I am not going to start off by boring you with yet another profile telling you how perfect, active, well traveled, accomplished and charming I am. You have probably found that about a hundred times in the other profiles. I believe that words are cheap, but actions speak much louder.
I have flaws (we all do), but I won't list them here. I know that seems to be a unique thing to put in a profile on a dating site, but they exist. But I am not self deprecating; nor do I lack confidence...I am just being honest. Some women still find me attractive. I do the best I can with what I have. While I really do appreciate someone caring, I don't like to be mothered. I am not a big fan of having someone starting sentences with, "You need to" ...and my guess is, neither are you...and I won't. I had a phenomenal mom and do not need another one. I don't always eat and exercise the way I should. I hate going to the doctor, but amazingly enough, when I do, he tells me I am in great shape.
However, I really am 6' 1" tall (I hear men lie about their height). Yes, I am single and totally unattached. I am NOT interested in serial dating and one nights stands. I am a man who knows how to treat that special woman. I can't tell you how many profiles I have read on here where ladies have written that they are tired of the players and drama and they want a man they can actually trust. I can participate in a conversation that's not all about me. If we meet, I will share my interests, career, likes and dislikes, but I also want to know about your life as well.
So, if you are looking for a grown up, a man you can trust...and if I passed the picture test (it's okay, we all do it), you should feel free to message me sometime (I like a woman who takes initiative as well).
Sorry, but I MUST say this....Please be height-weight proportionate (don't hate...it's just my preference). If you really don't look like your pictures and you show up looking a lot different, you are either being purposefully deceitful or in denial...either way, I will be very disappointed...as I have been too many times already. I hear a lot of men show up older or shorter....and I know (by experience) a lot of women show up substantially heavier (than their pics)....and I have honestly grown very tired of it.
Honestly....just be you and let's see where it goes....no rush.
You have a sense of humor, can discuss differences without arguing, are faithful and....want to be treasured by a faithful man. You are curious about the world around you. You can take a joke, are not easily offended and are generally happy. You understand chemistry is different than "love at first sight"..... (which I don't think really exists anyway). If more people would grow into love, rather than "fall" into it, I think more loves would last.
I don't think I have corresponded with one person who admits they love this, often frustrating, but seemingly necessary process. Here's a fundamental problem with online dating:
The traditional way is that you meet someone out or through someone else and if you are interested, you get a phone number and start dating. I don't think the expectations are so pressing. Things would either develop or they wouldn't; but development takes time.
With online dating, there seems to be a buffet of "choices" ....so what do we do after the first meeting? Go check our inboxes to see who "else" is out there, even if it went well. So, it's good in terms of meeting people you wouldn't meet otherwise, but I think it's detrimental in terms of always looking for greener grass.....greener grass is usually greener because it has a lot of manure anyway......and will require more maintenance.
