It's imperative of me to mention that I'm a father of one beautiful little girl who's an incredibly important part of my life. And as for me, well I've been told I'm quite a character and while I'm not exactly sure what that all entails I can say that I'm a bit quirky and goofy at times. I'll go on to say that I believe I'm a loyal and honest person, plus someone who tries to always be respectful of others. I'd say I'm a pretty inquisitive person by nature, because I love expanding my understanding and knowledge of the world. I possess some interesting, and sometimes frustrating, combinations of contradictory attributes such as; I'm very hasty, yet I have a tendency to try being meticulously thorough in much that I do, I'm open minded, but quite opinionated too, I consider myself a realist, even though I relish being a dreamer at times, and I enjoy being very active, however I tend to procrastinate and like to relax as well. I find myself quite passionate about activities that can get my adrenaline going such as activities which involve a bit of competition, preferably somewhat equal, but challenging competition. And when I want to relax I find taking in a movie, watching a TV show, or seeing some live entertainment (performing arts and/or sports) are some great ways to do so. Overall, I know I'm not perfect by any means, but I think I'm a pretty good guy and someone worth getting to know.
By the way, I accept that a profile typically gives only a brief look at someone which is usually because people will, so to speak, put-their-best-foot-forward in regards to their perspective of themselves. Therefore, I wanted to provide as much honest information as I could, so that for those of you who find me to be at least a bit intriguing can decipher what you will from it to get an even better idea of who I am as a person, because I'm not interested in trying to fool anyone. Anyways, I answered a lot of the questions on this site (they seem never ending) with additional informative insight since a lot of the answers are not always as cut and dry as the ones they provide, plus I figured it might be one of the best ways for someone to determine what we may or may not have in common, in-light-of chatting in person.

Music: Pretty much anything that sounds good to me. There are some particular types or genres of music that I tend to favor listening to such as Classic Rock, Rock, Alternative, Metal, Pop, Dance, and various types of Electronic (Trance, Techno, House, DnB, Industrial, Ambient, and Downtempo), but like I said I'm pretty much open to all types of music as I have a great appreciation for music in general. Btw, my all-time favorite band is a toss up between The Beatles and Pink Floyd.
Food: Italian, Mexican, Chinese, Greek and American would be the top favorites, though perhaps I could include Ukrainian too as I love my grandmother's homemade Pierogies, Holubtsi, and Borscht. Qdoba, Jimmy Johns, and Noodles & Company are probably my favorite on-the-go restaurants... btw, I might just have an unnatural and unhealthy obsession for Qdoba's burritos because they're so delicious.
Also, I've nearly completely given up drinking soda and buying junk food/candy. In general, within the last 5-6 years, I've cut back pretty significantly in eating the obvious junk foods and/or candies and I hope to continue that trend going forward. However, I do have a tendency to rely on fast-foods or quick-to-make foods (like Jack's frozen pizzas... yum) all to often, though that's mostly because of the convenience they provide.

Honorable mention: Long Hot Showers.
Also, I have my occasional deep thoughts involving human consciousness and the soul, God and the concept of faith in relation to our ability to maintain reasoned thought, contemplating and trying to understand human behavior, creation and the cosmos, including the possibility of not being alone in the universe, what science might reveal about what's beyond the known universe or what it will allow us (humankind) to explore next, and how insignificant the issues and problems of our lives are within the grand scope of everything, which helps me feel only gratitude for every single moment of my tiny little life.
Not-to-mention, if you're simply interested in being activity partners.
