I spend a lot of time looking for a profile which inspires me to send a message and when I do, it's an original with nothing copy/pasted, because I believe that the woman I'm looking for is worth every moment of my time and effort. Of course, this doesn't mean it'll be good, but I try.
I don't like referring to myself as a manly man, because it implies that I'm not in touch with my feelings, or even lack them entirely, and I'm not afraid to admit that I get choked up about feel-good stories and sad stories alike, but I do/have done manly things, such as 1/4 mile drag racing or being a lumberjack for 8 seasons when I lived in Canada, which means you may come home one day to find I've chopped down your dead tree, made firewood, kindling and a chopping block, made a pet out of that black bear that keeps coming into the city (his name is Bob), and made myself an ice cube igloo in your back yard because it was a sweltering 75 degrees and I was homesick.
I'm a forward thinking progressive with old-fashioned values. I believe people should give their word with a handshake, help their neighbors, raise children on garden fresh vegetables instead of candy, wash their hands before handling food, put the toilet lid down, train their pets to behave (and their children, which should go without saying, but these days...), value self-sufficiency, prefer homes that are cozy to those that echo, and I think getting high or intoxicated isn't a prerequisite to having a good time.
With that said, I'm not religious and I don't believe in Karma as the Buddhists do, where a person's actions affect not only their current life but also future lives, but I do believe that for the most part, you get out what you put in. So, I put in respect, honesty and integrity, and ask for the same in return. I once put in an axolotl, a platypus and a blob fish; now I'm here.
I'm looking for a woman with more to offer than cleavage photos, who is kind and generous, has an adventurous spirit, is good at resolving conflict, possesses the intelligence and self awareness to understand that this profile is a representation of herself and puts thought and effort into it, just like she would an actual relationship. I know you're out there somewhere, and when I find you; (Match keeps deleting my link, so go to youtube and search "Borat Pam Anderson" and watch the first video)
I'm mentally stable, dependable, honest, solid as a rock and twice as smart.
