Think of me as your typical “nice guy” with a bit of an edge. The edge is not anything you need to be overly concerned about; I’m just not boring, as I’m told nice guys sometimes are.
Here’s what you get with me: A 40-year-old man whose body is somewhere between average and a few extra pounds. Since cutting fast food entirely out of my diet, I’ve dropped 10 pounds and feel fantastic! In addition to my newly slimmed-down figure, you get a man who is honest, compassionate, courteous, romantic, and will do just about anything to make you laugh. This man also has his own home, his own car, and has worked at the same wonderful company for over 10 years. Basically, I’ve got my…uh…stuff in order.
I’m the proud father of two boys, ages 10 and 12; both of whom live with me full time. Don’t worry…I have plenty of family and friends close by who can watch them so we can enjoy our date nights! There is no “baby mama drama;” the ex and I get along just fine…for ex’s anyway. My boys…they are as different as night and day, and a wonderful challenge.
Family is very important to me. My parents were married for over 40 years until my dad passed away earlier this year. My two younger brothers and I are still very close and usually meet once a week at my mom’s for family dinner. We’re a close-knit but very accepting group. Also, I'm a man of faith and have my own relationship with God that suits me very well.
My greatest passion is singing. Had I been more adventurous in my youth, I would have pursued a singing and songwriting career. Alas, I now just sing at the occasional wedding or funeral, and visit a karaoke joint once or twice a month to get my “creative release.” In any case, if things work out between us, you will be serenaded constantly!
I’m not without my quirks. For one, I suffer from ichthyophobia. The fear of fish. I’ll eat fish, and I’m fine in aquariums. I’ve even snorkeled with them swimming around me. I just have a hard time touching them. Something about their scales and those buggy eyes. That’s about the least manly trait I possess. Also, I can’t stand horror movies or incredibly spicy food. Seriously, I can’t understand how people can derive enjoyment from those two things! Oh well, to each their own I guess. And finally, while I’m very handy around the house, I would gladly pay twice what something is worth if it means I don’t have to put it together. Bikes. Cribs. Dressers. I’ll buy them already assembled, thank you very much! You want faults…well, there you go.
So, what kind of woman am I looking for? To borrow a line from the movie “Crazy, Stupid Love,” I’m searching for the perfect combination of sexy and cute. Someone who has an inner beauty that matches or surpasses her outer beauty. Someone who is a woman of integrity, who loves affection and attention, and who is willing to stand by my side as much as I am willing to stand by hers. And, on a more shallow level, she has eyes that pierce my heart every time she looks at me and smiles…and she has skinny ankles. I know…weird. Some men as ass men, some are breast men. Me? I like skinny ankles. Not a deal breaker, but a definite plus!
So, don’t be shy. Share with me your thoughts, your dreams, your ambitions, your fears. I’m a great listener. Bottom line…let’s help get each other off this site!
