THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IN LIFE IS FAMILY.. With that being said here goes more.. I have lived, loved, succeded, and failed. I work as a professional Firefighter in the Bay Area and love "almost" every minute I am allowed to work at this profession. I have a beautifull 8 yr. old son , who means the world to me. Nothing and no one will ever change that. I love to laugh and in turn love to make others laugh. I have more than once been known to be the life of the party, and usually can accomplish this without making too much of an A out of myself. I still believe in being a gentleman, and treating a woman like a lady..Doors will be opened and flowers will be bought. I take pride in looking, dressing, smelling and feeling nice.With this being said I am still able to throw on jeans and a t-shirt along with my tool bags and build whatever I want.( I come from a family of Builders and Artists). I would love to meet someone who is independent, yet wants to depend on me.. A smart, sexy, beautifull, person who can have a good time in the tshirt and flipflops, or get dressed and hit the city like a couple of mavericks. Looking for someone to walk to coffee on sat. morning and just read the paper and people watch...Are you her?
