A quick ice breaker before all the serious stuff below if you even read it, not sure where I heard it but if I was 20 years younger I would try it a time or two and see what kind of responses and looks I would get. I might even wear a button (pin hole camera) to record the cashier's facial and verbal responses.
I stroll into the local corner / gas store (Valero, Stop-In-Go, Stripes, Exxon Mobil, Shell or maybe a Walgreens) I walk up and down the aisles looking and end up at the front counter and ask the female cashier where the condoms are located? She replies they are here behind the counter. She ask which brand would you like and names about 4 different brands. I get a strange look and ask her may I get a box of each. She starts setting them all 4 boxes on the counter stacking them on top of each other. She reaches out to grab the first box but I cover all 4 boxes and pull them towards me and start reading the front and back of the boxes. She ask me "Well have you decided which ones you would like?" With a straight and serious face I look her in the eyes and ask her "Where are your fitting rooms located?"
Must be loyal, have MORALS and respect others. I am not saying you have to respect everyone. Hell some people are not worth a breath of air.
I am a simple person with a complex background. I love to goof off and cut up. So If you are to stuck up and not into having fun it will not work. Do not need someone who is going to whine and babble I can make a fun time out of 2 empty boxes.
Far as myself I am not sure what I like far as fun etc because I always tried to make someone else happy. But I do like fishing and some hunting when I can get away meaning usually a big trip it is not like I sit and wait for a season to open up here.. The best trip I have taken so far was to Argentina, Buenos Aires to go dove hunting. I do not like to half ass stuff I believe if you are going to do something it is worth doing right. I enjoy the whole "idea" of the family life. Nothing beats setting at the dinner table with the kids and listening to them tell on each other and hearing there stories. I enjoyed traveling around the world when I was in Iraq and Afghanistan. I got to see a lot of places, Paris, Amsterdam, Dubai, Kuwait and Germany to name a few. I am easy going I do not have to be on the go 23 hours of the day I can stay at the house there is always work that can be done or I can go go go. I am not into the bar scene as it seems they are more of a meat market. But I do not mind going out with friends intent on having fun not chasing women. I am not a big drinker. You would never see me stopping at the 7/11 after work and buying a beer.
I would like my match to have a good head on her shoulders (Yeah right seems this is hard to find) and is not a needy, take care of me type as I think in this day in age it takes two. I do not mind taking care of my women but would like her to bring something to the table besides a pretty face ;)
Also sometimes I am a bit gun shy on sending the first message. There is a quote by Bob Marley that I really like it is about a woman. Quote is below.and it can go both ways. Just take the "s" off the she. But it kind of sums up what I am really looking for.
“If she's amazing, she won't be easy. If she's easy, she won't be amazing. If she's worth it, you wont give up. If you give up, you're not worthy. ... Truth is, everybody is going to hurt you; you just gotta find the ones worth suffering for.”
Just message me and let us see how we compare, I am not into rushing or forcing it to work. Start out getting to know one another and just be honest. No childish games. Example = everything seems to be going great then one day one of us just stops, no more messaging, texting and voice and never an explanation of why.". Get to know each other via pof, text and voice etc
