Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I've been off of this site for a while and a few things have
changed in that time. I am divorced as of June, 2014. This comes
after a three year separation. If you don't date recently divorced
guys, thank you for stopping by.
As for my religious beliefs ... I was a baptized and confirmed
Catholic in my youth and attended Catholic elementary school for a
few years. I turned my back on the Catholic church while in high
school and never looked back. My ex wife is Lutheran and we did
attend a Lutheran church while we were married, but I never became
a believer. I was introduced to Buddhist philosophy in 2012. I have
found that mediation and talks by Buddhist monastics are able to
fill my spiritual needs better than any Judeo-Christian teachings.
If you think I am godless heathen who will burn in hell, well you
have a nice day, too. You can stop reading right here.
I've done some domestic and international traveling with a previous
employer. It has satisfied my needs to explore the world and I have
no longings to do any more traveling. Some day or weekend getaways
to nearby areas with the right person are a possibility. If you're
looking for someone to share an adventure of checking out the shops
in small villages in Spain, I am not your guy.
As for the type of woman I am looking for ... In the words of Fritz
Perls, "I do my thing and you do your thing. I am not in this world
to live up to your expectations and you are not in this world to
live up to mine. You are you and I am I. And if by chance we find
each other, it's beautiful. If not, it can't be helped." I am not
here to find a wife, but am open to the possibility that a
friendship I find here or somewhere else could turn into a long
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Keeping an upbeat outlook on my life and not looking at divorce as
an end but as a new beginning. As writer Elbert Hubbard said, “Do
not take life too seriously. You will never get out of it alive.”
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Not taking friendships lightly
Keeping a secret
Keeping a cool head in a crisis

I am not a big book reader but will go through a book in a few days
if it catches my interest.
Not that much coming out of Hollywood has caught my attention
enough to make me want to go out to a movie these days.
I listen mostly to pop and rock music from the 60's and 70's as
well as a bit of 50's , 80's 90's and today’s music. My car radio
is usually tuned to WDRV-FM or WBBM-AM if I don't have my MP3
I am a meat and potatoes kind of guy but enjoy an occasional
vegetarian or seafood meal. A hearty home cooked meal prepared with
a large dash of TLC beats a fancy restaurant meal, hands down.
