Normally, I really enjoy talking, or typing, as the case may be, but this time I think I'll make it shorter on the chance that someone will actually read it :P
Ok, here goes. I'm a single dad to an AMAZING 14 year old girl, who at the time of me writing this is lucky enough to be visiting Paris, France. I'm envious!
I'm divorced and have been for 5+ years, not my choice, but thankful in the end. It was definitely for the best. There is little point in remaining in a relationship that you are unhappy in, I guess I just didn't realize I was unhappy then.
I just bought a house here in Midland, which means that for the next four years at least, I'll be staying in town. I moved back here a year ago from Texas, and really missed being down south, but this is where I was raised, and I'm not allowed to take my daughter out of the state, so, two good reasons to stay I guess.
About me... I am a driver by trade, I used to drive semi's in the oil fields of Texas, but I'm sort of "retired". Not for any physical or mental (lol!) reasons, but by choice. 15 - 18 hour days for 5 years was enough. Now it's time to focus on what is important, namely my daughter, and finding someone who I can share my life with.
I'm a bigger guy, 6 foot +, and on the heavier side, though I like to think I carry my weight pretty well. No sausage fingers here!! I'm 38 in November, but feel like a 20 year old sometimes. I love going out to see movies, go camping, love to go to the beach (Seriously, prefer the ocean by far, but still love the great lakes) and go on all kinds of adventures. I don't like sitting around if it can be avoided, but with that said, spending an evening in cuddling with someone sounds like a wonderful way to pass the time :) I love going on long walks... the city forest in Midland is actually one of my favorite places to head out to for a hike.
I like to think of myself as being at least somewhat intelligent (which spell checker just told me I misspelled, oops, correct now!) and like to have good conversations on all kinds of topics, but sometimes it's just so much more fun to be a little silly and I try to make people laugh when I can!
So, what/who I am looking for...
I like a woman who can take care of herself, but still loves to be around the person she is with. I have a lot of respect for those who take care of themselves, both physically and otherwise. I would love to meet someone who has at least some of the same interests as me and who would be willing to accept my daughter and treat her kindly.
So with all that said, if you're still interested in having a conversation, or getting to know me, please do write. I'd be happy to reply!
