I'm single and usually quite happy that way but I do miss having someone to share the good times (and even the not so good times) with. I'm very fortunate in having a job that I love with coworkers I enjoy. My family is important to me, but we're not in touch on a daily basis and we live our own lives.
In a relationship I think it's important for each of us to have our own lives and identities. I'm very supportive of my partner but I don't expect or want to be together 24/7. Boys' night out is just fine as long as you don't object to girls' night lol.
It takes me a while to trust someone and really open up, but once I do I'm fiercely loyal and passionate. It can take time to get to know me, but it's worth it in the long run ;-)
I love animals, particularly dogs and horses. I ride, but certainly don't expect you to. I dragon boat 2x/wk...love it! I'm a hockey fan, not into the bar scene but enjoy a good pub. I'm not a barbie doll or a model.....so if that's what you're expecting to find...good luck out there! I'm very honest and expect the same in return. I don't ask for much really...be honest and do what you say you're going to. I'm not into mind games and haven't the time or patience for them in others. I like a variety of music (not including country/rap/'dance'). I'm not one for going out for fancy dinners (once in a while, okay, but not often)...I'd rather do something casual together. A walk, a movie, evening with friends, a night in front of the fire...whatever!
I appreciate any messages, I really do, but I'm sorry...if all you say is "Hi" or similar, the odds of a reply are pretty slim ;-)
(if I've added you as a favourite, but haven't said anything, it's just that I was only on for a moment and flagged your profile so that I could find it later when I have time to actually read it)
Best of luck!
First meeting, something casual and low-pressure! Meet for a drink (alc or not), chat, walk..whatever! I'm always up for something humiliating like mini-golf, bowling, pool. (suck at all but give them a try every few years) ;-)
