(Her) Funny, cute, (but not self absorbed) smart, adventurous, introspective, out-going, gregarious, loves board games, (Cribbage, Scrabble..etc) plays tennis would be awesome, but not a deal breaker if not.
Be Passionate about something, anything..(I'm free..:-) but seriously, passion=drive..and I find that very attractive..(also not a deal breaker, but will result in a massive loss of cool points!:-)
Confidence and Ambition, however, are a must. Not being content with your current situation isn't a bad thing..and I will certainly support you with any and all endeavors you choose to pursue.
With that being said, not having a picture of yourself is kind of lacking in the "confidence" department, (conversely, too many pictures, ie, 20 ..get over yourself! :-) We're all taking a risk of rejection by exposing ourselves, and we, (those with pics) expect the same from you, so, no pic, no way. Now, if you're the type of lady that could have fun in a room full of praying Tibetan Monks, we may be a match!
(Me) I have two children, Wes (24) and Meghan, "Nut Meg,"(12), whom I absolutely adore..they're on the East Coast, and I don't see them as much as I would like, but that's changing!
I retired from the military January 2011, and I currently work in the R&D division of an aerospace corp, and I must say, I absolutely love it! I really lucked out finding a great job doing something I love to do!
I Love just about all sports, (cricket, not so much) and I play tennis, Vball, and Bball above average, and every chance I get..working out is a must..I usually do it alone, but would consider doing it with a partner..maybe..:-)
I don't really care about your profession, just as long as you enjoy doing it. (unless you're in the "oldest profession," then there may be some 'splain'n do Lucy!:-) I find that people who are miserable in their occupations are usually miserable in general; so no joy sponges!!! I believe that no one is responsible for your happiness, that's your job; but they shouldn't take your joy away, either..and there exists among us a faction of "people" that are talented at doing just that! (You know who you are, and I can spot you a mile away! Stay clear!)
I'm comfortable cuddling around like cats in front of a good movie or a fireplace, or up and out for the weekend. I sync up well with good cooks because I'm an epicurean at heart; I love to try new things.(The jury's still out on Eggplant parm..) Wine (cabs especially) is my Achilles heel; grapes make me happy! (I dabble a little, myself..I make a mean chicken pesto tortellini!:-)
I was recently told, "You're the funniest person I know.." which I take as a compliment, but I was really just being myself..
I have a very eclectic palette when it comes to music: Christian Contemporary to alternative, to RB..you name it. If I like the beat, or it moves me in some way, it's on the Ipod.
I love to write, (sorry, no poetry) and it's something I've always been passionate about-so, if you catch me spacing out, I'm probably brain-storming..(or really spacing out..a good whack usually brings me back!:-)
Simply put, I'm a no pressure, *virtually drama free type of guy, looking for someone with common interests to have some fun with, then take it from there. (Having an ex, by default, equals drama; but mine is minimal, and 5k miles away! Insert snoopy dance here!)
*If anyone ever tells you they're "drama free," they're lying; Run. Fast. Far.
So, if you feel we have enough interests in common, send me a message! Conversely, if I see that you have viewed my profile and didn't at least say "hi," I will assume that you were not interested..and since I don't possess a "stalker gene," move along also.:-)
