Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
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
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
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
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
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
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
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
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
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I love fantasy, action, drama, sci fi and the occasional romanic
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
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My faith, my family, my ipad, my laptop, my music and my frequent
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
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
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
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I still play with toys (well mostly board games).
