Hi, I hope your having a great day! If your not...Alt left arrow now.
I am quite fond of large dogs with personalities. All I can say is large dogs seem to do it for me.
Please understand, this is not an attempt for a hookup.
If you are looking for Mr. Right, you have come to the wrong profile. If I was Mr. Right I am sure I would not be here calling out to all you little fishies..Here fishy fishy.
If you are seeking a real relationship, please be emotionally available for it I am uninterested in a relationship with someone who is looking for a husband, A FWB or a FB, or someone coming off a recent relationship. I won't automatically discount it, but have found that they traditionally leave one or both parties in a much worse situation then if it had never started.
In my opinion, I am fairly average looking. Depending on what you have been exposed to, I could be your Brad Pitt too. However, the photos are fairly recent, so if looks are crucial, the most efficient plan is to just wing it and run if necessary, when or if we meet. If I am just not going to do it for you, go home, take a Valium, and forget about ever contacting me. If you are averse to drugs copious amounts of alcoholic beverages will also work in a pinch. I will not wallow in existential malaise over being kicked to the curb and demoralized. If you really wanted to rip my clothes off, go home, take a cold shower, call me and beg for mercy. Just do not expect begging to be very effective.In return I ask that you be honest and upfront with your personal descriptions. Nothing starts a relationship off worse then a gotcha.
If you are averse to taking even a small risk, we probably wouldn't get along anyway and there are plenty of profiles out there where you can trade off the ability to spell, punctuate and write complete sentences using something that resembles English for a photo and a few misspelled words collected into sentence fragments like, ``Hy How R U.''
I'm not desperate. Because of several meetings in noisy bars which made talking a real chore, I will not meet you any place where a conversation mainly consists of yelling, ``What?'' Intelligence and confidence is a huge deal to me, and trying to deduce intelligence by lip reading over some 80s or 90s hair band being played in the background at 110 dB is difficult. If you want to talk to me on the phone before meeting, I will give you my number so you can block yours and call me.
Personality counts. Let's face it neither one of us wants to constantly beg or plead to get through the day with someone else. As I noted above, I like women who are intelligent, self-starters and traditionally extroverts. If you think you fit nicely into this vision than you are perfect. Ideally you would be between the ages of 35 and 55. The lower and upper limits are not fast and tight if you are. I know this probably sounds superficial, but I am a guy, so what else would you expect?
Other things I enjoy.
I enjoy good musicians. That does not mean "Johnny and the Drumbangers" from some garage in St Francis either. But a great drummer, or piano player or saxophone player I can listen to till closing call.
I am well travelled and meeting up with someone who probably has not been out of the Tri-State area just is not going to cut it for me. A well travelled individual would be a joy to swap stories with.
I will never make anyone a priority that only considers me an option. Sorry it just doesn't work.
I have been a part of a multitude of teams for almost 40 years of my life. I really enjoy teamwork and being a key member of a team. If you are one of those "I don't need" please go look for someone else and save us both the time and the energy. I am quite glad you don't need or want anyone. Bravo. I am not the rescuey type....I have been there done that.
I have no hesitation of getting up and moving. I love travelling. If you are a travel agent or someone that goes someplace a lot. I wish I was you. I have been across the International Date line so much it is sickening.
I like Deep Sea fishing off of New York City in the Summer for Stripers or Blues. Someplace in the Pacific between Baja California and Panama I have enjoyed also.
Things that tug at your heart I enjoy. Christian the Lion, Anything performed to "Requiem for a Dream" "Scenes to an Italian Restaurant to video" Puppies, Children smiling or crying things along that line.
I like good books and am receptive to most things that people really, really do their best to sell me on. I love those type of people who are constantly "You gotta go see, You gotta go try.
Say what you mean and mean what you say. My mindreader software was recalled and my crystal ball is foggier then an early morning drive over the Golden Gate Bridge.
Have fun, does this really need to be clarified?
Improv or Jeff Dunhamm are a pretty good place to meet and both are pretty funny.
Nothing makes me smile as much as someone overcoming an obstacle or winning or losing at the last second in defeat or victory.
I love quotes and books by John Maxwell.
Trans-Siberian Orchestra at Christmas time. Real Christmas Trees. Baking cookies or making fudge at home around Christmas.
Rockefeller Center and or the sights and smells of New York City at Christmas.
Yes, you do miss 100 percent of the shots you don't take. I can personally verify that is a true statement. Watched it, seen it, lived it. Know that it is a fact.
The impact dogs and children have on our lives is so undervalued.
Nothing looks as bad tomorrow as it did today.
The sense of hearing is vastly underated.
People who think and act rationally outside of the box.
I will be moving to the Orlando area in Feb of 2018. Until then it -20F for a few more weeks.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
A good bookstore works fine for me. I sometimes get carried away and spend way too much time or money buying a book that I really do not need but I am kind of OCD with books and bribery or alternative suggestions have been known to be accomodated.
I have never ever drank a single cup of coffee in my life. Nonetheless if it is cold, wet and doesn't require an ID I'm good. A good cup of Earl Grey Tea in the morning works wonders for me.
