Lets try this again... online dating is so strange to me... go through pictures, select picture, read about what person thinks about themself, make decision...
It seriously feels like shopping in a catalogue... not a huge fan however meeting people in bars seems to be even more wothless. That all being said, ill treat this more like an add.
What im looking for:
-Attractive to me.... no that does not mean you have to look like a victoria's secret model.
-drama free, or at least free from drama you can controll. If its really not your fault, its not your fault, i can deal with that.
-independent... I am a single father, I work all summer and get paid to go to college the rest of the year. I dont need someone who is going to freak out if i have to change plans from time to time. (This does not mean i cant make time for someobe else, i make time for people i care about)
-mature, someobe who knows a relationship isnt just a man taking care of a woman. It goes both ways or it fails 100% of the time.
-no hard drugs... underline the word hard (i dont mind people who some pot or drink or anything like that). If you are hooked on heroine... get off of here and go get some help already.
-good intentioned but honest.... lets face it... internet dating is blind dating, no need to waste anyones time, but no reason to hurt anyones feelings either.
-have your own opinion and dont be afrade to speak your mind... i am really laid back and and am fine going about anywhere or doing anything.
Now an honest about me:
Single father, have a son and also raise my sons half sister. The last few years of my life have been really busy so i have not taken care of myself as well as i should therefore, yes i have a "dad bod" if thats a problem, not youre guy. I co parent the kids with my ex wife. No we dont live together or hook up EVER, but we do help each other out, if youre the jealous type or cant understand that, not your guy. I dont have great teeth, no, none are missing. It is what it is, its embarassing, but live with what youve got. If youre one of those people who stare at teeth.... which creeps me out anyway, not youre guy. Im ex military, i've lived all over the country, and have experienced much over the last decade. Sometimes i like to talk, sometimes i like to just sit back and listen. I am very hard to make angry but will soeak my mind. I like to cook, but im not the best at keeping my home clean. Ive had many jobs, ive been a musician, food service manager, barista in seattle, ship navagator, demolition, high school lacrosse coach, bouy tender, harbor master, law enforcment trainer, air conditioning technitian, and now im back in school learning communications. Not the most interesting stuff, i know... i like music, movies, cooking, eating, walking around aimlessly, people, i dont drink all the time but when the kids are gone, i like to have a few. When i do get drunk, i am not an angry drunk.... sometimes a little loud, but never angry.
Last i do like a woman who is assertive, if youre interested, please message me. If im not interested i will tell you, i feel ignoring someone is rude unless someone is being an ass.
Why do people always have these huge, elaborate first date plans? Lets be a bit more realistic here.... we don't even know if we will be able to stand each other yet! I have found going for a walk downtown and figuring it out from there works great. Hang out for a bit, grab some drinks... or hang out for a bit, head home and never speak again lol...
