My self-summary
I'm Chris. A good friend of mine found her husband on this site and convinced me to make a profile. Honestly, I never really know what to write in these 'describe yourself in a box' essays. If you want to know something specific about me, just ask.

That being said, I am an old-school gentleman who puts faith and family at the forefront of my life. I enjoy kayaking, ice skating/ roller blading, constructing custom LEGO's, mini golfing, tubing and building camp fires. I enjoy exercising when my work schedule will allow for it and I tell the most awful puns you'll ever hear!

I'm searching for a co-pilot, a partner in crime, the Bonnie to my Clyde; I'm just a Han Solo looking for my Princess Leia.

My perfect date night: I pick you up in my Kia Sorrento.
You get in. There are candles in the car.
You go, "...Is that dangerous?" and I go, "Yes-but I like danger."
We go to your favorite restaurant and have a fantastic meal.
We come outside and see my car's on fire.
You go, "Chris, your car's on fire! Aren't you upset?"
I pull out a bag of marshmallows and say, "No, I knew this was gonna happen."
And then we passionately kiss in front of my burning car.
What I’m doing with my life
I graduated from the University of Texas with a structural engineering degree. I've passed the certification exam to earn my E.I.T. license, (similar to the MCAT, but for engineers).

I am working as a structural design engineer for a firm here in Austin that specializes in the construction of large-scale steel and concrete structures. It requires long hours but hopefully I will be a fully-licensed professional engineer and can start work on my dooms day device, er, I mean...

I consider myself to be kind, chivalrous and honest; I have a strong and mind but a gentle heart. I want someone who loves to laugh but isn’t afraid to cry either. Right now, I'm looking for someone to be my best friend to ultimately become something more; I believe that the best relationships have friendship at their foundation.
I’m really good at
Making people laugh (ask me for a joke)
Playing tennis/racquetball
climbing mountains
mowing the lawn
sweeping you off your feet ;)
The first things people usually notice about me
Numerous people have told me that I look like McLovin from Superbad.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: The Lord of the Rings Trilogy, The Hobbit, Flatland, Chronicles of Narnia Series and many more.

Movies: Original Star Wars Trilogy, Lord of the Rings Trilogy, The Fifth Element, Inception, Equilibrium, and many more.

Shows: Firefly, Farscape, Castle, The Mentalist, TED Talks, NOVA, Simpsons, Family Guy, Archer and many more.

Music: 80's, The Piano Guys, Classical, Celtic, etc.

Food: yes please. (I really enjoy cooking Italian)
Six things I could never do without
1). dihydrogen monoxide
2). oxygen
3). nitrogen
4). sodium chloride
5). photosynthesis
6). family
I spend a lot of time thinking about
the future, the past, how to better myself
and how to survive the zombie apocalypse.
On a typical Friday night I am
Chilling with family, making s'mores, at the theatre or Netflix-ing.
I'm not big into "clubbing" as it went out of style with the extinction of the cro magnon man.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm super mysterious...or am I?

I usually work 60 hour weeks, ergo I have ventured into the strange world of online dating. However, if anyone ever says, "Awwww you're such a cute couple! Where did you meet?" we will need an elaborate and convincing back story about how I rescued you and all the children from a burning orphanage while riding a gryphon and playing a heavy-metal love ballad.
You should message me if
you can get down to business to defeat the Huns. Let's try and keep the mirror selfies & egregious spelling errors to a minimum.

you have your life together, don't drink to excess, intelligence is a turn on for me (if you say "I don't like to read" we probably won't get along), take good care of yourself/stay active and are always challenging yourself.
