So, I've done the online thing on and off for a while. It's hard to get to know someone in writing. I'm not great at it (I think most people aren't.) It gets repetitive; and everything we write is surface stuff. So type me a detailed message about yourself, or have a detailed profile, and what resonates with you about my profile. And let's set up a walk in a park, or a snack somewhere, and talk in person. The Net narrowed the search for us; let's explore connections and see what there is to see. I will make time for you. A woman is worth more to me than any other use of my free time.
I recently moved here from Massachusetts. I have a job, I'll be getting my own apartment soon, and I have a car that I can drive and everything. I am not the kind of guy who has double masters degrees, bikes 800 miles a day, travels to every country in existence plus 2 others, or volunteers at orphanages playing the Spanish guitar. Instead, I do normal things like go to work, hike, read books and watch movies, petting nice animals, watching the sunset and figuring out what to have for supper. I also play chess and collect pistols and target shoot. All of this, I would prefer to do with someone I love, and I'm open to much more. We don't need to have common interests; we just need to try each other's interests together, and find new ones. I am mostly introverted, I stand back to watch other people scramble and create drama and try to learn from their mistakes without making my own. I am fascinated by trees, and lightning storms, and starry nights. I love autumn; crisp jacket weather, colorful leaves, hot chocolate and apple cider, pumpkins and remembering the childhood spookiness of Halloween. (I'm very susceptible to nostalgia.) I'm reliable and loyal, have a love of sarcasm. I see most things in life as either black or white, and only sometimes with a touch of gray. With things I care about, I put great focus and energy into it. Most importantly to many, I'm not an ***hole. I'm not going to betray my partner, let her down on purpose, or lie to her. I communicate, I'm thoughtful, I say when something's wrong and we talk it through. She would side with me, and I with her, against the world when it comes down to the wire. Sometimes it will, and I need that to be reflected in her.
The woman I'm looking for: Probably introverted, capable and independent, enjoys bantering and teasing each other, and mature enough to be above drama and pettiness. Who believes in and practices great communication, feels that setting aside time each day for intimacy is essential, and believes that we should strive to do more for our partner then we do for ourselves. Wicked short hair and/or unnatural colored hair is also a huge attraction.
Please consider whether this fits you and your ideals, be in decent shape, no kids, hard drugs, or smokers. The right girl is somewhere in this cityscape, so lets find out if we click.
I really would rather have a first date as quickly as comfortably possible after making written contact. I don't answer/write to people who have short or nonexistent profiles, so if we're talking then I already have a high interest.
What I tend to do is this: A long walk somewhere for icebreaking. The ocean, an easy hiking trail, off a short pier. This should be enough time to see if the person is right. After that, we can do anything, typically dinner if we're still interested, as long as everything I ask you isn't "I don't know." (That was long date, for sure)
