My ideal match likes to try new things even if at first they aren't appealing. Meeting new people, trying a new sport, listening to new music. He must value family and have a good relationship with his children/grandchildren. I'm not a clingy type of person and like my own space and value other people's need for privacy and time to themselves. I have a lot of good friends that have been close for years and I enjoy getting together with them, with or without someone I'm in a relationship with, shopping, dining out, just plain talking about our families and solving world peace. I don't need a gorgeous body but I do value a good mind. My ideal match can be quiet or talkative, either is fine. I do value someone who likes to hold hands and snuggle. I like to watch football and college basketball. I play pool, badly, tennis, even worse and golf, well, I'm pretty awful but I still enjoy them all. I enjoy movies, especially sci-fi and documentaries. My last favorite movie was "Flight" even if I did see it shortly before flying to Jamaica. Gave me pause for thought though : ). I've been to some raunchy motorcycle events as well as Broadway plays and enjoyed both. I enjoy beer stubes and wine tastings equally, sushi and pickled pigs feet likewise. Dive bars and ritzy resorts, makes me no difference, it's who I'm with that's important.
I've gone back to school at USI to pursue a lifelong passion for woodworking. They have a great studio, complete with a very talented professor and more power tools than you can shake a stick at. Being around 19 yr. olds again have given me a new appreciation for their enthusiasm and my wisdom. I've made a clock and a coffee table so far that at least my family says are awesome.
Love to travel and have been to many places in the Caribbean and a few in Europe. A trip to Vegas is on my bucket list. I'd also like to go to Ireland and Germany some day.
I have a house and some rental property. Being a landlord has forced me to learn a lot of remodeling skills. I can lay ceramic tile like a pro and use power tools with the best of them. In fact, I probably own more tools than the average homeowner, miter saws, finish nailers, hammer drills, and a pink tool bucket. I read both Family Handyman and Cosmo.
My summer is usually spent on the river, camping and boating with friends and family. Weekend trips to places like Story, Indiana for the wine tasting festival or Nashville to listen to some good blues. I'm usually trying but failing to keep up with yard chores. I definitely don't have a green thumb but I enjoy tending my small garden.
My friends tell me I'm a lot of fun, a great friend and hard working. I can keep a secret and laugh at myself often. Looking for someone light-hearted with an empty place in his life that I could fill, someone to tell about life's absurdities and console about life's sorrows.
