Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a single father of two kids that live with me. They are my
life. I enjoy spending any free time I get...wait, what's free
I like going out hiking, swimming, taking pictures and just hanging
out watching movies.
I also like to get in the car a drive with no particular place to
go and just discover everything this great state has to
I also would like to find someone that would like to go four
wheeling in the mountains.
I was born and raised in Portland, Oregon, and I still love to go
out there and visit the coast.
I tried skiing once, and fell more times than I could count. What
else is there to say about me?
I'm not really good at "selling" myself. I feel the best way to get
to know someone is spend some time and talk. You can learn things
by reading, but emails and text can only show so much. The is no
passion, no inflection, no way to read into what is being
I do smoke, but am trying to quit.
I like to go out, but I am also content just sitting on the couch,
snuggling up and watching a movie, or just reading.
I'm looking for someone to explore with, go out to dinner, maybe
catch a movie.
***Just to be clear*** I have two kids. The live with me FULL TIME.
During the summer, I get a little more free time, but my kids are
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Mostly working and taking care of my two kids. I am the rare single
father that has custody of his kids. They take up most of my time,
but I am looking for someone to spend some grown-up time with! This
is not code. I am not looking for a NSA or FWB. Ideally, I am
looking for friendship and maybe more.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
*Finding obscure places to take my Jeep
*Fixing things (cars, things around the house, etc)
*Being a dad
*Being a friend
*Waking up BEFORE my alarm clock goes off! Why?
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Physically - My eyes and my butt. Also, people like to tell me who
I look like. I've heard Garth Brooks, Bret Farve, Eric Estrada, and
most recently Mark Ruffalo. I don't see ANY of these, though.
Otherwise, that I am kind, giving and generous. I'm not a knight on
a white horse, but I am a knight I'm a black jeep.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Favorite books: Lord of the Rings is by far my favorite, but I also
enjoy reading Techno-thrillers, and books with action. I've also
started reading a bunch of classics. Nabokov, O. Henry and
Steinbeck. My book supplier recently got a kindle, so now I guess I
need to go out and start buying books myself.
Favorite Moves: The Lord of the Rings Trilogy, and Action, fantasy,
sci-fi, comedy...pretty much open to most movies
Favorite TV Shows: Ok, I like the Walking Dead (have not missed an
episode yet), Weeds, Psych, White Collar, Sherlock and then the
immature side likes American Dad, Family Guy, and the occasional
cartoon with the kids.
Music: My taste in music runs the gambit. My favorite style is
Classic Rock (Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd are amazing), but my
Grandfather was in the Oregon Symphony for over 40 years, and
through him I developed a love of all music. The only music I have
a problem with is Rap. Just don't see the appeal.
Food: I'm open to most things...Sushi, Pizza, Mexican, Italian,
Chinese, and Greek. I also love to cook out on the grill.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
(Not necessarily in that order)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Where my life is going, and where I want it to go
How my house can be clean, then 5 minutes after the kids get here,
a hurricane hits!
Why it rains every time I wash my Jeep or take the top off!
Who are these kids and why do they keep calling me Dad?
New thought: why do little girls love Tinker Bell so much. All she
did in Peter Pan was try to kill Wendy.
How much wood a woodchuck would chuck if a woodchuck could chuck
wood? I think about 2 cords, but I haven't been able to prove it
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Spending time with the kids at home, or sleeping. I wouldn't mind
replacing this with something a little more exciting!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I spend time thinking about woodchucks chucking wood
