I'm not sure what to put here to attract a genuine guy. I'm not convinced most people read profiles anyway. From some of the emails, it is clear a lot of people are either just looking at pictures, or randomly emailing to see who will respond. I will continue to be honest, and see if there is anyone out there who will do the same. I'm looking for someone who is looking for a real, long term relationship. I love kids, and want some of my own. If you have kids, I know I will fall in love with them, and treat them like my own. Please do not use them to manipulate me. That will only hurt them, and me, and is just wrong. I can be shy at first, but once I feel comfortable, I am a very fun, funny, active, adventurous, kind, giving, loving person. I am a great cook, and will do anything for those I care about. I work very hard. I work long hours. I do what I need to do to take care of myself. Please have your stuff in order. I'm not looking for someone to take care of me, but i'm not looking to take care of you either. I'm looking for an equal partner in crime. Are you him?
