i wont message you unless i see something that REALLY knocks my socks off. i dont need the speach about self confidence. it is more about needlessly talking to myself. i am old fashioned but wont invite myself where i am not welcomed. i am more than courteous. i say please and thank you, sir and ma'am at the drive thrus and counters. i will avoid confrontation and prefer not to fight. i have my reasons but deep in my heart, i am still military.
i'm a dork. i'm socially awkward. i am not comfortable breaking the ice with a stranger....and im sayin that as nicely as i can.
i am many things. one is being a realist. i would surely love to find my happily ever after but my realist side just pulled a muscle from laughing. i speak flowing sarcasm and am often the butt of my own jokes.
once i get past the dork phase, you'll find me to be as loyal of a friend as any when you earn it.
your approval of me doesnt validate my existance. i know who i am and what i am.....a workaholic loner. i am not content with being long term single but i have accepted it.
i've been on pof a long time and i have had fewer dates than a retired butcher has fingers. im not a serial dater and not trying to live out my inner charlie sheen. im super selective and hyper-guarded.
what do i find attractive? sarcasm, brains but not to the point of condescending. easy on the eyes. body type....proportional. enjoying the simple of life. going to the shooting range, camping, campfires, local history....things that expand my smart bank. fishing and hunting.....oh hell...make it a quick read, a tomboy that cleans up nicely.
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.
