In His Own Words

About Him

There is never a reason for an awkward silence with me. Whether we're talking about where we want to try for dinner, whether or not "Radar Love" is mandatory music for a road trip, or laughing like lunatics at memes and videos, I like to keep the conversation going and have a good time.
I like taking my time through life, no need to rush through an experience and have no memories of it.
Do you like golf? Me too! Are you bad at it? Me too! Let's get together and shank a few over beers and pizza this winter.

About His Ideal Match

Sorry if this is stream of consciousness! lol My ideal match...You should be intelligent and able to hold your own if/when the conversation gets heavy. Girls who can cook are a real turn on. I like girls who don't need to drop the f-bomb every other word in order to express themselves. Don't need to be in prime physical shape but you shouldn't get winded if you have to courtesy jog across the intersection.
I want a girl who is able to go places and do things...spend a day at the State Fair, rent a canoe and paddle around the lake, go golfing, take in a show downtown...
Don't be uncomfortable with yourself. Be confident in your body, your mind, your appearance.
Talk to me! Don't make me guess what's wrong...maybe a cliche, but it's true for most guys.
Enjoy being taken care of, but don't be looking to be rescued.
Deal breaker? Drug use, regular smoking, heavy drinker.

What His Friends Say

Full disclosure, the guy is my brother. So I'm a bit biased in my review but don't let that detract you from reading on anyways. Because THIS guy is the real deal. Get your pencils ready to check all your boxes...
You want a sense of humor? This man has been laying down some of the best one liners since birth. Movie quotes are his go-to method to lighten any mood or show that he can reference any situation to a Leslie Nielsen film.
How about someone you can hold a meaningful conversation with? His wit is matched only by his intellectual mind. He reads (not just the Twilight series either). Wonder "Why we're here?" So does he. And he's just as excited as you are to hear your thoughts. Because....
He's a great listener. Did I say he can hold a conversation? Only AFTER he's done listening to your thoughts and feelings.
Want an adventurous man? He camps. And not in a van down by the river either. This guy will set a tent, build a fire, and cook a meal (Holy Sh*t he cooks too??) all while looking badass as hell doing it.
Here's the closer. Want someone who's dependable, "not like the other guys", and comes without drama? Then look no further. He is dependable as the day is long. He shows up early to everything so he wont leave you waiting when you have tickets to the play. Drama? He hates it. The man says what he means and just respectfully requests you do the same. He's definitely not like any other man you've ever been with because he has NEVER tried to be someone he isn't. A stand for the anthem, kneel for the cross, and sit with a coffee and convo guy. If your not impressed, then you CAN'T be impressed.
Give your pencils a rest ladies. Let your fingers do the work and send this guy a message that'll make him take notice. *Bonus points if you open with a line from 'Airplane'.

If you enjoy great meaningful conversations about just about everything, Jared is full of knowledge! He is a fantastic cook and learned feom the best we know. If you think you can't cook and are a willing student, he is an excellent teacher. If you like the outdoors, camping, traveling, day trips, trying new resturants you will never run out of things to do. Jared is very close to his family and I feel it would be important if you are with yours. You may be thinking that I may be just his sister and could easily be biased but the honest truth is that Jared is a GREAT guy. So if you read through his profile and your interest is piqued don't hesitate to meet one of the best I know!
