My self-summary
Before I get into the "me" stuff, I'm going to go a bit outside the box. If anything in my profile grabs your attention, please take the initiative and send me message.

A bit of basic info on me... 35, never married, no kids but possibly in the future. The closest thing to kids that I have are my 3 beagles that are loud and annoying that I love none the less, and my 3 nephews who I only see once or twice a year because they live 1100 miles away.

Most of my friends would describe me as laid back, calculating, thoughtful, caring, klutzy, loyal, trustworthy, and very protective of people close to me. I'm an old soul trapped in a young man's body.

The whole going out to a bar to try and meet someone thing got really old a while back. I'm trying to find that one "Quality" person for me. Meeting new people isn't that difficult, it's trying to meet someone whom you have that instant spark, chemistry and connection with that is pretty much impossible.

***Update 10/27/15***
Since this may be a potential deal breaker, I'm going to be pretty straight forward. Yes, I am a cigarette smoker. I still claim to be one because I have only been smoke-free since 10/23, trying to quit cold turkey. Definitely one of the most difficult things I have tried to this date.
What I’m doing with my life
I wouldn't say it's what I'm doing with my life that defines me, it's what I've already done that makes me who I am today. I work a pretty rough schedule for meeting new people, 3pm-12am Monday through Friday with weekends off. I never thought I would be where I am for a career (definitely not what I went to college for), but I love what I do. I work as the Service Advisor/Estimator for a very large trucking company, despite having a degree in PR.
I’m really good at
I'm really good at making people smile and laugh... Usually the laughter comes from my misfortunes, ie. I'm so tall that those low hanging lamps over your table at a restaurant usually find a way of bashing me in the head... Always good for a laugh at my expense.

I'm also a hell of a good cook, no recipes here, all from scratch. Mexican, Italian, and BBQing are my specialties.
The first things people usually notice about me
The first 2 things that people notice about me are my height, at 6'4", I'm kind of hard to miss, I usually stand out in a crowd (yes, pun intended). And second are my blue eyes. I'm one of the odd balls out there that was graced with dark hair and extremely light eyes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books- It's kind of hard to say, if it doesn't jump out and grab me within the first one or two chapters, I usually set it aside. I have however read everything written by Terry Goodkind, George R.R. Martin, Terry Brooks, and most of James Rollins and Loius L'Amour.

Movies- I'm kind of a movie nut, I will watch anything at least once, and I'll watch it a second time if it didn't put me to sleep the first time. My favorites though would be Super Troopers, Talladega Nights, Real Steel, all of the Indiana Jones movies, Day After Tomorrow, and a whole lot more.

TV Shows- Again, I'm an odd ball. I can't justify paying for TV, so I have an antenna, netflix, and HULU. If I can't find something to watch between the 3 of them, it's probably not worth watching. My favorite shows are Bones, House, Fringe, Supernatural, How I Met Your Mother, Big Bang Theory, Simpsons, and Family Guy.

Music- I listen to everything except opera and rap. My favorites right now are Chevelle, Sick Puppies, Stone Sour, Nonpoint, Shinedown, Nickelback, Three Days Grace, Breaking Benjamin, and Godsmack just to name a few.

Food- I have to be a picky eater because I developed an allergy to peanut products in my mid-20s. This typically means no chinese. I'm a huge fan of mexican and italian, and really prefer to do the cooking myself. I may not be able to follow a recipe worth a damn, but I know how spices work, and exactly what combinations can give a dish that well need blast of flavor to leave your mouth craving more.
The six things I could never do without
1. Family
2. Friends
3. Music
4. My dogs
5. Intelligent people/conversations
6. My motorcycle and some open road
I spend a lot of time thinking about
-What life is going to throw at me next.
-When and where I get to take my next trip to.
-The meaning of life, you know all those simple mind blowing things that we take for granted on a daily basis.
-Why OkCupid thinks all of my matches live so far from me...
On a typical Friday night I am
At work until 12am, and then off to wherever my friends are, or at home with my dogs.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
A very nice note on the point of me being a klutz.... I just recently accidentally stabbed myself in the face with a pair of needle nose pliers while I was at work.... I know, it could only happen to me. With all of the sharp tools that I have in my toolbox, it was one of the non-sharp ones that almost tore my face off, lol.
You should message me if
Seeing as how this isn't my first rodeo with online dating, one thing that is a definite must have is a decent set of communication skills. If my somewhat long-winded profile hasn't bored you to tears, and if you're not scared of taking a chance on an actual "nice guy". I was raised to treat women with respect, and if you are willing to provide the same level of respect in return, then I would love to hear from you.
