***if i message you, and you are not interested. please, kindly just send back a short " no thanks". that way i can block you, and your profile will not show up in the searches. it takes away the chance of repeat messages. I am not one of the insecure weakling that needs to berate women to ease the burn of rejection. it will make the search for my lady more streamlined, and I thank you for it.
* if you wonder why i added you as a favorite, it's because something in your settings wouldn't let me message you , so i use it to show interest in hopes you'll message me so we can have a conversation*
DISCLAIMER: I was told i am " not as grumpy as you look..." i don't fake smile for pics. but i'm a fun sarcastic ass. and if you see me smile at you, you know it's genuine.
I am an avid shooter and firearms enthusiast . i daily carry. if this offends you, or you are not comfortable around firearms, or willing to learn firearms safety, i am not for you.. however, the remainder of my political views are on both sides of the line ( centrist?), i have no definition of political class , i call myself a True Libertarian. as in do what you want, just don't do it around me... do what makes you happy, as long as it doesn't infringe upon my happy place. in that case, just go do it somewhere else.
i asked a close female friend of mine to describe me, and promised to write exactly what she said.... so...
" he looks like a grizzly bear, acts like a teddy bear, will open doors for you, but expect a smack on the ass with it. if you get a "good night" and a " good morning" text from this man, know you are the last and first things he's thinking about that day...."
i get asked often, what am i lookin for on here? honest Abe? whatever comes. ideally, i'd like to find my best friend, that i can't keep my hands off of, or spend enough time with.... but, if i find a text buddy, drinking or fishin buddy, FWB for the short term, i'm not going to be upset about it... but when SHE gets here, i'm her's.
my life can be totally described in Goldfinger, Reel Big Fish, and Less Than Jake lyrics.
i've been on and off here for ages. i've really grown tired of the games people play with dating. it's not hard to make what you want clear each step of the way. if you want white picket fences, say it. if you want a text buddy for when your real guy is ignoring you, say it. if you want someone to lavish you with attention, and take you out for dinner and drinks, with no intent of a relationship, say it. if you want a saturday night, after the bar,****on-call, say it. i hate having my time wasted, and getting my hopes up, but will never be mad about pure honesty. ever. just whatever you do, don't Ghost me. that's childish, and i hate to admit it, but you know as well as i do it does hurt. if you lose interest, woman up, and say so.
so, where i am now, i'm going out ( not as often as i once was) , to find someone to stay in with.
i run a business, a family owned lawn and garden/ farm equipment dealership. i'm the 3rd generation. so, i work long hours.
i own my home. own my vehicles, and other wheeled toys.
no pets, as of now. i'm not home enough to care for a dog at this point. would hate to leave one crated for that long.( i desperately want a frenchie...or pack of them...)..
for hobbies, i really don't have much time for them, as ive dove into work to keep me busy and occupied...
my pics are real, and not the best in my view, but are more or less how i think other's see me. i'm not going to spend all day taking selfies to make myself look better than i will sweaty and dirty after a hard days work, which is what you will get more often than not, so why false advertise?
notes: i don't drink coffee. some find this odd.
i don't have a smartphone. still rock the flip.
i don't tweet, snapchat, or any of that nonsense. i only use facebook.
i am unplugged after i leave work each day, and most weekends. i choose to not have internet connections rule my life.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
for gawd's sakes, make it something other than " Hey There...", i do not respond to the "flirt thing: 99% of the time. and if i do, it'll be some snide sarcasm about people sending messages without reading profiles....
