Have you been there, done that, got the tshirt, still have it? Me too.
I think beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and no one is perfect or always right (least of all me). I know what I like, what I don't like, and what I want. What I don't want is someone who wears more jewelry than I do, is not exactly tall, lives to ride and rides to live, and holds his eating utensils like a shovel. He must be gainfully employed, somewhat emotionally and financially stable, and hopefully his prior bag(gage) is packed and left elsewhere. He must also not take this whole dating site too seriously and take it for what it is. I want to meet people and make new friends, but my ultimate goal is my last "forever" relationship. If nothing else, I can be a great friend.
Also - - this is very important to me - - I will drink alcohol socially but I am not a big drinker. If you drink consistently every night and cannot hold your alcohol - - including in or out of the bedroom - - we will probably not be a match. If you do recreational drugs of any kind, we definitely are not a match.
I say what I mean and mean what I say. I'm talkative (sometimes too much, which is amusing to some, annoying to others, but do know when to keep quiet), witty and quick on my feet (I will make you laugh), and intelligent. Some call me impatient and a bit stubborn, I say I'm just passionate about what I believe in. I am also a great listener, and will help anyone at any time...especially family and friends that I love. I'm loyal to a fault. Oh, and p.s., I shouldn't have to say this but I will: If you're married, keep moving and don't waste my time. I have little tolerance for superficial people. If this means you, please walk on.
All that said, though, I am fairly easygoing believe it or not, and I do not like to argue. Why waste energy on being negative? But, I'm not a pushover, and will let it be known if I am unhappy or annoyed. Then, I'm over it. You will never have to guess what I'm thinking in that regard.
I want to enjoy, and be enjoyed. Anything else is just gravy. My serious, long-term relationship ended last Fall for good. I've dated since then, but nothng too serious. I'm ready to try again. Are you?
