Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
About me and who I am looking for:
I'm a Firefighter/RN, Have Tattoos, Drive a truck 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,
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
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
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
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.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you think we’d have a good time talking over drinks or food and
you don’t often get into bar fights, that would be great. The
occasional one is fine, though .Short of that, if you want to, just
do it. Life is too short to wonder “what if".
