Hey there!I'm pretty open to anything. I'm one of those people who's happy inside or outside. I like photography, writing, cooking, and I'm a huge movie buff. My goals include moving to LA and working in the film industry. That's kind of a work in progress right now, but I'll get there ;)Oh and meetville auto-listed me as an Aries. This is because my birthday is on the cusp, last day of Aries some places, first day of Taurus others, and meetville chose for me, and they chose wrong lol. Claiming both identities might be why I'm a lil nutty ;) I do have a fair amount of Aries traits, but my family and those who I feel know me best say I more have the Taurus qualities :-\ Guess you'll have to judge for yourself ;)... Hmm, tough to write about yourself on paper (internet paper?)Not sure what I'm looking for exactly. Not really looking for "the one," but I won't freak out if I find him. If we hit it off, I might be open to something serious.I generally enjoy low-key things. I like going out to the clubs and such every once in a while, but generally, I'm more happy being chill and relaxed. Let's go bowling, or kayaking, or play laser tag, maybe even karaoke, or just head somewhere for burgers and beer, shoot pool. I'm also happy to stay at home and cook (and cooking for two is more fun, yes?) and have wine, so if that sounds like you, hit me up :)I'm mostly into easy guys. I don't mean sexually, I mean the kind who are easy to get along with. Calm and chill, without a lot of drama or misunderstandings about small dumb things. Someone who's not high-maintenance. I'd like a guy who has a car, job, and place. Not because I'm looking to be taken care of, because I'm not. I just want a guy who is self-sufficient and doesn't need me to take care of him. I like guys who are genuine and sincere and laidback. Say what you mean and mean what you say, right? I like a guy who can have conversations on a wide array of topics. Reading for pleasure and awareness (though not obsessive) of the news are attractive to me. Reading is sexy.For me, the things that really count and go a long way: a sense of humor, genuine smile, good manners, being well-spoken (I'm a bit of a grammar Nazi), loyalty, honesty, and being the kind of guy who follows through on what he says. Being a man of your word is important to me, and that's how I am. I'm not into games or having to chase someone for their attention. I absolutely loathe flakes. I don't believe in canceling plans, so if you cancel on me, a life/job/car better be in danger, or you'll be in the doghouse. Just a big pet peeve of mine.If you message me, please have more to say than "Hey what's up." That doesn't leave a lot of room to go. And let's not immediately jump into work talk, frankly, it's boring and predictable, and my job is listed in my profile. And please don't add me to your favorites if you're not even going to talk to me, that's just creepy :-\.. nonna that.And I never take it personal to not getting a reply. I'd rather be *** there simply isn't an interest than get half-assed replies or rude ones. You shouldn't take it personally either. We can't all be each others' types, nothing wrong with that, but rest assured, I'm not shallow to the point where I judge solely by looks; if you message me, I'll read your whole profile regardless, to see if there's anything there that makes me feel we might click. So, hopefully there's something there to tell me a bit more about you, hate the barebones profiles.Also, I'm not into playing *** the most recent *** conversation was from me to you, I consider the ball in your court to reply.And for the love of sweet Jesus in heaven please have a picture on your profile. Otherwise I'm afraid I can't reply.Anything else, just ask, I'm an open book :) Be creative. Or let me be creative. Really, there are few things I'm against, adventure is always fun.I really only have a few requirements for first dates. And the first time we meet doesn't necessarily have to be a "date," screw labels, it can be a sort of meet and greet, see if there's an interest lol. And going "Dutch" is good, takes the weirdness out a bit.1: No movies. Don't get me wrong, I love them, love going to them with a guy, but not for a little bit. I want to know someone and be comfortable in silence with them for a bit.2: No formal dinners. It's awkward. Let's do something a bit more active. But if food must be involved (which is fine, I love food), let's go somewhere casual and laid back, I'm not keen on getting all gussied up for dinner, at least not right off the bat lol. If you really want to impress me, cook for me, once we're comfortable going to each others' places ;)3: No going to my place or your place. Not for the first few dates. Just don't want to get intimate with someone before it should happen. Proximity to a bedroom isn't good until you're sure you want to go there.Basically, anything that allows for conversation. If you can work in being outside, food, and alcohol (not an alkie, but a drink or two does help break the ice), I'll be a happy guy. Oh, and that makes it sound like I'd like a picnic, but I really wouldn't, typically :-P A restaurant then a walk is good. But a casual restaurant; if I need to worry about getting cleaned up, and I can't put my elbows on the table, I'll feel out of place lol. But tell me what you'd like, and we'll go from there.
