"Thanks for noticing me...." - Eeyore (my favorite resident of the
Hundred Acre Wood)
I am optimistic, hardworking, family-oriented, open, thoughtful,
very patient, nurturing, loyal and an excellent listener. (I’m a
classic ISFJ “Protector - Guardian” personality type under the
Keirsey Temperament sorter; you can Google it if you want more
I was raised Protestant and I’m still spiritual, but I rarely
I’m comfortable with a wide range of people, cultures, and social
settings, maybe in part because I've traveled to over 20
I am the product of Small Town America, and prefer small towns to
big cities; but I realize each has its good points and its
I have a military background (with the Air Force) and I was a
licensed foster parent (teen mothers, sibling groups, etc.)... I'm
not easily frightened - or shocked... :-)
What I’m doing with my life
I’m the father of four good kids, three boys and a girl. They live
with their mother, but our split was amicable and we have shared
parenting; so I’m still very active in their lives. I’m also a
leader with Boy Scouts of America, a Search Angel, and a
“homemaker” in addition to working full time. So I'm fairly

personal life, and I genuinely miss having a special woman to share
things with. So I’m re-entering the dating scene after an absence

I'm not *completely* incompatible with... ;-)
I’m really good at

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Favorite book: Probably Robert Heinlein's "Time Enough For Love"... But Douglas Adams "A Hitchhiker's Guide to the Universe" is a very close second...
Favorite movies: "Monty Python and The Holy Grail"; "Animal House"; "Pharaoh's Army"; "Taking Chance" and "The Quiet Man"...
Favorite musical: "Paint Your Wagon" ( Clint Eastwood AND Lee Marvin - and they SING!... It just doesn't get much better than that!... LOL...)
Favorite music: Classic Rock, Contemporary Country
Favorite food: Italian (by a hair) followed by Everything Else
The six things I could never do without
Seriously, we can all do without a lot of *things* if we have to... But I hope I will always blessed with...
My Extended Family/Friends
My Morning Coffee
I spend a lot of time thinking about
what I need to be focusing on next... I'm always juggling multiple
things, but I *usually* keep everything airborne... ;-)
On a typical Friday night I am
either with my kids (I have them every other weekend) or just
chilling around the house or maybe with friends somewhere...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
is all included in my profile... (I'm completely comfortable
discussing private matters one-on-one, I would NEVER post anything
truly private online...)
You should message me if
I sound like someone you'd like to get to know better... :-)
