Ok, about me. I'm a very honest, straight forward person. I don't lie (it's to exhausting remembering the lies you told), I don't cheat (that's just disrespectful) and I have zero tolerance for those that do. I do have a great sense of humor, I can carry on a conversation with just about anyone and I can fit comfortably into any social setting. I find myself talking to stranger, and often offer random compliments to people I pass.
I'm from the south, so I have that southern hospitality laid back thing going on. It takes a lot to annoy me, but it happens. My pet peeves are bad grammar and tardiness.
I love to read, walk around the lakes (in warm months) workout, dance, listen to live music, hike, travel to name a few. Fitness and health are extremely important to me. For me it's not a fad, but a lifestyle. Anyone I would be involved with would need to share this commitment.
Charity work is my passion. I do a fair amount of volunteering during the year. Note Bullfrog Bash photo, a charity gala of which I'm on the planning board. I'm also involved with a couple of organizations related to my field -- commercial real estate.
I have three wonderful boys who are very protective of their mom. One is out on his own (in the Army actually), and the other 2 no longer want to spend a ton of time with Mom.
I don't chat with men who don't post recent photos or offer to send one via email prior to beginning a real conversation. I also do not chat with married men (note cheat comment above), or anyone interested in a 'booty call', FWB or any other similar arrangement. My 20's are way in my past.
Questions? Just ask.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Just do it. Endless emails get are a waste of everyone's time. If you're not going to follow through, then please don't bother asking to meet me. And if you meet me & I'm not your thing, just say it. Don't just ignore me & I'll do the same for you. We're presumably all grown ups & can be honest & candid. Right??
