Hi. I'm a nice, funny, regular person - I think. I'm pretty happy, but being in love would make me even happier. It's been a long time, which is probably a good thing. But now I think I'm ready. Yikes!
Some random things. I love olives, and getting hot dogs at the movies (yeah..... I said it, go ahead and mock). I always get choked up when Charlie finds his golden ticket (in the original, although I liked the newer version as well) and it makes me sleepy when someone whispers in my ear.
While I do like getting cleaned up and going out with friends, during the day I am frequently covered in paint, or soil, depending on what I'm doing for work that day. I love my work. Also love my cowboy boots, muscle cars (wish I could buy one and please note, I wrote muscle cars.... not monster trucks), classical music (don't worry, I don't expect you to love it) and a television show called Archer. On the other hand, I'm not nuts about purse dogs (just get a cat), baby showers, mani/pedis or anything that's gonna put the word "Juicy" across my butt.
Where my "dream" guy is concerned, being taller than I am would be good, as I'm a tiny little woman. Let's see, my dream guy would be a really good person, like sports AND science, not be afraid to get his hands dirty once in a while, does not think that Papa Murphy's pizza is a good idea for a second date, can do things I cannot, and can make me laugh so hard that I snort a little bit. Someone who doesn't take himself too seriously, and who won't ask me to send him naked pictures of myself the instant he gets my phone number. Apparently that's a thing now. Who knew?!
........ oh, and someone who is NOT in his TWENTIES, or (scary) YOUNGER! Apparently that's ANOTHER thing. I don't get it. Likewise, if you're just looking for a friend with benefits, I should point out that I'm not good at that. - So I'm probably not the one you want.
Also, a few specific things. I like kids, and if you have them I'd be happy to meet 'em! Conversely, it's cool if you do not. No worries there either way. Ummm, I don't really get why guys write to people who live in different time zones, and if you don't post a picture I probably won't write you back (after all, you did get to see one of me). Also, not to beat a dead horse, but really, if you're in your twenties, while I appreciate the kind comments, I'm really too old for you. Just accept it, yes? Gracias!
You don't need to be rich, or super duper accomplished, multilingual, or a genius. LIkewise, I'm not gonna shut the door in Superman's face if he shows up. That would be rude! - and he would probably be very useful around the house, just sayin' (are you paying attention, Man of Steel?). Point is, if you're interested in the world, enjoy irreverence (if you're a super earnest guy, I'm probably not for you), like animals, and most importantly - can make me laugh - drop me a line. I hope you're doing well, wherever, and whoever you are.
