Well, finally updating this for the first time in a while. I hate being judged, so I don't judge others regardless of where they or I may be in my life. I believe one of the worst things you can do in life is compare yourself to others. Instead, compare yourself to what your goals are and where you want to be, and that will be a much more inspiring and, more importantly, permanent motive.
I'm also a realist. I believe in being forthcoming, honest, and direct with others. In the long run, it will help them and help yourselves. It is what I want from others, also, even if it's not necessarily what I want to hear. That being said, there is a real difference between being judgmental and being concerned. If we are to share ourselves with others, sometimes criticism can come off as judgmental, which causes strife. So I try not to offer advice or anything unless directly asked.
I really enjoy listening to people. Many people never get to tell their story, so it's so interesting to hear what people have to say.
I do not have much of a family life and I am not very close with them...so I try to make friends and people from my church close and may consider them, after some time, family.
I am loyal, honest, and compassionate.
What I’m doing with my life
I do sales and accounting for a local home improvement company. While I do enjoy it, I am currently looking to expand upon my career and considering what the next step would be.
I’m really good at
Some people say I'm good at cooking. I guess I can cook alright. I have some good recipes.
I'm really good at listening and talking to people, and giving feedback. I feel it is important to let the other person talk, while I listen and keep an open mind.
I'm a good planner. I try to plan things and be thorough with them. It is really hard for me to sit back and let someone else plan something for me, ha ha.
The first things people usually notice about me
I guess that it's that I don't play games, I'm honest, direct, forward, and trustworthy. I don't see reasons to lie in general. This is not to be confused with being open or telling too much information. I won't tell you my autobiography on a first date (or probably a second or a third), but if you say, "I want to go to X," and I don't want to go, I'll tell you.
Also, my laugh is very distinct. It's not hard to make me laugh either. I can be a bit awkward sometimes, and I'm pretty introverted. It is hard for me to express myself sometimes.
Keeping along those same lines, I have a dry sense of humor. I know it doesn't show much in this profile, but it is there.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Food- This varies from day to day, to be honest. I get weird cravings.
Music- A lot of different music. I'm picky within genres, but there's something from almost every genre I actually like.
Movies- Not much of a movie person, but occassionally I like the action movies, or a romantic comedy, or whatever the person I'm with enjoys.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I think a lot, and probably spend too much time doing it. I do worry (trying to do that less) in general, so sometimes I way overthink something I said or did. But, I spend a lot of time thinking about my future, friends, and how to better myself.
On a typical Friday night I am
Extremely varied. Every Friday night is different so you'll have to get to know me in order for me to fill this out accurately.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I guess I'll say while I'm not a private person per se, I have the
illusion that I am because I'm pretty quiet at first and don't go
in depth a lot. So...I guess that's a privacy related thing.
You should message me if
You are at least close to my age, you like what you're reading or seeing and like my profile, and want to get to know me. Also, message me whereever you are. I like talking to people, even if you're in another state or country.
