Welcome to my profile. Come on in and have a seat. I'd offer you a drink, but I haven't quite figured out the logistics of that.
Allow me to tell you a little about myself. I'm a good person. I don't cheat - my crappy golf score proves that. I don't lie - refer to my golf score and lack of "big fish" stories. I don't steal - I owe, I owe, so it's off to work I go. I'm gainfully employed and very appreciated where I work. I'm reliable - If I say I'm going to do something I do it. I am prompt - I don't miss meetings and I don't show up late. I do however forget birthdays. See, I told you I am honest.
I'm a kind person - I understand consequences and I have empathy. I like to discus things, not argue. People can have a difference of opinion and work things out without fighting. It takes effort and understanding. (I wish our world leaders could figure that out.) I treat people decently and respectfully.
This is starting to sound like a job application. How do you tell people about yourself and keep them awake?
I love being on the water! Swimming, fishing, cruising, whatever! I'm most relaxed and at peace on the water. My type of fun isn't limited to water sports, i just prefer them - good thing we are in Florida! (Did the exclamation points help any?)
Bla, bla bla bla bla. It all sounds like crap. The only way to get to know me is to meet me. My sense of humor does not come off well in my writing. I love to laugh and have fun and comment on the here and now with one-liners.
I was raised with manners, so I use them and yes, I believe in opening doors for women. I like doing little "I love you" things for my partner, like picking you flowers, or giving a back rub, or even washing your windshield if I see it's dirty. Words are cheap, actions say a bunch.
I prefer shorts and flip flops over dressing up and pretending to be someone I am not. I know which fork to use with a full table setting, but that life style is not for me. Prim and proper I am not. If forced to occasionally make a showing at a social function, I will go and even make you proud with my behavior, but rest assured that the second we get in the car, the coat and tie will come off and I will probably say a few swear words just to get back to my normal quota.
I'm not certain on what to put for what I'm looking for. A relationship? That's setting the bar quite high right off-the-bat, I think. How about - I'm looking for "hello". Where it goes to from there...? Let's keep our options open. If we find that we can't stand each other, then thank you and good luck to you. But if we feel like we can't stand to be apart, then I'll be thankful that we found each other.
