I'm not the smoothest person on earth, and I don't know how to play "the game," especially online, but what I can offer is someone who is honest, loyal, and genuine (which are traits that are very underrated in today's world. I'm also passionate about everything (especially teaching, learning new things, and listening to what people have to say).
Also, I dislike very few people because...well...frankly, it takes too much energy to hate someone, and I don't that kind of energy to waste, so why do it?? I try to see the good in people. I'm also very forgiving and believe in redemption.
For entertainment, I love watching sports, writing, going to parks, discovering new restaurants, music, reading, going to the occasional play, and much more. I'm a well-rounded guy.
I'm looking for someone who will invest in me and get to know me on a deeper level, just as I would do for them. Someone honest, encouraging, loyal, and someone who COMMUNICATES!! I can't stress that one enough! I'd also like someone with some amount of intelligence. You don't have to be a Rhodes Scholar or anything, but 2+2 does not equal 5, and I'd really rather you not think it does. Also, "soooooo....what do you want to talk about?" should not be the staple of a conversation. That's middle school stuff. I'm a grown man. With that being said, I don't need someone who is exactly like me. I don't want to date me, I'm with me all the time. Differences can definitely be embraced. I care more about personality than looks, I just ask that you shower. Regularly. Please.
I'm an ISFJ if that means anything to you.
Lastly, if you got this far, thank you for reading! Feel free to send me a message if you'd like to have some genuine conversation. I'd love to hear from you!
Also, I'm blogging again, so that's exciting! Check it out if you'd like: lifeswhatumakeit3.wordpress.com
Music: Anything lyrical. Lyrics are extremely important to me, which makes my taste in music extremely diverse. Some of my favorites are: Thousand Foot Krutch, Red, 90's music, Jon McLaughlin, Mat Kearney, Lifehouse, Brian McKnight, Eminem, John Mayer, Dave Barnes, Sara Bareilles, Ingrid Michaelson, older Papa Roach, Linkin Park (especially their first two cds), Breaking Benjamin, Montgomery Gentry, Carrie Underwood (the old stuff). I love when music can take you on a journey.
Food: Chick-Fil-A, Chipotle, Riverside Cafe, Culver's, Whataburger
Books: Mainly literature for my classes, but I also like biographies and memoirs.
