I'm a gregarious and fun-loving guy who has worked on the road for almost two decades and finally brought it home! I've just updated and added more detail to my profile as things have solidified for me in career terms and where I am ultimately headed.
I like to smooch at the kitchen sink in the morning while coffee's brewing, bum around with my partner when time permits, accomplish mutual goals when bumming around isn't a priority. I don't mind waiting for you to shop or do things that are important to you on a personal level, as there'll be times when I need you to take an extra minute or two for me somewhere. I believe in give and take, fairness, and equality. Stopping to smell the roses is good, but somebody has to tend the rosegarden, and I think it's more rewarding to do it together than alone... You think?
I like weekends at music festivals, or hittin' the road for a ride or a weekend event.
I play guitar and bass, including upright, or bass fiddle- whatever you like to call it- So, that's to say that I play those instruments proficiently in their acoustic AND electric incarnations in a variety of genres, although I grew up playing bluegrass and related acoustic music. Hence, I love the weekend festival/performance thing. Gimme a stage-call and an excuse to go, and I'm on it!
As a footnote, I will say that though I spent my life driving truck from coast to coast, among the reasons for my choice to change careers is the ever more negative image the industry has today. I have never engaged in some of the behaviors that have earned drivers a less than savory reputation or endangered my health and wellbeing. Smoking cigarettes and drinking a few beers on a night off, yes, but never any lot-lizards, lol. I hope this clarifies my quality of character for anyone who has reason to believe that a truck-drivin' man can't have principles and self-respect.
420 is okay with me- I am a musician, therefore I will not lie- Just not a regular thing for me, but GREAT with coffee on a weekend morning, before brunch, lol...
Find the guy who calls you beautiful instead of hot, who will lie with you under the stars and listen to your heartbeat, or will stay awake just to watch you sleep. Wait for the one who will kiss your forehead, who holds your hand in front of his friends, and who thinks you are just as pretty without make-up on. Wait for the one who often reminds you of how much he cares and how lucky he is to have you. The one who turns to his friends and says, "Thats her."
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Would love to go and eat something we both like, or have an interest in discovering together, then maybe take in a live show somewhere agreeable with enough time between dinner and the show, between the acts or sets to maintain our momentum...
I'll take your hand and we'll cut a swath wide enough for an army of us! Something gently invigorating after we've shared a meal and conversation, yet nothing so loud as to disengage our focus or impede our flow... Something just right... I don't mind if you tell me what you'd like to enjoy together. Communication is essential. Let's just have fun!
Poker runs, music festivals(be ready to camp or at least hotel it- these things are weekend events and I frequently get my arm bent to play a series of shows with someone who's short a musician...) If the weather's cool, It'll be extra fun!!!
