I'm sorry that I have to start out with negatives, but it's apparent profiles aren't read completely...so......
I'm not going to answer one liners or "text speak".
It's also disappointing the growing number of obviously fake profiles since Match.com took over this site.
I'm genuine (and hope you are as well) and I'm looking for a great woman to date. (could this be you?) I want to experience that feeling again when you look in to someones eyes and they light up and a smile develops across their lips. I want to feel my heart rate increase when I see you enter the room or when I see your text or name on caller ID.
I really appreciate a genuine smile (your smile can tell me a lot about you and your personality). Laughter is certainly the best medicine! I know when to be serious, and when to take a joke. (I dish it out, I'd better be able to take it). I have a positive attitude and really don't want/need drama in my life. I can't stand liars and honesty will go a lot further with me. You've GOT to know the difference between your and you're, their, they're and there, and sell and sale and know how to use it. LOL
I have 2 dogs so if you like dogs, you've already earned major points (who couldn't love these two boys). My children (24 & 21) live in a suburb of Buffalo, NY. I love muscle cars, fast boats, obviously the lake, traveling (love cruising), excitement, SCUBA and have a diversified interest in music. I don't have many deal breakers except you being married and/or using drugs.
One pet peeve is though, if the words "flip" and "flop" exist simultaneously in your vocabulary for purposes other than the pool, lake or beach, we're probably not going to see eye to eye on other things.
Anything else, feel free to ask!
Our first date should be an opportunity to get to know each other a little more. That's why a quaint place that we can hear each other would be ideal. I like meeting for coffee or a drink only because if there is a mutual interest and attraction, we can continue the afternoon and possible the evening. If not, no hard feelings and neither person need feel obligated to stay. Ciao!
