It's really hard to do this part. as It makes me feel as if I'm being full of myself. I am a bit shy (yes being my age and still shy is kinda bad I suppose). However, once I get comfortable, things get better from there.
I watch football from time to time every season. I'm a huge Panthers fan.
I game. Whether it be video, board or cards. It is who I am. Grew up around it and it is a part of my life. I fully tend to take up streaming when I have the chance to. No this doesn't mean I need to "grow up" and it also doesn't mean I'll ignore anyone over a game.
I am pretty much the epitome of "Don't judge a book by its cover". It has taken me a long time to realize that about myself. I'm a smart, caring, funny, hell just about a great mixture of all good qualities rolled up into one! I'm not going to lie and say I'm perfect, far from it, but despite all of my shortcomings, I'm just a pretty awesome dude (topping it off with a nice blend of book smarts and common sense, however some things I do make it seem I lack both!)
I firmly believe in establishing a friendship first and seeing where that leads.
I'm on the track to actually taking control of my life again. The journey will be long and hard, but I know it'll pay off in the end. For once, I'm excited to finally conquer the fears that have weighed me down for so long (except clowns, spiders and heights. Those are still the 3 nopes).
I'm also really good at listening. It's such a rare quality, I know. But I enjoy listening more than I do talking.
Apparently I'm NOT good at writing opening conversation starters lol
Movies: I like some comedies, action, although I'm sporadic on the horror. I like horror, not gore. I feel like ever since Saw and movies like that, people have relied on shock value for horror. Like "Oh let's have all this blood and guts spurting everywhere, that's scary!" No, that's just sick. I'm old school when it comes to horror. Letting your mind scare the bajeebus out of you instead of being told when to be scared. But that's getting off track! I also enjoy the Fantasy movies like Willow, Conan, Legend, etc. I grew up in the 80s where those movies were kinda prominent.
Music: I'm open about music, with the exception of country and real hardcore rap. I just don't do well with either of those categories.
Foods: Practically anything other than what I don't like. I hate onions and peppers and no there is nothing "wrong" with me.
If I ever hit the lottery, who would really want to get to know me for my awesome personality, or would see $$$. Believe me, I can weed them out. :p (Oops, was that one of the wrong red flags to post on a dating profile because a Buzzfeed article said so?? My bad)
My brain goes 100 mph. Sometimes I think about literally nothing, other times I think so hard I over-analyze every single little thing. So I guess you can say that sometimes I can think of everything and nothing... all at once? Can't tell you how many times I've talked myself out of situations, with mixed results, because I just ran it through my mind 1,000 times.
ok fine, I'll give you a freebie: I'm afraid of clowns. Wait no, I already admitted to that. Hmmm. We will just have to leave that under the TBD column.
