I'm a quiet guy with a friendly attitude, positive look at life, and an open sense of humor (let's just say I'm easily amused and I love to laugh). I am who I am and I stand by what I believe in. I'm a tall guy with a quiet personality, spending my time with those who let me be myself without pushing me to be them. I'm a fun and witty wise-guy, a wanderer, a wonderer, and an idealist. I have my sarcastic bantering side, enjoying the quick comeback and reposte, as well being the reciprocal shoulder to lean on. I'm extremely open and honest, but I'm also loyal and sincere. I'm a loving romantic, always looking for a way to show my appreciation and affection, but I was also brought up to be a gentleman, mindful of my manners, and respectful of our differences.
I'm looking for depth, friendliness, a mature confidence (eh, everyone has moments of shyness...as do I), self-respect and self-esteem. A woman, who, like myself, is easy going, light-hearted, easy to laugh, optimistic, and kind. Someone who looks out for others, though not for recognition. She's a woman in touch with her feminine side dressing up and at the same time enjoys the outdoors (fishing, camping, etc.). Independent in nature but wanting a friend to share life. As for things I don't like, let just say this in terms you’ll understand and similarly avoid: 1) You wouldn’t draw all over your car, would you? Hence, I too can’t stand tattoos. 2) Guys who have horrible hygiene, don’t shave, and who are so overweight they look like they haven’t exercised a day in their life….yeah, I bet there's a shortage of men like that on here. 3) Guys who date only for sex and see relationships as a method of getting laid every night. Sound good to you? Well, apply those to women, and those same types of women scream “RUN” to me. Not being shallow, insensitive or sexist. Except for certain diseases, people are a certain way because they choose to be, whether it is how they dress, how they live or what they do. Moving on
In some ways I feel like I was born in the wrong era...in the wrong place with the wrong rules. I remember when I was younger, much more idealistic, but no less certain that a girl existed "out there" who wasn't interested in the normal guy. I don't have the perfect body, the perfect clothes, and a girl on both arms competing for my attention. I was the tall, athletic, shy kid with glasses, quietly reading a book on the grass. Lol, I still am, even though by now I've probably delivered more babies in elevators than most guys...thanks to my job. Growing up, mom and dad told me that I was a good guy, taught to be a gentleman and treat all women with respectand even though I'm no shy little kid anymore, I still can't help being nice. Problem is, we nice guys treat the good girls nice, who smile, call us sweet, and then they go off like sheep to the wolves, who put them down and treat them like crap. Well, there's plenty of those types of guys on here all looking to sweep you off your feet with their cute words and practiced lies. I on the other hand relate more to the outdoorsman of the West, the kind of guy who can sail a boat, tie the needed knot, fix the fence or the broken arm, calm the wild horse/dog/etc, brave the storm, rescue the damsel in distress by rappelling off a cliff, lead the search for the lost child, explore the unknown...you know...be a man who isn't intimidated by the unknown because he trusts himself. I'm articulate and witty...in my geeky way, but I'll never be the city type of guy. Those guys know their way around a party, can dance, and STILL kiss the girl
So, if you want a smooth, flashy and social butterfly...then keep looking, I'm not him. If you can overlook all that and want a personable guy you can feel safe with, who treats you with respect because he enjoys your company, and who doesn't act tough to compensate for his insecurities, then I'd like to hear from you. This site has only a few of me and plenty of the other. Take your pick.
