Let's get it right out in the open,
I’m 40, I’m single, and I’ve never been married because I’ve spent those years learning, growing, and cultivating the qualities that make me worth snatching up and holding on to. Qualities like an education, a job, a career (which for me is not the same thing), compassion, purpose, skills of emotional, verbal, and physical intimacy. Qualities like passion, romance, consideration, courtesy, gratitude, and respect for both myself and others. I have female friends and I have sisters. I know I’m far from perfect, but in my experience many women are terrified to get involved with a man they don’t have to fix. They go bug nutty and start looking for axes under sofa cushions and bodies hidden in closets. You will find neither in my house. I know. It’s scary to not have to do the fixing part. What else is there to talk about when you’re getting your nails done? I have faith in you! I believe in you! You can do it!
I seek a true connection with a woman who can realize that Boys and Men are different things and some of us men are still the good guys. Oh, and that the Thunder From Down Under type guys, are not inherently more likely to be that best friend/ lover, emotionally supportive, wonderful conversationalists your "In My Own Words" section says you're seeking..
I seek a woman who is ready to be swept off her feet emotionally and intellectually. Someone with whom to laugh at the world years from now when some things sag and others droop, and it doesn't matter because the real love that's grown is deeper than that.
I'm looking for someone who's done with the need to play games. Who is comfortable with herself and wants to make a real connection with a man who has reached that same self awareness. Yes. There are parts of me that would like to think they’re still in high school, but none of those parts is my brain. I'm much more likely to be interested in a photo of a woman having fun with a kid at a park, than a woman getting sloppy with her friends at a bar. Much more interested in a woman curled up in jeans and a t-shirt with a book in her hand than a woman in spandex at a trendy club, posing with an oversized Cosmo and the best fake body parts money can buy.
As for looks; I won't lie, physical attraction is a factor in any romantic involvement, but in my experience,though physical beauty makes you stop and look, it's a brain and spirit connection that makes you stay after that look has sunk in.
For myself: I go to the gym 5-6 times a week and actually work out there. Pictures on these sites can be very misleading. If you like what you read, send me an email or respond to the one I send you. I believe no cup of coffee is ever wasted and It's on me. I dare you to accept my invitation and try not get at least one genuine laugh out of it
II embrace things that lift my soul. I laugh as much as possible. I compliment far more than I criticize and say nice things just because I think them. I text people just because their on my mind and do nice things for no particular reason. I'm definitely a MAC not a PC. I admit to having a a geeky side.
My world is pretty good. There's really only one element I need to make it incredible and I'm ready to find her or have her find me.
Are you her? Are you willing to take a chance that your next first date might be the last first date you'll have to endure?
