Ok, now that that's out of the way, the truth. Well, that kinda is the truth for the moment. Just wrapping up the sale of a lovely house. The buyer came out of nowhere and wanted to close quickly. I wanted to be out before winter hit, so I jumped. Sadly, there's not a lot on the market this time of year that appeals to me, so rather than make a compromise, I took the gracious offer from my parents to put me and the kid up for a month or six til I the right place comes on the market. I know they're gonna appreciate the home cooked meals. :^D
So now, about me. How do I do this... How do I sell myself to you in a few paragraphs, without coming off as arrogant or conceited? If I said I was everything you've been looking for, I wouldn't be the first guy saying that on their profile. I wouldn't be the second, or the hundredth, or the thousandth. So, how do I set myself apart from those profiles? Easy. I don’t. You’re going to have to find out for yourself. Are you ready to take a chance?
So who am I?
I consider myself a lucky guy, but not for things that have magically happened to me. Luck favors the prepared mind, and I've had great success at creating my own luck whenever I need it. I’m optimistic – I’m told to a fault, but it hasn't failed me yet. I’m active and adventurous. I like to keep busy – biking, kayaking, hiking, camping, and if necessary, or if I feel like I’m falling behind a little bit, I’ll even spend time at the gym. I love to laugh and be around others with a similar live and let live kind of outlook. But most importantly, I am a proud father to the awesomest (That’s a word, spell check. Don’t mock me with that red squiggly.) ten year old son I could imagine.
I spent a good portion of my adult life married, but that's in the past now, and far enough back that the drama is done. I'm totally monogamous by nature. I've had some great relationships, I've had disasters and I've spent time on my own. What I've realized, however, is that I’m happiest when I’m sharing my life with the right person. At the same time, I know that I’m happier on my own than settling for someone that is not right for me. My life is quite full and fulfilling right now, and it’s only getting better. If it’s me and my son for the next few years, that’s fine, but I’m here because I’m pretty sure the right woman is on here somewhere too – probably wondering what she’s doing on this site, much like I am.
So who are you?
Well, if you’re the one I’m looking for, you’re probably a lot like me. You’re optimistic. You don’t shy away from an adventure. You're intelligent. Maybe even in a way that intimidates most men. I'm not most men. Not at all. You've got a great sense of humor and can dish it out as well as take it. You love to explore – whether it’s a trail you've never noticed in your own home town, a road trip or traveling to another country. You are not afraid of public displays of affection, given or received. You’re a little feisty, and can go from hiking boots to an evening gown on a moment’s notice. Your beauty outside is put to shame by your beauty inside. And you’re ready to take a chance that may change your life forever.
Sound like you? If so, you know what to do next.
