I was recently diagnosed with diabetes. It is a very controllable but lifelong disease. It is not communicable and ordinarily would be my private business, but I do not want to hit it off with you and it be the basis for pumping your breaks up to and including stopping progression. If this isn't for you, cool. But with HIV, Herpes and other diseases that are being hidden that you can spread on the rise, diabetes seems like a drop in a bucket.
I never really know what to say or what may peak the interest of the kind of woman I seek. I am a hard-working man. I am a father of two sons whom I love dearly. I have them full-time. I make time for them and they know that I am their number one fan. I do not have any drama-like issues with their mom.
I enjoy going to flea markets, estate sales and thrift shops. I don't always buy; I don't always have anything in mind to buy when I go either. In the past, it was private time for me, but I think I'd be interested in having a companion share my hobby.
I am thinking of returning to school in the next year or two. I see a terminal degree in my future. I have set some priorities and it is on the list for sure, but it is not numnber one.
I like different types of music. I will amaze you with the random mix I have been exposed to over the years.
I went to Appalachian State University and was a scholarship athlete there. I love my school and think it is one of North Carolina's hidden wonders! I sing in a male chorus. Though I have a white collar job, I work with my hands very well. I am easy going for the most part, but I do get hot around the collar for some things (messing with my kids, my money, those I care about). I go to church weekly.
In short, I find we make time for the people and the things we want to make time for as a part of dating and growing. I don't seek to hog or abuse anyone's time and I expect the same in return. I prefer the phone over email, I understand texting may have to be an option at times, and meeting in person between schedules may take some effort. I am willing, are you?
I don't mind to acquire children, but I ask that 4 be the maximum, and no, I wouldn't want more kids if you have four. I am perfectly okay with not having more children. With a WIFE I am amenable to fathering a child or two; however, I do not want the marriage to exist for the sole purpose of having children.
I want something we can agree to do. I don't mind to plan the evening, but I accept suggestions. Afterall, it could be the beginning of something nice. I like to have the right scale. Sometimes, we click on different levels and a first date should reflect that. I want to get to know you and see your facial expressions. But then, I hope to know a good bit about you already. I will ask questions and hope you do the same. Over dinner would be nice. If the comfort level is there, I would be in favor of a more intimate/quiet meeting place. All in all . . . to be determined.
