I do think it's an awkward thing to talk about yourself in one of these. I mean, you want to come across as interesting and unique, but you don't want to get too braggadocious and look like a complete ass. I'll try my best to stick with the truth, and just maybe you'll think I'm someone you want to know (HINT: I am!).
On the surface, I probably seem like a nice, genial guy. And I am, it's how I was raised. I spent the better part of the first 27 years of my life living in Iowa, so I will totally be more polite than you any day of the week. Sorry, but that's just how it is.
And I love Iowa, I really do. There's a whole lot about the place that is very worthwhile. But I realized when I was in high school that Chicago was the place for me. I don't know if it was the great food, the vibrance of the city, or just the fact that something was always happening, it caught my heart and never let go. Coming from a fairly small town, it was a complete change of pace, and I wanted it. And maybe it took me a few years, but I got here and I've been pretty happy about it ever since.
But get to know me and you'll find I'm more than just a nice guy. I'm fun to be around, I'm goofy, I can hold my own in most any conversation, and I love to laugh. I'm admittedly pretty dorky about a lot of stuff, and I think my life is a blast.
I love getting out and exploring the city, especially finding new restaurants. Think you know the best Chinese place? Let me know. Know any margaritas that are more killer than Cesar's? Show me. I dare you.
I also need karaoke to live. No exaggeration. I have a few songs I can rock, and I keep looking to expand my arsenal.
But if I don't feel like going out, that's fine. I'm comfortable hanging out, watching a movie or playing games. I even love doing puzzles.
So send me a message. I love hearing from people, whether you're looking for a friend or more. I'll do my best to reply!
