The one thing I am passionate about...
I am passionate about being the best person I can be in my relationships with others, be it a better son, a better brother, a better friend, a better boyfriend, a better husband, a better parent... I am also passionate about taking personal responsibility for my actions and striving to leave a positive impact on the world and those I meet."Life isn't about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself."
I typically spend my leisure time
I am a geek by profession but a few years back I decided to rebuild an old car, it has been lots of fun and very rewarding. I'm attempting to learn a musical instrument but that's going pretty slow. I have also recently taken more interest in history, both Texas history and personal/family history. Last but not least, I've been enjoying some short trips here in the great state of Texas.
The most influential person in my life has been
I am looking for someone who is fit, someone that I am attracted to both body and soul... we must have intellectual (mind), emotional (heart), and sexual (body) chemistry. A woman who's confidence and intelligence mesh with independence and a grounded, laid-back attitude. She has good values and beliefs, is happy, financially responsible, honest, healthy, and lovable. Friends and family are important and she herself is a great friend. And then of course, she is funny with a wonderful sense of humor, and has a great smile. I'm hoping that whomever I meet wants someone they can build a future with, a great friend, a partner for life.
The first thing people notice about me
I can be a bit quiet but warm up to people pretty quickly, I have an easy-going nature, a quirky/goofy wit, and a great sense of humor (I love to laugh). Or maybe it's my nose...
The last book I read and enjoyed
"The Essentials of Interaction Design"... sounds like a page-turner doesn't it?
The three things which I am most thankful for
- America and those that protect her
- Family and Friends
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I am a culinary expert, I know good food! So when I say "Hot Pockets are awesome!" you can trust my taste in food... ;-P
Friends Describe me as
Funny, Generous, Physically Fit, Romantic
A little more about me
I have a dry wit and a quirky, dorky sense of humor. Some of my type of humor: The Soup, Scrubs, The Office, Caddyshack, The Princess Bride, Monty Python, The Wedding Crashers, Jim Gaffigan (Hot Pockets), and some of Dave Chappelle. And laughter is a significant part of what I believe helps make for a long term relationship. Laughter, open and honest communication, and friendship are the basic glue for that long life of love: if you can find humor often, talk through the rough times, and enjoy each other's company then you have a fighting chance.
