My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm an intelligent, polite, and caring person who is wanting to find someone I can connect to, enjoy being with, and maybe even fall in love with. I don't have riches or a place of my own or even an amazing career to offer to anyone, but I am really empathetic, intelligent, and silly at times. I'm also super down to earth and extremely open minded, I see the validity of a lot of different view points I suppose. I can be very much a philosopher at times if you get into a deep discussion with me. I'm interested in finding a partner, someone who I can respect and love, over any sort of hook up. If your the kind of person who enjoys cuddling up together to read poetry, or laying in the grass under the stars at night making wishes, or just being with someone who is not afraid to show their feelings and be passionate about it then I'm your guy. One disclaimer though: I'm (mostly) a grown up, I don't play games/manipulate, I don't cheat, and I don't really care what the rules of dating are, and I don't walk around with a chip on my shoulder. I'm a man who tries his best to do whats right and consider all sides equally as much as possible.

Brains and a love of nature are good too.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Currently getting more motivated than I ever have been before to make myself into everything I want to be and live a fit, healthy, and successful life. I try to work out daily, and I'm educating the hell out of myself in my spare time (atm I'm hooked on trying to understand all of Jungian psychology). I also practice zen buddhism when I have the time. Feeding stray cats is fun too.

Right now I'm focusing on getting my A+ technicians certificate and working my way up the entire tech certificate tree until I'm making some decent money.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Being honest. But don't worry, you'll always look good in that dress ;-)

Random information, being non-conformist and breaking peoples expectations (I won't lie: I enjoy breaking the mold)

Technology, socializing, memorizing random facts.

Appreciating you for who you are and what you naturally look like, not who you pretend to be or look like.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I'm stupidly tall. That I'm a huge extrovert and love to meet new people. That I have almost no sense of shame and I don't mind ever being wrong if I can learn more from it.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
-Books/my nook
-bicycles
-a notebook to write in with pen
-tools for repairing things
-education.

Oh, that's five, hrm, then my cats too! :>
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What I can do to move my life forward in a beneficial way. The fact that every day is a new chance to completely start anew at achieving all my dreams if hadn't started already. That happiness is really a choice at heart, even when it seems impossible. Equality. What does it mean to live a fully genuine life and own all my experiences as my own without excuses. Will I ever love anyone again. Why do people try to date others to fill the holes they have in themselves rather than letting go of their "demands and expectations" and heal themselves first. Seriously, I've come to realize that expectations are a projection of the beholder, especially in dating.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Reading marathon, at the gym, or hanging out with friends and partying. Or in the grass meditating somewhere if possible. Good times.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I used to be whipped easily like most men when I was younger but I think age has brought me to the point where my dignity and my life is more important to me than chasing after anyone just for sex. Its a wonderful thing obviously but I just am not going to jump on anyone for that alone. I'm really looking to preferably fall for someone or at least find a relationship that has equal parts desire as it does appreciation and respect on both sides. Feel free to interpret this as meaning I'm a feminist if you like.

  • Ages 21–35
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You really should message me rather than hope and wait for me to message you. I don't really message any women on this site because I dislike all the societal pressure to couple up or die alone. I refuse to live a life in a hurry to be a paragon of the cultural norm. (though sometimes I try).

But seriously, if you think we'd get along go head and start a good conversation and who knows ;-)
