I recently bought my first home and have been personalizing it to fit me better. I used to frequent the auto auction and buy / sell cars, but lately have been in more an advisory role to friends. I am pretty mechanically minded and don't mind a little wrenching. So I can fix things, houses, cars, whatever.
I'm family oriented. My family is rather important to me, probably the reason I'm still in Ohio instead of a warm, tropical place. My grandfather is one of my heroes whom I attempt to be more like; he was a well-respected business owner with a heart of gold.
When its not learning or work, I am working on my house or going out and catching up with friends. I am currently training for a marathon, the Akron in September. But also in the summer I go boating, jet skiing, other running events, or working on cars. I also grew up on quads and getting muddy, so no fear of the the outdoors. In the winter, I ski, play poker, indoor rock wall climbing, and focus on self-improvement. I'm not one to sit and watch a sporting event (MMA, NHRA, WRC, F1, or Powerboat P1, some hockey being the closest things I watch with any regularity), I am a doer. I greatly prefer individual sports to team ones. That being said a friend can drag me to a Tribe or Ducks game and I can get through haha.
Regardless of the season, I like meeting new people. I enjoy groups, debate, conversation, showing people new things, and going on adventures. I'm reasonably well traveled, with a few Caribbean passport stamps, but always looking to see new places.
Making people laugh or making them think.
Anything dealing with cars- specifically American cars.
Turning people onto new things- foods, friends, festivities.
Helping self-confidence and self-body image in others through my art.
Completing self-set goals
I've been told the intensity in my eyes, a nice smile, and also have nice legs and a nice butt.
Some college buds told me I am rather charismatic. If they say so...
Although I have a lot of movies listed, I don't consider myself a movie buff.
Movies: I love vampire movies- UnderWorld series, Queen of the Damned, Interview with a Vampire, Blade series, Van Helsing. I'm a avid fan of war movies, both classic and modern warfare- Gladiator, Braveheart, Troy, Alexander, Saving Private Ryan, The Patriot, Enemy at the Gates, Alien series, 300, Transformers, Iron Man. I like comedies- Monty Python (anything), anything Mel Brooks, Super Troopers, Anchorman, Old School, Wedding Crashers, American Pie series, Office Space, MST3K (movie and show), Shaun of the Dead, Half Baked, Team America: World Police, Porky's, Airplane series. I also like martial arts / fighting movies: Kill Bill series, Hero, Romeo Must Die, Resident Evil series, Tomb Raider series, most things Jet Li or Jackie Chan, Matrix series
TV: Shark Tank, The Profit, American Horror Story, Big Bang Theory, Community, How I Met Your Mother, Naked and Afraid, Survivorman, Modern Marvels, Overhaulin', Top Gear
Car Mags: Automobile, Motor Trend, Road & Track, Car & Driver (I like to keep up with the latest car info).
But for books: I like the Iliad and the Odyssey by Homer. Also The Prince by Machiavelli. Kama Sutra was an interesting read. Some writings of Greek philosophers are pretty cool. The Start-up Owners Manual. I don't read for pleasure, but more so to gain knowledge, skills, and and better understanding of the topic of my interest- knot tying, palm reading, project management, leadership, aerodynamics, you name it...
The Great Gatsby and Great Expectations were good classics. Some of the Transcendentalists writings are enjoyable too.
Food: I like a variety - seafood, sushi, Vietnamese, Japanese, Thai. Can't go too long without a good steak. Spicy Caribbean and authentic Mexican are also amazing. I like some Italian, Greek, a little French. My family cooks Polish, which is alright. I'm a chocohaulic and dessert fanatic. I enjoy nice, dry wine paired with a good variety on a cheese board. I couldn't live with a vegan, but could likely work with an open-minded vegetarian.
-My Family and Friends
-Downtime from the grind (work, events, house, cars can get overbearing all at once.)
-Quality Entertainment, whatever it may be.
-Competition (I need the measuring stick to constantly push me to better)
-My toys (my cars, jetski, skiis, etc.)
Inventing. Moving, shakin', making change and an impact in the world. Trying to hit that home run and change the world for better.
.How to start a profitable business that will positively impact the world and help me have time to enjoy life, seeing all the things I want to see.
Random things: What other people are thinking, how to improve myself, did I spread myself too thin, how did I get into this mess? Personal goals. Sex, money, elevating my status in the world. Cars and how to modify them, even if its unrealistic.
I may also be catching up on Shark Tank, The Profit, free online entrepreneurship / venture financing short courses. Tinkering on my invention, doing customer research. I plan on being stupid wealthy and am willing to give up a weekend here or there to get there.
My weekends are pretty much my only downtime currently, so I relax and also find small projects I can get done to feel like I "did" something. I've done plumbing, electrical, chainsawing, and home maintenance all within the first 3 months of ownership.
I'm kinda investing for my future now, so saving my money and working on building something greater. I'd like a girl that could value this, perhaps in a similar boat or at least understanding.
My dentist told me I have a condition called "Superhuman." I always knew it. ;)
I feel I am horribly un-photogenic. But found an awesome quote that matches my feelings on the matter: http://rebloggy.com/post/n-a/71275786624 . I am not Mr. Selfie, that's for sure.
I have several "million-dollar ideas" that I really need to implement. Patent lawyers, angel investors, or design engineers (or friends of) PLEASE message me.
I have a favorite height for women. Basically it corresponds to their being able to rest their head on my shoulder.
I am extremely selective in whom I message. I put in energy and effort in writing this to give details, I'd expect some sort of engaging conversation consisting of more than a line or two. If you do write me a one-liner here, I will very likely ignore it. My take is, if you have written nothing about yourself, you feel that your looks will get you by. I want someone that aspires beyond the trophy wife status.
Ideally you're a college-educated, beautiful bombshell with curves in all the right places and driven-attitude that could keep me on my toes. I'm looking for a strong business-savvy partner, a lover, a best friend, wife material. So you're not just a pretty face, communication is huge. I want kids and a family one day, but I want to experience things together with a life mate as firsts for both of us. Call me greedy for wanting to not have to share you with a past love every holiday for the rest of my life...
