Hey everybody, I'm Taylor and here's the low down on me and what I'm looking for. I'm kind of introvert at times, especially around a pretty girl but I'm working on that a little bit at a time. When I do open up to you, however, I am fun loving and can keep you laughing all day. I have a hard time making people laugh through online messages so please don't expect a really funny one if I say hello lol. I'm affectionate and loving, understanding and supportive, loyal and honest, trusting and empathetic. I'm protective of the person I care about and will take care of them, but I make it very clear it's not an entitlement, I HATE having to feel like I HAVE to take care of someone. We're all adults here, lets take care of our business and add to each others' life instead of leeching off of each other. I'm not the jealous type either, but as I said...we're adults, if there's something that I wouldn't like if done to me, I don't do it to my significant other...golden rule, get with it.
I like confidence but hate women that are too full of themselves. Lets be honest, no matter how hot you are, there are a at least a handful that are hotter. While physical attraction is big for me, it's not all I look for. I'm in shape (not a bodybuilder or a model by far) and I prefer my girl to be in shape and have the same attitude about keeping it that way. I'm not really looking for that supermodel or beauty pageant queen, just someone who takes care of themselves and realizes that perception and first impressions are everything regardless of how we feel about it. As for personality traits, I need someone humble, courageous, supportive, strong willed but flexible, funny, open, spontaneous, funny, fun to be around, and mature when they need to be. I've had a lot of first dates and it's hard to find all of those traits in someone, but I've learned that patience is very important, so I'm in no rush.
I love road trips and spur of the moment day trips all the way to a dinner and movie date at the theatre or at my place, maybe yours. Hiking, swimming, fishing, a little off- roading, and driving around with the windows down and the radio up are also a few of my favorites. I love coffee in the winter time and bonfires in the fall. Summer is filled with beer and sunburns and the spring is when I do most of my driving around enjoying the weather. I'm not great at dancing but don't mind learning again, but I'm not really into the bar scene anymore so once in awhile is more than enough for me. I like zoos and theme parks, bus tours and boat rides. I guess in a nutshell I'm down for anything as long as the person I'm with is having fun too.
I'm in the military, been doing it for six years and can see the light at the end of the tunnel but things aren't guaranteed so you would need to be aware of what comes with chatting with someone in the service. As for now I'll be staying where I'm at so there's the stability that most women need in their relationships but I do have weird hours sometimes and have to do things most people don't. I don't play games, I get down to business. If I get a good vibe from the first date, I'll ask you out again. If I like you after that, you'll know. I will hold your hand when crossing the street or if we're somewhere real busy, I'll walk on the road side of the sidewalk so you're safer, I'll put my hand on the small of your back and guide you through a crowd and I'll open your door for you. Some girls will take those gestures as being clingy or too forward, some will appreciate it them. Just because those things happen you don't have to over analyze their meaning. Take it as me being a gentleman and roll with it lol.
Finally, what I'm looking for on here. End game is a serious relationship. I realize that won't happen overnight so I'm looking for someone that wants to meet new people and have fun. Enjoying each others company is my priority and I think that if we make that our goal everything else will fall into place, whether that be a relationship of a friendship. Let me reiterate, I'm not here for games so if your plan is to go out with someone to get free dinner and occupy your time when you have nothing else to do, you should probably find someone a lot dumber than me.
Oh, and I'm kind of sarcastic and talk a lot of smack sometimes. I'm working on that and trying to be more family friendly with my humor...but it's a work in progress so bare with me.
