I spent 13 years in the USAF and 7 working for a big aerospace firm. I just turned 40 and simply looking for someone with a sense of humor and takes care of themselves. If you can't take a joke & cry if I make fun of you then it will never work. If I make fun of someone it's because I like them, never to hurt feelings. I don't say anything to those I don't care for & the teasing is a form a endearment & my clown persona.
I love modesty. I woman who hides what most would flaunt is a major attraction. I should find you way more attractive than you think you are. Just sayin. lol. I'm easy going & I like my friends and people that are close to me. We are cohesive and we like to have fun. I'm a car guy too. I don't smoke but don't judge. I'm not even going to lie. I am not attracted to overweight women. I'm from Arizona and everyone is thin. Maybe it's the sun. I stay in shape & it's a great way to show you care.I fall for quirks so what a woman may be insecure about might be something I just incredibly like. Please write if this might be you with the intent of meeting. I hate the text thing forever. It's passive aggressive. Oh, & I'm not interested in married women. I'm a God fearing man & He is my moral compass.
I actually like to keep it simple. Eating in front of someone you just meet is often not a good meal but nervous. I think a nice lounge, or club with a band and comfortable seating would be ideal. Have a few drinks and watch a band, play or a performance. I also like meeting with my friends. Showing up where a group of us are & even if we don't click you get to hang out.
