After a bit of prodding from my married friends (well, actually their wives), thought I'd give this on-line thing a chance as a way to meet someone without the whole awkward first date "getting to know you" stuff...and then finding out you don't have much in common. Nothing ventured, nothing gained...right? Anyway, I'm not on here looking for someone who's perfect...just perfect for me.
I'd much rather talk about you but I'm forced to do this part. Anyway, as for me, I've been told I don't look (and sometimes don't act) my age. It drives my younger brother crazy when people think he's older than me.
Oh, and for those of you who may be a bit leery...just because I've never been married doesn't mean I'm afraid of a commitment.
I love being outdoors and active, whether it's landscaping or fun stuff. I'm a former marathon runner (not world record material...but always finished). I enjoy running, bike riding (pedal...not motor), swimming, golfing, an occasional kayak trip...all when the yard work's finished. (Looking for someone to help me get back into shape after a knee operation over the winter). Spending time working on house remodeling projects lately but will curtail them for anything fun....especially for home Steelers or Pitt games....just got to tailgate. Could really use some decorating guidance on the finishing touches so I don't end up with Mario Lemieux bobble heads as accessories.
I have a great, diverse circle of friends who always help each other out in each of our own distinct ways. Most of my friends are now married with children. It's a good way to still do kid stuff like laser tag and sledriding/tubing though it's getting more difficult to sometimes find someone to do adult activities with(without babysitters).
It seems everybody says this...but really - I am looking for someone who makes me laugh and more importantly laughs along with me. A bit of sarcasm with a little silliness on occasion thrown in....goofy sometimes is good. She should enjoy being active and not afraid to throw her hair in a ponytail or ballcap and head out somewhere. However, just staying in and sharing the cooking and a movie curled up on the couch works too....vegging out can be a good thing...in moderation.
Eventually, I'd like to meet that person who makes me excited every time I hear her voice or see her face...who I miss when she's away, and appreciate when she's here...basically to become my best friend.
But first things first. Let's spend some time together and see how it goes.... oh and as my one concession to typical "guydom" I am visually oriented so please have a photo. Sorry, I won't respond to winks without one.
