THE SECOND PICTURE IS FROM APRIL 2012, THE PURPLE SWEATER. I WILL START BY SAYING THAT I HAVE LOST 34 POUNDS SINCE MAY 2012 TO NOW, MARCH 2014. STARTED FROM 224 DOWN TO 190. IT LOOKS BETTER AND FEELS BETTER. I will start this piece off with what you read is what you get. I am sure that many will say this sounds like an"old fart" trying to sugar coat everything with a lot of B.S. Not the case. I also believe in giving a lot of info as you can see so that acceptance or rejection can be be made without 16 emails going back and forth. I am an attractive, well groomed and well dressed, multi faceted, intelligent and am very well versed guy on most issues. I love the history and politics of our great country, am a conservative independant, and consider myself a "patriot", am gentle, kind, sensual, seuxal, a good kisser who loves the same in a lady, and very virile guy, touchy feely who is not afraid to show emotion at any time, tears of joy or sadness or happy elation, if you don't like being told nice things about yourself or hugged from behind at the kitchen sink with maybe a little soft kiss on the back of your neck, or a big greeting hug at the front door or later if we get to this point, a loving hug and kiss as you get out of the shower soaking wet, or having your legs and feet messaged every night we are together for an hour or so plus full body massage if the lady desires it and by someone who really does know how to do it, (my hands are a great asset to me and my honey) you if didn't like that, we would be a bad match. Speaking of kitchens, I am very handy in them and make a very good crab cake and I make some good party specials like crab dip and deviled eggs and so on. The grill is no stranger to me. I also am the family specialist for twice baked potatoes, candied sweet potatoes and sauer kraut when called upon at Thanksgiving or other occasions and can bake when appointed. I will open car doors for you and seat you in restaurants because I am a gentleman. I enjoy dancing with the "right lady" and can hold my own with slow dance, a little swing and the younger sets wedding menu..."Celebration" etc. I love to hold hands and will get up or rise anywhere.... restaurant, theatre to reseat you. I will also do the same, stand up that is, any where at our homes, the golf course after a great shot by you, a bench in the park, a restaurant, a wedding and give you a little kiss and hug, not a wet passionate one that may embarrass you but a soft and moist one that may make you think...maybe I would like a little more of this guy later. You will be dealing with a hopeless romantic so you are fore-warned and that makes you fore-armed!!! Love my family of five kids plus another daughter that we took in at 15 and is part of the family and a bunch of grands and two great grands and one in the oven baking and spend time with them. My business does not overwhelm me or run my life. I am pretty easy going "Type A" personality that can go with the flow if it is not a negative rip tide. That said, I am very adventurous, spontaneous, a little crazy, (MAYBE A LOT CRAZY LOL), and have an irreverent sense of humor.....most of the time. I am looking for a lady first but more importantly a "First Lady" in my life, one who knows how to accept love and affection and also knows and understands the art of giving it back without having to be asked for it. Also, all hopeless romantics are invited to the party to see if we fit.
I love most sports and our teams in Baltimore, the Ravens and the Orioles and the Maryland Terps basketball team. Have been involved as a volunteer in a long and diverse list of charities, our family helping other families in need, hospitals and local service clubs and coaching sports at all non adult age levels. I also spent some time in the minor leagues of baseball as an Oriole farm hand (player) getting paid for something I would haved paid them to do. Baseball is my first love in sports with golf coming right behind it. Love to wear and play in bermudas or jeans but have a very good wardrobe and a couple of tuxedos in the closet waiting for a pretty lady to ask me to the next gala ball or perhaps I might ask her to the same. I can handle any type social gathering either at the top of the ladder or any other of the many rungs on it, including your family, with ease and can wratchet it up or down, what ever the situation calls for. If you need to speak to someone across the room, it is okay because I am a very confident person who never needs his hand held in a crowd except.......when walking with you. We just may make it if you write a line or two but you will never know unless you step across that line in the sand.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
SOME PLACE REASONABLY QUIET SO WE CAN TALK AND HEAR EACH OTHER. A WALK IN THE PARK, A SMALL COUNTRY RESTAURANT, A COFFEE SHOP, A QUIET COUNTRY RESTAURANT, A MUSEUM WALK, A PICNIC, OUTDOOR SYMPHONY CONCERT, A BASEBALL GAME, A GOLF COURSE. TOTALLY YOUR CHOICE AS LONG AS IT IS A PLACE WE, BUT MORE PARTICULARLY YOU, ARE COMFORTABLE WITH THE SETTING AND CAN EASILY COMMUNICATE IN SEARCH OF THAT MYSTERY THAT WE HAVE NAMED, THAT SOMETIMES VERY ELUSIVE AND HARD THING TO FIND .... "CHEMISTRY".
