Single dad of an 8 year old girl, looking for some one who wants to form a long term relationship. I've been divorced for a few years now and am really ready to find some one to spend time with. I enjoy cooking, reading, yard work, working on my cars, travel, dining out, movies, art projects, playing with my daughter, evening drives by the lake, and the occasional nap. I also hope to get back into boating soon and am really missing the water this summer.
I hope to find some one who enjoys to travel by plane, car, and train, locally and to distant shores. Some one who enjoys food, gourmet, comfort, exotic and home made, both making and eating. Some one with a sense of humor, who will laugh at my stupid jokes, or at least humor my senses. Some one who values home life allot and appreciates nights out even more when able to escape the house. Some one who is kind, not self centered, and giving but enjoys some one who enjoys giving in return. Some one young at heart, but mature enough to know that they are too dam old (or busy) to party to 3am every weekend any longer. Some one who has a life, but who's life has enough room in it for a guy who wants to be a big part of that life. And finally and most importantly, some one who wants to spend there time and life with me.
After having done the internet dating thing for some time I've come to some conclusions. Reading many profiles, I see a trend in what women are looking for, personality traits mostly. Unfortunately these traits are also a very strong indicator of a guy who will cheat or play games....surprise surprise. Not to say there aren't any witty, confident, outgoing, stable, edgy, gentlemanly, etc, etc. etc., dudes out there who won't cheat or play games, but the reality is those guys are either already married or spoken for. So my suggestion for the ladies out there is..... let some one find you who is acceptable....not perfect...not perfect for you, not two steps above your pay grade, some one who you wouldn't dump a drink on there head if you meant them in real life...... and see what happens. The other suggestion is, if you do find some one acceptable, get off the sites...a real person has a whole lot more warts then a profile with a flowery intro message attached to it, and if you let your self continue to see those other hills, and I know there are a lot of them....your going to come down from the hill your on to look for that greener grass. Sermon over.
