Hi, my name is Mark and I am a good-hearted man who is looking for a female friend to have fun, and to share life experiences with. Someone who’s friendship will develop into something more if things work out as our time together progresses and someone who won't judge me by my wonderful looks alone, lol. I enjoy warm summer nights and hanging out with my friends. I'm a quarter Indian and love the outdoors, especially the mountains. I'm also a quarter Italian so I love good food and I am very family oriented. I like to party, but I'm also a responsible person. I am very sensitive and caring bla, bla, bla, ok *UPDATE* After reading other profiles and having more years on this dating site then I care to count, I realize that I must talk a little more in depth about me then I care to type. My typing sucks, it’s just a little worse than my spelling. Ha, ha. I know that talking about my personality and what I really want out of life and what I expect from others may help a dating profile. Maybe if I type from the hart. Well… [sigh] ok, here goes, don’t know if I’ll cover all that but after all, being on this site for so long, it defiantly can’t hurt! I guess I would consider myself a rather complicated person. I find it difficult to sum myself up in a nutshell. It would be a rather large nut. lol. But I will do my best. I was a care giver for my dad who lost a long and gallant battle to cancer back in February of 12. He couldn’t get around, but just barely so I took care of him 24/7. I lost my mom back in 2010 and there are days that I find it harder to cope then others. I guess I can be a pessimist at times but I do struggle to be an optimist. My sister would tell you that my mind can go in a million different directions at once; maybe a little ADHD with some OCD. Wow what a combo. I have many favorite topics that I like to talk about. I am fascinated about quantum physics but couldn’t begin to do the math to save my life, deep subjects such as that to name one. I have an AAS Degree in MIM (Micro Computer Information Management) so I can hold my own when it comes to PCs. Currently I'm home studying to get my A+, but have been doing that off and on for like ever. I have a bit of engineering background as well, so I guess I'm well rounded with maybe a few flat spots. lol. I like Classic Rock but have an open mind to all types of music. I never settled down because I have never found “the rite one”, if she exists, and am always on that constant quest to do so, but aren’t we all? Who are single; that is. So many times have I seen failed relationships. I believe that part of life, if not most of it, is giving life and caring for life. It might very well just be the secrete of life. I know that it is certainly one of the joys in life along with that special someone. And without those elements, life can sometimes seem pointless. Maybe deep down that’s what drives us all to find that special someone. I know it is for me. So this is my Hail merry pass at it you could say. I don’t particularly like going to bars or clubs and such to “scan the scene” sort of speak because I kinda feel isolated when I do, especially when you walk in a place like that alone. I had my own bar at home when I was a care giver for my dad. I still have one; it’s now just at the end of my hall-way, in the “club house”. Why pay a bartender when you can tend your own rite? And no I don’t drink a lot. In fact, nowadays, I hardly drink at all. Less than what my profile says above. I rarely even drank with the old man when he was in his “Captain and Cola” mood. I lost two uncles from alcohol and I can take it or leave it, although I’m always on a side quest for that perfect tasting drink. Haven’t found it yet; though. I've come close. lol I know that I am far from prince charming, at least as far as charisma goes, but on the same token my standard is set high when it comes to a woman. For me, this has proven to be a very bad combination indeed, but I believe that if one is going to be with a partner, for the long haul, one must truly love that person heart and soul and that communication is the key foundation to any relationship. If I can’t look into the eyes of my partner and see the beauty of true love, then it just won’t work! They say looks aren’t everything, but let’s face it, l bet that looks are more important to most people than they would care to admit and there you have my dilemma! I fear that my taste for beauty is writing checks that my charisma can’t cash. Oh well, such as life I guess. I’m sure I’m not alone in that category as lonely as that category can be. I just hope maybe my charm can compensate for it and that’s the ONLY thing that would need to be compensated for. lol. I can be a funny person and will make you laugh if given the chance. If you have read this far, then maybe I have half that chance in meeting a woman who is as beautiful on the inside as she is on the out. And on that note, I feel that I must also add that I DO NOT date anyone heavier then myself. Sorry if that offends, but it's my life. I am also 420 friendly. If you have to ask me what that means, then you probably won't like my answer, so its best not to ask. If you’re tired of the guys that pretend to be someone their not and are looking for a good honest man; you need to look no further! Life is too short and wonderful to go through it alone. Thanks for reading and hope to hear from you soon.
