I’m NOT Sir Lancelot, a white knight in shining armour. I don’t even own shining armour. I don’t even have a horse or a page.
I’m NOT Robin Williams or Eddie Murphy. I know women like to laugh, but I don’t have a team of writers who provide me with fresh material daily. I have no choice but to improvise with whatever the situation dictates at a moments' notice.
I'm NOT Prince Charming. There's not a smidgen of "bad boy" in him. How sexy is that?
I'm NOT George Clooney. I don't want to be a bachelor for the rest of my life. Now he's changed that. Looking for another "lifer" bachelor.
I’m NOT Favio, that muscular hunk with flowing hair embracing a hot young vixen on the cover of a romance novel. He's an imaginary Italian. I'm a real Italian and unlike him, I actually speak.
I’m NOT Mike Holmes. I may be quite adept at renovation projects, but I don't think you have to re-build a wall to install a shelf.
And, let’s not even start with Christian Grey in “Fifty Shades of Grey”.
After all of these years, I think that I'm making some progress in understanding women. I have even begun to understand their buzzwords including:
1) “Fine” – This is the word a woman uses to end an argument when she knows she is right and you need to shut up.
2) “Nothing” – means “Something” and you need to be worried.
3) “Go Ahead” – this is a dare, not permission, don’t do it.
4) “Whatever” – A woman’s way of saying screw you.
5) "What?" - When a woman says “ what ? “, it’s not because she didn’t hear you. She’s giving you a chance to change what you said.
At one time, I thought men came from Mars and women came Venus. However, in the immortal words of the late George Carlin " Men are from Earth, women are from Earth. Deal with it. "
All kidding aside;
I uphold that trust and honesty are paramount in any successful and enduring relationship.
At this point in my life, "life is short" gives rise to a whole new meaning. I don't have the time nor the desire to “sweat the small stuff”. Preserving my mental well being, I choose to maintain a whimsical demeanour and not walk around with a chip on my shoulder.
I am a firm believer that “ you are what you eat “ and, that perpetuating an active and healthy lifestyle promotes a positive and optimistic attitude.
I fancy romantic and intimate dinner dates with stimulating conversation followed by a movie, comedy club, or other venue of our mutual choice. A stroll along a beach at sunset, hand in hand, is also endearing to me.
