Edit:***I found a lady off-line. I'm just here for the forums now. I'm not accepting any messages.****
I'm an easy going guy with a bit of a dry sense of humor. I am a bit opinionated as you'll find out as you read on. Understand though that no pretty face is going to make me compromise my principles. So if I remain single, so be it. I like my job and I do it well. I enjoy watching hockey(LA Kings and local Ontario Reign), going to comedy clubs, Road trips(Half the fun is getting there), hiking, swimming, watching movies(Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, A Few Good Men and Happy Gilmore are a few of my all time favorites.) I like to try new and unusual foods ,although my favorite food is anything with BBQ sauce(I'm also fond of sushi.) I try to stay in shape, and exercise regularly. I'd like to find a woman who is a straight shooter, who says what she means and means what she says. I don't want to end on a negative, and if this doesn't apply to you then don't worry about it, but this has to be said: It's a huge turn off if a woman believes in "The man has to chase me" game, and doesn't at least meet half way in terms of making an effort at forming a relationship. So if you believe in sitting back and having the man do all the work, then you're not the one for me. Finally, to those of you firing off about chivalry and tradition, I do the polite thing like opening the door, and treating people with respect because I want to do it, not because you demand it or use social mores to bully me into it. I'd do just about anything for a kind, sweet, and HUMBLE woman, NOT for a demanding woman who has a misguided sense of entitlement. So when you say most men don't act like gentlemen anymore it's basically the Yin and Yang philosophy of one cannot exist without the other. There needs to be true proper ladies to coexist with gentlemen. Besides, if we went back in time and pulled a perfect "Gentleman" from the early 20th century, most "modern" women would label him dull, boring, and chauvinistic.
I recently read some good tips on the internet that pointed out some Red Flags to watch out for(This is actually good for both men and women to watch out for):
1. She fails to exhibit any genuine curiosity about you, your life and what's important to you.
2. She constantly name-drops and brags about her professional accomplishments.
3. She treats people in the service industry as subhuman. (Always observe how she treats waiters, cashiers, etc. It will tell you a lot about her character.)
4. She keeps asking probing questions, attempting to determine how much money you make.
--Alright, I wanna end on a positive note with a joke:
This is actually a Valentines day joke, but it's also a good dating joke in general:
Once upon a time... there was a man in love, looking to buy a gift
for his new girlfriend for Valentines day. He
didn't want to get her something too flashy
or too personal since they had only been
dating for a few weeks...he decided on a
nice pair of gloves with warm furry material
on the inside. He then decided to have the
store gift wrap it and deliver it to her house
with a personal note he wrote.....Well, the
store had a mix up and delivered the
wrong present. She opened the package to
find a sexy pair of underwear. She then
read the note that he wrote......."To my
sweet Honey Bunny, I wanted to get you
something to keep you warm and that you
could show off to all the guys at your
office. The style right now is to fold it over
a bit and have a little fur showing"
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
I'd like this to turn into something meaningful with a woman who doesn't believe she's Gods gift to men. There have been a lot of bad on-line experiences with some serial daters so I think something quick and simple is the best for a first meet. If we hit it off then we can plan something more elaborate and fun the next time, if not then no harm done and we part ways.
(PLEASE READ BEFORE SENDING A MESSAGE OR REPLYING BACK) If your main interest is what a guy does for a living, please DON'T message me. Move on to your next victim, or buy a lottery ticket or something. Also, if you use the words "Princess" or "Loser" anywhere in your profile, DON'T message me. Lastly, I'm not looking for platonic friendship or simply companionship. Seriously, don't spin my wheels if you're just looking for an activity partner. I want a loving relationship, THAT IS MY GOAL and only reason for being here. So if you're just looking for a male friend to have around to use for free labor and to take you out to dinner now and then please DON'T message me. I'd rather be completely single than in a purgatory hell type of relationship like that. Thank you for reading.
