My self-summary
In a nutshell I'm a generally cheerful, morally sound guy with a bit of a rebellious streak and a few additional quirks. You can always count on me for a laugh or an ear to listen, and i'm as loyal as a puppy dog minus the paper training....though I can't make promises about not digging up your back yard.... You can also count on me to be pretty blunt/honest with things.....

Edit (July 2016) - A couple of other things that came to mind below after looking around on this site- full disclaimer-...

INFJ personality type- I'm somewhat skeptical of these types of tests, but I'm also curious as I think being able to understand ourselves helps us grow and address our strengths and weaknesses. I honestly think that the INFJ hits the nail on the head with me. So if you're into this sort of thing, knowing the above probably helps.

I'm open to dating a woman with kids and if we really hit it off I'm up for potentially having one or two myself down the road, just don't expect it right away. However, if one of your goals is to have a giant family I'm not the guy for you. If you're dead set on not having kids I'm totally fine with that though; as there are plenty of kids that don't have an active parent and i'd like to get into volunteering at some point anyway in that regard. I have my niece and a nephew that I treat like my own (well, better, since I'll be able to wind em up and then give them back haha)- they mean the world to me. If I had a heart, it definitely would have been melted the other day spending time with my niece.

If you're extremely religious we probably won't get along. Don't get me wrong, Religion has and does some amazing things for some people and if you're one of them (and there are many) that's awesome, but on a personal level, while I loosely identify as a christian and have some similar values and beliefs, I'm not a big fan of how most christian churches have handled many recent issues. I probably have just as strong as morals (if not stronger), I just don't feel that going to a place of worship inherently makes one better than someone else. What good is church on Sunday if you're a jerk the rest of the week right ? That said, I'm pretty open minded, so don't think that because I'm loosely a christian that I'm opposed to dating other faiths or that I hate Christians. Even though I'm a goofball in many respects i'm totally open minded and up for intellectual conversation.

I'm taking a very open minded approach to online dating- I continue to pop on here off and on, and one of my best friends met her husband on one of these sites. That said, I've been single for a while by choice and haven't invested much time or effort into dating in awhile other than occasionally popping online or a couple of dates here and there. I'm not on some crazy quest for the one, though it'd be amazing to find someone that where there's that almost-corny-to-say-spark/butterflies with. That said, if all this site brings is another coffee date or two with some laughs, I'll chalk it up as a success. I'm happy with my life either way, so if anything I've said here catches your eye and you think I can be the pinky to your brain (or vice versa) , then we should try to take over the world!
What I’m doing with my life
I've got a career which keeps me busy, but which I'm thinking about changing in the next year or two. I'm embedded in corporate america, and while that pays the bills and gives me a decent quality of life, long term I need to focus on doing something with a focus on making me happier-and I really enjoy helping people. I'm a big believer that we should always be trying to improve- if you're a fan of the Descendents- think of this is always going for ALL.

That said, besides working, and helping out friends and family, in my spare time I'm either having an adventure of some sort (I rode my motorcycle to Alaska in 2015) or plotting my next adventure ( I need to go back to Alaska, and see the Grand Canyon, and south America, and Australia, and Europe, and I hear Africa can be cool...well you get the idea. The sky's the limit with me in that regard. Life is too short, and I refuse to wake up one day in my 50's or 60s and wonder what the hell I did with my life.
I’m really good at
being there for the people that I care about-I have some awesome people in my life, and I'm always open for more (hint hint)
The first things people usually notice about me
Some sort of combination of the silly grin that's usually adorning my face and my generally cheerful (sometimes annoyingly so..yes I can be THAT person at times) demeanor.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I definitely enjoy a good book, but I haven't read one in a while-maybe you have suggestions ? (or we can go to king books downtown and maybe grab a coney at lafayette ? )

As for movies and TV-I don't watch/see much of either, but I'm pretty adaptable though my tendencies would lean toward comedies or history/documentaries of some sort- I love to laugh and I love to learn

Music is a big part of who I am though-I'm a big supporter of the local music scene and love going to concerts, big or small (though nothing beats an intimate show at a small venue). I've got an appreciation for all types of music, especially if someone really put their heart and soul into it. However that being said, I'm a punk rocker at heart and love all forms of that genre-everything from bands like minor threat and the descendents, to bands like Less than Jake.

Food-I'm a total picky eater but I love pizza and eat....probably too much of it-though I refuse to accept that eating too much pizza is even possible :-P
Six things I could never do without
In no particular order:My close friends and family (pretty much one and the same and the most important "thing" I could list by far) , pizza, , Punk Rock in general, freedom ("murica f**K yeah" ) was that 6 ? does it matter? .
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Daydreaming about my next adventure, and working to make it a reality
On a typical Friday night I am
50/50 shot I'm either rocking out with friends at a concert, or staying in preparing for weekend shenanigans/road trips, which sometimes start on friday (wednesday is the new saturday- isn't that what all the kids these days say?)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I used to rock a comb-over straight out of the 80s-but I rocked it well into the 90s and early 2000s...oh well, my dad had a perm at one time.. so bad hair choices run in the family.. don't judge! ;-)
You should message me if
You're looking for a good guy ? you want to share some laughs? you know a really good pizza place? you want to talk music? you want to tee-pee my house (do kids these days even do that anymore?- edit- apparently they do as my neighbor got it a couple weeks ago-it was as awesome as it sounds and I had to do a double take) or some combination thereof or something I left out? Seriously though, you should message me, my mom picks my clothes out every morning and says I'm the most handsome guy she knows.. haha Ok, that last two I'm totally joking about, but if you like what you read you should totally message me or make some sort of not so subtle hint you're interested so I can message you. Definitely message me if you know a really good pizza place
The two of us
