I was in a relationship for over 15 years, and have 3 wonderful daughters from that relationship.
I have my life in pretty good order now, I have shared custody of my daughters, and their mother is in another relationship, so the drama is all over, and I'm in a place where I am ready to find someone to enjoy life with.
I have a very rewarding and stable job that keeps me very active. I have my own house, as well as a cabin. In the summer, I spend a lot of time at the lake. I am primarily an outdoors person, but I do some house projects to keep me active when I am not outside. I have a good sense of humor, and I am willing to try anything that involves laughing or having fun. In the summer at least, I do a lot of lake/cabin activities - boating/tubing, BBQ, bonfires, laughing at the poor souls who waste a perfectly good day chasing a golf ball, toes in the sand, riding atv's, hiking, watching for shooting stars at night, napping in a hammock, throwing bean bags, volleyball, and on and on. I don't drink a lot - a couple here and there - but I know how to have fun without pouring them down, so the bar scene is not one of my first choices - though i can be talked into going out dancing. I prefer to get out for a nice meal or for a yard party in the evening. I can enjoy a social setting, or a more secluded situation - as long as we can be laughing. I can BBQ pretty well, and I do alright in the kitchen too (several people have told me that my own chocolate chip cookie recipe is the best they've ever had).
I do put in more than 40 hours Monday through Friday, but I always keep some enjoyment time free. I have a close family, and some great friends, so there always seems to be something going on. I do make sure to get in my quiet time too, it keeps me balanced.
I am also one of the most loyal, caring, trustworthy and dependable men that you are likely to meet. I really am a good guy (all my friends told me to say that - I'm too modest to say such things about myself).
About the person I'm looking for. I like someone who can make me smile with her eyes. I don't care what color your eyes or your hair are, I just care if your eyes can make me smile. And speaking of physical attributes, I keep myself in pretty good shape, and am attracted to women who do also. Though I prefer the cute girl who would rather use her time to plan a fun evening as opposed to the hot chick who needs to create a masterpiece doing her makeup.
So there's a little about me and a little about what I'm looking for. I realize that finding the right person is challenging, and there is no shortcut. I am hoping to ultimately find a true partner for the rest of my life, but getting to know who someone is an exciting adventure in itself.
