I'm a successful, hardworking guy that lives up to his word and looks better than his pictures. I believe honesty is more than just not telling lies and if I didn't put myself out there, the real me, all I’d be doing is putting out a perception that I wasn't willing to live up to.
A few years back, I decided to change careers and looked at two competing firms. I didn’t need either job but I wanted to work for “Company A”. At the first interview, Company A’s manager asked me three versions of the same question. I knew the answer she wanted to hear and I told her what I truly believe. I was good with not getting the job because what they wanted was someone I would never be.
“Company B” really recruited me. Even though I wasn’t interested, I interviewed anyway. Interviewing Company B, I found a lot that I liked about them. Going through the process, I learned we clicked in ways I hadn’t seen. When the job offer came, I actually laughed when I accepted it. I didn’t get what I thought I wanted, and what I thought I didn't want, ended up exactly where I was supposed to be.
While definitely different, I find a lot of similarities between that experience and this one. I didn’t need the job and I don’t need a relationship to complete my life. I’m good with where I am. And while I want someone to share our lives, I also want someone who wants me for who I am. I know what I want and I am open to possibilities I haven't imagined. I do what I am supposed to do, everything else works itself out.
I want someone who has a good combination of looks, smarts, humor, confidence and adventure.... That woman will want a passionate, active, adventurous and affectionate man. A man that will tell you what he thinks, not tell you he thinks you want to hear.
We'll dance til the lights come on, I'll make you laugh, and get you to the front rail at a concert. I'll learn who you are, surprise you with unexpected gifts, random trips and long passionate kisses that you wish would never end. I'm a guy that drives with the top down, knows how to pick a good bottle of wine, cooks incredibly well and even does dishes. Are you open to possibilities you haven't imagined?
If you are, meet me some place public, a bar, a coffee shop, a park, doesn't matter. Let me know where you and your girlfriends will be hanging out for happy hour. This isn't a date, it's an old fashion introduction. I'll introduce myself, we'll talk for a bit and if there's no spark, we both go on to live happy lives... If we spark, well exchange numbers and see if we get a fire going.
