Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
*Note...I am seriously giving some thought to moving to the
Asheville, NC area in the next year or so.
I'm not really very good at these things. I guess that I would say
that I am just a normal, humble, and Grateful guy. If I had to
place myself into a category (which I don't like to do) I would
consider myself a hippie/Deadhead. I work for a living and have a
good job. I am Liberal in my political views. I love music,
reading, art, animals, nature, my kitty-cat, and my friends and
family. And I am a little lonely, which explains why I am on here.
I am looking for companionship more than anything...a friends at
first kind of deal.
I guess that I should mention that I am heavily tattooed. Also, I
am a jeans (or shorts) and t-shirt type guy. I do own a couple of
button ups if the occasion calls for it, sigh. I prefer to be
barefoot or in sandals. Honestly, I am at that age where I prefer
comfort over style. I am never going to cut my hair again and I
threw away my razor many a moons ago.
I guess I should also mention what I am looking for in a new friend
and/or possible mate. First of all, I would like to say that
everyone is beautiful in their own way. I find it sad that our
society puts so much emphasis on beauty, size, and style. What I
find attractive in a woman is how happy she is in her own skin...I
am happy with who I am and how I look, I hope that she would happy
with who she is also. I try to live my life as a Kind, open minded,
compassionate, non-judgmental, and generous human being...those are
qualities that I love and look for in other people, especially in a
mate. I love intelligence in a friend/mate, but not if it comes
with arrogance. How you treat your fellow human beings will tell me
more about you and what kind of person you are than anything. Also,
I prefer to be around people with a mostly positive vibe. Free
spirits and hippies welcome!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work in manufacturing at the Corning plant in Blacksburg, VA. I
have been there for almost 12 years. I do work on night shift and
have kind of a funky schedule, this can make dating a little
In my downtime, I enjoy going to concerts, shows, and music
festivals. I spend a lot of time with my nose buried in a good
book. I like to trout fish, but never seem to have the time to do
so. I don't drink, but on special occasions, I do like to smoke
herb. I am a Virginia Tech sports fan, but I am not a fanatic. I
like all the normal things like going out for dinner, seeing
movies, spending time with Mother Nature, etc.
Please feel free to ask any questions that you may have. :)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I am a good listener. I truly care about other people's well being.
I am a good friend. I try and stay as humble as possible. And I am
so very Grateful for life and all that it has given me. I value
honesty and compassion so much! I try to be generous to all those
that may need it.
Here are a few things that that one might not like about me. I am a
smoker, it is what it is. I can be kind of shy and quiet until I
get to know someone.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I would like to answer this with my eyes...I have been told that I
have beautiful blue eyes. But I would say most people notice my
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Even though I can find music in almost every genre (especially The
Blues, Bluegrass, late 80's -early 90's Alternative, and Reggae)
that I can enjoy. I prefer my old hippie music and jam bands the
Bands I listen to more than other bands:
1. Grateful Dead (and many of the off-shoot Dead bands like
Furthur, Phil and Friends, Ratdog, John K. Band, DSO, etc.)
2. Gov't Mule (and any project that Warren Haynes becomes involved
3. The Black Crowes (And it's off-shoots like CRB, Trigger Hippy,
4. Allman Brothers Band
6. Crosby, Stills, and Nash (and Young)
7. The Band/Levon Helm
8. Pink Floyd
9. Tedeschi Trucks Band
Oh, and I am a huge Eddie Vedder fan.
As far as reading goes, I read mostly fiction. I love to read! I
think that walking around Barnes and Noble (with an iced chai tea
in hand) comparing authors enjoyed makes for a great first date.
Some of my favorite authors are Chuck Palahniuk, John Twelve Hawks,
Dan Wells, Thomas Maltman, Thomas Harris, Anne Rice, and Andrew
Vachss. Two of my favorite novels are "Birdy" by William Wharton
and "The Gargoyle" by Andrew Davidson.
Food? I love to eat and enjoy trying new foods. If I go out to eat,
it is usually something ethnic like Thai or Indian.
Movies...I love them! I prefer dramas and movies with a message
more than other types. Some of my favorites are Seven Pounds,
Leaving Las Vegas, Lost in Translation, Dallas Buyers Club,
Moonrise Kingdom, Up in the Air, and Into the Wild.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. My family and friends
2. A really good book
3. Music..many genres, whatever fits my mood
4. My cat Cali
5. Open mindedness
6. My quest for knowledge
7. Nag Champa incense. (Yes, that is a seventh thing.)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What my next road trip, concert, or adventure will be. Politics and
the state of the world. How I can be a better human being. How I
can benefit my fellow human beings.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
If I am not working, most likely I am at home curled up on the sofa
with my kitty cat and enjoying a good book or movie. If I go out it
is usually to enjoy some sort of live music.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I haven't always been a good guy. But I am now, this came with
work, learning what type of person I want to be, and age. It is a
progressive thing, we never stop evolving...I just try to become a
better person with every day's passing.
