I'm an energetic single father, dedicated and honest, with an athletic side, a geek side, and a cool side. I'm very easy-going and get along with basically everybody. I love to make people laugh -- it's an Irish thing -- to go to a ball game, out to eat/drink or see a movie or live music. I also love to read books, go to the beach, and travel. I exercise every day: running, weights, and yoga. I commute to and from work in DC on my bike (bicycle, not a Harley guy) a couple of times a week. I went to college on a basketball scholarship, as a Division 1 college player. I follow almost all sports, and help coach kids' baseball and basketball. Yup, I'm a guy. I started doing yoga several years ago because I was sick of getting injured running and playing hoops. Like most people, I found that yoga does much more. Strong on the outside, stronger on the inside, that's what yoga will do for you. Now I teach power yoga classes on the side twice a week. I guess that makes me not 100% "guy's guy" ;-)
I have a great job in Washington DC where I monitor and analyze global political and economic events for a really high-profile agency. Getting paid to understand what's going on in the world with co-workers who are the smartest people I've ever met, that's a nice job. I have a PhD in economics from UVa, was an economics prof. at Penn State before moving to DC, and sometimes still teach at universities in the DC area. Insert favorite geek/ bald economist joke here _________ .
I have four great kids and live in a happy home just outside of DC. My oldest two daughters are now in college. I miss them. We have two sweet golden retrievers, sisters from the same litter, who are nearly 12 years old.
You: understand and appreciate the fullness of life, the importance of taking care of many things simultaneously, including yourself and those you love. You're smart in any of the ways that can be true, try to be healthy and physically fit, and have a good sense of humor. I think it works better with another divorcee with children, like me, but that's not a deal-breaker, as there is much more to determining chemistry. You're open-minded, happy to try new things,and, like me, looking forward to getting off of Match.com. Mostly, I just want to be myself when I'm around you.
Thanks for reading.
