My self-summary
I am a pretty genuine person. I don't try too hard and I am not fake. I have learned to be content with life and choose to still believe and have faith in all the things that give our lives meaning.
I am at the point in my life where I am who I am. I have been hurt but I am not bitter. I have loved and lost but I am prepared to love again. Even if it never happens I am glad that it happened the times that it did and I am OK with living the rest of my life just making good friends, meeting good people and sharing my life with all those willing to take this journey with me.

That being said. If you know me u know all about me.

I have been a Christian for a very long time and suppose I always will be; I have lived my life righteously with no regrets and no wistful desires to have sinned sins that I have not sinned; I have only wished that those sins I still account myself guilty of, I could not.

Honestly I must say even though I am 46 I still have no idea what women want. It's unfortunate really because all most men want is a best friend. I know you hear of guys who cannot commit but you must understand it is the only way to keep from being hurt. Something some men don't deal with so well. I suppose I am the exception or the sucker because when I meet a woman I care about, I care deeply...and true. It has brought me happiness and then inevitably, it seems, pain. But I am too old now to be any other way.
What I’m doing with my life
Besides spending time with my kids I try to stay busy. I travel a lot and get out as much as I can. I would still consider myself a homebody but I am just at a different place in my life at this time.

At this point in my life I am really looking for someone to hang out with. To talk to and share some things. Hopefully something fun. If it leads to something more serious that would be nice but if it doesn't hopefully I will have made a friend.

I am looking for a woman who is genuine. I am not intimidated by success but I am also not put off by femininity. I like a woman who is comfortable enough to be a lady or even act girlie when it strikes her fancy yet deep enough to be secure and make her own life as well as sharing mine

I choose the profile name brokenreed from the Bible verse Isaiah 42:3 "A bruised reed he shall not break; and the smoking flax he shall not quench..."

I am that bruised reed but by God's grace all I have went through did not break me and my heart has not been quenched.
I’m really good at
Laughing; joking; being positive; conversing and problem solving.
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile. My intelligence. My wit and my generosity. My bad jokes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love fantasy, action, drama, sci fi and the occasional romanic comedy.

Favorite movies, LOTR, Excalibur, GOT, Walking Dead, Breaking Bad, "I Can Do Bad All By Myself" (well I really just like the title of that movie), "Not Easily Broken", "Waiting To Exhale", "The Descendants". Of course most action movies.
The six things I could never do without
My faith, my family, my ipad, my laptop, my music and my frequent flyer miles!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
People and relationships. The meaning of life and what gives it worth. I believe in a life well lived with integrity and honor whether or not other people acknowledge you for it or not. I also believe in forgiveness and second chances without which we all would be damaged goods. Of course there is a point where even to forgive no longer merits a second "second chance" but I believe your heart will tell you when you've reached that point with a person. You just have to be willing to listen and act when it does.

I love to encourage people and believe that I can be just the person that convinces that someone to hold on one more day no matter how bad its gotten or how bad it hurts. So I encourage people when I can. Even online I will just send a person a random compliment or smile or flirt. If you get one of these please do not feel obligated to reply. Of course a reply would be nice (especially a Thank You) but it is sincere and not [always] meant to start up a conversation or lead to something more.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out of town!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I still play with toys (well mostly board games).
You should message me if
You want to say Hi.
