Hey, my name is Eric, and at 51yo, I'm STILL busting through the gates! Shoulders broad enough to carry on each side both the angel and devel you! ;o)
You will find me to be a fairly intelligent man, despite my quiet nature and somewhat punch-drunk midwestern accent.
I have a grown son that lives in Chicago. I miss him dearly. He's finding his way through life as we do and I am very proud of him.
You should know, I don't cheat. I never have (with a wife or girlfriend) nor will I ever. If you have, I hope you've learned and grew from it. If you have more than once, well I'm just not interested in such self indulging characteristics. I don't tolerate cheaters.
Although I may be hysterically cracking up inside, my demeanor is of a more stoic nature. A gift from generations and descent of my depressed Finnish and Swedish ancestors (if you're from that lineage, you'll know what I mean, just look at any old family photos). Although I find that... gift very lucrative in say, a poker game, I do feel as if it may present me in a somewhat "unapproachable" light. Not true though!
"Do what you love, and LOVE will come..." I love the great outdoors and all that nature has to offer. I get out as much as I can during all seasons. I've been a member of a local and well established search and rescue group for some years now. It's important to me that you, at the very least, have a great appreciation for the beauty we are so fortunate to be surrounded by. This is my church.
What I desire is to share my love, as well as life's experiences (both past and future) with the right woman, the woman that I feel I could not live with out. At this stage of my life I have found the difference.
I've found that it's near impossible to tell from someone's profile page if they are the right woman for me. There is no haste in my search, however I will want to meet with you sooner than later.
If I message you it's because I am interested, if I don't hear back, I will assume you're not. Please show me the same courtesy.
Happy fishing :-)
