If I winked at you it is not because I am lazy, but I found the percentage of women who returned interest with a wink was about the same as when I wrote a custom email. So, if you like what you see, wink back and then I will show you my creative, humorous side. I am actually honest, funny, smart and loyal. I promise that I am not just saying it because everyone else does. I am fine with exchanging a bunch of e-mails, or skipping right to a call or a date. I love playing beach volleyball. I ocasionally like to bike and sometimes I work out at the gym. I enjoy the thrill of going “all in” on a hand of Texas Hold-Em, even if the stakes are low. I enjoy trying new things. I really like SCUBA diving, but need to get re-certified. In college, I worked in a pub in London for four months and later I taught English in Kanazawa Japan a few months. Despite these two longer-term trips, I have not traveled nearly as much as I would like. I have two children about 50% of the time. I also have a dog, rabbit (my son's) and a small snake (my daughters) 100% of the time. I would prefer to date someone that is attractive (I am not shallow, but I prefer being with someone I really like looking at) nice, intelligent, but above all someone who enjoys life and can follow my occasionally convoluted thinking (or at least pretend to). While I prefer a serious relationship, I also enjoy the dating process. I am sort of old fashioned in that I like planning fun dates and being a gentleman.
