Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am, above all else, honest and loyal to a fault. I do not play
games, I know what I want even if I don't always know how to say
it. I have a strong vocabulary, and as a severely hopeless
romantic, I know how to put that vocabulary to verse [although,
admittedly, it usually one stanza at a time]. Let it be said now,
however, if I spin my words and feelings into verse, they are
honest and true. I do not use my talents for ill gain. I know that
at my age, I will likely not find love at first sight, but that's
ok, because I have learned that that kind of love is often fleeting
and true love, real love, often grows with time. So here I am.
Looking for someone I can care for deeply, with whom that caring
can grow into a beautiful love. I do not expect this overnight. One
thing I will state here, I smoke. I will not try to change you, do
not try to change me. If I chose to quit-it will be because I am
ready to-no other reason. Also, I am pagan, but I am not the "in
your face" kind, I keep my faith and practices to myself, if you
are of another faith than mine I expect the same courtesy. I am
open to discussing faiths, but not as a means of conversion,
instead out of a mutual respect for it.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am a retired Army veteran, so I don't work. I spend my time with
various art forms [Photography, Pen and Ink, occasional poetic
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
i am an artist of many mediums [though I do mostly stick with
photography and pen & Ink drawing]. I have also been told I
give a decent foot and shoulder rub. Also I am an excellent cook
[and I do not like to share the kitchen]. Fluent in Sarcasm. I do
have to say, I don't like showing my art before it is finished, but
I am always pleased to show anyone interested my finished work.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Honestly, It used to be the dimples and the blue eyes, but lets
face it, these days it is usually the tracheostomy. But I do not
get upset with people when they notice/ask about the trach, it's
only natural for people to be curious. I am not ashamed of the
trach, It isn't from smoking, just from a medical procedure that
saved my life. It has in the last year and a half become a part of
me. And to be a little crass [which I can be when it's uncalled for
lol] It does have its uses [ladies ;) lol j/k, but not really].
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Terry Pratchett's Discworld, The Outsiders
Movies: Any comic book based movie, The Boondock Saints, The
Notebook, The Outsiders
Shows: Walking Dead, Supernatural, Dexter, Smallville
Music: Everything [nearly literally, as I have a music collection
of nearly 10,000 songs] but 2NE1 is my FAVORITE
Food: I love food in general-I love to cook, and will cook nearly
anything. More so, I love to have someone to cook FOR. Fair warning
though, I am horrible when it comes to sharing the kitchen, so if
you want a man that will keep you from having to set foot in it,
look no further lol.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Zombie Apocalypse, random weird things, a lot of things I don't
really know how to categorize, but if you are around me you will
know what they are as I tend to share lol. I blame sleep
deprivation coupled with functional insanity.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Alternate weekends, I am probably spending it with my oldest
daughter watching movies or playing PS2 with her. The weekends I
don't have her, I am probably sitting at home doing about the same
thing. I have a pretty open schedule being retired lol.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Anything really. I don't have secrets-I have no word filter, so
whatever I think I tend to say.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Any questions, queries, quandaries, or quagmires, feel free to
message me. If your interest is piqued, message me. If you have
need for conversation, message me. Also, I'm not looking to make
friends-I have friends. I am looking not for everything, but for
someone that can be everything to me. I often get cast in the
friend-zone, and I'm kind of tired of it, I want to meet someone
that isn't instantly looking to put me there. I have a big heart
and can offer a lot emotionally, I just want the chance.
Who are you looking for?
This helps us know who to show you on OkCupid.
