If you've made it this far, you've probably realized that the above paragraph is a bit of a fabrication. I wish I could be perfect in every way, which is what a lot of people seem to look for on these online dating websites, but alas I'm a few notches shy of that mark.
The reality is I have a Masters in Clinical Psychology, and I work a Case Manager in a Community Support Program working with adults with severe persistent mental illness. I am working towards fulfilling my requirements to get my LPC (Licensed Professional Counselor) and hope to one day work as a therapist and with children with autism. In my spare time I have various hobbies to occupy my time and on occasion I've been known to do stand up comedy at local venues when I get the chance.
I enjoy laughter and love making people laugh, I'd like to think I'm hilarious but I'll let you be the judge (The fist paragraph is a pretty good indicator of my sense of humor). Laughter is typically the best medicine, unless you have pneumonia or something- in those cases I would go with antibiotics- but most of the time laughter is the best medicine. But in all seriousness, I enjoy finding humor in all things and like to keep myself and others laughing as much as possible. I do stand-up comedy as a hobby, and if the lack of tomatoes and other rotten fruit being thrown at the stage when I perform is any indicator, I'm not half bad.
Anyways, if you're sick of shirtless guys talking in fragmented sentences and asking you touch their junk, I'm probably a huge step up. If you like to be entertained and love to laugh, I'm probably a big improvement from your last boyfriend (or at least the last creepy guy who hit on you)- just saying.
Also, I have a full head of hair, a job, a stable living situation, and a reliable means of transportation. That's pretty much where the bar starts, isn't it?
Once you get over the height people probably notice my curly hair or my eyes- I have some nice baby blue eyes but I've been told they look like different colors by many people. I just assume those people are colorblind.
Food is a little more complicated. I love a wide range of food. I like sushi, Indian food, Chinese food, Middle eastern food, Italian food, Greek food- basically any exotic cuisine I'm typically a fan of. I'd like to think my palette is pretty sophisticated, even if that does make me sound a little bit like a pompous douche bag. I like to consider myself pretty educated about places to eat and food in Milwaukee- I'm usually the go to guy if people need advice on restaurants.
Music I'm a little all over the place. I tend to like Alternative most of all and I am not a fan at all of Country music. I particularly enjoy Red Hot Chili Peppers and The Offspring. I'll listen to anything I find catchy, unique, intelligent, or moving- as long as it isn't country.
My favorite TV Shows are probably: South Park, Game of Thrones, Futurama, Simpsons, Last Week Tonight With Jon Oliver, It's always Sunny in Philadelphia, Curb your Enthusiasm, The Walking Dead, and of course, my all time favorite- Seinfeld.

If you are an empathetic/ compassionate person who also has a good sense of humor and a bit of sass, and if you see that we share any common interests, I would love to hear from you. I'm looking for a real relationship but we all have to start somewhere!
Also, to save us all a lot of time, here are some things that may potentially disqualify you from messaging me:
*You are VERY religious or want me to be religious. (Nothing against religious people, but it isn't a part of my life and it's never going to be.) Unless Jesus is saving me 15% or more on my car insurance, I'm not interested in being saved.
*You look absolutely nothing like your photos. I try to be honest with what I look like, I'd expect you to do the same. Looks aren't everything, but starting a relationship by deceiving someone isn't the best way to get the ball rolling.
*You can't be bothered to say more than "Hi" or "Hey there" in your message. I'm not asking you to write me a novel or explore every detail in my profile to find the common ground, but a little effort is appreciated and expected if you actually want an intelligent response.
