I am not a paying member on this site so if your interested you have to do more than 'like' me.I am not interested in endless emails, just enough to see if there is a chance for us. If I had to do it all over again, would I do it with you? Let's find out. Maybe you and I are perfect for each other! We won't know until we meet and see the truth in each others eyes. The chemistry and butterflies cannot happen except in person. As it is becoming impossible to get around Metro Van in a reasonable amount of time I do lean towards ladies living in the Tri-cities, that is not say I wouldn't travel to the ends of the earth and fight dragons and trolls for the right gal.
Every morning when my feet hit the floor it is the start of a good day. After that it is up to me, good or bad. It is strictly my choice. I choose good!
I don’t want a relationship, they hold you back. I want a best friend I can sleep with, make love to, hustle with, travel with, shop with, club with & live with. Someone I can trust with my heart, my money, & my life. Somebody I’m not afraid to lose because I know they’ll always be there. Relationships just aren’t for me but a partnership, I’ll take that. I am looking for a best friend, a confidant, my biggest fan, my worst critic, my equal, my partner, my escort through life, my warm and safe sanctuary when life runs amok. Is it you? I do not ask for more than I am willing to return. I have met some nice gals on here just not the right one for me. I am looking for that special person to share the rest of my life with. As Bublé sings, "Just haven't met you yet." (shall we Foxtrot?)
I have escorted one lady to her end of days due to cancer, PLEASE, NO SMOKERS!!! If you choose to be an atheist/agnostic we will probably not be meeting in this life, or the next. Although I list as a Christian I would classify myself as a Theist. You do not have to be practicing any particular religion but I do require some nature of faith or spirituality.
No photo, no profile... really? You must be just window shopping.
I'm told I have a totally outrageous, perhaps irreverent sense of humor. If you can't laugh at life and at yourself then this is probably not a stop for you. I enjoy the company of intelligent, fun loving people who can laugh at themselves.
I am slow to anger. Profiled, I show up as guardian/provider. I am compassionate, empathetic and loyal. I do not quit...I may make a tactical advance to the rear.
"Pick someone you love to talk to because as you grow old that is all you will have left." Open and honest communication is so important it cannot be overstressed.
I will challenge you, push your boundaries and I expect the same in return. My lifestyle has been more sedentary over that last few years, the journey has been one of honor but not necessarily one I would recommend for everyone. I am now looking to get out, become more active and get the old me back. Currently I swim several mornings a week, I do lengths for 1 hour. I am also in a Meetup group that does a lot of walks, I try to do at least 2 a week of about 7 -8 kms each. I want someone who will join me, not just be waiting for me when I get home. That is not to say we cannot have our own hobbies that we do by ourselves or with friends. For example: I enjoy standing waist deep in near frozen river water, in the pouring rain or snow in January and being the jerk on one end of a fishing pole waiting for a jerk on the other end. I hope you like seafood, not that I ever catch anything.
Walk beside me, as an equal, and we will share the burdens. Take the lead and break trail that my passage will be a little easier and I will do the same for you. I will have your back and give a nudge to keep you moving ever forward and again, this must also be reciprocal. As a team, we will never be defeated; our journey will be calm, serene and fulfilling.
I am hands on, a handyman...as Red Green would say, "If the women don't find ya handsome, they oughta at least find ya handy."
I enjoy the outdoors, but I do not camp in tents anymore, except when kayaking. I like fishing; I build my own rods and tie flies, enjoy shooting sports, swimming, walking, bike riding, cooking, love my gardens; especially my roses, my hot tub and a glass of good wine and most beers. I love my kidz and their kidz. Papa (that's me) is old and wise and has great stories.
I love really hot showers, outstanding coffee, great food, great friends, a woman I can spoil and who will return the favor in her own way. I don't know if I could go long without the VSO, live theatre, country and western, pop, soft jazz and many other concerts and frankly...the quiet times.
My car radio is usually on JR FM or WX, but I can also do soft jazz, folk, bluegrass...pretty much anything except rap, heavy metal and general crap. When I am cooking for you I likely have El Divo or soft jazz on (the Great American Songbook). Not a chef but I love to cook and bake for two or more.
I am quite definitely not interested in a one night stand! Any relationship I enter into is going to be 100/100; I will give you 100% of Brian, I expect 100% of you in return.
Well you've made it to the end. I hope I have piqued your interest. Drop me a line. By the way ... I do bite.
not bad at cooking
being there when needed, being gone on girl's night.
Movies: action, romantic comedy, animated
Music: Country, old Rock & Roll, soft jazz, El Diva, Celtic Women, pipes and drums.
Food: My mother always put two things on the table...take it or leave it! Leaving it meant you got it cold for the next meal. I'll try anything once. Home made baked Mac & Cheese is my comfort food, it makes my tummy happy and that leads to a happier me. Family dinner would be roast beast and Yorkshire with smashed potatoes, 2 veggies and thick gravy.
are totally honest
can laugh at yourself and the condition human, a sense of humor is pretty much mandatory
You must have some belief in a Higher Power or Supreme Being but you do not have to be a fanatic about it.
