I'm giving this another shot. I am taking my search Canada wide, I don't believe in putting limits on finding happiness...
First and foremost, I have a daughter that I am VERY involved with. I share custody with her mother 50/50. She is my only child and is my priority. She is the reason I get out of bed every day. I'm not looking for a mother for her, she already has one. I'm looking for someone that is,(in time)willing to hang out with her and being a positive role model to her. We are a package deal. But only when the time for introductions is right. This won't happen right away.
I am a flight attendant,(yes, you read that correctly) so I am not always home. My schedule is not routine, so getting together can take serious planning. I don't want this to deter anyone, unless they are not serious about meeting up. I have limited time and will make every effort to get out and see someone. So they should too. I refuse to be the only one doing all the work. Relationships involve TWO people. I will make it worth your while.
I am honest and faithful. I speak my mind, but am not harsh. I am sensitive to other peoples feelings. But don't ask me a question unless you are looking for an honest answer. I enjoy physical contact, cuddling, holding hands, kissing. I like public displays of affection, as long as it's within reason. I am a die hard romantic. I remember the little details and big deals. I won't buy you flowers every day, but I will always go the extra mile to make my significant other feel special and wanted. And yes, I will kill spiders upon request.
I'm very patient. Some of my friends constantly comment about how laid back I am. I don't like to fight, but will fight the good fight if it's necessary. But it takes A LOT to get me wound up.
I'm a guy. I do guy things. I hunt, I fish, I enjoy some sporting events, I barbeque like nobody's business. I don't expect you to care about any of these, but if you do and even want to join me, that's a bonus. I like to go out when I can, but don't care for bars. A patio in the summer, a pool hall, a lounge or somewhere with some good live music is more my style. I was a bouncer for 7 years, so night clubs are not my thing.
I have tattoos. I don't know how many because over the years I have had some cover ups and add ons. I'm not covered, but am planning on getting more.
I love to cook. I've been told I'm quite good at it. My baking has gotten better, but there's always room for improvement.
I'm not on any strict diets, but try to maintain a healthy lifestyle. I'm looking for someone with similar interests. You don't have to go to the gym every day, I certainly don't. But someone that is relatively active is what I'm looking for. I have trained in jiu-jitsu and muay thai.
Chocolate. I love it. I have considered trading my child for it. If you have a mini egg collection, consider it gone. You've now been warned.
I enjoy most any music. I'm not a fan of screamo, although I will pay them their respect as talented musical artists. It's just not my style. My all time favorite band is U2.
I have a great sense of humor. I enjoy joking around and can take it just as well as I can dish it out. I'm considered witty and sarcastic, but it's all in good fun and never meant to hurt. I love making others laugh, even if it's at my own expense. But be careful, I am a master of practical jokes.
I enjoy history. One of my goals is to tour Europe, to see the many places that defined history, Dieppe, Normandy, Vimy, London, Berlin, etc...
I enjoy the great outdoors, camping or heading to my cottage. Relaxing on the dock with a cup of coffee in the morning watching the sun rise, sipping a glass of red wine watching the sun set. Lake life is grand.
Now if you've actually made it this far, congrats! There's just a few more things that I want to say about me and what I'm looking for.
I know anybody can say anything they want about themselves on a computer. All I can say to whoever reads this is that lying about who I am won't get me anywhere in life. I know what I'm all about. If you want to know who I am and what I'm all about, there's only one way. You have to take a chance, come out from behind your computer and meet me.
About you: (it will be easier to list what I am NOT looking for...)
-someone that can't talk without turning it into a fight
-someone who constantly drinks to escape reality
-doesn't like kids (I have one)
-doesn't like cats (I have one of those too)
-has unresolved feelings for an ex
-can't bring themselves to getting off POF
-thinks Facebook is real life.
-someone with "trust issues". I'm not your ex, I didn't screw you over. Please don't treat me like I am. I will give you the same respect. My job takes me to other cities. Trust is imperative.
So on that note, if there's anything more you want to know or if there's something that I've missed, drop me a line. I'd be glad to chat.
**At 20, a man has the face he was born with. At 40, he has the face that he has earned.**
And what's the deal with "favorites"? I don't understand. If you're going to add me to your favorites, the least you could do is send me a message. If I don't hear from you, I will delete myself off your list. Sorry.
As for those asking if there is any good guys left or if chivalry is dead, there's many good guys left, and chivalry is NOT dead. You're just not looking in the right places. The good ones are the ones that you choose to ignore. If you really want a good guy, don't expect him to just fall into your lap. You have to put in the effort as well. Maybe saying this will offend some or you'll completely disagree and think I'm a jerk. So be it, but then I'm just being realistic.
