ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

My friends say that I'm a great catch. Hmm...perhaps that is why they're my friends :-). In my years I've learned a couple of things. One that readily comes to mind is: "It is really hard to start off having a bad day when you wake up next to the person you love." That is an original "Craigism" as far as I know (by the way, my name is Craig, how are you?). If someone else has said it before, that's cool too, perhaps we should meet...:). Another original: "A tuition bill and a social security check should never land in the same mailbox." Being that I had kids a bit later in life, if yours are materially younger than mine (ages 14 and 16), that could cause a violation of that semi-sacred principle.
I love being with my kids, my friends, and especially that someone special to share the good times with. Intelligence, a sense of humor, loving to laugh, compassion, good health, athleticism, honesty, and trust are all things I believe I possess, and am looking for in a great woman (needless to say, I don't subscribe to the "opposites attract" theory). I stay active and in good shape (6'3", 225), have all of my hair, and still a fair amount of brown ones. I should note that I am 3 yrs. older than my profile says because the way Match selects who you fine women get to see based on your age paramaters. I have been told I look 10 years younger, and certainly feel that way (I know I am the first person to ever say that......:-)
I surmise that I'm 1 for 1 in the marriage department, and am looking for the next dream girl, as I know how incredibly blissful a strong loving relationship is. Since I had to disclose that I am a widower... My wife was only 37 when she died of a rare sinus cancer some years ago. We had a great love spanning 10 yrs. of marriage. I know I can attain that again, because I truly recognize the attributes of a great loving partnership. I believe in the silver lining theory. I have had the good fortune of: two great kids, a wonderful marriage, living in a home and neighborhood that I love, traveling, a great career, great friends, and I'm financially secure.
Now, I can focus on a good balance of life (another "silver lining" realization). I'm a devoted dad who takes care of all of my kids needs, and most of their desires :). The only missing piece is my partner.
I feel it is safe to say that am not as tightly wound as the stereotypical CPA/CFO. I enjoy getting together with friends, hosting get togethers, and good music. I have hosted several fun parties, because my house beckons. I have even occasionally ventured into the live band arena. Great times, and yes, even our friends in blue came, but even with the recitation of law, I saw a couple of feet tapping as we spoke lol. While virtually every neighbor was there, there is always the 1 guy, oh well. Life is short!
It is great staying home snuggling with your sweetie watching a movie with the fire crackling in the background, or going out to a nice restaurant or perhaps to a local watering hole for drinks or dancing or maybe just a game of pool. Sometimes, it is great to go out with family, sometimes friends, and sometimes just a romantic night alone.
I believe that a great relationship is a partnership based on the foundation of trust. You share, you love, and you are best friends. A man and a woman will certainly have their differences; we are inherently different beings. However, to communicate is to overcome.
After a 4 yr. term, I recently left the Board of Directors of a tremendous children's charity that helped my kids when we faced adversity. I finally acted on my desire to give back, and it is a great feeling to come full circle. It was very cool when our star student, Inocente, had a short film documentary about her that won last year's Oscar! Hey, it's never too late.
You can never laugh too much, or have enough good friends. Oh yeah, and the backflip traditionally starts the summer parties!
