I'm 5'10", 150-155lbs slim to average build. No belly to speak of...and no 6-pack...sorry.;-) No tatoos or piercings.
I'm very casual and laid-back. I have old-school values and beliefs. I'm a hopeless romantic searching for emotional and physical bliss. Yet I strive to be leading edge with technology and the improvements available. Old-school and leading edge...a paradox that fits me well.
Not a man of blind faith, I'm a very logical thinker and need to understand the how's and why's for things. Whether it's how things work, or what makes a person do what they do. There is a logical reason for everything...IF you have the patience, tenacity, resources, and courage to seek the true reasons and not just settle for the easy answers. Likewise, I do not accept easy answers/excuses from my partner. If you give me what I think is an easy answer or excuse, I'll want to talk about it and sort it out...maybe not right then, but we will revisit the issue most likely sooner than later.
I want a true partner. I want to share everything bad or good together. We may have our differences, but will always know when we go to sleep that the other is still going to be there...tomorrow and the next day...no matter what. There will always be a tomorrow to talk about the real answers and sort things out and make things right.
There is a big difference between loving a person for who they are vs loving a person for what they can do for you. Loving a person in the right ways and for the right reasons...makes accepting their actions which may be hurtful or annoying much easier. And when I love someone, it makes me want to do things for her that I might not normally do or might not have even thought to do before. And when I love someone, all the others become invisible...as it should be. I am very monogamous. I wear my heart on my sleeve and show affection in public and private but not clingy.
Let's be real here for a minute. Physical attraction is important plain and simple. My ideal match would be 5'7" or less with slim to average build...and not the 'new' average but rather the real average. Age (younger or older) is not important...assuming you can keep up with me.;-) No tatoos up to a couple tasteful and strategically/discretely placed. Ear piercings are fine...any other piercings will most likely be a big turn-off for me. Why would a woman want to mess up her natural beauty with tats and piercings all over? As far as looks go...I can find natural beauty in almost any woman. Less makeup and jewelry is far more with me. A little...used in the right way...is a BIG turn-on for me. Understated and not trying to be a diva or look like someone different...gets me to notice every single time...it's what I look for...and what makes me say WOW! The women with all the makeup and bling and overly bubbly personality...they're the noise that I filter out...to look for the understated confident secure ones. I am so much more interested in the real person underneath the makeup and bling...the one I want to wake up with in the morning...and the one I want to see when we're just kicking around the house or whatever...the one that excites me and makes me smile just thinking about her.
I have extremely unique and diversified hobby and professional backgrounds. But you'll have to find out about all that later. Suffice for now to say I'm a jack of many trades and a master of a few of them...so to speak.
Just saw Neil Diamond (one of my all-time favs) at The Knob this past summer with my youngest daughter, son and others. I appreciate all genres of music as long as I can hear the words if singing is involved. I do not like heavy metal or rap...like I said...I appreciate music.
I almost bleed green and have 2 daughters and a son-in-law graduated from MSU. So if you are a green fan, you'll most likely fit right in. If you're blue or any other color, it won't hurt, but you might want to be ready for some good-spirited sparring. Go GREEN!!! Smell the rosey victory!!
I'm also a BIG Tigers fan and a fan of baseball at all levels from t-ball to pro. And a Lions and Redwings fan to a lesser degree. Just can't get into basketball. The Tigers '14 season was a disappointment...we'll get 'em next year.;-)
I have a country/rural lifestyle. I've "done my time" in large, medium, and small cities and always hated it. I like space between me and the next house. And I like puttering in the yard. It can even be a ton of fun if doing it with a special someone.
This is likely larger than many/most profiles. But it's only a glimpse of the person I am...the tip of the iceberg. You'll have to spend some time with me to learn the 90% under the water line.
Could you be my partner? Can you broaden my horizons as I might do for you? If I seem like someone you might be interested in, send me a POF mail message. I'll always respond to anyone who shows an interest. And I promise I won't bite...at least not until after a date or two.;-) Come talk to me! We can start with some mail exchanges, then maybe a first date, then maybe we can start hanging together and see how it goes.
Please have more than a couple sentences in your profile, and at least one recent pic. I've put myself out here big time...investing in finding the right person for me. If your profile seems like you're not ready/willing to invest a minimum effort, then I'm not likely to respond positively to those with little profile info and no pic..sorry. And please do not have a silly statement in your profile such as "I like to have fun". Duh...really? I wish I could thwap each person who has that in their profile.;-) C'mon girls...tell us guys about YOU...the person. It won't hurt you...but it will help to find the right one...and it will work toward convincing me that you have at least a minimum of self-awareness. And don't just focus on your activities/hobbies/etc. Tell us a little about that stuff. But tell us MUCH more about you the person. A very small percentage of the women on here actually do that well...and they're the ones who attract my attention...and the ones I always enjoy reading...and the ones I'm likely to reach out to if it seems we might be a good match.
I am serious about finding my partner. If you are not serious or you play games or you don't walk your talk (you lie whenever your lips move)...then move on...don't waste my time and yours. If I'm not one of your biggest priorities, I will walk away...and there will not be any second chances.

I'm assuming this is our first "meet & greet"....
Any activity that is casual and low-key. As simple as coffee or drinks or a meal or a nice walk/hike. Or it could be a fair or regional activity (Michigan Challenge Balloonfest, Thunder Over Michigan, Woodward Dream Cruise, etc). Or we could do the Zoo or Henry Ford Museum or Greenfield Village. I'm also open to any suggestions you might have. Whatever as long as it's not too loud and is conducive to conversation and being at ease. It's to get to know and appreciate each other and maybe feel the 'spark' right?
