Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
To start off, and I don't like saying this, but I've messaged several people on these and their comment always seems to be similar… that they get flooded with messages and that they only want "one thing". Well, for one, if some of you women would actually post more complete and higher-resolution pictures of the REST of yourself instead of simply a number of blurry face shots that purposefully give a false illusion of what you look like, that would DEFINITELY cut down on your message traffic! lol… Not to say that those guys aren't creeps, because they ARE creeps, but you know what I mean. Stop the fraudulent pictures! If you post honest pictures of your entire selves, then just delete the scummy messages as if they were typical junk mail in your mail box. It's not that big a deal. And gosh sakes, DON'T reply to them! It probably only provokes those twits! And to add, those "non-informative" landscape pictures so many women like to post… with no evidence of a human subject, who doesn't like to see useless information like that? 8-/ Posting stuff like that on a singles' site is about as useless as writing an exposé about the contents of your glove compartment in the newspaper. Why? What kind of response did you expect from that? lol… And hey, it's not like my full pictures of me do me any favors for posting them, except that they do give the other person the common courtesy of being allowed to know what the OTHER 90% of me looks like. It's only fair. And I've heard some say they want to get to know someone first, because that's what's more important. Well great and all, but when you are introduced in person to a friend of a friend, do you refrain from stating your name because you'd like to "get to know them first"? Of course not. lol… And if you do, you have issues. lol… And heck, I don't want someone to find that they feel some attraction to my head shots and then bolt when they see my slender 6'1" 175 lb. frame in person. That does me no favors. So I posted those pictures. Anyways, I had to state all that and had to give my personal opinion on all of these profiles and their, sometimes, bizarre choice of pictures. Also this… I am NOT on here for a "one-niter", a "hook-up", or anything of the sort. Anyone who knows me would know this. Apparently, a lot of women get solicited for that reason on here, so I want to just make this clear about myself immediately… I don't do that.

Anyway, sorry to get off on the superficial junk, but you know what I'm talking about. Let's just start off by being honest with each other, shall we? And then we can see where things go. And to add, I'd darn near meet anyone right away for a 30 minute chat over coffee or whatnot, who I thought was sorta cute and who lives relatively close and doesn't seem to have any major red flags. However, I know women have a lot more to be concerned about, so I understand their hesitation about doing something like that too quickly. I'm just saying I would when asked and enough is there.

I also don't have some weird, demented past that I'd have to explain to you one day. I've walked the straight and narrow my whole life and I have a clean track record. I'm a conservative (I prefer the term "constitutionalist"), Christian (brought up in Christian schools), and I smoke cigarettes. I'm not proud of the smoking part, but that's about as "hard-core" as I get. I welcome quitting smoking one day and switching to those vape things or whatever they're called, but I won't quit smoking simply in order to have the opportunity to date a particular person. I welcome, however, a woman coming along who'd like to "reform" me and my smoking habit if they were interested enough in everything else about me, though! I wouldn't mind that one bit!

And for a potential match that may live more than an hour away, I'm not opposed to exploring a possible serious relationship with you either! But I just know that the further the distance is, the more immediate the physical attraction and peripheral interest must be at the onset. That almost requires a video chat or FaceTime chat beforehand (CLEAN!!) to see if it's worth the initial two hour distance to pursue. I say "two hours", because in all actuality, anything much further away than that is really not very rational, even as much as we might hit it off.

Sorry for my lengthy book report here. lol… To add, with anyone I might write, meet or so on, if I start sensing a lack interest or responsiveness from them, I back off. I don't chase and I'm an easy person to get rid of if you have lost interest or have none. Just sayin' if you actually ARE interested in me, reveal it in some way… flirt… do SOMETHING at least and let me have signs. You don't have to be overly forward simply to give off clues. We all try to pick up on clues and I'm no exception. The quickest way to attract someone is to subtly let them know you're attracted to who they are, and the quickest way to repel someone (including me) is to make any attraction you might have, ambiguous or show no interest at all. That loses me quickly and I properly flee out of respect. Anyway, I welcome any woman with interest in what they've read about me to write me right away! :-) And I'm curious. Do women actually have anything to ADD to conversations on here? It's quite hard to start a conversation on here when the only thing a woman says in reply to a message is, "That's true", or "yep", etc,… Believe me, I take that as if you are not really interested when you have nothing more to add than what anyone might say to a piece of furniture or an inanimate object. Just sayin'. ;-)
