Are you something unique and special? Are you NOT a clone?
Detroit-born, transplant to Florida - poet, intellectual - looking for a new muse. Could it be you? I would very much like it to be...
...So I am trying this again - Been off the radar lately. I decided to take myself out of the dating pool for a while, so I have been focusing on my new job as a trainer for my company. :) Looking to meet that someone special, could it be you? I am also working on my first book of poetry that should be out in a few months...
So I'm back! Single again. Just moved to the I-drive/Sea World area. I have come to the conclusion that being single is extremely lame - agree??? I'm 35, I am not looking for any one-night-stands or anything of the like - I want a committed relationship where we work together as a team. I am not looking to control nor be controlled by anyone...
Alright - here's the deal. I have met up with a good amount of people on this site, and everything is great in IM's and emails/texts until you meet the person in real life and they have nothing in common with you. Let's put a stop to that.
This profile might be rough - if you can't hang on until then end - best of luck to you. This is meant to weed out the little girls from the women I am actually compatible with.
I'm a geek. If you are not a geek or at least geek-tolerant, then please move along - I'm not the man you're looking for (See what I did there?) - Also, I am pretty damn awesome - if you are not necessarily a geek but convinced you are awesome, we might be able to talk - just make sure we have something to talk about.
If you can't deal with the following things - we probably won't end up dating. Feel free to settle with your choice of clones with nothing original to say. I am a unique person and I would like to think that you would be as well.
- Horror Movies - not required, but it's something I like as well as other genres
- Halloween Horror Nights (Huge fan, it's like Christmas, I get the frequent fear pass and go a ton) even if you don't like Horror it's a lot of fun! Great date in Sept/Oct/Nov.
- Shihtzus (Who doesn't like shihtzus?)
- Firefly/Serenity (This is probably a petty one but necessary) - not a requirement, but it should be.
- DO NOT BE be a wuss, prude, argumentative, or asexual.
I am a huge movie buff. I have a huge (650+) movie collection. It's what I do, darlin'.
What other things am I into? I write poetry and attend meetups. I am always reading something - I usually am out training a few days a week at different places in Central FL - I am off on the weekends. My life is pretty sweet right now and someone else to share it would make it all the better. I cook, I clean, I make a mean grilled cheese. I'm Irish, a Redhead, and a Scorpio, so I am more than a little passionate.
It's a shame many of the women I have talked to on here have had such disappointment in their lives. You have to believe that the good guys are out there (I try to be one of them) - just like I have to believe the good girls are out there.
Here are some quick things about me to set the tone... the mood if you will.
Are you as sick of games as I am? Looking for someone who is fair and values mutual respect? Look no further... you have found me. I'm a good guy that just seems to find sirens (the mystical women that lead sailors to smash on the rocks) instead of muses. It's getting frustrating, so I am going to try something new to try and break the cycle. If you are reading this then I hope you are sick of being hurt and disappointed as well. I want something that works for once.
Right off the bat I will tell you I'm not perfect, rich, or a model. I'm not the skinniest guy in the world. I had to reboot my career when I moved down here from Michigan just over 5 years ago. However, I do have a decent, steady job that I excel at. (I work for MFRMLS as a trainer) - I'm trying to make some progress in my life and would love to find someone who understands that relationships are all about being a team and communicating. I'm looking for a partner, someone to share life and all of it's experiences within.
I'm an honest person, fair, but flawed as any other human being. Women are beautiful, and are always to be treated with the utmost respect. I am a gentleman and you will not believe chivalry is dead around me. I'm also (as advertised) a poet and writer, looking to be inspired. I'm a Scorpio. If you know what that means I have a certain passion about me (I am pretty much the epitome of a Scorpio).
I'm looking for that special someone, and figured I would start here... Haven't had much on here yet.
What do I look like? Well I am SWM, 5'9", 240lbs (Have a few extra, looking to get rid of it as well). Short red hair. I'm a non-smoker and social drinker. No drugs, clean bill of health.
What am I looking for? I think 25-35 would be a good range for me. Someone who is set in their life, but is perhaps a little lonely like I am. I'm not looking to support anyone, and I am not looking for someone to support me either. I'm not horribly specific on looks or ethnicity.
What kinds of things am I into? Well I am always up for new things to try, and still need a tour guide for this great state of Florida. I am a big fan of movies, sports, and all kinds of music. Other than that I have a penchant for technology and art. I love to explore and welcome new experiences of all types. I am well educated and well read. I can make you laugh, I guarantee it. Expect great conversation. I love animals that I am not allergic too - especially my dog Cody, who is a shih-tzu.
Turn ons: Assertiveness, Aggressiveness, Compassion, and Intelligence. I really like my women to know what they want out of life, and to take it. Must also have a heart (no robots). Having something to say. People who are aggressive in their pursuit of me...
Turn offs: Drama, People too intertwined in religion or politics (Republicans). Women who let themselves be disrespected. Those who do not have a heart. People who cannot and/or do not like to communicate. Also - high maintenance. *Shudder*
Please, do not contact me if your bring drama, stress, or some other scenario with you. I live a fairly stress free life, and would never put that on anyone else. Please refrain as well if you have some other man (Lurking Ex, etc.) in your life, because I do not like to share, and will never settle for a maybe. In fairness I would expect the same out of you. If you contact me (and I hope you do) please include a picture so I can put a face to your name.
I don't really mind single women with a kid or kids. I love kids. Kids love me, it's crazy. Doesn't bother me one bit.
I am not a churchgoer, and not into Jesus freaks. Sorry, that's harsh, I know. I'm not an atheist or anything, I just don't care to be involved with church. If one of the "Top 5 things I couldn't life without" is God, Jesus, the Bible, or Church... unfortunately I am going to take a pass, the last person I dated really left a negative impression when it comes to that. I'm not against religion, I just don't want it to dictate how relationships should be run. It's a decision you would be making for the both of us, and this is supposed to be 50/50, remember?
Relationships are all about the team effort. While I believe someone (unfortunately) always has the power in a relationship - the trick is to get as close to 50/50 as possible. The effort should be equal on both parts.
In closing - I am perfectly happy with my life right now, except the whole LONELY thing. I'm not going to settle. I have to WANT to NEED you, because if you're not worth it, I don't need you. Be amazing and then let's be amazing together as a bonus.
Would you like to know more? Don't hesitate to drop me a message! Don't be shy, I'm not a very timid person.
I apologize if this profile seems a bit harsh - I promise I am a very nice guy and a gentleman to boot. Just want to weed out those who aren't compatible. Hopefully you are still here.
So, if you are still here - send me a message!
Don't be a wuss.
I would prefer to meet someone local - I have gotten a lot of messages recently from people in other parts of FL or out of state - please be within a reasonable radius of Orlando to make it easy on both of us. - Or be worth the travel :)
As of 12/25/2013 - If your definition of "Geek" is watching DR. WHO, THE BIG BANG THEORY, and DEXTER - move along. I have grown tired of meeting paint-by-number clones who fall under the same checklist of being a "Geek". Be original, have something to say that doesn't come from a script. I just can't seem to meet for the life of me a DR. WHO fan who I actually click with.
Women with a princess complex or daddy issues need not apply. I hope that leaves some of you standing :)
Also - please have a picture of your FACE as your main pic - I appreciate great boobs and a rockin' bod as much as the next guy - but if your main pic is your boobs - I would like to think that you think more of yourself. We can get to the boobs at a later time...
So, that's me - pretty much. Womp wommpppppp. Womp womp womp.
Last edited 1/27/2014 - John :) - my profile is probably due for an update. Yeah.
