Well, hello everybody, my name is Rick. I guess you could say that I am not a social butterfly. In fact, I'm a bit shy in public with people whom I do not already know, and that tends to put a damper on meeting new people. Okay now, onward we go, about me. I'm 6'1", 315 lbs (trying my d*mndest to get down a good 40+ lbs.) I am known to be a paronomasiac. I have a beard and am proud of it (it is sometime shorn to a goatee for the summer.) Ocassionally I can indeed compose a complex and meaningfull turn of phrase. (I over use parenthetical asides.) I like women. I find them to be the most beautiful and maddening beings in all creation. I concede that I will never fully understand them, but hope to make my life's work growing happy with one. I believe that chivalry should never die. I'm a hopeless romantic and rather wishy-washy (I also look a bit like Grizzly Addams; That makes me a human teddy bear.) That being said, I look forward to hearing from anyone, even if its just for friendship.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Well, for common sense and safety's sake, I would definitely expect to meet in a very public place (and not necessarily alone. Remember ladies: if they say you can't bring a friend to the initial meeting DROP EM, thats just creepy), a bookstore coffee shop for instance, because a date should only cause normal nervousness not creepy internet stalker nervousness. (how was that for a long sentence) After that, things simply fall where they may. I am a simple man. I like making others happy and preconceived notions rarely do that. Dinner is always good, so are museums and galleries.
