Hi girls! I'm looking for someone who's active, funny, and can carry on an intellectual conversation. I currently work in the aerospace industry doing software engineering, but I won't bore you with the details :) I love staying active and being outdoors and I always love a good challenge. I like learning new things and staying up to date on current events, politics, and such. As far as humor goes, I can be pretty funny/goofy/silly as the situation allows, but I also know when to be serious. On that note, some of my favorite TV shows are The Daily Show, Family Guy, and Mythbusters. But for the most part, I'm a pretty humble person with a lot of common sense who isn't afraid to work hard to get something I really want.
What I’m doing with my life
Working in a field I find mentally stimulating and challenging
while trying to balance work and fun, and always trying to find
things to do that will give me a sense of personal fulfillment . Oh
yeah, and trying to find that special someone :)
I’m really good at
Doing things that require self discipline. I've always had a
stubborn persistence and a drive to finish everything I set my mind
to. When I was 14 I completed my goal of becoming a black belt in
Tae Kwon Do. Later I taught myself to play guitar. I earned my
private pilot's license back in 2007. I'm really bad at math but I
got through very challenging calculus and physics courses in
college which required endless hours of studying to complete. I
train at the gym 6 days a week always pushing myself to get better;
something I've been doing for the past 11 years.
I also have a natural curiosity about almost everything, and I've
always liked to learn how things work.
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably how fit I am. I get complements all the time from people
asking me what type of supplements I take (I don't take any!), how
long I've been working out, and pointers on how to get bigger. I
used to be really thin and I consider it one of my best
accomplishments to have gotten to where I'm at now.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
The Dune series, 1984, Hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy, Rendezvous with Rama, Timeline, anything by Arthur Clarke and Frank Herbert. Don Quixote, Anna Karenina, Mark Twain's autobiography, a 3 part series on Theodore Roosevelt, and Knocking on Heaven's Door by Lisa Randall the theoretical particle physicist.
Star Wars, Back to the Future, The Right Stuff, Terminator, Twins, True Lies, Apollo 13, From the Earth To the Moon HBO miniseries, John Adams HBO miniseries, The Big Lebowski, Indiana Jones, James Bond movies, Crocodile Dundee, Goodfellas, Office Space .
The Daily Show, Last Week Tonight, The News(gotta stay up to date!), PBS documentaries and Discovery channel shows that delve into the mysteries of the universe.
Mostly rock and/or roll, metal, classic rock, indie, and the like. Any type of 80's music with cool guitar licks always grabs my attention. I can usually listen to just about anything except some hip hop, and R&B.
Most anything although I tend to avoid heavy or fatty stuff like cheese, cream, desserts (though not all the time),and some types of seafood.
The six things I could never do without
Keeping my mind active
lots of good food (i'm a health nut with a big appetite)
Physical activity / exercise
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I'm always thinking of at least 3 or 4 things at any given time. Things like: What I have to get done at work on any given day, the never ending list of things to do that comes with having your own place, what the future holds for me, things about myself i'd like to improve, what I should be doing now so I don't wish I did it when I had the chance, both good and bad memories from the past, oh and all kinds of stuff involving aviation (I'm a huge airplane buff).
On a typical Friday night I am
Usually hanging out with friends depending on whats going on that
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm not a huge fan of small-talk. I'll do it when its necessary,
but I'd much rather talk about something with substance.
You should message me if
You're smart, independent, in shape and funny. I'm looking for a
partner in life who isn't afraid to get their hands dirty and wants
a genuine guy who will treat them with respect.
