So the best defense is a good offense? This is much like writing a resume, so it's hard to tell what keywords push your buttons & which make you pass & move on, so best say the lest. The narcissism is not flowing here. I tend to attract the mean ones, looking for someone to blame on their failed past relationships, & I'm used to it. ; )
I may had been the nice guy you always passed by. Gearing down for the backside of life & looking for a good friend that's going to be there for both the bad & the good! I don't know If I'd ever live up to any of your 'higher standards' from a few of the profiles I read here. I'm a realist, simple, & low maintenance. I met a few wonderful people from this site in the past though, so it's not all bad.
If you are one that would prefer the beauty of natural woodgrain (restored or not), over a white painted surface, then contact me! (or not), & Yes, there is an underlying meaning to this question. If you are enamored with the Harley/Biker lifestyle & "bad boy", please move on. Nein! verdammt Harley! ... perhaps a case of road rash would be cure for what ails you (been there, done that!).
Took the pictures down, & can no longer provide upon request (a big thanks to my male counterparts that you all love dearly, for apparently ruining the private image feature for men by not keeping "Mr. Johnson" in check) ... sorry you missed.
Any local lurkers that would be interested in POF event locally (Mentor/Willoughby/Painesville) in this area, contact me. *(A thank you to those who had contacted me in the past with positive support, sorry I could not generate any interest in this), I do miss my friends from the forums that used to be very active before the f monster took over.
The 80's sucked, left us with a few good tunes, but so cliché, much like right out of a bad Adam Sandler movie. Speaking of movies, recently seen About A Boy (2002.. & yeah, it's old), I see myself identifying with Hugh Grant's character in many ways.
Note, There are Items that seem to be changed, added & deleted on this profile that I have no control over, I'm not sure how or why this happens.
Random thoughts, the Internet.
I note in at least in my personal life, less & less human interaction with the advent of texting, caller ID, being just simple means to avoid actually speaking to someone. (I don't have or do either), & since when has it become OK to drop a personal conversation in mid-sentence to answer ones cell phone? Apparently this behavior has become the norm & is totally acceptable. Everyone is seemingly glued to an electronic hand held device posting & documenting every little event in their life on some website. On the less technical side of the coin, I find it so difficult to keep away, the several daily hangups on my home phone (obvious telemarketers & robo-callers), the endless junk ads in my US mailbox, & E-Mail, creating & remembering user names & passwords... it's enough to make ones brain short circuit! I can see the headlines someday... “Man without phone or headphones attacked by crowd. Witnesses say he attempted to speak to other people.”
The problem with any tool is that, the more powerful it is, the more damage it can do. The internet is the ultimate tool in many ways, so the damage it may end up doing may also be the ultimate damage, far worse than little things like world wars and terrorism and such. People try to stay away from those latter things, but yet they fall over themselves to help make the internet a gigantic lever for those with the means to use. Humans have always been desperate to stand out and to be special, and companies have always wanted badly to know everything about everyone, so that they can maximize the return on their advertising dollar. The internet basically provided the glue between those two fundamental forces in our society. The result may well turn out to be the beginning of the end, because ultimately that information being available in such detail and quantity will be too big and juicy a weapon for the easily corrupted to resist. Having said this, the internet is becoming nothing more than a cesspool of marketing scum, feverishly attempting to find out how to get to your wallet, so can I ask the question, what are you buying today?
Even more random thoughts,
Women seem to be fascinated by the color white. I found they will paint over a perfectly nice rustic wood kitchen in white paint that will only look good for a couple months before it starts to show yellowing cooking film, & stains much like the direction real life takes as it progresses onward, your failed relationships, marriages etc & thus becomes a high maintenance item, or better yet just easier to pawn the problem off onto another.
Obsession with cleanliness and the "purity" it symbolizes to many people. It's a uniquely female pathology, but fairly common around the world. Women do tend to be more fastidious, like cats who are constantly cleaning themselves.
Three cars in the intersection!! (when making a left hand turn), what happened to this rule? Multitasking? People claim they can do it, but in reality, they can't.
Everything I Really Needed to Know, I Learned in Kindergarten:
1. Share everything.
2. Play fair.
3. Don't hit people.
4. Put things back where you found them.
5. CLEAN UP YOUR OWN MESS.
6. Don't take things that aren't yours.
7. Say you're SORRY when you HURT somebody.
8. Wash your hands before you eat.
10. Warm cookies and cold milk are good for you.
11. Live a balanced life - learn some and drink some and draw some and paint some and sing and dance and play and work every day some.
12. Take a nap every afternoon.
13. When you go out into the world, watch out for traffic, hold hands, and stick together.
14. Be aware of wonder. Remember the little seed in the Styrofoam cup: The roots go down and the plant goes up and nobody really knows how or why, but we are all like that.
15. Goldfish and hamster and white mice and even the little seed in the Styrofoam cup - they all die. So do we.
16. And then remember the Richard and Jane books and the first word you learned - the biggest word of all - LOOK.”
& from my personal observation...
17. If you don't get your way, or get your favorite toy at playtime, just bite someone in the arm. After all you still don't know any better, & will never get the blame!
If a woman thinks she can run over you, & you let her run over you, she will run over you.
Obamacare affordable? It's more than a Lexus payment!

Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
First Date: It was in 1984, & I went to see the movie Ghostbusters, may had gone out to eat afterwards.
Optional, (& yes you may choose to "opt out") (In other words this will likely never occur, so cross that bridge when you get to it & if you ever get to it)
