Yes, I understand that this site makes me appear to be a little stalker-ish. I sometimes need a few attempts before actually crafting a custom-tailored, neat-o note and hitting 'send' on the first message, so yes, I will probably visit your profile more than once to try and think of something clever to send. I do actually read what you ladies write and reply accordingly and honestly. Then, of course, after I send that first one, I'll think of something WAAYYY better. If I came by, didn't write ya, and you feel like we could be great together, go ahead and send me a note.
Also, if you just think you would like to get to know me a little more, send me a note. I do not bite... If I do not reply, things just didn't seem to click. Happens to me all the time too, so keep your chin up, buckaroo!
I am an Army brat from nowhere that moved here in 1989. I have pretty much only lived in NE ATL in the 'burbs, but I am not afraid to get out once in a while. I still haven't been married, and still no kids.
I was a vegetarian for about 4 years. I gave it all up when the McRib came back. True story.
I like just about everything. I only dance if I'm drunk. I do have a "victory move" that's acceptable anytime. I buy strangers in bars drinks if they look like they're having a bad day. I am pretty sure I gave myself the dia-beet-us with all the shit I keep in my desk drawer. I'm not on my way to losing a foot or anything, I just refuse to work unless I have Ding-Dongs and Oreos close at hand.
I have a problem with efficiency: I load the dishwasher from the back to the front, I clean as I go when I cook, I recycle, I be sure to finish leftovers before making something new, and these sorts of things sometimes drive others crazy. It makes sense, dammit! Why don't you get that?
Believe it or not, I'm actually a very nice guy.
I still do side work when the opportunity presents itself and am no stranger to the barter system. I get paid in beer or food all the time, so more often than not, I come home with nothing.
1. Moving friend's shit. (multiple times!)
2. Giving long, awkward hugs.
3. Cooking without measuring anything.
5. Singing alone in my car. (damn right it's my version of the words!)
Okay, I know for a fact I suck at the last one, but I like to do it.
6. Making it seem like I know what I'm doing when I may not. Call it a gift.
I really enjoy silly movies and tend to watch the same ones whenever they are on. Some of my standards include Step Brothers, Grandma's Boy, Let's Go To Prison, Idiocracy, The Shawshank Redemption, The Big Lebowski (they don't show that one much), The House Bunny, Yes Man, and Major League (my current #1).
I listen to any kind of music. I do not choose Country, but I'm not opposed to it. I love NOFX, The Descendents, Bad Religion, Metallica, Snapcase, The Cranberries, Madonna, Lisa Loeb, The Misfits, 311, DMB, Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Slayer, and a slew of others.
I love to cook and love to eat. I really enjoy cooking for other people and have even more fun when multiple cooks are working. Not on the same dish, of course...you know the saying, unless that only applies to soup. I'm not willing to take that risk. I'll tell you now, I have a seafood allergy, but I can always find something to eat. If sushi's your favorite thing in the world, I have no problem going with ya! There's actually a place by my house that has the best and most unusal Teriyaki Chik'n. Love it!
How i'm consistently getting set up with psychopaths by my "friends". I think I need a break from crazy girls.
Whether or not dating someone who has a higher "enemy percentage" might be more fun? Maybe nothing brings people closer together more than a knock-down, drag-out brawl on a first date. If anything, our stories will certainly be more interesting than other couples'. Also, would a "post-first internet date" survey be a good idea? It could certainly help the other person out with future ones, if needed.
I don't spend a lot of time thinking about this one but it did come up recently: are there any guys' profiles that specifically state that they will ignore a girl if they have a photo of themselves shirtless in front of their bathroom mirror? I doubt it...
Also, I am trying SOOOOO very hard not to slap the shit out of people that use the term "bucket list" in any kind of seriousness. This tests my patience daily, not only on the weekends. I haven't hit anyone yet, which shows that I am a relatively decent guy, but PLEASE stop using it people!!
Also, keep in mind, I DO like actually meeting people in person, so do not feel threatened or uncomfortable if I ask. I will try and think of a casual place (or you can choose) close to you that is comfortable, decently lit and populated. We can grab a drink or snack after work or whatever to see if we click. Sound OK?
