NOTE: ONLY LOOKING FOR LOCAL MEN. I'm not good at long distance relationships or pen pals. If you do not have a face pic then please do not contact me, I do not like to chat with faceless men for a multitude of reasons.
I'm 6'1, 235lbs with a 36waist, 48chest and 100% Top. I'm stocky with a hairy chest and legs. I'm a pretty simple guy, can go from blue jeans to tux but really just enjoy my cut off sweatpants and t-shirts. I'm looking for a person to share my life with, I'm not looking to raise a child, take care of an elder and certainly not the addled. I have a very dominant personality and can sometimes be a little bossy and stubborn and I do not suffer fools well. I'm a very loyal type of guy even to a fault and am very protective of my close friends and family. Both of my parents have passed away so my two sisters are very important to me. I'm not into the bar scene, in fact I'm pretty much on the peripheral of the gay scene. I choose and prefer small groups of friends than wild parties. I'm 100% drug and disease free and a non-smoker and only looking for the same.
I've just bought a new home and have started enjoying my life after years of working 70 hour weeks and being too busy to worry about what I was and was not coming home to. While I have the greatest friends in the world I still come home to an empty home and sleep alone thinking about the ones that I let get away. I'm a big believer in monogamy and being loyal, through sickness and health and for richer or poorer. I've been through it all with my friends now I want to go through it all with a partner.
I have a goofy sense of humor and laugh at all the inappropriate things that guys laugh at. When I get nervous I laugh so I'm not the best person to take to a funeral. My humor bounces from sarcastic to self-deprecating but I love to laugh and see the sparkle reflected in the eyes of my partner when he laughs. I also have a very limited filter and can at times seem abrupt and callous but I am working on that. I'm also a true Southerner, was born in the South and raised with manners and still believe in and practice the social graces. I'm attracted to tall men right away, and always masculine men, me, I'm masculine, slightly aggressive partly to cover my shy side and not attracted to feminine or hyper-masculine men or men that "act" straight. I can change my own oil, shoe a horse and program a computer and make a great thanksgiving turkey, seriously, I can shoe a horse.
I have a little bit of baggage but at 45 and living a life of world travel and leaping while looking who wouldn't, that was rhetorical. I enjoy really simple things now, no more suits and ties, no more tux and cummerbunds I really just enjoy my old cut off sweats and a t-shirt. I still like the occasional night at the theater or formal party but a glass of wine on the patio with friends is still my favorite. I'm really trying to enjoy the things that I have ignored or not thought about for years. I thought for years that I was jaded and cold but I think I was just overwhelmed like most adults and afraid to admit it so I just kind of bulldozed my way though life. Now I'm more aware of the wake a person can leave behind and the environment around me. I've callously broken a few hearts and my heart has been broken twice, karma, I do know now that I want someone in my life, I want someone to chose me, to love me to pick me and I want to do that for that other person as well.
