How to describe myself...Let's see.
I'm pretty basic. I'm ordinary and normal. I like the same things most people do, with the exception of coffee. I'm not a barbie-doll or a model. I have a job that I enjoy, a mortgage that I don't enjoy as much, family that I love (and who can drive me crazy), a reliable vehicle, no criminal record, no psycho exes (well, one, but he doesn't know where I am. hahaha), good friends, no pets (I love animals but I'm not home enough to have one these days).
I enjoy the usual activities...but lean more toward quieter times. I enjoy a good pub but I'm not into bars or clubs. I'll take casual and comfortable over formal and fancy any day (clothing and environment). The ocean is where I go when I need to think, unwind, cry, rejoice, you name it. The ocean grounds me (is that an oxymoron?) I enjoy the outdoors, but don't have a history of camping (I could probably deal with damp canvas if you take care of the bugs and if there's a real toilet and shower nearby) ;-)
I ride horses, paddle dragon boats and outriggers, need to get back to badminton and my bike has been idle far too long. I'm an NHL fan, casual CFL fan and don't object to watching most sports. If it's one I'm not into I have no problem with my significant other watching without me...I'll be outside or reading or whatever.
I enjoy intelligent, funny people. I'm sarcastic but not in a mean way. If you don't ''get'' sarcasm etc, we probably shouldn't even bother ;-) (I also don't take myself very seriously. Friends seem to find me funny but I AM capable of serious conversation etc).
As far as music goes, my taste is varied but doesn't extend to 99 per cent of rap or country, and 100 per cent of the dance crap that's out there these days. I watch tv, but am not a slave to it (that's what dvr's are for).
So, those are the basics. Oh! What am I looking for? Ultimately, a relationship. Obviously that comes after dating. I don't share. If I'm seeing someone, I'm only seeing that person and I'd expect the same. Schedules can be a challenge, but if the interest is there, there are ways to work around difficult schedules. I don't require someone 24/7...we all have lives and commitments. I'm fine with boys night out, as long as the reverse is also true ;-)
That's more than enough about me! I'm pretty open so if you have any questions, feel free to ask.
This is the obligatory disclaimer...I don't have access to "meet me" so, you know the drill. Thanks! Oh, and POF asks if we want children...I take that to mean am I looking at HAVING any. It isn't asking if I would be with someone who already has kids. Two very different answers! lol
Good luck :-)
PS: If I mark you as a favourite but haven't sent a message, it's because I'm only on for a moment and want to read your profile properly when I have the time.
PPS: I have a couple of pics...don't like either of them lol.(I don't claim to be anything I'm not...what you see is what you get) One is a work pic and the other is after a couple of dragon boat races so, you know...sweaty...(but happy!) ;-)
"I might not be someone's first choice,
but I am a great choice.
I may not be rich but I am valuable.
I don't pretend to be someone I'm
not, because I'm good at being me.
I might not be proud of some of the
things I've done in the past, but I am
proud of who I am today.
I may not be perfect but I don't need
to be. Take me as I am, or watch me as I walk away."
