This is similar to what I have posted on my dating profiles. I haven’t had much success on those.
I don’t know why one of my readers would be interested in dating me, but in case one of you are for whatever reason, here is a little about me:
First and foremost, I am a Christian and have been since the age of seventeen (July 2004.) I am but a poor wretched sinner who is born again, a child of The Most High King and therefore saved only by the gift of grace imparted to me through the loving, sufficient and selfless sacrificial death and victorious resurrection of my personal Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and, let me be totally clear, absolutely no merit of my own! I attend church at least once a week and usually more than that!
Even though I am a Christian I am a huge fan of The Twilight Saga. The main reason I am is that I can relate to Edward Cullen on so many levels. In fact, I’ve frequently been described as an old soul. Don’t get me wrong, I do appreciate that people my age look much younger than their counterparts of previous generations. I am heavily dependent on just about all modern technologies. And I appreciate how we are more informed than ever before. However, I vehemently resent that my honesty and my chivalry are grossly undervalued if even valued at all. Remember how Edward Cullen acted towards Bella Swan (especially in his reverence towards her)? That’s exactly how I would feel towards any young lady that would give me the honor of being hers! Being this way, though, is very detrimental in today’s dating world, unfortunately. Not too many generations ago, it was noble and admirable! On top of that, I used to look like Edward Cullen, before I gained weight, but that was also before Twilight was even a thing.
Politically, I am Moderate. I believe in safety nets for those who need them. I believe everyone deserves access to affordable healthcare. And I believe something ought to be done about the unbearably high cost of housing. Also, I believe that private schools whose rules governing off-campus behavior that are in violation of any constitutional rights ought to lose all federal funding as well as their non-profit status. However, I also believe in religious liberties. I also believe in limited government at least most of the time. And I fervently believe in gun rights. This unique combination makes me a Moderate. However, I vote with my conscience, which is ever molded and framed by The Bible and The Conviction of The Holy Ghost.
Second to being a Christian, I’m also an independent thinker, even though it landed me in constant trouble as a schoolboy. I do hold myself to a high standard and strive to be moral, ethical and a man of integrity. I have a place of my own, live by myself, I have a steady source of income, no children and my own vehicle.
Just to be clear: I am divorced but it was a clean break and totally final. My ex-wife and I went our separate ways and we owe each other nothing, financially or otherwise. Professionals familiar with the situation have put me overwhelmingly in the right. That faulty marriage taught me to have standards! More on that in a bit.
I do have some strikes against me, but all through no fault of my own. I try to play the hand I was dealt with the best of my ability and let me just say that if you don’t want me during my darkest nights, then you don’t deserve me during my brightest days! However, if you stand by me in the valleys, in my eyes you will be higher than the highest mountains and of course, be treated as such!
I can be either an introvert or an extrovert, it all depends on the type of people present. I’m not snobbish by any means but I am careful and I trust my instincts (and statistics.) Therefore, if my gut speaks good of them, I open up, fellowship and share with them. Likewise, if my gut speaks ill of them I shut down, ignore them and keep to myself.
Writing is my favorite activity (obviously) and I’ve been doing it since April 10, 2003. My favorite genre to write is love stories. I also write articles and essays on topics of which I am well versed. A good bit of my material is posted on my blog. I want to eventually make a career out of blogging and writing, but that is just a dream as of now. I like to write a short love story then have a detailed analytical discussion about it. Actually, that would be a perfect first date for me, so do check out the fiction page. I try to write like a Modern or Post Modern version of Ernest Hemingway, Edgar Allen Poe and Charles Dickens all rolled into one. When I write a story, not only am I trying to entertain and make the reader feel wonderful emotions, but I am also attempting to teach what I highly value!
In addition to writing, I repair and restore computers for fun and can breathe new life into an old computer that most others thought was ruined forever. However, I’m very unconventional in my methods of doing so. Because of my computer repair hobby and my desire to just be prepared in general; I’m definitely into EDC or everyday carry. Therefore, I always carry a flashlight and a muti-tool on me. I frequently also carry a calculator and almost always wear a watch that is synchronized monthly with the U.S. Government’s Offical Time.
One quirk of mine is that I wear slacks, britches or trousers year-round (even in this Louisiana heat.) Don’t try to change me, because I would feel extremely weird if I couldn’t wear long pants and I haven’t worn shorts in almost a decade.
Another quirk is that I am extremely punctual. Some people appreciate it and kudos to them. Others do detest it, mostly because they come from cultures that do not emphasize the importance of being on time, but I am at odds with people like that anyway for a number of other reasons.
In some ways, I am very disciplined and I carry myself with militant precision. In other ways, not so much.
God has also graced me with the ability to fix things around the house, especially anything electrical.
Listening to music is good for my heart and soul, and I like all kinds of music, so I spend many nights driving around jamming with the car stereo on full blast. My favorite musical artist as a teenager was The Dave Matthews Band. In my early adult years, I listened to Country music but it got stupid around 2013. All Country music prior to 2013 is pure gold in my book though! I started listening to bands like Fun., Neon Trees, Imagine Dragons, of Monsters and Men, etc around 2012-2013. The only three current singers I like are Ed Sheeran, George Ezra, and Meghan Trainor.
Speaking of driving, I have a very keen sense of direction and since 2001, my peers have often referred to me as “a human GPS.” I inherited this trait from my Dad and I memorized the road maps he collected. However, I’m humble enough to ask for directions when I need to.
I do like to go fishing every now and then and even though my gear is simple, I catch a lot.
There are other hobbies of mine, but you’d probably find them boring. However, they are totally wholesome, virtually legal and they keep me out of trouble. If you don’t like my hobbies, I won’t force them on you by any means, but when I am engaging in them would be a time for me to do my thing and you do your thing which is vital for any relationship!
Since I live alone, I can cook a few dishes and not to be boastful or anything, but I can fry chicken almost exactly like Colonel Sanders (he was the founder of KFC for all you younger ladies who may not know of him.) Unfortunately, I am surrounded by people who much prefer Al Copeland’s (the founder of Popeye’s) method.
Believe it or not, I have quite a funny side and actually, I am always making friends and family laugh. If I act funny with you, it means I am very comfortable with you!
People tell me I look younger than my actual age. I was born in January of 1987, so do the math to find out my current age and you decide if I look my age or not.
Want to know more, just ask. I promise to be as truthful and honest with you as possible, no matter the cost…
I am most certainly NOT interested in casual hookups, one night stands, friends with benefits, nor do I want to exchange naked pictures. I’m not looking for easy sex. Rather, I want to love and be loved! True, committed love preferably within wedlock is the prerequisite for intimacy in my book. However, I am very much aware that we are fallen beings in an equally fallen world. There may be reasons to not get legally married, but I definitely would want to still make a clear and definite marriage commitment before God, friends, and family without getting the government involved if that’s what we would need to do. Legal and binding or not, I will take our marriage commitment seriously and with extreme reverence! To me, it will be a sacred covenant between me, you and our God! I don’t want to play games nor do I appreciate people playing games with me. I am a gentleman and I promise to treat you like a lady! I do have very certain standards but if you meet or exceed them, I could fall very quickly and hard for you!
If you’re still interested there are more than enough ways to drop me a line on the Contact Me Page…
