It's hard to describe oneself without sounding arrogant, but I believe myself to be an active, intelligent, sensitive, romantic, giver. Active as in enjoying an outing whether it be a concert-in-the-park, a dinner/movie night, dancing or just watching a live band work, Harley rides whether a short, local ride or a few days on the coast, or just a quiet place for some intriguing conversation. Intelligent as in being able to have a sustained conversation on a variety of subjects (without always having to be right). Sensitive as in aware of my company and their perspective on things, feeling fortunate/blessed daily while seeing so many with insurmountable problems in their lives, and realizing that each day is given to be enjoyed while respecting those around you ( the Golden Rule is more than a neat plaque ). Romantic as in being open-hearted in a relationship, enjoying the excitement of little things like flowers/gifts, candlelight dinners, holding hands/hugs, snuggling on the couch with a good movie, the feeling of connection when I am with someone I like and likes me. A giver because there is truth in the "Better to give than receive" thinking.
That being said...as Brad Paisley so eliquently put it, "I'm still a guy"...so there may be moments of sipping beer, watching Nascar, and scratching myself mixed in...
I'm not looking for a shadow,(already have one on sunny days), but someone that "gets me" and I find myself missing immediately after kissing goodnight. Are you the one?
I'm a romantic at heart, so my first date would be a little dress-up, nice atmosphere dinner or drink, lots of conversation, no rush...or maybe a Harley ride on a warm afternoon to a "nice" burger/beer hideaway. Your choice...
I think it takes a while to really get to know someone new, many conversations, various experiences. Ladies usually have a few stories of how men can be so deceiving in what they say with words, ( but some of you can hold your own with them ), so I think it best to see, over time, through how one lives it instead of says it.
