I am seeking a woman who enjoys similar things in life! However, it is unreasonable to expect her and I to enjoy the exact same things. Wouldn't life be boring if we were all the same? It is important to appreciate a person as much for their differences as their similarities. I place high value on a woman who is open, honest, sincere, and self-motivated to pursue her own fitness goals.
I know that the modern trend is for tattoos and/or piercings in areas other than ear lobes. I am conservative in that respect, so I don't have either nor do I find them to be attractive. To each their own, but I would rather see art in a painting or sculpture rather than permanently affixed to a person.
I should also explain that I quit drinking for my own health. I don't have a problem being around people who are drinking as long as everyone is having a good time!
I do exercise and would like to find a woman who takes care of herself as well. I'm sure you've probably seen profiles where people say one thing but then the photos don't support it. I don't want to mislead anyone nor be misled in return.
People have said that I'm a bit old-fashioned....perhaps that is meant as a critique? Instead I'll take it as a compliment. Yes, I may be a bit old-fashioned because I value the simple things in life. I also treat people with respect and operate according to The Golden Rule - "do unto others as you would have them do unto you". That's leading a life with integrity and I wouldn't have it any other way!
