Terrific dogs live with me, all shelter / stray / rescue. They're highly intelligent, high energy, and well socialized with humans and with other dogs. The pups and I spend some time at our river place. It has remote "middle of nowhere" characteristics of the deep Ozarks while being not far from the city. Being retired from working for anyone else, my schedule is flexible. My degree is from Warsh U, but my real education and knowledge are from the school of hard knocks. Am proud of my hoosierotic tendencies.
Would like to stay in an indefinite loving, compatible relationship with the right girl, but can appreciate dating / companionship even when our long term outlook isn't perfectly aligned. Warm, bright, active, animal lover, environmentally responsible, low maintenance, down to earth, natural, ideally with some hoosierotic tendencies. We would bring out the best in each other and we enjoy the other's sense of humor.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
This was the first date section. Ideally we will both want to have a first meet. Location should be free from secondhand smoke.
