I am a single father of a son still living with me. I am a John Candy looking sort of guy with a sense of humor just as big. I am not even close to a Brad Pitt look alike, I do not have money like Bill Gates nor a body like Arnold S. I do however know how to treat a lady like a lady, flowers for no reason at all, calling to say I love you just cuz, opening doors.
I like to read, I listen to all sorts of music, I can cook very well,I like to ride bikes with my son occasionally, go to concerts and of course the usual beach thing. I like to spoil my other half just because I enjoy making her happy and have been told I give good massages. I really enjoy just sitting inside with a good cup of coffee watching the rain pour down, I am totally honest and hide nothing, I have nothing to hide anyway. I like some sports, shooting pool, playing darts, playing in the snow and just being silly sometimes.
I try not to be too serious all the time, but I can be totally serious when necessary. I don't like it when on a date her cell phone keeps going off and she takes the call, I'll just cut it short at that point. My feelings are not easily hurt and I understand I am not for everyone so if we meet and I don't her from you again I get it.
I believe honesty and communication are vital to a long and lasting relationship as well as compatibility. I am not a needy or clingy person so giving space is not at all that difficult, I am an accepting person and don't prejudge. I like to show my affection by hugging, holding hands, both at home and in public, kissing and holding her close.
I don't like the mind games or all that B.S, life is way too short for that, so if you're still pining away over an ex or carrying a torch for them, move along I have no time for that. I rarely seem to have much difficulty talking to people but I do get a bit tongue tied when meeting for the first time but get past it soon afterward.I'm looking to find someone that doesn't take life too seriously either, someone that can laugh at herself, as I can myself, someone that is a believer in a give and take relationship and is willing to put in some effort to make it a fun and lasting time. Someone that has her own opinions and is strong willed, that will share her thoughts and ideas is nice.
Hopefully she will be as comfortable kicking back in casual clothes or dressing up, I don't dance much but if the occasion should arise it would be nice if we could just go out and have a great time. Some similar interests are important but we need not share all interests, that way we retain some sense of individuality. I have had the needy and clingy type that also needs constant reassurance and praise and am not looking for that again. I have however recently began a "transformation" in that I have begun taking working out to get in better shape much more serious. I have a ways to go and am a work in progress but I have my eye on the goal and have the eye of the tiger..hehe.
I do give the kudos and props when the situation comes around and a good pat on the back is something I'm not above giving, lets people know they did well and are appreciated. Also, if anyone wants to make a new friend feel free to drop me a line and maybe we can each gain a new good friend.
----///--\\\---Or who may be suffering/struggling from it now
Well a meeting in a nice public place in a relaxing atmosphere is a good first way to meet. But a first "date" would depend on her interests and likes, once I know those it makes it much easier to decide on a good first date.
Usually though I like to take them to the grocery store to help me pick fresh fruit or to the car wash so she can wash my truck inside and out. A dude ranch is a good time too, nothing like a good day a calf ropin'.
But if we can arrange to meet on the weekend she can help me with my community service, geez, the cops have no sense of humor when it comes to staggering into the station, putting your empty Corona bottle on the counter and asking for a Whopper with cheese, fries and another cold one, lighten up guys.
