first up....i have very few extraverted qualities to me with new people. it takes a tremendous amount of courage for me to make an attempt at breaking the ice. i am not a salesman. i cant give a good pitch on why you should pick me over others. i am just me. like you, i am a product of my experiences.
i still believe in finding the person who wants to be my 'happily ever after'.
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.
i work a lot....6 days a week and overtime on top of that has become my norm. 'me' time is a premium and usually sleeping and a shower is it. let's hope things work out for the me time over the winter.
i'm as sarcastic as the year is long. 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.
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.
