-I write a lot; I'm not as serious as I sound when I write, that is, if you do think I sound too serious... (because I like to LOL... often), though I am, like many people, often a little more shy in person for awhile.
-I would like to someday marry a self-respecting woman who nevertheless impresses me more than she is impressed with herself.
-I appreciate a little dose of reasonable optimism in any person I communicate with. There is much to complain about in the world, and sometimes constructive complaining can be engaging, but then sometimes it is nice to have a break from whining.
-As more of an introvert, great conversation with good company is, to me, far more enjoyable than most other sorts of entertainment. I typically enjoy hearing people share with me about themselves, or just conversing in general about life: perhaps over a spot of tea (HAH); although I also enjoy iced coffee. Good heaven, am I really that boring? ;)
-I am interested in publishing literature on natural theology: more specifically epistemology; evolutionary biology; and Christian and humanist ethics.
-I used to play the drums (in my teenage years) from '98-'04 and I thought I wanted to be a musician for life. Danny Carey [tool] was my greatest inspiration (and still is my favorite drummer), but my interests gradually shifted (plus, I would like to be amazingly amazing in my career of choice... Danny Carey has already staked his claim in the drums/percussion genre). Josh Freese [The Vandals; a perfect circle] is an awesome drummer as well
-I find mechanical engineering with CAD, regarding the design of fuel efficient turbofan aircraft engines to be very fascinating, and I've had many interests along the way; but I think I've really decided in part that philosophy of religion and philosophy of science are where my heart is at.
-I like to help people when they ask me (and I appreciate when they ask me :])
-I'm a forg*ver; If I do have a grudge against any person, it won't last. (Of course, I should mention that I don't consider being discontented with arrogant person's behavior as being a grudge against the person. I am very much capable of hating a behavior someone habitually chooses without hating the person; in fact, that is a vital distinction.) Forgiveness, in any case, doesn't necessarily entail a full regaining of trust; though, I'm still pretty trusting. Also, when I'm truly wrong, I'm typically quick to admit it... or you might have to let me know.
-Simple respect is important to me. Though, of course, I cannot guarantee that my understanding of respect is identical to that of another.
-I'm a passionate person in anything that I enjoy.
-Hey, I'm not "cocky" as OkCupid says I am; I'm just confident regarding some things; and I wasn't always so. Also, I'm not terribly disinterested in sexuality as OkCupid seems to suggest, either. I'm human, too: just tentatively reserved. On that note: Promiscuity doesn't impress me, and, in fact, I find it to be an enormous turnoff as far as my interest in the person romantically is concerned.
-No offense, but I'd personally rather not date a mom, though I don't mind conversation with one that doesn't involve her flirting with me. :P If you are a mother, I commend you for not putting your child to death via induced abortion: you're courageous, and not all women are as brave as you. Some women are selfish, but you are selfless as you have a much higher appreciation for love and life.
(Hmm, I also have a profile on facebook.)
*I can be quirky in my writing; I'm not as serious as I sound (I like to laugh... often); I'm a little more shy in person for awhile* (and yea, sometimes I get tired of hearing myself think :)
-If/when I message you... I knooow that I'm random sometimes; there's no need to let me know... yea
-I don't agree with everything I've ever said and done, and there's more to be had in my life that I probably won't agree with either.
-The view on dating that I have is this..... A person and I must become really good friends, first, that can withstand the test of time before even considering any jazzy romance... If two people can't be best of male/female friends, what would posses them to think that being 'more than friends' would ever succeed, or better yet, be wise? With a few unlikely exceptions, it truly never has and never will. I think some people never will learn that. And I like to talk to people within around 10yrs. of myself, but I wouldn't date someone say more than a few yrs. older, and I'd rather go younger (the Brahmen problem). But I'm not sure I plan to meet people from here... idk, maybe.
-Promiscuity doesn't impress me, infact it's a huge turnoff. I have a sex-drive like anyone else, but sex is just not something I have to have right now, if you know what I mean.
-A lot of pop culture influnced things bore me, like parties and such, though not all... but probably most.)
-I am no atheist, and I don't believe in monkeys, thank you. Science, though awesome, is only a mere study of God's creation. When you seek to put finite knowledge to something as infinite as God, you'll never quite understand... God doesn't abide by the rules of science, science abides by God. My faith, rather, is sexy. And I think it's really cute when people mention their religion (or their mommy and daddy's religion), and then say that they're "laughing about it" or "not too serious about it"... please, either you have faith in something or you don't (but I'll love you anyway :), and of course, if you're agnostic and don't know what it is that you believe in, then never you mind this comment all together, lol) Although, religion itself is just a bunch of rituals plus a basic faith. I'm more into the faith and attractive morals.
-Love doesn't hurt; it is beautiful. Besides a few bumps in the road... Longing for a reciprocal love that isn't actually there... that is the hurt most people are likely referring to.
-Kids, don't lie to me and say your piercings and tattoos didn't hurt ...they hurt like a bitch and you know it. Belly button piercings... they're pretty gay; take it out. lol
-My Favorite male voice in the rock music industry is the legendary voice of... "Maynard James Keenan" of: [tool]; [a perfect circle]. (though I'm sure the audio engineering helps a bit too ;)...)
-My Favorite female voice in the music industry is the lovely voice of... "Amy Lee" of: [Evanescence].
-I used to play the drums (as a teen) from '98-'04 and I thought I wanted to be a musician for life. Danny Carey [tool] was my greatest inspiration (and still is my favorite drummer), but my interests gradually shifted (plus, I would like to be amazingly amazing in my career of choice... Danny Carey has already staked his claim in the drums/percussion genre). Josh Freese [The Vandals; a perfect circle] is an awesome drummer as well... Now (and forever), I'm really into mechanical engineering/CAD in the aerospace industry, and being the author of a book that will maybe challenge your thinking, and/or possibly screenwriting, and/or possibly becoming a mentor or relationship counsilor someday ('cause I know how to help people, if they want it... I'll Dr. Phil your ass out! lol j/k But, if they don't want help... I will likely give them their space.)
-When I'm wrong, I'll apologize, trust me. Of course though, if I didn't sense a wrong on my behalf at first, you would simply need to let me know, and I will make ammends. Sometimes, my decency scares/annoys people. Well, most any rule has its exceptions... but this one is typical of me.
-I'm a forg*ver; If I do have a grudge, it won't last... unless you're a total biotch, in which case... go eff yourself :P ...but still, I'll probably let it go.
-Simple respect is important to me; The only kind of person (besides the insane or smelly) that I avoid, are those who apparently place little importance on 'common' courtesy.
-I'm a passionate person in anything that I enjoy.
-i before e except after c... weird... that rule doesn't apply to weird.
-You should never feel threatened by me; I don't think I'm better than you and I'm rarely defensive...... jerk! j/k on that last part
-I'm more of an introvert... which doesn't mean that I can't have fun damn it! ...lol
Pet peeves; complaints; bitches; gripes; dislikes...
-...conceited/ disdainful/ irritable/ overly moody/ selfish people... Some girl (or guy if I was gay like that) could be the hottest girl ("") in the world, and yet the most ugly. ...Pompous temper tantrums are sooo annoying too. :)
-...alcohol abuse... too many people drink way too often just for a good time. I may have some fruity alcohol drink once in a blue moon with a friend though... but that would be kind of rare.
-...drugs ("Drugs are bad, mkuy, so don't do drugs, 'cause that'd be bad, mkuy, 'cause drugs are bad" -Mr. Mackey)
-...too much sarcasm (except for mine though; I have a free pass...)
-...APATHY ...what is it w/ some of the younger people these days?? "OH, hey look," says jared, "that mother just willingly paid that doctor to kill her baby." Typical American replys, "Ehh, whatever, it's her choice, I guess." "yeah, okay, you're an idiot... grow a spine, jerk," says I.
-...attractive girls that think all guys are dogs... or an attractive girl/woman/whatever that just assumes a guy is paying attention to her just because of how she looks. There are some ugly people out there, and all she can think about is how rough she personally has it... that's messed...
-...fake people... like showy churchies that make a scene with their "Hallelujahs! and Amens!" sitchur ass down befoh I cap yo ass [I do not support gun violence].
-...anything slower than a dual-core processor
-...the United States of America (sure, I understand that the U.S. isn't the only country with some seriously effed up morals saturating it... but I for now, I live here, so for now, I enjoy picking on America)
-...people/girls that say: "ummmm, okay???" Yeah, you know what, I think your most likely dumb; grow up, you're not a woman, you're a bratty little girl with an attitude... *cheers*
I am sincere, *loving, and fairly ambitious
