Middle Aged Male Seeks Life-Long Companionship
Full disclosure, I’m not really into this whole internet dating thing. I didn’t even want to write this, my foster mom made me do it. I’m cool with the set-up we have going on, but she says I’m a gown up man and it’s time to move on to bigger and better things. So here it goes…
I’m an outdoorsy kind of guy. I love to explore the local trails, get a little dirt under my nails, and lounge in the sun. Picnics are awesome too. Food is awesome. I’d consider myself health-conscious; I eat a lot of those tall, green leafy vegetables that grow all over in the yard and I try to stay in shape. I believe in equal division of labor in the household and make it a point to help with daily chores. Right now my jobs are crumb catcher, toy extractor, yard marker, jester, critter chaser-awayer, and human exerciser. I’m willing to do most things to help out.
A few weeks ago, mom made me go to the doctor for what she called a ‘ball-ectomy’. Once I figured out what that was, I was quite positive it was going to be horrible. Honestly though, it hasn’t been bad at all. I see the world in a new light now. I’ve been having more fun with my canine foster brothers. Apparently I wasn’t very respectful of their personal space, but I get it now. Some things are just not appropriate to do with ‘family’. Mom also says that I have been doing better at a thing called ‘housetraining’ since my surgery. My philosophy has always been- if you like it, you should put a little pee on it. Common sense for us dogs, but frowned upon by humans I'm finding. I can see their side better now, so I’m going along with it. This whole warm bed to sleep on, regular meals, and snuggle buddy lifestyle is pretty sweet. I’m working on learning the rules required to make it enjoyable for everybody.
I’m a sensitive guy, a bit introverted, and tend to be shy around new people. I need to get a few good, strong cookies in me if I’m going to really open myself up to somebody on the first date. But stick around long enough, and we’ll be cuddling together before long. I’m not really a fan of cats. I don’t get the attraction you humans have to them. I've met a few kids. They have been ok, the smaller ones seem to smell a bit funny. I'd be open to having some older children, I think. I still startle at, and run away from, some movements and noises. Those kid things don't seem to always know what their body's are doing, so long-term living situations with the smaller ones may not be enjoyable.
Let my mom know if you are interested in setting up a date. She’s in charge of this thing. I’m letting her play matchmaker. I trust her judgement.
