I am a down to earth honest man with a good heart in search of a loving partner to play with and share in the excitement of the daily routine of life. I have been a single dad for quite sometime enjoying a very active friendship with my two boys in their mid to late twenties. I live by and believe that the harder you work allows the time and provides the means to play even harder.
I have traveled all over the country for work and pleasure. So I am at ease in any environment, formal or casual. Although, formal in Florida seems to be (flip-flops and a tan)lol. I do take pride in dressing up though, when the occasion calls for it. Especially when I am in the company of a pretty lady. Besides making the effort to look good does not go unnoticed and usually gets a smile. I think that a lady having a reason to smile is one of the most attractive features that she has to share. Also, if you are able to start things out with a smile, your off to a good start. Ok, so recently I have made a decision to limit my out of town travel and take the time to meet and romance that smiling lady that I speak of while focusing on a more stable plan for a new adventure. After 30+ years of living in St Petersburg, I decided to move to DeBary with my dog (Baher). Being new to the area and with a house under construction, I have only had time to check out DeBary's only two dog friendly restaurants. Both of them are close and seem like a great atmosphere. The move is going well so far!
Now it is time to meet some new friends. Hopefully, that will include finding that one special lady that will laugh with me, make me happy and complete me once again. She would fully stimulate me with her intellect and conversation, capture my heart with her touch and comfort me with her hugs and kisses. I need a cuddler that would want to curl up with me while sharing popcorn during a good movie. Possibly a sports buddy that enjoys baseball, football (especially college) and maybe a little hockey. Certainly not as a weekend ritual but, maybe during the big games and playoffs. There are way too many other activities to enjoy that never seems to happen when you are tied up on your couch in front of that Big TV. Also, it would be nice to find a competitive lady that can throw a few darts or shoot a decent game of pool. My ideal partner would become my new best friend and loving companion that is always fun to be around and of course opinionated and supportive with daily decisions.
Yes, my expectations are many but my desire is to find only ONE very special lady that is looking to feel completely loved and also content to start a new chapter in life with me as her new partner that is not going to take her for granted? As a matter of fact, I promise to make a daily effort to "NEVER FORGET THE GIRL"!
One sure thing that I can control while my heart still beats and my mind is still sound is my ability to feel loved and to show and give the love and respect to my new girl and possibly future life partner. That is a self gratification of effort that is easy for me to make and maintain. What is not so easy is the fact that as we mature in our years, it becomes apparent and understandable that we now have to work even harder to maintain our looks. After all, our inconsistent shapes and whatever lines that we have developed and try to hide are well deserved. Wouldn't you agree? Although, I try to stay in shape, I truly believe that total fitness is only achieved through a healthy loving partnership. I feel that an exclusive desire to please (only) one woman breeds a passion to want to show your love and maintain a healthy body and sharp mind all throughout the relationship. The ultimate plan for happiness and to accomplish our tasks has never been for us to do it alone. In fact it is completely the opposite. Life's prosperity is experienced only with a faithful partner.
To accomplish this partnership I have learned to realize that the small things you do are the most important. It is taking the time to respect and appreciate the things she does. To really listen to the things she says. Offering to take a couple minutes to help her can lead to hours of enjoyment and pleasure not only for you but, for her as well. It is the playful compliments accompanied by the little love notes and unexpected gifts for absolutely no reason that keeps the romance alive. Once again simply speaking, "NEVER FORGET THE GIRL"!
Also, imagine my surprise when I found out that I could not make things better or fix everything. So now I just take the time to offer a listening ear when those frustrations of the day need to be vented. Sometimes opening your heart is as simple as opening your ears. Also respect each other's wishes for individual alone time and to exercise their free spirit. I have found that to be just as important as opening new doors by participating in each other's interests. Just making the effort to appreciate, respect and cherish each moment together as well as apart, I believe sums it all up.
I am not sure if it is possible to find that one special lady that I speak of through this method of introduction. But, I am keeping my expectations high. Although, I really find it peculiar having to miss out on the initial display of mixed emotions during a first glance. I mean It is then that you can tell how someone feels about you just by their look. For instance, if you don't like bald headed men you wouldn't really have an attraction to them right? On here you have to write in your profile what your likes and dislikes are. Making us a target for ridicule before even getting to know us. I mean how else do we determine whether the door is open or closed for just some friendly conversation? I guess that I'm just still old fashion in spirit having to adjust to the mechanics of a more efficient way of finding the girl of my dreams. Of course, we all have our reasons for being here. Casual conversations with strangers does sometimes lead into meeting a few new friends. Which is fine if that is what you are looking for. However, my main objective is written above! Who knows? We might possibly find meaningful justification in why we are here in the first place.
If you would care to take a chance and share some of your thoughts with me? I'd like to talk with you. Barry
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
My idea of a first date should not be about what or where. It should be about the excitement of who you are with and the first time nervousness turning into relaxation and enthusiastic conversation. The mutual sharing of two people feeling the desire for future encounters. Which is quickly recognized and only achieved by being yourself. A CONTINUOUS SMILE FROM THE BEGINNING TO NOT WANTING AN END.
