But, I'm soldiering on in hopes at some point in time, I will find a normal girl looking for a normal guy, such as myself - someone who would actually like to get married and have a family. Maybe awkward to throw that out there, but hey, this is a dating site, right? I'm not saying I want to rush into things but, that is the end goal. There are so many people on here who TALK about finding "the one" yet don't want to BE about finding "the one".
Lemme continue with my brand of bulldozer subtlety for a minute.....from reading the women's profile there are two types of guys posting: those who are boyfriend material (which many of you SAY you are looking to find), and guys who are just looking to get laid. When you tell me about this fabulous career that requires you to work 12 hours a day, 8 days a week, or requires you to be away from home 13 months a year; you don't do anything but raise red flags for me. You are only going to get the creeps just looking to get laid. Why? Glad you asked.....because what I interpret from that message is (speaking long-term, because that's what I am on here for) there is not going to be much shared sacrifice that relationships require because your career is too important for you to figure out how to create a balanced life. I'm going to do all the sacrificing but be able to say that I am in a relationship and get none of the long-term benefits - like comparative advantage. Someone who has a job they enjoy AND does stuff outside of work they enjoy is really sexy. If your conversations revolve around work I'm going to get bored really quick.
Have I struck a chord with anyone yet?
Oh and when you write about the 27 countries that you've visited and post pictures of you chillin' with the Dalai Lama, you are just making yourself unapproachable online as well.
Now have I struck a chord with anyone?
But about me, I can be a smart ass on a world class level who will leave you in stitches. I can also be as serious as a heart attack, if needed. I try to be as open and honest as I can with everyone (hence the profile so far). I love cars and motorcyles. I try to be very hands on. I like to run & mountain bike. I am trying to raise blueberries. I have a bird dog named Scotty. He is like my kid. He works very hard to keep the birds away from the blueberry bushes. I also volunteer, from time to time, with a couple of rescues. If you don't like dogs, it is not going to work out. Just being honest.
Fun fact about Scotty - all dogs have "the spot", right? You know the one you scratch and their back leg moves.....I swear he can turn the spot on and off, at will. Even I can't get him to do it all the time. But if he has a "crush" on you, he'll pull his ears tight against his head and the back leg will move like there is no tomorrow.
I am happiest in relationships where we tackle projects together - regularly. (Could be anything from making dinner to terracing a hill for an herb garden, for example - just something tangible.) It's bonding to be able to step back and say, "Hey, we did this, together." Besides, life isn't all frolicking among the tall grasses on a sunny days. When the unexpected comes up (like they tend to in projects), it would be nice to know how the other person reacts. What better way is there to learn about the dynamics of the relationship than by doing stuff together?
I'm not much into sitting on the couch and watching sports. Have no fears about becoming a football-widow with me. There are just too many other interests that I would rather spend my time on. I am not saying I won't watch a game, it's just that there needs to be some event for me to sit and watch, maybe a baseball game, for example (yes, meeting a few friends at a bar qualifies as an event, going to a game qualifies as an event - among others). For me, its more about being social than the game itself. However, I have no problems with embarrassing myself playing volleyball, or kickball, or.....it's just I would rather be doing than watching.
.....oh & if you are 5'10" or under, I can pass the 3" heel test.
