From Jersey and an avid film buff. I am honest, loyal and am attracted to people of the same nature. I tend to follow my gut in life and it has kept me out of trouble for the most part. I'm drama free and extremely self aware to the point where I will usually call myself out when being cheesy or drop a lame joke(it's not often). Been through enough in life to see the big picture and ignore petty BS. I feel blessed for the friends and family that surround me. I prefer quality people over quantity in my life. I can be a smartass but it's all in good fun and never mean spirited. I truly go out of my way to be a decent human being and live by the old adage " treat others the way you want to be treated." As simple as that sounds, not many practice it. I'm not a huge fan of writing about myself, as this little box isn't going to give you who I am. If you are so inclined to reach out, you might be surprised. I consider myself a normal guy (have integrity, sane, a character when I want to be and real) just looking for someone great to compliment and add to my life. I'm not here to waste anyone's time and hope to not have mine wasted either. We are all on here for one reason or another, I just want to meet someone who makes me better and brings out my best qualities. If this comes off as too serious then we aren't right for each other, just trying to be direct and I wish you the best. I'm here hopefully to make a connection.
Disclaimer: I am awful with writing emails on here, just extremely awkward for me for some reason, don't judge to much, I'm not as lame as I will probably come off.
*Also, I just looked at what OKcupid thought of my personality, it couldn't be further from the truth. I don't think answering a questionnaire on a dating website is going to put me into a box and let you know who I am. Say hello, you might like what you hear.
I read people very well and am extremely self aware.
I have a 6th sense for spotting famous to semi famous people anywhere I am. It's a curse I tell you!

Paradoxical Commandments by Dr. Kent M. Keith 1. People are illogical, unreasonable, and self-centered. Love them anyway. 2. If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives. Do good anyway. 3. If you are successful, you win false friends and true enemies. Succeed anyway. 4. The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway. 5. Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable. Be honest and frank anyway. 6. The biggest men and women with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the smallest men and women with the smallest minds. Think big anyway. 7. People favor underdogs but follow only top dogs. Fight for a few underdogs anyway. 8. What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight. Build anyway. 9. People really need help but may attack you if you do help them. Help people anyway. 10. Give the world the best you have and you'll get kicked in the teeth. Give the world the best you have anyway.
