Hi, there. Thanks for looking at my profile!
Great guy looking for someone to hang with me and Buddy. 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 actually have my crap together. Bills are paid. Treat people well. Not lazy. Street smarts as well as book smarts. I'm quick witted, love to laugh, open, honest, and giving.
I am looking for someone honest, intelligent, 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. You might not know it from the music and lights. LOL
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. The running joke is that I need to write a book. Maybe? 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. But, someone closer to my age would be nice for common interests and outlook on the world in this stage of our lives. 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. 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 would definitely call myself a "Foodie". I love to try new things. When I travel, far or near, I enjoy hitting grocery stores. You learn a lot about a culture or a region by whats on the shelves. I do find myself a little critical of restaurants.... I am a good cook. I want to go places that do things I can't... or at least haven't tried. That being said, I LOVE it when other people cook for me. I tend to cook a lot for my friends. LOL
I am turning this into the dream home I have always wanted. Over the last couple years, I have done some renovations and have a couple more planned. Love to hit auctions, flea markets, antique stores, and estate sales. Some of that is for my own eclectic tastes in decorating... some for hobbies. I do work with my hands quite a bit. I love to garden, tinker, fix things, and refinish furniture. I would even say I have an artistic streak.
Planning a few trips here very soon. Wanting to head on a long road trip out West in the next month or so. Taking Buddy and planning to see friends and family along the way. Also, planning a Florida trip for after the first of the year to visit one of my besties. 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. Weather permitting, a little picnic in the park with a bottle of wine, some cheese and crusty bread would be a great way to break the ice. Otherwise, a nice casual dinner somewhere we could relax and talk would be fine.
