I'm ridiculously funny but you wouldn't know it until about the 3rd or 4th date by which time you'll either have decided that yes I am funny or that I'm just a "funny person". Either way I'll be funny and coincidentally happy and possibly still single.
I'm also rather generous and I like to help people out. For example I will warn you now that I date "up". What that means is that if you're looking at this profile and my one sad picture thinking "I'm too good looking for that guy what will my friends think?" it's ok because you can tell them "He dates up." - see how I helped you out there?. Helpful that's me.
Seriously though I would like to say that I've finally grown up and I think I'm ready to spend time with other grown ups. It took me a LONG time to get here so everything isn't nicely packed in that box just yet ( you know the one where everyone always says they've got their sh*t together?! ) but I'm getting there. My bills are paid, I have some savings ( which means you won't have to pay for all the dates or the gas ), I have my own place, and I don't sit around 2 days from payday wondering where all my money went.
I'm not interested in playing games ( other than Monopoly, Risk, Scrabble, and Xbox occasionally ). I am not looking for the woman who thinks it's more important to tell me that she can't go to dinner because I didn't invite her 3 days in advance when she's just going to end up staying home alone that evening anyway. We all have busy schedules, jobs that eat up more hours than they should, obligations to our children, and things we just have to take care of. Sometimes the opportunity for a nice evening just presents itself. I'm not saying that's how the first date will be - no notice - I'm saying once we've gotten to know each other and things are going along swimmingly we should take chances to enjoy ourselves. Of course I may have misread that rule book and it probably says in there that this rule only applies to the first 3 dates or fractions thereof.
Also you don't have to be mysterious all the time - I will like you even if you aren't all that mysterious. I will continue to talk to you and call you and want to see you regardless of your mysteriousness - just be interesting or interested in me and the mystery will take care of itself. However please keep the door closed when you use the restroom - that can remain a mystery...
This has been a tough year for me but I would have to say it's also been one of my best as far as personal growth and attitude are concerned. Around the 4th date we'll talk about it but until then it shall remain a mystery. Oh my a contradiction in terms. What can I say I am a Gemini after all.
I have a soft spot for Pisces and Aries women. I have dated taller women before but conversely if you're a bit taller you have to be comfortable with a shorter guy. I do not discriminate based on height. I technically could be considered a Republican but my ex-wife was a Democrat ( not my ex because of politics ) and every woman I've ever dated or hung out with in Portland has been a Democrat. So I'm either the most liberal Republican there is or it really just doesn't matter - I'll leave that to you to decide.
I have two sons who live with their mother in a town not too far away. However it is far enough away that I only see them twice a month. They are 18 and 15 and they're good boys. They are my kids and I love them.
Just remember that just because I'm dating up it doesn't mean you're dating down - it just means that you're an open minded, well rounded individual with a zest for life who may have found the frog who is actually a prince. ;)
