ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

I am divorced and have joint custody of my two sons who are 7 and 10. I am looking for a cool, beautiful and intelligent woman to spend time with and get to know. Ideally, this would lead to both of us being "beyond happy" with each other. This IS possible and I'm really looking forward to it...

I am 42 years old, but don't feel like it...

When I go "out", I usually head to The Meanwhile, The Pyramid Scheme or Stella's…

Some of my favorite TV shows include True Detective, Arrow, Girls, True Blood, The Walking Dead, New Girl, Scandal, American Horror Story, Homeland, Orange Is The New Black, Alias, etc.
Not a big fan of reality shows...but used to love Temptation Island! :)

Music is huge for me. Some of the bands I love include The Cure, Depeche Mode, Skrillex, The Smiths & Morrissey, The Pixies, Ministry and Queens of the Stone Age…But, I also like more popular stuff like Ellie Goulding, Daft Punk, Lorde, U2, Lana Del Ray...old school metal like AC-DC, Motley Crue, Ratt, Black Sabbath...and good hip-hop/rap like Run DMC, Ice Cube, Beastie Boys and Jurassic 5! If it's cool, I dig it...

Not really into country...unless it's Johnny Cash, Patsy Cline or similar old school goodness!

I love all kinds of movies…Some of my favorites are Inception, Star Wars, Edward Scissorhands, The Goonies, Super 8, Old School, Anchorman, Prometheus, Kick Ass, Life of Pi, Blue Velvet, Twin Peaks, John Hughes films, Superbad, District 9 and Rushmore…I am also a sucker for a good tearjerker/romantic "chick flick"! Dolphin Tale, About Time and The Vow all made me cry...and I thought that Seeking a Friend for the End of the World was amazing!

In High School, I was a "star" athlete, but I don't really follow or watch any sports these days…

The person I'm looking for does not need to be just like me...In fact, I would welcome the chance to learn new things, ideas, and ways of doing things. I'm excited about beginning a new chapter in life, which includes writing new stories of awesomeness, closeness, adventure and discovery.

Ultimately, I'd like to find a woman who "gets" me and is able to express herself both intellectually and physically...holding hands, hugging and kissing are all things that I can't live without! I am looking forward to making someone really happy some day, being romantic, doing the little things and lifting someone up on all levels. Life is not just about paying the bills, doing the laundry and following a rigid schedule! You only get one, and I am looking forward to making the rest of mine amazing.

When I say that I'm looking for a relationship, I honestly mean it. I know it takes time to develop a real relationship and connection, but if you aren't willing to truly allow someone in, to be vulnerable and to show the real you, then I'm not interested!

I realize that beginning a relationship with someone new can be scary, involves letting your guard down and requires work...especially when it begins with a couple pictures and quick story/summary! But I've found that if I just sit back and hope that my dream girl will fall from the sky, I'm going to be waiting a long time. So, let's cut through the nervousness, second guessing and fear (myself included), have some faith and take a chance! It could be what we've always wanted...

Interests:
Coffee and conversation, Dining out, Movies/Videos, Music and concerts, Nightclubs/Dancing
Sports & exercise:
Baseball, Dancing, Swimming, Yoga
Exercise habits:
I'll tell you later
Pets:
I have Fish
Pet Essay:

I like animals but I'm not really a "dog person"...I'm actually allergic to bigger short haired dogs like labs and rottweilers, and other dogs that shed a lot!

Middle of the Road
Sign:

College:
Calvin College, Grand Rapids, MI
For fun:

Favorite things:

Reading w/ my kids, working on Legos, playing Wii U, concerts, electronic music, Thai food, authentic tacos, Chobani mango Greek yogurt, neatness and organization, hugging, discovering new things to love that I never thought I'd love, & contentment
