I'm a very open and honest guy who isn't afraid to put my heart out there for the special girl I'll end up with some day. I'm in no hurry. I do my best to live a fruitful life which means I try to love everyone, pray for myself and other people, help people, treat others how I would like to be treated. I don't believe having sex before marriage is ok although it's so very hard to do! God made each of us very special and I think it's a slap in His face to use people and hurt people to get what you want. I see much more than just a person when I see people. I see a special creation of God that should be treated with love and respect. It isn't always easy with some people, but who am I to judge? I don't think I'm better than anyone. I'm special and unique in my own way. The way God made me:) I quit smoking 2 years ago after smoking for over half of my life, I prefer to not be with a smoker because now that I no longer smoke, I realize how nasty and stinky it is. If you've ever kissed a smoker and you're not one yourself, you know what I mean! I don't think you're a bad person if you smoke. I just prefer not to be with, or kiss a smoker anymore.
We all have issues and baggage from our past and that's ok if you don't let it ruin our relationship. I'm a very patient and understanding guy, but if you're not over your ex, or you're still bitter about what he did to you then that will probably be a problem. People who hold on to their past issues usually start to see the new person as the old person that hurt them and that just isn't fair. The new person becomes an innocent victim because of what someone else did. And because you wouldn't let the past go. My dissolution was almost 5 years ago so I've had plenty of time to forgive my ex wife and plenty of time to learn from the mistakes I made in the marriage. Lucky for you!
So anyway, I would love to hear all about you and what you want in a guy and in life. If you have kids that's ok because I love kids very much! I have 2 boys of my own who are 8 and 11. I hope you enjoyed reading my profile and I look forward to getting to know you better:)
My idea of the best first date would be to take you out on my boat and have a boat picnic. Then watch the sunset while having nice conversation. But since that will probably be our 2nd date, maybe meet for lunch and see if we click.
