Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Ok! Time to change things yet again.
A lot has happened recently. I took a big hit on the health side of
things when I found out I have type 2 diabetes. It was a pretty
hard blow, but I'm doing pretty good at changing how I live to go
with it. I've lost close to 50 pounds which I'm extremely proud of,
and I quit drinking sodas and, well, ok I'll be honest, I haven't
completely given up snacking or chinese, but cmon, I'm not
Also pretty excited to have my bike now, and love to get out and
ride. I'd love to find someone who'd like to jump on the back of my
bike, hold on tight and go for a fun ride in the country or
anywhere for that matter.
I'm a dad! Ok, I suppose I shouldn't have used an exclamation point
as she's 15 now, so it's not really a surprise anymore, but
sometimes it still feels like it :D She's an amazing kid and I
would hope you'd think so too if you get the chance to meet
I'm 38 going on 21, or so it feels. I am not your typical
"adult"... I love amusement parks, going on picnics, playing video
games and watching pretty much any kind of movie you can think of
(other than most dramas, at least have a LITTLE action, ok?)
I am self employed and love it, though the money could be a little
better if I'm being honest here. I do web design and buy and sell
online. I am satisfied with what I have, but don't expect to buy
that Porche 959 I've been wanting, at least not any time in the
foreseeable future lol :D But it's great to be able to be home when
my daughter comes back from school, and being able to set your own
hours is a real perk for sure.
I'm a massive music lover, most classic rock and 80's (oh wait,
80's is considered classic rock now, when the hell did that
happen?!) The only music I am not a fan of really is rap and heavy
I love to cook and bake which definitely doesn't go well with my
diabetes (the homemade cinnamon rolls were probably not the best
idea this weekend... sigh) but it is something I am pretty good
My daughter and I both love camping (Notice I didn't say RV'ing -
we rough it lol) and go when we can, and with a sister in the UP,
we get to kill two birds with one stone. I like to fish, but I
don't hunt - I just can't bring myself to shoot bambi. I love to go
quadding if I can find someone who has one I can borrow
So yeah, there's a lot more to me than that, but I think this has
gotten pretty long as is, so if you think the above was at least
mildly entertaining and / or interesting and would like to know
more, please do write. I have been told often that I'm pretty easy
to talk to and I always love talking to people!
All the best and happy fishing!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm trying my best to enjoy it. I just got a house which I am
fixing up, it's an old farmhouse in the middle of downtown Midland,
but it's nice, or will be soon!
I'm planning a few things for the future, but plans can and do
change. When my daughter goes to college, IF I am still single, I
plan on going to Phuket Thailand to teach English as a second
I'm trying to start my own business, but with everything that is
happening at the moment, it's kind of on hold. We'll see what
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I am good at a few things.
I am a photographer, I love it and I try my best to get a great
I give, or so I have been told, the best massages :D
I am pretty good at web designing.
I am GREAT at talking... too much most would say lol
I am even better at listening. People usually open up to me. I love
to sit and listen to people tell me all about their lives and their
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have been told I have nice hair?? I don't know, like most men,
the entire concept of hair kind of eludes me. It's there. Ok.
Other than that, people generally comment on my size - I am a bit
tall at 6'1, and I'm not a toothpick, though I have lost a lot of
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Hmm... My favorite books are pretty much anything by Dean Koontz,
Stephen King, George RR Martin, R.A. Salvatore, Ann Rice, Terry
Goodkind, Neil Gaiman and many, MANY others. Reading is another
passion of mine. Just haven't had much time to read lately.
I recently started watching Suits online and just now caught up
with the last episode. I am NOT a tv person, but man, that show is
amazing! Love all the characters, especially Lewis :D
Food is a whole different category - I am not going to get into a
big list, but trust me, if it's italian, french, chinese or German,
I'll eat it :D (except snails - eww. Just eww.)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A good companion, my daughter, my motorcycle, computer and
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Life in general, what I want to do, where I want to go, and who I
want to go with me :) I also think a lot about my daughter, and how
she is turning out, and how I hope she'll be when she's my age. I
think about a lot of stuff
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Right now, it's sitting at home for the most part most nights. I do
like to go shoot pool, and I'm pretty much up for anything, but
still looking for someone to do that stuff with. You know, it's
awkward being that single guy at the bar :)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I snore. I'm working on it though. (Gaw, I hope that's not a major
deal breaker lol!)
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you found my profile interesting and would like to possibly get
to know me a bit better, please do message me. I have to say
though, I am looking for someone who takes pride in themselves,
loves to laugh and have a good time and isn't stuck up or snooty.
Snooty people are boring, and no one likes boring. If you're a bit
of a geek, all the better :D
Who are you looking for?
