I'm an awkward nerdy guy looking for a wonderful dorky girl. Looking for someone to hang with, go to hip hop and rock shows. Go to art shows. Go to the bookstore. Talk and have lunch, dinner, and a chai tea.
Corpus Christi born and raised. And, yes, I do love my city and the people in it. I believe in romance and taking the time to get to know someone. I love hanging out with my friends. Talking and laughing. Just so you know, my friends are woven into the fabric of who I am. I love to read and learn. Watch movies and TV. I love watching and playing basketball. I also like watching football. Been watching UFC for years. I'm a spiritual person that has no need for organized religion. I enjoy meditation and long spiritual discussions. I also enjoy going to local concerts and art shows. So, as much as I like going out, I am comfortable being a home body, too.
I'm looking for the same in someone. A woman that is down to earth and easy to get along with. Enjoys technology and keeps up with current events.
I'm also staying active. Trying to eat better. I've hit a plateau with losing weight.
My favorite band right now is The Bright Light Social Hour. They're a rock band out of Austin. And, I love them. Me and my friends go to their shows every time they come down here. We rock out like we're at the biggest concert. [Note: If you ever go to one of their shows, please have Detroit memorized. I'm usually screaming the lyrics with my friends.]
And, yes, all this happens in Corpus Christi, Texas. :)
Michael Jackson was my idol as a kid. I still love him, his music, and his shows.

A good pair of running shoes
I've been dealing with an anxiety condition for the past six years. Its something I don't really talk about. But, I have to be honest on here. Why turn an ant hill into a mountain?
It prevents me from traveling. Which is the worst. I love to travel. There are times I don't like driving at night.
I've been feeling good lately. Going out and being social like I used to. As much as it can be a curse, I've also seen it as a huge blessing. I truly appreciate life and love. I enjoy the small things. Stress and worry are a waste of time. I don't expect anyone to understand. Only people that cope or have overcome anxiety can do that.
I know this is a deal breaker as far as relationships go. But, I'm always down for a chat and making new friends.
Most importantly, you're a good person. I need a good, amazing woman in my life.
