Many times I think this site gets a bad rap. I've met some incredible women on this site who any guy would be lucky to have including myself, but I'm going to be involved with some unique things in the near future that I feel might be best suited for someone who has some similar passions...and then they have to like me...yikes!!
I have many female friends and cherish my relationships with them, but I'm a chronic monogamist and those are honest words. I have never been lucky enough to be with a woman who wasn't jealous to some degree, or who didn't get bent because I'm never jealous, even the most beautiful and seemingly secure, even though I tried to make them feel like the only girl in the world. What makes it even sadder is that I'm loyal to a fault, and other than a few youthful indescretions in my 20's I have never cheated.
Much of the work I do is with incredible looking women, but thats just a part of the work, so if you're someone who wastes energy on jealousy, you may want to pass and go with the juiced up guy that took a selfie in his BVDs in front of the mirror. I know what I want and emotionally healthy, and grown out of the ego-driven macho cave man phase. I believe in integrity and I have some old fashion values and morals that are my conerstones ie honesty, following through, meaning what you say and saying what you mean etc, but don't be fooled, I still have rock star type fun. If you couldn't tell, I'm still a work in progress, but don't really have much baggage and very aware of my faults.
I go through life with optomism, laughter and a healthy faith. Finding someone who understands how important humor is, is really necessary for me. Laughter is a gift that should never be taken for granted. I hope to find someone who understands that.
I'm looking for someone to travel and play outdoors with who will hopefully be interested in helping me with designing and building a children's camp on the water front in north Edmonds and also building a musical/arts non-profit for kid's above Meadowdale beach a few miles south of the kid's camp that will also cater to kid's with challenges. Or at a minimum will be tolerant of the time I spend with it. I'm building a state of the art music recording studio to work with the kid's and professional musicial artists will also record there and sponsor a child with an instrument and teach the children how to play and perform in lieu of paying for studio time in a beautiful facility that over looks the Puget Sound instead of the typical dungeon style studio that so many are used to recording in.
We're also going to work with abused women who may be stuck in some ugly situations and facilitate a way out and hopefully help them to find their smile again providing transitional housing and a Wellness center working with them and disabled vets with yoga and many other things but you get the idea. Again, if your passions are in other areas it doesn't mean we will not be a good match, I get lot's of mail everyday from women who try and convince me that this is their thing. I tend to be pretty observant and good at reading between the lines so I notice that with many it's almost like their talking themselves into it as they are writing. We all have different things that push our hot button. Maybe helping animals is your thing, it's mine too but there is more qualified people for that, maybe you so please don't think if you don't have similar passions I wouldn't be interested, just as long as you're passionate about something and above all honest. I can't stress enough how important honesty and trust is to me. I don't do so well with people who are not passionate about something and I can get on board with a lot of things. I actually enjoy learning about things I'm ignorant about...maybe we could add it to our bag of tricks? I'm very open minded and not judgmental. So what are you passionate about?
I recently read this and it really resonated with me, especially at this stage of my life...Don't spend major time with minor people. If there are people in your life that continually disappoint you, break promises, stomp on your dreams, too judgmental, have different values and don't have your back during difficult times...that is not a friend.The hardest battle in life is to be yourself in a world that tries hard, day and night, to make you like everyone else. Sometimes in life as you grow, your friends will either grow or go. Surround yourself with people who reflect solid values, great goals, varied interests and a lifestyle that is fruitful, positive and productive....
I'm attracted to sharp women who can laugh at themselves , devoid of ego who are not pretentious, are honest, capable, whitty and humble that make me laugh even when not trying to. I got my plumbing license while in college, not because I'm a trend setter and knew sporting your butt-crack would become hip one day, but as a fail safe and I can build a house from top to bottom so you don't need to be that brand of capable, just the type that can think on your feet and wouldn't feel the need to call me crying hystaricly when the spring on your french press gets bent. If you know how to stop the toilet from running or how to change a tire, I may build a shrine. But make no mistake, I am fully aware of who the stronger sex is, and I respect them much more than most guys do.
I spend lots of time on my mtn bike and on Mt. Baker whether playing on my snowmobile or hiking in the summer with a good snowball fight in July. I enjoy anything in the snow or water. I'm very much a mountain and beach fanatic and enjoy island hopping in the San Juan's by boat, and soon with a really cool new light sport amphibious aircrat that is the safest ever made. Any excuse to travel is a good one. I Love fine dining & hole in the walls. I enjoy cooking and do well with others in the kitchen, as long as my cleaver and a glass of Merlot is at arms reach.
I like growing my own food and bit of a chronic gardner trying to escape the GMO food we are being poisened with. I'm not legalistic or religious in any way, I just prefer to play by the rules...well most of them... My interests are pretty eclectic. I thought I'd be retiring and building my Taj Mahol ranch in the hills at this stage of my life, but it looks like that will be put off for a few years now with most of my time in the future spent running a foundation dedicated to children and music and the other causes I mentioned I'm passionate about.
In a perfect world it would be fantastic if my othër hàlf happened to share my passion for music and children. Someone who would also be about giving children the gift of music and introducing them to the arts including dance, and theatre since the schools have cut the arts budgets. I've met women who may have been a good fit for me if I wasn't tackling the things I've mentioned, but they are things I'm passionate about so finding one who's past serial dating and maybe shares some similar passions or tolerant of it has proven to be a bit more challenging.
If you have a career you love I'll be your biggest fan and support all your dreams, but if you would like to participate in my little venture and feel we have a shot at forevermore, that would be great too. Beause I also desire a playmate who can eventually be spontaneous and willing to fly to some exotic place at the drop of a hat. Don't let having children still at home stop you, I do very well with almost all kid's. If you're the type that after finding out that one of the guys from your favorite hair band in the 80s will be using the studio and you show up that day with big hair, spandex and feel the need to throw your panties with your phone number at them, we may have a problem. I've usually been the best at what I do, and due in no small part to an outstanding woman at my side who was my partner and complete equal in every way. I also enjoy buying real estate and designing and restoring old one of a kind properties and treasure hunting for antiques and cool old things from yesterday. I try to support small business anyway I can, women now own 58% of all small business.
I'm into sports and go to as many concerts as possible, so again it would be great if you LOVE music and are a CREATIVE soul. I need frequent endorphin fixes to think right and I always need to be learning and challenging myself, it's just the way I'm wired. Go big, life is too short to go any other way. I've asked my past girlfriends what they liked about me and the ones that didn't say "nothing you loser", said being the right brand of unpredictable, and that they never got bored.
I like intuitive women who can communicate with a look and has the unique ability to walk into a room and everyone else becomes invisible to me. I'm hugely a creative type in almost every part of my life, and very much at my best when it's at full stride. I'm holding out till I fnd the same.
Hopefully your as comfortable in jeans and a Tee as you are in your LBD, a little tomboy and a whole lot of girlie-girl.
Someone who REALLY appreciates the outdoors and all of what the NW has to offer, and doesn`t just talk a good game. Someone who is an animal lover. Most importantly..I'm looking for my best friend, and someone who will always have my back. If you can make it to the top of Mt. Baker by snowmobile, we may just be picking out china patterns when we get back down. My only absolutes are honesty, trust and loyalty.
I'm looking for a lady with that something extra who won't settle for second best because I won't either. I will always have your back, treat you like a princess, be your biggest fan, best friend and support you in your dreams without jealousy or ego...and I mean it. If this makes sense to you, I would love to hear from you, even if I'm not your cup of tea and you would like to help with the kid's.
I like women over35 most of all. Here are just a few reasons why:
A woman over 35 will never wake you in the middle of the night and ask, 'What are you thinking?' She doesn't care what you think.
If a woman over 35 doesn't want to watch the game, she doesn't sit around whining about it. She does something she wants to do, and it's usually more interesting...
Women over 35 are dignified. They seldom have a screaming match with you at the opera or in the middle of an expensive restaurant. Of course, if you deserve it, they won't hesitate to shoot you, if they think they can get away with it.
Older women are generous with praise, often undeserved. They know what it's like to be unappreciated. Women get psychic as they age. You never have to confess your sins to a woman over 35.
Once you get past a wrinkle or two, a woman over 35 is far sexier than her younger counterpart. Older women are forthright and honest. They’ll tell you right off if you are a jerk, if you are acting like one! You don’t ever have to wonder where you stand with her.
Yes, we praise women over thirty five for a multitude of reasons. Unfortunately, it’s not reciprocal. For every stunning, smart, well-coiffed hot woman of thirty five-plus, there is a bald, paunchy relic in yellow pants making a fool of himself with some twenty-two-year-old waitress.
Ladies, I apologize.
For all those men who say, “Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free,” here’s an update for you. Now 80 percent of women are against marriage, why? Because women realize it’s not worth buying an entire pig, just to get a little
sausage.. A. Rooney
