Is honesty a myth? Happiness an illusion? Have relationships become an exchange of goods for services? Must I always assume the best of you while you assume the worst of me? 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! If you live in a world of half truths please leave me out of it! I will tell you the truth even when you choose not to hear me. I am exactly who I say I am.
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 so many. I will continue to rely on the code I've developed over a lifetime of experience, 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 myself 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 others seem to keep repeating. Things really are simple for me because I prefer them to be!
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!
