I'm a very open-minded and adventurous person. I'm willing to try anything once. I really like artsy people, because although I've lost some of that in myself over the last few years, I still enjoy that lifestyle. I also enjoy the gothic lifestyle, I spent my entire life neck deep in it. Blame my ex-wife and father-in-law for the fact that I've had to tone it down a little to fit in with the 'working world'. I still wear my band t-shirts, from time to time.
Bad opening on alot of levels. Your opening is one of the most important parts of your page.
I spent many of my younger years being picked on, beat up, teased, harassed, (and any other such term you could fit into that category) by both my peers AND my own family, so my self esteem is damaged. I've made a lot of progress in bringing myself back from that, but I still find myself wary of people, and I still get hurt easily when teased or pushed around. Though I've learned much from my experiences. I've become a better person for my trials, and nothing anyone does can easily hurt me anymore. That which doesn't kill me only makes me a stronger better person.
This has got to go.
Two things important to me are honesty and open-mindedness. If you find that those aren't traits that you'd describe yourself as, we probably wouldn't get along. I've been played with before by people who were dishonest, and I'd rather not put myself through that again. As for open-mindedness, without that, a person wouldn't really understand who I really am or why I act the way I do.
It had a negative undertone to it. Consider getting rid of this too
I'm recently unemployed, thanks to the downfall of the economy. I worked for the new MGM Grand casino in CT for 6 months before they laid me off in October. And I haven't been able to find work since due to the horrible unemployment levels. Soon after my lay off, my ex-wife (divorce pending) and I split up. This was mutual and it is an amicable split. We don't blame each other at all. We just didnt fit right.
I'm not so sure about this one, I would get a lady to speak on this. They would be a better judge of this.
I'm really good with physical contact... Massages, rubs and such are my specialty... (This is by NO MEANS sexual.) I have found that physical contact can often do wonders to lower stress levels, ease emotional breaks, promote better health, and form tighter bonds between people.
There is no way to say this, even if what you say is true. So the best thing to do is drop it, save it for when you find someone or form a repoire with them. It screams all kinds of things that are not so good.
I'm good with electronics. I went to school for two years to learn how to repair electronics, and I've grown to be very good with computers. I give good advice as well, though I can never take my own... I speak well and I can converse about just about any topic... I'm a great listener... I try to be good at whatever i do... Not for gain, for personal fulfillment... I also find myself good at making good mixes for friends on CDs.... just a strange talent, i guess...
I also have become very good with anything surrounding the field of Music. Instruments, stereo equipment, CDs/cassettes/vinyls, singing and karaoke are all second nature to me. I'm very bizarre like that, but I'd rather spend my night at a karaoke bar or in a studio than at home sometimes. When I'm home I always have either my radio on, a CD playing, or my iTunes playing. Anything to be around music.
Everything starts with I! You have the right idea and good info, but you frame it all with 'I's' It makes it clunky, stop and go and hard to read/follow. Re-think how you present this and work around some of them 'I's'.
To list some of my favorite things:
Books: Dante's Inferno, Iliad, Odyssey, any of the Greek classics and anything Edgar Allan Poe.
Movies: anything Anime, Tim Burton, Princess Bride, Hitchhiker's Guide, Kevin Smith, Mel Brooks or any kind of old school horror films (the new stuff is too watered down). I also find myself liking the movies based on old Greek or Roman stories, like Troy, the Odyssey, or Beowulf...
Music: Techno, Metal, Industrial, Reggae, Country, Classic Rock, Nu Rock, Emo, Oldies, and OLD Punk (in other words, just about everything and anything). I'll list a few of my fave bands/singers, too:
Alice Cooper, Eric Clapton, Ozzy Osbourne, Apocalyptica, Rammstein, Samael, Depeche Mode, Mushroomhead, Gorillaz, Mindless Self Indulgence, Coal Chamber, Disturbed, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Derek Trucks, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Three Days Grace, She Wants Revenge, Mudvayne, HellYeah, Stonesour, Trace Adkins, Tracy Lawrence, Travis Tritt, Tim McGraw, etc. (I could sit here adding to this list all day if I really wanted to.)
Food: Anything that tastes good. I hate most veggies, but anything tastes good if cooked right. I love to cook. (That's right ladies, I'm a nice guy who is good at massages AND I can cook.) It's fun coming up with new and different things to try and see what everyone likes.
Once again very hard to read and quite uneeded in this style. Guys from every corner of the earth proclaim to be great cooks. you have joined the multitudes with the food section. Save it for when you find someone or be creative with it. There are umpteen men who proclaim this and they all pretty much frame it the sameway.
Depeche mode, ozzy and travis tritt. You got some wide ranges there! Just had to add that! =0)
First DateI really don't know exactly what I could say here. As gentlemanly courtesy, I let the girl choose the goings on for the first date. I bring the girl wherever she wants to go, whether it be dinner, a movie, a late night quiet walk somewhere, etc. I'm normally in the habit of picking up 100% of the tab for the night, but I recently find myself in a financial crisis, therefore the check is usually split evenly now, as much as I hate it.
This is really, really bad. Youa sk her out and then expecct her to come up with what you wanna do? Come on bro! Your a man, present yourself as one. It is screaming all kinds of things you don't want to be screaming. This has got to go!
Hundreds of messages? A read/delete is a good indication you are emailing the wrong people. With your page set up the way it is and your pictures you have narrowed the gap in who you will appeal too.
