So about me..I always find it hard to describe myself when asked, but here we go down the rabbit hole....
I would describe myself as intelligent, and I have been by others also, but I would be lying if I didn't the opposite happens allot, lol. I went to TSU as a History major Geography minor, I was planning on teaching history to high school students. I plan on finishing if I have to rob a bank to get the funds, but short of that I am working on saving the money, I simply don't like debt and loans so I am working toward that goal. If you like history we will get along nicely if not I would love the chance to change your mind. "What is past is Prologue" But learning and education are very important to me regardless of the subject, I learn for fun, I think intelligence is sexy in a woman.
I also love tattoos, I have several something like five or so, ill count them if you like and send pics if asked they aren't Rembrandts but I like my tats, nothing offensive just nice art. I LOVE women with tattoos, that ranks with intellect in the attractiveness category. If you don't have any tattoos its cool I am sure your natural self is more than enough the absence of them is by no means a deal breaker.
I strive to be a generous boyfriend, I try to put myself in the other persons shoes and empathize when needed, I have dated some self centered people and I know how tiresome it becomes, I don't want to put others through that nor go through it again myself. When women ask where are all the good men, I think they need to message me and I can answer that question. I was raised up traditionally in the south so yes and no mam/sir comes out of my mouth allot manners are not dead as long as I live. Going along with this train of thought, if chivalry is dead no one told me, lol, I try to hold doors and be courteous, but I am by no means a door mat, people seem to confuse the two at times, but those who do just aren't used to being treated well I guess. The woman I want to be with would preferably be one who treats others with all the respect they would want to be treated with, you may think it is strange to have to say that but I assure you people can be blind to how they treat others sometimes. I believe in absolute honesty I would rather hear the most blunt and direct version of the truth for everything even if hurtful, rather than someone lie to me to spare my feelings. I will do this to everyone and so expect it in return, there is no such thing as a small lie, they serve only to manipulate and control and how can you love someone and do that to them?
Guns and shooting have recently become a part of my life, I like shooting its fun, and a skill I have been working on. A woman who likes shooting is a real turn on, good thing I live in the south, I know I see allot of women with profile pics of them shooting, so ladies I know you shooter girls are out there, HAHA.
I enjoy movies and t.v. anything Seth McFarland or Daniel Tosh have touched are enjoyable, I doubt I am alone in that though, otherwise I watch Walking Dead and Dexter religiously. I love to lay around the house and cuddling watching movie marathons on rainy days so if you are into that we will get along. I read from time to time, biography and non-fiction mostly but Stephen King's "The Dark Tower" series is close to my heart, and ex got me into them and even if she did nothing even remotely good for me otherwise she did introduce me to that so there is the smallest of bright sides. Women who read tend to attract me, unless they only read romance smut books, lol.
Lets see what else I don't want to over do things.... I think family is very important, I am helping keep my mother losing the family land and her house, the land has been in my family well over a century and letting her lose it would hurt me as well as her so for as long as I am single I rent half of the house since we turned into a duplex a few years ago. I am willing to leave as soon as I have somewhere better to be, I have the resources I pay more rent here than for the apartment I used to have, I don't want people thinking she is helping me, trust me its the other way round, I can take care of myself no problem, but I think it would be an utter and complete shame to let the bank take the house and by extension the land its on.
What am I looking for in a woman? She would be honest as we have already talked about, she is never afraid to tell the truth no matter what its about. She would preferably be shorter than me, but I am kinda sorta tall so not much to worry about there. I want someone that will surprise me and that I can surprise in turn. The ability to converse is very important to me, if you respond to everything with yup and damn, or for real then how can I keep bringing up topics of conversation if they get shot down out of hand, and ladies you can change the subject or start up topics you don't always have to follow my train of thought, I love the chance to listen to people and get new insight on the human condition.
I like to work outside when the weather is nice, which is good since there is always more work to be done on the house or in the yard.... Fishing and hiking are fun when there is someone to do them with, I don't every meet women who do those things so I have not gone in awhile, even my male friends don't do them, sad face.
But I think I have rambled on like an idiot long enough, lol, if you seem interested feel free to message me, or more likely return my original message. I anxiously await hearing from you.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Who knows, as long as we have fun just about anything will work. Tell me what you want to do, ill see if I can make that happen. The only thing that matters really is the company I have everything else is inconsequential.
