I recently got out of the Army and started my own company and make my own hours. I am a country boy at heart but don't take that to mean I am "simple-minded"- I do have a college education. I believe in working for what I want in life and I want someone who will be a partner in my life, not someone who wants a "daddy" figure to take care of everything. I can do it all myself, but who wants to do that? At the end of the day, don't we all want to know there is someone who cares about us and will be there for us to rely on if we need them? I would love to find someone who is capable of helping me finish off the Sunday paper crossword, if you get my meaning. I want to meet an intelligent woman ("life smart" is more important then "book smart") to be able to have a conversation with. I have a decent sense of humor and laugh often. It would be great if I could find someone to laugh with me. Here's a definite PLUS for you ladies... I will actually sit through a "date movie" without cringing....lol It's not what I'm doing that make a date GREAT, it's who I'm sharing it with!I am looking for a woman who knows what she wants in life (and from a man) and is not afraid to go get it or ask for it. I want a woman who cares about her appearance, but doesn't obsess over it. The truth is that the outside of the package always gets your attention first, but if the inside doesn't match, then it doesn't really matter. I believe in monogamy and honesty and expect the same in a partner. If you find "head games" entertaining, you're not the one for me. I want someone who knows how to have fun and isn't too scared to "step outside the box" every once in a while to try something new or silly. Life is too short to be sternly serious about everything! A great date could be anything from a carriage ride to a picnic in the park to a fine dinner or snuggling in front of a movie. If you feel the same, then contact me!
