I really do find it extremely difficult talking about myself, but here goes. I am a father to three beautiful girls and two beautiful step-daughters (I still consider them part of my family even though their mother and I are no longer together) and they are NOT "baggage", they are my family. I share custody of them with their mother part time. I am a little reserved around people I don’t know but once I know you and trust you, I am really open and engaging. I have a good and at times irreverent sense of humor and I can find the humor in almost any occasion. I am intelligent, honest, loyal and monogamous. I was raised to open doors for women, give up my seat to the elderly and to not swear around my mother. I don’t do drugs or drink excessively (a bottle of beer on occasion). I don’t gamble or smoke. I don’t like nightclubs but I do like comedy clubs. I don’t like housework but I do like working on my house. I don’t like to cook but I don’t mind helping to cut the onions or open the pickle jar. I am more or less a homebody but I do like to go out and have a good time once in a while with the right person/people. I am prone to public displays of affection and I am not opposed to holding hands. If we click and I like you I will tell you frequently in both words and gestures and I will brag about you to my friends. If you have a good day, I will be excited for you and listen intently as you tell me all about it. If you have a bad day, I will hold you (or leave you alone if that is what you need). If you get sick (or drunk) I will hold your hair.
I am looking for someone to ultimately spend the rest of my life with. I don’t like to “date”. I’m not interested in going out with several different women for short periods of time. I want a long lasting fulfilling relationship; to be one half of a greater whole. I am interested in/attracted to the kind of woman who is kind to children (as I have stated above, I have my own), funny, intelligent, beautiful (to me) and faithful. She can laugh at herself, not just at me. She is affectionate and is not shy about expressing her affection and enjoys it when I “express” mine (I have been guilty of stealing hugs from behind her as she cooks or puts on make up or bends over to pull clothes out of the dryer). She is feminine but at the same time not high maintenance. Ideally, she will love to cook and do housework as, as I have stated above, I do not. But, if not, then I guess we will have to share those chores.
I could go on and on, but then we’d have nothing to talk about when we meet.
I hope we meet sooner than later.
