UPDATE 3 JAN 12: I'm actually in a relationship with someone now which looks very promising. So for now, I'm just keeping this profile open for friends, and these rather addictive quizzes and questions...lol. Good luck to you all in your search.
LOOOOONG PAST the age now where I've been quite ready to settle down with the right special someone.....still waiting. I'll admit, I'm a bit picky, but this is absurd! lol. I've been very shy when it comes to meeting people all my life, thus, I've had little dating success. Once you get me talking though, you might never get me to shut up!lol... Don't get me wrong though. My love life may have been lacking over the past several years, but I still have a kinky side:-)(and bonus points if you are too BTW!...lol. EXTRA bonus points if you have a Fetlife profile! My Fetlife name is the same as here.) I just keep it in it's proper place. And above all, I respect people's boundaries in that regard. "Why do I point all this out?" you may ask? Not that I'm looking for sex right now, but one day, I DO hope to be married. And I'd rather put that on the table now so you know that's part of the package, rather than for some woman to one day find this after after we're married, then run away screaming! lol.
I'm originally from Cedar Falls, IA, which is where I lived till February 1997. I try to get back every few months when I can for the holidays and vacation. I moved here September 2002. Over the previous 4 years, I was in Anchorage, Alaska, serving out my first enlistment in the air force. After a tour at Ft. Meade, MD, I separated 4 August 2006. Lately, I'm into contracting. And yes, I must make it known I'm a huge Star Wars freak! No, I'm not one who dresses up and goes to those conventions you hear about, but I've seen the movies enough times to have memorized every line though. I've read many of the books as well. As far as my sense of humor goes, I love slapstick, and quick razor-sharp witty humor, but an even better description of my sense of humor would be "King of the Hill" type of humor. Boomhauer is definitely my favorite character from that show, which I've missed since it ended! I'm also a huge Chicago Cubs baseball fan, inspite of how dreadful they have been to watch some years, or when they collapse in others! During my free time, I'm really big into fishing, camping, softball, golfing, rollerblading, biking, and just about any other sport.
I guess MY idea of the right "special someone" (for lack of a better term) would have a quick, razor-sharp, off-the-wall sense of humor, yet be completely level-headed and down-to-earth when necessary. She should have similar Christian beliefs and values to my own. In fact, atheists and agnostics are dealbreakers as far as I'm concerned. If you can't love the Almighty, who can you love really? And therein lies my seeming contradiction, as there are not too many kinky Christians out there, but I am one of them;-) She'd also have to be a really good listener and be able to accept me for who I am. I'm certainly not perfect, nor am I expecting perfection. A girl who's into sports and the outdoors as much as I am would be a big plus, but not a requirement. Above all though, I'm looking for someone who's serious about a long-term relationship, and is patient enough for us to each get to know one another, even if that takes months rather than days or weeks.(sorry, no one-night stands) Reason being that I'm naturally very cautious by nature, perhaps to a fault. That's why to me, trust is imperative. And I believe that in order for a relationship to fully blossom, mutual trust must be absolute! And I think that starts with just getting to be really good friends, and going from there:
A couple of my pet-peeves about this site and many others are empty profiles, and people who email single word messages, such as "Hey", "Hello", "Wassup", "Hi", etc. I took the time to fill this out and help start conversation. I don't think it's asking much for you to do the same. Give me something to be interested in...you gotta sell yourself....why should I want to be interested in you? Also, needless tp say, I'm looking for someone real. If you have a blank profile, and stunningly attractive photos, it will immediately set off a red flag for me that it looks like a fake profile. I lose track of the number of profiles I see on here that use photos stolen from porn sites. I can sniff out fake profiles like a fart in the car! So scam artists, beware!
I am eccentric, quirky, and kinky
