Welcome, gentlemen, to myprofile on JustGuys.net!
My name is Chris, I am 22years, old, and I live in the very beautiful and
diverse city of Portland,Oregon. I was born on May 20th, 1990, in the town
of Astoria in thenorthwestern-most corner of Oregon, which you may
know best as the filminglocation for The Goonies, Kindergarten Cop, and
the Free Willy series. Ilived there through most of 1997, which is when my
family moved slightly southto Seaside, Oregon. I resided there for a couple
years before moving tothe small town of Gladstone near Portland, where I
lived for a few moreyears. Finally, I settled down in Milwaukie, a
small town in the PortlandMetro Area about 15 minutes south of downtown
Portland itself. I've lived in Oregon all my life
and Icurrently intend on remaining here into the
I could tell you that I'm"just an average guy," but I'd be lying. Truth be
told, I'm quite a unique andinteresting fellow, and I'm not just saying that!
While I am indeed 21 years of age, I tend tofeel, act, and think like someone two or three
times my age. My views on some subjects can be
consideredquite "old fashioned," and overall my maturity is
a bit shocking formy age. I approach things from a veryadult and parent-like angle. As aresult, I don't fit in all that well with the
majority of my age group, andthat certainly doesn't make "meeting someone" any
easier for me.
When it comes to alcohol,drugs (including pot), and cigarettes, I'll have
none of it. I don't oppose someone drinking an
"occasional"beer or glass of wine, but I hate drunkenness and
alcohol-consumingminors. I also hate cigarettes because Ilike clean air (they don't make you cool), and pot
makes people dumb, so I hatethat too. Can't anyone just bethemselves? Honestly…
While I do tend to labeleveryone my age and younger as being immature,
irresponsible, and quite frankly"stupid," I do acknowledge that there are a few
bright lights outthere in this otherwise dark world we live in, and
that's exactly who I'd liketo spend the rest of my life with (I'll dive into
detail on that subject alittle further down on this page).
You may now find yourselfwondering what I'm currently doing with my life.
At the moment I'm not in college and amlooking for a decent job, so things are a bit slow
in my little corner of theworld. But even if things were goingwell, I don't think I'd ever be completely
satisfied with my life. I have achievable goals,
such as moving intomy own place and buying a car, both currently
projected for early 2012, butultimately that won't do much for me. Intruth, I have absolutely no idea what to do with
my life. If one thing is clear, though, I have
nodesire whatsoever to work my whole life and die
like the rest of the"drones" out there. The"college, work, retire, die" routine simply won't
cut it. So now I'm tasked with "finding myself,"and it won't be easy. It hasn't beeneasy for the last three years…
I have a seeminglyunlimited number of dreams. For example,I would absolutely love to visit the pyramids of
Egypt, explore the mysteriesof the Bermuda Triangle, explore other planets
(if/when such an ability came tobe), and live a rich and fulfilling life with my
own private three-mile racetrack in my backyard. More than anythingthough I'd just like to live the rest of my life
with a man that I love. That's my greatest dream
of all (rightalongside my dream to stop using "…" at the end of
every paragraph,as if I'm not finished…).
In my free time, I like todo stuff on my computer, be it constructing
auto-calculating Microsoft Excelspreadsheets, researching cars, or listening to
music. I also enjoy a good movie or TV show, andI've been known to play some Xbox here and there.
Out of the house, I also like to see moviesin theaters, drive anywhere, and pretty much do
anything outdoors, includingsightseeing, hiking, etc.
Well I think that's aboutit for the personal aspect! Below aremultiple sections covering a variety of other
subjects, including my greatest loves,political standing, religious beliefs, and more.
The automobile is, indeed,the greatest love of my life. I've lovedcars since I was a small boy, calling out the
names of pickup trucks that woulddrive by my house in Astoria. I canstill recall every vehicle my neighbors owned back
then, which included aBronco, F-150, F-250, Camaro, Monte Carlo, and El
Camino. If memory serves, I believe the
mid-1990'sFord F-250 was the first vehicle I ever wanted,
which at the time was brandnew.
As I grew older, my lovefor cars grew stronger. In the late90's, I became quite taken with my first exotic
car, the Lamborghini Diablo. Not long after that,
in the fourth grade andliving in the city, I began to draw the cars I
obsessed over. I still remember drawing a blue
Dodge ViperGTS with white stripes for a school project in 4th
grade, and I still have thedrawing of a 1999 Porsche 911 Turbo police
interceptor, which I believe is theoldest car drawing I have on record. Iwanted to be a cop when I was young, so I would
always apply police livery tothe cars I drew…
Come fifth grade, I begandesigning my very own cars from scratch. I designed a variety of models that became quite
popular in class, andeach was in full color with their own personal
names. I continued this up through high school,where my skills could finally be used in computer
programs. I'd scan or take pictures of my
drawings athome, then put them on a school computer and trace
the work in AdobeIllustrator 10. I did this in several ofmy computer classes, and while you'd think the
instructors would be quite crosswith me for completely ignoring my daily
assignments, they admired my work andin some cases allowed me to use them as the
assignments instead of theclass-assigned work. All of my teachersknew I was a car guy, though. If I pulledup to my old high school in a new Camaro, my
creative writing teacher wouldn'tat all be surprised. In fact, he'dexpect it. And if I landed a job workingfor General Motors, my advanced computer
graphics/art teacher wouldn't besurprised either. He actually pushed meto work for GM as a car designer…
Sadly, I stopped drawingcars after my graduation in 2008. I lostaccess to the expensive computer programs, and
lost the drive I had inschool. I even lost my desire to designcars professionally. I never stoppedloving cars, but I became confused and unsure what
to do with my life. Not long ago I was able to
get a 30-day trialof the newest Adobe Illustrator on my computer,
and I redeemed myself bydesigning a plausible rear-drive Chevrolet sedan
based largely on theAustralian HSV E3 GTS (you'd know it here as the
Pontiac G8). I ran out of time before I could
finish it,but that one piece of work resurrected my love to
In another corner, there'sdriving. I love to drive! In fact, I've given
lots of thought intoprofessionally racing cars, perhaps one day
joining world famous drivers LewisHamilton, Michael Schumacher, Sebastian Vettel,
and Rubens Barrichello inFormula 1. If I couldn't join F1 (though I could,
considering Sebastian Vettelis my age), then I'd probably stick with racing a
Camaro in Grand-Am racing, includingthe Rolex and Continental Tires series races. Anyway, I'm still giving all of that thought, as I
think it would be funas hell!
I'm not ruling anythingout, though. For all I know I could endup testing new products for General Motors or go
on as a quality inspector forChrysler vehicles. But no matter whichpath I decide to follow, at the end of each day
I'll always be a car guy, andautomobiles will shape my life moving forward…
Another great love in mylife is the love for firearms. Likecars, this also dates back to my childhood, where
I would get my gun fix buyusing Super Soakers and dart guns. In myteenage years I switched to Airsoft guns, which if
you don't know are 1:1 scalerealistic-looking weapons that shoot small 6mm
plastic BB's at an average of 150-500feet-per-second, which can be painful but not
deadly. I found that to be a cheap(ish) way to
get ahold of the guns I've long admired in movies and
videogames, such as theFN-P90, MP5-A4, Benelli M3, and Glock 17.
Eventually I was able touse real weapons, which have included a .12-gauge
police-issue shotgun, .308 sniperrifle, and handguns of various calibers (9mm, .40,
.44, .45, .357, and.38). As it turns out, I'm a very goodshot with any kind of projectile weapon…
I plan on eventuallygetting a concealed weapons carry permit for the
state of Oregon, which wouldallow me to legally carry a weapon on my person.
Contrary to what many would like you tobelieve, we don't live in a violence-free world
where unicorns graze in fieldsand people joyously skip down the streets holding
hands. We live in a dangerous world, and we mustknow how to protect ourselves.
Music is very important inmy life, much like cars. Whenever I'mdriving somewhere in my car or up late at night in
my room, I'm alwayslistening to music (I'm doing so now). Forthat time, my mind can free itself from the grasp
of the world's problems (muchlike watching Frasier).
My taste in music consistsprimarily of alternative, metal, and rock, but I
also have a soft spot for afew brilliant videogame soundtracks and even some
classical music. I can actually tolerate most
music that's outthere, as long as it isn't country, rap, or
religious in tone. I will say, though, Conway
Twitty has a fewcatchy songs that I enjoy, and Cee Lo Green's
beautiful voice (and awesome teeth) lured me into
his album "The Lady Killer."
Specifically, the kind ofmusic I like includes (but is not limited to) the
following: 30 Seconds to Mars, Adam Lambert,
Beethoven, Blondie(One Way Or Another), Crazy Town (select songs),
Dead by Sunrise, Disturbed,Dream Theater, Fear Factory (select songs), Fort
Minor, Infected Mushroom,Korn, Linkin Park, and Paul Oakenfold. As for videogame soundtracks, I love music from
Duke Nukem 3D, ForzaMotorsport, the Halo series, Half-Life series,
Need For Speed series (pre-2003),Mass Effect series, and Test Drive Unlimited 2.
You'll find my favoritesongs for this present moment in time on the
provided playlist here on my page.
As I touched on earlier, Ilove designing cars. That's not the onlything I love to draw, though, as I also enjoy
designing house blueprints,firearms, computers, and smartphones. Idon't do a lot of drawing these days, but when I
do I'm fully dedicated to thetask at hand and enjoy the prospect of creating a
product that people could oneday buy.
I'm far from the days of24-hour Halo parties, but I still enjoy a good
quality videogame here andthere. I'm a big Xbox 360 guy, and you'llfind me playing all of the best games money can
buy, including Battlefield 3, Forza Motorsport4, Mass Effect 2, Gears of War 3, Fallout: New
Vegas, and many more. I'ma big car guy, so go ahead and guess where I spend
most of my game time. I do have an Xbox Live
account though, and I play quite a bit of
Battlefield 3. If you're interested inplaying together hit me up!
Space is yet another thingI am almost dangerously obsessed with. From the Crab Nebula to Orion's Belt, from dark
matter to solar flares, I'mcrazy about it all. There are billionsof galaxies in our seemingly endless universe, and
each galaxy has billions ofstars and planets. To put things inperspective, our sun is just one star, and it has
eight planets orbiting aroundit. Not all stars will have eightplanets in orbit, some won't have any planets at
all, and some will have morethan one sun. That's crazy shit!
I believe in life on otherplanets, and I think it is entirely possible that
so-called"extra-terrestrial life" has visited Earth at some
point. It's not because I'm some crazy UFO nut,
it'sbecause it's impossible for life not to exist on
other planets when there aretrillions and trillions of other worlds out
there. We couldn't be the only planet out there
withintelligent life, though you can hardly call our
species"intelligent," seeing as how we fly planes into
our own buildings,kill each other, fight over small pieces of our
own planet, and breed to thepoint of overpopulation…
I'm a big TV guy, and whenCNN actually isn't on my "box with moving
pictures" like it is mostof the time, I'm probably watching something like
Frasier, American Dad, FamilyGuy, The Cleveland Show, South Park, Stargate
SG-1, Ghost Hunters, TheUniverse, Top Gear, Sons of Anarchy, Modern
Family, or MotorWeek. The Shield and 24, two
amazing shows that nolonger air on television, are also among my
My movie preferences alignmostly with comedy and action genres, including
such films as Religulous, BlackHawk Down, the Naked Gun series, District 9, the
James Bond series (especiallythe ones with Daniel Craig), The Dark Knight,
Shooter, The Negotiator, Airplane1 & 2, Transformers, Gran Torino, Tommy Boy, The
Island, and the Star Warsseries. I even like some of the morefamily-oriented movies like Cars, A Bug's Life,
WALL-E, and Cats & Dogs. You young folks out
there probably have nofucking clue what these movies are, but I also
enjoy Chitty Chitty Bang Bangand The Happiest Millionaire.
I am a registeredIndependent, and for good reason. Forthe most part, both the Democratic and Republican
parties are incompetentbecause of their partisanship. It'samazing anything gets done in Washington these
days. I hate the overly complicated and
purposelysplit nature of our political system, but I still
enjoy voting. I figure that, perhaps, I can make
a differenceby trying to vote the right people into office. Sadly, millions of Americans only vote along party
lines and/or don'tgive a damn about who really gets sent to run this
While I can't agree with absolutelyeverything President Obama has done, I agree with
the vast majority. I think he's been a good
president overall,considering what he's had to deal with during his
tenure in office, and only a clichédRepublican or someone not plugged into the
(non-Fox News) news world could sayotherwise. Sure, the economy is bad, butit could be worse. He saved two greatAmerican automakers from collapsing and took down
Osama bin Laden two thingsthe opposing party wouldn't and couldn't do. At the end of the day, I strongly support
President Obama and intend onvoting for him in the 2012 election*. Andthat's coming from a man who voted for the
Republican ticket in 2008…
I consider myself anAtheist, though I welcome any proof that can alter
my standing. I'm not afraid to admit that, in
this highlyreligious country, I don't believe in God, or at
least "God" as weknow it. I do, however, believe thatsomething weird is going on something hinky.
Something most minds likely can't comprehend.
The universe is a vast and infinite space withpower beyond your wildest imagination. Ibelieve the answer to our existence, and the
reason for it, is literally out ofthis world.
The main problem withreligion is that it allows people who don't have
all of the answers to thinkthat they do. It gives lunatics andmadmen the freedom to voice complete idiocy and
nonsense in the streets of thisfine country. It gives the insane ashield to hide behind. But it also givespeople hope and something to stand for. While I am not religious myself, I respect those
who are. I believe in the freedom of choice. And
if religious organizations want to helpthose in natural disasters and whatnot, I won't
stop them or object to theiractions, as long as they don't try to convert
those who don't follow theirbeliefs.
WhyI'm On JustGuys
When I originally joinedback in 2007 or so, I was just a horny teenager
whose curiosity and Googlesearches brought him here. Today, as Icelebrate four years of membership and more than
47,000 page views, I'm lookingmostly for friends, with the hope that a serious
relationship could develop outof it. I've met a lot of really greatfriends on this site, and I hope to meet many
WhatI'm Looking For…
Love. That's what I want more than
anything else. Love. It'sone of the most powerful forces in the world.
Every human being needs it. We can't see love,
but we can see its effects,and we can feel it in our hearts.
I need someone who trulyloves me, and who I can truly love. Ineed someone who I can talk to, and who I can
trust with every fiber of mybeing. I need someone who is caring andtender, someone who I can laugh with, and cry
with, and die with. I need Mr. Right…
I still consider your appearanceto be important, but I'm throwing the need for
common interests under the bus. If love is indeed
the greatest force in theworld, nothing can get in its way. Thevisual aspect, however, is often the key that
sparks this force into existence.
So yes, I need love andsomeone who is attractive and reasonably
in-shape. When it comes to age, I'm looking for a
guyno older than 25, with a rare exception to those
of you who are compatible andolder, though not exceeding 30 years of age. Political and religious standing doesn't matter to
be, so long as itdoesn't interfere with our relationship. Lastly, if there's one place where I must be
strict, it's yourgeographical location compared to mine. In order for a relationship to work out, I'll need
you as close aspossible. Anything else would feelartificial…
As for what I can offer, Ican provide you with an unlimited amount of love
and care. You, as my boyfriend, are the single
mostimportant thing in my life. Fuck work,fuck cars, YOU are the greatest thing that has
ever happened to me, and I willstrike down all those who dare attempt to harm you
or jeopardize the love weshare. As clichéd as it is, my love foryou burns like the fire of a thousand suns, and
while suns will inevitably dieafter millions of years, my love for you will
Please don't hesitate to sendme a message. While it could take me awhile to read it, I will reply. That, myfriend, is a guarantee :)
Thereare a number of ways we can keep in touch, but not
every method is available toeveryone. Below is a list of ways tomaintain communication:
As you can clearly see, Iam in fact on JustGuys! Here, you aremore than welcome to send me a message, comment,
wink, and/or friendrequest. I will always respond to yourmessages, whether you've included one paragraph,
three paragraphs, tenparagraphs, or just a simple "hi." For the most
part, I replyto messages within a few days after you send them,
but in some cases I may beoffline longer.
I have the instant messagingfeature on this site disabled so I can concentrate
on your messages. If you wish to chat, please see
I have a Yahoo! account thatI use for instant messaging, but I don't get on
there too often. However, if you're seriously
interested inchatting you can request my s/n and I'll work hard
at appearing online so wecan talk!
I mentioned in the Gaming sectionthat I have an Xbox Live account, but as of now
I'm limiting access to preventoverpopulating my friends list. Iprobably won't give you my gamertag if we've never
talked or haven't talkedmuch. The more we talk, the more likelyI am to accept you as a friend on Xbox Live and
kill you in Battlefield 3 :P
Cellular(MMS, SMS, Voice)
I have a cell phone likemost people, but I don't hand my number out like
free candy to the neighborhoodchildren anymore. To get my digits, you'llhave to be good friend and/or someone who I have a
strong interest in(relationship potential).
I'm even stricter when itcomes to talking on the phone, but the same basic
thing applies here as well.
I'm on Facebook, but Ihave a tight leash on my account. I willonly add you on Facebook if I consider you to be a
good friend, and that's astrict line I'm standing by, at least for now. If I do add you, though, you will have access to
many more photos of methan you see here, as well as several albums of my
favorite cars and much more.
I have a Google+ account as
well, and unlike the tight hold I have on my
Facebook account, you can add me by request, even
if you aren't a good friend of mine. So if
you, like me, have dared to cheat on Facebook with
another social networking site, feel free to hit
As I conclude thisself-biography, I would like to congratulate those
of you who actually read thewhole thing. Not everyone is interestedin sitting stationary for 10-15 minutes while they
read about a completestranger. So to those of you who toughedit out and read my entire profile, I thank you!
Some have asked why I putso much work into my profile, and the answer is
simple: I'm just being myself. Every picture,
word, and song is a piece ofme. I apply the same amount of devotionto everything in my life, and when I'm in it I'm
in it to win it. This page isn't just some
meaningless profileonline. This page actually representswho I am as a person.
You are more than welcometo send me a message, comment, wink, and/or friend
request if you so desire,and remember that I will always reply to anything
Thanks for visiting myprofile, gentlemen! Be smart, be safe,and be yourself.
