Hey there, my name is Jared. I'm the man of your dreams. Hmm, I take that back - I don't stalk your dreams, but I am still a man.
I'd consider myself a bit of an enigma. I love all types of things. Here are a few of them:
-Real Salt Lake soccer (I am a season ticket holder)
-Photography (I do post photos on flickr...if you care to see, please feel free to ask)
-Delicious food (I love finding and trying new restaurants)
-Reading (e.g.: The Way of Kings and anything else by Brandon Sanderson, The Wheel of Time, Ender's Game/Shadow, Kingkiller Chronicles, anything with zombies.)
-All kinds of TV and movies (e.g.: Doctor Who, The Cosby Show, X-Files, Adventure Time, Death Note, Firefly, Battlestar Galactica, Star Trek TNG, anything with zombies, Japanese Anime, Shaun of the Dead, Let the Right One In, The Karate Kid, What About Bob, Kill Bill, anything by Quentin Tarantino.)
After listing the above activities and items, I have to mention that I'm pretty chill. I have my likes and hobbies, but I don't always have to be out-and-about doing things. I am OK going on the occasional outdoor excursion, but most of the time I would rather be relaxing/chilling indoors.
I believe that one should be themselves in all circumstances they are in. It bothers me when people put on a facade in front of others to try and impress. I also believe that being open and honest is imperative in a friendship and/or relationship.
I work as a systems engineer for a software company. One of the best things about my job is that I get to work from home, and I love it...but it makes it somewhat more difficult to meet people.
I will mention that I'm quite shy at first, and to be honest many times it's hard for me to even get the gumption to send somebody a message to initiate contact. I know I know, girls like guys that are confident...blah blah blah...I can assure you I am confident in who I am, and am not shy after first contact, but that doesn't mean I'm not a wuss in initiating that contact. So, basically, don't be afraid to send me a message if you feel so inclined.
One more thing: I do currently have a beard. I know some of you ladies don't like beards, so suffice to say I am willing to make sacrifices if the right woman comes along. ;)
