him and I). I'll never forget how still the air was when entering the clinic, and how there was absolutely no sound except for our footsteps walking to the back room. To reiterate how much this dog was loved and affected people, there wasn't a dry eye on the entire staff. I told him I Loved him and petted him until his eyes closed.

I haven't had a dog since, but I do have a cat at the moment. It seems like with all the pets I get, we find each other. She was a stray that came up to me when I was outside a bar's patio after the Ohio State/Michigan game in Akron a few years back. I've had her ever since, and she's the best cat ever.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 25–45
  • Located anywhere
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
You want to, that's basically it. I am also a member of another site, "Match.com". It totally sucks ass, definitely letting that subscription expire, but the one good thing about it I think was my entry to their "ABOUT ME & WHO I'M LOOKING FOR" section so here it is:

I'm 5'11 3/4'' and 175 lbs of "Twisted Steel and Sex Appeal" (see photos). Now, with the obvious out of the way, I'm also open and honest and, ummm, hopefully you can tell at times very sarcastic. I dance to my own beat and I'm very passionate about the things I like and are into without worrying what others think about them. I'm very open minded and respect other people's ideas and beliefs and expect the same in return because I really don't have time for one-sided, narrow-minded people.

I do landscaping/lawn maintenance for a living. I work hard and a lot and really enjoy being outside and active. Hey, anything good enough for "Ronald Miller" is cool with me.

What am I looking for? To put it simply, a connection. You're funny, real, smart. You're an individual who isn't afraid to be themselves. You have a great mind, with something to say. You can both dish it out and take it. Someone who always wants to take care of themselves both mentally and physically. Someone passionate about the things they hold dear. Someone who doesn't settle for things. Someone who loves to laugh and realizes that there's humor in everything. Someone who respects my ideas and beliefs, but doesn't have to agree with all of them(the vast majority is good enough). Someone who can get lost and find themselves in a song. Someone fun. Someone who realizes that "So, I Married an Axe Murderer" is Mike Myers masterpiece. Someone who doesn't need a laugh track to life and understands and appreciates sarcasm, i.e. parts of this profile. Someone who doesn't try to impress me, but does so none the less. Someone who believes that relationships aren't something you "always" have to work at, some just work. Someone to age with, but never grow old. A best friend. Someone that everytime I see them the first thing that comes to mind is, "Man, you're the Coolest Chick in the World." Wow, that's it, I could have saved a lot of time and trouble and made it very simple: I'm looking for "The Coolest Chick in the World."
