Hi. I've been single for 8 years. I have 3 daughters. My youngest is 23 and lives with me (I don't know why because I am a pain in the ass) . I work as a computer programmer and enjoy what I do. I am overworked and under paid (for the time being) but that will change soon enough. I like to laugh, make others laugh, and keep everyone around me happy. I tend to talk a lot, and say exactly what's on my mind, sometimes without realizing that others are not in on my thought process. Yep, I am good for some laughs... or some blank stares. I am working on that.
I am looking for my soul mate. Someone to have fun, and enjoy the rest of my life with. I am loyal and protective to a fault, affectionate, passionate and honest.
I very much enjoy history... Visiting old forts, museums. Watching documentaries on the history channel. I also like comedy and going to comedy clubs is always fun. I enjoy camping, the mountains and the beach.
What I’m doing with my life
I've just recently reinvented myself. Worked in education for the last 20 years, but decided to make a change so I went back to school, then changed jobs.
I’m really good at
Cooking and cleaning up after myself... Yeah really Lol. But even better at fiixing things. Working on projects around the house. Fixing cars, fixing computers, fixing appliances. It drives me nuts when things don't work the way they are supposed to. So... Yep - I'm pretty good at fixing things.
The first things people usually notice about me
I shave my head, so probably that.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Other than technical manuals and such, I haven't read a book in a LONG time. But I do read the news on MSNBC and Yahoo almost every day. I especially enjoy the science and technology sections.
Music: Some old, some newer... Peter Gabriel, Phil Collins, Genesis, U2, Pink Floyd, Coldplay, Supertramp, Foreigner, Audioslave... the list gets long and no-one reads these lists anyway. Lets just say that I like all music except rap. I do not like rap...
Movies/TV: I have lots of favorite movies. Too many to name. Loved Breaking Bad. Now my favorites are "The Walking Dead", 'Orange, the New Black' and "Better Call Saul". Big Bang Theory and Modern Family are my current daily favorites. I can't get enough of "Alaska: The Last Frontier", 'How it's made', anything to do with history or science.
Food: I had a bad experience with guacamole once so I stay away from that. I am not a big fan of seafood, but I like shrimp, lobster and tuna fish sandwiches (LOL). Love a well done steak, chicken... Mmmm... Hot wings, blue cheese and celery... and turkey, but am especially susceptible to tryptophan. So I am lots of fun for my family at Thanksgiving. They have pictures...
The six things I could never do without
1. My daughters.
2. My job - gotta pay the bills and be able to afford the other five things.
3. My Car
4. My Harley
5. Coffee. The darker the better. Black, no sugar. If you asked me this question in the morning, coffee would be first on this list.
6. My technology... computer, smart phone, internet.
7. More coffee
Yes, I know that is 8 things. I guess that makes me needy.
Ok... Number 9... Have to add my reading glasses to the list... Dammit.
So, so needy...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I am a guy. I don't think.
On a typical Friday night I am
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Uhmmmm... Nah! Gotta know you first.
You should message me if
If you think we would enjoy each other. If, like me, you are loyal to a fault, love the outdoors, and think that camping in a tent on the beach or in the woods, off the back of a motorcycle sounds awesome.
