I have been told time and time again I'm a dork. But people seem to like to be around me. I have a ton of friends but only a couple of really close ones. My family is important. My parents are still married and my brothers still live close by. I have a great job (self employed). I like to be out doors but sometimes I like to be lazy too, especially if its cold and rainy out. I can be kinda an ass sometime but it goes away and I don't hold grudges. I have 2 dogs (one is mine, one somehow i rescued). I listen to all kinds of music. I like country, and house the most, but my Pandora account has rock,reggae, and hip hop on it too! iPods are outdated! Even if I have had 3 of them.
OK to be clear, I am looking for someone who is good looking and is willing to be with a man and be satisfied that she does not need attention from every douchbag that walks by. I take care of myself. I'm not trying to be a 10 and I'm not trying to get a 10. I also realize I live in the Bay Area and most girls who are a 5 think they are a 10. To me this is not a competition. I make a real good living and I love what I do. I am flexible in my schedule and I love to experience new things. My ex brought things to my life I didn't even know I wanted. I am looking for someone like that. I think going out with your friends is HEALTHY and I am not a jealous guy. I have come to realize though that women looking for men that are "not jealous" are also the ones who have too many ex's or baggage to be trusted. I can't be with a woman who is EXTREME into anything! I want a well rounded woman. If you have to focus too much attention into one thing or another then you really need to find yourself before finding someone to share your life with. My guy friends have accused me of having a bad "picker". I tend to be attracted to the "****es". Where are all the nice women who are not over bearing??? I know I may be acting like I;m perfect but I'm not. I let my dogs sleep in bed with me, I snore 8 months out of the year, I suck at saving money, and I don't floss everyday. I love wine, and Beer, I hate Smoking! I have been with someone who has had 2 daughters for three years and I prefer to meet someone without children. ALTHOUGH our breakup had nothing to do with the girls! I am not apposed to meeting someone with kids. I realize the older I get the higher the change of me meeting someone who has been married or has kids.
I would love to meet someone into similar lifestyle. Not a perfect match, I want someone a little different so I can learn from them. I'm extremely open to doing different things both athletic and social. I almost never meet anyone I don't get along with. OK I really should be working not doing this!
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Meet at a wine bar and talk for hours! A second date would be something less interview. Maybe a hike or a bike ride early in the day. If it felt right then it wouldn't end and we would be looking something stupid to do together so we didn't have to go home!
