My self-summary
I'm a man. That word has somehow gained a negative connotation over the years, but there's a lot of people who claim to be one while only really giving the term a bad name. If you're a woman who has been misled by those people, allow me to expand upon what being a man is supposed to entail.

I have a job and I do it to the best of my ability. With that job, I take care of myself, help people I care about when they need it, take steps to make my life a better quality than it is today, and take steps to ensure the futures of myself and anyone else who may come into my life in a permenant fashion.

While I didn't finish college, I feel like I qualify as educated, read frequently, and keep up to date with the world around me. Sometime it apparently became "cool" to be a moron - this is a trend I shall continue to reject.

My hobbies are broad - from the nerdy world of building computers and watching documentaries on string theory to working on cars and building things. My biggest hobby is the martial arts - from Muay Thai and MMA to Judo and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, I've found a love for all of them. I've even taught a string of women's self defense classes and genuinely think everyone should be able to defend themselves in some capacity. As a function of this particular hobby, I have spent a number of occasions in a ring or cage fighting other human beings. There isn't enough room here for me to explain my philosophy on why despite its appearance, it is a non-violent act, but I promise it isn't what the Tapout shirt wearing douche bags would have you believe.

I'm not a "tough guy", I don't promote violence, I'm not a drunk, and I'd much rather settle things with a nice philosophical debate than anything physical. I see myself as the eternal underdog and would do anything to help out the little guy.

I love to help people and making others smile...my ability to have empathy and understanding for those around me is probably my favorite part about myself. It has always been hard for me to compliment myself, but in all honesty, I have a very big heart. (metaphorically speaking - medically, I am fine.)

Finally, as a function of being a proper man, I am honest - even in situations where it would benefit me greatly not to be. I'm not sure when a group of guys got together and decided to make every girl on Earth think anyone with an adam's apple is a liar, but...I just don't have the talent to do it. The same goes with cheating, manipulating, and whatever other stupid thing "guys do." I was lucky enough to skip that stage, I suppose, but really - I've grown up to be a man and that comes with a minimal amount of B.S.
What I’m doing with my life
I haven't lived in St. Louis for very long, but I'm starting to settle into things pretty well. I work for Enterprise Fleet Management as a maintenance coordinator - which is kind of like an over the phone mechanic. I really like it, and as a company, they take great care of me.

I spend a ton of time at the gym, although instead of lifting heavy things, I'm usually learning some sort of new technique to not get my ass kicked.
I’m really good at
Listening, cooking, picking up heavy things...I like to think of myself as handy too - a bit of a jack of all trades if you will. I am not artistic though, not even a little.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have been told my eyes and my shoulders, which are quite broad and blue - but not necessarily in that order.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I read a ton of nonfiction, but whenever I have the time will try reading anything someone recommends.

I listen to mostly rock...from the Beatles to Static-X, and I think that either Say Anything or Silversun Pickups is in my car stereo right now. As long as the music has meaning, I can tolerate it - my guilty pleasure is Tegan and Sara...yeah, that's right.

I enjoy really crappy 80s action movies and fully admit how bad they are. Something a little more cerebral isn't bad either. My favorite is American History-X, but I'm fairly open when it comes to watching movies.

I don't have cable anymore, but my 3 favorite shows ever are the original Top Gear, Simpsons seasons 1-10, and Arrested Development. Let's hope you can laugh at at least one of those?
The six things I could never do without
1.) The gym - my life goes downhill without it.
2.) My friends - we always just pick up where we left off.
3.) Laughter - although I don't always smile in photos, I love humor and making people laugh.
4.) Conversation - I will debate anyone who is willing. Intelligent conversation and the mental chess of debate just genuinely make me happy.
5.) Passion - being passionate about things is just a fire that drives me and when I am driven I feel like I can accomplish amazing things. It keeps my life on track.
6.) Music - who doesn't love a song that just speaks to your mood at the exact right time in the exact right way?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to make myself better than I was yesterday, how to more efficiently keep my apartment clean, and when did the word "selfie" become a thing?
On a typical Friday night I am
I've finally established a "typical week" of working from morning to evening and then being in the gym from 5 to 9 or so. I'm working on making another run at training to compete in assorted combative endeavors, so after a string of injuries my Friday nights are spent catching up on lost time in the gym. This isn't set in stone, so if the right person wanted to steal me away, that's certainly a possibility.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I was married once, and despite the two of us having been together for 5 years prior, it crashed and burned almost immediately. I suppose that sort of thing happening isn't uncommon in today's world, but that doesn't mean it's something I'm proud of. I'm certainly over it, moved on, and ready to keep moving forward in life - this is my most "private" thing because I'm somewhat afraid that it's something that I'd be rejected over.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 25–35
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
You're not looking to keep living or relive your college days. I'm all for having fun, I really am, but I seem to have made the transition into real life adulthood and would much prefer someone in the same boat.

If you love to laugh, don't take everything too seriously, and are a nice girl...say hello sometime.
