You'd better snatch me up fast... I'm just about to give up completely.
Good genes run in my family so I look younger than what I am. If you're not younger than me, or, at least, look it, I probably won't be physically attracted. We all know that physical attraction is what makes the spark that lights the fuse.
The rules of "dating" have changed so much! If I ask for your number too quick, I'm a stalker but if I wait too long, I'm not interested? If I'm ready to meet now, I'm in a hurry but if I wait too long, you're seeing someone else? Am I supposed to pay for our first meeting or do we go dutch? If I wait three days to contact you after our date, I'm not interested but if I call the next day I'm obsessed? I would like for someone to explain some of these new rules to me, I guess I've been out of touch for way too long! LOL
I'm not going to sit here and brag about what a good guy I am, how much money I have, that I drive a nice car, that I'm in perfect shape and have all my teeth, because it would be a lie. I've had my problems with women, I'm not a very good communicator. My typing skills may be excellent and creative but I stumble when it comes to talking to a woman. I'm not rich, I make money the hard way - by working full-time and I live meagerly and within my means like most people. I don't own a house (YET) or drive a BMW. I rent a house and I drive a Dodge SUV. I'm very rough on the outside.. sometimes brash, insulting and condescending. I curse way too much and I've got little to NO respect for stupid people or awful drivers. I don't take in stray animals or do my part to preserve the earth. My ideal weight is between 160 and 165 but I'm breaking the 185 mark now - and it's all belly. I don't have a full head of sleek glistening "fresh from the salon" hair. It's fading fast in the front, so I just shave it all off when I'm not feeling incredibly lazy. I have been trying to eat salads and low-fat meals, but sometimes I sit down with a box of Little Debbies, Cocoa Puffs or Triple Chocolate Cake ice cream and snack. I had two molars snatched out last year because they hurt like hell and I got one front tooth knocked out on the bottom in a bike crash!! I am NOT the perfect guy. However, if/when I find that attractive, intelligent, affectionate, responsible, mature, funny and sexy woman that understands and accepts all of this and loves me unconditionally with or without my many flaws, she'll be the one I'm with for the rest of my life. She'll reap every benefit of my HUGE heart, my affectionate nature and my desire to show my partner how much I love her.
My life's motto is "DO WHAT YOU SAY YOU ARE GOING TO DO". If you can't or won't handle that, move along.
I usually don't get on this site until late at night so it's more than likely that I'll browse through, pick a few favorites and email them later. If I get a message between dinner and bedtime, I'll sometimes check it out and see if my interest is piqued. Don't be offended if I don't message you back, Mom taught me "if you don't have anything nice to say, hit delete".
First Date I'm very easy to please. No movies on the first few dates... can't really talk much in a movie and it's dark - I wouldn't want to be taken advantage of. :) Let's come to a mutual agreement of where and when. How about you take ME out and surprise ME? I can't even estimate how much money I've spent on first (and only) dates. Show me that there was a women's rights movement for a reason
Post First Date If the spark is there, not necessarily a full fireworks display, we can go from there. Maybe a long walk or just sitting on a bench chatting, smiling and laughing.
How about something exciting and different like skydiving? An impromptu trip to Tybee? Jekyll Island? Six Flags in Atlanta? Wanna take the dogs to the dog park? Let's go get you a tattoo (I have two)!
Chivalry is NOT dead, it's simply taking a vacation while women decide whether or not they are enjoying "equal rights". I'll open the door for you, unless you don't want me to, and it may not be every single time. I don't want someone who's feet I have to grovel at.
