Everything happens for a reason. This is a motto I have lived my life by, and so I find myself turning to JDate and the online dating world, there must be a reason. Are you the reason? If a picture is truly worth 1,000 words as the saying goes, then I better keep this brief or I am going to run out of characters and may bore you. I have always believed that if you can make a woman laugh and smile as often as possible then you have captured a piece of her heart. I have the unique capability of doing both. I am a hard working, independent man who is looking to find a woman who will challenge me to be better every day. I take pride in the fact that at 27 I bought my own home, and have been at an amazing job full of different daily experiences for the past 7 years. My weekends are often busy, spending time with close friends and family or sometimes just around the house. I have two adorable nieces who I am very close with and my family and friends mean everything to me. I decided to give the online dating thing a try because I know many people have had success with it, although I will admit I am a bit skeptical. I enjoy all different types of music, and food, as well as the Yankees and the Steelers. I have to leave some of this a mystery, but I will leave you with this, I am looking for the extraordinary among the ordinary, are you her?.
