i have been on here longer than most sane people would have stayed. it has hardened my cynicism. short of hitting your car, boiling a pet rabbit or stalking you....i am like a ghost.
the epitome of a hopeless romantic to make it sound nice.
describe myself?, a workaholic dork loner with an attitude.
i have very few extroverted qualities to me with new people. that makes me appear uniterested and distant. it takes a tremendous amount of courage for me to make an attempt at breaking the ice. i am not a salesman. my ice breaker will probably make your list for top 5 lamest. i am just me. like you, i am a product of my experiences.
i have no game. if i feel like i am annoying you, i will go away. my small talk seems awkward to me but would you rather me ask for your measurements, favorite position or other inappropriate questions from a relative stranger?
i still believe in finding the person who wants to be my 'happily ever after', although the optimism is waning.
that being said.....

yes, i do read profiles as well as look at the pics with them. the 'you' part has to be just as interesting to me as your pics are appealing.
as a note, i'm a 'hard sell'. i dont settle. i've been single longer than some of you have been married. i'm slow to warm, slower to trust and VERY careful when it comes to my life decisions and their long term implications.
my listed occupation.....there to test your sense of humor but i doubt you got this far or even past the user name. if you are going to judge me by my income and occupation i reserve the right to judge you on your grammar skills.
i work a lot....6 days a week and overtime on top of that has become my norm in the summer. fall and winter things slow down and usually have a 40hr week. the fun part, i work 3rds.
i'm as sarcastic as a CLE winter is cold. if you cant stomach sarcasm or that gene skipped you....well, i cant help ya. i'm retired navy so i run unfiltered and think out loud most of the time. i habitually use self-depricating humor in my sarcasm. good or bad, it is what it is.
ladies, a friendly word of advice....if you post of a pic of you and your friends, how do we guys know which one is you?, seriously?
the typical dinner date to get to know each other a little better would be a good start. no sense in doing an activity that one of us just doesnt like and faking it. most of the women that interest me have an appetite to some degree.
No dancing....to say I'm a horrible dancer would be a HUGE compliment. i dance like the guy in the 'lonely boy' video on a good night.
