Welcome, Pull up as seat and join me on the dock. The water is calm and soothing, the grill is hot and cooking some good food, the cooler and mini frig is filled with drinks -- tea, soda's, kool-aid, beer. hahahaa.
Even though the Intent.. box says: Looking for a Relationship... I'm first looking for Casual Dating.. that can grow into a Relationship, and if you turn out to be the Right Woman... maybe even marriage.
No need to shout. I can hear you just fine with you sitting right here. If your profile is in ALL Captial letters -- I will not even take the time to look at, let alone read your profile. ALL capitals says the person is SHOUTING at you, and is difficult to understand or read.
So a little on me.
Well for starters... ::cool:: I'm 5'10" Mixed - Native American, Black & White (Mulotto - as it was called during my grandparents days), with No kids, and never married. I retired just a year and half ago from the mortgage industry, as a contract mortgage fulfillment specialist, after over 28 yrs. I am now running my Maintenance-Handyman service full-time. While working on the Renovations of my new house in Rock Hill, SC (Planning to move into the upstairs apt, and work on lower floors soon). 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 immeditately jump right into one, or to rush into ANY commentment, or relationships, without getting to really know a person first. It's not that I don't believe in "Love at first Stie", 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. Besides, Not really having the time for it anyway, but 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 maybe someone who likes to talk on the phone. It's okay with me... but I don't need you phone number on the first email... so if you give it and I don't call. It's not you... I would like to read your thoughts more, than hear you on the phone. So please don't feel offended, if I don't respond back right away.
OH... 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.
A little more about me... Rules are good. But as you are learning, there should be some "flexibilty" without --- Breaking the rules. So they are more like "Guidelines".
I have 5 simple (IN STONE) rules...
Rule #1... Place GOD, THE GREAT CREATOR, first in all that you do.
The GREAT CREATOR's energy is apart of us all. HIS 10 COMMANDMENTS are great commandment to live by. (Guidelines)... example.. You will love Thy GOD .. Translates (You will love GOD & yourself, for you are apart of GOD.) You will honor thy father and mother (parents)... Translates.. Respect them, care for them, show them Honor, and in take that HONOR into yourself.
Rule #2... Don't Sweat the small stuff.
NOTHING IN LIFE, Nothing that you will go through, are going through, or have gone throughis bigger than the CREATOR. HE allow trials to come your way, but only because HE knows you can handle it. Hence the saying: HE will not put more on you than you can bare.
Rule #3... You control your circumstances... not your circumstances control you.
Life is about "Balance".. the Ying & Yang is a natural order. You cannot control the weather.. it may be raining, or is windy outside, that's out of your control, But you can control how you deal with it... you were rain gear, or carry umbrella to stay dry., etc....
Rule #4... Enjoy LIFE. Recognize the pleasures of LIFE the CREATOR has placed all around you. For HE wants you to ENJOY them, as HE does.
No... I don't go to church every Sunday...(Now slow that roll.. I see your neck rolling, alone with those lovely eyes... I said "I don't go to church EVERY Sunday. I do go whenever I'm back home, and close enough to go. So straighten those eyes and that neck. Now you can resume reading. Hahahaha) No.. I don't read the BIBLE everyday, nor can I repeat the passages word for word. To me... I attend Church services EVERYDAY. Everyday I wake... to hear birds, crickets, the sounds of life all around, Then I hear the HEAVENLY Choir of the CREATOR singing the gospel song to start my day. I get to see his BLESSING, sun up... through sun down and into the night. If you just learn to pay attention to HIM.
Rule #5... IF IT'S DOESN'T APPLY TO RULE #1... THEN IT'S ALL SMALL STUFF. Follow rules# 1-4.
