I am your everyday normal, lonely but not alone, guy next door who seeks his girl next door. That's right, I said normal. Probably a very rare quality on here. I have not dated at all in 3 years. It has been a hard few years, but I am now ready to put myself back out there and start having fun again.
I am very selective in who I choose to spend my spare time with and to be honest I can afford to be. Some of you might consider this to be arrogant, but nothing could be further from the truth. I am just very confident in what I am looking for and what I deserve. I would much rather stay single than to settle. I believe I am an attractive guy, but I'm also smart enough to know that I am not everybody's type.....nobody is.
I am always mistaken for much younger than I really am. On my birthday this past March, one of my regular customers thought I was only 36. Yay for me :). I am very young at heart as well.
I have my body type listed as average. But I have been much more active the past few months compared to the last couple of years. I have been hiking in the mountains, rollerblading and riding my bike to work on a regular basis. This is still a work in progress, but I am well on my way to getting back to my althletic status but I will never be a huge muscle bound kind of guy. If that is a problem for you, I suggest you move on to the next profile.
I Love to laugh and have a great sense of humor. Laughter is one of those things that keeps me feeling young and alive. So if you can make me laugh, we will get along just fine. Trust me this isn't that hard to do. Life is just way too short not to be laughing every day.
I am a Lover not a fighter. But I always have and always will stand up for the things I believe to be right and true.
I am extremely competitive and hate to lose. But it's not to the point where I am a sore loser.
I have my class 6 license but I haven't owned a bike in a couple of decades. Every spring when I see all the bikes coming out of hibernation, I always consider buying another one.
I used to play the saxophone as a kid but then playing hockey became much more important. Recently I thought it might be fun to take it back up.
You will never see me in a cowboy hat and cowboy boots. I know this is cowtown home of the Calgary Stampede, but there is already enough drugstore cowboys in this city.
I have never been married and don't have any children. But I have several nieces and nephews that I absolutely Love to death. It's pretty cool getting to be the favorite uncle. I don't mind if you have children as long as you have a good working relationship with their father. I don't want or need that drama in my life.
I have an incredibly low tolerance level for B.S., drama and head games. I would much rather stay single than to have to deal with any of that in my life.
I am not materialistic at all. I would much rather collect memories than possesions. You can't take these things with you when you're gone anyways.
I Love pets even though I don't have any at the moment. I am much more of a dog person than a cat person but if you own pitbulls I am so not interested. You can keep your hate mail to yourself. The last time I checked this was a free country where you are allowed to speak your opinion.
I work at a job that I truly enjoy but I work to live not live to work. A healthy work-life balance if very important to me.
I am not pretentious at all. I have reached a point in my life where I no longer find it necessay to try to impress anyone. If you like me the way I am, that's great. If you don't, that's your loss. I am who I say I am. What you see is exactly what you get. As real as they get.
I have never been on and never will be on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or any other of these social networking websites. It's bad enough that I'm on POF. But when you're not into the bar scene, I guess this is where one needs to come to meet that special someone these days.
I have never actually taken a selfie. This must be a generational thing or something. I find all these bathroom mirror selfies quite tacky. Especially the public washroom ones. What has to be going through your mind to think this is a good place to take a picture of yourself?
Why does dating these days have to be so complicated? It should be easy enough to find somebody where you enjoy each others company, somebody you are attracted to and somebody you have things in common with and then just let things progress at a natural pace. Seems simple enough doesn't it?
So you might be asking what I'm looking for. There are only 3 things that are absolutely carved in stone.
First you must be a non-smoker. I have tried to get over this in the past, but if I can't bring myself to kiss you, it simply isn't going to work. Nothing worse than tasting and smelling like an ashtray.
Second you must not do drugs of any kind other than those prescribed to you by a doctor. That includes all you pot-heads out there who don't think marajuana is a drug. So if you've answered NO to the question "do you do drugs", but then list 420 as one of your interests, trust me I am so not interested. If you are high on life, you don't need that crap. Also if you need to drink excessively or get drunk to have fun, we won't get along at all.
Last but not least, please take pride in your appearance and have a slim to average build. I don't mention this to offend anybody, but I am just not attracted to bigger women.
Some of the things I value most in a relationship are honesty, integrity, loyalty, mutual respect and open communication to go along with a great sense of humor.
I am not looking for anything super serious right away. Lets just meet and have lots of fun getting to know one another and then see where things go from there. No pressure - just fun.
If any of the above has appealed to you and you would like to get to know me better, don't be shy and send me a quick message. What have you got to lose.
Thanks for taking the time to read my profile. While I appreciate every message I get. If I don't respond, I just didn't see a connection between us. Please don't take it personally.
