I'm not a paying member, if you selected me during meet me i can only see the micro picture and the alert. viewing the profile lets me view your profile.
Ok, i'm not perfect. Let's be absoltively posilutely clear on that. I make mistakes and i learn from them. I try to be better today than I was yesterday as a person and in my job.
Sarcastic and dead pan.
Very few friends and keep to myself.
Enjoy the usual redneck activities.
Asks silly, meaning rhetorical, questions.
miss Mitch Hedberg, Phil Hicks and Greg Giraldo.
A goofball and find fart jokes funny.
The textbook introvert.
Having very few friends as well as being the textbook introvert, you wont have to worry about me wandering unless you dont want me around. Word of warning; i am hypersensitive to the negative, emphasis on hyper. I will not stay where I am not welcomed. One of my bigger fears is that I am good at being single.
Because I am cautiously guarded/guardedly cautious, it takes me a while to warm up to new people. Until i find the safe zone with you, we will text quite a bit. You may not like it but it is what it is. I've been on POF for a LONG time. many reasons why, but the biggest is that I dont move as fast as some like. That's ok by me. Get in a hurry, settle for less and you will regret it every time. Which is most likely why I have very few regrets in life.
Yes, you read that right, I am a texter. I am not particularly fond of hearing myself talk. You may assume I am trying to hide something like another emotional interest, and you will have assumed wrong. The only thing that is close to an emotional commitment that I have is with my 16.5 yr old cat. Thru thick, thin, good, bad and scared; she has always been there and let me vent.
I will tell you that I prioritize my life and days as well as having 4 or 5 things going on in my head at the same time. Being hardcore and long term single for so long, adding the social and emotionally important into my system throws it off. I am not good at picking up the unspoken or reading body language. I dont memorize the content and course of a conversation. Texting for me allows me go back and see what I missed, boil it down and keep track of it's course. It also allows me to pick up in a conversation when I get interrupted by something, usually work. Make no mistake. When you become a priority in my life, you will be important and will be at the top of the list. It just doesnt happen over night.
I was the social misfit in the middle/high school period. I put the energy that one normally has in chasing girls into me, learning what things/activities I like/dont like. Learning about how to be self sufficient and reasonably independent. Let's throw the part of being a sailor into this equation. I will say inappropriate things at inappropriate times. Some times funny, some times insulting and occasionally thought provoking. Because I am a retired sailor, i am still a sailor and sailors in general just dgas.
My closest friend lives in Texas. My son lives in Tacoma and is another close, if not closest friend I have as well. I dont do well with new people in new places and have a difficult time breaking the ice with women I find attractive.
I work a LOT. It gives me a sense of pride, accomplishment and self worth to have the confidence and skills to not be afraid of doing the most difficult of tasks that I have not done before and others wont dare. My work ethic is strong and my acceptance of poor personal performance non-existent. Zero tolerance for some of you that like buzz words.
I have a twisted sense of humor. Im sarcastic as hell and can be very dark in my humor. You need a thick skin because I can be equally abrasive and unfiltered. I make very few apologies for who I am and how I am. Long story but I am a product of my experiences. You either like me or dont. I will not chase someone that refuses to acknowledge my existence no matter how attractive you are to me.
I am not 'trendy'. By nature, I prefer the road not taken and the lesser of the popular/underdog. I think for myself because I dont believe others have my best interest in mind. Most of my activities are outdoors oriented as well as being a prepared mind. Yes, I am admitting that I have a prepper side to me. Not the conspiracy theorist type but the practical type. I prefer to have my creature comforts with my camper but I can rough it should I need to. Some will find this quality a turn-off but I am not here for pleasing EVERYONE, just THE one that knows what I am trying to say. Noah wasnt a cool kid either.
Since personal politics is such an 'in' thing these days, let me say that flaming liberals are not a quality i seek or admire in a person. We'll leave it at that.
What is attractive to me? My headline should be enough. What is 'tomboy' to me?, a fishinhuntincampinshootin kinda girl that doesnt mind workin on stuff because the best part is cleaning up. Proportional body. Hair color isnt a disqualifier but I do prefer longer hair over shorter. Common likes in the activities is a major point that I consider. A nice balance of brains and beauty. A pretty face and an empty head just dont do it for me.
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.
