I've been told I'm easy to be around, grew up in South Dakota, a very different world from LA.
I have one child, she's in college (in Texas) and is the coolest thing that has happened to me. I raised her from age 8, as her primary custodial parent. It was the hardest thing I've ever done and I wouldn't trade the experience for anything in the world. She's getting married this year to a guy i really like, he's the son I never had.
My username is something someone called me back in college and, it's pretty accurate, I don't get upset about much of anything, and enjoy just being a nice person, I hold open doors, smile, and love people, I'm constantly amazed and pleased with how the vast majority of people are good people, and learn from them every day.
I read a few reviews and I figured I'd do a pro and con about me :-)
-Employed, continuously for decades.
-I'll be a millionaire in a few years, it hasn't been easy, but I'm on track
-Love kids, and grandkids, animals.
-BS in Nursing a long time ago, and have a ton of experience in health care, have worked in hospitals all of my career, ER, ICU, currently in an OR type setting that's really a great job and cutting edge kind of stuff, I love it.
-Enjoy cooking (and eating)
-I'm a hands on person, I like to hold hands, hug, slip my hand on the small of your back when we're standing together, waiting in line, etc...
-Traffic doesn't bother me, unless I'm late for work.
-I honestly had a pretty wild youth, but got my act together as an adult decades ago (LOL, no felony charges from my youth, but to be honest there could have been, and I did inhale)
-I'm not particularly forgiving of people that are dishonest or untrustworthy, it's a woman's prerogative to fudge her age a bit, but the important stuff matters.
-Am a morning person, you probably need to be one as well, I wake up in a good mood, especially if I have some coffee/espresso machine, coffee grinder, and some dark whole bean coffee handy.
-Am a gadget hoarder, have had an iPad since they came out, and of course I have the new one, and a handful of phones at any given time, a Kindle, etc... I invest in the sector, and use that as an excuse to buy gadgets :) This could be a plus, when you drop your phone in the sink, I always have a spare for you.
-Have been married (and divorced) twice, both ex's are remarried, no drama with them, and very little contact either, I think they're happy and I'm happy for them.
-I'd like to find someone to marry/have a long term relationship/live with, in no rush, and one of my favourite quotes is "Reality is what happens while we're attempting to plan for the future."
-I can be stoic, best I can figure it's from growing up in the middle of no where, and being comfortable with silence, unfortunately, I've met a few people that assume I'm brooding or unhappy, that's far from the case, I've caught myself missing my turn off on the highway because i was thinking so hard about something I just heard on the radio.
-I'm frugal, it's difficult to save money, but I have no debit, and while that trip to Bora Bora would rock, I don't want to be poor when I'm old, you need to be on board with deferred gratification.
-Sometimes, being around very sick people takes a lot out of me emotionally, and my job is demanding, emotionally, and physically, (recently I had to change my scrubs 3X in the same day because they were drenched in sweat, and I'm not a sweaty guy). I'm very good at it, but sometimes I need a recharge, and someone that has the time to just cuddle and be there.
Pro tip: I have been focused on retiring comfortably for nearly 2 decades now, if you're inclined to think that way as well, we may be a very good match.
