I love life, and I live in the moment as much as I can. I have practiced that for years now, and I am very good at it. I will and do revisit the passed to take lessons and learn from. However, I will not and do not live there as many do. I, on the other hand am not so worried about the future that I don't enjoy today. I can only live right here and right now. So I do. And in a big way. A person should not be as blessed as I am, each and every second of each and every minute of each and every hour of each and every day. But, I assure you that I am. I think that is because I believe in God. And I also believe in His Son Jesus Christ. Thats just me, and has been since I was 24 years old. By the way. I am not a stick in the mud Christian and I do not beat people up with what I believe. But, it is my belief system. Everyone has one, trust me. This just happens to be mine. Ok?
I am very close to my family and enjoy visiting them when I can. They mean a lot to me. And I am so lucky to have them in my life. I am a fan of our theme parks here in Florida. I keep a 2 year season pass to Bush Gardens and Sea World in my billfold 24/7. Just good fun, mindless entertainment. I work hard and I like to go and play hard also. Breaks from reality are good for me. What I see and do is not easy sometimes. So playing is very important to me, and I do it often. Road trips rule btw. Anyone in?
I am looking for someone who is a Christian and at the same time knows how to take care of her man everyday, like there is no tomorrow. I think that's a great place to start. Not a guarantee, just a place to start. I am a very positive person. Looking for the same. I have great outlook on life. Looking for the same.
I have been online dating for about a year now. And it has been to say the lest an eye opener. I have been very lucky to have met a lot of good people.(mostly professional people). There have only been a few nuts cases. I have not only learned about other people, but more important, I have learned things about myself that with out this, I would have never known. So, this has been good for me. I have paid (in the begining) to be on dating sites. I no longer do that. There are more nut cases there than here. Smiles.
I have a lot of time, effort, energy and finances invested in online dating at this point. I know what works for me, and what does not work for me. Such as.
If you do not have a job and no means to support yourself. I am not here to do that for you. If you are still seeing a counselor or therapist once a week asking them what you should do next with your life. Pass me by. If you are a negative person, and being negative most of the time is your cup of tea. Drink it alone. If you are a date for dinner person in a very high end restaurant that you would never enter the door of if you where footing the bill. I don't want to talk with or ever meet. I could take a 1000 like you out every night and still not have a person in my life. (and sadly I have. lesson learned) And don't do the " A gentleman always pays " or " If you where a gentleman you would pay $191.61 for our meal and my wine on a meet and greet " (yes, I did). And many, many more like it. I am a southern gentleman and have manners that will make your head do a 360 in a heart beat. My Mom did a great job. I got it. However, it is a meet and greet the first time/date. Not the last supper. We will work our way up to more extravagant things as we get to know each other, fair enough. Cool. .......If you can't walk to the end of your block and back without passing out. We won't work. If you (in time) are not a touchy feely person and like and enourmous amount of hugging and kissing on a regular basis. We will not work. (I am not talking about clingy either, there is a difference) For example: if on a king size bed you go to your corner and I go to mine. And that makes you happy and comfortable. NO Thanks keep looking. If you don't like holding hands a lot. Having the door opened for you when possible. Me attempting to address your every need in bed and out. Then you will not like me. Please move on. If in the age of digital photography, your hand shakes so bad that your digital camera with steady shot can not find and get you into focus for your pictures. Move on. If you tell me that you ride your very expensive light weight road bike a minimun of 30 miles every morning. And I show up to meet you, and your butt is an axe handle and one hatchet wide. Your might not be telling me the real truth about that bike ride.
If you post 6 pictures of yourself. And picture 1-5 look oh soooo fine and then that six picture (You know the one that is the real you, NOW). Did you think I would not notice that? Don't stop here. I am not interested in how you looked 2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10 years ago. We all had our day. Move on. If you list on your profile 35 different sports that you do, and you have not done any of them in say 20 to thirty years. You do realize that you really don't do all those things any longer right? If you are an english teacher or just a busy body. Please don't bother correcting my profile grammar or spelling. I am not here to win a contest. My friends an family have learned to read between the lines. I hope all can see the humor in these stories. They are all true.
We will make plans together. We will know. I know what I am looking for, want and need. Hopefully you do as well. If so, we will both know it for sure. Life is ours for the taking. All we have to do is take the opportunity.
