Thanks for stopping by and checking out my profile.
I’ve been divorced for a long time, and I'm at the point in my life where I want to meet that special lady and make a life-long commitment to her. I have two great sons ages 24 and 18. My friends would describe me as honest, hard-working, dependable, and a bit quiet and reserved. I'm a trustworthy person who is independent, has a job, and is financially responsible. I don’t use drugs and I enjoy the simple things that life has to offer. I can be shy when I first meet someone. But, I open up more as you get to know me.
Some of my interests include reading about History, visiting historical places, and working around the house. I also enjoy such things as going to movies, dining out, reading, music, BBQ in the back yard, fishing, the occasional Cardinals game, museums, and cultural events.
I believe that family is very important. I also believe that trust, respect, loyalty and honesty are necessary if a relationship is going to work. I think that if you have trust and respect, then things like communication and loyalty naturally follow; making the relationship better.
I'm looking for someone who is honest, down-to-earth, family-oriented, who takes care of herself emotionally as well as physically. I would like to meet someone who is interested in a long-term relationship, and who has family values. I’m not into the bar or club scene to meet people, and I'm not into drama, BS, or playing head-games.
I’d also like to add:
That I’m the first to admit I'm not very photogenic, but my pictures show my true appearance. However, I've been told I look better in person.
I'm not a sugar daddy and I'm not looking for a sugar momma!
If you have ‘unchecked’ emotional baggage, then we would not be a good match.
If you consider yourself ‘high-maintenance’, then we would not be a good match.
If your idea of having a relationship is just texting back-and-forth, then we would not be a good match. I actually want to spend time together doing things, and I want that interest to be mutual. That's the best way to get to know someone. Not saying we have to be joined at the hip 24/7 because I also enjoy my "me time" and I'm sure you do too.
I’m not looking for a booty call, and I want to start out as friends first.
I’m not perfect and I don’t expect you to be. Just a nice guy looking for a nice girl.
Thanks and good luck to you all.
Instead of calling it a "first date", how about a first meeting? Maybe meet for a quick drink (coffee, tea, soda...or a quick appetizer), and see if there is any chemistry and go from there?
However, whatever we both agree on is fine by me.
