So this is profile ver 2.0. I have one woman friend who tells me I should stop trying and it’ll just happen. Just like hitting the lotto, huh? Or another that tells me I need to be happy alone and with myself before I’ll be able to be happy with somebody else. Ok I get that, but I am happy with me, I just want to share the happiness! Plus I kinda see it like chocolate, if one is good isn’t two better? And I know some of you are now thinking “oh sure and at some point he’ll wants 3 or more!” Nope, too much of a good thing will make you sick.
So 2.0, well I’m going to tell you some things about me.
I wear suits everyday to work.
On the weekends you’ll find me in jeans or hiking pants (those are the ones that zip off in to shorts, love them!) and a t-shirt.
I’d rather play a sport than watch it, if I have to watch it, then it should be live.
I don’t drink wine, or beer. Just never got a taste for either, but I do enjoy mixed drinks. Also doesn’t bother me if you like them.
I’m not a foodie, at least not at this point. I’ve tried a lot of things in my travels and I’ve settled on just basic foods. The flip side is that I love going out to eat at new places.
I need to be active, with some down time sprinkled in. And with a bad knee currently I’m not at active as I’d like and it’s driving me nuts. Wish the dr would hurry up!
I’m a computer guy at work. I fix all things computer. So you could say I’m a bit of a geek. I also like to tinker. I like to work with my hands and build things.
I love to bake, but I’ll usually give it all away. How many cheese cakes and cookies can I eat?
Love camping, but certainly don’t want to rough it. Like staying in hotels too.
I think I’m a dichotomy (yes I used google to make sure I spelled it right). So here are a few things that I like without having to go in to a lot of detail.
Camping, reading, going for a drive in the car, taking the train (want to do a cross country one), flying, climbing trees (SRT climbing), relaxing in a hammock, baking, photography, exploring places, science stuff (see geek thing above), movies (all sorts), music (has to be on all the time it seems), computers, just getting back in to shooting (only paper targets), astronomy, traveling, woods/mountains/beach.
There are more facets to me than what I even know. I'm always learning and growing and becoming more.
At this point I should at least give you some idea of what I’m looking for, right? I think it’s a shorter list than what I wrote for me so bear with me a little longer.
You want to have fun. If we’re walking along and we see a playground you might want to hit the swings.
You want to kiss with passion. And often.
You want to work together, be a team, partners, “I got your back”.
You want to leave notes for me like I’m gonna do for you.
You’ll try things. See my list of interests above.
You can make plans, either for life, for a weekend/trip, or for dinner.
You can not have a plan and still be good working on the fly.
You can and do dress up, but dress down too. I’m all about dressing for the occasion (no heels when going for a walk in some woods).
Basically I’m looking for somebody who is low maintenance, but likes to get polished too. You’re adventuresome. You’re daring at times. You want roots. I want a woman who will be a partner, an equal. Relationships are all about back and forth, right? At least the good ones.
Of course there is more to me, and to you, and that leaves some room to talk and explore each other. I’m allergic to cats so that might be a deal breaker, same thing with smoking (I like to kiss remember?) Wonder if you’ve gotten this far to have read that. Well here’s to hope you’re out there. I’m fine with the role of “man” and having to write first, but it’s nice to hear from you first too. And it doesn’t even have to be much, “Hi liked your profile” is enough to start a conversation.
Oh I should add this too. I see online dating as a way to be introduced to people I wouldn’t normally meet. So I like to email enough to know that we have some good banter back and forth. THEN we can plan a date to meet. If we can’t even have a since of banter online I dread to think what would happen in person! That doesn’t take weeks but I think more than a day or two is needed. I have to put this cause its happened where I’ve been told that after 10 emails over about 2 weeks they thought I only wanted a email buddy….
If I’m not what you are looking for I truly wish you the best in finding what you are looking for. Laugh loud, love early, enjoy everything that comes your way.
