Date men and women from Alabama, United States. I am generally an easy going, fun loving guy... Ok, now that the clich? has been said, I guess I have to explain it.
I am not one to worry about many things and I take life as it comes. This doesn't mean that I don't get stressed out from time to time, because, like most people, I do from time to time. The difference is that I just deal with whatever comes my way and once dealt with, they're no longer stressful. I like to take the time to enjoy what life has given me.
I find enjoyment in my friends and making other people happy. This means that as long as I am with friends, I can be happy doing pretty much anything.
As far as things I like to do, I like lots of varied outdoor activities, but some of my favorite are camping, rafting, off-roading and pretty much anything on the water. I also enjoy going out to the bar with friends and random road-trips. Other interests include tinkering with computers and automobile engines.
I am also a very logical person, almost to a fault. I use logic to determine why things happen and how things work. Yes, I was the 6 year old who got in trouble for taking about the VCR to figure out how it worked. I consider myself somewhat of a handy man and don't like to throw things away that can be fixed with $5 and 15 minutes worth of time. Being logical, I am not very prone to "drama" and am not looking for someone who is "dramatic". A good debate is fine and often enjoyed, but if the old "well, if you loved me...." is employed, I'll just throw my hands up and be done. That being said, "intelligent" conversation is definitely a plus in my book, even if it's about a topic the only one side know anything about. I enjoy learning new things and I hope the other does as well.
I enjoy cooking, but only when cooking for someone else. I can't seem to bring myself to cook a nice meal for just me, seems kind of wasteful.
I am employed by a major R&D company where I write embedded applications and maintain a few servers.
I am not much of a casual dater. I don't believe in having lots of different relationships. I think the longer lasting ones are much more gratifying.
I would have to say that I live mostly by the Golden Rule in that you should cause no harm to the people around you.
Music is something that helps me get through all aspects of life. There is always something playing morning, noon and night. I enjoy most types of music including rock, metal, alternative, classical, jazz, big-band, electronic/rave/techno, some r&b and hip-hop and even some country. I am not a big fan of pop music. This leads to another hobby: car-stereo tinkering.
I guess that's enough about me. The woman that I think would be perfect for me would have to be, at least a little, tom-boyish. I say that mostly for the purpose of being able to do things outdoors with her. If she knows how to turn a wrench, 10 cool points, but not required. She would also have to be able to put up with the highly sarcastic teasing that occurs between myself and my friends. Education is also a plus for being able to hold an intelligent conversation or debate.
Meet people from Alabama, United States. Im new in town and finally ready to stay in one spot. I work really hard so its difficult to meet people. I would like to get to know someone first, and if nothing else go out and see some sites. I keep in good shape, work out almost everyday and am looking for a woman to inspire me to be even better,
Date someone special from Alabama, United States. I am a subtle person and im looking for a woman who is god fearing and submissive. also a go getter and a money maker. She cant be a bitter woman. She has to be forgiving like me. All about her mans happiness. like me.
Meet a soulmate from Alabama, United States. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends and I am usually the one doing or saying something crazy trying to get a laugh out of them. I enjoy the outdoors and love playing sports. I like to go out and spend a night on the town but i am also just has happy having a nice relaxing evening kicked back at home.
Date men and women from Alabama, United States. I'm making a conscious effort to meet some interesting new people with similar interests.
I love the English language and world history, I go see midnight showings for movies I want to see, I love music of all kinds, and I can't get enough of pop-culture.
I have an undeniable wit, and will often match you tit-for-tat in intellegent conversation, but often make jokes at inappropriate times. I know what I'm looking for in a match, but it's gotten ludicrously difficult to find that special someone in the social circles in which I now inhabit. I just want to find a girl that's smart, sweet, and knows where she's headed in life. If you're a nerd, that's a definite plus. Even if you snort when you laugh, or are likewise SOCIALLY AWKWARD that's okay with me, as long as you are genuine.
The only games I play are the ones that require a controller. Hit me up with a message if you're the open-minded type.
Meet single man from Alabama, United States. Some people say its not real, but I have not yet given up on finding fairy tale love. Have you ever laid your eyes upon a stranger and suddenly had a sensation of complete awe? Your heart starts racing and you feel very nervous... you are excited and scared all at the same time. That is the moment you know you have met your soul mate. You just can't describe it, but you suddenly know, without a doubt that you were meant to be with this stranger. This is the object of my quest. I am a man who is full of love searching for the special woman to share that love with. Are you that person?
What am I looking for? Let me just describe you. You enjoy cooking, keep a decently clean house, successful career woman, aspiring Mother of the year (even if you don't have kids), and glamorous in public. You are comfortable in an evening gown and can make sweats and a worn t-shirt look sexy. You love being outdoors and active. You can make me smile even after a bad day and you know exactly how to get me exited about going out when all I want to do is stay in. Most importantly, you are my best friend. Your efforts do not go unappreciated because I give back as much or more than I get. :)
Who am I? This is the hardest part... how do you describe yourself without sounding cocky or pretentious? What the hell... here it goes, cocky sounding or not, its truth. I am honest, kind, caring and thoughtful. I am very in tune to the needs of my loved one. I am very affectionate and loving. I love to cook and try new foods. I enjoy outdoor activities especially mountain biking... anything in nature away from the hustle of every day life is appealing to me. I also enjoy a good movie or socializing with good friends. I am a hard working and I'm always looking to better myself, advance my career, grow and learn new things. Sometimes, though, I get stuck in a rut and really need a kick in the pants to get me back to myself. Financially, I am very conservative. I do not believe in being wasteful. If I were to spend frivolously, it would be on something that would create lasting memories, like a great vacation or something similar. Physically, I'm not as fit as I would like to be, but I'm no slob either, probably a little more fit than your average guy. Right now I'm just stuck in one of those ruts... LOL
I have a two year old son and he means everything to me. Right now, he is the light at the end of my tunnel. Finding someone who understands that raising a child from another marriage has its challenges, and is ready to take it head on, is very important to me. Also, I would like the possibility of having more children, one day.
Still here? Great! Let's meet for a drink and see what happens ;-)
When you contact me, tell me what you are passionate about.
Date a man from United States. So...Who are you looking for? A 'roided-out meathead with barbwire tattoos or tribal art - possibly wearing an Affliction T-shirt 2 sizes too small? If so, then keep clicking. As you can tell from my pics, I am not that dude. However, if you want to hang out with a guy that has his sh!t together and maintains clear direction in life - then maybe you should stop here.
A little more about me (if you've made it this far)...I have a great job that takes me all over the country and has provided experiences that you can not find in Mobile, AL. However, the down-side is that life on the road can make it a little difficult to meet people in the traditional ways and the Mobile bar scene has run it's course...to say the least! (Hence the dating website you and I are both on rigtht now...it is what it is..)
I consider myself to be out-going - never met a stranger, and love to make people laugh (or try anyways)! I am very career-focused; but, I know when to turn it off and have a good time. Point being...I work hard and play harder!
As far as what I am looking for in a woman...someone who is motivated, knows what she wants out of life and is not afraid to open up. We may not see eye to eye on everything, but we absolutely have to be able to laugh together...so sense of humor is a must!!
Meet people from United States. rant time has ended :)
Well, Colorado Springs, it has been fun, but I'm out of here in about six weeks, so unless you're just looking for witty conversation or a tour guide... time to focus in on Huntsville.
Still undecided between buying or renting down there... Thoughts?
...too my "who am I"... if it's offensive, well, i guess we have saved each other some time :)
I am sarcastic, pessimistic, but highly entertaining. My friends tend to describe me as the nicest self-centered generous selfish jerk (match.com won't allow the actual word) they know. As they have put it, "when we try to find women to set you up with we usually go with the one that says $%^^ off to us from the start... she's perfect for you". (obviously that works, since i'm on here)
I tend to be very distant and unapproachable to people I do not know. Apparently, my natural expression (generally blank) is intimidating. I disagree. I'm honestly a very nice person, just guarded, and very blunt when stupidity is around. I have no problem speaking my mind. It seems honesty is only an endearing trait if it's something the other person wants to hear :) oh well. In a nutshell, that's me.
if you're still reading... I'm seriously torn between the rent/buy world for Huntsville and all of the crime reports are quite sporadic (same with property values).. 300k home next to the 50k next to 1.5M? hrmmm (alright, exaggerating, but still)
Korean restaurants in Huntsville that anyone recommends? (random thought of the day)
Excited to experience a new city, but sad to be leaving this one :)
Date a soulmate from United States. I'm Jonathan, Jonny to friends.
I'm a passionate, witty, loyal guy with a dry sense of humor who is looking for his partner in crime.
I believe in honesty and I don't do drama.
I love to fish, whitewater raft, hike, tailgate, enjoy fine cigars (I don't smoke cigarettes), and explore rural roads.
My family and friends come first in my life, and I am also a huge dog lover.
I am very open minded, and I enjoy learning about other cultures. I've been on backpacking trips through Europe twice, and I'd love to do more traveling.
My biggest strength is probably the ability to really listen to people. I make friends easily because I think my genuineness comes through to people.
One of my most profound flaws is over-analyzing things. I want to be better at "living in the moment." I'm hoping the right girl can help me achieve that.
I grew up in Atlanta, went up to metro D.C. for college, and I'm now leading a slightly slower-pace lifestyle in Pike Road. It took a while, but I've carved out a pretty decent niche for myself in Montgomery with some great friends.
I'm an open book, so feel free to ask any questions.
Nosce Te Ipsum ("Know thyself").

Meet someone special from United States. What up. Guess I've been reading profiles on here for a couple/few months and am realizing I'm pretty generic when writing my profile. And who wants that. We're on here looking for the extraordinary. So here goes, imma rewrite it and go way overboard on the to much info tip. But it's the truth so you can know where I stand in your future plans.
Let me start by speaking of my career. I haven't one. A high percentage of profiles speak of meeting a career oriented man. I am a family oriented man. I value life above all and realize how short it is. That all being said, I do possess a few skills sets that can pay the bills. I'm an avid gardener, capable of growing the very best of everything from tomatoes to okra and occasionally other things in between with a much higher profit margin. In the last few years I've been playing alot of poker to help supplement cash flow n it's kept me out of the other markets I profit in for a while. This tends to b a pattern in my life, work up some money over a season n live it away for awhile then repeat. Im good with this though. I don't have a lot of stuff/junk but I'm happy n positive about my days n life n general. I value not what can b bought. I'm a little out of the box, I won't argue that, but I am respectful of all my blessings and am looking for a variable I cannot live without. So step outta your box of comfort and see if a friendship can spark butterflies. One evening out n we'll know where to stand n who doesn't want to know more n life.
B wrong a lot but try my best
Love you unconditionally until it is no longer rational
Place you above me in every choice I make(but I will expect the same from you, this will be our bond)
Value everything above money
rub your back as much as you rub mine(n u best be puttin some time in)
forget your birthDay n our anniversary as much as I remember them(I'm not to big on dates, if it weren't for holidays or garden schedules i wouldn't know what month it was)
grow a garden for us to grow in together every year til I'm no longer physically able except for years we are traveling through the summer(being in a garden is the most therapeutic things for my soul)
Lie or cheat ever ever
Smoke(I'm far more likely to smoke herb than cigarettes)the legality of things affects me not. My conscience guides me not mans law
Let the spark die
Do anything solely because it is what is socially accepted
Get a Job with no selfgratification because of the money, I work to live not live to work(I feel good and bad about myself from the things I say and do not what's in my pocket) that being said you should deduce that I'm broke and happy somehow. And if that hard to grasp you ain't we. That being said I am not n will never b n debt. I own my name n it's entirety
Spend money we don't have on something we don't need
Ever use the word divorce in a fight(I feel a relationship can never be the same once this is viewed as an option)
Hit you ever(bonus!!!)
Sorry bout this rambling but I felt you'd b better off if I cut to the chase n it might save some time.
Date men and women from United States. I hate this part - let me condense everything interesting about myself and what I'm looking for into several sentences that have to catch the attention of the "right" girl. That sounds difficultвЂ¦but I guess everyone is thinking the same thing when they are writing this.
Here are a few specific things about me:
- I adore my family, especially my nephews and niece - I like hanging out with them because I get to play with toys again and no one looks at me funny.
- I have always thought that dogs understand way more than they let on.
- I travel a lot, professionally and personally - I love road trips, the opportunity to get lost and find something new has always intrigued me.
- I have a special affection for water - I grew up around it and anything from a simple pool to a gorgeous lake or river can capture my attention for any length of time.
- I am financially independent, I have a career, not just a job and I worked hard for it.
- I enjoy the little things - obviously that includes twinkies.
- I'm a Southern boy - I hold doors, say "Ma'am", and family and tradition are important to me.
- I am Blessed - and saved by His grace.
I don't know if I can describe what I'm looking for, but I'm confident that I'll know it when I see it.
