My self-summary
I'd rather be a hammer than a nail...

A little about me...

I always hold the door open, quick to compliment, and I address strangers as Sir or Mam. I will look you in the eye when we are speaking, firm handshake but not crushing (I hate those guys), and I smile! I can laugh at myself and find humor or beauty in just about anything!

I like to drink socially but know when to quit, you will never see me falling down drunk. I do not like to argue but if provoked, I am quite good at it! I do not like to fight and will always walk away if possible but again if provoked, I am good at it! I am a sucker for long hair of any color, dark eyes, redheads, and anything unique! Body type, race, and status is not an issue with me as long as you take care of yourself. Cleanliness, attitude, and how you carry yourself is a major plus! I am a huge people person so If you don't like yourself, I am not your match!

It should be noted that I don't play a "numbers game". I'm not going to message 1000 women without reading their profiles in the hopes that a dozen or so will respond. If I send you a message it means that I have read your profile and I'm honestly interested in getting to know you better.

I tend to wear my heart on my sleeve. Do I fall in love easily, yes. Do I fall in love with everyone I have been intimate with, no! If you are really into me I will probably be really into you as well. I give back what I get and then some. I love to kiss and be kissed, I love to touch and be touched, I know when to talk and when to shut up.

So, bottom line here... If you want a date with someone who is confident, secure, pays his own bills, CAN DANCE, knows how to have fun, keeps you laughing, has friends and makes more easily, clean in every respect, honest, complimentary, has no hang up's, lives alone, can cook amazing meals, and really knows how to treat a woman then please say hello. If you just want to chat and make a fun friend who is all of the above then by all means, I always welcome new friends and love to talk and chat. If you are husband shopping it would be helpful if you are Selma Hayek, Geena Davis, or Halle Berry... What took you so long?
What I’m doing with my life
I am finally doing ME! I am a 9-5, M-F kind of guy and have been with the same company for 15 years. I look forward to waking up and going to work everyday. I spend my day solving problems, making decisions, putting out fires, allocating, putting out more fires, bitching, bitching again, managing, meeting, driving, more bitching, fixing, and then going home and you know what? I REALLY DIG IT!!! When I am done for the day I put the top down, crank it up, and sing to the music. Am I a hunter/fisherman? No I am not! A few friends have tried to lead me down that sacred path but my local Publix and Kroger does a much better job of putting food in my freezer!

I have no plans to retire anytime soon, I would not know what to do with myself. I thrive on purpose and direction and believe that once you become idle it is all downhill from there! I have seen it happen too many times in my own family and close friends and all have the same sad results. If you want to retire to your own island then please!!! Buy and build your island before you quit your job! Am I going to buy you an island? Once mine is under contract we can talk about it. For now, a date would be quite nice:)

For fun I love to drive with the top down, I adore water and spend as much time floating as I can. I am a natural swimmer and can hold my breath for a ridiculous amount of time.
