Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I will add this at the beginning (i've done my research!) to
hopefully clear up any weirdness. Or maybe it'll cause more. Who
Yes, I understand that this site makes me appear to be a little
stalker-ish. I sometimes need a few attempts before actually
crafting a custom-tailored, neat-o note and hitting 'send' on the
first message, so yes, I will probably visit your profile more than
once to try and think of something clever to send. I do actually
read what you ladies write and reply accordingly and honestly.
Then, of course, after I send that first one, I'll think of
something WAAYYY better. If I came by, didn't write ya, and you
feel like we could be great together, go ahead and send me a
Also, if you just think you would like to get to know me a little
more, send me a note. I do not bite... If I do not reply, things
just didn't seem to click. Happens to me all the time too, so keep
your chin up, buckaroo!
I am an Army brat from nowhere that moved here in 1989. I have
pretty much only lived in NE ATL in the 'burbs, but I am not afraid
to get out once in a while. I still haven't been married, and still
I was a vegetarian for about 4 years. I gave it all up when the
McRib came back. True story.
I like just about everything. I only dance if I'm drunk. I do have
a "victory move" that's acceptable anytime. I buy strangers in bars
drinks if they look like they're having a bad day. I am pretty sure
I gave myself the dia-beet-us with all the shit I keep in my desk
drawer. I'm not on my way to losing a foot or anything, I just
refuse to work unless I have Ding-Dongs and Oreos close at
I have a problem with efficiency: I load the dishwasher from the
back to the front, I clean as I go when I cook, I recycle, I be
sure to finish leftovers before making something new, and these
sorts of things sometimes drive others crazy. It makes sense,
dammit! Why don't you get that?
Believe it or not, I'm actually a very nice guy.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work in credentialing so there's a lot of detail involved and
specific procedures to follow. It can be a bit overwhelming at
times, but I haven't burned out yet. Going on 9 years In this
field, but I'd give it all up to be a CATV contractor again if the
money was consistent.
I still do side work when the opportunity presents itself and am no
stranger to the barter system. I get paid in beer or food all the
time, so more often than not, I come home with nothing.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Well, first off, I'd like to clarify that I think I'm good at these
things. I have no idea what others think.
1. Moving friend's shit. (multiple times!)
2. Giving long, awkward hugs.
3. Cooking without measuring anything.
5. Singing alone in my car. (damn right it's my version of the
Okay, I know for a fact I suck at the last one, but I like to do
6. Making it seem like I know what I'm doing when I may not. Call
it a gift.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm sorta tall, I'm usually smiling, or I have a stain on my shirt
or a dryer sheet stuck to me. I am often the only one in church
with a 6-pack of Miller Lite tall boys hanging from my belt.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I am more of a periodical reader, not so much into books. I read
enough at work. I do enjoy "interesting fact" books though, and own
a couple. It will prepare me for the great bar trivia showdown,
when it happens.
I really enjoy silly movies and tend to watch the same ones
whenever they are on. Some of my standards include Step Brothers,
Grandma's Boy, Let's Go To Prison, Idiocracy, The Shawshank
Redemption, The Big Lebowski (they don't show that one much), The
House Bunny, Yes Man, and Major League (my current #1).
I listen to any kind of music. I do not choose Country, but I'm not
opposed to it. I love NOFX, The Descendents, Bad Religion,
Metallica, Snapcase, The Cranberries, Madonna, Lisa Loeb, The
Misfits, 311, DMB, Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Slayer, and a slew of
I love to cook and love to eat. I really enjoy cooking for other
people and have even more fun when multiple cooks are working. Not
on the same dish, of course...you know the saying, unless that only
applies to soup. I'm not willing to take that risk. I'll tell you
now, I have a seafood allergy, but I can always find something to
eat. If sushi's your favorite thing in the world, I have no problem
going with ya! There's actually a place by my house that has the
best and most unusal Teriyaki Chik'n. Love it!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Diet Coke, teh funnay, music, my asshole friends, Cinnamon Toast
Crunch (or equivalents), and BBQ sauce.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Why all of my higher-percentage matches are so much younger than
me. Maybe I'm young at heart.
How i'm consistently getting set up with psychopaths by my
"friends". I think I need a break from crazy girls.
Whether or not dating someone who has a higher "enemy percentage"
might be more fun? Maybe nothing brings people closer together more
than a knock-down, drag-out brawl on a first date. If anything, our
stories will certainly be more interesting than other couples'.
Also, would a "post-first internet date" survey be a good idea? It
could certainly help the other person out with future ones, if
I don't spend a lot of time thinking about this one but it did come
up recently: are there any guys' profiles that specifically state
that they will ignore a girl if they have a photo of themselves
shirtless in front of their bathroom mirror? I doubt it...
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Chasing skirts, hanging with my friends, flirting with
Also, I am trying SOOOOO very hard not to slap the shit out of
people that use the term "bucket list" in any kind of seriousness.
This tests my patience daily, not only on the weekends. I haven't
hit anyone yet, which shows that I am a relatively decent guy, but
PLEASE stop using it people!!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I had a bad-ass mullet when I moved here.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You want to.
Also, keep in mind, I DO like actually meeting people in person, so
do not feel threatened or uncomfortable if I ask. I will try and
think of a casual place (or you can choose) close to you that is
comfortable, decently lit and populated. We can grab a drink or
snack after work or whatever to see if we click. Sound OK?
