Here's the short and simple version of me:
I'm a normal guy looking for a normal girl.
The extended version:
I have a house, a super friendly kid-like dog named Scotty, and a somewhat active lifestyle. I am training for my first marathon, like to mountain bike and my 4-legged hiking buddy is ready to go at a moment's notice. I don't have much of an interest in holding down the couch and watching sports. If that's your thing, I'm not your guy. (Sure I'll go to a Super Bowl party or a baseball game but it's to be social, not because I care who wins or loses.) Although I will say I do enjoy going to hockey games & have pretty fond memories of Hershey Bears games as a kid - but still only watch hockey if I go to the game.
I love cars and motorcyles. I try to be hands on. I'm not a great gardener but I'm trying to raise blueberries. Scotty is a bird dog and tries 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.
I am happiest in relationships where we tackle projects together - regularly. This could be anything from making dinner to home renovations - just something where you can step back and say, "We did this together." If you want to impress me, giving me an expensive gift is not the way to go - the everyday little stuff like going for a walk with the fur kid & I, does. I like being around people who are passionate about something and tend to be attracted to artistic women.
I am not impressed by your job, the stamps on your passport, or the fact the Pope calls you for advice. Who you are, behind closed doors, is more important to me. I can be as subtle as a bulldozer and here is one of those times: The last point seems to be a foreign concept to a lot of women in and around 495. Awesome - you've solved world poverty. But if the answer came to you while torturing kittens, I'm still gonna think you are an asshole.
Being honest, I am looking for something that will one day lead to marraige and a family. Maybe awkward to put that out there but this is a dating site, right? I'm really not into the internet dating thing but I'm into the bar scene even less. (Once in a while is nice but I've long since outgrown my desire to regularly hang out in bars.) So, internet it is to meet people outside my normal social circle.
.....oh & if you are 5'10" or under, I can pass the 3" heel test. :-)
