How many times and ways can you articulate who you are, what you offer and what you're looking for before you start to feel like you are just a product you're aggressively trying to sell? At least this forum offers some discretion; unlike going door to door ready with visual aids of your strengths, weaknesses and requirements asking: "Have you tried this remarkable product? You really could use a little Christopher in your life!" lol. Okay. Here comes the pitch.
I am affectionate, playful, adventurous with the woman I am with; I'm low maintenance and level headed. I think too much, have too many ideas for one lifetime of implementing them and while I crave simplicity and a streamlined life, I tend to over-think pretty much everything.
I'm a home owner and a dad; with that comes the joy and daunting task of keeping up with my kids. I have twins (6 year old boy and a girl) and a 7 year old girl. As a home owner, I have to landscape and keep up my yard and remodeling my home. Fortunately, I am a jack of trades and I can do most anything around the house.
I'm confident, but fully aware of my flaws. A lifetime of self-improvement is not just a good idea, it should be a requirement for everyone. Like water, you're either moving forward, changing form or stagnating. And everyone knows stagnating water is gross.
I tend to be unconventional and consider myself an eclectic person. I’m thankful for a unique upbringing and various life experiences which have taught me to keep a positive roll-with-the-punches attitude and to maintain a determined and hopeful perspective of life. Life is 1% what happens and 99% how you deal with it.
I typically have a cheerful attitude and it takes a lot to get me angry. Although injustice, parents who smoke and people who are outright cruel, think they're superior to others or are "owed" what they haven't earned get me riled up.
I trust my gut instincts and am typically a very good judge of character. I am deeply loyal to my family and good friends. The definition of a person's character is how they treat someone who can do nothing for them.
Clever wordplay and playful banter are fun and a good debate about a serious topic is great now and then as long as it stays friendly. Intelligence, self-sufficiency, articulation and ambition turn me on. I go to the gym 6 days a week to stay fit and I only ask for in return what I offer.
I have been on here for about a year and I come to realize one thing. You can have the greatest profile; (<-- Great use of a semi colon, isn't it) I can talk about what a good job I have, how responsible I am, how caring I am, how handy I am around the house, what a good dad I am to my kids, the hobbies I like, how I have a masters degree & ten Microsoft certifications, and how I have a vision for the future (did you see what I did there, I was selling myself without trying to sell myself). But, you know what? No one reads all of that garbage, they just look at your picture and if they don't like your picture, you just get passed by.
It's almost like living though high school again except you now have a great career, make great money, own your own house and have great kids, ok, sometimes they're not so great, but that is kids for you, and, oh yea, losing my hair, I didn't see that one coming. At least, I have a nice shaped dome! Anyways, where was I before I had a squirrel moment??? I remember now, profiles. I have decided to shorten my profile being, no one reads it anyway. Here it comes.... are you ready?
I live by myself, well except for my kids and my bird, and maybe the occasional ant but that don't count.
I own my own house, well in 350 more payments I will own the house. Actually, I'm paying the house off in ten years. I don't like to owe anyone money.
I have a great career that is in demand, as opposed to a career that isn't in demand, which that would mean I was unemployed. Which I am not, I am employed. =)
I save money for the future, meaning, I want to retire one day. Do you realize only six percent of people do that, save for the future? That is sad, out of 100 people you meet or should I say, pass by a day, only six people save for the future.
There it is, short, sweet and to the point. If you would have closed your eyes, you would have missed it.
