Hi, I'm ROB... originally from Houston. After high school I enlisted in the military, served 24 years, and lived/visited many places around the world...some good, some bad, but each was a "learning experience". I retired four years ago.
Who am I looking for? well.....
Someone "multifaceted"...Who appreciates being spoiled often, but isn't needy/clingy. Who takes time for herself, and understands/supports/encourages "me time". Who listens to her family & friends, but makes Her OWN decisions. Who looks cute in a T-shirt & jeans OR a pretty dress. Do you smoke or drink? Well light up and bottoms up...just don't blow your smoke in my face or spill your drink in my lap. Do you have "baggage"? So what, we ALL do.... its 2015! But we can work thru/around anything, as long as I won't end up needing therapy or have to appear in court. i WON'T do "drama", but i WILL help "sort things out". Hey Single Mommies, i DO like kids and think they are great...IF they are well-behaved(a reflection of you). And if your EX is an "O.J." type, just warn me upfront, I'll be fine.
Marilyn Monroe once said: "if you can't accept me at my worst, then you don't deserve me at my best". Well, I couldn't agree with her more... and I am willing to help you thru your worst BECAUSE you are willing to give me your best. Isn't a relationship supposed to be give AND take? Let's prove it together... men AND women are BOTH from EARTH, period!!!
I firmly believe in the "Golden Rule"...and that is at work, with friends, AND in a relationship. Take my advice ladies: just because one guy wronged you and/or your Bestie, does NOT automatically mean that I will. We are not made in factories....on the contrary, we teach ourselves how to behave on our own(hence the "Golden Rule"), especially me. When you are with me, you WILL be treated with respect & dignity, and I hope that you can return the favor. I don't ask/demand/expect too much, but I do give back a whole lot in return...its just in my nature. I also firmly believe that chivalry is not dead, and I hope that you can and will appreciate that too. oh, and If you ever snubbed a guy for being [too nice], close your profile and join the Peace Corps, because you don't deserve a happy/normal relationship!!!
I get out as much as I can...staying in is boring, so I'm usually up for almost anything. I'll go to the movies and see "Still Alice" with you, if you'll go see "SPY" with me...or we can meet halfway and go see "While We're Young". I'll go to Pottery and Ballroom Dancing classes with you, if you go to an occasional Ball Game or Concert with me. if/when we go to a Fair or Carnival, I expect you to throw darts at balloons WITH me, instead of standing back with your arms crossed "to just watch". That is such B-S, it defeats the whole point of going to have fun TOGETHER!
I like meeting new people and making new friends...
Music tastes... mostly Classic Rock(KISS, Aerosmith, The Eagles) and Modern Rock(Foster The People, Cage the Elephant, Imagine Dragons) but I have a tendency to tap my feet to just about anything, even "Blank Space" by Taylor Swift........ (SHHH!) lol!
I luv "Chill-Ville", sunday mornings on FM 101X
My pics are recent.... and of course, no shirtless and/or sunglasses pics (you're welcome!)
So, do you have any questions? Well, I have answers. So fire away, I'm an open book, nothing to hide...just be prepared for the answer, because I will give it to you straight without sugar-coating it. I also firmly believe in COMPLETE Honesty.
Well let's face it, dating these days is a "gamble"......so to cut down on the awkwardness & nervousness of the proverbial "1st Encounter", I usually suggest a friendly lunch for a 1st date. In this situation, You have plenty of time to talk and get to know each other better, and there is no pressure or stress of "afterward expectations". And since the rest of the afternoon is usually already planned with errands, there is plenty of time for the [post-date assessment] that everyone goes thru. So, if lunch goes well, then You actually can't wait to see that person again.....but if it doesn't go well(or if something "just doesn't click") then you can easily chalk it up as a learning experience, and maybe make a new friend. No harm-No foul. Other than that.... any ideas? I'm all ears!
