Hmm I can say everything I aspire to be but honestly I am not as practiced as I would like to be - still working on all of those measures. Easy going and friendly. Raising kids helped me grow up - it is our nature to be attracted to pretty packages and shiny wrappings but what's inside is all that matters.
I chase my dog around the yard - he likes to see ME chase the ball. I would take my dog for long walks but he's not much of a conversationalist - he prefers action movies on tv and has his own DVD collection. I like the outdoors, mostly near the water, flea markets for treasure hunting, long lunches, live music, anything fuzzy (with four legs) and coffee in the morning on the patio. Open air markets are my kinda grocery store. Tall men with big smiles! If you are sporting a ball cap and jeans you will definitely get my attention. I am not shy but can be quiet while I listen to your stories. Drinks on the patio are fine but not into bar-hopping. Did I say spunky? Love great fitting jeans (cause I like to watch the boys fall down) and going barefoot in the grass.
I don't watch much tv so if you know all the programs going on you might lose me in the conversation. I have been known to hang out for movie night and throw in a few DVD's - dang it - its always the dog's choice. Gotta keep the Big Dog happy. I like staying busy - simple stuff.
I love the sound of a man's soft growl. No bravado please - big turn off. Sincerity will get my attention every time.
If you say Hello - I will say Hello back.
With Love, comes Sacrifices.
With Sacrifices, comes Strength.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Nothing fancy - I prefer the more simple things in life.
Hanging out by a firepit?
A short trail ride would be grand!
Cloud gazing for familiar shapes? Well, ok, that would be over in 5 minutes during a strong breeze.
Shopping for new hats?
Frizzbee with the dog, then?
