Sometimes in life all it takes is 20 seconds of insane courage.....
Tell me not to do something and I will do it twice while taking pictures ! Just kidding,... kind of.......I'm part country bumpkin with a slight redneck streak and a lot of Cosmo city girl wannabe. You should own at least one suit . I'm the proverbial "when in Rome" kind of fun. .knowing there's a time and a place.....and I'm in the middle of a yankee/southerner transition. . Don't confuse my moxy or adventurous nature with instability, I am reliable, dependable fairly well educated, well traveled, and I'm looking for a loving relationship with an emphasis on cultivating a lasting connection. (I'm looking for Mr Right, not Mr. Right Now) An immense sense of humor and tongue in cheek attitude may be required.
if you're here to just play, or are a serial dater, PLEASE pass me by. I'm pretty old school at heart and I need a confident, ethical man that isn't afraid to go after what he wants and isn't afraid to create it. Sorry guys, but Rome was not built in a day and I've had my share of dates with petrified men that say they want a relationship but think that any change in their normal routine or stepping out of their comfort zone isn't necessary and trust me it will be .....for the both of us.
I like to have fun in the extreme, or relax, kick back and just "be". Some of my friends call me a "hoot" and totally fearless. I think regimentation is the root of all boredom and I find new and never tried to be exciting. Balance in all things, however is the key to a full life. Full time couch potatoes, barstool warmers or daily drinkers can keep on surfing.
I'm comfortable in a black dress, a pair of jeans or work boots. I'll paint the house, clean the house, & move all the furniture around a few times. I enjoy a comfortable home, and a well equipped kitchen. Chances are I will spoil you rotten with my culinary skills and we'll have to get energetic to stay fit often. Sometimes my idea of fun is a household project, other times it's cross country trips or long weekend staycations. Breakfast in bed and "all day Sunday" during a rainstorm, a full day of football or a stack of movies is the ultimate downtime.
I've spent time as a restaurant owner, have a paralegal degree, was a certified mediator, and am currently in sales as well as an Innkeeper at a beautiful lodge in Kentucky. I get along with intellectuals & entrepreneurs, (so long as you are a great communicator & conversationalist). While family is important my children are independent and make no demands on my time, but for the right man, I guarantee your kids will be glad I'm around. I tend to spoil them rotten with time, attention and plenty of patience and love. Come zip line with me and bring the kids !
I enjoy following sports (especially football), can ride on the back of a bike, love shooting pool, boating, breweries, festivals and travel. Easily swayed to an art museum, theater, a bowling alley or ski slope. Being well rounded and spontaneous is a plus. I have luggage and I'm ready to fly or drive for adventure seeking or escape type trips. I'm also a homebody somewhat of a domestic diva and adjust nicely to staying home so long as I'm surrounded by love and laughter.
I need a positive outlook, a planner, a great sense of humor, and respect. Apparently after taking the POF psychological test, I found out that I like to feel protected. I prefer you lead, and I will follow, especially if you have a forward thinking vision of a bigger picture than I currently hold. Change does not bother me, I think it beats the alternative when you're not realizing your dreams or reaching your goals you've set for yourself. Life is shorter than you think and we all should be living like we are dying.
I have a wide circle of friends from all walks of life, and I'm just as apt to be attracted to a president of a large company as I am a hard working blue collar man. It is the spark, the honesty, the respect, the affinity for one another that matters most to me. I am not political, prejudice or homophobic but for myself prefer a somewhat conservative old school view on relationships. A decent education counts and lasts much longer than six pack abs....of course if you have both, far be it from me to complain. lol I'll be working on mine this 2018 as well a giving up the smokes.
My mother once told me if a man cares about you you'll never have to wonder if he does. I happen to think that's true and I will follow your lead of time and attention or lack thereof. I'm hoping you'll be attentive, affectionate, & strive to create a new story with me eventually everyday. Love silly morning texts and the goodnight "thinking of you" call. Some wonder why certain profiles have been here forever, and think it's because we're too picky....I disagree. I've been on POF way too long, simply because I have not been picky enough Finding a match can't be done by making a list and checking off what doesn't appeal to you.. People are just too complex for that and myself, I've changed my circumstances, likes and dislikes over the years. Maybe you'll convince me to do it again !
