***HEY, Since it seems to matter- after reading SO... many... profiles... I got teeth, shower, have nice clothes, don't drink, smoke or hit you. There are no Ex's, mystery kids or paperwork on this end.***
Just me. OK??? 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.
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 stand-offish with some at first, then I loosen up. 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 LOVE my music amd appreciate art. And believe in freedom and the pursuit of happiness. I am 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 these places with you.
The strain of 'long distance' relationships gets to be too much. So the preference is for someone local(or soon 2b), having your own car(A+) and home(A) and security(A+) would be nice, though none are requirements.
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 Oregon 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 Kansas on the way home and toured the salt mine. Among many other things.
(to save you time)
Turn offs- include:
pick an order, as they all rank about the same. I am honest and have no room for any of that. Life is too short
Turn-ons are up in the incomplete 'interests' list. I like pets, too, cute or not. Children are not pets- they are people, but still cute but I can really only stand them in small doses- as in- not around all the time.
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...
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, Steelers game(I try for at least one/yr this year its arlington(shouldn't that be capital "A", oh that's right I AM one of those obnoxious STEELERS fans)), or a place of our choosing, etc.., 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, and will be, SILLY, for no apparent reason, at any time, and expect the same from you!! heeeng hoooong hoooong
