My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
How are you doing?

I am so ready to actively look for that special someone. I tried marrying someone to complete me . . . that didn't work well. So since our break up four plus year ago, I have worked on 'completing' myself . . . that is now a silly concept to me. I love who I am now, ever evolving and enjoying the journey both inside and out. So I am looking for someone like me, someone that 'fits' that we can relate to each other on deep level because we understand each other.

So who am I? That is a complex question, one, I admit, I am still trying to fully understand, bit of a moving target to boot. First and foremost I am a dad. I love and totally enjoy the responsibility of raising resilient, happy children. Most agree that I am not a 'typical guy' what ever that is? Hmmm I tend to see the world slightly, and I think, wonderfully different than most others. Big fan of acceptance, honour, understanding, the fact that all truth is pretty much subjective, fear being the path to life. I have pretty much conquered most fears, fear has been a long time nemesis, my new nemesis is gravity, or grrrrrrrrravity as I call it. Sigh, but any self description is an exercise in folly, so I guess . . . I guess read my questions and comments and if you feel a kindred soul there, then perhaps we should talk and see.

Having said that, being a voracious reader, I find myself a bit torn about reading the questions on this site, as it strips a lot of the mystery away, and makes those initial moments less enchanting as one discovers a new person as so much can be reveled.

I am a goal setter and achiever. In fact of the 100 most popular goals on I have so far done 91 of them. Some of my plans for the future are: to open another business, continue my journey back to fitness, visit my new cousin in Australia, see the Northern Lights and to burst into song in public like in a musical.

So I suppose if we are and 75% or higher match, we should just meet and be done with all the consternation and gate keeping that goes on here. What do you think?

I enjoy planning dates, and giving surprises. Having said that, being a parent and a boss, it’s also a treat to give up control from time to time.

May Cupid's aim be true.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am activity raising my three kids, (Boys 13 & 10 girl of 7) and wrapping up operations on my business of 18 years, finalizing my divorce, and getting my mom moved into a Sr. Residence. Then a 'break' before my next big business adventure. I am up for just about anything. I enjoy: swimming; hiking; going out for dinner; going to plays or concerts; traveling; home renovation; witty banter . . . so much more, there isn't too many things I'll say 'no' to.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Quite a few things including modesty.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My smile, my confidence and my, blush, intelligence. I have been told by many, in many different words, that I am an atypical male. I like to think of myself as highly adaptable. My emotional poop is in a group. People often use the word 'comfortable' when in my presence. Oh, I also get told, 'I should write a book' way too often.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Wow, where do I start?
Books (I read between 80 and 110 a year) so we can talk about that.

Movies: I know movies very well, favourites: Babe; Life is Beautiful; Love Me if You Dare; Avatar; The Family Man; Parenthood; Across the Universe; Mamma Mia.

Music: Like most people just about anything. Can't listen to cacophonous metal or twangy country music. I like new songs.

Shows: I like to go out to concerts, musicals, live theatre, sporting events.

As for TV: Discovery Channel, National Geographic Channel, Survivor (can't seem to quit it), True Blood, Newsroom, Game of Thrones (LOVE HB0) Big Bang Theory and SNL (been watching that for 25 years). Ideally I had someone around to do things with instead of watching TV but until then . . .

Food: I could live on red wine, dark chocolate and cheese. But love so many other dishes. I love to cook, but not much so when cooking for myself. In restaurants I almost always order things I haven't tried before.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Well a these are a few of my favourite things:
-My friends and family and the phone that connects me to them
-The internet (information sponge's ultimate tool)
-Daily (at least) showers
-My tools - I like to create things
-Art - beauty in all it's forms
Technically six but oh so much more.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Everything! Usually within the first hour of meeting me people say, 'you think a lot,' or something along those lines. I find this a little funny, because my best thinking happens when I am actively not thinking.

I guess that may not be that helpful so: Human nature, the bright side, what's for dinner, sports, words and meanings, the nature of beauty, the lives of the people I care about, being genuine and honoring myself. Plus whatever happens to catching my interest at the moment.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I work Friday nights, but that is fun. I'd like to have someone who I can go out with after work. Head into town, rollerblade around the seawall in the moonlight. Hit up Hamburger Marys afterward. Hike up a mountain to a waterfall under the stars. Night owls experience the amazing world more privately.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am one of the most open people you will ever meet. I think secrets are kinda silly, but you can totally trust me with them.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are alive. I like messages, would love to hear from you, honestly. No pressure it's just a message on a dating site, not a big deal at all. I will respond, it's the only civil thing to do.
