My self-summary
A lot of people say that dating is a game, but I don't believe this. People's hearts and lives are not meant to be played with. So, since I refused to play the game, perhaps that's the reason why it's been difficult to meet people of quality.
Honestly though, I'm not sure what I might be doing wrong. Okay, I'm really not the type to boast about myself, but I am honestly confused about what I might be doing wrong here. You see, I work a lot of hours managing a Subway shop in Ogden, so I don't get out to meet very many people. Otherwise, I'm very organized and clean. I like to be respectful to everyone, and I'm very compassionate and understanding. I can stick up for myself and stand my ground, but I'm also willing to listen to both sides of the story and admit when I'm wrong. I'm very frugal, even though I have very expensive tastes and I am very good at budgeting my finances. When I get in a casual setting, I can get people laughing until their sides hurt. I'm very honest, to a point that if I tell even a small lie, it causes me anxiety and stress until I fix it. I love to cook, and I am good at experimenting with pastas and desserts. I am handy around the house and can fix most anything. I can usually fix my own computer hazards, and I helped my Dad and Grandpa build my parents' house. I am a very romantic type of person, and I prefer to give gifts for no apparent reason. If I know you like something and I see it for sale somewhere, I might buy it for you just because giving it to you and seeing you smile makes ME feel good. I prefer to watch sporting events in the arenas instead of on the TV. I enjoy paintballing, camping, hiking, rock climbing, working out in the gym, and many other activities. I'm healthy, strong, fit, and fairly attractive. I don't consider myself to be amazing, and I'm sure there are a lot of guys that are probably a lot better catches than I am. Though, I do consider myself somewhat of a good guy. I'm usually the "nice guy" that is constantly in the "friend zone" and doesn't know why. I'm a great guy, I'm just looking to meet a nice, attractive girl to spend time with and hopefully have a genuine connection with. I've always been told I'd be a "great guy" for someone, or that I'm the type of guy that mature girls are "really searching for, instead of the bad boys."
So, if you want to be respected, romanced, and cared about while dating a great guy, then message me quick! Thanks!
What I’m doing with my life
I'm usually working a lot of hours managing the Subway shop in Ogden. If I'm not there, I'm either at the gym, hanging with friends, or at home reading, relaxing, or writing my book.
I’m really good at
Getting distracted by shiny things.....

Ok, well, I sing, dance, write stories, act on stage, have good work ethics, can act very professional....when necessary. Of course, I try not to do all that at the same time, I'm not THAT talented. Is that enough of a list? Well, if you're wondering if I can do something, or if I've ever done something particular, just ask.
The first things people usually notice about me
At first glance, I'm usually very shy. I don't say much, especially at work, where I just talk about work. People usually have to talk to me first. However, once I get comfortable around people, I can usually get them laughing until their sides ache.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Well, with my A.D.D., my favorites would be the shiniest object nearby. Other than that?
Food: Italian, Chinese, BBQ, Home Cooked, Etc. I like foods that can blend nicely, while highlighting each flavor in it at the same time. For example, the Balsamic sauced beef and Fettucini I recently tried at the Olive Garden. It all worked nicely as an entre. Honestly, there is only a few food items I wouldn't eat. Say, Shrimp, for example, just because I'm allergic to it, really.
Music: Also, just about everything. As with many other things, the music I listen to can express a lot about the way I feel. If I'm sitting in my car with my eyes closed and death metal blaring on the stereo, it's probably best to leave me alone. However, if I'm sitting on my bed in my pajamas while listening to "When A Man Loves A Woman," it's probably time to break out the ice cream and therapy session couch.
Movies: I watch movies the same way I listen to music. It depends on my mood. However, movies with excessive blood and gore seem to just gross me out lately.
***Of course, if someone around me has a preference on the music or movie selection, I'll usually comply. I'm not even against watching "chick flicks."***

Books: I like to read books that I can actually learn something from. Fiction is not my first choice. I like reading books from Don Miguel Ruiz, Viktor E. Frankl, Etc. I recently read Psycho-cybernetics 2000 by Sommer. Lately, though, I've been reading more about setting up and running a business, since that's what I'm trying to do. I have plans to open my own business later on, when I get a few more things in line.
Six things I could never do without
1. My parents and family
2. My faith/religion
3. Food, water, air, sleep, clothing
4. Interaction with people around me
5. Hope of a good future
6. Happiness and sadness (how can you know happiness without knowing sadness?)

How many people on here don't list clothing? There'd be a lot of naked people running around, wouldn't there?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The shiny objects nearby. Otherwise, ways to have fun and improve the quality of life (mine and the people around me).
How to learn new things (lately I've been reading about radiocarbon dating, and string theory).
On a typical Friday night I am
If I'm not working or at the gym, I'd probably be at home writing my book.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I may be an open book, but that doesn't mean I'm going to go running through the streets naked!.........again...... You'll have to ask me about this one.
You should message me if
You speak English and are single.... Yeah, not really interested in helping you cheat or break up your relationship.

Hmm, let's see, message me if....
you understand what it means to be faithful....
you like romantic nice guys...
you're not looking to date the next "bad boy" next to you...
you can communicate well in a relationship...
you don't run away when things aren't perfect
(Yes, relationships aren't perfect, and I want to be with someone that'll work it out instead of running away if something isn't perfect)
The two of us
