I'm direct in what I say, if I say something about myself, it’s the truth. It’s difficult enough remembering what I say to whom without having to additionally compound that by telling half truths or lies. I don’t dish out BS and in return don’t accept it. I know, both of equal importance, who I am and who/what I am looking for in a partner. I am successful in what ventures I have undertaken in the past, in what I am currently doing in my life and am confident that I will succeed in my venture that I plan on undertaking in my retirement (no I am not someone that can sit around idly waiting for time to pass, being productive, having something to occupy my hands and challenge my mind is of extreme importance to me) and on that note, any potential match must view life along the same principals.
I enjoy high activity sports, more so if they revolve around water or wilderness, having never lived in a country that has enough snow to try snow sports, I don’t know what my stance would be on that, I do however feel that screaming down a mountainside attached to 2 very thin pieces of wood (or glass fiber) is appealing, very appealing.
My existence is rural bohemian by choice, it’s what turns me on, I’m not one that has to live in the limelight, I am more than comfortable enough with my own skin to enjoy my own company yet that being said life is long and becomes lonely and dogs don’t offer any input when you ask them advice, they just sit there with a stupid grin on their face wagging their tails hence they are mans friend but not man’s best friend.
As with almost everyone else that has been in a long term relationship, I do come with 1 condition, in the form of an 11 year old son who stays with his mother. He is of paramount importance in my life. I do not carry emotional baggage, sufficient time has passed that my past is exactly that, I do not believe in comparing old flames to new romances as each person is an individual and should be treated as such, it’s the entire package that makes some one appealing.
Lastly, I am not looking to starting a new family, I am past the stage in life that nappies, bottles and waking at all hours of the morning appeals to me, if you have children of your own, that isn’t an issue but expecting more from me or through adoption is out of the question.
