My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I need to preface with this. There are 4 things that need to be said.
1. There is a question among the thousands they ask here which is a MUST answer for ANYONE who wants to connect with me. "Would you strongly prefer to go out with someone of your own skin color / racial background? IF YOU ANSWER YES, DON'T BOTHER WRITING TO ME. I've inter-racially dated since the age of 6. No need stopping now.
2.
I am SERIOUS about getting to know someONE special. I'm NOT HERE to collect "TROPHIES"
Even if its just to say good morning or hi or have a nice day, I am wary of women who say in text, they'd like to talk, and when given the number TWICE, never use it. I will ALWAYS offer my phone number, so that you don't have to feel awkward about "making the 1st move." (If in fact there IS still such a phobia in the 21st Century.) and another thing. if I give you my phone number and you text me you must be willing to identify yourself with your first text I just experienced a "sistagurl" from OKC who actually got a attitude (which is in large. part, why i date interracially) because I didnt know who they were, did not know what their phone number was and they would not identify themselves
3.
I keep running across these great matches with beautiful personalities, high percentages and everything you want in a person AND THEY'RE SEEING SOMEONE!!!
WHY ARE THEY STILL ON A DATING SITE???
When I meet someone from OKC, I give them the courtesy of at least taking myself off the site to see what develops with them UNTIL there is a clear disconnect. AM I A WEIRDO FOR DOING THAT??? IS MONOGAMY NO LONGER POLITICALLY CORRECT IN THE 21ST CENTURY??? If you and I click, can I expect the courtesy of you telling me you want to stay on a date site "just in case"??? Answer that question to yourself BEFORE you approach me. I am looking to be a PRIORITY, not an OPTION.
4.
I am a Christian, but I have found certain people on here who TALK THE TALK do not LIVE the way they PROFESS to, so if you sound like a fanatic and don't ACT like you know Him, you would to well NOT to address me. Attempts have been made to gut me like a fish by some of the smoothest talkers, but we shall know you by your fruits, and I have become an EXCELLENT judge of BS artistry on this site.

Now, back to our regularly scheduled profile:
BM, 5-11 teddy bear, medium brown bedroom eyes, no kids, I am about positivity and not looking back. I am smoke/drug/disease/drama free, I have always put my partner's best interests/desires ahead of my own, almost to a fault. I am STILL a spontaneous, optimistic soul--always rooting for the underdog. I'm an incurable romantic, like a good chick flick/romantic comedy, am loyal, strong character with integrity, I'm walking again (and dancing again),. I work out at the YMCA, so I plan on being in the water a lot and also doing a lot of walking.
I'm a transplant from Philly, still believing the Eagles, Flyers, and. 76ers will make me proud again before I die.

I read a lot of profiles on here from women who say "they want a sensitive, affectionate, caring, compassionate gentleman who still believes in holding doors and helping with chairs." WHERE ARE THEY? I'VE BEEN HERE ALL ALONG!!! I've seen the women here complain about Africans scamming, and trust me, I KNOW they are on here. But I have ALSO seen my share of FEMALE gold-diggers and catfishers on here, and have fallen prey more than once, because I have a trusting heart, SO WORDS TO THE WISE FOR BOTH GENDERS... CAVEAT EMPTOR!!! ("Buyer, beware!")

I STILL BELIEVE in the power of love. I STILL BELIEVE that basically humans are good. How else will I be able to be totally blown away when THE ONE comes along???

I've been a home-based travel agent for 15 years. Seems like with all the crazy winter weather we've survived, EVERYONE has an itch to travel now that we're thawed out!!! Hey, no complaints! Success professionally juices my confidence socially.

Recently, I've also taken on a 2nd job, working overnites, so YES, my personal/private time is at a premium, and I DON'T want to waste it on someone if they are NOT serious.

I'm also a work in progress, never afraid to try new things, and never too proud to learn.. I consider myself a good cook. I think cooking TOGETHER is one of the most romantic things to do. Also grocery shopping together can be a hoot. Love freshwater fishing, but now it's just for fun (& occasionally, dinner).

Never had any biological kids, but as a former youth minister, became a kid magnet, and don't think I lost my skills yet. My ex is raising her foster grandson, and since I was the only positive male role model he was exposed to for the years we were together, he has, by his choice, been referring to me as "Daddy" and I don't stop him and neither does she. We talk every week via Skype, and he's now 10, playing the saxophone and has quite a green thumb! I AM committed to helping w/his college education.

I'm now able to enjoy a good theater, an ample supply of movie theaters, museums, restaurants and pubs. I try to get out to do Trivia nites 2 or 3 times a week, and do OK. I have been on "The Weakest Link" and was the last one off.

At this point in my life, I am about riding the brahma for MORE than 8 seconds and getting everything I can from the experience. (Translation: I say what I mean and mean what I say!)

I have come back on here after taking myself off voluntarily and I have seen the light as far as making CLEAR WHAT I WANT. NOT JUST HOPING TO FIT SOMEONE'S MOLD. I have decided to look for someone who can go 50-50 into making a relationship work, not 60-40, not the chivalrous (and stupid) 90-10, acquiescing in just about every discussion for the sake of keeping the peace.

MY IDEAL GOAL IS TO FIND THE "ONE" SETTLE DOWN AND GET OFF THIS SITE! SHOULDN'T THAT BE EVERYONE'S GOAL??
Will it be YOU? Noon

Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. my faith.....it keeps me grounded
2. fishing....it keeps me sane
3. moderate weather.......it keeps me active
4. internet.......it keeps me enlightened, entertained, & employed!
5. my ability to envision.....it keeps me hopeful
6. my family
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
what's the NEXT thing on my bucket list that should be crossed off
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Doing Netflix, at a local pub playing trivia as a 1-person team, or working 2nd job.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
As confident as I am professionally, I am still somewhat shy meeting people socially cold turkey. That's why I use online services. I get to get a feel for a person first, and that makes meeting them in person a lot smoother.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
*You are Christian or Jewish

*You have TIME to focus on nurturing a relationship. I am through with being someone's OPTION, rather than a PRIORITY

*You are a voter

*Your other side likes grocery shopping together, flea markets, amusement parks, museums, & movies (romantic comedies preferred) & doesn't mind seeing them over again if they like them.

*You are someone who likes fishing or can at least tolerate ME liking to fish

*You are someone sensitive who can appreciate my sensitivity.

*You are Smoke/Drug/Disease/Drama free as I am

*You are someone who likes taking walks in the park, NOT ashamed of PDA's (public displays of affection) and have a playful side (making snow angels, snowball fights, hose-spraying when washing the car, etc.,) and yet serious when it's appropriate.
