Please read my profile as I am more than a simple picture. If you don't share a picture on here, please don't message me. If your profile says you are looking to date but not for anything serious, please pass me by. I'm soooo over dating, but not giving up yet.
Not looking for:
-A man with more "girlfriends" than myself.
-Someone who can't put their phone down even when we are together.
-A man that checks out every chick (or any) that walks 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 20 something year old, half naked waitresses, don't date women in their forties, date my daughter's friends, or YOUR daughter's friends....
-If you are a Facebook creeper, no thanks.
-If social media is more important than a person and relationship. Stick to your virtual life, leave realists alone.
OK, rant over. Looking for a man, not a boy.
Not interested in married, separated or swingers. Also not a fan of those who spend their life watching tv, movies or playing video game. I'm interested in actively living! Not to say watching a movie on the couch together is out of the question. I don't want a television to be the focus of my life.
Looking for a honest, genuine gentleman with integrity that I can respect. I prefer someone with an education as well as common sense. I am attracted to a fit physique and great smile. Prefer a man a bit taller than myself that exudes class, intelligence and originality.
Currently in my fourth year of pursuing my bachelors while working with dementia and hospice clients. On line conversation is where I'm willing to learn about you before scheduling a meet n greet. Chatting on the phone can wait until interest has been established, not a fan of small talk and you are probably not the first guy on a singles site to ask for my number today.... My life is full, satisfying, challenging and rewarding. I am not lonely or desperate or bored. Looking for a man to complement my life, eventually.... Not today, tonight or tomorrow. Dudes need to slow their roll!!
I am ultimately looking for my other half, not a part-time boyfriend or a collection. I believe in monogamy. Those whose lives are completely full and only available on alternating weekends are not what I desire. While my life is also full, I do have the ability to rearrange my schedule if one day I meet that special one.
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 ;)
*If you do not have a job, maybe dating should be put on a back burner at the moment..... Just a thought.
**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.
