Long profile. If you don't like reading, just hit pass.
- I am use a lot of sarcasm and deadpan humor sprinkled with brutal and often inappropriate truthiness. If you can't handle it, it's likely not going to work out.
- If I don't lead with a comment about your looks or compliment your looks right away, doesn't mean I don't find you attractive if I contact you or reply. I believe that women have more value to offer than just their looks, so it would be a disservice to who you are as a person to be described as cute/pretty/hot/beautiful/sexy, etc. I already know that if we're talking.
About me: I am tall, dark and subjectively handsome. I'm happy about my particular stage in life and career choice/direction. I'm very ambitious and on track to enter the executive ranks as long as I stay on the path I'm in now. That being said, I would prefer in a partner someone to push me forward instead of holding me back.
I have all my teeth (sans wisdom teeth - turns out they weren't so wise) and am perfectly capable of forming a complete sentence, qualities I hear are rare amongst men in dating sites. Points for me, I suppose. I do know the difference between "where/were/we're/wear," "here/hear," "your/you're/yore," etc:
The word "there" can appear as a pronoun, as in “over there".
"Their" is a possessive pronoun. In a phrase like “Susan and Bill's car,” it could be used to to make a new phrase: “their car.”
”They're” is a contraction of “they are.”
“They are” should always be able to replace “they're.”
I understand the need to shorten words to fit a text message, but save that for twitter or texting.
I am a pseudo-recent transplant to Chicago from Florida, and I do not mind the cold. Being that I am fairly new to town, and still going through a transitional period, I'm not looking to go all out dating here, but open to what may develop.
I'm 6'1, so I generally have a height cap of who I am willing to date that I set at 6'0 if you wear flats. This is only because as a male, I have a primal need to feel like a provider/protector and when a woman wears heels it does make me a bit self-conscious if she is taller than I am. Along the same token, I'm a pretty strong guy, so it is important to me to be able to pick up a woman and carry her without risking injury. Read into that as you may.
Coming Soon:Pictures of me showcasing both my awesome bare chest and selfie skillz (skillz with a z is appropriate here) by taking a shirtless bathroom mirror, hopefully with unflushed toilet in the frame. Also, a picture of me kneeling in front of my car, probably flashing a pseudo gang sign, such as a sideway peace, perhaps with a duckface. Let's not forget a picture with a huge gun to subconsciously broadcast insecurity issues. I'll put those up as soon as I'm feeling especially douchey...
I think that's enough for now. I will come back and edit this down later. Feel free to say hi if you made it this far and have not been scared off :)
- I am absolutely terrified of heights. That's why I have been bungee jumping three times and tandem skydiving 6 times. Embrace your fears, yo.
- I was an active duty Marine for almost 10 years. I'm proud of my service, but it doesn't define me.
- I have been to 35 countries, not counting layovers. Australia and Argentina are my favorites (something about the southern hemisphere).
- I recently adopted two dogs from the city shelter. They've enhanced my life in indescribable ways. By the way, single men shouldn't have cats. Not straight ones, anyways. Nothing against cats or cat owners, and it's okay to own a cat, as long as you have a girlfriend, or a female roommate, or a gay man. Just my personal unqualified opinion.
- I'm a tasteful (or tasty) guy - I only drink from the finest boxes of wine, such as a vintage 2014 white zinf from the outskirts of the San Fernando valley that currently occupies my fridge.
