While the thought of 'online dating' scares the crap out of me, the bar scene isn't functional, nor is it as much fun as it used to be. So, here I am, looking for friends first, and definitely open to growing a friendship into something more. I'm not interested in one night stands, or friends with benefits type situations......no hookups here!
I love being at our lakehouse in MI, and being outdoors in general.
I work really hard, but truly believe in a work-life balance, and enjoy relaxing and having fun when I'm not at work.
I'm also in the Army National Guard, and take that responsibility seriously.
I enjoy cooking, and while I don't get to do it as much as I'd like to, I used to be good at it! ( I worked as a sous chef after high school, and thought for awhile I wanted to go to culinary school, but I soon realized that not enjoying seafood, would probably keep me from being a great chef.)
I'm very analytical, so dealing with situations, or problems that require analytical thinking, I find I'm pretty good at!
I'm pretty laid back, and easy going, and find myself almost annoyed by uptight, worry-warts. Life is too damn short to be THAT uptight!
Movies: All of Will Ferrell's comedies, Jim Carrey's movies, Boondock Saints, Man On Fire, American Beauty, The Notebook(not just going for brownie points here, I really like this movie!) to name a few!
Shows: Family Guy, The Voice, virtually anything on the Food Network
Music: Pretty eclectic tastes including: Ray Lamontagne, Tony Lucca, 112, Zac Brown Band, Journey, Tupac, Bone Thugs, Keith Sweat, Brantley Gilbert, Over the Rhine, Matt Nathanson, Dave Matthews, Jason Mraz, Jack Johnson.....too name a few. :)
Food: Italian is my fav! Don't care much for seafood, pretty much everything else is fair game!

Anymore beyond that, and you'll have to ask!
