My self-summary
Looking for a different scene than having to meet girls out at the bar. I am a fun loving guy looking to meet the right girl. I'm ready to meet someone that is looking for a meaningful relationship. I am always open to meeting new friends but I would love to find someone who is much more than that. I can be shy at first but i open up quickly. I love sports and working out. My family and friends are very important to me. I crave knowledge and have a strong desire to pursue learning new things constantly. I have a Pug named Mr. Peepers, if you're curious about the name just ask and I'll tell. I've had a great job managing retail stores for both Alltel and Verizon which I spent 7 years doing. I made a very large but easy decision to end my tenure there to take care of my younger brother as he began having seizures that have got way progressively in 2011. I wanted, to be there to help take care of him as my parents couldn't always be with him. I am very glad that I had an opportunity to be with him to spend every day with him. He passed away in 2012 as a result of his epilepsy. This has truly made me realize just how fragile life can be and given me a much different perspective and more positive outlook. Life is short and every day should be lived like it could be your last one. I don't want to have any regrets. I'm looking for a girl who loves to have fun, who is driven and who also can relax and enjoy each others company. I'm looking for a girl to share adventures with, to make laugh, to make smile, to explore new things with, to watch movies with, to cook with, to live life to the fullest, but most of all to be a best friend and share something real with.
What I’m doing with my life
Since my little brother passed away I've been working on my own business focusing on marketing as well as web design and search engine optimization for local business's. This is just the start, I have some others involved and have much bigger plans for the future. I also coach high school football.
I’m really good at
Anything physical, athletic or competitive. . Sports in general and I love to play them. I played both football and rugby in college at Western Michigan University. I am always eager and willing to play about any sport. I decided that I wanted to give boxing a shot and with about 2 weeks of training ended up making it to the state finals in the Michigan Golden Gloves event though I did lose in the championship fight (though that 1 loss was to someone who went on to get the silver in the most recent summer olympic's, ask if you want to know more), so I guess I'm okay with that.
The first things people usually notice about me
Definitely my size, and usually my sparkling blue eyes. That's right, I did say sparkling.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Six things I could never do without
My phone, my tablet, my dog, my family, my friends and the gym.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Everything, my mind is constantly running. I have quite an overactive brain and am always either analyzing or pondering for the most part. I am always eager to learn new things and have a very strong thirst for knowledge.
On a typical Friday night I am
Usually hanging out with my friends or family somewhere. I would much rather be in an environment where I can actually have a conversation with someone or just simply relax and do something like watch a movie. I'm not a huge fan of going out to a bar though I do occasionally.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
There are definitely some very private about me, not sure I'm willing to write them for anyone to see but if you email me I'll probably willing to tell or trade some stories.
You should message me if
If you would like to know anything about me or just want to get to know someone new. I love to meet new people. If you have read my profile and are intrigued to know more or share some interests. There is so much more to me than is displayed on here. If you are looking for something more than just a casual relationship. Get a hold of me jglanz82 gmail if you want to chat.
