I'm in decent shape, IQ, very well read (science, philosophy, history, theology, law, most of the classics), job, work truck & play truck, tools, fairly busy life....don’t, drink, drug or smoke…don’t care if you drink or smoke…I like Classical, Classic & Hard Rock, Blues, Motown, and Old Skool R & B. Like hard work, movies, fishing, camping, chess, cards, dominoes, cooking for a beautiful woman,…hell I’ll try about anything once. Even went to a chicken auction (what a guy will do for a date!!) Have been dating but not finding what I am looking for. I know everyone has baggage...I have my own and carry it myself. You will need to do the same. More than this, you will need to bring something to the table. I want a partner not a pet (I have a cat to fill that position?). Bad boy gone good? That describes me well...really... I know what it means to be a good man and I think I am close to being the man I always wanted to be, even if I don't have the things I have wanted to have. I have found in myself deep reserves of compassion and empathy, but the back side of this? I dont tolerate bullshit. I guess one day I decided that I had had enough pain. I filled the hole INside me, someday i hope to fill the space BEside me. That doesn't mean I wont enjoy meeting interesting people along the way. I would like to meet someone with whom I can carry on an intelligent conversation. . .and LAUGH! Religion, politics, sex, they say shouldn't be discussed, but those are the subjects that reveal the most about a person! I don't do Politically Correct, but neither am I tempted to be cruel. Most days I value my solitude...but the evenings wherein I experience that profound loneliness (coming more often)? Yeah, gotta fix that. I will take a good look before mixing assets again. I do know how to be a friend, and attentive lover, but I doubt I would entertain the idea of marriage again... you would have to be an exceptional woman for me to head that direction.....Sis getting over cancer (her mom's side), father not aging well ( 72, diabetes, Alzheimer, dementia), working full time, my own business is taking off, baby sit grandson 5 nights a week (his momma works graveyard)...my plate is full. If this does go somewhere, I'm looking for shelter, not more chaos...
Maybe I am a little rough around the edges. That wont bother the woman I am trying to meet. It will attract her. I'm seeking a woman completely uninvolved with another man, kind, frugal, adventurous, not trying to single-handedly keep cosmetic companies in business, craves passion and affection. Looks are great, but if you have a sharp mind, strong will, big heart (maybe a little randy? lol), you won’t need looks.
UPDATE: I have secure employment, vehicles, my own place wherein I am head of household. If you cannot match that (renting is okay), I am not sure you should message me. If you aren't able to stand on your own two feet, you wont have the character traits I need in a partner.
If you are not from OKC area, forget it. Otherwise, first meeting I am thinking coffee shop. Safe, low key...somewhat casual...if money were no object i would say fly to Austin for a pizza! One thing is for sure... you will know that chivalry is not dead! I have been opening the door for women since I was sixteen... how I was raised. I say yes ma'am and no ma'am, please and thank you. In other words, expect to be treated with respect. Even if you are less than kind, you will still receive that same respect. . .
