Well, yeah. First of all, we are adults. If a woman messages me first it says that she is mature enough to know real relationships (lovers or friends) don't just fall out of the sky. It takes some work, and endless giving without measure. If you want to wait on someone then you might as well keep waiting and waiting. So... About me, I'm very active, random and spontaneous, to say the least. I love to make others happy, even at my own expense. I don't mind going out of my way for others. I like knowing others are safe and taken care of. I have a busy schedule, but I make time for those that are the closet to me. My daughter comes first, and my daughters mom and I are and will always be on good terms. I can't be around anyone who attempts to mess with that. I have 1 full time job, a part time job, and two major sport related hobbies (MMA and CrossFit). I keep a schedule book because I do forget things, no ones perfect. I always try to be considerate, and I never do anything to intentionally disrespect or hurt someone, unless provoked (it takes a lot). I like intellectual movies, creativity, athleticism, ambition, and people with their own opinion and an open mind.
I need someone who is emotionally stable, confident, mature, strong, supportive (I don't need another mother), confident (yeah, needs to be said twice), somewhat intelligent, and someone who can talk trash. I want someone who can be my best friend and not tell me what I want to hear all the time. Balance is key. I use to be the classic Mr. Nice-guy but the world is a cold place. I need someone I can open up to every now and then.
Also... Please no "Barbie" girls, I like to be around people with some depth to themselves. If all you know is hair, shoes, clothes, boys, babies, and the microwave please pass me up. I cook all the time, it would be nice to have someone else cook on occasion.
