My self-summary
If you read all of this, more power to you. Hopefully I gave you enough info to get the gist of me and you'll find something that sparks your interest. Let me know what you think.

Hi there, my name is Kyle and thank you for visiting. I moved to Asheville in August of '14. I moved here from Boone after graduating with degrees in Business Admin. & Public Admin. I now work in sports management and love my career so far.

For starters:
Like most people in Asheville, I love the outdoors. My favorite is hiking, but I recently picked up trail running. I enjoy working out 3 to 4 times per week, but I'm no meat-head that looks like he lives in the gym. I grew up playing sports year-round and still play/watch them as much as my schedule allows.

A few things I like:
I enjoy reading crime fiction or historical fiction novels. Name a board game, I'll beat you at it. Two sugars and cream for coffee. I enjoy jigsaw and crossword puzzles. I love to just get in my car and go...no planned destination...come back later that night or 2-3 days later, who knows.

What I'm looking for:
Let's make conversation first and see where it takes us. I love adventure. As I said above; I love just going somewhere with no destination. If this sounds like you, then we may click. I really appreciate someone who's willing to challenge me intellectually and have meaningful and opinionated conversations about important (or not important) topics. I was raised to be a gentleman and I intend to treat you as a lady ought to be treated.
What I’m doing with my life
I work for the minor league baseball team here in town. Ask me about my job, because I'd love to tell you about it.
I’m really good at
- making you laugh
- reminding you of things you would otherwise forget
- giving advice
- providing random factoids
- coming up with original ideas for places to go and see
- reading a good book in less than a day
- organization...keeping things tidy
- Grammar, punctuation, and spelling (pet peeve)
- keeping you guessing (dating applies here)
- surprises
The first things people usually notice about me
- "this kid likes his Nike's more than most girls like shoes"
- I'm not afraid to laugh at myself
- I have a "touch of gray"
- I'm a big sports fan.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Harlan Coben, Agatha Christie, and James Patterson are my favorite crime/murder mystery authors. Shelby Foote, Bernard Cornwell, and John Jakes are my favorite historical fiction authors.

TV: Shows I'm keeping up with regularly right now (this is an ever-changing list): Quantico, Agents of Shield, Big Bang Theory, Last Man Standing, and I'm re-watching Burn Notice on Netflix. I also watch something sports related on a daily basis; usually ESPN.

Movies: I enjoy comedy, action, based on true stories, animated family movies, and an occasional romcom. Favorite actor is Jason Segel and actress is Natalie Portman. I'll have to admit I'm not a big fan of Will Ferrell movies. I find his movies entirely too stupid.

Music: acoustic blues, indie, alternative, and a little country. I'm old fashioned; I prefer am/fm radio. For you locals that can relate: 97.7 The Brew and 98.1 The River are my top two stations.

Food: Allergic to shellfish. Other than that, I'll give it a go.
The six things I could never do without
Family & Friends (counts as one)
Entertainment...Netflix, Internet, Music, etc.
Laughter
Coffee/Sweet Tea
Outdoors...especially in the mountains
baseball season (it's my career and I love it)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why do we drive on parkways and park in driveways?
Why isn't "phonetic" spelled the way it sounds?
How does the guy who drives the snowplow get to work in the mornings?
Why are there Braille dots on a drive-up ATM?
What was the best thing before sliced bread?
Why call it a building if it has already been built?
Why is abbreviation such a long word?
Why does your nose run and your feet smell?
Is there another word for "thesaurus"?
If corn oil comes from corn, vegetable oil from vegetables, where does baby oil come from?
If pro is the opposite of con, is progress the opposite of congress?
Why can TIER and TEAR be pronounced the same, but TEAR and TEAR be pronounced differently?

This section was given to me to show my sarcastic side, which if you really get to know me, you'll get to see plenty of. It will be one of the first signs you get from me that says, "hey, I like you."
On a typical Friday night I am
I enjoy going downtown when I have some friends to go with, but our hotspots are Barley's, The Lab, Thirsty Monk, and One World Brewing...but I'm not a heavy drinker. One or two drinks is enough for me. We go to catch up on the week, complain out something that happened, or reminisce on old times growing up.

Then there is the occasional night where watching Netflix and not leaving the couch makes for a perfect Friday evening as well.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm addicted to jigsaw puzzles....I use a loofa in the shower...I'm often colder than you are...oh, there's probably others, but that's good for now.
You should message me if
If one or more of these apply...or if you read something above that I should mention here:

You are:
- Adventurous
- Will challenge me intellectually and accept when I challenge you
- Support each other of our goals
- NOT looking for some fling or one night stand
- Enjoy traveling
- Enjoy the outdoors
- Think dinner/movie sounds like the most boring first date ever.
