My self-summary
Hi, so here goes nothing. I am looking for someone special. A real, longterm relationship, with the potential of marriage and a family. I have had great relationships in the past, but nothing yet has led me to something that is forever. I have tried the bars, clubs, meet up groups, etc. but they all seem the same. Great people, but not the one for me, so that is why I am on OKC. I am looking for my best friend and potential for more.

Now that you know why i am on here, a little about me. My friends would call me funny, loyal, compassionate, genuine, trustworthy, and Intelligent, and fun. I have a big heart and like spending time with people I care about. I can be competitive, love to play sports but know that winning is not everything. You gotta have fun, right? I like to do many things and often refer to myself as a Jack of all Trades; not always the best, but will give it a shot anyways. I can easily fit into any social situation and engage in insightful conversation or talk sports with the best of them. I laugh at stupid jokes (some of them my own) and consider myself a bit goofy. I can be nerdy at times, but it's balanced with athleticism, confidence, and a can do demeanor.

I have lived in the DC area for almost eight years and I love it. I own my own place near Shirlington and cannot imagine a better to live. There is so much to do, from biking the trails, going to festivals, exploring the monuments, kayaking down the Potomac or hiking in the Shenandoahs, the DC area really does have it all.

One thing I am very proud of is that everything I have is because of hard work, desire, and dedication, and not because I was handed it on a silver platter. I believe in the golden rule and that good things come to those who live by it.

On a lighter note, I like to think of myself as a bit of a foodie and love trying new things. I enjoy going to beer festivals and wine tastings, although I will not claim to be an aficionado or snob. I seek to explore and expand my cultural understanding. I also consider myself a pretty good cook and can usually whip up something tasty in a pinch. I usually test out my creations on my coworkers and I have yet to receive a disappointing critique (and I do ask for them). I love playing sports and love playing softball probably the most although sand volleyball is a close second. :) Hiking, kayaking, bicycling, BBQing and going to the beach are all fun and as long as there is a social aspect to it, I will try anything. I recently tried skiing and would love to go some more - I am not afraid to admit, I am still working the bunny hills - (good instructor needed!)

I have done a lot in my lifetime, I have traveled the world, served in the military, acted in movies, saved lives, stopped bar fights, met celebrities, had politicians sing to me (true story), become a homeowner and now I am looking for someone to share the rest of my adventures with.

If I sound like someone you might like to meet, let me know and maybe we can meet up for a drink and talk.

My Meyers Briggs: ENFP - probably the closest (I could take the test five times and come up with five different personality types).
What I’m doing with my life
I like to stay active and find new things to do. I love getting outside, hiking, biking, kayaking, playing softball, exploring. I also enjoy playing guitar and working out. Im kind a jack of all trades when it comes to activities. I like it all.
I’m really good at
I like to think I am good at all sorts of things, it be stimulating conversation or lighthearted banter, tinkering with items to try to make them better or trying new hobbies I like to engage in different things. I recently started brewing my own beer, yum!!! The batches I have made have actually turned out really good. :) One thing I know for a fact (and I pride myself on it) I am a very good cook ;). Mexican, Indian, German, Italian I do it up.
That said, I have decided I am not a good gardener as every time I have started an herb garden (because I love cooking) the squirrels have seen to it to sabotage my efforts and eat my plants.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I am a really nice guy. (I know, I know, good guys finish last right...I'm still not gonna change who I am.)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Game of Thrones, Vikings, The Walking Dead. whatever is on Netflix, or Amazon Prime...

My musical tastes vary depending on the setting. Zach Brown Band or Jimmy Buffett, while chillin on the beach with a cold drink in my hand. Something a little harder while kicking my butt in the gym (Metallica, Avenged Sevenfold... and other bands you probably don't want to know about). Classical while reading or studying (the Mozart thing really does work). Classic Rock, arguably Led Zeppelin is probably the all-time best band ever.

I love food. You name it, ill eat it. I love the concept of a foodie road trip. So many great choices around here!
The six things I could never do without
1. Good friends and family (although I don't get to see my family as often as I like) as traveling to AZ becomes pretty expensive on the regular.
2. A gym, although I am no shredded bodybuilder or claim to be the expert in all things fitness related, I have been going to the gym almost daily for most of my adult life.
3. Outdoor activities, hiking, biking, kayaking, exploring, playing sports, and just all around trying to have fun.
4. Food, I do consider myself a bit of a foodie, and I love checking out new restaurants and then trying to copy what I ate when I get home. :)
5. Beer (I've been brewing my own beer for a couple years now and it is way better than the stuff you can buy in the store). :)
6. Coffee (might need some right now!)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why drivers from Maryland are the worst things on the road. Is it in the water? What??? If anyone can explain this phenomenon, would love to discuss. :)
On a typical Friday night I am
Now that I am older, I enjoy a good happy hour over the late night bender. I love meeting up with friends or grabbing dinner with drinks. If there is a good live band, I am totally down.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Not really private, but an interesting fact. I have been in a few movies with some big name actors. Maybe you can ask me about them over drinks. :)
You should message me if
You are interested in a down to earth guy, who knows how to have fun, is intelligent and athletic, and is not a self-centered cocky jerk.
