Where do we begin? I have had an interesting life, with ups and downs. I've been on countless adventures; I've kick boxed in Thailand, lived in Syria, and seen lots of different places.I have always learned from all of my experiences good and bad. Life is a journey so why not enjoy the ride? I can be super serious or super goofy. I love to stay fit, and I know how to handle myself in all kinds of settings. I am the right combination of good and bad, naughty and nice. I am both worldly and simple. Most importantly, I am my own person and I know what I want. I love playing up my perceived stereotype, and at the end of the day, never take myself seriously.
Love me or hate me, I have my principles and I stick to them.I've seen the flip side of many coins, that has either made me 'grow' or become jaded... you decide. I don't look at the world/life in the traditional sense. I also have a tough time accepting dogmatic statements, so it is no surprise I have a tough time dealing with authority :p.
Beauty may only be skin deep, but attraction IS important. However, beauty alone fades and is common; style, class, grace, and wit are not. Last but not least, I can not stand jealousy or insecurity!!! I am a firm believer in the 'Golden Rule' and treat others like I want to be treated. I know how to make a girl feel special, and I am not afraid to show or say how I feel.
As you can probably tell, I don't have trouble meeting people, but I do have trouble meeting someone who can capture not only my eye but also mind and heart. I'm skeptical about the whole online dating thing... but feel free to prove me wrong. I am over fleeting and superficial encounters, I'd like to definitely meet and connect with someone on more than just a physical level.
I am brutally honest and have high standards, I dont think that is unreasonable given what I am willing to offer my partner in crime. I want to be the best and I want the best. I'm certainly not cocky, but I am confident in who I am. There is more than meets the surface, and that is also something I desire in a woman.
I'm going to list what I don't want first:
-If you have no idea why you do what you do, and your therapist has to sort out why your life is such a mess, we won't jive. By now, you should know how to avoid repeating the same mistakes and bad choices.
- I expect someone as attractive as I am. However, if your bra size exceeds your IQ, we won't jive. Sorry, I'm not impressed by looks alone, if that's all you've got, we probably won't hit if off. Street smarts and a kind heart go a long way.
- No, I'm not looking for a one-night stand (although they do happen, a guy who says they don't is either lying or inept, which do you want?). No, I'm not looking for a new wife (although I suppose it could happen). There's happy middle-ground between those two extremes, whether casual or committed. And no, just because I'm attractive doesn't automatically make me a player. If you're a 'hottie', does that automatically make you a slut?
- Relationships are not fairy tales, I'm not prince charming, and you're not a princess. It takes work from two. If you don't get it, we won't jive. I can bring fantasy to life (can you?), but we have to re-visit reality occasionally. I can sweep you off your feet, but you'll have to knock my socks off. If you don't think you can get me barefoot, you probably can't.
You SHOULD message me if:
If you're smart, classy, fit, grounded, fun, like to laugh, secure with yourself, NOT crazy, and have read my entire profile. Is that too much to ask?
***Tell me your favorite animal if you send me a message, that way I'll know you actually read my profile ;)***
***I am also aware of how champagne is spelled, my user name is a play on words from one of my favorite movies***
