I am searching for my partner in crime…someone to spend time with, and someone to develop a relationship with. I am not searching for a chat buddy or continuous emailing. Ultimately, I am hoping for my last first date.
I am kind of old-fashioned when it comes to dating, and I believe in chivalry. I believe in showing women respect by opening doors for them, and I can even be romantic (at least that’s what I’ve been told). I guess you could say I’m a hopeful romantic, and not a hopeless romantic.
I am an understanding guy. I understand that I haven’t walked in someone else’s shoes, or shared their histories of divorce or bad relationships. But the partner I am looking for knows the difference between life experiences, and baggage. Not all life experiences are good ones, and sometimes they’re “unfair”. But, you have the ability to take from the negative and move forward as a better and stronger person. Baggage just takes up negative space that could be filled with our happiness. So, having healed and successfully navigated through “relationship” issues is a big factor for me. Speaking of past relationships, it’s not a deal-breaker if you have children. I do not have my own, but I am a very involved Godfather to two kids, one being my nephew. I understand that children are a priority and can (rightfully so) take a lot of time commitment. However, I would ask that if you’re interested in going out on a date, that that be the indication you have time to cultivate a relationship.
I also believe that communication is an important part of a successful relationship - that can be easier than it sounds sometimes. Personally, I say what I mean, and mean what I say. I know everyone doesn’t subscribe to that style of communication, so as long as you believe in talking things through, and honesty, we’ve got a good start.
I believe in taking care of myself by working out about 5 times-a-week, and eating healthy. I have found that a relationship is easier to develop if both people are on the same page about that. I also don’t drink alcohol – not because I am in recovery, simply because I choose that as part of my healthy lifestyle.
Some of my interests include hanging out with family and friends, movies, listening to a wide-range of music, and catching a hockey from time-to-time.
Okay, so here’s the fine print: I’m a decent guy (my ex-girlfriend even helped me write this…honestly!), I have a sarcastic sense of humor, I can be very silly, and I try not to take myself too seriously. If you aren’t the kind of woman who can let loose in a silly way without alcohol, we will be a mismatch, not a match.
The even finer print: I don’t mind tattoos that are tastefully done. I guess that’s up to each person’s interpretation of what tasteful is, but that should speak for itself. Also, I am not interested in dating someone who smokes. Period. And last on the finer-print clause is that I have recently become allergic to cats (even though I grew up with cats and dogs!).
What I have to offer is loyalty, no fear of commitment, an ability to communicate (yes, even though I’m a guy), a goofy sense of humor, and treating the woman I’m involved with as a valued part of my life. I don't believe that once the relationship starts, the compliments and kind gestures end. So, if you are able to offer the same, and have read this far, let’s find out if there’s some chemistry.
Thanks for reading about me. I wish you the best in your search for that special someone.
