Update - 07/15/2012: Well after many years of looking, I finally pulled the trigger and bought a lake place at the Lake of the Ozarks! It has been many years since I've owned a place here at the lake and I look forward to making the condo a home-away-from-home! I'm spending alot of my free time down here at the lake trying to get this place into shape and I look forward to having friends/guests/company come and visit!
Update - 04/29/2012: After a well-timed, self induced break from dating, I'm ready to try it again. I just wasn't able to give a relationship my fullest attention due to family/work issues, but I've got my head screwed on straight and am ready to go... If you've recently viewed me, I thank you for viewing my profile and if you emailed me recently, I'm trying to catch-up, please allow me some time. Thanks all - have a good fishing day! You you have any questions about me, just ask!
Personal Profile: My friends have described me as caring, loyal, having integrity, being attentive, creative, having a goofy sense of humor, friendly, generous, intelligent, thoughtful, being a good listener, somewhat articulate and finally being able to laugh at myself. There's also a few other choice words I won't go into ...lol... I'm pretty laid back, so not much bothers me. I have often been referred to as a simple man who is devoted to his friends and family.
I believe in being a gentleman around the opposite sex and to a point I'm pretty much ol' fashioned. At the same time I respect a woman who has taken control of her life, and knows what she wants. I’m generally a quiet man, usually not at the center of attention, but at the same time still able to communicate my feelings and expect my partner to do the same. Loyalty and integrity are important to me as I feel I possess both of these qualities and they are strongly ingrained into my being.
I still have so much to learn about myself and I'm at a point in my life where I’m ready to have a partner to help me continue growing. I am looking for a woman that can recognize and appreciate my strengths and accept my weaknesses and help me learn and grow from my miscues. I want to find a true partner in life, someone who shares my dreams, sense of humor, and accepts me for who I am.
Activities & Interests: I’m into a lot of things, sports, activities, etc. and in general I am open to new adventures and experiences. Specific current interests include; Golfing, Fishing, Boating, Dining Out, Movies, Family, Travel-Sightseeing, and I tolerate Shopping!
Favorite Music: Classic Rock (70's and 80's), Country, Really all kinds of music, except Techno
Favorite TV Shows: Friday Night Lights, The Bachelor / The Bachelorette, Grey's Anatomy, HGTV ( Any show), Sports Programming particularly Men's College Basketball and Cardinal's Baseball, Two And A Half Men, Friends, Seinfeld, Everybody Loves Raymond (I've been compared to Raymond, don't know if thats good or bad!)
Favorite Movies: Lots, Too many to list!... I've got several hundred in my collection.... I guess that makes me a movie fanatic! I also enjoy going out to movies and enjoy all kinds from the biggest Hollywood hits to the lesser-known indie films.
Who I'm looking for: The woman I'd like to meet should possess some of the traits that I possess, but at the same time challenge me in bringing to the table new perspectives on social. political and relationship issues. I'm not looking to rescue someone either emotionally or financially, the person I'm ultimately looking for has a high emotional IQ and is confident in her abilities and is in a "good place" in her life.
If you want to know anything, please ask, I'm pretty straight forward. The ball is in your court, if your interested just let me know!
