*HEY, after reading SO, many profiles- got teeth, shower, nice clothes; don't drink, drug, smoke or hit you; open doors, help with chairs. There are no Ex's, mystery kids or 'paperwork' on this end. 12yrs clean and sober.*
It's just me. And I trust you will be you.
Been on this site forever now, met a few, had the sense to realize that we were better off as friends. Usually too far away to make it work.
Strange thing: this love and relationship thing... My belief is that it should be a synergystic growth for both parties- the sum of the whole being bigger than the parts.
YOU need to know that I am who and what I say. Yes, fact IS better than fiction.
And a lucky girl you would be to land me! Many have tried, but it needs to be REAL for both of us, and I would rather part as friends than live a lie. Yes, like most guys, I am a little territorial and stand-offish with some at first, then I loosen up. Yet, still cautious. Also, a goofus and a know-it-all, sometimes, too. But I admit it.
Some would say that I have it all- except a nice girl by my side. Maybe I am the apple at the top of the tree?
I see nice girls with real dorks all the time and just wonder what their motivation is... probably issues I want no part of, as usual with other people. We all have baggage...
WE just need the time, devotion, and sincerity that we are all looking for, to make a relationship work.
Ol' JohnBe here's a 'Recovering Hippie'- that pretty much says it all. Tho, I still and always will, LOVE my music amd appreciate art. And believe in freedom and the pursuit of happiness. I am ever so gainfully self-employed.
In need of a friend, confidante, lover, helper(I pay well, and the percs are amazing!), and a travel companion- someone to talk to and share in this wonderful lifestyle I have created for myself... It's like living an adventure.
I go to SO MANY really cool places! It would be a pleasure to share all these cool places with you.
The strain of 'long distance' relationships gets to be too much. Like, we live within 25 miles of each other. Any longer of a distance just takes too much time for us driving rurally. So the preference is for someone local(or soon 2b), HAVING YOUR OWN CAR(A+) and home(A) and security(A+)(to buy gas would be nice), though none are absolute requirements. Though it does narrow the playing field a great deal...
It would also be nice if you are in good physical shape. I am looking for a companion who can keep up with me.
My work is enjoyable and diverse, so it seems as though there is always some sort of fun going on. Every moment spent happy is a treasure. Yes, I like what I do. My heart is in it. And I make plenty of money, so I do what I want when I want. Mostly everything is on me, anyways. Thing is that I am usually doing it alone. And that is getting old. Are you willing and ready to have an adventure?
Recently, I went to California, again, and saw the coast; Nevada and went to many different hot springs, saw some movies, did some rockhounding and metal detecting, and stopped off in Chicago on the way home and saw the Sox and picked up another brand new pinball machine. Among many other things.
(to save YOU time and make things easier)
Turn offs- include:
smoking- makes very nice people undesirable to me- disappointed I've had to turn down desirable dates due to this. Will Consider vapes, tho
pick an order, as they all rank about the same. Life is just too short to fake it.
TURN-ON's are up in the ever incomplete 'interests' list. I love pets, too, they are ALL cute. They teach us how to love.
And I still can't believe that nobody else listens to 3WK Classic Underground Radio- music as art??? What's UP with that??? I am also an instigator; what can I say?
After the usual emails and phone calls: meet in a public place (where YOU won't 'try anything' on me, unless I let you)- or one of our local haunts- crystal mine, recovery meeting, restaurant, thrift store, auction, movie, baseball game, Steelers game(I try for at least one/yr this year its a home game in Pittsburgh), or a place of our choosing, etc.., Playing Pinball!!! Conversation, hopefully not a staring contest, food, (free food! its on me! unless you insist) Maybe, even a second date.... Oh yeah.., in case you haven't guessed- I reserve the right to be, can and will be, SILLY, for no apparent reason, at any time, and expect the same from you!! heeeng hoooong hoooong
