Also, there is some Adult Language here - It is guaranteed that you will see the word "fuck" more than once, used as an explicative and/or as a pejorative and quite possibly other adult language usage as well!
I am a widower. I lost my wife of 10 years on Feb. 13th 2007. So please bare with me. I'm new to the dating scene - again. I never believed that I'd be starting over. And to be completely honest, I don't know what or who I'm looking for, I do know that being alone sucks, big time! So, I have no expectations - I just want to meet some women and make some friends and maybe, just maybe find someone special.
Yes I have long hair, which seems to be unpopular for a lot of women. The following list can be used to describe my hair. Long, brown, graying, curly, thinning and balding. At the moment I'm somewhere between Ben Franklin and Worf from Star Trek, without the skull ridges. But I'm afraid Mr. Clean is in my future.
I wear 2 ear rings in my left ear - a small gold hoop w/ruby and a diamond stud. Yes, I have all of my own teeth, though some are capped but none are store bought, yet. (BIG GRIN)
I've recently started working out and I'm hoping to continue to get back into shape. I'm heavier than I should be but not as bad as some guys I see. I'm 6'2" and wear 40" waist pants at the moment.
**UPDATE** I'm in a 38" waist pants now!
Here's hoping that will change soon, the waist not the height! I've got a bit of a gut so I guess I'm in the cuddly range. **UPDATE** The Gut is dropping pretty quickly!
I also have a tendency to avoid shaving until I have to - I kinda have that Don Johnson/Miami Vice look. Hey, razors are expensive and hurt too! But I'll do it if properly wheedled and coaxed.
I'm into my computers, yes I'm a multi-PC person, and I love playing online games and first person shooters. I'm not into TV or Sports. I will occasionally watch some sports stuff but I don't follow any of it and I don't go to live events. I could be talked into going to support friends/family/kids but not as an avocation like a lot of guys. I also don't watch TV, sitcoms and such. I had DirecTV for many years and only watched the movie channels, Sci-Fi, and the history/science stuff.
The live entertainment I would like to see is concerts and maybe some plays, but I hate doing stuff alone so I haven't done anything for a while.
About pets. I have pet allergies - short term exposure to dogs make me sniffle - cats give me bronchitis. I bought a $500 dollar cat one time that nearly killed me! He went back to the breeder and I didn't even ask for a refund.
That religion thing - I enjoy discussing comparative religion and am always interested in the viewpoint of others. What I don't believe in is forcing beliefs on others. I don't believe that any one faith has got everything exactly right and I know that all faiths have many things wrong - i.e. the Crusades and Jihad are just 2 examples.
I was raised Southern Baptist/Church of God... But I rarely go to church. I believe there is a "God" or "Higher Being" but I don't believe in the men representing him/it, most of them are in it for the money and power. I believe that the Bible was inspired by God but written by man - thus fallible.
I also don't understand why Christians, Jews, and Muslims can't get along - they all worship the same God and even agree about the basic features of their faiths. But I'll happily defend your right to believe in the Great Snookum even though I don't agree with it personally.
I'm a veteran - I spent 4 years in the US Army between 1982-1986 and got to go a few places and do some stuff before deciding that it wasn't a career for me.
Ethnically - I'm of mostly of Scotch/Irish decent with a little Cherokee thrown in for good measure. You can tell by the high cheek bones. I've got a Great Grandmother that was full blooded and cousins that look like they should move to the reservation. So that makes me a typical 9th generation mutt from the South East. It's just too bad I got more of the Scotch/Irish - one of my grandmothers had less gray hair at 68 than I did in my 30's.
So that's pretty much me. The person I'm looking for should be witty, rich, fun, rich, charming, rich, beautiful, rich, yada, rich, yada...
Naw, just somebody who is real, not fake or nutz!, can laugh at themselves and with others, has an open mind and who cares, about something, anything at all, and can care about others.
If I interest you then give me a shout. I'll try to keep this up to date and get some pictures. Hmmmm, I don't seem to have any that flatter me. I got a lot that don't flatter me though ;-)
I am rebuilding myself, better than I was, and stronger, faster
