Some of my best friends are people that I've never met or have yet to meet. I like to meet quality people, so if you have your program together, hit me up. If I entertain the idea of getting into a relationship, you have to be yourself and have a sense of self-worth. If your faith is strong, cool, but don't be one of those "over the top" Christian's that would blow up an abortion clinic or do anything extreme and justify it as, "it's the Lord's will. In other words, I'm looking for a BALANCED individual that is kind, even to those that have different cultures or beliefs. I'm a white-collar professional, gym rat, a big kid at heart, kind, loyal, faithful etc. I do have a bit of a "warped" sense of humor at times and I can be a little naughty(nothing to worry about). At the end of the day, I got the core qualities that really count and know how to cultivate a healthy relationship. I don't like to go to bed mad, hold grudges, play games etc, rather resolve things in a kind, respectful manner. I don't have a temper, rather I'm easy going and fairly laid back, but don't mistake my kindness for weakness. If you are out of line, I'll let you know and chew your backside if I have to. LOL Mike does not play. LOL (actually I do, but not when it's something serious. )My background:High School: High Honors Graduate, Student Body President, Capt. of my Track and Cross-Country Teams;MVP runner, Several clubs etc. Recruited nationwide of athletic and academic accomplishments. College: University of Washington, UNLV with four years with focus on social sciences, but didn't finish degree. Professional: Mortgage Sales/Management, Marketing Director, other sales etc. Also: a professional poker player(paid off college loans with poker)You would be surprised how many professional poker players are Christian or people of faith. Like anything else, (church membership included) you have people that are both good and not so good. Personal: I'm into entertainment, movies, sports, comedy, music of all kinds. I'm more liberal in this area than most Christians, I used to do some acting (opening Caesar's Palace Magical Empire in Las Vegas back in the day. ) If you are a prude, I'm not the one for you, sorry. ;-) I'm a gym rat and I love to spend time with family and friends. If you are into the aforementioned, cool. I also like to hang out at Starbucks, Borders, Barnes & Nobel etc. Travel is cool. Bottom line: To know me is to love me. What I'm looking for: a fairly attractive woman, but you DON'T have to be a model. Just work with what you got. I prefer a nice, kind smile. If you are 5ft tall or 5ft 11in tall, I don't really care. I'm 6ft 2in tall and fairly muscular. I put a couple of my fat face picutes on this page, so you can see me at my worst. LOL Since I play basketball a great deal, I get hurt. When I get hurt, I gain weight quick. Luckily, I have a muscular build, so I don't look totally fat, LOL. I always lose it when I'm healthy. You should be a selfless, not selfish, individual. I prefer you to be educated and/or successful in career. If you are wealthy, than I guess you can be my SUGAR MAMMA! LOL I make jokes, but I don't have an ego if my woman makes more than me. I would consider myself fortunate. Just don't try and put it in my face or I will PUT YOU IN CHECK. :-) I'm cool with material things, but I don't place real value in them. I care about the core values. What's going on in terms of loyalty, commitment, communication etc. are important to me. Love is a choice two people make and I don't take that lightly. What else can I tell you. I've never been married and I don't have any children. Living in Las Vegas, good gals are difficult to find. I guess that's true anywhere, but I take the concept of marriage and children seriously. I'm not going to rush into anything. Being confident the person I end up with is not going to bail, if there is a rough spot. I believe in not allowing things to build up to that point. I believe in the little things that people do for each other. In closing, I've writtn a novel, but I don't want to mislead anyone taking the time to check me out. There's much more, but the above is a good start. Thanks for taking the time to read this. As I don't have an active acct here, you will have to seek me out on a most popular networking site that I can't name, but if you are clever, you will find "a space that is mine. "
