I want someone who is in it for the long haul. I'm originally a Midwestern boy, grew up on a farm in Iowa. Moved to Texas in 1985. This is and always will be home for me.
My friends say I have a weird sense of humor. I personally think if you can't mess with someones head once in a while , it takes the fun out of it
I'm not much of a drinker, I do enjoy a cold beer or a glass of wine, but Diet Coke is one of the 4 basic food groups as far as I'm concerned.
I'm not going to lie and say I'm baggage free, none of us are at this stage in life. It's how we deal with it that defines a persons character. I'm told that I'm a character so I guess I'm doing ok.
I would love to be able to travel more, I have a bucket list (there's and app for that). I want to go to all the usual destinations, and some not so usual, Unusual would be the word, and probably for some unusual reasons, not bizarre or frightening, just "slightly off the typical zero bubble". I would be glad to share the list when the time comes.
More now then ever, I believe that good health is essential which is why I have lost 90 pounds over the last year and one half, and plan to keep going until I hit my optimal weight and then keep it there. I made a new years resolution not to lose weight so I knew the diet would work, nobody keeps new years resolutions, right? I think I have finally lost enough weight to be about average. I have a big frame, but have gone from a size 46 to a size 40 jean. I let my health slip for a number of years for no good reason, but I am back on track and I am going to stay there. My only addiction is Diet Coke, could be worse, don't you think?
I absolutely hate taking pictures. I am the least photogenic person in the known universe. The upside is that at least I don't come out looking like shrek, do I?
I have finally gotten out of retail and have found something with normal hours. Wierd to have most of my weekends off, but I will have to learn to deal with it
My ideal women is not perfect, just someone who causes a mutual spark when we first meet. Someone who always gives the benefit of the doubt and backs me as I would her. I want someone whose face shows me that they are genuinely happy to see me when I walk into the room. And the rest as they say will be history. Intimacy seems to be an issue with some women, at least initially. To clear that issue, I am not looking for a one nighter. I won't be intimate with someone unless I feel it's someone I could wake up beside for the rest of my life, I would have to be convinced she feels the same about me.
FYI for all the ladies out there who dislike facial hair. The beard is optional, I would shave for the right person. Relationships are give and take, right. I'm willing to compromise on certain issues.
I'm not a paying member right now and therefore cannot read or respond to messages at this time
All for now
