ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

If all you can write to me is "hi"...please don't. Sorry, but would you find a guy doing so intriguing, appealing, intellectually stimulating? Would you write back? I think not. So let's drop the sexist, lazy double standard. If you want a decent guy perhaps more than your photos should do the work?
--

I think I know how this works now...your inbox gets slammed with emails of all types, some creepy, some dull, and some funny. But how do you pick? Is being funny the best reason to pick a match? If you read women's profiles on here, it is by far the #1. So maybe you skim a few profiles...

What I have noticed is that as in normal life women consistently choose the douche-bags with a cutesie haircut, even when they really should know better. Take for example a friend of mine, let's call him Bob. Bob is a few years and pounds older, bald, broke, a never married recent father- but one thing Bob does have is 'game'. Only problem is, if you know Bob well, you might after enough dates is that every word out of his mouth to a woman is BS. Then there's me. I don't do BS, and I don't do lines. Oh...but I'm not that funny. Sarcastic yes, make fun of myself and love to laugh; always. But I don't have jokes up the sleeve. I'm not here just to entertain, or as so many profiles say "make me laugh". In fact I hope you bring some charm, whit, and smarts to the table yourself...too much to ask? Back to Bob-while Bob was fudging through college sleeping with as many women as possible and perfecting his game, I was dating an awesome older woman (as in just one), traveling the world and then going on for a masters so I wouldn't be poor, or always stuck working for the man. I'm the polar opposite. Successful, educated, traveled, I make my own schedule for my own venture that I built from the ground up. I know the value of hard work, and though good with computers and business can wire/plumb a house, rebuild a boat, and change oil blindfolded. I work between two countries with bars and restaurants being my favorite office, and travel a few months a year for pleasure. Sure I tie work in, but hell I figure if you are going to be single any excuse to travel and adventure, particularly by water is worth taking. My lifestyle goal for 2013 (different from business goals) was to wear shoes that require socks as minimally as possible. A perk of giving the finger to the corporate world 9-5. Love snow, mountains, and skiing...or that feeling when you finally reach the restaurant after braving the cold and snow...but at heart I'm an island boy...and love the water/tropics.

And is it just me, or has dating gotten tougher now that a bit older/wiser? I'm finding the search for an awesome, sweet, adventurous woman with smarts, that is sane, unmedicated, not in AA, not stoned 24/7, not immersed so much in match that her attention span is less than a 2 year old being force fed cotton candy/espresso...not such an easy task!

PS- I like Bob, and Bob will do just fine. He just prefers a women with breasts especially large in relation to her IQ, and submissive enough to handle the machismo, controlling, jealous latino ego. This will appear sexy to start, and with some lines & jokes, charming even. (Don't ask me to explain, I don't get it either)

Normally I wouldn't be so blunt. Puffing like a lizard tends to attract the type of person that I don't want as a long term partner...but clearly I've been doing something wrong on Match..just being a cultured, honest well rounded guy doesn't cut it apparently. If you've taken the time to read this, either agree or disagree, feel free to let me know. Thanks, and happy hunting.

Me..
I am highly ambitious, yet have learned to enjoy the journey. Have above normal expectations for a potential match, but offer the same in return. Intelligence, creativity, honest, sweet...and sincerity is key. I lead a colorful life and feel a little adventure and travel makes being alive worthwhile. Would like to share with the right person.

For fun:

Love to travel...adventure travel in particular is a big one for me. Enjoy experiencing food and drink of the world along the way. Enjoy motorcycles, cruising yachts, road trips, backpacking, wine and eclectic cocktails, cooking...the great outdoors.

Favorite hot spots:

I have a love affair with Spain in particular, Europe in general, miss Bulgaria, and currently infatuated with boating the British Virgin Islands.

South FL: Tap 42, The Room, Broken Shaker, Setai, Delano, Shore Club -too many restaurants to list

Favorite things:

Don't let people fool you and call it luck, it's a conscious and concentrated effort to change one's life...

Besides travel and boating, a big one for me is projects- ie rebuilding a house/boat. I'm pretty handy-and it's a nice change from a cubicle

I live on an ocean going motoryacht . Very much a passion of mine. If you're not open minded to that- we probably won't be a good match. No I don't float around the ocean all day, & yes I have power, a guest room, kitchen etc. Quite fun actually IMHO

A few years ago, had a realization. Perhaps the perfect 'job' is the one that allows you to do, what you really want to be doing anyway. Simple, right? For me that's travel, boating, good food/craft beer/wine of the world, cooking mountain biking etc

Although I have spent time in the corporate white collar world, I exited to start my own blue collar venture, and couldn't be happier. While I like the challenge of building it, I like the new found freedom and flexibility it offers me to live best.
