My self-summary
I'm David and 100% real. No whisker fishing with me. But what else makes me stand out? Well, I can pat my head and rub my belly at the same time. If that skill is not enough to win you over then your standards are way too high. I can also cook beyond frozen or microwavable food and (most important in my book ) don't take shirtless selfies in a mirror. My concern isn't girls thinking I am self-absorbed but believing I don't own shirts. I guarantee my closet has at least one.

I have a Masters in Social Work from GVSU. I'm currently subbing till another opportunity arises, but I've mainly done mental health substance abuse therapy thus far in my career and hope to continue in some regard. I also volunteer as a board member for a charity cosplay group, so I get all kinds of excuses to dress up as comic book characters and make people happy. I keep active by walking, swimming and riding my bike. I like a girl who cares about her health, so I figure not to be hypocritical I should do the same. However I will never be ripped like Ryan Gosling so I'm squashing that expectation right now. But I can say I will never look like Chris Farley as a Chippendale dancer.

What I am looking for? Oh, just that happily ever after Disney made us believe in. Easy, right? Well if only it took a few hours and befriending talking animals to meet someone special but being on here is hopefully a start. Somebody who has a sense of humor, or at least can appreciate mine, would be swell. If I find such a lady I might have to put a ring on her...a Ring Pop that is. It's less expensive than a diamond and probably tastes better.
What I’m doing with my life
Preparing to rule the world. I still need a queen for when this event occurs. I am accepting applications until the position is filled.
I’m really good at
Stopping dragons. Ask yourself when was the last time you saw a dragon in West Michigan? Exactly, you haven't. But since I was so good and there was no sense in letting my skills go to waste I kill wasps...which actually poses more danger of being harmed. Those things are buzzing, stinging assholes!
The first things people usually notice about me
Likely my butt, because people tend to stare. Course it might be because my wallet is there most of the time. I do have a nice piece of leather so I guess I can't fault anybody. After all it holds all my membership cards that can get me discounts. People also comment on how I look younger than my age. But at least they don't say I look like a kid; I would have grandmas pinching my cheeks left and right!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, The Bartimaeus Trilogy, The Corrections, Shit My Dad Says and The Other Side of the River.

Movies: Jurassic Park (and World), Crash, Pan's Labyrinth, The Shawshank Redemption, Lord of the Rings trilogy, American Beauty, How to Train Your Dragon, The Nightmare Before Christmas and The Princess Bride

TV: Mainly sports like Detroit Red Wings, Michigan football and the Detroit Lions (yes, I apparently like to torture myself like many Michiganders), but I also like Family Guy, American Dad, Archer, Bojack Horseman, Breaking Bad, Rick and Morty and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. I'm beyond stoked that Samurai Jack is getting its' final season and a proper ending.

Music: Classic rock and alternative. I like Metallica, Boston, Van Halen, Nirvana, Tool and Foo Fighters to name a few.

Food: Anything that tastes good, particularly Italian, seafood and Chinese. But more important anything good for my body. That thing called metabolism is starting to slow down so I can't consume half a pizza anymore without seeing the results in the mirror.
Six things I could never do without
1. The internet. After all how else would you be reading my profile and getting charmed by me?
2. A sense of humor
3. My friends. As in real ones, not Facebook people who send me a request because they liked one of my comments. Weird...
4. Food and water. There is a slight chance I might die if I do not have any sustenance in my body.
5. Hygiene items like soap, shampoo, etc. Guys kind of stink in a hurry when they don't bathe, and last time I checked I was still a guy.
6. A bed, or anything to sleep on. I am getting older, the body doesn't have the internal stamina of a horse anymore.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why do hot dogs come in packages of 10 but hot dog buns come in packages of 8? If a tree falls down in the forest and hits a mime, does anybody care? What if the hokey pokey is not what it is all about? Does eating too many Twinkies really make you stupid? Is that why most people are idiots these days, because of over-consumption of yellow sponged cream cakes? You might laugh but somebody needs to seriously ponder these world altering thoughts.
On a typical Friday night I am
I am working the poles on weekends...just kidding. If I could contort and had a six pack like Magic Mike I wouldn't be single. I usually go out to eat or if the Griffins are playing I head to Van Andel to see grown men hit each other on the ice. Otherwise I cook something on the grill, and if you're lucky enough I'll make you something too. A man who can cook and likes doing so is a great thing to brag to your friends about.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I shower naked. I don't find the experience refreshing or cleansing with clothes on (plus I like being naked, so gives you something to look forward to). Legend says when I was a baby I popped a bear's head off...legend also says it was probably a teddy bear. I am an old soul trapped in a young man's body, even though I'd prefer being a person stuck in the body of a T-Rex. Making my bed every morning could be a struggle though with my stubby arms.
You should message me if
You have a super model body, make millions, can ride a narwhal...the basic demands people look for in an online match, right? Well maybe I am being a little facetious but I don't do silly deal breakers in search of the perfect person, since none exists. We are all just two flawed individuals who hopefully don't want to chuck one another into the Grand River after an outing. That river is gross, any girl who shoved me in is not getting a hug at the end of the night. And I give really good hugs so I wouldn't recommend blowing the opportunity.

But in all seriousness (okay, some seriousness) hit me up if I made you laugh, believe the only games to be playing with people include words like Scrabble or Battleship, or anything else made me seem dreamy. After all whatever gets us interacting in the "real world" should be the ultimate goal. Let's have a grand adventure or two!
