I'm a positive person, look forward to every day, love to dance, enjoy music, watching football, gardening, swimming, spending time with friends...oh and did I mention love to dance? Looking for someone with similar values that I can enjoy the simple things with: a walk around the lake, sitting on the lawn in the park listening to a concert, a waltz lesson, having friends over for cards or bbq or a Cowboys game, going for a swim, naked housework (got your attention on that one, didn't I? LOL), the non-smoking show at a comedy club, weekends to someplace new or to a favorite getaway.
I've been fortunate to have had the opportunity to travel (Canada, Mexico, Belgium, England, Scotland, China, India). What I've seen of the world has made me appreciate what we have in the United States - it isn't perfect, but it's a darn sight better than most everyplace else.
(While in Belgium, I got to be on their national TV - that was fun. I also did a quick four country drive in one day with my co-workers...just to be able to say that I've also been to Germany, Luxembourg, France and the Netherlands...Our rule was it couldn't be just an airport touch-down and you had to eat a meal in the country...so we ate 4 times that day just to be able to count those countries. FUN DAY! I'd like to go back someday and REALLY see them.)
RE: relationships - even the ones that don't work out are worthwhile for the lessons they teach you. That being said, I'd still like to meet the one with whom it could work out. That would be someone whose mind I can respect, even if we don't always agree.
"As unto the bow the cord is,
So unto the man is woman,
Though she bends, she obeys him,
Though she draws him, yet she follows,
Useless each without the other"
(Quote from Hiawatha)
RE: God - I believe in God, but I am not a church-goer. God and I have conversations when I'm gardening, driving to visit my parents in the nursing home, or just when I'm feeling grateful for the blessing and little miracles of the day. I don't feel the need to go to church to validate my relationship with God, but more power to those who find that valuable. (I do like the music in church, so if that's something you do on a regular basis and want me to participate with you, I'm willing.)
I'm not one of those people who lists a bunch of stuff in their interests that they've never done before...but there are a bunch of things in this world that I've never done before that I think I would really like to do. So if you otherwise like my profile, and you are an avid _________ (fill in the blank), contact me and see where it leads... :-)
Oh, and, by the way, if your pics were taken by you in a bathroom, please don't contact me. I would not be interested in anyone who a) is too shy to ask someone to take his picture b) has no friends who'll take a picture of him c) doesn't find it odd to take their own picture in a bathroom and post it online
