It's been over a year since I logged on here. I'll have to update my pictures and read through the stuff I wrote below (written about 3 years ago), and probably make some changes there too.
I'm just looking for a friend right now, maybe someone that could become much more later.
I suppose I better write something more than the two short sentences I had if I'm going to find someone. I'm not real comfortable writing this stuff but once I get going it will probably get kind of long.
Your probably wondering how I'm different from all those other guys:
~Have never cheated, ever, not even one inappropriate kiss. It has left me feeling like a fool a couple times but it is also something I am proud of.
~Can fix or build almost anything. That doesn't mean I'm going to fix your stuff or build you a deck, unless maybe if you help me finish a few of my projects.
~Have no debt except for a couple of years left on the mortgage of the house I bought when I was 24.
~Floss about twice as often as I shave, hope you don't mind a little stubble. (UPDATE, I shave more often now, especially when I have someone to kiss)
~Rarely drink more than two or three beers, seems I've always had to be the responsible one.
~Cook or prepare about 90% of what I eat from whole foods. I almost never eat fast food unless it is someone else's choice. There is almost no processed food in my house, not a jar of spaghetti sauce in over five years, I make my own from the tomatoes and herbs I grow. I do enjoy a gyro, walleye fingers or a pub burger sometimes, usually around 1:00 am if I'm out. But I mostly eat pretty healthy.
Your skin color or where your ancestors came from is not important to me. Or whether you have stretch marks, or big boobs, little boobs or if they sag a little. LOL. I find I really like a nice smile. I've also found that I'm very attracted to nice shoulders and arms. If I like that part of your body I'm probably going to like the rest too. I see them most often on women who could be described as thin, athletic or petite. Though sometimes they describe themselves as "average".
A lot of my pictures where taken in the wilderness, it's about the only place people take pictures of me. I do a week long canoe trip at Isle Royal National Park with my daughters each August and one or two long weekends to the Boundary Waters with friends each year. Occasionally when I need time alone or just want to challenge myself I'll go solo for a few days. If that's something your into or would like to try that's great. If not, it's not a big deal. It's something I love but it's not something you need to. I like hotels and beach vacations too
If your wondering if "Friends" is code for friends with benefits, it is not. I don't think I'm the type for that kind of relationship. Not that I'm against benefits! They are probably easier to find though than a real friend. If we were friends and there were benefits I think we could come up with a better way to describe our relationship.
If I don't respond to your message it could be that you have a cat, I am allergic to them. Or you could have chosen average as your body type and then carefully cropped your photos so all I can see is your pretty face. But more likely it has more to do with me, a personal preference, or what's going on in my life, how I'm feeling that day. .... I do like them all though whether I respond or not.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
I read good date ideas on some of your profiles ("shooting pool, bowling, science museum, walk around the lake, hiking, .......") but then we always seem to end up having two drinks during happy hour that feels more like a job interview than a date. I think I'm done with the "coffee or happy hour" date. If I'm going to pluck my ear hair we are going to do something fun!
