I find it easier to let your dislikes be known rather than your interests. So here goes.
People who don't know their homonyms.
Messages consisting of hey or how are you.
Chatting with no intention of eventually meeting.
Asking me to describe myself.
Disproportionate ink to skin ratio.
Gauges in the ears.
Talking about your personal problems before I know your last name.
Trying to be "Indy".

Im trying to become more accepting of peoples' differences. So disregard the comments about gauges and tattoos. Many of you look absolutely fabulous with either or both. Ive realized my summary is a little sparse in detail, so feel free to ask about me, but try to have a specific question if possible. But my rule about the "hey" message still stands. It just leads to the eventual "how are you" small talk that, in person, would be great. Online, its dreadful. So try to at least be a little bit creative. Somewhere in my profile I believe it says Im not sure if Im ready for children of my own. Let me clarify. Ive dated women with children and I love spending time with kids. One of my favorite things to do is go out as a family to the park or zoo and just have a blast. The one thing that scares me about starting a family of my own is the fear of the relationship failing. I dont ever want my children to be a product of divorce. I know many are and it isnt the worst thing ever, but Im just old fashioned like that. My number one requirement is that you are honest and direct about who you are, what you stand for, and what you want from a relationship. Im very up front about who I am, I expect the same honesty from everyone I meet.
Ill add more later. Thank you

There's more but I think that's enough for now. The most important thing to know about me is this: I need actual human interaction to stay interested. So if you're looking for an online buddy that's fine. But I'll lose interest in a few days. Just ask a few questions and if you get a good vibe from me, ask me out. You have my word that I'm a gentleman and a genuinely nice guy.
Fyi I almost never initiate contact. I realize there's probably dozens of guys sending every woman (notice I said woman, not female ...another thing I hate. Female sounds so cold and impersonal) several messages every day. I figure the last thing you want is another guy trying to talk to you. So if you're interested feel free to send me a message.
