No worries if you are reading my profile in your sweats while you are eating snacks, that how I was when I wrote it.
If you get past my exterior, you will find that I am an warm, playful guy with a quirky sense of humor who once in a while impresses you with the fact that I do have a brain in my head, I was listening, and I found the perfect solution.
I've lived a diverse life interacting with people from many different walks of life, so my range of experience is broad and deep and my stories reflect that.
I have no desire to post a shirtless picture, so those of you who keep asking can stop. If you are unwilling to get to know me as a person you shouldn't get the goodies. I am not a piece of meat.
Since a sense of humor is important to everyone, I must tell you that I have a particularly low brow pedestrian politically incorrect sense of humor with a touch of just plain wrong. I come up with a good one from time to time. There will be times when you smack me while you are laughing, and yes it will have been worth it . I was a stand-up comedian for a while ages ago, so I know how to say things and get away with it, and I always get away with it.
I love people. I love hearing their passions, their struggles and how they have made progress on their way through obstacles to achieve their goals and get closer to a place where their world makes some sense.
I don't expect perfection or want it. I admire and partner with people who can do what I can't.
. I sometimes get bored with surface conversations and would rather a deep connection that makes the interaction worth the time. I appreciate beauty but would like to meet someone with additional positive qualities like humor, warmth, intelligence and a positive outlook.
I have the heart of a child and a mischievous side to my personality. I am very easy going, but work hard and have an ambitious drive to see success. You can take me anywhere and I will turn the dreariest of situations into a rocking good time. I like myself better when I am helping others even though I may sometimes look like a chump.
I like to challenge myself and venture into new situations where I can learn and explore and hopefully gain some additional insight into myself and others. I try to maximize the experience that comes with life, real life, not just going through the motions. I believe that a person can learn from anyone and that having a good education should provide an expanded variety of experiences instead of a narrowed one.
I believe that a person should always be happy with who he/she is and at the same time always try to evolve and improve. I am an easy-going guy who sees the humor in ordinary situations, is calm in times of pressure and if I care about you I'll actually tell you what I really think.
I make a special effort to maintain long term friendships even when it sometimes isn't easy. I'm willing to listen to your problems, but I'd much rather fix them so they don't bother you anymore, and then we can talk about how great I handled whatever it was.
Drinking water. I probably drink more water than your last 3 boyfriends combined.
Dealing with crazy folks.
Designated driving. I don't really like the taste of alcohol, so when I go out, I'll drink club soda or iced tea the whole night anyway.
Keeping other folk's secrets.
Being a good friend.
Finding creative solutions.

MUSIC: I enjoy all kinds of music, except massive amounts of techno or any other music that makes me feel like someone is repeatedly hitting my head with a hammer. Right now I'm particularly enjoying the soundtrack to the Cirque du Soleil show "O" and the band "Fun."
FOOD: I can eat almost anywhere, but I love all ethnic foods: Chinese, Thai, Indian, Vietnamese, Japanese, Mediterranean, Greek, Italian, Cuban, Mexican, Brazilian.
