Welcome, Pull up as seat and join me on the dock.
I'm first looking for some to Date and let our friendship build and grow into a Relationship, and whovknows, if you turn out to be the Right Woman I've searched for all of these years... Then, maybe even marriage. ( But that is for later down the road.)
Second.. and most asked disclaimer..
So to answer those 2 questions I keep getting so often on here... Is Yes... I'm not married, and No do not have any kids. The answer to that second question..."Why not?". Is because I chose not to settle and marry someone, I did not feel that spiritual connection with, just for the sake of wanting to be married. If I had... We would have been either divorced by now. Or miserable. So, I can be patient and wait until I find that match. So... No... I have No Committment issues.
As for kids,... I love them, but I refuse to have one with someone I didn't want to marry. We have enough single moms out here, as it is. I believe in the 2 parent household. It was the way I was raised. Also, out of the relationships that I've been in, only 2 (maybe 3) were capable of having any, or anymore kids.
So a little on me.
Well for starters... ::cool:: I'm 5'10" Mixed - Native American Indian, Black & White American. I own my own car, a 4 bed/2 bath house (currently under renovations - converting to 3 bedroom), and I work my own, growing, Handyman repair & maintenance service full-time. So when I'm not working on others homes, I'm working on the Renovations of my house in Rock Hill, SC (l to move into the upstairs apt, and while working on the lower floors). I just like using my hands, see my designs come to life, and give enjoyment to others, especially when helping someone get into a home of their own. (Even during this Economy). Plus, It was what I've been doing since I was in my teens. My work does keep my VERY BUSY working on projects and making repairs. Which of course... limits my time to meet people for dating. So meeting someone On-line is a little easier. Leave me a note, and maybe we can have breakfast together or meet one evening for dinner.
ALL are welcomed. As the top of this profile shows... I enjoy going to the Theatre, musicals, plays, bowling,out for dinner/lunch, listening to Jazz, or just enjoying a nice walk in the park, or around the lake. I am looking for that someone that WE can grow into a serious -one on one relationship.. but, I just prefer it GROWS THERE.. Not looking to immediately jump right into one, or to rush into ANY commitment, or relationships, without getting to really know a person first. It's not that I don't believe in "Love at first Site", I'm just not a fan of "Instant Love". So, for now.., just looking to make Friends first. Then hopefully that can grow into a serious Relationship, (possible marriage is always open). But it's not at the top of the list. Like building a Good Home/house... a good FRIENDSHIP is a great Foundation. We can see where things leads, you never know.
I prefer someone who is HONEST, Truthful, & Faithfulness is Most Important, respectful, and considerate people, as well as a person an Outgoing personality, good sense of humor, who can laugh at herself, and along with others.
I'm considered as a romantic man for the right woman who is truly looking for love. I'm a gentleman at all times, so yes I open doors, and pull out chairs for ladies, (then I help them back up off the floor) ha-ha-ha. If I pick you up from your door… I escort you back to your door. (Not just drop you off and throw you out…)
I ask that you be a person capable to hold a CONVERSATION... not just one sentence, or 4 to 6 words. Feel welcomed to leave a note that you were here. If you choose to leave a message, or a reply to a message I've left for you, please let it be a complete thought. One to four words doesn't give much of a complete thought... (Except the thought that she's quiet and boring).
YOU MUST HAVE A PHOTO ON YOUR PROFILE, and to get a reply from me. You see me up front, so I'm looking for the same.
What I would do for a first date, is be myself, and that is all I ask of you... To be yourself. Hopefully if we hit it off on here, through emails; later we can talk on the phone, then agree to meet somewhere public... maybe for a drink, or over lunch/dinner.
