Good Day Ladies,
BTW, my profile says i am rehabbing and settling an injury from being Electrocuted!! YES, ELECTROCUTED !! while working as a maintenance director at a 59 room Assisted Living and Alzheimers unit in Smyrna, Ga. I have had 2 different surgeries to repair the damage done ! My actual PT sessions are over, I must do exercises everyday for my personal rehab, Am out of the sling, will be forever limited due to some permanent damage... but its still attached...AND I AM ALIVE !! :0) And it doesnt stop me from doing and living..I have a better perspective than most..on what I want from life now!! :0)
Born and raised in SE Michigan in farm country by 2 great loving, caring, engaged, fabulous parents that were both from the depression era and WWII.. Raised with old fashioned values and thinking.. I have adapted to modern ways, though i an a firm believer that some of them aren't as great as some of the old ways and beliefs... kinda like all this new age pop psychology crap.!!!
Married and divorced only once with a female from back home, have been unanniversaried for almost 14 years now.. Had and have no children.. just didn't happen..have been told by my female friends that i would've bee a good dad.. thier words here, certainly not mine.. I like kids, have several adopted nephews and nieces, And I am a firm believer that you should be a parent and not their best friend.. more of that pop psycho crap..
I am ME!.. Honest to a fault, I tell it like and how it is, Very Much a Straight Shooter per se, I feel that honesty is the best policy, therefore, don't tell a lie and you won't get caught in one!! I love and know who I have become, compassionate, caring, believer of integrity and character, honesty and truthiness, good or bad.. I am comfortable in my own skin.. VERY MUCH ECLECTIC.. One of a kind as my Mom says.. Thank God !! :0) I can be and have handled being alone, but not a fan of the loneliness thing..I never did the rebound marriage..wheeeewwww.. thank my lucky stars and I am looking for my last first date and KISS.. And I won't just SETTLE, to solve the loneliness issue.. AND, with no selfish bones in my body, If you are a self centered, selfish, It's all about me, OR think you are a "PRINCESS" needing to be put on a pedestal, Please Pass Me BY..!! Now, If I think and you become worthy enough to be put on my own pedestal by ME, thats an entirely different matter.!! :0)
I am practical, not materialistic,selfless, not selfish, have always given more than received.. a give as good as it gets and then some kinda guy, COMMON SENSE goes a long way with me, not just book smarts, I care about those in my inner realm, wear my heart on my sleeve way too often, have been hurt in the world of love before, but not giving up kinda guy.. I am working on family geneology and history before those who remember are departed from us forever !!
I am looking for THE ONE, that compliments me, yin to my yang, so to speak.. As I already know who I am, and at this age, I am completely comfortable with myself.. I also am a touchy, feely, passionate, warm hearted, verbal kinda guy..I definitely connect better with those type of like minded females.. OK, enough warm and fuzzy here..lol..lol..
About communication.. I can transmit my thoughts and feeling with clarity and sense, I am glad that I am a very good conversationalist and listener.. With Me, "don't ask the question, if you are afraid of hearing the answer".. I can hold any and all conversations with you as needed, firm believer in giving my opinion if YOU ask for it!! Not afraid to talk about any and all subjects necessary that life and love throw at us.. You will know exactly how I feel, and what I want and need from you and life and love.. Well read and love to read, I have a huge collection of books.. Enjoy eating out but also love to stay in and cook/grille out.. Love spicy, flavorful foods, Sushi, Japanese, Chines, THAI, American, Mexican, Mediterranian, Steak and veggies on the grille.. I can hold my own in the kitchen, would enjoy your company helping and or being helped..:0) Love finding those little hole in the walls, local dives with great food..and ambience.. I am a liquor over a beer drinker, tho I can drink an ice cold beer on a hot sunny dayjust fine..Love certain wines, a great Pinot Noir, Whites, and just dig a fabulous German Riesling..
I should clealy state that I am not PC, Not a fan of bunny or tree huggers, or friends of PETA.. Unless you believe as I that it stands for People Eating Tasty Animals..:0) Therefore, I consider myself an Independant, somewhat Libertarian, conservative, Huge Believer in the Constitution and Bill of Rights, especially, the 2nd one.. and not a current fan of the current administration or diehard liberals in general..Just Saying!! Also ought to mention, not a huge fan of cats, tolerance is the operative word, allergic is another, DOGS RULE!!
I feel this is a really good start to who I am and what makes me tick.. Don't be afraid to say HI.. WE all have to begin here at some point.. :0)
Last point here, I DO NOT want to become your email buddy, WE are ALL ADULTS here, so after a few responses, I really want to talk over the phone and meet IF WE so desire.. 2 way street here... I am not one to email here forever.. Or not meet.. WE are all adults here, so lets act like it!!
POF UPDATE: I will respond to everyone that sends me a message, It doesn't take long to type a reply..As I think it is RUDE.. not to respond, this being the way I was raised. If you have taken the time to write (and time being precious) me, then you deserve a response. And to those I write to, a response should be returned also. What has happened to being POLITE and RESPECTFUL, as our parents taught us!! To those of you too good to write back and think your too good to do so or even read the persons commo to you...SHAME on you!! Just remember, KARMA is a BEEEYATCH !!
**God Bless our troops, anyone that wears a uniform and those that go IN HARMS WAY.. to defend our constitution, liberties and freedoms..and thier families and loved ones also..
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
NOTE* I was a social smoker on and off for years, now having quit cold turkey, haven't had one in almost 2 years..YAY! So dear lady, if you contact me and you smoke, just know that if you want anything to go anywhere, I WILL ask you to quit..Better for the both of us!! I lost my father to smoking almost 20 years ago.. Now, if A really great cuban cigar passes my nose, I just may have to take in a puff or three..lol..lol..
I AM COMFORTABLE, in my own skin...but this can be a nerve wracking moment for one or both parties... WE do a greet and meet 1st, Then if we hit it off, the "animal magnetism" is there.. we can decide from there... :0) Then we can do whatever our hearts desire... I am not looking for hookups or booty calls or one night stands!!... Just someone that could be interested in me and care about who I am...and give me insight to moving back...If we hit it off and that goofy feeling in the pits of our stomach and heart.. called "Chemistry" arises, then all the better... Besides, a great relationship has to start with a first date, then more time together I really have no problem committing to a long term relationship with the right lady!! :0)
