Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
It is tough to describe oneself in a pithy and concise way while
also being intriguing and fully informative. I don't want my
profile to sound like a sales pitch for a used car..."look, I'm
shiny...clean...one owner...with low miles and 5 cup
So, let's start with facts. That way, if the criteria below doesn't
match the required list in your head, you can save time and click
on to the next profile. :)
1. I own my home. It's not palatial but it is nice, in a decent
neighborhood and an older home, which is what I like. I enjoy
things with vintage and classic styles.
2. I have a job. It's a career, really, and one that has provided
all I need and some of what I want for many years. I like balance
3. I am divorced. It has been 5 years and she is since re-married.
No marriage hangover, wistful pining or bitterness. I'm very
4. I have time. My career and schedule affords me the ability to go
and do and see and be with people who are important to me. It's
that whole balance, thing, I mentioned above.
5. I am a Dad. My kids are from one mother, yes one, and I like
being a Dad. It's one of the joys of life. However, because of the
shared custody, I get to enjoy a lot more in addition to my
I think that's the top 5. If I missed any, just ask and I'll
happily fill you in.
Well, I want to find a woman who is smart, fun and funny,
attractive with her own style and who is affectionate and open
minded and not a prude.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working, enjoying life and making the most of things. I'm raising
kids 50/50 with their Mom, no drama, just focus on the kids...week
on week off custody. When not focusing on them I'm always trying to
improve in my career and to seek out and experience new and
exciting things and people and places. When the weather is right I
enjoy my motorcycle, but I don't live on it. :)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I like historical non-fiction for the most part but some fiction,
if based on actual events, is great too. Movies I enjoy must make
me laugh. Music is confined mostly to modern alternative rock and
metal or classical and jazz...anything really EXCEPT modern country
music. Food I enjoy is everyting but Chinese and Italian, however
will always treat someone special to what they like to eat just to
see their smile.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Smartphone, I eliminated my landline years ago. Music both live and
most genres of recorded music. Roof over my head. I own my own home
and enjoy having the responsibility. Travel to weekend getaways and
events. Time to spend with family and enjoying life.
Car/vehicle...I am not defined by what I drive but rather utilize
my car to go to where and to what defines me.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The future and what might be life's next big adventure while
appreciating my life for what it is right now.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
When kids with me, enjoying a quiet evening at home with them or
taking them to festivals or events. When kids are at their Mom's, I
am usually out to find and enjoy live music or traveling to some
fun weekend getaway.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You enjoy modern rock, the arts, and are open-minded and
energetic...but most important is if you are someone smart, fun and
funny, outgoing and adventurous. Racists, prudes, the
