I'm honest. I'm bald and a little over weight. In working on the weight right now by going to the gym five days a week. I have been a gym guy my entire life, but dislocated my shoulder last summer which prevented me from going to the gym for a while. Since my routine was disrupted I got a little lax on eating habits and put some weight on. Funny, I always eat healthy when I am gym bound but not so much when I am not. It really should be the opposite but that's just the way it is. Now for the hair; there is nothing I can do about that. I hear that some women say they don't care about hair BUT I have not met one. Actually it seems to me that most women will not lower their standards. I'm not saying they should but get real. Everyone slowly gets old and it's not the looks that are important but what's inside; honesty, loyalty, funny, good communicator, kindness, living, passionate, etc... This is the hard part to see because it takes time to see that stuff. So everyone I have ever met for coffee, who have judged me on first appearances and first impressions and never took any chance to meet for a second date, good riddance, lol. Said the old fat bald guy, lol.
I'm very affectionate. I like to hold hands in public. I am a big hugger. Absolutely love hugging, kissing, playing, cuddling, goofing around, and doing things for the woman in my life. My parents set an incredible example, and have been happily married for nearly 50 years.
I'm a full time dad. I have an 11 yr old boy who is bilingual French and English. I have joint custody, but primary care, in other words he lives with me full time, and visits his mom at Christmas and summer vacation in Ottawa. His mother and I get along greatly. She is now married to another great man but actually stays at my home when she comes to visit our son. Some people may think that's crazy or inappropriate but it is what it is; easiest for our son, cheaper than hotels, and not an issue for us. Would that change if I was in a relationship? Probably.
I'm employed. I have been working in the same field for plus 25 years. I drive a SUV and have a house in Alberta and one in Winnipeg. I didn't say I own because it's the bank who owns then for now, lol.
I am not someone who likes conflict, who does hey. Actually some people; believe it or not. I will not yell or like people who yell. If I am angered or upset, I will take a few minutes to calm down and think about what I need to say so that I don't esculate the situation. I will actively listen to the others points. I may try to fix things; I am a man after all, lol, but recognize venting and will try to understand what the other is feeling vice always looking for a solution.
I am not lazy, nor do I like lazy people. If you are lazy, it will not work between us. I am surrounded by a type personalities and people who are drive to success. It's okay to have a lazy day and just max relax, but not expect me to do it all. I am one for sharing the household duties. I do everything as a single parent; all the cooking, dishes, laundry, vacuuming, cleaning bathrooms, sweeping, yard work, etc... If we get together, this will be shared. I will not be your maid. Likewise I do not need a maid. I want a friend, a companion, a lover, a confidant, a partner, someone to talk to, someone to share life's experiences with. Here is some more honesty... I love making love and am extremely passionate. I'm more if a morning person since I am crazy busy everyday and thus tired at the end of it. But I will never say no to the woman in my life at any time of the day, lol.
First impressions are just that; first impressions. You are trying to determine if you are physically attracted to person whom you have just met, if the person has similar values, if you want to invest more time in getting to know that person or not. It's not easy. If you are truly looking for a relationship, you need to get past first impressions and have a second or third date. So all I ask is that you give (US) an honest oppertunity get to know one another so that (WE) can live happily ever after together forever and ever. If you are not able to do that, please do not contact me.
