Just a laid back guy looking for the right woman. Too many wrong ones so far. If you want to talk, that's great. However, don't just stop talking, at least give a reason. Don't think that I am a rude person, so please don't be rude to me. I am too old for games. Just looking for a good woman to share life with. A warning about me, when I fall, I fall hard. Gamers please move on. I know what I want, I want the last relationship of my life.... can you handle that? Two songs fit me, Hysteria by Def Leppard and Someone For Me by Nickelback. Please try to listen to them before you talk to me. Look, I'm just a guy who knows what he wants.
And for the Gamers: the sports complex for KC is off of 435. Go there and wait.
There is so much more than I could say, but hey, isn't that part of getting to know me? Maybe not, so allow me to explain by category:
(Legal Disclaimer: The below only apply if we are an actual couple, in the event that we are not a couple, then, well, crap, I don't know then)
RULE NUMBER ONE: If you are going to take a self portrait in the mirror (yes I know, sometimes it is the only way), at least have the decency to take your wedding band off. Not interested in being the "other" guy or the reason (or so he thinks) of breaking up your marriage.
YOU: Not looking for some skinny supermodel (dear God, someone give them a sandwich or something to eat!!).
SENSE OF HUMOR: I have one. It's sarcastic, at times dry, and can be insulting. Try always being the new kid in school growing up and you would understand. Some people would say I am the second coming of Don Rickles. I should be so blessed. However, I know when it's appropriate and when it's not, it's called a brain and manners.
ME IN GENERAL: I can be aggressive, I can be passive. I can be dominate, I can be submissive (and no people, I am NOT talking about that). What I am trying to say is that I can be what the situation needs and demands. I am not 16 anymore, I know how to think.
EMPLOYMENT: I am. I have two Masters Degrees and I work for 7.50 per hour. I have two weeks of 35 hours and one week of 28 hours. You do the math. Why? Because I am a corporate burn out and now I make a difference. I save lives and enrich them. I should have done this a long time ago, I am happy with what I do; I have gained personal satisfaction. How many people can say that?
GENDER ROLES: I do believe that I am supposed to cut the yard and take the trash out. I do laundry (although I HATE to iron), I actually like to do dishes by hand, and will vacuum during half time (okay, during commercials, got to hear the updated scores). If I am off on a day you work, I will cook dinner, I do expect the same. Fair is fair, right? But if you cook, it's only fair I do dishes.
HOW TO SPEAK AUSTRALIAN: I dare you to say these words out loud and not sound Australian: GOOD EYE MIGHT
SEX: Ah, the taboo of online whatever we are doing. First date? Not a chance, you're not that lucky (see sense of humor for reference). As a couple, it will eventually happen; when it's time and we are ready, no sooner, no later. As stated before, I am not 16, I will 47 in August, I know how to control myself. It needs to be right the first time, not perfect, just right.
SLEEPING TOGETHER: I always take the side by the door (sorry, you probably don't need it, but I like to protect). In the event the door is at the foot of the bed, I like the right side of the bed when facing it. I snore. God do I snore. Wake me when I do, I will apologize left and right, and guess what? I will go back to sleep and snore. Get ear plugs, or a soft enough pillow to smother me.
KIDS: Have them, love them, and have grandkids. Enough said. (Although I am so unsure about this generation, seems as if they have no respect for anyone).
DRUGS: Caffeine, nicotine. I gave up heroin last week and meth today (again, reference sense of humor). And my medication helps so much (at least that's what the voices tell me).
ARGUEMENTS: Gonna happen; Get over it. We're adults, we have different opinions on things. However, there will nothing more important than my love for you. Doesn't mean I will back down, means I won't let it interfere.
IN GENERAL: Just a normal guy, has his share of family and life drama just like everyone else, just wanting to fall in love and be loved.
MILITARY: I am a Gulf War vet (the first one, 1991). I was in the Navy, assigned to the USMC as a corpsman. I don't like to talk about it. I saw sh*t that you could not imagine. CNN coverage? Give me a break, try being shot at. Hate the war? Fine. Please, support the troops.
EX'S: Probably didn't spell that right. To me, ex's are an ex for a reason, however, they touched our lives. Listen to Ronnie Milsap's "I Wouldn't Have Missed It For The World". We are the sum of our experiences, what you do with it is up to you. It can kill you or make you stronger; but please, don't be cynical. I didn't hurt you, and I am not here to do that.
RELIGION: I believe in God. I pray every night. I know for a fact that God answers every prayer, problem is sometimes the answer is NO (hence, I missed the Powerball by only 6 numbers yet again). My belief is just that, mine. Yours is yours. One is not better than the other. Respect.
GOAL IN LIFE: I want to run for political office. I do NOT want to win, but I figure the media will find out what I did in the late 70s/early 80s, publish it, and then I can finally remember!!
YOUR PROFILE: On behalf of the entire male population, allow me to apologize for all those jerks who are trying to talk sexually to you. It's not me. So stop trying (if I need to remind you of my sense of humor, we're lost at this point).
Anything else? Oh yeah, one other thing: I have a potty mouth at times. However, I know when not to use it: around kids, around strangers, around your parents, etc...but if I break a nail, all bets are off (again, refer to sense of humor). I do have a touch of class thanks to my mother. I do speak French, that is my background (not sure what that has to do with a potty mouth, but eF it, I told you).
Legal re-disclaimer: I reserve the right to add/delete/insert (isn't insert the same as add?) additional information as necessary as I figure out more about myself. With the meth gone, it's all coming back to me (once again, refer to sense of humor).
