I've raised the kids on my own since 1990 as well. My daughter is disabled after a car accident, and lives here. Other than occasionally depending on me for transportation, she's pretty independent. My son is out on his own, but lives locally so we see each other regularly.
I'm a factory worker; often it's paycheck to paycheck, but I don't owe anybody anything. I have many hobbies, but mostly it's all things guitar, bike (bicycle) riding, concerts, painting, the beach, hiking, kayaking, all of which are more fun when there's two. Sorry, I don't do motorcycles, guns or gambling. I'm 275 lbs. which makes me a bit of a big guy, so if it's an adonis that you're after, that wouldn't be me. I'm not financially secure, well traveled, or well read, nor do I look good in a swimsuit.
I'm a tree hugging liberal, so I guess this rules out conservatives, tea partiers, nazis/biker chicks, and born agains.
I have no previous relationships that would in any way interfere with any new ones. I don't believe in hopping in the rack with anyone I wouldn't be willing to make a permanent part of my life.
I quit smoking 10 years ago, and I'm long past the desire to light up, so smokers are welcome, but please no unresolved substance issues.
So, please write if you think we'd make a pair. Within reason, age, weight, and race are irrelevant. Thanks for reading this far. I hope to hear from you.
