***BE KIND TO ALL; YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT AWFUL THINGS PEOPLE ARE GOING THROUGH IN LIFE ! ***
I always thought friendship was important to women. Even as I have offered friendship to women , I have been turned away. Seems like an all or nothing deal. Intimacy or ignore. Don't get me wrong; Sex is cool, but in the confines of a monogamous relationship. I am not the stereotypical nice guy either. I am a loyal person, but not someone that can be pushed around. Being an eternal optimist, though certainly not naive, I believe 'going all the way', can be gaining the maximum relationship you have with someone you have a good rapport. Maximum, might well be a 'friend'; Is that really so bad??? For the record; I keep it light. I speak to ladies, well, as if they are LADIES. Bottom-lining this, life really is too short.
I do not expect much in a lady, but I expect a lot. I expect my other half to be MY BEST FRIEND. Sense of humor is important. I like current events and friendly debate with my lady. I like women that are genuine, down to earth and women that are strong minded. I am attracted to feminine, yet natural women. I want a lady to be 'herself'. In other words be REAL. I do not expect anything from a date. Horror stories get around . I am UNCONDITIONAL. A night out with me ,DOES NOT mean the rest of the night in bed, to put it BLUNTLY! I treat ladies with respect and I expect respect for myself. We are all human beings. MOST IMPORTANTLY, I like a woman that SMILES at the tiniest of joys. A Smile makes everyone better looking.
I ASPIRE TO LEAD A LIFE OF CONTINUED HAPPINESS. I let most things not bother me.I am responsible with my life; including finances, my health, driving and everything in between. People that know me , especially if they have driven with me; Know that I am so paranoid, that I would not even have one drink when I drive.....Well, maybe one and usually before a big meal. Overall, I consider myself a good guy [guess I am biased ] .I have a 4 yr Bachelors. I have a career where my degree does not matter. I DO NOT JUDGE ladies whether they are college educated or not, I JUDGE ones heart. Of course, Friendship, as well, is important and the basis of a solid romantic relationship. I am basically a clean cut kind of guy with NO piercings NOR TATTOOS. My hair is somewhat longer than the average guy. I truly do not worry how others see me. I do believe in some chivalry. PROTECTING MY LADY, paying completely without coupons on a first date, holding hands,being romantic etc. AS THE GUY, I MAKE THE INITIAL PHONE CALL. I will NOT compromise on this issue. Some women do not let men be men; they actually want the men to leave their number; Are you kidding me? I think many men compromise basic DATING ETIQUETTE out of desperation. Luckily ladies, I am not that guy! HOWEVER, I have no problem giving my phone number during the first call, though it is most likely on caller ID anyway . I truly appreciate when a lady does small things for me, especially token gestures. I guess that is the sensitive side of me. I am a caring, generous person and greatly admire that virtue in a lady. Relationships should be based on "WE" not "I". Whom I eventually pair, we will be in this thing of life TOGETHER as a TEAM. Unfortunately, I have come across my share of women that were looking for a relationship more of aspects of what they can get of it. I do not mind doing all sorts of things for my lady, but I will catch on if it is onesided. I am a good guy, but not someone that will be the only one making an effort in a relationship. Most of us agree that the small gestures, go a long way in sustaining a relationship; Whether it's a business relationship, friendship, or romantic. Lets converse and see what happens ! IF YOU ARE TO CONTACT ME , PLEASE HAVE PIC POSTED , I TAKE THIS SERIOUSLY AND IF NOTHING ELSE PIC PROVES YOU ARE A LEGAL AGE LADY. THANK YOU FOR RESPECTING MY WISHES . Hopefully I am aging gracefully. ;)
I AM NOT LOOKING FOR ETERNAL CORRESPONDENCE ONLINE. I adore ladies and speak in a non-sexual manner. If your intention is to never trust me enough to meet face to face and get to know me in the real world, let alone even phone ; Please do not contact me at all; my time is valuable. It gets very frustrating because I am the one guy that does NOT talk raunchy , that women complain are few and far between. I DO NOT DO WELL AS PENPALS. If after a few CLEAN messages, of course, correspondence is not taken to at least the phone, my GENTLEMANLY style of doing things is to wish you well in your search, with no hard feelings.
I APPRECIATE the fact that you took a DECADE out of your life to read my profile. :)
