February 2016 update: Only in this armpit town (50 minutes SW of Ftw) until I graduate this May. I will be immediately moving back to DFW area to teach. All of my friends live in Ft. Worth and I'm there almost every weekend. Let's go get a drink already...

For the ladies lacking patience, here is the quick rundown of my positive traits: Loyal, fun, funny, dependable, kind, thoughtful, understanding, realistic, logical, ambitious, generous, and I'm a great listener.
I think you might find me interesting. I am sort of complex, and I have many layers to me. I'm not for everyone, you must be looking for substance and for someone that has more depth than a pizza box. I like to think that I have an excellent sense of humor. I think anything can be funny, when placed in the proper context. I try to find amusement in as much as possible. I'm very patient and empathetic towards people, it can be both my greatest strength and most tragic downfall. I get that compassion from my Mother I suppose, blah... but on a brighter note, she also instilled in me a serious sense of loyalty, chivalry, and communication.
I am completely and utterly incapable of bullshit at this point in my life. The dos and don'ts of dating are out of the window, I'd prefer upfront brutal honesty and actions that correspond to the moment. No second-guessing about how soon to text back or looking too available on a Friday night. Assolutamente finito, bella.
What I'm looking for is quite simple. I would like to find a girl worthy enough for me to give the world to. My wiring must be faulty because I get an unusual amount of happiness that is contingent upon how happy I can make the girl that I'm amorous toward. She becomes a priority that I'd fight, die, and buy tampons for.
Trivia nights at bars.
I'm a fun and thoughtful dater.

I used to be a Music Director at a radio station, so my taste in music is everywhere.
TV: I'm not a tv watcher... but I stream/download a few well written shows pretty often: Mr. Robot, Vice, It's Always Sunny..., Veep, South Park, Homeland, The Knick, Shameless, and House of Cards.

Food: I'm real easy on that one. I can find something to eat anywhere. Periodically I am strict Ketogenic, but I am easily persuaded to eat whatever.
...even on a typical Friday night
Now I understand how that can make me seem pessimistic, but I assure you that I am not. I am a realist. I learn and try to observe as much as possible in life, with the hopes of being the most balanced and aware person that I can be. I am not interested in appearing to be perfect. In fact, I can ruin the surprise for many of you right now: I have many imperfections. However, I am conscious of most, and I work arduously everyday to evolve past them.

"It's so hard to forget pain, but it's even harder to remember sweetness. We have no scar to show for happiness. We learn so little from peace."

DISCLAIMER: I'm a bit selective, so please be in a healthy condition (physically fit and not be holding a meth pipe as you read this).
Plus, don't bother if you refer to yourself as a fashionista, diva, princess, or anything else that induces an eye-roll.
In a perfect world, attractiveness would not matter, but the fact is: it does and chemistry cannot be established or maintained without it.
