I will tell you what Im looking for... I want to have some fun, but the kind of fun where I have made a connection with someone and we both enjoy and look forward to that time together. I'm an outgoing good-natured family man who has a big heart and I love being that way! Do I give a dollar to every homeless person I cross, no I dont! But you will see me leave quarters on the ground in a playground knowing the excitement some little kid will have in the near future. I hold doors and smile. I enjoy chivalry!
Im as loyal as they come and honesty, communication and caring are important to me. My friends come to me, because I listen and I care about them, about everyone. I would do most anything for those close to me and I garner their trust. I have made some mistakes being a friend, but Ive learned from those and Im a better friend for it.
I like to stay active, looking for opportunities to gain new experiences, visit new places and meet new people. Life should be experienced, not squandered. I find this to be better when shared with someone else. I jump at the chance to experience life with others and find it more enjoyable when a memory is shared. This could be hiking in Yosemite national park or a last minute drive to the cape just to slide down the sand dunes. I think nothing of a 6 hour drive to Acadia National Park in Maine to see the sun rise and hike to an elevated lake for a swim in the crystal clear water. If I can create a new experience for someone else, all the better. Add a touch of spontaneity and you have me prompting my fellow coworkers to jump in the Atlantic surf at 3 in the morning in business attire after a long day of meetings and a longer night of "bonding"! Lots of heavy wet suitcases the next morning!
I like to stay fit and active but I am not a traditional gym person. Ive never had to work at it too much, though that does change with age. Ive been lucky enough to be physically adept. I'm best under pressure or when Im challenged both physically or mentally. Tell me I can't climb a certain mountain and Ill wave at you from the top! Don't take this as co%ky or arrogant. I would never look to turn someone off that way! I am confident, but Im also supportive and will build you up when you need it most. I stay fit with activities like rock climbing, biking, sports, hiking, whatevs!
I'm mature and immature, it's about being appropriate in the situation. Take me to a work function and I will do my best to make you proud but put me in front of a group of 6 year olds and watch the little boy come out!
I'm super happy that you have read this far. You should know that I have loved and I have learned. I've made mistakes and I've made friends. It takes experiences to give you perspective on your life, how you want to lead it and to know what truly is important to you and those around you. Ultimately I am looking for someone who would enjoy life with me. There is a balance between agape and eros (take the time to look it up) and Im looking to discover that with someone. I know that all sounds serious and to some degree it is. Believe me I am not like that all the time, but it is important for you to know I do think of those things and they do have meaning to me.
Last but certainly not least, I have two boys. You'll quickly be aware that they are a big part of my life!
So, if you are interested in meeting someone who likes to make you feel special and have some good times, you should message me. I want to know about you.
Here are some questions if you are game. Answer one, answer all, answer none:
What is a special place that you have visited and evokes happy memories?
What is something that has made you proud? Why?
What is it most that you look for in a man's profile? Be honest... I don't judge!
What trait defines you as, not just a woman, but as a person?
Is there something that drives you?
Accepting a challenge
TRULY listening and TRULY caring
Singing the McDonalds menu song from 1987
Sending long messages that say way more than "hi" to women on here and never hearing back
I do like movies and will watch just about anything. I can watch movies for pure entertainment or others for cinematic artistry.
I love all types of music, really! For me sometimes its about the mood you want and feeling the music. I will break out in dance randomly and very often when Im home alone.
Food... I've been working to really broaden my palate. I do try to eat a little healthier but definitely don't deny myself of the pleasure that some foods can be. Italian, seafood, Thai, Chinese are all good. I like to cook and would love to cook with someone.
Leaving this spot for that someone special when I find her... then again, if I find her I suppose I wouldn't have this profile anymore, so I guess I am sort of leaving this spot blank.
As long as I got Buffalo wings into the list, I dont really need a 6th
You are ready to really ENJOY life with someone special.
You want to be with someone for who they are and not who you want them to be.
When you need it, he:
fills your wine glass
stretches out his hand
squeezes you just right
gives you your space
makes you laugh
cries with you
(and you do this all the same for him)
You simply want to get to know a good guy with the hope that something more can develop. You have to trust me on the good guy part!
