Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Single dad to two wonderful children & working hard to make
sure their needs are met - they are my #1's, and they are my
A simple guy who works hard, and likes to enjoy my time off looking
for someone to spend some time with. I'm not in any big rush to
jump into any sort of serious long-term relationship, or anything,
and am not seeking just a random hook-up either. I'm also NOT
against something developing down the road should that be the case
either - I do believe that someone out there in this crazy place we
call home there is someone who will simply grab my attention and my
heart upon meeting them, but until that day happens, I've always
felt that time is better spent with friends and those you have
common interests with.
Not really into the whole "running/biking/swimming" thing - it's
just never been me. I do go out on the occasional hike (Pt. Reyes,
Hendy Woods, etc), but it's simple hiking, not going straight up
the side of a mountain or anything, so I won't even say I'm an
"outdoors" type of person, to avoid giving the wrong impression. Do
enjoy camping though, and want to get back into that hopefully
What I also enjoy is exploring one of the greatest areas within the
U.S. - the bay area. With so much to see and do pretty much at our
fingertips, I really find myself spoiled living here and know
there's so much more I'd like to see.
What else can be said about me? That's always a tough one... I like
to view life as always evolving and never set, and I've come to
appreicate the fact that we can't take it for granted either,
otherwise what kind of life would that be?
I've lived all 37 years of my life with one simple principle - live
large, or go home. Also, I live my life with no regrets. That
doesn't mean I am going to go around living carelessly, but it does
mean that I live to enjoy each day like there may not be a
tomorrow, even if that day is spent working a 12-hour shift at
work. You never know when your number will be called so why not
just try and enjoy what your're doing, even if it's riding a
crowded N-car in the city, or standing in line at the DMV in
Petaluma, or stuck in traffic on highway 80 in Oakland?
I've really turned over a new leaf within the last 2 years of my
eat, to concerts, to discovering what lies within our own life
& have seen many new doors open for me & have discovered
many new interests - from foods I never thought I'd never try' to
really getting out there and exploring my backyard and beyond. Plus
I've learned to do this all while living within my means, and with
a smaller footprint on the planet.
These are just a few of the views I'd like to share with those
close to me - to simply... BE... Be you, be yourself, and be what
you want to be, because that's how I choose to live, and I'd love
to hear some of your stories.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm living it day to day and making the best of it! Working with my
kids' mom (of whom I get along with civilly and can Co - parent
well with) to show my kids that life does go on post - divorce and
that family time still can exist. This will always be the most
important factor of my life.
Also figuring out this new (to me) world of dating. Seems a
lot has changed since 1999 and quite honestly, I find it
Learning to balance a work/social/fatherhood life all while making
sure each day counts.
Lastly, letting life lead me in new directions, and remaining
curious about what my future holds and very optimistic &
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
First and foremost, being a father. It's the greatest thing I can
really imagine having in my life. I'm also good at wearing bullshit
goggles and can tell when someone is lying to me. I may not have
the best eyesight in the world but I do have great ears and can
listen whenever someone needs to talk. Lastly, I can make people
laugh - humor is an important quality to me, both within me, as
well as any potential mate of mine.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
It never fails, the first thing that people say when they see me is
that I am really tall. I'm only 6 foot 3 but I guess that must be
tall huh? People also comment on my smile and say how nice of a
smile it is.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I'm totally into the scary stuff, be it on the small screen or the
large screen. Some of my more recent favorites have included:
* The Walking Dead
* The Conjuring
* World War Z
* Under the Dome (Huge King fan!)
And some of my classic favorites include:
* The Fog (the original by John Carpenter)
* Final Destination (the original)
* Flash Forward (was a series on ABC)
* Harpers Island (series on CBS)
* Murder in Small Town X (series on Fox)
As for food, I'm very simple but lately I've been trying many new
things from many different ethnicities (again, such a great treat
to live in the bay area). But my favorite food still remains a big
ass hamburger with onion rings and a great beer to go with it.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
the 6 things that I could not go without, would be my kids, my
family, my beliefs, my morals, my job (or any job), or my cell
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Spending a lot of time thinking about stuff can be dangerous...
stopping to think about the past cam trigger bad memories and
thinking about the figure can potentially freak someone out about
some random potential future that may or may not happen. I've
learned that aside from my kids, it's often better not to think
long an hard about things, but rather to simply enjoy the life you
have right there in front of you - live in the moment.
~ but ~
I do think a lot about the fact that I am glad Carly Rae's song
"Call me maybe" isn't popular anymore! Got so sick to all of the
references to that song lol!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
On a typical Friday night I am usually doing 1 of 3 things. I'm
here with my kids as they are going to spend the weekend with me,
or hanging out with friends, or working overtime.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
The most private thing that I'm willing to admit is that I am blind
in my right eye. I was born that way and know no differently.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
* If your "enemy" percentage isn't very high - not sure how this
site calculates how much percentage an enemy could become to
someone else but there must be some secret methods.
* If you're interested in talking to a humorous guy that likes to
* If you can carry on a decent coversation.
* If your profile doesn't have a picture of your car in it.
* If you're not on probation or parole.
* If you know the difference between their, there, and
* If you don't use netspeak.
* If you liked reading my profile.
* And lastly, if you don't take yourself too seriously - I am a
humorous guy most of the time and would expect the same from
someone I'd be interested in :-)
