My self-summary
Describe myself? Well, I'm high-strung and I hate laughing. Music isn't really my thing and I'm about as anti-social as they come, so my Friday nights usually consist of playing Scrabble... by myself. Unfortunately, I don't like to win at anything, so Friday's are a sad day, as I incessantly beat myself.

What do I want in a girl? For starters, she has to hate her family and I'd prefer for her to be completely lacking friends. A prickly demeanor is a must; severe back acne and Satanic tattoos are a plus.

I kid, I kid. It just seems like everyone's profiles are exactly the same on here, doesn't it?

As for the real me, I'm an easy-going engineer (yes, that is generally an oxymoron) who recently moved back to Michigan after a year in Minneapolis. I'm making tons of amazing friends around here and I definitely love being close to my family again... especially my nieces and nephews! I'm big into sports, motorcycles and pretending to play guitar. I work to live, not the other way around.

So, what do I want in a girl? A 6 foot athletic blonde that loves to give back massages? Uh, yeah... what self-respecting man doesn't? But that doesn't really matter. I'm really looking for a woman that isn't selfish and continually proves that life is about helping other people; a woman who is genuinely kind, and loves curling up with a goofy movie as much as going to the bar; a woman who loves God more than anything. Add a sense of humor and loads of spontaneity to that list-- life needs to be entertaining.
What I’m doing with my life
I recently graduated from the University of Michigan(GO BLUE!) and now work as a mechanical design and testing engineer. I'm not nearly nerdy enough to fit in at work, so my current plan is to marry into money and spend the rest of my life playing golf on some island in the Caribbean. If that doesn't work out, I suppose I'll continue on my current path: I'm in a rotational program at work that's preparing me for future leadership roles, and I'm taking seminary classes on the side. You know, because who doesn't want to moonlight as a pastor?
I’m really good at
Back massages--an odd quality, I know, but I've never heard anyone complain about getting a killer back rub.

Also, I can jump really high for a 6'2" white kid :P
The first things people usually notice about me
I've been told I look a lot like Mr. Incredible-- I think Mr. Incredible just looks Dutch ;)

In all honesty, it's usually my blue eyes or my half-curly hair. My hair is only curly on part of my head... it's ridiculous.

Aside from my looks, girls often notice that I'm old school chivalrous. My momma taught me to always be respectful, to open doors and to always pick up the check.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love movies! My favorites are almost all comedies, though I'm not scared to venture outside the genre.

I listen to a lot of different music-- mostly different variations of rock and country, but I get into just about everything. I'm a sucker for anything acoustic. The new Jack's Mannequin album currently has me hooked.

I love food, I love to cook and I try to stay healthy. One of those traits is easy to satisfy, the others take more work.
The six things I could never do without
Salvation through faith in my savior Jesus Christ-- A thousand times I've failed, still [His] mercy remains. And should I stumble again, Still I'm caught in [His] grace.

Family-- I'm the youngest of 5 kids... youngest by 15 years... which means I have 12 amazing nieces and nephews!

And, rounding out the top 6: Friends, basketball, blue 5 gum and Sunday afternoon naps... in that order.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Anything and everything. Concentration isn't my strongest suit, so I change topics frequently!
On a typical Friday night I am
playing on a soccer team right after work, then showering up and heading out with friends! While I think there's a time and place to sit around, I'd much rather be out-and-about.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Any prospective relationship between us is ultimately pointless, as I'm determined to marry Taylor Swift someday. A six foot blonde AND she pulls in $45 mil a year? I'll get my tall girl and I can retire ;)
You should message me if
You have fingers and a keyboard.

I am strongly attracted to intelligence. If you can't properly distinguish between your and you're(and yore, if you speak in Old English), its and it's , or can't compose a complete sentence, I likely will not respond. Also, if I see that you answered "The Earth" on the "Which object is bigger?" match question... don't bother to message me. I won't respond, and I'll likely write a strongly worded letter to your middle school science teachers.

::Note:: If you can distinguish between your, you're and yore, AND speak in Old English, I may be impressed. Or incredibly freaked out. Scribe ye at thine own risk.

If you feel you satisfy the aforementioned requirements, message away!
