I have found who I was looking for - so I am only here now for the forumns.......sorry ladies, you should have moved faster!!!
I am not married nor do I have any g/f's. I am not after sex [only] or one-nite stands nor a casual relationship. I seek a Monogamous LTR. I have a job, vehicles, my own place, and I pay my own bills and am not after what money you have. I also do not seek a Barbie doll or the perfect body, in fact I would pass that by for a simple plain country gal, who to me is infinitely more attractive.
I'm a DWM, 6ft 215lbs, broad shoulders, football player build, dark brn hair eyes. I've been married once & have a 21yo daughter whom I got custody of during the divorce & raised her by myself since she was 3. I do not want to have any more children of my own, but if you have them that is great!
I am educated, and make my living as an IT Consultant and also own a small Home Improvement business. I drive a big Dodge Ram 4x4 pickup, a convertable Thunderbird, and a boat ( the last on the water mainly ).
I am a great animal lover, I have 4 dogs, 2 cats! I'd love to have an Animal Rescue Sanctuary, or a ranch or something like it! I have property in the mountains of N. Ga and go there often. I enjoy the peace and serenity of the forests and of untouched nature.
My Music is Country, Classic Rock-n-Roll, Classical/Symphony, New Orleans Jazz, 40/50/60's Big Band, Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis, and so on!
I dont do RAP/Hip-Hop or similar, frankly I'd rather listen to the toilet flush.
I enjoy lots of reading, Tolkien, Mark Twain, Harry Potter, DUNE, plus Historical non-fiction, Knights Templar, European Dynastic History, Early Christian & Roman History, The Crusades, and I enjoy museums, bookstores, art galleries ( Thomas Kincaid, S. Dali, Egyptian ) , NASCAR, flea markets, the outdoors, springs & rivers, tubing, fishing, boating, camping, movies, the American West, playing piano, home improvement, horses, ranches, all things SciFi, the mountains, country living, & log cabins.
I canoe alot, and trail ride on my 12-speed often, usually 10-20 miles.
I am a big kid who refuses to grow up, so if your looking for some aloof, stoic, reserved, corporate stuffed shirt-n-tie sunday-school superintedant wall-street type, then you're at the wrong profile.......
Romantically I enjoy lots of physical contact, touching, caressing, cuddling, snuggling, Sunday Naps together, & PDA's! Kind of odd for a guy, but hey its me. I believe that a Man should Adore & Love his Mate all her life, or at least all of his!
I'm a Rescuer/Protector/Giver/Champion type personality, & I usually champion the underdog, the helpless, & the innocent. I'm the guy stopping traffic in the street to help a turtle across, I bring home every stray I find, I raised my daughters best friend as my own for 4yrs as she had no family.
I am a monogomous person and only date 1 person at a time and expect the same.
Also, I see no attraction in the combination of sand, oil, heat, sweat, and saltwater. I do enjoy boating, swimming, snorkeling and going to the islands and such, but laying about on the sand broiling in the sun soaked in oil and sweat is not my idea of a good time.
Oh, I am not a morning person. x2.
Unlike most men I am not that hung up on looks, and I especially do not go for the flashy, glitz-n-glamor types. Many men judge a woman by her T&A, but not this guy. I do really like long hair, & if its long DARK or Red hair, wow big points! But as long as you've GOT hair, then we're OK ! I'm a sucker for dark eyes too, but again as long as you have them and they are not yellow or something, we're good!
HT/WT proportionate is really all I ask in the physical dept; you dont have to be thin, slender, slim or athletic, nor chesty or gorgeous, but you must not be overweight. A FEW extra pounds is ok. Thats like 10 or 15lbs ladies, not 50.
I think that I'd be best matched to a woman who, outside of work, is most comfortable in jeans, shorts, t-shirts, blouses, etc., someone who likes flea-markets as well as Malls, who prefers the Country to the City, is not afraid to get dirty, & someone who is comfortable without her makeup.
Someone who enjoys animals & the outdoors would be nice. Someone sweet, kind, caring, loyal & uncomplicated, with no drama in their lives [ had enough of that]. Someone spiritual but not religous.
It would be great if you were over the mosquitos, heat, traffic & people & had a desire to move & live in the mountains, the country, or somewhere less populated & cooler.
***** Deal-Killer Addendum *********
People who fall into the below categories I prefer to avoid like the Bubonic Plague, so if this is you please shoo yourself away:
 PLEASE no responses from women with male business partners, male workout partners, male roommates, etc. And most certainly no women in contact with ex-lovers or ex-husbands unless there are children involved. I am looking for someone emotionally stable , not self-absorbed women who think it is oh-so cosmopolitan to have a train of single men ( from failed relationships or otherwise ) in her daily personal life.
And please spare me the dysfunctional defensive retorts about how this is OK and "I" am just insecure. I am not insecure at all, I'm just not stupid!
 NO POWER DATERS. I dont "sample women" like I am at a buffet by dating multiple people at a time and expect the same in return.
 Not looking for Material Girls or those who are Shallow & Pretentious (you would have to lobotomize me first). Everyone enjoys nice things & going to far-away places, me as well, but if you MUST have them in order to be happy or attracted to someone, then you really are twisted, and its no wonder you're single, but cheer up maybe you'll find a good shrink in the next profile!
 And if you're a Flaming Liberal, or some other psychotic extreme, like a Vegetarian, a Polyamorist, a Pentecostal/Evangelical, a Feminist, if you're Politically Correct, obsessive about your Career, if you have been kidnapped by Space Aliens, seen Elvis, or if you're a Rosie O'Donnel/Obama/Jesse Jackson/LGBT type admirer, I doubt we will get along, because you need more than love, you need a therapist!
