Please read my profile as I am more than a simple picture. If you don't share a picture here, please don't message me.
Not looking for:
-A man with more "girlfriends" than myself.
-Someone who can't put their phone down.
-A man that checks out every chick (or any) that walk by when we are out together. If you are not interested in who you are WITH, don't go out with them. If you are interested in EVERYONE, go out with your boyfriends.
-If you are interested in females in their 20's, or half naked waitresses, don't date women in their forties, date your child's friends.
Looking for a honest, genuine gentleman with integrity, one that I can respect. I prefer someone with some education as well as common sense. I am attracted to a fairly fit physique and great smile.
Chatting on the phone can wait until interest has been established. You are probably not the first guy on a singles site to ask for my number today.... However, you probably didn't read my profile and will ask anyway:/
My life is full, satisfying, challenging and rewarding. I am not lonely, desperate or bored. I am ultimately looking for my other half, not a part-time boyfriend or a collection. However, I've come to believe friends first is very important. I believe in monogamy and mutual respect. Those whose lives are completely full and only available on alternating weekends are not what I desire.
Traits I appreciate and also posses:
Integrity: If you say something, you stand by your word, giving what you say value.
Active parent in a child's life: Knowing what is truly important, as people will come and go in life, but your kids are yours until death do you part.
Your life is in order: You make logical, educated, beneficial and forward moving decisions.
You are comfortable in your own skin: Don't need to put on a show, you can be you, real, down to earth. The real you eventually surfaces.
Things work their way out: If we all are breathing and no one is bleeding, no need to over-react.
You treat others the way you want to be treated...
The humor you use is not at the expense of others, insulting or belittling others is not humorous....
Coffee shops are a great start, a cold beer on a patio or a glass of wine by a fireplace would also be fabulous. Stimulating conversation is always pleasant....
I do not climb 14'ers, run marathons, ski or board ;)
*Nice guys do NOT finish last. We all like nice guys. If you are finishing last, there is a reason. If you are put in the friend zone, its not because you are too nice, its because there is not an attraction, physically, mentally, emotionally, financially. There IS a reason and its not because of your nice factor ;)
We all have a different idea of what is attractive to us.
