My self-summary
How can I get her attention? I'm standing in the middle of the crowd, jumping up and down, waving my arms like a madman and yelling at the top of my lungs "HEY!!! OVER HERE!!!"

Wait a minute... She's looking my way! She sees me! OK...Mark. Don't blow it now. Give her "The Eyes"

No... No... That wasn’t a tic or a twitch! That was a sultry stare mixed with a wink! Now she just looks confused and a little scared!

Wave a little more, keep her interested! Good thing I'm tall. I'm going to push my way through the crowd towards her. Pardon me. Excuse me. Coming through. Hey! Don't look at him! Keep looking at me! She's moving towards me too! This is good! What do I say? How can I catch her heart now that I've caught her eye? This is hard work!

It's OK. I'm ready for it.

What will she want to know about me? Does she care that I'm a hopelessly romantic man who will sing Elvis and Sinatra to her? I can't sing, but I hope she doesn't care. Will she go to Disneyland with me? To church with me? Is she spontaneous enough to hop in the car and drive up the coast for lunch and wine tasting with the radio blasting some classic rock and country? Does her passport have some empty pages we can fill together? If I cook something new will she try it, even if it look's funny? What will she do if we are walking together and I stop just to gather her in my arms and share this moment?

She's getting closer. I can see her a little clearer now.

Wow! She's gorgeous! She looks confident and compassionate. Her eyes tell me a lot. They’re bright like she is. She obviously takes care of herself. That's good; because I'm gonna want to be with her for a long time. She's smiling! That lights up the room! I bet she's funny, just like me. We'll make each other laugh. She's closer now. We're almost close enough to...

I reach out to her and take her hand. It's soft and warm, just like her. I'm finally close enough to look into her eyes... and...

I'm lost there.

What I’m doing with my life
I work for a cruise line and it's a very fun job. Plus I get to travel which I love to do. I bought the house I was raised in a few years ago and am in process of renovating it. I also have a tent trailer as I love camping and exploring. Ready for a quick weekend away?
I’m really good at
Making the woman in my life feel special and valued. Using my imagination. Writing, photography or building something. Listening to another persons concerns and finding a good solution.
The first things people usually notice about me
The ease of my smile and a quirky sense of humor. Oh... And that I'm tall
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
This is hard to narrow down, but for you? I'll try.
Movies (in no order): Rocky, Robin Hood (1939), Saving Private Ryan, Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court (Bing Crosby), Continental Divide, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, The Music Man (Robert Preston), How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying

Books: I enjoy Clive Cussler, Harry Turtledove, John Birmingham, S.M. Stirling, anyone who can tell a great story.
"Wind in the Willows" by Kenneth Grahame. All time favorite book! Best read aloud with you curled up beside me.

Random: Hugs that last a long while. A good steak. Building something. Rain. The color blue. The Rams when they win! Anything that stimulates my mind!
The six things I could never do without
Well... You, to begin with.
My close friends and family
Special moments
A really good book
A big cup of coffee in the morning
The love of a good woman
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How much longer I'm gonna be on this site before I find YOU!
On a typical Friday night I am
Dinner or a movie with friends, relaxing at home or on a very promising first date!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
There is one song that I’ve always wanted a woman to sing to me. It makes no difference to me if she can sing or not. It’s not about her voice or talents. It’s about the song and the emotion she puts into it.

If she sings it to me, she’ll have my heart forever.
You should message me if
Here is a quote that I love from a song by Rascal Flats:

At last I can see life has been patiently waiting for me
And I know there’s no guarantee, but I'm not alone
There comes a time in everyone's life
When all you can see are the years passing by
And I have made up my mind that those days are gone

If you agree... reach out to me.
