A few points I'd like to make: 1. I'm not a hook-up guy--I'm looking for a relationship--I fall in love through long conversation and I love a woman from the inside out, not from the crotch up, like so many men (and women) do with the opposite sex. 2. I'm a full time student right now so my income is a little sparse, but I've handled my finances very well and my expenses are so low right now, I'm doing pretty well. I graduate in May.
3. When it comes to dating, I'm pretty shy. I might look at your profile and not say anything, hoping to come up with the right thing to say rather than open my mouth and say something that will push you away. If I don't say anything it might just mean you are someone I am very interested in and don't want to mess it up--just say hi.
That being said, let me describe myself in 1966 characters or less. According to Facebook, I'm 86% datable and "highly sought after", I'm "enchanting" (forget which survey told me that), if I were a rock band, I'd be the Eagles, That's what Facebook says.
If I had to describe myself I'd say I'm genuine, silly, sincere, shy, vulnerable, open and honest. My life is quiet, punctuated by moments of terror. People who know me would call me very friendly, silly, engaging, thoughtful, and people who don't know me would say,”No who?” I've been called eccentric--that's what others tell me, but frankly I think I'm normal and you're all nuts.
I wanted to be an artist, then Batman, a writer, auto designer, aircraft designer, then an Air Force pilot, a draftsman, then a draftswoman (just kidding), an electronics wizard, and during this time I found I could fight my sedentary habits by bicycling all over the place, so at 16 I sneaked away for a day and pedaled my rusted, 40 pound 5-speed 113 miles to Owensboro, KY and back. I got a bit lost because I wrote my directions in Morse code. Mom is still upset about me doing that.
I joined the Air Force, as an Intelligence Analyst. I started competing in cycling and running and found I had talent in that. I wrote poetry. I completed my first full Ironman in August 2013, something I'd wanted to do for 23 years but never thought possible. I'm working towards a degree in English (I'm an experienced English speaker and pronouns excite me). I like so many different things that no matter which major I chose, I'll be disappointed. My overactive brain can be a problem for concentrating when I'm SQUIRREL!!! Oh...sorry, thought I saw a squirrel.
That's the best I've got for now. It's more entertaining if you play "Theme From A Summer Place" while you read it. My friend twisted my arm to get me to come on here. Up until now, I've just been recklessly running down the street with a candy bar in my hand, hoping to bump into a nice lady carrying a jar of peanut butter. I'm out of ideas.
