I'm looking for someone who enjoys the simple things in life and who isn't a drama queen.
I'm willing to sweat for you. I want to treat you like gold. I expect the same in return.
Compatibility is key and part of the alchemy of attraction is laughter.
Deal breakers for me: You don't care about the environment in active ways (examples: you like "quadding" or 4x4'ing, you don't care to recycle or reduce your footprint in any way), you don't have social consciousness, you wear a lot of makeup and perfume full of carcinogens.
I'm looking for fun, humour, grace and intellectual connection, as well as physical attraction. We need to be marching to the beat of the same drummer.
I'll share my pros and cons (the good news first):
Good sense of humour
Appreciation for visual arts, music (of almost all kinds), literature
Very enthusiastic about my career
Successful in my career (tenacious)
Generous (to a fault)
Tall dark and handsome
Very strong physically
Handy w/ tools/home reno's and fixing my motorbike (my dad was a mechanic)
Broad range of interests
Good w/ budgets
A home owner
Bascially all around nice guy but not a pushover
Over-analytical at times (gotten better w/ age -- I mostly just move forward with decisions now)
At times brooding (part of my work is writing so this requires introspection)
Self-absorbed at times (have been a bachelor for a long time w/ no pets, either, but I'm improving this by spending more time w/ friends and hosting more guests at home)
Hard to share my emotions at times (also improving with time and especially with many men becoming more demonstrative emotionally)
Sometimes crabby (but usually make better jokes while I am)
Pictures upon request.
