My self-summary
I'm a positive minded / glass-is-half-full person. I've got a good sense of humor, and enjoy hitting comedy shows. I enjoy cooking and fine dining, and have attended several wine tastings. I like to watch movies, listen to music, play billiards, go hiking and play golf. While I don't watch a lot of television, I do enjoy watching NFL games on Sundays in the Fall. In the warm weather months, I enjoy participating in autocross events with my summer car (2004 Mustang Cobra). I have participated in on-track events, too.

I really enjoy traveling. I've visited: Hawaii, Alaska, Australia, Mexico, and Europe (Germany, Italy, France, Spain, and Great Britain), to name a few.

I've got a nephew and a niece who I enjoy spending time with.

While growing up, my parents always "gave back" to their community. I'm in a good place, financially, and I sponsor two children through World Vision. I first sponsored Isaac, of Zambia. After a year, I started sponsoring a second child - Sofia of Ecuador. I typically send them cards and gifts for their birthdays and have other correspondence with them (e.g., Christmas cards; I receive progress reports on how each one is doing) during the year, too.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm in a billiards league, that I think has three or four sessions per year. I also am in a golf league, April through August.
I’m really good at
Really good?!? I am pretty good at shooting billiards, I'm very organized, I'm good with personal computers / most electronics.
The first things people usually notice about me
I've got blueish-green eyes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I enjoy going to the movies. I like pretty much anything, but really like science fiction (Matrix), Adventure (Indiana Jones), and dramas (Million Dollar Baby). I like music a lot. I'm pretty open to music - except for rap and probably most country music. I own probably .. 350 compact discs? My favorite band is Led Zeppelin. I also like Melissa Etheridge, John Mellencamp, Collective Soul, Garbage, and Aerosmith, to name a few.

Authors: Stephen King, Tom Clancy, Scott Turow, Michael Crichton.

Food: Steak, Thai, Italian, pizza, wings, roast beef, BBQ. Not a big fan of seafood - only shrimp and lobster.

I don't watch a lot of TV. I've never seen a reality TV program.
The six things I could never do without
1. Family and friends.
2. My cars.
3. My personal computer.
4. Fine food and wine.
5. Socializing with people during golf and billiard league play.
6. Intimacy.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Hmmmm - I usually follow NFL-news, and what the financial markets are doing. Does that count?
On a typical Friday night I am
Grabbing take-out food and relaxing with either a movie or seeing a TV-program on-line.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I do NOT have a Facebook, MySpace or Google-Plus profile.
You should message me if
I'm looking for a woman that takes care of herself, and is confident in her appearance. I understand that we all need to put in some extra time at work on occasion, but I'm seeking a woman who has balance in her life. If I'm in a relationship, I'd like to see my partner more than once a week, for a half day on the weekends. Oh - I do not think I could be with a woman long-term that has a vegan or vegetarian diet. Oh - I am not on the site to make pen pals. After e-mailing back and forth a few times and finding out more about a woman beyond her profile, I typically ask for a phone number. I'm on the site to meet women for dates. If you do not feel comfortable giving out your phone number after three or four e-mail exchanges, or if you are anxious about meeting (in a public place), then please pass me by.
