I moved out to Illinois in 2015 from Colorado for work, and have been traveling all over central Illinois ever since. It has been fun, but staying in multiple towns each week has made dating difficult, and I find that waiting around for things to happen pretty much gets you no where. That's why I'm here, I'm going to actually try to find someone who is here to date and try and find someone special. (seems like a lot aren't really here for that?). I could use your help though. I mean dating is a team effort after all. I recently found a house to rent in Argenta (small town north of Decatur) and moved my dog Mocha out here to live with me. It's great but we'd both enjoy some additional company. I'll be honest with you, I am a huge nerd, I love video games, anime, anything fantasy-esque, super hero movies...etc. I know some girls aren't into the nerdy lifestyle, so I thought I would be up front with you.
My normal hobbies when I'm not at work include, archery, playing with Mocha, playing video games with my fellow nerds, Netflixing, going driving when the weather is nice (I have a pretty fun summer car), and even though it's not so easy to do here in Illinois, I enjoy just about every activity you can find at the beach, swimming, scuba diving, drinking fruity drinks, kayaking, jet skis and more.
This time last year my focus in life was pretty much: get myself well established with my new career, and I was basically married to my job. Recently my focus has really shifted towards family. Both of my older sisters are married, my oldest sister just had her first baby, and my other sister announced that she's pregnant. When I go home to visit the family, I see my sisters so happy, and I can't help but feel a little envious. I'm not by any means in a rush to get married or have kids, but I really do want to find someone special to spend time with and see where it goes from there. I'm hoping that someone special will be within a couple years of my age, be kinda nerdy, understanding, goofy, a dog lover, a little sassy, honest, and has a little bit of a naughty side. I want a real relationship. One where we go for a walk on a cold snowy night and enjoy the peacefulness, then snuggle up for a movie. One where I occasionally say something stupid and offensive (which I do from time to time) and you stare daggers at me but forgive me. One where when one of us has a bad day, the other one will do whatever they can to help, and if we both have a bad day we just say screw the world and pig out on junk food. You know, that kind of thing.
Making mac n cheese (right out of the box).
Making a fool out of myself.

Family, they're totally nuts... but I wouldn't have it any other way :)
Mocha, having her back in my life is fantastic.
Reasons not to message me: You're more than 6 years older/younger than me (that's not 100% set in stone, but you'd really have to wow me big time), you didn't like what you read about me, aliens are about to abduct you, you're not really looking for a relationship.
