Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I have been gone from this site for quite a while because I met a
truly wonderful woman here and I want to thank OK Cupid for that.
And, while we weren't the life long partners we wanted to be, my
life was, is and will forever be enriched for having known her. I
just re-read this and the phrase "having known her" sounds like she
died. In reality she is one of my best friends, we are just not a
Now back to the search for my bashert. I'm a good guy; I am
affectionate, very caring and honest to a fault. I am happy, well
adjusted and desire someone who shares these characteristics to
share my (and their) life.
I am Socially liberal/ fiscally conservative. I am a hunter; I
believe everyone should own a gun; affordable healthcare should be
in the Bill of Rights; everyone should have the right to marry who
they love, and a woman has the right to choose. Are you still
there? Good, then read on...
What I'm looking for is relatively simple: an attractive,
intelligent woman with a good sense of humor. Someone who is
affectionate, caring, considerate, loyal, appreciative and wants a
man who offers the same qualities. If you are looking to cultivate
a real relationship with a destination, contact me. Tell me what
your physical, emotional & psychological, needs, desires and
requirements are, and I will tell you about mine. It all begins
with chemistry. Chemistry is everything!
My dislikes are: Liars, Wasting time, Inconsiderate people and
Tomboys (I don't mean I dislike women in pants or jeans or any
thing like that; but I'm NOT AT ALL attracted to the type of woman
who doesn't wear make up and nail polish. Oh, and I HATE WIGS. So,
if wear a wig or don't wear nail polish please do not bother to
Oh, and I am also brilliant, funny, and if you can't tell, modest
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Making a difference and planning to make a BIG difference. One of
the most important things in my life is to leave this world a
better place for my having been here. I am a Lector, Pastoral
Council Member, former youth minister and I chair an endowment that
supports Catholic education. Also, I am a single parent of an
extraordinary 18 year old daughter. I'm also snowboarding, surfing,
dirtbiking and own a hang glider.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
A lot of things (see, told ya I was modest!), the thing I am good
at and most proud of are my parenting skills. My daughter has a 4.2
GPA, ranked 3rd nationally in the 2014 Le Grand Concours» (the
National French Exam), Gold medal in the 2014 National Latin Exam;
doing a USC EiHS stem cell research summer internship, is a
starting OPP on her club volleyball team; and just received early
admission to Harvard.
I am a Program Manager in Information Technology Projects &
Strategic Planning. A writer; I used to write television (as a paid
professional not a wanna be).
The first things people usually notice about me

I am a big guy (no not a FAT guy). I am 6'4" 220 lbs and my friends
say my smile and laughter are contagious (but what do they know).

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Excluding the obvious (God, air, sustenance etc.)
I could not do without:

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I spend a lot of time thinking about everything from the meaningful
to madness, from the major to minutia. ...and I enjoy discussing it
all just as much. I am at home discussing "Face The Nation" or
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Currently, there are no typical Friday nights for me, however, I am
open to everything from a formal affair to a midnight picnic or
just snuggling on the couch in front of the television.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
C'mon who would admit something that they actually thought of as
private here in this "public" forum. Let's email and talk, then
meet. If we have chemistry, we will get to know each other and
there will be nothing that I won't share.
You should message me if

*I have an extremely busy life and it can take weeks to schedule
new things into it. This is a plus for me since I prefer to
exchange emails for at least a couple of weeks before we talk on
the phone. Then I usually talk to one woman at a time for another
couple of weeks before our first date. I am extremely patient and I
find that this process weeds out the crazies. Crazies and stalkers
are not patient and cannot wait this long. I have had women who've
only met me by email simply show up at my office and even my
daughter's volleyball games. So if this process is not for you, I
understand and good luck to you.
