I've been on Match for several months now, but have not logged on hardly at all. I've been in the process of moving back from Virginia and didn't think it would be best to initiate a relationship until I was back in OKC. If you've showed interest or contacted me weeks or months ago and didn't recieve a response, I do apologize.
About me, I'm a sincere, honest person, looking to find my best friend in life, my soul-mate, my help-mate, my lover, and some poor lass who will endure my sappy lame jokes... lol I work hard, love to play, spend quality time with my lady, whether it's dinner, working on home projects together, or lounging around the house enjoying a movie snuggled under a quilt. I enjoy firing up the grill and just chilling with family and friends. I am a 1 woman man. I am not a player nor play games with peoples emotions, and expect and would appreciate the same. I'm not looking for one night stands nor "booty" calls, so if you're not ready for a relationship, please pass me by.
I have a son and daughter(in-law) who I absolutely love and mean the world to me. In September '12, they made me a GRANDPA.. I LOVE IT..... Other than Christ in my life, having my son has made the biggest impact on me. Being a dad has been absolutely awesome, and have been told being a grandparent is even better. I definitely intend on proving them right... lol. I love kids, and consider myself a kid inside a grown-up's body.
It's safe to say that at this point in our lives, we all have lived and have certain amounts of "baggage" and/or issues, (whether it's people or things done by or to us) that we have to deal with. I'm ok with that fact, and am NOT afraid of others' past. I am, however, not interested in continuous drama. LIfe is too short for that type of stress or duress. I want to enjoy your company and companionship, not endure it due to drama... lol
The love of my life MUST be honest. Honesty is by far one of the most important things I'm looking for in a person. Without it, I don't feel one has much of a relationship, at least the kind I'm looking for... I'm also looking for great personality as well as being attractive. When I say attractive, I don't mean the typical "model" figure, perfect make-up, perfect hair, etc. While I do like that, I'm referring more to the beauty in a person's heart, attitude, self-respect, and personality(to name a few).. I'm looking for that connection of hearts, where when I'm away, I think about you while I'm gone and can't wait to be with you again. There also has to be that mutual, physical attraction on both sides. I'd love someone that enjoys attention, and doesn't mind being the center of my world. (I don't mean this in a controlling way.) I am a giver at heart, and absolutely love giving and showing affection or attention, whether it be holding hands, a good morning or goodnight kiss, snuggling on the couch, or surprising you with little notes,cards, gifts, texts or calls randomly just to let you know I'm thinking of you and that you're important to me...
I definitely am not a perfect person, but do try to live my life according to Biblical, Godly principles. ( I've tried that, "walking on water thing," just didn't work out too well for me..) Lol. I realize also that most of us in our lives have made a mistake or 2 as we've walked this life, and definitely myself included. I've learned ALOT from mine, and hope you have as well. I do not judge others on their past, because I realize we're all human, and most of us unfortunately have had to learn some things the hard way... I guess I'm saying here is I can love, honor, and respect someone, inspite of their past. I feel I'm a very forgiving and understanding person, looking for the same...
