Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
After the economic collapse I find myself outdated, under educated,
and over experienced. It came time to finish a three decade long
journey. I am now a year out from having my international business
degree! Between work from 8-4 and night classes from 5-10 I have
only spare time on the weekends. I have a couple of adult boys that
live with me while they finish their last year of college but the
empty nest is visible at the light near the end of the tunnel!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
My time recently has revolved around going to school, work and
helping my kids finish their schooling. The time is coming near
where it will be just me and I am preparing myself for that.
Additionally, I love my kids very much but there has always been
that feeling of needing companionship, which I have but on the back
burner for many years. It is exciting to know that the time is
close to be able to find that best friend again. Nothing to be in a
hurry about, so that gives me the opportunity to find the right one
and at a worse case, a new friend. Isn't that why we are all on
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I am the real life proof behind the saying "I'm a jack of all
trades and a master of none". I am good at almost everything but
not exceptional at just one thing. If I had to pick one thing I
guess it would be math. Sounds strange but I last took Calculus 2
in 1984 and am taking Calculus 3 this semester and having no
problems at it.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I look like I workout and lift weights all the time. Truth be known
I have always looked like that. Must be something genetic.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Right now the only books I read are textbooks (no favorites), I
loved Lincoln and enjoy historical event movies. I also enjoy
action and comedy and drama with a sprinkling in of
horror/suspense. TV I usually watch the history channel but am lost
without my weekly "Fringe" addiction. I like the off the wall shows
like Its Always Sunny in Philadelphia and when I do watch TV it is
something that is not on the major 3 networks. Music, I enjoy all
types except Rap and Scremo. I lean toward harder rock and indie
but will listen to blues, R&B, and country. It is hard to
explain to someone why I have Rammstein, Linkin Park, Adele and
Tony Bennett on my Ipod. Finally food. My favorites are Italian and
Mexican but will try about anything.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My morning cup of coffee, the love of my children and
grandchildren, my quest for knowledge (never let the mind go
stale), family and friends, the history channel2!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
... well saying I think about it a lot is inaccurate but I do think
about what phase three of life is going to be like Not the biblical
meaning but the phase when you have raised your kids and it is just
you. I have two boys living with me that are 22 and 21 and
finishing up college this year. Then it is just me and the dogs
they have brought home and left me with when they move out and
start their life.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
.. usually at home studying and doing homework. Mostly by choice
but usually have the ability to adjust on the fly.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have a phobia for snakes, alive or dead, tiny or small, caged or
loose, real, fake or on the tv or big screen ..... I have no love
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
... you have interest in finding out more. I am open and honest and
tell it like it is, good and bad. Not into playing the game of
showing all the great things about me and not mention the quirks.
Only fair to give the whole story!
