I much rather tell the blunt truth instead of trying to give a positive impression.
Let's leave for now the popular dogma of "i'm awesome, hardworking, down to earth, honest to a fault, loyal" bla bla bla. We know we read this in every profile as if it were a copy paste success formula ha ha.
I work in a full time job for a big technology corporation. Brad Pitt stole an audience from me so thanks to that my paycheck is not a 7 digit number ha ha ;) (Sorry sugar daddy ladies)(and yes, that was a joke, now you may laugh).
I'm passionate about reading, arts (like classical music), performing arts and I despise reality TV. I dabble in some sports and I work out but not as an obsession but to stay strong and healthy.
Now, getting a little serious here, I think a true man is:
-not your average Joe.
-someone who knows that drama is non-existent... in his life.
-a person who can face ignorance and smile
-relaxed, but alert.
-generous, but not stupid.
-a person who has his things both in order and under control (finances, health habits, hygiene and his own emotions to name a few).
Cultivating the mind and gathering knowledge is something I'm passionate about.
Turn offs... Honestly?
Ignorance, bigotry of any kind, hardcore fanatics (religious, political, race, etc), a woman with a low sex drive, coldness.
If you came this far you should know I'm not from the US originally, meaning:
1-I may have a different mindset in some topics.
2-I have a peculiar accent.
3-I'm not desperate to get a citizenship since I am legal.
4-I do not judge people for their racial/ethnic/religious background but for their kindness (or the lack of it).
5-I lived in a bunch of different countries and I realized I get along with open minded people the best.
If you feel we can find entertainment exchanging words in this colosseum where most fellas try to prove they have a better and more exciting life than the rest, we can chose to be ourselves and behave like human beings and say: hello stranger!
