Is honesty a myth? Happiness an illusion? Have relationships become an exchange of goods for services? I refuse to let go of the fairytales I've cherished all my life! Truth, honesty and my word are things I've grown to value above anything money can by. I do the right thing simply because it is the right thing to do. Sometimes I make mistakes but it is not with the intent of hurting someone and I take steps to correct those errors often before any one knows I've screwed up! Being here has been an education to say the least!
I have no idea how to "sell" something that isn't for sale... or how to highlight myself here where my values are seen as weakness by many. So I will continue to rely on the code I've developed over a lifetime of trial and error to guide me in my search for a kind and wonderful woman. I have settled in the past because I know how difficult it is to evolve as a person with all of the pressures of living a full life but I won't compromise on integrity or waste my time on a woman who has none! Sure there are things that can be taught and I'm still learning but compassion and empathy are not among them! I use my uncommon sense and good judgment all day to ensure I sleep well at night. I have little regret and strive to keep it that way. Some say I'm a hard ass or inflexible but I have learned from the mistakes they seem to keep repeating. Things really are simple for me because I prefer them to be!
I'd like to go out for some fun, do some winter activities! Take the dogs for a hike... I see this as just a chance to meet and see if we have chemistry to pursue. This is not a fantasy... I have been in love... I have supported another and been supported so I know what I want and will never settle! I am very active, work out and keep myself in shape. I enjoy laughter and friendly open conversation. I'm very passionate about the things I love but the world is full of wonder so I keep an open mind! I have accomplished a lot in my life and consider myself well rounded or at least comfortable in most settings. I'd love to meet a fit and happy woman to treat with respect and kindness. I don't have time to chase nor will I date multiple women or be a part of some bachelorette rose ceremony! I am not attracted to over weight women at all. That is not being mean just honest and all women want honesty right?! I'm not on meds, handicapped or dwelling on aches or pains. I love life and am looking for a partner to share this life! Things are only negative if you want them to be... I choose to shake off the crap that comes along and get back to living with a "I'm glad it didn't get in my mouth" smile!
I'm hopeful to find her but who knows... things have a way of working out in time! If not I still have the good companionship of my labs and that keeps me smiling everyday! Those chickens... now that is another story! HaHa!
The chickens are back in my good graces these days but I'm keeping an eye on them! 3/4/15
Walkin', Talkin', Eatin', Drinkin', Smilin', Laughin', Keeping it pretty simple and lighthearted! Yes, you can wear my coat if you get cold! No "Job interviews" please! If dating you is a job I don't want it!
