I own my own business which is in the construction industry. My hands aren't calloused. However, my boots are dusty.
Not your typical contractor - My work vehicle is a Prius not a pickup. I don't eat off construction lunch wagons, I prefer Whole Foods brown rice sushi, fresh fruit and a Kombucha. (I think I have visited every Whole Foods in the Southland.) I don't sneak off early a couple of afternoons a month to go to a sports bar. I prefer sneaking off to check out the hottest independent film at the Archlight or Landmark. Finally, I clean up well. At 6' tall, 191 lbs and body-fat below 10% and evening on the town with me in my nice tailored suit would be a blast.
I am into fitness, but not to the extreme. Being fit means that I am not looking for a future care giver, instead I am seeking a caring woman to share my life with.
For me a simple no frills no pressure date resembles the following. Find the most obscure independent film (but highly rated by Rotten Tomatoes / users), watch and discuss over Sushi with Dry Saki or beer.
My online dating basic rant. It's just not that serious. Just listen. Listen to the summary and other verbiage. Listen to the photos. Yep, I did mean listen. Listen to the initial contact. If you sit quietly with all of that for a moment you will know. It will speak to you and you will know. Best of Luck and thanks for Listening.
