Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
"The sweetest kiss I ever got is the kiss I've never tasted." Where
I'm a caring, respectable and responsible man who, like most people
on here, is looking for someone who will be my new best friend from
the opposite sex. If you're looking for honesty and integrity and a
sense of humor, you just found your guy. If you want someone who
can be a little crazy and not a couch potato, yep, I'm that man
I was married a long time with no regrets for the time we spent
together yet apart long enough to not be looking over my shoulder
and wondering about the past. I've worked hard in my life and
always felt I could do most anything I want to do if I apply
myself. I say this because as a youth I had little and rather than
complain or look for handouts, I did what was necessary to be
successful, however you define success.
I've done the hunting, fishing, camping thing. I did a little
motorcycle riding (dirt bike) but that was in a past life. Sorry
ladies but you won't see pictures of me holding a fish here and I
don't have a Harley to ride on. By the way, if dangling a dead fish
on a string is what it takes to attract you then I encourage you to
stop reading right here - LOL!
Do I want more than a best friend? It's funny that you should ask.
Yes I do and yet there is no rush to get there although I feel that
clock ticking within. By this I mean that it will come and I don't
feel compelled to force it to happen. I'd love to have fun with you
but I'd much rather have fun with only you. Certainly a good friend
is a great place to start. I wear my heart on my sleeve and I
believe the more you give, the more you get in return. I won't last
with a selfish person.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm still trying to figure out what I want to do when I grow up!
Actually, I've spent my entire working career with the same
company. It's a rarity these days. I travel sometimes in spurts but
it seems to balance. I've visited many countries around this world.
I coached competitive ice hockey for twenty years and sometimes
entertain whether I want to do it again. Several of my kids were
good enough to be drafted into the professional ranks. I think more
and more about retirement now and that's a story in itself. I
really enjoy rehabbing real estate and see myself doing this in my
retirement just to stay active. It won't be "9-5" and an every week
endeavor but it will keep me mentally stimulated.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Fixing houses, building custom golf clubs, solving problems,
massage, singing in the shower, reading minds :-)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My smile. I still have all my Chicklets :-) Do thyey still sell
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I like sports, home improvement, comedy and self improvement, so
books and shows along those lines are good. I enjoyed reading Many
Lives - Many Masters by Michael Weiss. I like action or drama
movies. Criminal Minds, Person of Interest, Numb3rs, Palladia, Home
improvement programs, Tosh-O and some sports shows hold my
interest. I'm teaching myself to play the guitar so right now I
like "my" music best but I actually am a classic rock guy who
listens to many kinds of music. I recently stumbled across a
musician named Sixto Rodriguez from Detroit. What a great human
interest story he has behind him. Thought to be dead by his fans,
he is the most famous musician ever in South Africa. I'm more of a
meat and potato's guy and I'm not completely lost in the kitchen.
There is a fair list of foods I prefer not to eat. Sushi and
cauliflower would be a good place to start
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Mental stimulation, Music for my soul, Food, Water, Shelter, Love,
Inspiration, Sunny days & Your Smile. Ok, so I gave 9 and don't
take orders well :-)
It was challenging not to mention golf here :-( That's where the
screen name Two-Putt-Ray emanates from.... It's a favorite hobby,
not my career.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I think about how I want to spend my remaining years, who I might
spend them with and where I'll live when I'm not committed to my
current employer. I think a lot about the economy and the
out-of-control direction America is heading in the hands of our
elected bureaucrats, none of whom I feel care about us as much as
personal interest, and how it affects me, my children and their
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Often times I golf and have dinner with high school buddies. 10-15
guys gather every week like clockwork and it amazes me how this has
endured all these years. During the winter, it's darts night with
the same crew and their wives. I'm one of three guys that shows up
without an escort. Boo-Hoo. I like going out to listen to a live
band on Saturday or when ever the opportunity arises. This could
also be a dancing night with you however. If I stay home alone,
that's okay too. I like my quiet time with my guitar. Just because
I golf, throw darts, play guitar or like to rehab real estate or
"whatever", does not mean you should love this too. I'll be happy
to experience what you love to broaden my experiences.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I think a woman with a pony tail and a baseball cap is sexy
Oh - I took the age test and it says I'm 46, hence the age range
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You should message me if you like my profile and just want to say
hello. Life is short and I have beaten myself up several times for
letting opportunity slip away. There is no better time than the
present. If it's a bad fit, you move on and no harm. If it's a good
fit, take advantage of the opportunity and know a door was opened
for a reason. They say opportunity is where luck meets preparation.
Did we not prepare our profile to have the best possible
opportunity on here?
Now, if you read this far, there was a reason. Write something to
me and ask a question or two. I answer all questions. I'm not
writing to everyone who looks at my profile but I do answer anyone
who took the time to show an interest by saying a few words and
asking something that requires a response! Ok girls, time to find
the message button and start typing... :-)
