I realized today that coming here at this time a few days ago is probably a lousy time to look for a sweetie. I believe I have a valid reason! (Isn't there always? I can hear some saying, I've heard it all before!) First, I gotta apologize if I haven't responded to you. (Now, I feel like a pompous fella because I am trying to make you think that I've had many, many ladies attempting to 'hook up' with me!) Well, there's been, at least, one. You see, I recently purchased a house and I've been busy renovating this 'house'. See? Isn't this pretty good? To anyone who will actually get past the 'interview' stage, I will explain why I'm renovating because this house, well, never mind. I almost gave it all away. Sheesh! I can't keep anything to myself.
OK, so for now, I'll stay. I am not from Texas. Many years ago, when I was traveling, I bypassed Texas because the reputation that Texas had in the circles that I hung out in was, to put it nicely, not good. I guess things change. Texas ain't that bad. Maybe my circles were too square and listened too much to the 'word on the street'.
And, now, with no further adieu, a little bit about this fella who likens himself to Charles****ns. BTW, I recently found out that Chuck was kinda of a nut. But, I picked that name for now and I'm stuck with it. Really, it was because I liked the headline. OK, now, I am ready.
I have class. I like Bubble Gum. Preferably 'Dubble Bubble'. My Grandkids turned me onto the flavors. Yowza. I did mention that I like 'Dubble Bubble'. But, I won't turn down 'Bazooka', 'Hubba Bubba' & others. Open to all sorts of different brands. It has been discovered that swallowing bubble gum will NOT hurt you.
A LOT of ladies say that they are old fashioned & want to be treated like a lady. Open doors. Absolutely. Stand when they enter a room. Most certainly. Oh, looks great in heels & an evening dress as well as jeans! But, of course. I, also, would love that. Please. Open. The. Door. And, just for fun, I relax in a suit & tie and kill in a pair of tailored jeans & boots. I am a lot of fun. Yep. I know I am. I tell myself that all the time. Mainly, because I'm the one who I hang out with. My Momma raised a gentleman. I love my Momma.
I know when to be serious. Get ready. It starts now.
I may be rusty about this courting stuff, but I'm not jaded by divorce. Truth is, I'm a decent guy who's looking for some fun & companionship (not necessarily in that order). I love funny women who can hold me spellbound with a story. I also love creativity & passion. The right woman not only fascinates me but also brings out the best in me. I hope that you are comfortable in your own skin. I'm comfortable in mine. Occasionally, there's some extra skin, like now but it'll be gone in a lickety split.
What I think is an ideal Relationship:
We're comfortable with each other. You can be yourself around me without feeling judged & I can be myself because you feel similarly. I only have eyes for you, you only have eyes for me & we communicate this verbally, physically & often. Fights are rare & when we do get into it, we don't stop talking until we've reached some sort of peace. Damn, Very nice. Maybe I read that somewhere. Could I have thought that up by myself? I think I I knack for this writing sh ...er, stuff.
What I've Learned from past Relationships:
Flossing is important. And, after flossing the AirPick...a WaterPick is acceptable. Laughing is essential. Perfection is impossible. Better to be single than to be in a bad relationship. Laughter can save a relationship; lack of laughter can kill it. I was really happy when I came up with this. I'm getting better with this. My Momma didn't raise no fool.
Music? I like almost everything. You name it. 60's & 70's Rock. That's not a blanket statement. 60's & 70's Pop. 60's & 70's R&B & Soul Again, not a blanket statement. Jazz, Country Music. But after the 70's, there's still some damn good music, some Pop, some Rock, some Rap, some Hip Hop, some R&B & Soul, most Opera. Music to Ballroom Dance by. Though I cannot dance...yet. Shoot, include 30's, 40's & 50's music. And, there's nothing wrong with 10's & 20's music. I guess there's not much I don't like. That's kinda like me. I tend to look for the best in everyone & everything. Oh, I absolutely hate bubblegum music. (Yes, he loves bubblegum, hates bubblegum music)? Hate Disco? Love the Bee Gees. Oh, they started disco? Kinda like me. I tend to look for the best in everyone & everything.
Maybe it's just me but, please, if you want to contact me, please, look like your picture. It really is distressing to walk in & see someone who looks older or is a different size than what their picture portrayed. It's OK to be who you are. Putting a younger & thinner picture on your profile, while, it is fantastic to know that you were a looker in your 30's or 40's. Imagine just for an instance, when I (or anyone, possibly your soulmate) walked in & saw an older, possibly heavier version of who they went gaga over when gazing upon your loveliness online. If they stay, they most likely won't stay long. I am positive that you've had the same experience with that stud muffin who was 40 pounds heavier & was wearing a dapper Polyester suit or maybe a Track Suit. Yes, I have exaggerated quite a bit & I apologize if I offended anyone or if anyone has even gotten this far. All I ask is for you (and I promise that I also) to look like your picture! Or, in my case, my picture. Depending upon circumstances, I may appear heavier or thinner than the pictures. Or, I look just like them. See, I realize that we change from time to time. I won't be 20 pounds heavier, I promise! Not even 10! For example, my pictures with that green shirt. They were not taken on the same day. And, that shirt is not the only shirt I have. It does appear to be. A coincidence. Honest. When I was looking at my choice of pictures, I tend to have trouble, well... posing. And, those were the best of the bunch.
I hope I don't come off as overly pompous but, trust me, when I first tried online dating (this is my second go round) I observed this. A lot. And, I was here or somewhere else for only 2 months. Sure, we all want to be with someone who is attractive and we all have our own idea of what that is. But, we all know that looks go only so far. Remember your ex? We both know that he was drop dead gorgeous. And, what happened?
Oh, I have discovered to my amazement, that some women contact men (like me) based on their looks and not what they write. To those women, I can't do much as they will contact me no matter what I say. Like I said...Amazing! So, If you saw my picture & you are reading this, IF, you find yourself enjoying the current (last 20+ years) wave of 'conservative' talk show hosts like Limbaugh, Ingraham, Beck & the like, please pass me by.
