Aaack!!!...you would think for as many times as we've done this that this part would get easier, wouldn't you? Not so much...
Oh well, here goes the sales pitch once again. Hopefully for the last time.
Please bear with me. I am soooo not a salesperson.
Seriously, man. I couldn't sell a bottle of
Sparkletts to a deserted island castaway.
First and foremost, in case you were wondering, the little person sitting with me in my profile pic is my son and he is the center of my tiny little universe. He's also light years cooler than I could ever hope to be (damn him!!!).
If you look close enough you can tell he has BLUE HIGHLIGHTS!!!...lol.
My closest friends and family have described me as a "stand up guy" (thanks, Scott), "generous to a fault" (especially around Christmas time...lucky you!!!), a "neat" freak (but not like...Howard Hughes/OCD freaky) the "best friend you could ever hope for and an even worse enemy ("Scorpio" trait...sorry), and my personal favorite, a "rebel with a brain" (I miss you, Rachel).
As for my personal opinion of myself, I like to think I am pretty easygoing and always open to new experiences and meeting/making new friends.
"Like attracts like" I say.
My interests run the gamut from reading anything I can get my greedy little hands on (a.k.a. getting in touch with my "inner bookworm") to working out as often as I can (I'm not quite up to Brad Pitt a la "Fight Club" standards but I'm working on it).
I've had the good fortune of being able to travel a bit over the years and hope to continue doing so in the future.
Some of the highlights of my past journeys would include:
1. Watching the sun rise over the Japanese countryside from the top of Mt. Fuji (AWESOME).
2. Rappeling off of a "helo" skid into a triple canopy jungle in Central America...at night!!! (If memory serves, I think I actually pee'd myself a little bit on that one) and
3. Shopping (Yes, "shopping") for black pearls in a French Polynesian marketplace.
As for "who" or "what " I'm looking for on this site, I'm sure there was a time there where I may have blurted out something along the lines of "Salma Hayek!!!!!"
But these..I..um..mmmmmmm...Salma Hayek (insert Homer Simpson voice here).
Oh, sorry about that. I was having a moment. Where were we?
Oh c'mon!!!! Even YOU have to admit she was smokin' hot in the snake dance scene in "From Dusk 'Til Dawn."
Seriously though, physical attraction is all fine and dandy. And make no mistake about it. It's as important as is anything else in a relationship.
But once Father time has had his way with us and parts of our anatomy start either expanding or heading south for the winter, you better damn well have more in common with your partner than the mutual agreement that you both "used to be" hot.
Personally, I 'm a big fan of "keeping the lines of communication open."
Communication is an important facet of any healthy relationship because unfortunately like most guys, more often than not I have to be hit over the head with a brick just to simply "get it".
Having said all that, here's to wishing you all the best in finding whomever or whatever it is you're looking for in this haphazard world of cyber matchmaking. Best of luck to all of you.
Take good care, be well always and above all be safe.
