Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Who am I? From Chicago, educated in Boston (where I learned to be a
Mass-hole. LOL) First teaching job - Middle of nowhere on Navajo
Rez (where I humbled myself and learned about how this ancient way
of life exists in the 20th century). I'm a creative/ out-of-the-box
thinker: Around fellow teachers at work, I come off left of center;
with my artsy friends, I come off conservative; and with my
daughter I let her be the creative one. I've been told that I am
cynical, arrogant, and snarky, with a raw sense of humor that will
have you falling over laughing. But at the same time, my years of
studying Buddhism and philosophy, makes me a deep thinker, who's
not too savvy with small talk.
Aside from being a bit old-fashioned, things that make me smile are
good craft beer, making pizza on the grill, growing vegetables in
the garden, and playing cards.
My 7 year old daughter is the priority in my life. Anyone with kids
understands, and why scheduling/dating over my time with her would
be a rare occurrence. She has been my 'assistant' when I've changed
my brakes, and when I built her a playhouse (hitting the same thumb
twice with a hammer LOL). In return, I've been invited to her
living room performances of plays and dance shows.
Who I'm looking for is someone that enjoys going to the symphony as
much Red Rocks. Someone who enjoys going to a Rockies game as much
as the Denver Art Museum. Someone who I can cook for, but will not
expect me to wait on her hand and foot. And of course someone who
will listen to stories about my daughter.
In the movie [u]Gran Torino[/u], there's a line that I believe can
happen for me. [i] "I got the best woman who was ever on this
planet to marry me. I worked at it. It was the best thing that ever
happened to me, hands down."[/i] I do believe she is out there...
the one who I'll let my daughter meet, the one I want to see when I
rise, and the one who I'll say is the best woman on this planet.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
It may sound funny, but I hope to find someone who has faults, who
is not perfect, and is not looking "to meet her match/soul partner"
or someone she meets "on all levels". I am not perfect, and do not
expect her to be that either.
I feel one of the sexiest traits of a woman is being a great mother
to your children. I want to hear stories of things you do, how you
laugh with, and how you enjoy your time with your child(ren). If we
meet up, you're most likely going to hear the same from me.
