I am a VERY family minded young man who would like nothing more than to find someone I'm compatible with to journey together with me on this adventure we call life. I'm looking for someone who realizes that I'm not perfect, doesn't expect me to be, but is willing to love me anyways :).
I come from a family of almost 30 children and was raised "old school". I was taught to respect my elders, say please and thank you, and to never be afraid to admit when I'm wrong. I may be shy around girls but I am not that way in almost every other aspect of my life, in fact, I am actually a silly, fun loving, extravert with a unique charisma. I LOVE exploring and go on hikes as often as possible and have always dreamed of being with someone who would enjoy going exploring with me. Of course I am also a total nerd (duh lol) and the idea of a girl who will get into the occasional evening of smoking weed and playing video games with me is a huge turn on. Hey, I may be all about responsibility, hard work, and planning for the future, but I like to have fun too ;)! However I have to admit that I don't care much for drinking and have outgrown the whole "party scene" years ago. I do enjoy a good bonfire though :).
I am not looking for a casual fling or booty call, but rather a true best friend. Someone who will play in the rain with me, giggle over things that make no sense, be a cuddle bug (just like me), or simply sit and talk. I am not into aggressiveness and negativity in a relationship and believe with all of my heart that good communication is crucial. A relationship is nothing unless both people know they can rely on each other to be open and honest about what ever is on their mind, knowing that the other will truly listen. I have a saying: "Love is like a garden. Any fool can plant a seed but only through constant attention and nourishment can it become something remarkably beautiful."
I have an 11 year old son whom I love more dearly than my very existence, despite the fact that we share no blood ties. He lives with his mother right now and he visits less often then I would like, but my home will always be open to him. If having him in my life means a lifetime of loneliness for me than that is a sacrifice I am proud to make. Many fathers have no problem abandoning their children... I am not one of them.
I am not a rich man by any means but I do manage to pay all my bills, as well as the rent for the tiny 2 bedroom apartment I live alone in. I dream one day of owning and operating a family business but that is a conversation for another time...
My dreams are simple, home brew Americana. Stability, happiness, peace, love, security. All I want in life is to be able to sit on our porch swing with my loving wife, both of us old and grey. That's it. Nothing more. Just sitting there talking about how great it was to watch our kids grow up and have families of their own. All of the stuff in between now and then we can fill in as we go. :)
I won't chat with multiple girls at the same time since I find it disrespectful so if your on here to get attention from a bunch of guys please find another man to talk to because I am on here to find someone real, not stroke your ego... Thanks. :)
Ps. If you got the Princess Bride reference in my headline then you may be on the right track (love that movie lol)
Pss. I can finally put some real attention into this so feel free to say hi! :)
As long as we can get to know each other a little better than I'm up for anything. I'm sure I can come up with somthing fun and creative. No sex, just a nice comfortable setting were we can enjoy each other's company. After all isn't that what a first date is supposed to be all about? Like I said before, I'm old school lol.
