Hello and thanks for stopping by! I believe that I am a really good, sincere and nice guy! I can be funny, and love to make others laugh (even if it is at me). I am ambitious and work hard but my definition of success has changed with experience. I believe that the product of my work and its quality is far more important to me than the compensation I receive for doing it, (that IS NOT code for "unemployed").
I work hard but I play hard as well. I really enjoy getting out, whether it is hiking or just rambling around. I am pretty flexible but just don't do well as a couch potato, although couch potato beats painting a house any day! I love college football and basketball but would much rather be in the stands watching the game live than sitting in front of the TV.
I am pretty laid back and even tempered. I usually do not worry overly much with things I have no control over and try to be a solutions guy rather than a master of drama. I do not do well with people who feel the need to completely explode over small, even trivial matters.
I am usually drawn to intelligent, funny, and somewhat ambitious women. I strive to succeed in my life and want to be supportive of the same.
I like all types of music (and by music I mean anything but Rap) and love to see live bands. I can be a movie guy, although I do not like movies as a first date...I am too interested in getting to know my date. First dates, in my opinion should be more casual and laid back. The less stress the better. I am not into pretense either. I love fine dining as well as the next guy, heck, it pays my bills but for a first date, give me somewhere quiet and casual where we can simply talk a little.
At the end of the day, I am just an average guy. I am not a male model and would never be confused with a movie star. A lot of people here seem to have convinced themselves that Brad Pitt or George Clooney are just around the corner if they just wait long enough (Yes, guys do it too). That's not me although I do clean up rather well I think. I hope however, that I bring enough other qualities to the table to make me worth getting to know.
One more soapbox issue and the I will move on. I purposely did not answer the question about my income. The fact is that I make more than enough money to pay my bills and have a little left over. I refuse to undergo a financial investigation in order to go on a date. If I have to produce a financial statement, tax forms, or proof of income in order to meet someone for coffee then it is not likely that we will share the same outlook on the world so we shouldn't waste one another's time. I am not trying to buy a wife, I am trying to meet and develop a relationship with a partner for my life.
At the end of the day, the woman that I seek is basically just a nice person. Compassionate and warmhearted. Someone who likes to smile and laugh and who always tries to find the good in each day. She doesn't have to be beautiful but she should at least appear to care about herself. Most of all I am looking for that one person who really wants to be a part of my life good and bad.
I appreciate your taking the time to read this and wish you the best in your search. Maybe it will be that you find me.
