Hi and thanks for stopping by my corner of POF.
I am romantic, understanding, adventurous, upfront, honest, faithful, and a great listener. Those are all qualities I pride myself on and would hope for the same qualities in a partner. I do not play games nor have I ever understood the reason to do so. Life is too short to waste it on petty things. I have always lived by the, "Do unto others as you would have done unto you", school of thought. I treat everybody with the same respect and patience that I would expect to be treated with.
It would be nice to have someone who would enjoy going to Carmel, conventions, parks, spontaneous road trips along the coast, cuddling up to watch our favorite TV shows, or a night at home with friends and a good movie. I can adjust to just about any situation if the need arises. I have always felt that being happy was more about who I was with and not so much what I am doing.
I am an artist and I do attend several local conventions throughout the year. It would be nice to have someone to keep me company and support that as well. Someone that is at least willing to give it a try would be nice. It can be a lot of fun if you give in to the geeky side that I think we all possess deep down. I know it's give and take too, and I won't complain when you take me along shopping at the mall or while I sit in the waiting room when you get your nails done. :) I understand that being together is the most important part of a relationship no matter what we are doing (besides communication, of course). In all honesty I like going shopping, walking through malls, and finding those perfect gifts for friends and family. You want to go looking for that new summer dress or pair of shoes, I’m your guy. Most of my friends are the, “grab it and go”, type and I don’t see any fun in that. I enjoy shopping around for that special gift, finding that bargain, and sometimes just getting ideas for future presents.
I'd like to think I'm a simple-no baggage guy. Or at least as close to that as you can get. We all have some baggage to carry through life so, I suppose, the key is how much we carry with us and what we leave behind. I take care of my mom, make time for my awesome friends, and have a job I enjoy. The one thing that is missing is a companion to share those special times with.
As far as music goes I am all over the place. Pretty much anything except Heavy Metal. I never got into that, too hard for me to understand what they were saying I suppose. Soundtracks, country, pop, jazz, blues, rock, vocals, it's all in the old iTunes library. I'm an artist so I usually have music on as background noise while I work.
I'm now looking for a relationship, but I'm not looking to jump into anything without getting to know someone first. I've never been married, so I'm pretty sure it won't kill me to take things slow and make sure we are compatible.
If there is anything else you would like to know please feel free to ask or save for the first date ;)
Good luck fishing
Anything is fine with me and I would defer to the ladies choice. I would assume something safe and public would be preferred, such as a coffee shop with a park near by to walk through. This gives both parties a chance to get to know each other a bit and to see if there is any kind of interest or spark.
