Heard a very nice quote from a friend:
"Someday, someone is going to walk into your life and make you realize why it never worked out with anyone else."- kinda gives one a bit of hope in the "treacherous" POF waters don't ya think?? :)
I'm originally from the East Coast and have the sense of humour and quick wit that comes being a proud Maritimer. I've also lived in Texas, British Columbia and Alberta and have enjoyed seeing different parts of Canada. I have two tattoos, one is a homage to my East Coast roots (shown in picture), and the other one is a Bull and my birthsign......
Trust, honesty, respect, reliability and compromise are high on my list, and everyone deserves each of those qualities in a person. I am open-minded and enjoy trying new things and seeing what life has to offer, and I cringe at people that are judgemental, arrogant or ignorant. Communication is also important. It's hard to sometimes know what to say, and in some circumstances its ok to say nothing. Some of the best communication is done with the eyes and a smile. Not looking to rush into anything, as it takes TIME to get to know someone and I have done the "whirlwind romance", and it just DOESN'T work!! . That being said, I would prefer not to spend weeks chatting on MSN, as I am actually on here to meet my soulmate.
Looking for an honest, affectionate, uninhibited and attractive (to me) woman. I love to laugh and live by the creed "Normal is boring". My friends and acquaintances would describe me as a "nice" guy (which sometimes is the kiss of death), as well as being good-looking (but the farthest thing from vain), with the nicest eyes you've ever seen. I am not looking to date multiple people and hopefully neither are you, and I am not interested in being with someone just for the sake of being in a relationship. I know the bar scene is not the place to meet that special someone, and thought I would cast my line in this "sea" for that special "fish" :)
I'm looking to see if there is anyone out there for me. I am far from perfect and neither should you be, but am hoping that I can find someone that will make my stomach do flips, or at least ache a little from the laughter and butterflies. I've read so many times on this site, as well as heard in person- "want a nice/honest guy" or "sense of humour a must!" .. Well, (clearing throat) HERE I AM!!
My sense of humour can be described as goofy, improvisational, sarcastic and VERY original (ahhh so many adjectives, so little time!!).
If you would rather suck more on a cigarette than on my lip, then we probably wont be a good match TRANSLATION.. Prefer occasional and/or non-smokers......
Please respond only if you have a picture, after all you know what I look like, and fair is fair!!
If you've read down to this point, one thing I will mention is that I live with the effects of a spinal cord injury, and walk with the assistance of a cane- so while my wit and humour are quick, my legs are not so much..... :)
.... Thank you for dropping by, and send me a line if you have a sense of humour and my profile interests you!!
***** IMPORTANT POF SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT *****
For all you lovely ladies out there that seek a man WITHOUT any (uh-hem) "baggage", we ALL have it (yes, even you do). The SECRET to a successful relationship (or so I've been told), is a "fish" whose "baggage" can be tolerated the most..... (insert Twilight Zone theme here)
DISCLAIMER... the forementioned profession "Smart Ass PhD" does NOT refer specifically to a job title, more to a personality trait... So if you are looking for a Doctor, please move along ... However, I have been known to dabble in Recreational Gynecology from time to time!

Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Would like to do something that would allow us to talk and get to know each other, and HOPEFULLY get those pheromones a jumpin' (AKA "attraction"). Whether that would be seeing a thought-provoking movie that we could discuss at a coffee shop after, or meeting for a bite to eat, and going for a walk, or maybe Chapters afterwards... just wouldnt want to be caught at a noisy nightclub, or a place where we would have to scream at each other to communicate.
