My self-summary
Hello! Thanks for stopping by! I am looking for my soul mate and I know he's out there! I am looking for a best friend, someone I can cherish, adore, and spend the rest of my life with. This doesn't mean I will rush into marriage or relationships. I prefer to take time.

I'm intellectual, honest, direct, strong-willed, and a leader. I'm playful and goofy and love to joke a lot of times, but I'm also a deep thinker and I would like someone who enjoys thinking, analyzing, and discussing things with me as well as just messing around and having fun. Work-life balance is very important to me. I am very driven and intense about achieving goals. On my down time, I like to laugh, relax, have fun, and forget about work. For fun, I love the physical activity, the outdoors, movies, occasionally bars, music, art, traveling.

I am very romantic, physically verbally affectionate, and an extremely supportive cheerleader in relationships. Equality is important to me and I believe that in a healthy relationship, there should not be an alpha partner. I'm not a control freak who will try to dominate you, judge you, change you, or direct you, so please don't do it to me either. I'm not looking for someone who is perfect, just someone who is the best possible match for me. If you're the guy who fits best with me, I will fall in love with your flaws just as I fall in love with you.

The traits listed below are most important to me in a mate. There are a lot of them, but once I find a fit, I will be 100% satisfied.
- Very romantic, very affectionate, expresses wants to receive a lot of affection verbally physically
- Is independent, has his own life outside of romantic relationships, and doesn't mind spending time apart sometimes
- Has the capacity to love very deeply, cherish, and adore another person and is looking for a deep emotional/romantic connection
- Tough to upset, irritate, or bore
- Is relaxed during his free time and generally doesn't remain uptight and stressed after work is over for the day
- Compromises often in relationships and is only stubborn unless something is extremely important to him
- Confident, yet humble
- Respectful (Anyone who curses, yells, belittles or criticizes women he dates, or calls them names isn't right for me.)
- Enjoys putting a lot of effort into making people he loves happy. I'm the same way, so it won't be one sided.
- A leader who is good at setting, pursuing, and achieving goals.
- Attracted to independent women with strong personalities
- Outgoing, open, and enjoys communicating/ sharing thoughts, feelings, and opinions with those close to him
- Calm jovial demeanor, never loses his temper or has mood swings
- Loves to joke around
- Values family
- Shares my goal to be financially comfortable (Financially comfortable in my book is living free of money stress /or credit card debt, saving a lot for retirement, investing, being able to travel and do fun things, living in a comfortable house, and not going into debt.) Financial strain interferes with relationships, so this is important to me.
- Exercises eats healthy
-On a superficial note, I'm a sucker for a very strong man with broad shoulders and a relatively deep voice. I can't help it;-)
-NO chemical drugs, NO felonies. NO repeated misdemeanor history (DUI/DWI, possession,etc). I run extensive background checks.
- No psychological or psychiatric disorder or addiction issues.
Thanks for your patience in reading this:-) I hope to hear from you!

I spend a lot of time thinking about
my future
On a typical Friday night I am
No Friday night is typical for me. I'm sometimes with my friends at a bar listening to live music, at happy hour, or at a restaurant having dinner, hanging out with my family, babysitting nieces/nephews, exercising, watching a movie, reading, etc.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am on trial for murder in FL, I am wanted for grand theft in TX for stealing a large cow statue form outside a BBQ joint, I'm wanted in OK for vandalizing a mechanical bull, I snuck into the White House and mooned Michelle Obama, I cross dress during my free time, my voice sounds like a man, and I have 11.5 fingers. OK, really, I have no idea what to put here;-)
You should message me if
1. If you read my first essay and believe I am a good fit for you. 2.If you are very romantic. 3. If you're looking for a long term relationship 4. If you know how to be and are comfortable being emotionally and verbally intimate with a person you're dating. (What do I mean by this? If you're not good at understanding or expressing your feelings for someone you love honestly and being receptive to someone who does, we're not a fit. Also, if you're not into expressing your thoughts and listening to others who do, we're not a good fit. These type of expressions are necessary for for verbal and emotional intimacy. I don't get along well with people who put up walls and find it hard to let other people in.)
