Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am really excited to start on the next stage of my life and find
that special someone.
I have been told by others that I am a kind-hearted and caring
person. I am self-assured, but not afraid to show emotion. I get
along well with others, and respectful of others ideas and
thoughts. I enjoy great conversations on just about any issue, as
my interests are varied. I have been told that I am good listener,
which can be unusual...for a guy. :) I consider myself humble, but
have to talk about myself here. Not very humble.
Just like everyone, I enjoy a good laugh and can be both witty
(with a touch of sarcasm, but not in a hurtful way) and serious. I
am affectionate, but not smothering. I consider myself flexible,
and understand the need for my partner to have your own friends and
interests, but if you prefer it was just us, I am certainly fine
with that too.
I have two great kids. One off to college, and the other in junior
I am hoping to meet some great people here to spend some fun times
together with the ultimate goal of a long term one person
relationship. I look forward to sharing time together whether that
is cooking a meal together with a glass of wine, going out to a
community event, a day trip to nearby town or city, or an extended
vacation to the lake, mountains, or oceans. I have relatives in
Colorado, and always love going to the mountains there. I am not a
big bar scene person, but I am willing to go to spend time with
friends or someone special.
I am varied in my interests, because I enjoy learning new things. I
enjoy learning about other cultures. I like to visit historical
sites, state parks, the bluff country along the Mississippi River.
(I spent part of my childhood there.) I also enjoy the Duluth area
and the North Shore, and have a passion for visiting lighthouses. I
enjoy experiencing new places, and especially going outdoors on
hikes or walks and seeing the beauty and quiet of landscape, plants
and animals. I enjoy trying new foods, especially ethnic foods. I
would like to get back into golf but could use a coach.
I try to volunteer in the community to give back. I especially like
to volunteer with organizations that make an impact on young
I listen to a wide variety of music, except maybe "rap." Everything
from Rascal Flatts to Shinedown. I read many different genres of
books and articles.
I wish you well in your search for that someone special.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Hoping to find that special someone that I can share new
experiences, everyday activities, and a future together with love,
compassion, and an open ear.
I have a great career, and two wonderful kids who are the center
point of my life, but have room for others to share an equal place.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
seeking others perspectives and being that person people enjoy
talking with. I am empathetic to others, and show civility often.
You will find me often holding the doors open for others, using
please and thank you. I know, those are little things, but they are
so rare at times these days.
The first things people usually notice about me

When you first meet me you will see I am large framed man. I am
6'02" and have wide shoulders. It can be imposing from what others
have told me. But people also have said, "Yeah, you may be big on
the outside, but you are soft and gooey on the inside." Which is
true, I am a kind person, but strong, and always have my loved ones

I have not been a major movie watcher in the last view years,
unless it was a movie with the kids. It has been more about being
busy at not having the time, rather than not enjoying moves. I am
open to anything.
I read often, whether it be books, magazines or articles. The book
I just finished was Until Tuesday. It was about an Iraqi War
Veteran, and how his golden retriever service dog, Tuesday, helped
overcome his PTSD.
I love to try new foods. I grew up in a home where mom was
constantly trying new recipes, many that were ethnic.
The six things I could never do without

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I am a planner and goal driven. Not to say I am that I can be
spontaneous. I can, but often spend time planning next steps on
projects, whether that is on things related to home projects,
career projects, family projects, or future fun events.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Off to a community event, sports activity, coffee shop with
friends, glass of wine with others, spending time with my children,
or taking a early evening walk with our dog. I am not a big bar
person, but not opposed to spending time at one with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I am willing to admit a lot of things, but not here. I am very open
person, almost to a fault some times.

your embarrassing moments, failures, and life journeys and lessons.
We all have them.
