Hey, what's up people? My name's Chris. If I had to be categorized, you might say I'm "hippieish." In other words, I'm relatively "liberal" (whatever that means nowadays), enjoy going to shows, concerts, music festivals, and having fun whenever time and money allow, and I'm pretty laidback most of the time and not what you would call much of a complainer. On the flipside, I also enjoy showers, living in a permanent home, and having a satisfying and stable career. Plus, I don't have dreadlocks, don't sell drugs or smoke myself retarded, I'm not a vegetarian/vegan, I don't drive a VW bus, and I don't smell like patchouli, hence the "ish" part (not that this stuff defines "hippies," but we're generalizing... okay, stereotyping, here). Anyway, if you're down to earth and into any of that, I'd like to hear from you.
I'd say I'm a sweet guy. Thoughtful. I'm the type of person that holds doors open for old ladies. It feels good to help people out when you can, and I just try to do right by my human brethren. On the other hand, I have an occasional sarcastic streak that pops up, especially if I get to know you pretty well. However, I've tempered it quite a bit because, as I've gotten older, I've come to the realization that being a smartass is not a viable answer to everything.
I'm curious about the world and find people fascinating. I love a good story. Even if we don't have much in common, I'm usually up for talking anytime I'm messing around online. That said, if you like what you read, forget the star ratings, just send me a message. I'm a "replies often" type. It's too bad more women on OKC are not. Y'all get badgered a lot more I guess. Anyway, regardless of match %, zodiac sign or whatever else may not completely align in your search parameters, I'm an optimist when it comes to friendships.
These dating sites are all a numbers game. Women can reply with silence all they want, which they usually do, but I guarantee you (yes, you if you're reading this) will get way more out of this process if you engage in a dialogue. I'm not one of these douchecanoe internet stalker types, and a message from me doesn't mean I want to meet you in person or ask you out on a date right away. Doing so based solely on some text an pictures without talking first, IMing or exchanging emails would be kind of naive. If I think we might have stuff in common or if I'm just interested in learning more, I'll send a message. If I get the silent treatment in return, I'll probably put your profile on hide, so I don't end up messaging you again by mistake. I'm just a normal dude trying to make small talk, and I'm on OKC have conversations with people. I hope you are too. Have fun.
