I’m seeking a sweet lady between 27-47 years of age. I’m 6ft.0in. tall and I weigh a fit/trim/muscular 215lbs. I’m 41 years of age and I’m heterosexual. I’ve been divorced for 2 years. I live in Surrey, BC, Canada. I’m presently entering into my 3rd career change. I’m enrolling in college to study “Business Administration/Management”. I have brown hair and brown eyes. I’m told I am handsome. I have a great sense of humour and I’m a well-liked individual among my peers. I’m not tattooed or pierced anywhere, but I’m definitely okay with ladies having adornments on their bodies. I’m a smoker (trying to quit - lol). I love karaoke singing, playing my guitar, reading, listening to music (usually Classic Rock), and hiking. I’m very easygoing and I love to engage in deep conversations with people about almost any topic. I’m not an egotistical — God’s gift to women/think I’m Brad Pitt — type of guy either. I concentrate on sharing my positive, strong points. I’m looking for a lady who has a sense of humour, but is also responsible for her life. I want a real hook-in friendship - and hopefully more. I‘ve tried to develop relationships with ladies in the past couple of years. It seems as though I’ve been a good “sounding board” for some women I’ve met. I’m an empathic individual and show care for people. Unfortunately, this means I‘ve been a magnet for people with many problems in their lives. I have then become a shoulder to cry on, and not much else. I don’t mind mutually sharing problems with a lady, as long as we both try to be positive. I don’t like to sound rude, but I’m tired of getting to know some ladies in the past, and then find out they were just taking advantage of my emotions and using me as a “pseudo-therapist”, and sometimes for money. So, if you’re honest and “straight-up”, send me an e-mail. I hope this sounds honest, because this is who I am – take it or leave it. My positives: I’m intelligent, savvy, and have a sense of humour that’s very zany and silly. I am decent looking (muscular/trim). I’m a focussed individual when I’m in my “groove”, but I do love to have fun. I’m a great conversationalist and I do enjoy, and prefer to associate with, uplifting people. Finally, let’s not take life too seriously. The world’s crazy enough already. So, whaddya think? Give me a try? I don’t bite.
I think just going out for coffee. My reasoning: Bright lights to see the other; especially for eye contact. Also, cheaper than a meal (thinking realistically; budgetary concerns), in case the meeting doesn't work out. Also, easier to cut short if things really don't work out. Finally; allows quieter conversation where chatting is easier and more comfortable. After all, this is a first impression meeting. No need to impress with expensive, pretentious, wining and dining(for me, anyways). This stuff can happen later, if there is any chemistry between us. And, no, I'm not a cheapskate, quite the opposite.
