Sorry I have to start out with a caveat or two...but if you don't have a picture...please don't contact me. I have to assume you are not single. :(. I know it's hard to put a pic out there, but if I had to do it, you can too! Also, I've had the 'currently separated' status here too, but that said, I am sure you are great, but I am only up for getting to know you if you are divorced or never married. Not a big fan of the shirtless-in-the-mirror shots either, lol. That said...
So let me see...I love to see those around me happy, enjoy going out with friends when I can, grabbing a drink and dancing, and I love to cook. I like exploring new places/restaurants, nightlife, and movies. I try to always make people feel comfortable - I believe my friends would describe me as a caring, giving, and compassionate person (the type of person who will let your car go in front of me during traffic - unless of course you are that jerk who speeds along the side trying to get ahead of everyone, then NO.) ;-)
But really, I hate to see anyone not having a good time, and will always try and lift someone's spirits. In my career, I try to help everyone, even if it's not my job - and I value accountability in others.
I love a sense of humor, dry wit is welcome - it's very difficult to offend me. I was raised with strong manners, putting my family first, respecting my elders, making sure everyone is taken care of first - some may think it's archaic but it's something that I really believe in.
I work full time and enjoy what I do - I am driven to help my company succeed, and am proud of what I have accomplished. I have two young children, who spend half of their time with me. They are the joys of my life. I am also completing my Bachelors degree (late I know).
Getting divorced was not something I wished for or expected, but have brushed myself off and understand that it is all part of my path in life. I am not jaded about love or marriage, thank goodness.
I would love to find someone who has a great set of values, who holds family dear, likes to cut loose on the weekends or when he can, is not quick to judge others, and is sincere. I respect someone who has worked hard in his career, who has confidence, who is successful, yet can be humble (I know in this world of things are all about me me me - humbleness is hard to find).
On the more upbeat side, I think I have a dry wit, can put people at ease, and I'm looking for the same - I love vegging out at home with a movie or book, cooking, grilling, and baking (when I have the time!). I exercise regularly, but I'm not obsessed with going to the gym 24/7 - I take care of my health and my body, and enjoy things in moderation and common sense.
I enjoy what I have, and am satisfied with simple pleasures in life. I appreciate the people in my life and feel very lucky/blessed in general.
