Life really is like a box of chocolates and you don't know what you are going to get.... but the bottom line is.... you are still getting chocolate. So unless you hate chocolate or are allergic (sorry for your luck), enjoy the good chocolate with the bad chocolate and when you get the peanut butter kind..... give it to me cause they are my favorites.
I'm 33, age isn't really a big deal to me, but being mature and having your life together is. I am not interested in someone who is emotionally unavailable, or still has feelings for an ex. Everyone has history, but if you don't learn from your mistakes, then history will repeat itself.
This is my first time trying an online dating site, but meeting people is so much harder when you are a parent with a career. As I said, I am the father of a beautiful, intelligent 5 year old girl. I have 50/50 custody of her and she is my number one priority. I am not looking to find a mom for her, she already has one. What I am looking for, is someone honest, loyal, and understanding that I can spend my free time with. If at some point things become serious, then and only then would I feel comfortable having you meet her. In the mean time I want to put the focus on a relationship built on friendship and common interests as well as great chemistry.
Ok, a little bit about me. I have incredible character and values that I learned from my awesome parents and family. As I said before, loyalty is very important to me as well as honesty. Cheating is unacceptable in a relationship, and if you think otherwise, be sure to tell me so that I can stop talking to you. I love the outdoors, and I am hoping to find someone who will be the reason I leave my house to do something exciting. I love to go hiking, biking and four-wheeling, especially in the fall when it is cool and the leaves are changing. But I also love watching movies and certain TV shows....DVR is great when you have children.... I am not ashamed to say I can sing the My Little Pony theme song, but it's nice to be able to watch my favs whenever I have the time. So if you like snuggling up an watching movies, I have the perfect place! My den is a mini theater with a super comfy couch, and we can watch anything you want... except My Little Pony.
I find it amusing that so many women have had such bad experiences on here that they have to specify that they are looking for someone with a car, and a job. Maybe I should have put this at the beginning so that it's out there right away. I have a great job that pays well and yes I do have a car. As far as what I drive, well that's not important. I promise that I won't pick you up in a 1983 VW Rabbit. (Even though they are fun, I drove one once)
As far as what I am looking for in a woman, I've already told you the most important things. In addition to those traits, I want someone that can accept me for who I am and forgive me when I do stupid guy stuff like forgetting to put the toilet seat down. I am pretty self sufficient these days, I can cook, clean, sort my own laundry, iron my own clothes, clean my sheets and make my bed. I don't need a woman to take care of me, I am more so looking for someone for me to take care of and maybe someday share in these responsibilities.... Well mainly just folding clothes, I hate doing that, I'd rather clean toilets than fold clothes.
Sooooo, if you have a sense of humor and you are looking for someone to spend time with that will make you laugh and who is a truly genuine person with a good head on his shoulders, then send me a message and maybe we can go out sometime.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
I would want to go out for something to eat so that we could talk and get to know each other better. It would also be nice to do something afterwards that would be fun, but would still allow us to continue a conversation.
