Who am I? I’m John Cusack in nearly all his movies. Just in real life.
I'm a good man, with a big heart. I'm generous, maybe to a fault, kind, and honest. I'm also pretty smart, and can hold up my end of any conversation. I'm deeply spiritual, but not very religious. And if you need to classify me in terms of my politics, I'm pretty libertarian on social stuff, and clear headed on economics. I believe in a social safety net. My staunch Conservative friends, like me a lot, as do my bleeding heart liberal friends. Why? Because I believe in fairplay.
What am I looking for? I think all I want is a best friend, who makes me laugh, and who I find attractive, sexy – in her mind, in her heart, in her soul….and yeah, physically sexy to me too.
I’m not perfect, but I know my ‘attractiveness weight class’ so I’m not going to box outside of it…but I’m also not arrogant, or even egotistical. I’ve found that making friends is easier if you can keep them after you make them.
I know on many levels it’s a man’s world. And I understand that women get the short end of the proverbial stick all the time. So I empathize with that too. I guess I’m pretty protective about my ‘woman’ and my ‘kids’…and if you have kids…I would be protective with yours too. I don’t jump to assumptions or conclusions, and I’m patient, so if you are worried that I’m a rule the roost kind of guy, have no worries…I believe in organically growing a relationship. That means no additives or preservatives. :)
Why did I message you? If you aren’t initiating the contact, and I did, the reason is simple. I think we might hit it off. We could be friends. I think you are attractive. That is all. It’s not really a big thing to be a gentleman. I’m glad, at least for increasing the chances that I will find the most awesome of a partner…that not so many men don't even know what a gentleman is.
So, I've been at this awhile. I'm not tired of it, nor am I unhappy that finding a good friend, a woman that we have mutual chemistry, or that so many things are left to the pictures. But, I should tell you that, I believe in friends first. I believe in (and practice) honor and integrity, and I practice it. I work hard. And I adore the people in my life. I think that if you think what was written here is nice enough, and the pictures don't frighten you, give the universe/serendipity a chance. Let's just meet. No, you won't have to worry about anything. Just like when we were kids, I'm nice, kind and generous...and funny too. A cup of coffee, a simple exchange of getting to know each other...and let nature do the rest. Or make another connection in Asheville. I've helped a few folks find jobs, simply because I had a coffee date with someone. It didn't turn out romantically, and all we ever did was have coffee. But the whole "I'm going to meet the one true love forever" thing, can really build a pile of expectations that can only disappoint, when one of us just turns out to be...well, a human being, and not a fantasy.
To summarize, I'm a really good guy, with a great sense of humor, who loves to go out into the woods, or stay home and enjoy those comforts as well.
