I'm a Firefighter/RN, Have Tattoos, Drive a truck,Target Shoot and listen to country music what else needs to be said!
My ideal relationship isn’t one of wild extremes (arctic mountain climbing or bombastic breaking up and making up). For me, and I hope for you, it would more than suffice to share our thoughts, our triumphs, our failures (may they be few) and a fun, meaningful, lasting love.
Why You Might Enjoy Having Me on Your Arm
People say that I’m cooler than the other side of the pillow, and with 25 years working in firefighting and healthcare I guess I can handle myself in a good number of situations. However, if we hit it off I don’t expect any evening news-type experiences unless it’s something like: “Breaking News: Couple spends summer evenings watching sunsets on boat while drinking wine. Will they ever stopping smiling?”
My hobbies include: boating on summer days, appreciating excellent food (from German to Japanese), babysitting when needed, autumn festivals and apple picking, on and on. I also love setting out on the road to explore historical sites. My top 2-5: Gettysburg, Maine, Vermont and New Hampshire. Guess #1 and you can pick the first date restaurant.
How This Might Become Our Best Relationship Ever
Partnerships don’t get far without equality so I only ask for what I offer: a nonjudgmental heart, a commitment to positive and open communication, personal and fiscal responsibility (no need to be a Rockefeller), and a willingness to try almost anything twice. I want us to always feel that we can be ourselves around each other and that we will be all the more loved for it. Of course, we’ll only have eyes for each other - a fact we’ll communicate verbally, physically and often. Laughing is essential. Perfection is impossible.
Charmed? Mildly Intrigued? Bewildered?
They’re all very good reasons to write.
My perception of an ideal relationship:
Complete and utter comfort. Can be myself around you without feeling judged. You can sit in your room working while I watch a classic movie and I'm entirely content. I only have eyes for you, you only have eyes for me and we communicate this verbally, physically and often. Fights are rare and when we do get into it, we don't stop talking until we've reached some sort of peace. Unparalleled companionship, unprecedented generosity and unconditional love grant us the foundation for a lasting long-term relationship.
What I've learned from past relationships:
Communication is paramount. Flossing is important. Laughing is essential. Perfection is impossible. It's better to be single than to be in a bad relationship. If it's worth it, I'll work for it, If it's not worth it, I wont waste my time. Don't say anything you'll regret because you can't take it back, words really do hurt! Finally, you must expose yourself emotionally -- it's the only way to reap love's greatest rewards.
