I always thought dating sites were for desperate people so how ironic, here I am trying one. I am 53 years old (I've been told I look younger) I am interested in meeting a slender, attractive lady without major baggage who appreciates kids and isn't into drama. Life is way too short. I am sensitive (believe it or not), emotional, and not afraid or ashamed to show it, but at the same time I'm strong. I was trained to kill in the military (thankfully I never had to), but I can watch a sad movie or have my son tell me he loves me and tear up. I'm a walking paradox. Two expressions that describe me are "do not mistake my kindness for weakness" and "respect all fear none". Unlike a lot of guys I believe in actually talking about things that are on my mind. I have a great sense of humor and I'm basically a goofball and a kid at heart. I like to text back and forth. I'm very laid back and honest (sometimes brutally honest but I believe in telling it like it is). I wear my heart on my sleeve. Yes I'm lonely but not desperate (I'd rather stay single than have to deal with major drama and baggage) I'm not interested in NSA or FWB, however, I do believe physical attraction is important. I have a 13 year old son who I share custody of and he is the most important thing in my life so being "kid friendly" is crucial. I always try to set a good example for him with the limited time I have him. I have a job, I work hard, I take care of myself (I go to the gym at least twice a week) and I'm very responsible. I am a biker at heart, I have some tattoos, I love to ride my Harley and would like to have the right lady to ride with me. I have a backseat available :) I would never use the term "old lady" to describe my woman; I think that is demeaning and disrespectful. I don't really have any hobbies but I'm always willing to try something new and broaden my horizons. From what I've seen I guess a lot of guys on POF are liars and fools but I'm not one of them. I am what I appear, warts and all. I'm nowhere near perfect but I am actually an honest, decent guy. Women are always complaining that it's hard to meet a nice guy, well, that's exactly what I am. I do like sports (especially football...Go Gators go Bucs), movies, the beach, road trips, live music, having a cold beer or a few drinks occasionally. I like all types of music but prefer rock n roll. Going out is good but staying in is cool too. If you're interested drop me a line and let's see what happens. I would like nothing better than to meet the right lady and shut this thing down for good but until that happens I'll keep looking...
I will reply to any message sent but please don't contact me if you are a stalker, are desperate for a man, or are unsure of whether or not you still want to be with your ex. Don't waste my time or yours. Also, if you read my profile and you're interested, please take 2 minutes and send a message instead of the "I'd like to meet you" nonsense
Also...What's up with not replying to messages? I'm a very respectful guy and I would never make any kind of lewd or sexual comment to anyone on here so I don't understand not having the decency to reply. If youre not interested just say so. I find that pretty rude but maybe that's just me. And BLOCKING me?? Why the hell would somebody block a person after sending one RESPECTFUL message?? I guess I just don't understand "dating site etiquette". Sure seems irrational to me...
