what type am i looking for?.....tough to describe but she would be a mix of Nicole Curtis, Jessi Combs, Kari Byron and Shemane Nugent. yeah, i know....you might have to do some googling but you'll understand. i like a strong woman...not power lifter/gym rat type but mentally. we all have our ups&downs and sometimes i need someone to be strong for me when i dont think i can.
on the outside i lead a fairly boring life. i keep to myself and walk my own path. i prefer drama to be a spectator sport. i dont have a harley or ride so i guess i'm already off of some of your lists.
i have no crazy ex's you need to worry about and i refuse deal with yours.
not good at small talk and more of a listener than a talker. i'm easy to talk to but not easy to talk with....if that makes sense. i am often the butt of my own jokes. to you it may seem as a display of poor self esteem. to me, it helps me distract myself from the nervous tension i have with new people. being a sarcastic smart ass is one of my most obvious personality characteristics along with distance and indifference.
I'd love to be the one to disappoint you when I don't fall down.
my job....well, i'm a bit of a plumber, welder, machinist, electrician, mechanic, macguyver and magician. it's hot, dirty, potentially dangerous, occasionally frustrating and i enjoy it. it tests my problem solving skills as well as my mechanical abilities to make me better.
fiercely guarded and not much of a dater. not comfortable in new places with new people. when i commit and feel absolutely safe with you, then i will bare my soul. just dont be in any hurry. i have been my own island for so long that it will take an INCREDIBLE woman of not only character but inner strength to show me the world is more than just me and my island.
if pigs could fly....they'd sh!t all over my truck
i'm not a drinker nor do i try to find the answer to my problems or slay my demons with a bottle. i do enjoy my rum&cokes but not at any regularity. those days that make you say ' i need a drink' are the days i choose not to drink.
sorry if this isnt one of those knock your socks off, make ya dewey profiles. im just me, making my way through the cactus patch of life while trying to avoid the pricks that go with it. rarely will i make first contact. not that i dont find you attractive and appealing to me, but i just dont like the feeling of a one way conversation as well as that whole introvert thing.
if you write to me and i dont reply, i must say thank you, but i am not interested. i do not respond to a 'hi' or a 'hey there'. those are too much like a robocall from the site. please be a tad more vocal.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
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 and LOTS of alcohol. jello has more rhythm.
