im just a guy lookin for that one special lady to make me want to share my life with. i've been single longer than some of you have been married, so i have become reasonably accepting of and reluctantly content in my singleness.
i would consider myself politically conservative and socially moderate if that is important for you to know. im retired navy so the health and well being of my country is important to me as well as my family.
i dont message first in general, but when i reply to a message, it's with a courteous and neutral answer like ' good evening, how are you?'. maybe i should reply with something of the 'you have nice boobies' type of message since being courteous and respectful is working sooo well.
and with that being said.....the following is just the air in a rice krispie since 99 and 44/100ths% of you wont get this far.
unless you REALLY knock my socks off with something i see in your profile, i wont be the first to message. i am assuming you ladies get tons of messages, some nice and some not so nice. i wont be that guy that messages everyone that breathes just to play the odds that someone will reply. does it limit my interested possibilities?, definitely.....but i am NOT 'that guy'.
my life is simple...eat, sleep and work.....lots of work and a 3rd shifter too. i prefer that shift rather than dealing with the workplace drama.
got a question?, ask. i'm a texter. my schedule is crazy when i'm not sleeping and i dont always have the time to dedicate to a verbal exchange. once i find my 'comfort zone' with a new person, then i will open up and talk.
my interests are diverse and not all are listed.
instant interest killers:
the selfie obsessed
i know i am not:
a skirt chaser
a trustee of modern distillation, chemistry or horticulture. its a safe bet you could drink me under the table. im not in recovery, i just choose to not take things out on my liver.
a people person....i just dont play well with others to be honest.
i know that i:
am heavily sarcastic
am heavily guarded emotionally and will be perceived as stand-offish.
am a natural skeptic
am loyal to the one i love
am opinionated and unfiltered
am the least of my personal priorities compared to my loyalties.
am hypersensitive to the negative. i will hear you screaming NO when all you've done is think it.
will respect your wishes without hesitation.
am a bit of a word nerd.
am a bit quirky
am cynical and heavily sarcastic
am a non-conformist
am a bit practical....think macguyver-ish
am a workaholic.....singleness leaves a void that working fills.....mostly
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. i must warn you, for me, dressing up is dockers and a polo shirt/henley.
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.
