My self-summary

The gal I seek will be the person who sees beyond the fact that I'm chunky in a Kevin James way, see my heart, my intellect, my want and love for family and looks beyond my flaws as I'll see past your flaws to focus on your positives. I'm not at all looking for a model or size 5.......a size 16 with a heart twice that works for me! Someone I can make laugh till it hurts and makes me smile even on a bad day! The one that will think of me in the middle of the day. Hold my hand and just love our talks, love listening to me play my guitar while we all mess up the words to whatever songs we are attempting!!

I am a creative, warm, affectionate man who doesn't take myself or life too seriously. I'm an intellectual (but NOT a snob) who is open minded and non-judgmental yet loves to think outside the box, laugh and seeks to enjoy life. I don't just ask "why?" but also "why not?" or "why not this way?" I believe when two people find each other that click they should seek solutions to issues that arise other than "it's over I'm gone". While I'm more than capable on my own I want to share the good as well as the trials and tribulations of life with another as one. To that end I'm seeking my a partner, best friend, lover and soul mate that is the first person I wish to share with when something wonderful happens and the only one I turn to when life throws a curve ball...and I can be the same for them.

I'm aware many women (and men) just scope out the pictures and never bother to READ these summaries. I tried the long version of "I'm this and that and seek this and that" in great detail with little success so now I'm trying the short, emotional 1040EZ route! LOL!!! YEAH, I KNOW TRYING BUT SEEMS LIKE IT STILL IS LONG!! You want to know about me please take a chance and ASK! One of my virtues (though often viewed as a negative) is I'm extremely direct hence I don't play games. Read the 2000 or so questions I've answered....which gives a pretty accurate idea of who I am. Again, anything else simply ask. While I stand by what I say here I also believe when two people come together compromises on both sides happen. I met an amazing, kind woman and I loved her....but the damage from her past ran too deep and destroyed us. That was a year ago. There are some things that just "are" with me and others where wiggle room exist.

INFP Personality: http://www.16personalities.com/test-results




According to this test I am one of the Diplomats - an empathic and idealistic individual who enjoys exploring interesting ideas and prizes morality. You are known for your poetic nature, intuitive skills and pure, childlike enthusiasm.

Over the last XX??? months I've met, spoke with on the phone, had dinners with every version of game playing, lying, batshit crazy women in the greater St. Louis and So. Illinois area (as well as a few who just weren't emotionally ready for anyone or just weren't at my level of intellect/compassion/passion). Surprise me......BE A LITTLE NORMAL! You don't need to be thin (I prefer chunky women)..I'm not even asking for someone who doesn't have some baggage and shit in their past (at our ages who doesn't have baggage?)......I almost prefer it as you will better understand me as I'll better understand you.
What I’m doing with my life
Right now I'm doing revision #272 on this profile!!! LOL!! Beyond that I'm dusting myself off from ANOTHER in a series of women after they claimed they wanted a relationship only to get a 2AM call after things get sexual crying they "THOUGHT they were but ARE NOT"! I feel I've managed to meet every type of crazy broad on the spectrum from batshit nuts stalker to actual staff working in the mental health field and come away with enough data and bad experiences to write a thesis on unstable women! All I want is to meet a nice gal to enjoy time with. I'm NOT PERFECT but I can say if I had to trade the scars from my life history and being fat with what I've seen and met I FEEL PRETTY DAMN GOOD ABOUT ME!!! My point isn't to bash women but if you have "issues" please skip to the next poor bastard because I've had my quota of crazy. I'm sure there are plenty of women who've met guys like the women I have and feel as I do.

Soooo...I'm hoping that the right lady who compliments my warped humor, sex drive and intellect will respond!!! I'm not looking for a corporate executive that works 80 hours a week and has no time for a relationship (why would a woman put a profile up if they haven't the time for a guy in their life?) nor someone who lives in their car. I want someone I can laugh with, talk with and enjoy discovering each other. Someone I can enjoy out of bed as much as in bed! Is that direct enough?

If money, status, a big house and someone to save you from abstract poverty is what you seek in a man best to pass on me because, while I manage and pay my own way, I struggle just like 90% of America.

I'm a firm believer that managing adversity in life is less when there's two just as accomplishments are so much sweeter when there's someone to share them with!
I’m really good at
I'm a really good listener......when I shut up long enough to let you talk!! I've been told my insights and advice has been helpful. I'm loyal. I'm good at having your back and problem solving. If something is wrong or bothering you don't make me drag it out of you.....feel comfortable enough to lean on me and just open up and share! Life is so damn complicated / so fleeting and short, the last thing I want is a woman than makes EVERYTHING in life a battle or drama. I prefer someone that can laugh it off. I don't expect perfect....just perfect for me and in that comes alot of imperfections. Negotiating, talking problems through without yelling and disrespect (no Jerry Springer drama crap), compromise as long as it remains equal on both!

I'm your rock in a crisis, great with computers, laugh at your inability to program your cellphone and take joy in doing it for you while making your favorite songs ringtones for you. The little things...ya know? Besides being a computer geek, musician and writer I'm really good at being your best friend....someone always there to turn to when it seems like life is dumping on you in spades....I have a big heart and big shoulders, standard equipment with the big belly!! So are YOU a woman who can see a bear hug from a big hearted guy more relevant than their size 40 waist? If you are we should talk. I'm not looking for some size 5 Barbie......I like something to squeeze and meat on your bones as well!
The first things people usually notice about me
Some notice my eyes, my rather freakish ability to recall everything you say, my selective memory for odd facts, others appreciate my intellect on a variety of subjects and ability to chat (or inability to shut up!)...most enjoy how I make them laugh....I have a sarcastic, sometimes dark sense of humor and am pretty fearless when it comes to saying what's on my mind (quite a double-edged sword). Many find my full head of hair and hairy chest a turn on. I guess I'll just have to wait till you tell me!

On the flip-side a recent "first date/last date" who lacked the manners to WAIT till I arrived at the eatery SHE INSISTED ON and was already stuffing her face when I showed up then proceeded to take off her shoes and stretch out her not so attractive barefoot in the booth moving on to tell me she couldn't see having sex with me (NO I DIDN'T ASK!) closed the night with a therapy assessment OF MY FLAWS!! I was looking for the hidden camera thinking this was meant for a bad reality show! Why did I share this? To show you even us guys come across foul, bad dating experiences and if we meet and you don't feel sparks you also won't have to worry about feeling my hand on your ass because as much as I would like to avoid another rude, bad dating experience I don't want to be one!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love those cheesy 80′s movies ("Secret Of My Success", "Sixteen Candles", "Doc Hollywood", "Hello Again", "Nothing In Common", "Ruthless People"...etc) as well as some classics like "Lenny", "A Star Is Born" and "Sunset Blvd." and oddities no one has heard of like "Shattered", "Johnny Handsome", "Intersection", "Hoffa", "Guilty As Sin" and "Kill Me Again". I LOVE classic rock (I can NEVER get used to calling it that having seen the birth of Motley Crue, Warrant and Van Halen up close growing up and performing in SoCal)....so with me you are stuck with 70s and 80s music (Van Halen, Queen, Bon Jovi, Ratt, Chicago, Queensryche, Dream Theater, The Beatles (collectively and solo), Rush, Elton John, Black Sabbath, Dio, Toto, Iron Maiden, Ozzy.....the list goes on!). I don't dance having the tiny detail of two left feet and matching bad knees from my warehouse-truck driving days but I will compromise and sit in a chair and let you dance for and on me!! LOL!!

I love reading authorized and unauthorized biographies (usually famous and infamous people) from rock stars to innovators like Howard Hughes and Preston Tucker to politicians and political history to serial killers.....is there much of a leap between today's political leaders and serial killers? Make for an interesting topic over dinner on a first date..LOL!! Also various books such as George Orwell's 1984, A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess, The Giver by Lois Lowry and of course ANIMAL FARM!!!!

I love TV shows like Ringer, Body Of Proof, Two And A Half Men, King Of The Hill, Arrow, Rockford Files, Veronica Mars, Knight Rider (original and later version).

As my belly demonstrates I enjoy food! Italian, Seafood, Mexican....everything from Applebee's / O'Charlies simple to those oddball hole-in-the-wall places you just happen across while out for a nice drive....anything BUT fancy as I don't do the suit and tie thang!
Six things I could never do without
My kids, air conditioning, indoor plumbing, that special gal that matters in my heart and I in hers, my guitars and my computer.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The future, money, life, health, if I'll be in a better place 5 years from now, what I can contribute to make life a better place for others, whether St. Louis will ever offer thick crust pizza? LOL!
On a typical Friday night I am
Sometimes working, if in a relationship can range from cuddling on the couch watching movies to kickin' it in my hot tub to making love listening to the thunder to an overnight or weekend getaway.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Now how private would it be if I put it on a forum? LOL!! I reserve my many private thoughts, dreams and fantasies to be shared on a stormy night with that special lady I have yet to meet!
You should message me if
....not listed in any particular order of priority:

1) You enjoy long talks and affection (not necessarily at the same time).

2) You aren't so old that the things that used to be dry are wet and the things that are supposed to be wet are dry!

3) You love to laugh, are chubby, wear your heart on your sleeve and are HONEST. I'd rather be disappointed by the truth than betrayed by a lie and liars.

4) You are seeking a man long-term.

5) You are unquestionably straight! Nothing against alternative lifestyles and open marriages....just not for me. I'm too selfish and don't share!

6) You are seeking a 50/50 equal partnership No control freaks!.

7) You are not dating anyone at present. (this includes talking to other guys with intention of dating and fucking old friends, ex's....and family members! YUK! Some of what I've met!!!)

8) You are NOT a CONTROL FREAK! Yes I'm aware this is a repetition but yet needs to be stated twice.

9) You value happiness over money.
The two of us
