Lived on my own since the day I moved out, never have had a single roommate. I have never relied on anyone for anything. Incredibly self reliant. I have held a job pretty much non stop since I was 13 years old with a paper route. I have rented the same house in Joliet for about 4 years now. Live with my German Shepherd mix, Lexi and the newest addition, 6 month old pit named Indica. Both are incredible dogs and I love them to death. Could never live without a dog. Have had dogs ever since I was 2 years old. I have now had 3 of my own that I have raised. German Shepherds have always been my favorites. I am a huge animal lover, always have been. Never have hunted, never would. Not my cup a tea. I could never and would never do that. Id prob starve before I killed something lol.
I do everything myself. Like I said, I have lived on my own ever since I moved out 12 years ago or so.
I work a full time job, I make dinner and lunch. I clean the whole house. I walk and take care of two dogs. I cut the grass and do yardwork. I grocery shop. I run errands and other shopping. I pay the bills. I have a side job at home that demands alot of time. I do laundry. I do dishes (no dishwasher, or maid for that matter lol). And I do all the other countless, mind numbing tasks at home that I cant think of right now lol.
I am highly respectful of women. I was raised by my Mom, who passed when I was 18, my Aunt, and my Grandmother. I was raised right. I have manners as well and try to prove that chivalry does exist.
I am highly romantic if its brought out of me.
I am a conversationalist. The way to my heart is through my brain. Highly attracted to intelligence. Conversation and intelligence is right at the top of the list.
I am very easy going, easy to please.
Live and die by my heart and will never change that.
I am a Cancer. You couldnt find someone who fits the sign any better. You really want to know everything about me. Look up Cancer male. Its me to a t.
I like peaceful nights at home just as much as I like going out and doing things.
Love concerts, being outdoors, movies, going out to eat, going into the city for a late night drive. Late night drives anywhere. Zoos, Great America, Shedd. Endless list of interests.
I am the most open, honest, and least judgemental person you will ever meet. You can ask me anything and I will tell you the truth. I am too old to lie or play games. I dont give a crap about your past. I only care how you are with me and towards me.
I am a good listener. I love to listen. And I am good at giving advice. I have been through alot in life and always pick myself up and make the best of things.
I am hoping to move soon. Honestly. I have been here all my life and want a change, horribly. I would like to end up in Florida, where I have family, but am open to manyyyy places.
My views on dating are you talk and see if theres a connection, you meet and see if thats still there. If its not, its not. No big deal. Worse case you get a good friend out of it, which I have in the past. There is no need for hard feelings, I wont stalk you lol. Dating is just that. Seeing whats out there. You never know unless you try.
I can care less about age. Not a flying fuck. I get to know the person. I date women of all ages. I admittedly like and get along with younger women better. Have more in common with them as well. Take it as it is. Again, if you dont like older dudes, thats fine. I am just being open and honest.
Age is hardly a barometer for maturity. Its just not. Life lessons and how you deal with them are.
Anyways, I am a chameleon. I can adapt to any situation and have fun, find common ground, and have intelligent conversations with all ages...providing that person is capable as well.
Increeedibly 420 friendly. As if it weren't obvious enough from my user name. :)
Rarely, if ever, drink. I will if there is a reason to. Not against dating anyone who does, or booze in general, just not my thing. Enjoy smoking soooo much more.
About the douchey, self shot, shirtless, in the mirror pics lol. I avoided doing it for the longest time.
For those who do complain...I have tattoos, that are all covered by a shirt. There are alot of people who are attracted to tattoos. I am myself. You dont like it...oh well. I would hope my j and who I am would give you a better idea about someone than a picture. Since I am an older dude and do like younger women I like to show that I am no slouch for my age. I do keep myself in pretty good shape. I prefer someone who does the same.
