Unless it's on your profile, please include a picture with first contact. I'm wondering...why would anyone go on a dating site without a picture? Are you ashamed of your appearance? Married or attached? If you're embarrassed to be on a dating site then why make a profile?
I'm not interested in a long distance relationship or really long drives to meet. Local please. I don't want to talk somewhere else on IM so you can ask me what kind of panty I'm wearing and send me a penis pic. Troll much? :eyeroll:
Some of you are religious and it is important to you. I will probably not accompany you to church. I will accompany you to do charitable things.
1. The family in my dollhouse were locust shells
2. An honorary submariner, I have the angles and dangles ID
3. Manual transmissions are the bomb!
4. I play with bugs. (see #1)
5. Love roller coasters. Water rides, notsomuch.
6. There are always darts and dice in my glovebox. You never know...
7. Love maple anything.
8. Bonfires are always better than bars.
9. Camping is great!
10. Television = mass hypnosis
Reading is my entertainment of choice. Love the internet too, and spend too much time there. Listen to all sorts of music. Love my pets and grandkids. If you don't like or have time for kids and animals, we're incompatible
Recycling everything is a belief and a passion. Buildings, pets, people, cars, homes, clothing, garbage. Living simply within your income and taking care of what you already have will always earn my deep respect.
I am not a princess or a b!tch or a goddess. Pedestals are for statues or plants,not for me. Worship is for the weak minded.
Kind of solitary. Value uniqueness, and candor. Sometimes I can get lost in an activity.
I am a Progressive. That means, Left of Democrat and not in the least bit Conservative.
If I love you, I will trust you. It's a lot of rope, don't hang yourself with freedom.
Sexual compatibility is important. There must be mutual attraction. Please be lean and well groomed. Hope you're a great kisser.
Love great conversation, ideas, creativity...have a curious mind. Men who read are fascinating. If you're creative (cooking, gardening, writing, music, art etc...) would love to hear from you.
What's sexy? A genuine fondness for women, and our thought processes. Kindness, gentle ways with children and pets. Charity, mentorship, donations of talent or time. An interest in the world around you, your own community and all levels of governance. I'm ready to actively give back.
Adaptability is highly valued, a sense of adventure, flexibility. A good sense of self, comfortable in your own skin. You don't need a constant level of attention. You have friends, activities and close ties to your own family. Grounded, and well rounded.
Sorry for the negativity but I know what won't work. Why waste your time, or mine? If you are married/attached, chew, should lose more than fifteen lbs, or have an untrimmed beard, not interested, sorry. No haters, bigots or homophobes. No Tea Party, Fox News (ha!) Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh or Glenn Beck fans. Trust me, we won't suit.
Trying to find the right person is complicated enough without having to prove that you're not the person who came before. A title about fidelity, honesty, no drama, isn't there one good woman etc...unfinished business. Mistrust as a default is exhausting - for both of us. Come back when you're ready.
A perfect first date would be the zoo, live music, bowling, darts, a museum, a winery, rollerblading, bicycling, miniature golf, amusement park, fair, carnival, old time village.
Some activity to do so there aren't those awkward silences. It's not necessary to spend a lot of money. Creativity and fun are more important than dollar amounts, and that way I can reciprocate.
Love all sorts of food and Greek and Japanese are favorites.
Let's take the time to get to know each other, neither of us is desperate.
Good luck to all of you. Open to any and all gender, sexual orientation, race or age (for friendship)....
If you add me to favorites and don't email, I'll remove myself shortly...
