Most people seem to feel that I'm pretty intelligent (I'm a Mensan) - though I think intelligence can take many forms and many of them don't show up on standardized tests. Certainly I consider intelligence to be a large factor myself in any lady that I would consider as a life partner, although she wouldn't have to be that much above average and she could be a lot smarter than I am. I just want to be with someone who will "get it" when we talk, have her own views and opinions and that 'spels rite'. If you prefer to use text messaging speak, please look elsewhere.
I also take dancing (for fun) very seriously and any lady that would want to be with me would have to enjoy it as well. I don't care how good you are (or aren't). Just that you love to dance. If you've never danced I'd be happy to show you some basic steps, enough for you to be comfortable on the dance floor. It'd be my pleasure. I don't dance to show off or prove how good I (or we) am/are. I dance for the pure enjoyment and exercise it represents.
There are a number of qualities that I value in others and work to cultivate in myself. In that list you'll find loyalty and faithfulness (I truly have never cheated on anyone in my entire life and will never start), a good sense of humor, playfulness, kindness (not just towards each other, but to everyone), patience, and the desire to always think young and continue enjoying life and living it to the fullest.
If the main thing you're looking for is someone to rock on the front porch with, please go elsewhere. I'll do that with you either after we're exhausted from pursuing fun together or when I'm too old to do anything else, but it's not something I'm looking for now.
Don't consider me a match if you like to play games because I won't. I'll always be honest with you and forthright even when it's not easy and I'd appreciate it if you'd do the same. Same with honesty and trust. You'll find me honest even when it's not easy and that will tell you that I'm trustworthy. Please do the same.
I'm not in this just to find a bed partner. That's something that can wait until the time is right for both of us and you won't find me pressuring you about it. If you like what you find here we can get to know each other in a comfortable way and at a pace that's comfortable to you. Likewise, if we give it a try and find that we won't be a couple we can remain friends or just move on with no hard feelings. I'm not attracted to everyone out there and I don't expect everyone to be attracted to me. There are 'plenty of fish' in the sea.
Most ladies don't fall for me the first time that they meet me. But most ladies seem to really like me once we've gotten to know each other. It'd be nice to attract women like Brad Pitt, but between the two choices I have to admit that I'd rather that anyone who loves me does so as a result of really getting to know me rather than some surface attraction. So if what you need is an adrenalin hit on a first meeting I'm probably not your guy. But if you want someone to love that will really love you back and continue to do so you'll find it here if we click together.
I'm rather old fashioned and romantic at heart. I like to open doors for ladies, buy them flowers,
do special little things for them, call them during the day, and pay for the dates. Chances are that's not going to change, so I hope you like that. It's not that I don't consider ladies to be equals, I do. I just like to pamper them and don't see anything wrong with that.
Don't let this description fool you, though. I'm not all that serious in real life. In many ways I consider life a joke that God is playing on us and I find a lot of humor in the absurdity that is day to day existence. If we can't laugh with each other about this curious life and our own foibles then we're going to be Sad Sacks indeed. I love to joke and cut up and I hope you do as well.
If you've read this far and still have interest, then by all means contact me. I'm not so old-fashioned that I don't appreciate it when a lady makes the first (or any) move. Somebody has to start something or we'll never get to know each other. If I haven't contacted you on my own then don't hesitate to take the initiative.
Just took a test that says I'm an ENFP.
