If you must have a bathroom selfie, at least crop out the toilet. Otherwise, don't be surprised when a bunch of shitty guys message you.
I don't write one word introduction messages. I take the time to say why I think we might be a match even though i'm busier than 95% of the people on here. If my message sparks your interest enough for you to look at my profile, at least send a message back even if it is no. I've gotten pretty good at taking rejection but I hate feeling like I didn't even warrant a two word response of "no thanks".
I'm a successful smart single guy with a lot of good friends and a few great ones. I tend to have a live and let live attitude. I don't like politics and I'm tired of people telling others how to live. I love travel and spend most of my free time on the road with friends or tinkering in the garage which is nicer than most people's homes. My career is everything I want it to be and although I may not be going golfing with the Koch brothers any time soon, there isn't much I want for. My success is due in part to the backing of a good family and in part to a lot of my own hard work. I have a lot to offer and I'm not in the mood to settle which is probably why I'm still single.
I appreciate nice things but I'm not materialistic. I don't think a person's net worth determines how good they are. What I'm looking for is maturity. I don't mind a person that has made mistakes as long as they have learned from them but if you have 5 different kids from multiple fathers or if you are currently pregnant and couldn't even stay with the father for 9 months then you obviously aren't a good mature decision maker.
I don't have many regrets in my life and there isn't much I would change. However I've never had a strong relationship with anyone outside my family and I want that. Although I won't rush into anything, what I'm ultimately looking for is a true partner to experience life with.
If there's a bike show or car show in town that could be fun to go to and walk around talking too. I can occasionaly run a rack of pool so if you think you can beat me that would really get my attention. Under no circumstances would I want to go to a movie on a first date. I like movies but you can't get to know someone while sitting quietly staring at a screen.
It should be noted that I absolutely hate hip hop music so if that's all you listen to it isn't going to work.
