The one thing I am passionate about...
Anything outdoors, really. Playing sports, hiking, running. Going to the gym. Whatever breaks a sweat.Also very passionate about my sports teams, but not to the point where it's annoying.I enjoy going the extra mile for people I care about. If you mean something to me, I'm going to show it.
I typically spend my leisure time
Going to sporting events. Nothing like sitting back, having a beer, and watching a game live. Walking/running with my dog. She's in much better shape than I ever will be.Cooking a good meal. I don't have the time or energy to cook a big meal every night, but when I do, it's always worth it.I almost always have a movie on, regardless of whether or not I'm paying attention to it. There's one on right now. I couldn't really tell you what's happening. Subsequently, I have developed an ability to completely ignore DVD menu music. I grew up by the beach and wish I could make it back more often. Sand in the sheets is a secret favorite of mine.
The most influential person in my life has been
A genuine love of life. Life is better with company, and there are a lot of things to do. I'd like to find someone that can walk the line between staying in and watching a movie on a Friday night and going skydiving (actually, I'd be too terrified to go skydiving, and there's no way I'd ever do it, but you get my point). Life is short. Live accordingly.I'm also a little sarcastic, so you should probably be able to roll your eyes once in awhile, too. That will help things.
The first thing people notice about me
My laugh probably. I do my best to make light of even the worst situations, so while it may even be nervous laughter, scared laughter, or awkward laughter, I'm at least still smiling.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My family, being able to spend time with my two nieces.
- My opportunities in life, giving me the chance to contribute and give back.
- My friends who will always be a part of my life
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
People see that I'm an engineer and automatically assume I'm a bit of a nerd. Well, that may be true, but I'd rather read a book than do a math problem. The world is better off without me designing an airplane, trust me.
Friends Describe me as

A little more about me
My last thought before signing up for this site was "I can't believe I'm doing this." I'm not sure if that's normal.About me:I really love to cook, but I also love having cereal for dinner once in awhile.Netflix has dealt a huge blow to my social life, possibly contributing to me typing up an online dating profile.My favorite beer is Guinness, but if presented with a socially acceptable opportunity to order a colorful drink, I WILL take it. I rarely encounter these opportunities.I have a dog, so dog haters think twice. She is very well behaved, but I suggest you hide your shoes anyway.
