Maybe starting off so blunt isn't the proper way to do this but at this stage in life there is no sense in playing games....right? Being on this site is not my way of filling a black book full of numbers or to look for a hook up or a booty call, so if that's what you are looking for then pass me by. My true intention is to find my last first date!
So you wonder, what can this guy offer that others can't? Well, for starters, honesty...sometimes it's hard to hear but in the long run isn't that what we all want deep down? Strong morals...sure the bad boy image may seem attractive to some but wouldn't you rather a person that does the right thing? How about being loyal, sincere, committed and caring...surely that has to be attractive to some of you to know that no matter what your man is going to be there for you.
Of course these are all just words at this point and you may be thinking it's all just more B.S. that you are reading on this site, but I can prove all of it given the chance.
I am a very active person and love to live life!! Acting my age is out of the question, to me age is nothing but a number, it's your attitude and actions that determine how old you are. Now I'm not a fanatic about sports but do participate whenever possible and yes, I try my best to outdo people half my age!! I enjoy baseball, softball, tennis, rollerblading, skiing (snow and water), football, hockey, motocross, beating up the neighbor kids (only the small ones) LOL, hiking, working out...it's a long list. Attending sporting events is always a good time but not a priority. Again, sports are not my life, I just mention these to show that I am an active person and not a couch potato. Some say my sense of humor is very good but a bit warped at times, and a bit sarcastic as well (all in good fun though), making people smile and laugh is something I try to do everyday even if it's at my expense.
During the warmer times of the year I like to get on my motorcycle and go on spontaneous road trips...doesn't matter where, just go with no agenda and see where you may end up! Could be a beach, a small town with a fantastic restaurant, a dive bar with the best burger ever, a beautiful wooded trail to hike...the fun thing is, you never know!! There are so many beautiful places to see right in our backyards. Something else that is great during the summer is live music, it's a passion of mine, so going to outdoor concerts is something I try not to pass up (enjoy ALL types of music,except rap).
Being a Firefighter for over 30 years has humbled me in many ways and shown me how precious life really is, I truly believe in helping others...and the adrenaline rush is pretty cool too :) we are all given a gift that needs to be shared and this is my way of giving back for all I have been blessed with.
I've always been a hard worker so you don't have to worry about supporting me, I do just fine in that area and I'm pretty handy around the house! I'm always up for a challenge and try my best to fix everything myself (sometimes it actually works too!! LOL) Oh, and I can cook...and not out of the microwave either!! LOL
I love children and don't mind at all if you have them, I have 2 grown boys myself, and 3 adorable grandchildren so having more kids in the mix is not a problem with me!
Now don't think I can't sit still and relax, one of the best things to do is to grill out with or without friends and family or sit around a campfire, even in the winter! Going out to eat is also awesome, love to try new places, but a nice home cooked meal and an evening on the couch works just fine for me (with someone next to me though).
I attend Church on a regular basis and strongly believe in Gods word and what He has done for us and prefer someone that also believes.
Many think what I am looking is impossible to find, but wouldn't it be great to find someone that you look forward to coming home to everyday... someone you can call your best friend and mean it.... or can't wait for that person to walk through the door?? There is no greater feeling than when you just hold someones hand and you KNOW they want to be there with you, or to find a silly note they left just for you....and an unexpected kiss...it's not impossible to find, and I want to keep looking until it comes along.
Physical attraction is important, lets not try to kid anybody here, but true beauty comes from within.... whats on the outside may get my attention, but whats on the inside will keep it :)
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
I LOVE nature so depending on the weather a walk in a park or somewhere that has character (buildings with architecture,museum etc.) so we could get a chance to talk and then hopefully a nice dinner somewhere....and if it's still going good maybe a comedy club,I love comedy. Spur of the moment works for me most of the time but not so much on a first date, or until we get to know each other, I want you to feel comfortable first and then the surprises come : ) and most importantly on a first date....I would like for the both of us to smile, isn't that what we really are looking for ?
