I decided to check out the whole online dating thing. I'm a little hesitant about it, but if I find someone that's cool and if not no big deal.
Those closest to me would describe me as always in a good mood, laid back, hard working and determined with goals. They would also describe me as caring, often worrying about others before myself and sometimes getting getting hurt for doing that. Most of all they would describe me as someone who really does care, is sincere, humble and tries to make everyone feel important. Maya Angelou said it best - "people won't remember what you said, they won't remember what you did, but people will always remember how you made them feel". I live by that.
I always remember that someone else has it worse, no matter how bad of a day I have had.
When people first meet me they usually notice my smile and "welcoming feeling" that I try to give them. I believe they know that I actually care when I am talking to them.
My job as a teacher makes me smile. I truly love it and cannot see myself doing anything else. However, before becoming a teacher I wanted to be a police officer but felt that in teaching I could more positively impact people. I am fully committed to my career and it is something very important to me.
I am somewhat close to my family. I find myself worrying about them often. We have been through a lot and although there are sometimes we get frustrated with one another, I still love them and wouldn't trade them for anyone else in the world. I'm half Irish and half Italian. The Irish love to joke and the Italians love family, food and being loud.
I am grateful for everything that I have in my life. My family/friends, my education and my health most importantly.
I am proud that I was able to complete my Masters Degree in Education by the time I was 25. My next goal: my Doctorate by the time I'm 30.
I am passionate about my education and career because I have worked hard for both and I believe I am at my best when I am engaged with them.
I would love to travel across country but have not been able to. I would like to travel more but my career and finances have not allowed me to.
My social life involves hanging out with friendsand having a few drinks. Sometimes we'll head out but we don't like to as much anymore. Not really into clubbing but I'd be down for any dive bar anytime.
My perfect date would be anywhere we could really get to know one another. Although it might be a bit of a nervousness feeling I want to know about my date to see if it will work.
I am often and have been more mature that some of my friends. But I like having a good time, joking (nothing is sacred - that includes dirty jokes).
If I won the lottery I would pay off my family members' debts, my debts and my friends debts and make sure they were settled first. I would make sure that I would be able to live comfortably for the rest of my life and then donate some of it.
In a relationship i'm looking for someone I can feel totally comfortable around. Obviously I take physical attractiveness into consideration with, but I want someone laid back, hard working and has an awesome personality that loves to joke around like me. I am often shy around girls and I think that has hurt me a bit. Someone that if I were to look at a photo of the two of us I could say "wow they look good together". I believe communication, honesty and dedication are important.
If you wink at me and I don't respond, please don't be offended, I don't mean to hurt your feelings, honestly. I just know what I'm looking for....and plus I don't pay for it. If you're smart, you'll know how to get in touch.
If you give me a chance, I promise I am different from other guys
