Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Happy Mother's day mothers! Depending on your kids ages, I hope you
have received a nice little hand drawn facimilie of adoration from
an adorable little adorer.
Currently "romantically unemployed" but open to the possibility of
gainful employment within the ranks of the Department of Romance.
Nice work if you can find it. Having said that, I don't think
anyone around our age needs to rush into anything so I get it. Time
and circumstances suggest we both have a full life already.
I just pulled the plug on my A list status, so I no longer know who
visits or likes me anymore. What a world!
I'm an active, fit guy but not an exercise fanatic. Have a car, yet
still cycle daily & pretty much year round, eat sensibly and
try very hard to take care of myself while balancing career, split
custody and all life's other fun (and sometimes not so fun)
I've grown somewhat weary of online dating but I still hold out for
the hope that there's someone out there that I can thrill and be
thrilled by. After spending almost 2 years here(on & off), I
feel the duration of my time on this site is limited.
Having said that, please don't feel you need to lie about your age,
height or weight or status. Or anything else for that matter. It's
very disheartening. We all feel like we did when we were younger
but people can see the truth within seconds of meeting. Then it's
just weird. This should be a chance to start fresh! Honesty IS the
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work in Tech. Computers, networks, pencil protectors, broken
glasses crudely repaired with tape. I stoke the machinery that
stokes the star making machinery behind the popular song. (Sorry
Single dad with split custody and loving my wonderful little(7
& 11)children. No matter what, they are my compass and my #1
reason for being and doing. But make no mistake, I need me some
adult time too! Nice to see you come, darling kiddies, and nice to
see you go.
Also spending way too much time running around picking up towels,
closing cupboards and doors and picking up my kids clothes..why are
they always inside out!!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I do really good things with fresh cod. And Kale. Together. And
anyone who thinks you can't pair whitefish with red wine is a damn
fool. There, I said it.
Painting my daughter's toenails. She says I'm better at it than my
ex (her mom). She might be playing me on that but I don't
Spelling. (I was a grade three spelling bee champ!)
Having owned a couple of old houses has made me overall a pretty
handy guy. Not so much a "build an extension" type but more like a
dude with a toolbelt who's not afraid to use it.

At this stage in my life, hopefully just that I'm single? :)

I don't really go out to movies much and recently gutted my
cable/phone/internet package. But I like being surprised and will
timeshift on my PVR. I was totally surprised recently by a movie
called "The descendants." I was not expecting such understated
power and beauty; visually, aurally and performance wise. Really
spoke to me on many levels. Caution: this movie may contain
Clooney.(Don't let that dissuade you..I offer a full money back
Rock, pop, Jazz, fusion. (Jazz is not dead, it just smells funny.)
Live concerts in smaller venues and intimate clubs. Recently
attended concerts over the last year: Richard Thompson, Emmy Lou

Unrepentant omnivore but love vegetarian food too. Then again, I
suppose the "omni" covers that..
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I think it's all been said before. I could list coffee, car, bike,
Sunday sleep-ins, etc but I'd like to think I'd triumph in the face
of such adversity, should I ever have to do without.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Love and hope and sex and dreams are still surviving on the

And kissing. I really miss kissing.

I kind of suck at keeping up conversations or interactions with
more than one person at a time on this online dating stuff. I know
that might sound lame but I think it comes from a good place. I
guess I'm just not...duplicitous? I don't know if that's the right
word but it's the first word that comes to mind.
I had a childhood fear of weeds. You know, those large leafed
monstrosities that kind of look like rhubarb.
I am a bit of a record nerd. I feel the same way about them as book
collectors must feel of first editions; Covetous.
I sometimes find the need to kiss my kids clothes while I fold
Not that long ago, the idea of online dating seemed..exciting.
These days, I just can't wait to put it all behind me.
