EDIT***** Ok, So I am not interested in trying to date anyone that doesn't live in Reno/Sparks area. So that means NO Dayton, Carson City, G-Ville, Minden, NO Ferntucky, No Fallon etc. Sorry ladies, just too difficult with my limited availability to have an actual relationship being 35+ miles away.
Hey! Alright... so to follow directions...
I enjoy taking the motorcycle around Tahoe in the summer, I stay bundled up in the winter (Cause I don't like snow much) I work a lot, and work out a lot. When not doing that, I'm playing with my puppies (2 dachshunds) or working on my classic mustang restoration ('67 fastback).
I have lived all over the country (17 states) and have owned businesses, managed a few, and been a grunt. Did lots of drugs (not anymore lol) and had a wild life. I never lost my values nor even considered not being a Christian, although I haven't lived a "Christian" life, my heart belongs to God. I'm particular about some stuff, and very lax about many others in the way I live my life. I always wanted children, but never found the "Right one" to have them with. I'm starting to wonder if it may be too late. I'm an only child, and my Mom passed 18 years ago, and my Dad is not long for the earth now (Stage 4 lung cancer). So I don't have a big family, but I would really love one!
My taste in music is varied, I grew up in the 80s so of course I like all that stuff, which is I guess now considered "Classic rock" lol but I mostly lean toward harder and more complicated beats from music termed "metal" But I really enjoy some classical or stuff like Evanescence, Enya, Earth drums, ocean sounds, forest sounds etc when in the mood. Jazz, blues and some country if I can stand it, once in a very great while. Don't like rap at all, and most of the "house" music either.
I'm looking for an honest woman. One who is self-sufficient, and strong. Someone who has been through adversity and come out the other side, like I have. I am looking for a woman who wants a good, solid relationship. I'm not your "booty call" guy, been there, done that 20 years ago, and while physically fun, it doesn't lead to long-term meaningful relationships. I've never been married, and have no children. I love kids, but I'm not looking to be a father to 3+ children overnight...
So I guess with "internet dating" the FIRST date in my opinion is only AFTER you have met someone casually in person, to test the chemistry, because lets face it, it doesn't matter HOW great you look in that picture, you might have a sucky personality! haaa
First date however, I think should be something fun and upbeat, that both people are comfortable with. Like dinner, or a picnic or a walk along a river, around a lake, or possibly a hike with the dogs. Something casual and not too intense. Something where we can get to know each other a little better, and see if the chemistry is still good, and there's no weirdness lol I would want you to be able to have a conversation, and have a mind of your own, and be opinionated and strong. I'm not looking for someone dependent, or in need of attention, but someone who is ok by themselves, but wants to share things with someone special to them. I'm looking for someone to compliment my life, not complicate it. :-)
