Let me save you some time. I'm in a poly/open relationship. She knows I'm on here.
Still interested? Good!
About me... I'm a laid back, easy going, introverted, sometimes silly, sometimes serious kind of guy. I'm married and in an open relationship. The reason I'm on here is to find new friends for good conversation. If we want it to become more, it can. If there's no spark there, but we still enjoy chatting, we can just be friends. I don't know about you, but I can never have too many friends in my life.
Let me get this out there right away. I'm NOT cheating on my spouse. She knows I'm on here. I'm NOT looking for a hookup, one nighter, something on the side, casual encounter, whatever you want to label it. I need to feel an emotional connection with someone before there can be any physical.
I get the same type of questions a lot, so I made a FAQ in the "Message me" section.
If you have any questions, comments, suggestions, or whatever, please feel free to message me. Just don't assume something. If you think you might be interested in me, let's talk. I'm never mean or rude, so ask me anything.
I've been getting a few notices on here that people are marking me as a favorite and I'm getting the "people like me" notice. Unfortunately, I'm not an A-lister so I can never see who it is! If you send me something like that, I'll probably never know it was you. If it was you, don't be afraid to message me. I don't bite!
This came up in a conversation I'm having and I feel it's a good thing to add here. If I were looking to do something behind my wife's back, would I be trying to contact people hundreds, and even thousands, of miles away!? Come on, people! I don't own a jet or a teleporter. And spellchecker, get those damn squiggly lines from under teleporter! You know damn well they exist!
Until then, I spend it looking for people with kind hearts and a great sense of humor for good conversation. I need more of that in my life.
Beyond that, I'm working full time, I'm a home owner, and a multiple pet owner. So, I spend most of my spare time taking care of responsibilities.
Seriously? *sigh* Ok.....
I've been told that I'm an easy person to talk to. Plus I naturally smile a lot, so it helps to brighten people's mood. I'm also quite dependable and responsible. I'm the guy you can call when you have a flat tire and need help or when you need help moving and have big furniture and lots of stuff. I'm the type to show up every time, willing to help, with no expectations of anything in return. I will, however, accept chocolate chip cookies as a tip.
I've been working on making myself not quite the big guy anymore. Since hostess disappeared for a while, I managed to kick my twinkee habit. And to avoid my weakness for bacon, I started frying it nude.
Seriously, though, I've changed my diet and have been steadily losing weight. I'm enjoying the increased energy and more positive attitude. I'm sure that shows.
I love comedies because I love to laugh! Anything Monty Python. Anything Mel Brooks. Most of the Farrelly brothers' movies. Anything with Melissa McCarthy. Just about anything with SNL members. Airplane! Kentucky Fried Movie. Classic comedies with Marx Bros. Three Stooges. Chaplin. Buster Keaton. Harold Loyd. I could be here all day if I listed the comedies that I enjoy.
I enjoy scifi. Both Star Wars & Star Trek. I've seen the original Star Wars trilogy so many times, it's imprinted on my brain. I could close my eyes and watch it right now.
Fantasy/Adventure: Lord of the Rings trilogy. Avengers. Usually all things superhero related.
Random other: Pulp Fiction. Fight Club. La Femme Nikita. Kill Bill. Paper Moon.
Classic rock (Beatles, Zeppelin, Elvis)
80s rock (Van Halen, The Cars, The Police)
90s rock (Smashing Pumpkins, Soundgarden, Alice In Chains)
2000s rock (Foo Fighters, White Stripes)
Funk (Prince! P-Funk, E,W&F, Rick James)
VERY little country (love Johnny Cash!)
I can enjoy just about anything. And this list is just scratching the surface.
I'm an extremely picky eater. My weakness is junk foods. I'm working on correcting that. I am a vegetarian, though. Except bacon. My one weakness. I grew up in a southern family with southern breakfasts. I acquired the taste for it and can't seem to let it go. I also love breakfast foods! I can eat them all day, every day! Also, mostly during the Fall and Winter, I can live off of stove popped popcorn. Not that microwave, flavorless junk! yuck
Video games: I don't play a ton of games like I use to, but I do enjoy them very much. I have a WoW account. As does my wife. She's much better at it than me.
Things I can do without:
or maybe it's still early when I'm writing this and I just need some caffeine.
Wait, I'm a guy so that's not much of a surprise.
I'm on a dating site, looking for friends? Actually, this is more than just a dating site, it's a relationship site.
Ok. Ok. I still will listen to top 40 radio stations. I know! I know! Most of it isn't really original or thought provoking. But some of it is so damn catchy! I have a crush on Katy Perry. Ok, you can stop laughing now. STOP IT! *cry*
Q: Why don't you have a photo here?
A: Sometimes I'll put up a discreet photo so people can see I'm not some creature from the unknown. Just your average, everyday guy.
Q: That didn't answer the question, why no photo or just a discreet one?
A: I have family, friends, and co-workers on here. They don't know we are in an open marriage.
Q: If I ask, would you send me a pic?
A: If you're willing to take a moment to get to know me, I'll gladly sent you a pic. Yes, including my unblocked, unaltered face. If you want to see more than that, we'll have to get to know each other more.
Q: Are you cheating on your spouse?
A: No. I'm NOT cheating on my spouse.
Q: I don't believe you.
A: That's not a question.
Q: Are you here looking for just sex?
A: No. I'm here looking for friendships. If it leads to more, I'm open to it. I need an emotional connect before something like that can happen.
Q: Are you here looking for sex chat?
A: No. If we develop a relationship that includes this type of talk, I'm fine with that. But only if it's something we are BOTH interested in.
Q: What if I'm not interested in going further with you and only want a friendship?
A: Then I would be extremely happy to have you for my friend.
Q: How overweight are you?
A: I'm NOT morbidly obese. I'm healthy and quite active. At one point in my life, I was quite athletic. Just age, work, life has helped to tack on some pounds.
Q: I think you're funny. Should I message you to let you know?
A: I want to wear your ass as a hat. Yes, you should. Warning, it'll only encourage me.
Q: I took offense to that answer, should I still message you?
A: Probably not. You might be too serious for me.
Q: What if I enjoy serious conversation instead of just being silly all of the time?
A: I'm right there with you. I love trying to make you laugh. I also love having meaningful conversations and hearing about your life. Good or bad.
Q: Are you part of any religious organization?
A: No. If you are and can keep an open mind about people who don't share your beliefs, I'd still love to talk with you.
Q: What are your political views?
A: Like everyone, I have my opinions. I don't strongly follow politics, but I will talk about them if you'd like. My opinions strongly lean to the left. I'm pro-gay rights, pro-equality, pro-women rights, pro-choice, pro-gression, pro-crastinating, pro-jectile, pro-wrestling, pro-carried away and need to stop.
Q: I'm a big fan of an artist and/or movie you listed. Would you like to talk about it?
A: The message button is up there... or is it down there. Find it, click on it, and lets talk about it!
Q: I want to message you, but I can't think of anything to say. You've already answer my questions. What should I say?
A: You can just say "Hi." I don't mind.
Q: Why do you keep visiting my profile but never send me anything?
A: I probably forgot I've read your profile already. The good thing is that I keep seeing something about you that I like, so I keep checking you out. No, I'm not talking about your pic. I'm either getting a vibe that you wouldn't welcome a message from me or your "dance card" seems full and you have no time for me. If I'm wrong, you're free to tell me. :)
A: I'd like to talk, but I prefer to be contacted with questions to give me something to work with.
Q: Tell me about yourself. What do you do for a living? What do you do in your spare time? Where are you from? Is there anything you'd like to know more about me?
