Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi there. Thanks for looking at my profile. You may have seen me
here before. I had to update this and loose the silly user name I
I am 48 and have been divorced for 3 1/2 years. I have twin sons
who are 21 years old. I was married for 21 years and put a lot into
a bad marriage, mostly for the boys.
My career as a heavy duty diesel (truck) mechanic also consumed a
lot of my time. But after 27 years with the trucking industry, I
now am a mechanic for a school bus company. This proved to be a
great move as it is a much less stressful job. And my new work
schedule does not interfere with my personal time like the 24/7
The marriage, spending time with my sons and work has kept me from
having much of a social life. But, now with the marriage behind me,
the boys more independent, a career change and a new lease on life
I am ready to start living again. It is time to rediscover some of
the things I used to enjoy such as fishing, camping and enjoying a
night out. I am hoping to find someone to share these things
I have just started to try dating again. It is the first time since
the divorce. No, I was NOT hung up on my ex. There were some
troublesome issues in my life that needed to be dealt with. I first
created a profile first about two and a half years ago, but never
responded to contacts until recently. Maybe that was best as I got
a lot of things behind me first.
I could be best described as “old fashioned”. Most of my morals and
beliefs are old school. I enjoy celebrating the holidays and family
functions. I have a good sense of humor. Sometimes my joking can be
subtle, but I try to avoid sarcasm.
I am honest and trustworthy.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Keeping my life going in a positive direction. I can see things
getting better with each day.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Cooking on the grill. I cook on charcoal all year long. Anything
from hamburgers to whole turkey. And pizza, too.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Probably my mustache. Is it time for it to go? Are the 80's over
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I am not an avid book/novel reader. "Lines and Shadows" by Joseph
Wambaugh is one of my favorites. Movies; "Airplane", " A Christmas
Story", "Boondock Saints", "The Rat Pack". Music, classic rock of
all sorts - Boston, Styx, Supertramp and of course, Led Zeppelin.
And for food; steak. On the grill, of course.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My bothers and sisters
A place to call home
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The past. The events that got me to where I am now. But, I am
learning to let that go and I am spending more time thinking about
where my life is going and how to make the trip better.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Grocery shopping, cleaning and resting. I do have to start living a
singles life again, but man, am I out of practice.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I will share anything with someone I trust.
