First off... I do not lie. I do not have a good enough memory to lie. Even if I did... I still would not lie. I don't like trying to keep up with BS stories. Everything I have written here is the truth.
Great guy looking for someone to hang with me and Buddy. Finding my love for boxers and planning on getting a female boxer puppy very soon. I have a wide variety of interests. I always try to stay busy. Sometimes I like to stay at home, but often just pick up and go.
I busted my ass and retired at 37. Need someone honest, intelligent, not a gold digger, has freedom but self supportive. I will try just about anything once, you should too. I have traveled around the world, and I don't plan on stopping. I do not put up with drama, baggage or BS. I keep my home calm... well, pretty calm.
I have gone through A LOT the last couple of years. But, I came out of it all standing up strong and learned a lot. I enjoy life to the fullest, and have gotten to that place in my life where I enjoy waking up every single morning to take on what the world throws at me. I am a true and loyal friend. I look for friends for life. Those who I trust enough to bring into my life are there for the good times as well as the bad.... and I am there for them.
I am a straight forward guy. I say it like it is. I also tend to say the things others won't. Sometimes it gets me in a little heat, usually a chuckle. I have a wild sense of humor and no topic is off limits. My friends and I throw jabs at each other, as well as ourselves... all in good fun. Being lied to is an extremely big pet peeve. I am honest, so I expect the same treatment. Besides, I often say, "I can't make this crap up." Life is interesting enough. LOL
I am a talker. I love conversations. Seems to be an art that is dying. Not a fan of texting and IMing. I like someone to look me in the eye and talk to me, and I with them. I really have nothing to hide. I love to tell stories about things done and want to do. I want to know about you as well. I listen even better then I talk. LOL
I am open to all ages of ladies.... as long as we mix well. I consider myself a gentleman, and even a romantic. Not that I am a ladies man, but I try to do nice things and think about how to better myself when it comes to women. I am not the bad boy who needs to be changed, but no angel either. I party occasionally. Not really into the bar scene because I think most of them suck. I am more interested in smaller gatherings with friends. I always make room for people to crash here instead of them driving.
I consider myself a good cook, intelligent, quick witted, love to laugh, open, honest, and giving. Just added a big second story deck to my house and I LOVE to spend time on it! I just finished a major remodeling project in the house. I am turning this into the dream home I have always wanted. Love to hit auctions, flea markets, antique stores, and estate sales.
Planning a few trips here very soon. I went camping in the Redwoods of northern California. Even more recently, I returned from a road trip to Texas with my dog, Buddy, to visit family and friends. Went to Las Vegas to fulfill the last wishes of a friend. Just got back from Florida after two weeks in the sun to get away from cold and snow. Alaska next summer? Can you keep up?
Thanks for taking a look at my profile. Feel free to ask me questions.
I want to get to know you. I want to talk to you and listen to you. I want a calm relaxing setting. My idea of a perfect first date would be a picnic at a local park. Break out a bottle of wine, some cheese and crusty bread, maybe some deli goodies, and something sweet for dessert. Nothing heavy... not even the conversation. Tell me what you feel comfortable telling me, and feel free to ask me questions. I really have nothing to hide. The standard dinner and a movie are too cliche and just make it difficult to talk.
