My self-summary
After taking a bit of a hiatus from dating, I decided to update my profile.

I'm 37. Single.
Blah, blah, blah

This is where I'm probably supposed to tell you about all the cool places I've been.
And how "music is my LIFE!"
And where I went to college.
And fitness.
And my awesome dog.

I'm not doing that.
I don't care- and you probably don't, either.

This is me:
I'm not one of those mysterious, emotionally distant badboy types.
I'm not very hip, and I'm not very good at "playing it cool".
I wear my heart on my sleeve.
I have chosen not to hide my compassion, my empathy, or my love for others.
I'm tired of people expecting me to be careful and guarded.
It's so much easier for me to just tell someone how I feel, or what I think.

Things that make perfect sense to me:
If I like you, you'll know it. I'll say so.
If you text me, I'll answer.
If you send an obvious signal, I'll pick up on it.
If you're nice to me, I'll appreciate you.
Out loud, even.
(It's not that hard, fellas)
I prefer to be upfront and straightforward, rather than play guessing games.

I'm looking for serious, long-term, romantic, love stuff- and to make friends with interesting women along the way.

Simple, right?

A little deeper:
My career as a nurse fits me like the rubber gloves that I always seem to have in my pockets.

That's right ladies, I'm a male nurse.
Sensitive enough to understand your feelings.
Tender enough to nurture your heart.
Human enough to accept all your crazy.
Strong enough to carry your baggage.
And I know more about your body than most guys.
Also, it's nearly impossible to gross me out.

My expectations:
Don't be a jerk?

That is all.

I'm easy.
What I’m doing with my life
I have my S together.
Currently, I'm working as a nurse, in a very affluent assisted living community.

Call me old-fashioned, but I'm also looking for real-life, actual grownup love and partnership.
I’m really good at
Empathy and giving a crap, in general.
Problem solving, tinkering, and fixing.
Listening and communicating.
Saying the exact right thing (usually at the right time).
Functioning without enough sleep.
Growing a beard.
Wise-assing, back-sassing, and sarcasm-ing.

Things I'm not really good at:
Dancing, public speaking, looking cool, eating my vegetables, yoga, cooking (I promise I'll do the dishes), horse whispering, taking flattering pictures of myself.
The first things people usually notice about me
I don't really stand out in a crowd.
I do that on purpose.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I don't want to bother much with this part.
I have read/seen/heard all kinds of cool stuff, and my tastes are varied- as are yours.
If we like all the same stuff, that leaves far less to explore- and I think it would be fun to discuss this in person.

As far as food goes-
I do not eat seafood. Never ever.
Anything else is fine by me, though it may be difficult for me if you are vegetarian or vegan.
I prefer not to break your heart with every bite I take, because I prefer every bite to have at least a little bit of bacon in it.
The six things I could never do without
witty banter
means of conveyance
perpetual learning
affection/intimacy
hand sanitizer
other stuff, I'm sure
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I'm all over the place.
On a typical Friday night I am
Wondering where you might be.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm pretty open. Ask me whatever you want.
You should message me if
You want a response.
