...and I have low mileage! Hello ladies! You may know me from such dating sites as OK Cupid. That has been a mixed experience for me, but since I am an eternal optimist and have been told "you get what you pay for" I decided to try my luck on Match. Worst case scenario, I have some funny stories to tell my married friends. Actually I suppose that's far from the worst case scenario.
I spent most of my 20s and 30s raising my daughter, more often than not by myself. She is now 21, oh-so-close to graduating UCSD, and (as far as I know) not stripping so I'm going to say I succeeded as a parent. I am now a young 43 years old and, while enjoying some me-time, have realized I would very much like to be back in a romantic relationship. I have never been accused of having "game" and have dated only sporadically the past ten years so if you're looking for a smooth operator I may not be your man. Having said that, I'm not exactly the "40 Year Old Virgin" either (although I do love that movie), and I have a lot of energy and enthusiasm that I am excited to invest in a relationship with the right woman.
I am (according to my friends and women I met on Cupid) witty, charming, and sweet. I have always been in decent shape but right now am probably in the best shape of my life. I generally find people and their life experiences fascinating and as such I am an excellent, attentive listener. I have no interest in trying to recapture what I missed out on in my 20s, but I wouldn't mind getting back some of what I may have missed in my 30s, and love going out to new restaurants and bars, social events, live music, etc. In fact I'm open to pretty much anything, and if you have activities you enjoy that you want to introduce me to I'm all for it!
