Mother Nature is giving us a taste of Spring...
You only have one life to live. Then again, if you do it right the
first time, once is enough ;-)
I am here mostly to chat, answer questions and take the tests. It's an interesting way to pass the time. I also read profiles, I mean if you took the time to type something, it should be read, and I definitely enjoy the pictures. So, If one of you ladies puts a picture up of herself in a swimsuit, I'll be happy to check it out for you :D
One other thing I have noticed, I seem to be drawn to pictures of women who wear hats, it seems that hats are on the come back and I am amazed at how many women out there in OK Cupid Land can and do pull off the look... Sexy!!!
If I looked at your profile but did not message you, it does not
mean that I did not like what I saw, it means that I saw a
requirement in your profile that I didn't fit. If you are looking
at my profile and I seem interesting, please shoot me a message and we can talk. In other words, drop me a line and don't miss the chance for something in that one life you have to live.... Also, if I have taken a peek at your profile and you like mine, why not shoot me a message... I travel a lot and I may be in your town or really close by...
As for my political views, some may think I am on the right, others may think I am on the left, I think I am an American, I want what is best for the Nation as a whole, I am happy to discuss this in a civil and mature way, we are all grown-ups here, we see things a bit different, I will respect your views as long as you respect mine...
One last thing, I have conversed with many of the wonderful women on this site, I am not looking for a "Happily Ever After" at this time in my life, but I really do enjoy the conversations. From those conversations, I have learned a lot about myself, and hopefully I have been able to return that favor to a few of you also...
I have received a message, it said:
"In your snapshot, you look like a woman from an exotic land. Chicks are jealous of your eyelashes!!!" ( She disabled her account right afterwords, so I figured it was OK to post this), Is this true????
Still have some grapes if you are interested...
really start living, you know, travel, love that special someone or
* Cooking - Prime rib, turkey, smoked ribs and spaghetti is a
* Baking - I make a mean batch of cookies, and not too bad at bread from scratch
* Making you feel like a queen, or at least a princess... That is unless you have been "BAD"... LOL
The Pointer Sisters wrote Slow Hand with me in mind... ;-)
The first thing people notice about me is, I am a friendly person...
Then they tell me it is my deep voice,
And my Smile... ;-}
I have been told that I have a great sense of humor... Who would have known... LOL
That I strive to treat each and everyone with the utmost respect, I am going to treat you the same whether we are talking via this great electronic media or we are looking each other in the eye's...
Movies - I like true stories, comedies, and romantic
comedies. Also, science fiction, Star Trek movies are
KC and the Sunshine Band
I even like some of Ozzy's work...
Pretty much 70's and 80's Rock
As for Food, I am not too picky, I love raw veggies, but if
they are cooked... Well it is hit or miss on whether I will like
White meat type fish is OK. Not fond of red meat fish unless it is Sushi...
Beef, Pork, Chicken, Soups, Chili, pretty much everything else is great.
Liver should be outlawed as a food... Yuck!!! But it makes good catfish bait... ;)
Did I say women????
Oh-ya, I do love old cars/Hot rods and Trucks...
SIX RULES TO REMEMBER IN LIFE
1. Money can not buy happiness, but it’s more comfortable to cry in a Corvette than on a bicycle.
2. Forgive your enemy, but remember the ass-hole’s name.
3. If you help someone when they're in trouble, they will remember you when they're in trouble again.
4. Many people are alive only because it’s illegal to shoot them.
5. Alcohol does not solve any problems, but then neither does milk.
6. You cannot hang out with negative people and expect to live a positive life.
I am joking.... Or am I????
One last thing, I love a woman's mind as much as her body, but why is it that a woman will dress in such a way as to draw attention to her bosoms, and then get mad at a guy for looking at them???
Things that make me go Mmmm...
At home, or out with friends, who knows. What is typical anyway???
I have never been in a 3-some, but it is on the Bucket List if you would like to help ;-P
I read profiles from the Bottom to the Top
Do I want to have sex with you? Probably, hell I am a man... Am I going to approach you up front and try and get you into the sack, probably not... I am a gentleman...
I HAVE LEARNED...
I've learned that no matter how good a friend is, they're going to hurt you every once in a while and you must forgive them for that.
I've learned that it isn't always enough to be forgiven by others. Sometimes you have to learn to forgive yourself.
I've learned that your life can be changed in a matter of hours by people who don't even know you.
I've learned that heroes are the people who do what has to be done when it needs to be done, regardless of the consequences.
I've learned that you can get by on charm for about fifteen minutes. After that, you'd better know something.
I've learned that although the word "love" can have many different meanings, it loses value when overly used.
I've learned that it's hard to determine where to draw the line between being nice and not hurting people's feelings and standing up for what you believe.
I've learned that no matter how many friends you have, if you are their pillar you will feel lonely and lost at the times you need them most.
I've learned that two people can look at the exact same thing and see something totally different.
I've learned that just because two people argue, it doesn't mean they don't love each other. And just because they don't argue, it doesn't mean they do.
I've learned that you should never tell a child their dreams are unlikely or outlandish. Few things are more humiliating, and what a tragedy it would be if they believed it.
I've learned that maturity has more to do with what types of experiences you've had and what you've learned from them and less to do with how many birthdays you've celebrated.
I've learned that you should always leave loved ones with loving words. It may be the last time you see them.
I've learned that no matter how thin you slice it, there are always two sides.
And you would like to chat, ;-}
If anything more comes from this, that would be a bonus for sure.
One last thing, if I am not your cup of tea, or if you get tired of chatting, please tell me, I am a big boy, I can take it, ghosting someone is for KIDS!!!!
I saw this on Yahoo about Casual Sex:
6 Unspoken Rules for Casual Sex:
1) Check your emotions at the door.
When I hosted my ninth birthday party at a Japanese steakhouse, we were instructed to remove our shoes prior to sitting in our little elevated wooden booth. Then we enjoyed a fiery display that dazzled the senses and whet the appetite before a positively succulent meal.
In casual sex, you should similarly check your emotions at the door. What happens next may not involve an Asian man lighting a table on fire before your eyes or flipping a shrimp tail into his breast pocket but will, if all goes well, prove equally entertaining, satisfying, and, well, hot.
If you or your partner can't ignore your feelings, reconsider the arrangement. Casual sex should be unemotional, not sociopathic. Don't hurt anyone or set yourself up to be hurt-unless, you know, masochism is your thing.
2) Be yourself, only different.
Remember how the Wedding Crashers guys made up all those bogus back-stories? They were foreign legionnaires. Then New York Yankees. Then WASPs. Take a lesson from those masters of casual sex: be yourself-but different.
Don't lie to your partner: "I'd like to be pimps from Oakland or cowboys from Arizona, but it's not Halloween," Owen Wilson said in character. But you can appear more uninhibited, mysterious, and spontaneous than usual. You have permission to adopt somewhat of a character, a romanticized or heightened or self-actualized version of yourself. It's like role-playing, which, it turns out, many people really like.
3) Be a gentleman-and an animal.
Casual sex requires a delicate balance: respect and generosity and safety, coupled with unadulterated, unabashed corporeality. You're a gentleman and an animal, like a werewolf in a top hat.
Find your perfect combination: You're a (more upbeat version of) Edward Norton's polite narrator and, at the same time, Brad Pitt's six-pack-jacked Tyler Durden. You're Steve Urkel and Stefan Urquelle. You're Clark Kent in the streets and Superman in the sheets.
4) Control your portions.
Imagine a food pyramid, only for casual relationships. The base (reserved for grains) should be occupied by sex. When you're having casual sex, have lots and lots of sex. Have the most sex.
At the tippy top of the pyramid, (where sugars and sweets live) are what's to be done sparingly: Host a full-on sleepover followed by brunch the next day, a day in the park and then-why not?-a romantic dinner. That's the opposite of casual.
In between those extremes, you'll find activities like foreplay, showering, watching TV, talking, and preparing post-sex pastrami sandwiches. Handle non-sex, especially arrivals and departures, with self-awareness and courtesy. If you're hosting, don't kick someone out with the brazenness of a World Cup red card; also don't force or expect someone to stay over. If you're a guest, don't sneak out (wake me up before you go-go!), but don't overstay your welcome unless they're offering-and you're up for deli meat and spooning.
5) Pop the questions.
One-night stands, vacation sex, and whatever happened with your masseuse that one time can be anonymous, disorganized, and fleeting.
But if your arrangement appears ongoing, it's best to establish some ground rules. Ask some or all of these questions of yourself and your partner: Is this actually casual for both of us? What happens if our feelings change? How often and when do you want this to happen? Do you expect a date beforehand? Are you cool that I'm also seeing other people? Is this is a secret from friends and coworkers? Have you been tested? Do you like it when I put it there? How does that feel? Do you mind getting on top this time? Really? Right now? In the kitchen?
6) Stare death in the face.
The moment you start having casual sex is the beginning of the end. The arrangement, while enjoyable and healthy, is transient and unsustainable. It may last for a while, but ultimately, your little microcosm is destroying itself, which, in the words of famed sex columnist Al Gore, is an inconvenient truth.
Maybe the sex will get old. Maybe you'll find someone else. Maybe you'll start to like each other. Those definite maybes mean things will change. And when they do, be honest. Say something. Don't pull a Michael Jordan and just fade away. Leave the situation gracefully and respectfully, or get left humbly and patiently. No one likes a bad breakup, especially if there was no relationship to start.
