If you CANNOT hike or ride to the top of Badger Mountain, without the use of an oxygen bottle, or without stopping......MOVE ON!
Very Passionate man here, good or bad. Take it or Leave it. I try to give passion in everything I do. I am FAITHFUL, LOYAL, STEADFAST. Those are traits I own up to, and look for in the people I associate with. If you are not there for your friends, how can you expect them to be there for you?
Definitely not into care-taking or personal coaching on how to live life, at least not anymore. iT can be quicksand where you begin to lose yourself, and the hardest journey, is getting back to where you were supposed to be. Without going into detail, I spent a few precious years trying to convince someone that I was committed to, who wound up being so afraid of life, and wanted to be anchored to the floor, waiting for the "perfect moment". . I am done with that. Not bitter, just a fact. If you are waiting for that "perfect moment", you will eventually lose the people who could have helped you make it happen to begin with. Does this make sense to you? If you have to be taught how to live, or never had a coach or a mentor, and you have to be drawn out to have a little adventure?!? I am NOT for you.
If you are not fit to walk up Badger Mountain on a beautiful night for a (possible) romantic make out session, and not needing an oxygen tank? I am NOT for you.
Not that that kind of thing would be expected to happen on the first date! (or would it?) Simply put, you had better be ready for your life NOT TO BE BORING if you start to hang around me for very long, if nothing else, than to see what would happen next! But that would only last so long unless there is a real connection between us.
I am a THINKER, a PLANNER, a MOVER and a DO'er. I may have bad days, like anyone else, but I tend to also really have my moments and shine, and feel unbeatable as a result.
I am looking for that special someone to keep up with me, or even challenges me to keep up with them when the activity presents itself, but willing to let their guard down making it possible for someone like me to come into their life.
I want someone in my life who does not take for granted the special moments, whether it be having that incredible connection on a road trip, experiencing a revelation, or making love. (Perhaps all three?)
Speaking of making love, let's get this sex issue out of the way: First off, I AM GUY! I have my membership card and everything that came with the kit. We can get horny by you pretty ladies just walking into the room! Personally I have one of the most erogenous zones I know of between my ears, not just below the belt. I am personally not very anxious to just hop in the sack with just anyone, do one night stands, or to be used.
I am a very sensual being,like any other intelligent, healthy creature, but only with another being that I feel really good with. If you don't have a healthy attitude about sex, feeling pleasure, or reciprocating, please, move on from this profile. Is that fair and sound reasonable to you?
While I AM looking for my ONE eventually, and yes, I would have to be convinced, it is very enjoyable to take the risk of meeting new people and see what happens without losing your head...isn't it?
Mentoring kids, and getting along with your children, if you have any, I am totally alright with. No, I do not have any children of my own, that frame set still has not changed to any serious degree. I have tried to give it's due consideration, and someday, I might want to have a carpet critter running around my house with a finger up his nose, saying "Daddy!", but definitely not right now.
Very excited to meet new people, try out your hobbies, and have you experience some of mine. Yes, there does need to be some things in common, but NOT EVERYTHING! I dare you to ask me to try something that you love doing, I just ask that you have the same patience with me learning your hobby that I would give to you.....ok, honestly, still working on that one,hahaha! I really like seeing someone try, fail, fail, fail, then succeed. Enthusiasm makes up for so much, yet many do not understand this principle.
Not that you asked, but My FICTIONAL heros include Colonel Jack O'neill of Stargate SG1, Captain Kirk, Hannibal Smith of the A-Team, They all have humor, guts and are never afraid to stand out in a crowd, or laugh at themselves. I definitely relate to them in those ways. If you don't have a little of the dork mentality, like I do, how on earth do you get along in this so-called Post Mayan calendar world?!?
Currently working on getting caught up on internet technologies, trying to get certifications done,and sometimes its daunting. I would rather play a poker tournament or take the pups outside to the dunes for an hour, and sometimes I do exactly that. Discipline and balance, two very important factors in life I am in a constant struggle with, but then again, who isn't? Yes, I realize that Rome was not built in a day. Do you know how long it took, though? LOL.
If you like to be wined and dined, that is okay, but definitely not on a first date, and in an Obama Economy. (Yes, that is what I typed, take a hint.)
I am going to get to know you on a budget with simple times first. I have had more fun on dates, walking along the river than I ever had spending large amounts of cash on expensive dinners right out of the gate. If we are excited about each other after a few of those first simple times, we can splurge on each other occasionally afterward. If I have set time and energy aside for some time together, you will have my utmost attention at that time, and my phone will be off. Except for the "Emergency situation, I have to leave" call that you or I may get within the first ten minutes of our date, I would expect the same courtesy.
If you and I can meet during one of our own interests, and find that there are other interests that we can learn from each other? Then you and I are going to have a good time, and most likely more than once!
So many of us have pets or dogs, I say we hop in the car/truck, take our dogs to the dunes and let them wear themselves out while we sit on the sand, have a good lunch and connect.
I welcome suggestions as well.
