Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
"Love many, trust few, and always paddle your own canoe."
I'm paddling my own canoe, and have been for quite some time.
However, I've reached the point in my life where I'd like to take a
relationship as far as I can go, rather than stay in the ambivalent
stage as I did when I was younger.
I've had many experiences in my life so far, both good and bad.
Drama, if you will. It's not that we have drama in our lives. We
all do, or have, without exception. It's how we deal with it, and
whether we allow it to affect our current and future relationships.
If you hold on to the past with one hand and the future with the
other, you'll be ripped apart.
I view this system with cautious scepticism. I have had an
unpleasant experience on a competing site, purportedly the largest
dating website on the planet, in which I discovered that a number
of the subscribers were bogus. That being said, I'm looking for
someone who's real. Both philosophically and literally.
I believe honesty is the best policy. Honesty builds trust, and
trust is absolutely essential in a romantic relationship. Without
trust, love will wither and die.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
After a seven-year adventure in Georgia (sort of like the
"three-hour cruise" which lasted a bit longer), I moved back to
Houston in August 2010. Although I was born in Kansas, I've lived
in Houston most of my life and consider it home. There's no place
Over the course of the past two years, I've changed my residence
and I've changed my employer. I no longer live in Midtown and I now
work for "The Man."
One of my old school friends, now a teacher, asked what Georgia was
like. I asked her, "Have you ever seen Deliverance?" She replied,
"No, is it an educational film?" Yes...I think you could say so.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
"Take what you need, and leave the rest. " That's been my
philosophy. I've done many things and had many adventures in
my life so far. Although some of these were misadventures, I've
found they were learning experiences.
Some wise person once said that experience is the unique ability to
recognize a mistake when we make it again. Although I've not made
any life-changing transgressions that resulted in a criminal
record, I'm not perfect and have never claimed to be, but I've
tried to learn from the curve balls and fouls that Life has
pitched, and am a better man because of it.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
This is a trick question, isn't it?
1. Air to breathe
2. Food to eat
3. Water to drink
4. Clothes to wear
5. Shelter to keep me warm in winter, cool in summer
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Why I receive dozens of notifications each week that women "like"
me, yet I never hear from them. If you like me, write to me. Let me
know. I realize this is the Twenty-First Century, and we live in an
"instant" society: instant oil changes, instant credit, instant
breakfast, instant divorce. However, the things truly worthwhile in
life are those things that are earned though hard work. Those
things that come too easily, we never fully appreciate.
That being said (or written), I am seeking a woman who can
communicate. Who can write to me, and respond to my thoughts. Who
is willing to share her hopes, dreams and goals, and is genuinely
interested in what I have to say. But it all starts with a letter,
and this is something foreign and unachievable to the vast majority
Communication isn't the problem to the answer.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You feel that we connect on some level, or even if we disconnect.
There are no guarantees in life regarding whether one is entitled
to happiness. Now, I'm not saying life is a gamble. In a casino,
the House always wins and the Player always loses. That's the way
the system is designed. However, in life, there are things that we
can do to stack the odds in our favor, however slightly that may
Now, what is the secret to happiness in relationships? You'll have
to write to me and ask, because telling you at this point in our
potential relationship would remove all incentive. Do you think
King Arthur opened the door and there was the Holy Grail? No, of
course not. He had to assemble his knights, go on a quest, and clap
empty coconut shells together.
