In keeping with the ideas of the philosophy of the Secret, I feel that asking for what one wants is paramount to getting it. Therefore you will see things that I do want, and not necessarily things I do not want in this profile. There is something to be said for positive thinking.
First of all, I want my best friend. I am a single white male who enjoys a variety of interests. Being single, I am also looking for that special someone to share the good and bad times with. I am always looking for a new friend, and who knows, maybe that new friend might be the one. This is why I have chosen Dating in the "I am looking for" section.
I am old fashioned in a lot of respects, but am also in tune with the current times. I believe in Chivalry and yet also believe in respecting others. I feel that relationships should be give and take and not just one taking and the other one giving.
I do have a lot of interests as shown above. I do things in the winter and the summer although I much prefer the tempered weather than the extreme cold or hot weather. I feel that people should have same interests as well as different interests that people can grow together with. Maybe you can involve yourself in some of mine and I can develop an interest in some of yours. No, I will not jump out of a perfectly good airplane...Chute or no chute.
There are a lot of things I have not done yet, and would love to do, but do not wish to do them alone. Some more traveling is one of them and going on a cruise is another.
The kinds of people that I would like in my life are....
1) non-smokers 2) Non, or social drinkers 3) Persons without control issues
4) Those that value spending time with others more than a one night stand
5) Communication and the ability to hold a conversation. 6) Those that know the meaning of honesty
7) People that like board or card games rather than head games
8) People more interested in the person and who they are and what they stand for rather than how much they make, or have
9) People that do not want to have another daddy.
10)People who feel that a relationship is based on a friendship first and needs to be built from there
11) Those that believe in unconditional acceptance
12) People that believe in Communication, Compassion, Commitment, Trust, and the basic morals that
ALL individuals SHOULD have
13) People that like to have physical intimacy...Cuddling, holding hands, etc
If you have gotten this far, then maybe there is a chance we could see what happens. I have a great sense of humor, although sometimes warped when I get to know you. I am looking for longevity and not a booty call, nor am I looking for someone that is immature or into head games. I like to chat, but much prefer yahoo and like to chat on the phone when both are comfortable. I feel the human voice can say a lot about a person when you take into account voice inflections.
I am a firm believer in that you cannot get something unless you ask for it, and therefore I do ask for a good friend that could maybe turn into more in time.

I do not think that the first meeting is actually a date. I feel it is a get to know you and therefore not considered a date. So as a result, going for a beverage, Wings, or a game of pool somewhere could be appropriate. If at that time the two people wanted to continue, then a decision could be made.
I am a firm believer in communicating with the other person, so whatever we both would decide would be a good first date. Anything from a walk in the park, a Sunday brunch, a drive in the country with a stop at a country cafe, a movie, etc. The choices are endless and is something that both would have to contemplate.
Good luck to everyone in their search and I really appreciate all the nicer people I have met on this site. To the people that only claim to be real...get a life and try and act real. Reality, honesty and many other traits I have mentioned are crucial to a real relationship.
