***** you have been warned*****
I'm a dorky and politically confusing individual that drives truck, listens to techno/industrial, enjoys the outdoors(namely camping and possibly biking and kayaking), plays random PC video games(steam FTW), and loves all that is goodwill(yes, I mean the store). I have a strange pension for brutal, unrelenting honesty(that is to say, that if you ask a question, no matter how personal, ill answer it completely and totally truthfully). Oh, and I'm also one of those rare and elusive men that believes in chivalry, though a more modern version. Don't expect me to toss my coat in a puddle so you can walk over it, I will likely give you a very funny look.
I'm also a very career oriented individual. I grew up believing in hard work, I didn't enjoy the parties that others got to go to, I instead spent my nights working dead end jobs. Its taken time, but it paid off well enough. I want more than anything to find a woman who is equally career oriented. Someone who put getting a job ahead of the parties, someone who wants a better life, a house, the picket fence, some kids(likely playing lawn darts), all that bullshit. Its corny, but I believe in it. I want someone who can work hard, and at the end of the week, put aside some time to go out and do something, OR stay in and kill zombies playing Left 4 Dead with me.
However, I'm not the obsessive videogamer most people expect. I can spend a few hours in a day playing on and off, but, after that period of time, I absolutely HAVE to do something productive, Its a balancing act for me. the video games are my outlet from a life of seriousness. I currently work 10-14 hours a day, so at the end of the week, I have to balance all that out with a few hours of me time and then I do my cleaning and bills and such. Its why I want someone who I can share all this with, even if you prefer doing something other than playing video games. Personally Id much rather be camping, but setting up a campground is time consuming and its one of those things best done only once in a while rather than every weekend. Alternately there's Kayaking, but Id prefer to do that with a partner in case I have a problem on the lake. I also bicycle if the weather permits.
I'm a fairly cautious person by nature.
I am geeky, silly, and open-minded (and my demon name is "Destroyer of minds, wielder of puns" or at least that's what a friend tells me..... I wasn't aware I had one....)

I hope to quit driving truck one day. Its a fantastic job and I'm proud to be doing it, but in all honesty, it ain't much fun being a truck driver when it comes to attempting to have a social life. Also, I dislike being compared to the vast majority of the drivers out here, some of them make the Unibomber look positively normal.
I'm also working toward getting my own place, which I do intend to buy. Right now I'm living with my grandfather. We both have similar attitudes and he needed someone to help with the bills. His is the house I plan to buy if possible because of its history with our family.
FYI, my truck driving does not mean I'm the type that doesn't bathe, listens to country, bitches about Obama or is excessively overweight. Truck drivers are like Starburst, we're all a bit chewy though some of us taste better than others. I'd hope I'm more of a lemon flavor as I can be sour sometimes, but usually I'm fruity, yet sweet. Yes, this means I do get stuck in your teeth, so be prepared for cavities.
Cooking. I cook for my grandfather and he likes my cooking. I usually enjoy things with cheese and BBQ sauce on them the most, but I'm also known for involving broccoli in the mix. Making awesome brownies lately. BTW, I'm terrible at cooking vegan, so Its probably not a good idea to ask. Not to say that I wont give it a try, and I don't mind dating vegans, but I'm happy with my meaty things. I tend to cook in that direction most of the time but Ive been picking up tips to cook a little healthier while not abandoning meat entirely. I'm trying to cook slightly more organic while not going the "purely" organic route. I'm convinced its a gimmick. Farmer's markets usually work just as well, much cheaper, and without the stupid "organic approved" stamp of approval.
My sarcasm, my sense of humor, and the puns.... OH THE PUNS.... they do not stop!!!
My sweet tooth, which usually leads to a lot of ice cream, usually cookie dough or fudge brownie. Ive found a way to mix the finest combination ever devised.... fudge brownie ice cream with booze, and no, it doesnt curdle the milk. :3 Its like drinking alcoholic caramel fudge brownies in liquid awesome.
Oh, and I'm short, so no references to lucky charms, I might be a Leprechaun, but I dont have any gold worth stealing...... not yet anyways, I do have a rich uncle.... (correction: hes poor, so no lucky charms for you)
A Whisper of Wings by Paul Kidd and Ready Player One by Ernest Cline. Absolutely my favorite 2 books ever. I prefer sci fi and fantasy novels, but Ive also a smaller interest in mystery and Paranormal Suspense(as well as the occasional romance), so I have a wide variety of tastes with books. I also enjoyed the Xanth series, Jane Lindskold's wolf series, Brian Jacques' "Castaways of the Flying Dutchman"(magnificent book), The Spellsinger series by Alan Dean Foster, Charles De Lint's "wolf Moon", CJ Cherryh's Chanur saga, Andrew Swann's Moreau series, KD Wentworth, and Lisanne Norman's Sholan Alliance series. Been reading a lot of Heinlein and Christopher Moore. If you know anything about these books, you will notice a trend. Oh, and Dresden Files is awesome.
Most(if not all) starship flight combat games(IE Wing Commander, Galaxy on Fire 2, DarkStar One, Etc...) Many various RPGs(FF series, Legend of Legaia, Vindictus, etc...), and some RTS and FPS series if the game story is good enough. MacGuffin's Curse and a handful of other puzzle games. I'm not big on MMOs because they all tend to be about mindless grinding or farming of stuff, and then your life goes to s#%t because you never leave your computer. I finally saw the trend when I noticed I had a friend that would rather play WoW than get romantic with his girlfriend. Naturally I canceled my subscription a week later.
Fringe, Supernatural, Stargate, Sanctuary, The walking Dead, Lie to me, Misfits(Hulu Exclusive show), Eureka, Warehouse 13, Better off Ted, Agents of Shield, Almost Human, Arrow, Pretender(an older show), Dexter, Breaking Bad, Various Star Trek tv shows, and Chuck.
"second hand Lions", "Limitless", "John Carter", "Never Cry Wolf", "The Abyss extended edition", "Green Street Hooligans", "fight club", "lucky number slevin", "Fifth Element", "Scary movie 1" and "2", "Shawshank Redemption", "American Beauty", Johnny Depp movies, Adam Sandler movies. I love pretty much all varieties of movies except for horror movies. Modern horror movies just generally fail to scare me. I grew up watching the Hellraiser movies, the Alien Trilogy, and anything else gory and scary that no child should ever grow up watching. :P Ive only seen a few that succeeded in bringing even the mildest of startled surprises out of me. Not to say that they cant scare me, just that they haven't. I'm game if you want to challenge me though.
Bleach, One Piece, Bagi monster of mighty nature, Fairy Tail, and the ORIGINAL Dragonball(before the constipated battle noises of Z), Hayao Miyazaki films, Mamoru Hosada films(director of Summer Wars and Wolf Children), and a few others that catch my fancy. I like anime with more of a story and less of a bunch of overly muscular teenagers grunting in constipation. Oh, and Naruto sucks(yes, I said it, what you gonna do about it?) I know it isn't Japanese anime, but the original Avatar series was and still is, one of the best animated series out there.
Food: Most anything meaty and home cooked. I will however try just about any food once. I love Indian food. I also love Ice cream and milkshakes the way Bill Clinton loves interns. Yep, fresh, creamy, and under the table. With or without nuts XP Though I dont know if its a bad sign that I prefer chocolate.... Ok, Ill stop XD
Music: I listen to Trance, Goa, psytrance, industrial, some metal bands, certain classic rock, and some 80s pop groups. Included are bands like: NIN, Green day, Lonely Island, VNV Nation, Crystal Method, Delerium, Marilyn Manson, Orgy, Garbage, Hybrid, Blackmill, Eiffel 65, Placebo, Fatboy Slim, Perfect Circle, Puscifer, Synthetic Dream Foundation, Mushroomhead, and Prodigy. I will also admit to enjoying classic Micheal Jackson(before he turned into Skeletor) "YOU IS ALL IGNANT!!!" FYI, if my music tastes are not your thing, I can be just fine finding ones that we can share. I do like a lot of 80s and other classic rock, if only to recognize the classics. And our music tastes obviously dont have to be identical, though Country and rap are among two genres that I find it pretty difficult to relate to or develop any interest in.
Geeky stuff. childhood Cartoons, PC Video games, etc...
broccoli...... WHAT!?!?!?! hey, its good when its cooked right!!! Plus it makes me poop, and as we all know, everyone poops.
Juice or iced tea. I love green iced tea, cranberry grape juice and Ruby Red Grapefruit. I drink all Juice like some people drink soda or coffee. Also, I drink a lot of fluids because I have to, so expect me to go through jugs of random drinks, especially the above mentioned ones.
Books, reading, audio books, etc..... I tend to go through youth series like Percy Jackson and other series of myth/legend origin(especially werewolves) and through all manner of other scifi and fantasy series, though I found I could NOT do GoT, so dont ask. Too darned depressing.
The Internet, after-all, where else would I get my source of free porn? I use it to keep up with friends, and to watch stuff on Hulu/netflix.
A vehicle. Transportation is one of those things a lot of people take for granted, and I try to take care of mine.
I also ponder fantasy and sci-fi related stuff like zombies, werewolves, and how lame sci-fi original movies are. (OMG SHARKTOPUS!!!)
Finally I sit around and wonder both how Match.com could think that taking so many of the better features of this site out would have been a good idea.... AND how hypocrites can exist, by rules of math, shouldnt they cease to exist?(combining positive with negative equals zero)
Oh, and how does one have "casual sex" I mean if sex were so casual, does that mean I can wear nothing for "casual friday" And is there casual dress for casual sex? do I just need slacks, maybe a sweater..... or a sweater vest..... because thats the kinkiest thing ever..... Im hoping you are all having dirty thoughts of Mr Rogers now..... yes, you can sock me in the arm if we go on a date.
...If you have a car and a job to support making trips to fun places. I especially like women who are self-sufficient. No really, I cannot stress this one enough. Self-sufficient is a necessity, which is why its near the top.
...If you have an attitude. I prefer smart-asses to the meek ones out there. I have that kindof sense of humor.
...If you like werewolves, zombies and related discussions or movies.
...If you just want to chat. I got aim, yahoo, and unlimited talk and text on my cell. I prefer chatting over the phone tho because I can put on my headset and talk for about an hour or so while driving, keeps me from getting bored while driving. Being bored equals bad because I tend to fidget or get sleepy, so you are doing a community service by calling me while im driving as ridiculous as that sounds.
...If you read my profile and DIDN'T take me completely seriously, laughed, and thought my sense of humor might be worth having around. Afterall, I'm limited edition, and I do not come on compact disc.
...Or if you are a complete dork, look good in a bathing suit, and want to go to the Bahamas for a week, no seriously, I won a trip and I want someone with a nice butt to take.... Not true anymore, I went, it was a blast, but Id be happy to go again for kicks..... and to see you in a bathing suit..... :3
In case some of you haven't gathered, I am a smartass and I try to enjoy life for what it is, an adventure. But with all things in life, there are always going to be some things I can't live with. The following are reasons you shouldn't message me unless you plan to only want to be friends. I feel the need to warn you because I'm on here to find freinds AND a partner. If you only want a partner, and something below fits you to the T, understand that these are all issues Ive had in previous relationships. I dont want to waste your time and Im one of those guys that feels the need to communicate things up front.
If something in the following fits you, I can promise you it wont go beyond a few dates or basic friendship. Before you read this, know that Im going to stop the jokes long enough to get serious. If you cant be serious with yourself and know that Im not making fun of you, Im being critical, because Ive judged myself by these same standards, so if you cant do the same, I really dont know what to tell you other than i suggest you not get angry with me. These are all issues that I personally had with previous relationships.
...If you don't have a job or a career and aren't really interested in ever getting either of the two. I'm at the stage in my life where I want a responsible partner. I'm fine going out on a few dates with someone who doesn't make much, but I need a career oriented woman, even if you just own a struggling business you are trying to work so long as youre passionate about it. Working at Walmart wont cut it, namely because you and I both know they'll find a reason to fire you two days later if they want. They did for me. Also, they don't pay worth a damn and you're wasting your life trying to build a career at that hellhole.
...If you are over the age of 25 and don't have your license. Medical reasons aside, you would have had 10 years to get a drivers license, and if it hasn't happened yet, it never will. I can only deal with this so far before I'll call it quits. Insisting on riding your bicycle to work is one thing or even being unable to afford having a car(I get it, cars are expensive), but you can't tell me you don't have a reason for at least getting the drivers license part out if the way. sorry if that hurts your feelings, but I'm nobody's chauffeur.
...If you want to save my soul because I don't go to church often enough(which is probably once a year, if even that). No offense, but my belief in god shouldn't be an issue. If you believe otherwise, it wont work out. Yes, I do have a beleif, but I don't often talk about it because I feel that nobody gets to tell me or anybody else what to beleive in. Ive discovered this bothers people so I'm making this known beforehand. I believe in praying only when its something that I have no power over, like a dangerous surgery on a family member. I believe if there is a god, he isnt found in houses of stone, but in the trees and hills that surround us day to day. My Christian/new age belief structure is very mellow, and I'm not looking forward to anyone pushing me into regular church visits.
...If you have any intention to drag me to a football game, or make me watch one on the TV. For several personal reasons, I have to refuse to watch football. I wont even watch it with my grandfather, and I absolutely adored him my whole life. Most other sports I have no problem with and some I will enjoy going to games, even if I wont play much of them in my spare time(baseball, hockey, soccer, etc). and I enjoy a lot of other outdoor activities, But, American football is of no interest to me. If you want to watch in your spare time without trying to include me, I'm fine with that. I MIGHT, much farther into our relationship, be ok with going to one game, just to get out and do something, but thats debatable. Again, personal reasons, mostly relating to high school. Its a long story, you are of course, free to ask over dinner.
...If you plan to smoke around me or do drugs around me. I dont care what you do away from me, but if I ever find myself sitting next to you, or fairly close by, and you're puffin on SOMETHING.... I will likely leave, and probably not come back. I dont need drugs in my life, and I'm proud to say I never started smoking, and never had any urge to do so either. Also, Asthma sucks....
