**Updated 02/19/14 - Sorry it's so "wordy", I added more than I deleted...
I think I'm pretty easy going...
I have my own place, car, teeth, and job.
I have a "bad boy" side, behind a "choir boy" smile.
I am "open minded" about most things.
I can be a clown at times, but know when to act like a "grown up".
I have 2 tattoos.
I don't get jealous.
I've been blamed (many times) for being a VERY VERY bad influence.
I like action movies in the theater, but will usually wait for non-action movies to hit Redbox.
I enjoy having drinks with friends, but I don't sit home alone with a bottle in my hand.
I think it's healthy to have other friends and interests.
I am a gentleman in public, but I'm definitely not boring, or a prude.
I love all kinds of music, but can't memorize a single song.
I have a dirty sense of humor, but not "gross" or embarrassing.
I try to be attentive and supportive, but not clingy.
I feel that you have a right to think and feel, any way you choose.
(But, if you are judgmental, or intolerant of others... We just wouldn't get along.)
I talk a LOT, but enjoy listening to others also. (I'm rambling here, but I actually do prefer a "back and forth" conversation).
I am lucky enough to work from home (so my schedule is pretty flexible).
But... I am also a proud father of a 12 yr. old daughter. - I have joint custody, and shared residency (which means she lives with me during every other week). So, I won't always be available to just "race out the door" (some things are better planned ahead, anyway).
Things that I find attractive in a woman...
A "bad girl" side, behind an "innocent" smile.
A witty sense of Humor
Flirty by nature
Loves to Laugh
Somebody who enjoys getting out of the house (but also knows how to enjoy a lazy day just watching movies on the couch)...
***I will admit that I have a weakness for an aggressive woman. (If you are comfortable being forward, blunt, and speaking your mind... It's a definite PLUS!)
Here's a few examples of what's "NOT HOT"...
The "Serial dater" (who will just ask a different guy out each night of the week, just to get a guy to buy them dinner or drinks).
The "Wedding planner" (who practically wears a wedding dress to the first time they meet a guy).
The "Photoshop Artist" (who edited their photos A LOT, used something from years ago, or just used a pic of their friend instead).
The "Chemically Dependent" (who needs to focus on other "life choices", before meeting somebody, while being totally nuts on meth).
The "Hater" (who spends your whole conversation, bashing everything in life; their ex's, their bosses, their friends, etc.)
I like the idea of a mellow first meeting, somewhere that we can actually "hear" each other.
I think it's easier to just meet for a coffee, a drink, or an iced tea, and relax somewhere comfortable.
That would give us both a chance to decide if you're "crazy", or if I'm a "duchebag"...
Maybe you have a laugh like Fran Drescher (The Nanny)?
Maybe I'm a Self absorbed, narcissistic, selfish, blabber mouthed jerk, who doesn't stop talking about video games?
It's NOT supposed to feel like an interview for us. We are supposed to be having FUN!
So if we get along, and laugh a little bit, while we get to know each other, GREAT!
The nice part of having a GOOD first meeting, is that we can always talk more about what to do "next time"...
Maybe even challenge each other to come up with something little more adventurous, or original?
Thanks for reading my "novel", drop a note if I sound interesting enough to get to know more.
