Please....No picture, No response.
Phins Up! (Parrot Head cry). I hope everyone is enjoying the Summer. Much cooler than last year.
Let's see: Q. Who am I? Where have I been? Where am I going? What do I do?
A.: Insane. Hell. Crazy. As little as possible :) Want to come along for the ride?
George Carlin once said becoming happy through material possessions is like taping sandwiches to your body to stop being hungry. The same thing with trying to find someone. Happiness has to come from within. I see many pictures of women frowning. That is indicative of an unhappy life. You can find others or other things to brighten your day, but your life-long happiness is internal, not external. I don't respond to those wishing me to make you whole or well. I can only enhance your life, not bring meaning to it.
I am preparing to undergo Bariatric Gastric Sleeve surgery, so I may be unavailable for a while. Drastic times call for drastic measures. I have done the Cambridge diet, Atkin's, Hollywood, Weight Watchers. I have ran 10 miles a day, gymnasium, health clubs, Racquetball. SO...I went to a seminar at the Bariatric Center of KC. This is the best answer for me.
I just moved to Kansas after living in Florida for 1.5 years, and California for 51 years. I have been consulting as an Electronics / RF Engineering Consultant. I have been working since I was 16 years old. I hate down-times, although I am not a workaholic. I consider myself conservative but middle of the road. Some issues I am to the right, some to the left, some in the middle. I don't follow the party line. I don't mind discussing the issues. Everyone has a right to their beliefs and we can "agree to disagree". As long as you don't try to change me, I won't try to change you.
Yes, I am a Christian. I don't go around screaming it at the top of my lungs. I believe in the song "They will know we are Christians by our love". If you profess to believe in John 3:16 then continue on through John 3:17. I am a Child of God. I don't particularly care what Religion you are as long as you are Spiritual. If you don't understand the difference, look it up.
I grew up in the 60's and 70's. I am not into Rap, Reggae, Hip-Hop or Country. I prefer Classic Rock or Jazz (E.L.O., ZZTop, Queen, etc.). I played trumpet and sang Bass for a while. I have a well-rounded education, self-made Engineer and had a great family with values. I can talk about a lot of things or just remain quiet and listen. I tend to prefer small, intimate groups and friends. I can enjoy a BBQ or a day at the museum. I enjoy going to baseball / football games as well. A stock car race or Disneyland / Disneyworld once in a while is good.
I enjoy traveling, fishing, hanging out by the lake, indoors, outdoors. I've been to seven countries (Mexico, Virgin Islands, Canada, Taiwan, France, Israel, Romania) and, according to Travel Advisor, about 550 cities in the USA. I would LOVE to go back to California and be near my beach, desert and mountains. In this economy, that isn't going to happen anytime soon unless I win the Power Ball. I like sitting outside on the porch of a lake or mountain cabin, drinking morning coffee and taking it all in with those who are with me. Or, going down to the local restaurant for breakfast. I have been snow skiing, water skiing, surfing, power boating / racing, fishing, tubing, camping, hiking, biking.
I am good with my hands and my mind. I am good at DIY. I don't do gardening or shopping well, but I will go. I enjoy ballroom dance but I am rusty and I am taking lessons again. I do know how to cook, iron, wash, etc. I am not cut out as a total houseboy, however. I prefer to share responsibilities, not take them all on or have them piled on me.
We all have our "Wish List". I'm not looking for Twiggy, or a Model, nor Pamela Anderson. I'm a Realist. I don't want "Some young Thing". It's not my style. In fact, I like women about my age range. I like women who are at least clean. You can wear a classy dress, or blue jeans as long as they are clean. I prefer those who intelligent, well-educated and/or in general are able to keep a conversation going. The taller the better. I don't mind if you smoke occasionally, just not drugs or a lot of alcohol. Anything else is open.
What I dis-like:
If you play games or really don't intend to meet or talk, be honest with me and yourself and don't inquire or respond. No cheaters, serial daters, looking for a Sugar Daddy (I don't have the income for it to begin with), etc.
PLEASE no one with male issues / co-dependencies / excessive baggage (we all come with SOME, just not a LOT). If you are overly-opinionated, controlling, have to have things your way, etc. please move on.
I don't tolerate dis-respect or co-dependent behavior. I respect others and do not use every other word that starts with the letter "F". That's my upbringing. I don't like being around others who do either. That is a deal breaker. This also applies to your kids if you have any.
I don’t ride motorcycles, and I don’t frequent biker bars. I am not your "Bad Boy". If you want a bad boy go contact Jesse James. If I ever did ride a bike it would be full chaps and a helmet. I don’t own a yacht nor do I intend to. I don’t like body mutilation like piercings of the nose, tongue, lip, tattoos, etc.
Women with Cigars. Yes, there are women on here with pictures smoking them. I don't like the guys doing it, so I'm not into your "free-will" or fetish of it.
Women who use the "Meet Me" function. None of you respond if I get a message, so please don't.
