I have enjoyed learning new life-hacking skills such as cooking from scratch and roasting my own coffee. YouTube is one of the greatest inventions ever: I have learned how to drive a Bobcat, paint trim, and make a tiramisu. My son and I recently constructed a potato cannon from PVC pipe, BBQ sparker, and hairspray--it's really impressive!
Chemistry, sparks, are important. My preference is to meet as soon as possible. A meeting at a cafe, park bench, the mall, is perfect for that. I'm always excited to meet a date. If it's not working between us, it's OK say thank you and leave. Other than politeness, we don't owe each other anything.
If we choose to date I enjoy going out on the town as much as anyone, to a point. I also like fun experiences where we are doing something together: a trip to the grocery store followed by preparing a meal together. Doing a simple house project. Enjoying a bottle of wine and making out on the couch because we can't help ourselves. Now that's a fun date! ;-)
I'm attracted to women who are confident, in good physical shape, possess an intellectual curiosity, and a healthy suspiciousness of the status quo. A person who is thoughtful, kind, a joy to be around.
I have had more diverse life experiences than many. I've experienced a lot, I've seen a lot. I've been a soldier, a professional business writer, political organizer, a registered nurse. I've joined start-ups and big corporations to get rich--neither strategy worked out as planned. I've taken time away from work to pursue various interests--blogging, yoga, etc. My life could be described in a lot of ways; sheltered and boring isn't among them.
In retrospect I wasn't a great husband or partner in my marriage. I was a jerk. I can see it now. I try to learn from my mistakes. I like to think I'd do better the next time.
I suck at keeping house. I'm a bachelor and I take advantage of it. I follow my interests and projects--keeping house isn't a priority. Until it is. Then I'll get into a I-can't-stand-it-anymore frenzy, like when I'm expecting a special someone over for company ;-), and then I'll whip it all back into shape. Only to start all over again. I figure this practice keeps me interesting... ;-) that's my story and I'm sticking to it!
I want to meet women who, like me, are ready, willing, and open to the possibility of falling in love, finding their life partner.
